Oh my lawd. Volskaya....

*ahem*

So it starts out as Volskaya on Defense. We have a pretty reasonable comp, but get absolutely melted and lost A and B with then having like 6.36 left. It felt like game over, pack up and go home.

BUT NO.

I go Lucio for boosts and we push well on A, don't quite take it but things are getting interesting. They have triple tank though and we're lacking in outright DPS (we had someone with like a bajillion hours on Widow and a Genji whose game bugged outt on him so he was basically afk for a minute)....so I switch to Zen for Transcendence but also Discord Orb to help burst down the Tanks and snipe their pretty godly Ana. We end up miraculously taking A and B only about 10 secs slower than they did. It seems like the game is back on.

BUT NO.

We hold out at A for about 6 mins, really, really wellr...but we lose A and they rush us so hard on B it we just struggle, but we just about manage to hold it. Until overtime. Fucking. Overtime. A Hanzo Ult that zones us leaves me (still Zen) to go full Kamehameha and I take down Roadhog and D.va and almost get Rein, before their Soldier appears outta fucking nowhere and bye-bye me, bye bye B. 4-2, feels like its all over.

BUT NO.

With the team firing on all cylinders we're like a max level MMO character ganking low level scrubs, it's DOUBLE KILL here and there, Mercy using revives in a clutch and it goes so well. Back to 4-4. How much more can my heart take.

It ends up a draw, both teams collapse. Might not be an SR loss, or gain but damn. These matches make Comp so good sometimes.

Also D.Va can really handle dive comps. It's nice.

Maybe I should stop playing Shieldman and go back to killing things instead of trying to keep the other team from killing us...

Played four solo comp games last night. Dropped 8 SR.

Also, from looking at those sites recently, I'm realizing that they're basically terrible at tracking heroes played and wins accurately, especially if you switch heroes in-game.

25 games I think. I've heard that number mentioned and mine seemed to end around there.

People have a few good games on a hero and routinely come back with "WOW THIS HERO CAN CARRY HARDDDDD", but reality, especially as it relates to OW and "carrying", is a bit more nuanced.

She also feels really good when you have a solid Tracer on your team. Keep bubbles on Cheers Love, generate charge, clean up stragglers when the enemy team starts to scatter because the Calvary's Here.

I noticed this whenever I left the base, just walking forward, but I had assumed it was lag, because I never noticed it during the chaos of combat.

I only realized it now that I'm trying to play Nioh and my character can't keep a full running animation for more than a second before slowing down, then running again.

Holy christ. It wasn't me sucking. All this time, it wasn't me sucking!

(it might have still been me sucking, but harder than I should be)

That's rough buddy.

A good Genji player is actually the hardest for me to deal with. Last comp game, the other team had one. Combined with the Sombra, they went from Overtime on the first route, to near completion at the end. It shut my soldier down pretty well.

For some reason, they switched off Genji on the first point on Defense to a Lucio. When their Genji went, my soldier took control of the game. Went from Overtime on the first point, to a minute+ less. With me racking up some 30kills between just those two points.

I'm at 35v/50h myself for most characters. Genji is something like 45v/60h. Rein/sym/winston and the like are 70/70.

Only ever seem to get this if you are much higher than the enemy team or everyone on the enemy team leaves.

8th on the wall of shame. Was expecting higher tbh.

Made it back to diamond after placing low platinum lol. I never earnt less than 40 SR and for a couple of games I got 100 SR+ because of win streak.

I'll make a push for masters but will be happy with mid diamond.

Man what is up low master players thinking they can do whatever they want not caring about comp and thinking its all okay cause youre disconnected from voice chat before match.

Honestly its like as soon as they get into masters you can pick 3 or 4 dps and expect everyone else to change.

Low masters has all the people who grow a big ego because they think they're super good at the game now and can carry if they instalock DPS.

She's definitely a huge utility to her team, and with a good/decent team, can be constantly melting enemies. It feels reaaaaally good when you clutch as Zarya :)

Love having a ballsy tracer I can pocket shield for energy, but sometimes I have to play more defensively with my bubbles (damn you, Roadhog).

Coming toward me, jumps at just the right time to avoid my damage.
Dashes through me - where'd he go?
Probably behind me.
Nope, not there either.
Above me?
I'll never know because I'm dead.

Good Genji players are terrifying, but I'll still fight a Genji over a Tracer any day.

They had to be very similar and if anything we were lower, my friend and I are around the same rank. The messed up part is we carried the team and won by a hair. I quit for the night after that crab.
