I get matched with a four-stack that decides to go quad DPS. They didn't get a single kill. We had one tank and a healer. How is this not a reportable offense? This is a completely unwinnable team composition. When you're in a stack like this, you control the team comp. There's little to nothing the solo player(s) can do to determine the outcome when they're matched with an entire group of players who are effectively throwing the game. And this happens all the time. Why is there no solo queue in this three-year-old game?
Stacks bigger than 2 all insta-locking DPS is one of the most annoying things.
Like a bunch of seperate solo people going DPS is one thing, but as an actual group it's just stupid.

Gotta throw down matrix or kill everyone to secure the potg. Or field was used to counter an ult mightn’t have gotten it. Luckily playing as Orissa I get potg with her.
Well the immortality field countered two ULTs:

Rein used Hammer on 3 teammates, so I threw my immortality field saving my Mercy from the Rein charge/pin. At the same time, I heard JunkRat's "Fire in the hole!" so I jumped into the field myself just as Junk exploded his Tire from above.

EdiT: Hmm...I was thinking maybe OverWatch should give POTG (preference) to players who get an achievement.
Are people allergic to shooting the immortality drone? Why am I the only one shooting it, as Lucio 🤦‍♂️
My biggest problem playing as Baptiste are players who run Away from my immortality field when I put it down.🤦🏽

Also, if you're in mid-lower ranks like me (I'm Gold), you have to be a shot-caller and tell your team to focus the Drone, cause there's rarely any coordination on a single target.

Now that my PS4 has internet I might go back to playing Overwatch on PS4. My only real regret is that my laptop has the Bastet Ana skin while the PS4 doesn't. And it's really bothering me lol.

The fault lies in the creators of the game for purposely designing a game where the majority of the roster can’t be in the same composition. Tanks and healers are fucking boring.

If there was a solo queue these dicks would have nobody to play with. Blizzard rather have more players ruining games for others than less players but having good games.

Man I played my fucking ass off in Comp last night as Moira, I think I played six games and came out with gold medals in kills, damage, healing and objective time every single match and lost a shit ton of SR. In practically every match (spread across two different teams) nobody would focus the Mercy, instead decrying Bastions who a) weren't the problem and b) was getting rezzed every. Single. Time. He was downed stopping us from making any progress. Add to this nobody actually watching the healers back and screams of "I NEED HEALING! WHERE'S THE HEALING?!" I think I am about done with playing Comp. I think I'll grind out some boxes in the event and then either uninstall or stick to QP where I just do what the fuck I want and don't care about taking the L's. Losing so much SR despite bringing my A-game is just too much to take at times.

Wait a minute, why is that a legendary? It's just a recolor of main outfit except for his hair and some other minor tweak. I love it, but it should be an epic, shouldn't it?

Agreed:




At least it's better than the default.
Ah, okay, seeing them side by side, pretty much everything but the scarf has been changed, but the scarf is such a prominent feature, it looks like nothing was changed even though it was.

It's like Winston's subject 28 skin. Every aspect of the skin is different, but it's silloette maps onto Winstons' default so well that it's hard to tell.

they change a lot but that stupid scarf makes it look like it hasn't changed much
Right, not to discount the differences, but it just comes across so similar it makes you think it should be an Epic.

Become a Mercy god and you will fly through silver and gold.

yeah, even with Symmetra’s magician skin (which was also very much based on her default) there was enough of a difference that it resulted in a very different feeling costume, whereas a quick glance at this Baptiste skin and it just feels like a slight variation of his default

it’s fine
but it’s probably gonna be a bummer if I see a legendary pop out of a box and it’s this lol

Has anyone here changed their PSN and can confirm it doesn't mess up the link to your Blizzard account?

I basically want to know if I can keep racking up OWL tokens.

my only complaint would be that the upper portion of the coat being a separate separate piece on top of the rest of the coat is a weird look but otherwise I am pleased

I've been hoping for a Moira skin with a dress shirt and tie and this will do
