    Yeah. One of my buddies played on it a little bit during a huge like 10 game win streak last season.

    I played Zarya mostly though. Had good games with her, but not that good.

    Last season I placed down 600 from my normal and had to grind my way up 500 SR. Still finished below where I normally hover (Low plat.) I had a friend who placed 500 above where he normally finished and he ended the season down 450 points from his placement.

    I had SO MUCH more fun than he did. If I could place at 1000 every season I would.

    I suck and mostly hover in high silver. It's definitely more fun in that people don't get as tilted, but it can be so goddamn frustrating when you get a bunch of Hanzo/Genji autolocks who seem to ignore the objective. Don't understand why those people don't stick in quick play.

    Yeah gold plat is the sweet spot IMO. People on mics most of the time. No one gets super mad and it's pretty chill most of the time.

    Best way to play this game is 6v6 premades. Coordination and teamplay make the game amazing.

    A buddy and I have been playing since a little after launch. Tried to convince our friends to buy in and they all had the same excuses.

    “Not my type of game.”
    “Too cartoony”

    Two years later and they all own and love the game.

    Brigitte in comp today. Gonna be weird to see the meta shift, if at all. Seems like a 3 support meta incoming. Assuming junkrat will be the staple dps.

    What was blizzard thinking?

    I've continued playing this game way longer than most other games I buy.

    Seen lots of complaining on reddit that tanks are being left by the wayside. It's unbelievably difficult in solo queue, I've basically given up in favor of support, usually Lucio.

    Rein and Winston get slaughtered by Bridgette, but Rein is strong with a Brigette on his team

    Brigette was made to counter Rein, but her tuning is off OP right now.

    No, she was made to counter dive. Rein didnt need a counter bc he was rarely used. Until brigitte came along bc they kinda have to be played together.

    Okay fine I'll get it. I can only find the legendary edition on the ps store on my phone, though. Not paying $60 for a game that's been out for a few years

    there is only that edition. wait for sale.

    its also a blizzard game so "out a few years" doesn't mean the same

    Just saw where OW league signed a TV deal with espn and Disney. All of there stuff will be broadcasted on ESPN 3, Disney XD, and some of the finals will be on ESPN or ESPN2.

    Patiently waiting for the outrage it will bring from the Bubba Rays of the world.

    Not sure why I’ve waited so long to get more into competitive mode. There’s some shitty people like with any game but so much more organized and fun to play.

    Won the first couple matches pretty easily and did well as Rein

    Fifth match, someone sent me a ‘please quit’ message so then I felt I’d truly arrived
