    We weren't even going to play OW in the first place, but SMITE kicked me out of a loading screen and promptly gave me a 30 minute ban. Thank you SMITE servers for fucking up.

    Shit, it's solo queue and probably only one heals so i dont even have interest in triple tank. 3 dps can work just not junk, bastion, and sombra on attacl

    I agree, can win with 3, but not ideal. It's 4 that chaps my ass. That and when a party of 2 or more ALL pick DPS.

    Had a match earlier that consisted of pharah, genji, and tracer dps while attacking hanamura. they all 3 stayed behind the rein shield for 4 minutes. switch to defense, two get picked within 10 seconds and the point is capped within 30. really awful shit.

    I just won a game on CRIPES ALLMIGHTY (my alt account) because the morons on the enemy team left the payload to get ONE FUCKING KILL (as everyone else was dead) in OT when it was basically about 10 meters from an easy win. :facepalm: I'm just trying to get losses here, and that does not help.

    Edit: This was a ~3450 rated team too.

    Why do people assume soldier is an instant death for pharah? Good pharah players jump in and out of cover harassing everyone, and if soldier has to focus her, he's vulnerable to others.

    Sure, you can melt her if she's close, but more and more pharahs are just playing the nuisance role. Makes her hard as hell to kill, and will often get you out of position in team fights. Sometimes it's better to have 2 counters.

    Biggest struggle for me when I play non-dps role is getting heals. Since triple tank is the meta, people insist on playing it. Not viable if support keeps getting out of position and dying. I much prefer 2/2/2 at the "lower" levels of SR.

    I mean, you can either get a soldier to attempt to bring down pharah or she can stay in the air and harass everyone

    That's true, but killing a pharah a mile high in the sky is really hard to do. If the pharah is dumb enough to get mid/close range, she will die. Otherwise, you're just tickling her and not making progress on the objective. I get that she's annoying, and pharah will get kills, but what does it matter if your team pushed the objective in the process?

    /solider main tired of teammates complaining about pharah. If I'm having trouble killing her, help or switch up team comp to make her a non issue if it's that important.

    True a good Pharah is hard to kill sometimes. If I'm playing soldier I ask for help from diva or sambra or whoever is around that can

    Because a pharah good enough to do that not being harassed is going to end up destroying your healers and other dps.

    If you're having trouble killing pharah as 76 then you need to ask for help from dva. As someone who mained pharah the first 2 seasons, dva can be the most annoying thing to deal with if it's done correctly. Or if you're running a zen as healer request that the discord go on her whenever she's visible. At that point you can shoot her down as 76 almost immediately.

    If there's a pharah/mercy combo, then you're absolutely just going to need help taking them out.

    There's also the possibility of a double hit scan team in the form of McCree and 76

    As a squishy heals main pharah is a son of a bitch. If there's one I have to deal with I definitely play zen to get that discord. it helps tremendously.

    Speaking of pharah, i've been playing her a lot on attack recently. it's so easy to cap points in solo queue with her, especially when your team insists on poking the choke and making no progress. hop over to the point, half the team will leave the choke make it too vulnerable. obv can be done with tracer, genji, and sombra too but pharah is a lot tougher to kill.

    So how is this game with noob matchmaking?

    I haven't played since I typiclaly stray from any and all shooters (last one i spent time with was Halo 3). But say i pick it up --- do they do a good job of matching new/bad players together or is it like Call of Duty where i get thrown in and guys are bombing me with airplanes while I hold a BB gun?

    It's a skill based matchmaking so you'll be playing against similarly skilled people.

    I've no idea how to play the new map still.

    Although I did figure out on the map with the highway that you can jump on the car as Zarya with a bubble on and it'll give you 40 charge as well as take you straight to the hill.

    Can do the same with mei as well

    Not only is it skill based but competitive has two different skill ratings it uses for matchmaking.

    I dont really expect many changes. maybe you'll see 2-2-2 more often, but we've been seeing aolo heals, single tank, and triple dps comps since the patch with the symmetra changes.

    maybe stop trying to carry and start trying to play with your team
    or find people to play with
    or have a more positive approach.

    but i'm mostly confused by you playing with koreans

    Lets start an overwatch youtube channel for console players to ecourage them to stop trying to solo heal quad dps with ana, among other things console players shouldnt be doing.
