I fucking hate Mercy so much. The epitome of Q to win


(Van Slab) #506

I just watched @Noodle get gold damage as Mercy it was peaceful

Comp patch out, will change next season so read the patch notes.


(Ryan Roberts) #508

I couldn’t see anything in the patch notes, but can teams pick multiples of the same hero in competitive?


(DayC) #509

@Tugsy @Sync says he played with double Zarya this morning.


(Gavin Rainey) #510

yeah no hero limitation as of right now.


(Ryan Roberts) #511

I think this is the one thing I would like to see in competitive… I can see some teams running some troll lineups doing very well in this mode now.


#512

Something hit me today, I’ve always thought I’m benefiting the team because I nearly always have a positive K/D ratio… But in this game you’ve really got to strive for double your death rate because most of the time 2 people will be attributed to a kill.


(Ryan Roberts) #513

The most important stat for me has always been damage done, then eliminations.


(Ben ) #514

The most important stat will always be direct rocket Hit %


(Lethal) #515

Yer don’t do a Sublime, 5000 shots fired, 50 hit, shittest long range aim EU.

Don’t go chasing stats, they are mostly meaningless. It’s easy to top damage as any hero if you’re against a Reinhardt. Same as when a Reinhardt has silly damage blocked, it means nothing if he was stood on his own all game protecting no-one.

Each hero has a role, and each role has a simple objective. These are what you should be focusing on, provided you’re doing you’re objective you’re playing fine, any medals are an added bonus. A few examples are as a flanker you need to be taking out the healers / sniper. As a Widow or S76 you must be killing Pharah the second she enters the fight, as Pharah make sure you’re keeping the turrets down if they have a Toj or Bastion.

If you achieve your objective you’ve made the fight a whole lot easier for your team and you’re now able to help them with their objectives. Medals are good for XP, that’s about it.

I’d say stats are pretty big actually. I lost 7 of my placements but still got rank 52 (still shit but considering I lost so much not the worst) because I had 2-3 golds literally every game.


(Xenoscythe) #518

my ranked solo experience consists of


Fairly certain medals mean jack shit since i finished every promo game with usually a minimum of 2 golds and i still came out rank 49. Every game since has been the same, still lose a shit tonne of exp for a loss and gain the same back for a win. Yet i play against far better people in quick play when solo queueing?


(Xenoscythe) #519

i really dont get how it works anything out, standard shitty blizzard ranking system




#520

Control point maps are bugged atm and aren’t giving the correct xp, I assume it’s that in this case? Blizz are aware and looking to fix asap apparently.


(Xenoscythe) #521

That would make a bit more sense.


(Scott) #522

tfw you’ve had 37 golds across 16 ranked games but still losing more than winning


(Dean) #523

I didn’t mean in regards to your rank, not a clue how or if it affects it. Also your placements were based on your QM MMR, so if you went 3-7 and ended up at 52 you probably had a solid QM MMR.

I was more stating that chasing stats doesn’t win games and to not worry too much about them.
