That Zarya Epic recolor... why??
My god, except for Moira everything about Archives revealed so far is so boring. I really wonder what are they doing. It's like they are not even trying.

Question: I started a new account on PS4, I'm still grinding to level 25 so I can play Competitive. But I was wondering does my performance in quickPlay affect my starting/placement rank in competitive when it's a brand new account?
tfw your 2 dps can't take out a pharah. lets just swap off hitscan all together
As a healer main I know the pain of a Pharah doing uncontested damage to your team. But in my experience I found the best counter to Pharah is with a Sombra, since Pharah players tend to panic when they're grounded with no mobility.

Yes, your quickplay performance is used to establish an initial baseline for competitive.

Bastion skin is whatever, good idea but it‘s pretty dull imo
gearbot still the best

I like the Zarya skin, good color scheme and the weapon will look good in first person

surprised at no casual jacket/hat D.Va as seen in her short

feeling underappreciated. as a support player willingly to play solo tank (Orisa/dva) because we got 3 dps instalocks, a zen and some other support, who initiated the whole lets not be toxic and have 3 dps, ends up not healing the team when the zen held gold healing until the end of the game going into 5-4 (Horizon). i was fine with the 3dps actually. they killed things. its the dying as your only shield on point. zen tried best.

User Banned (1 Day): Inappropriate language + Inflammatory generalisations.
Every skin reveal for every event is a reminder of how mentally ill DVa fans are

like seriously what the fuck is wrong with you

It's been a good year or so since I've played a lot and among the things I'm noticing is yeah, a lot of Moira's seem to play DPS first and then heal only when there's nothing else to do. If I'm on a team and the Moira is the only healer, I play like we have no healer.
In my experience most will decide to heal after the enemy team is dead, but during the fights most Moiras never use healing orb or normal heal ability. I'd like to see her main attack not self heal her.

the only time they start to heal is when the team dies in front of them. RIP
Whenever I play as her, I swear people forget that she is a short range healer who cannot heal through shields. Teammates playing footsie with the enemies Winston shield while he kills me is annoying when I try to follow them into the front line.

Pretty sure data west is talking about the legion of D.Va fans who go mental in the responses on the OW Twitter each time a skin revealed isn't D.Va. Or the B.net forums. Either way the comment isn't... unwarranted.

Ah okay thanks, time to put on my tryHard hat lol.
Yes, your quickplay performance is used to establish an initial baseline for competitive.
Is this actually true though? I've seen a lot of people say that, but from personal experience and from even high level streamers on new accounts, the first placement game always seems to be somewhere in gold. Unless those high level players are just buying accounts that have already been leveled up. Mainly looking at Kabaji, he's now done 3 of his unranked to GM accounts and all three the first placement game was somewhere in gold. I can't imagine if he leveled up an account in QP it would make him start there.

For an epic skin, I actually don't think this is too bad. The blue of her uniform looks too similar to her default, but Zarya's hair looks pretty good here.

But this means I was wrong. No Overwatch Winston skin is forthcoming after all, since we know the final skin is Ashe and Bob. Honestly, I was expecting a tracer skin atleast, but apparently not.

Like I said before, I just wish they weren't using 75% characters that they already used in other events.

But I guess it doesn't really matter so long as they give you a mode where you can pick whatever hero you want. Just a shame other ow don't get the starring roles.

I am so sick of Tracer and Soldier. Just phase them out from the main storyline.

Give me more lore on Genji/Hanzo and Lucio/Symmetra.

QP performance probably matters a little bit. My first ever placement a few months ago was in low diamonds.
