The introduction of new characters during a competitive season turns the whole season to crap, and I think it has happened with almost every new character. Competitive mode is now; let’s see how this new character plays. The majority of players have 0 time or a few matches on her but they don’t care about winning just trying out the new character.
I understand that this move brings more players to the game, which is important - but it makes the game a nightmare for the existing players, it screws with your comp rating, you cannot enjoy most of the games played, team play goes right out the window, other players flame the player who has chosen the new char with no xp/time on them which tilts the whole team, which leads to ridiculous compositions as players are done with the match before it even begins, all game flaming etc etc etc…
If you crew are not going to manage the integrity of competitive in any reasonable way, and throw seasons into disarray so a new player can be pushed out then what’s the point of comp at all?
As a long time regular player it really makes me feel like Blizzard/Overwatch do not care about individual experiences.
