Weekend RAGE Thread – April 23, 2022

HERE YOU CAN GET RID OF ALL YOUR ANGER AND HATE.

CAPS ON AND LET IT ALL OUT.

GETTING NOTHING BUT DUPLICATES WHEN ALL YOU WANT IS THAT SWEET NEW TORBJÖRN SKIN? GETTING HEADSHOT BY ACROSS THE MAP BY HANZO? TOO MUCH JUSTICE THAT RAINS FROM ABOVE? THIS IS THE RIGHT THREAD!

PLEASE STILL BE CIVIL, AT LEAST A LITTLE!

    Idk what’s going on, but every comp match for the past two days has just been FULL of toxicity. I guess maybe people are getting back into OW because of creators releasing Alpha content and the toxicity came back with it?
    I’m not one to cry “sexism”, But it’s like as soon as I even try and talk or make a callout I’m just immediately flamed and told I’m the worst healer ever and all the typical troll trash talk & they start throwing the whole game & blaming me.

    All despite having gold medal all game, ending the match with anywhere from 18k-21k heals and ressing almost everyone at least once.

    WHY fam? You’re not tilting me, I know I’m not trash. No one else on the team is finding it funny or joining in on the meme if you can call it that. So… Sexism? I guess??

  2. I FREAKING HATE DOOMFIST MAIN PLAYERS!!! WHY THE HELL ARE THEY ALWAYS A GOD ON THE OTHER TEAM AND NOT MINE!!

  4. What is this matchmaking in QP lately? I went through a 20 game losing streak between two days (Flexing between the three roles as well). And all of them were absolute steamrolls. I had a 6-stack of *masters* players against my solo-queued team of Bronze/Silver (I was the highest at Plat). Two of the people I play with stopped playing because it just feels pointless. I get that people are coming back to the game, so their MMR is probably off, but this is the absolute worst it’s ever been. It’s like we can’t even play the game anymore.

    Being told to KYS in QP after saying gg multiple times a day and nothing being done about it is awesome! /s

  6. It’s almost ridiculous how difficult legendary Storm Rising is with the heroes we’re given. Last PvE achievements I need are both of Storm Risings, I’ve been at it for hours. 😩

  7. OVERWATCH HAS BEEN OUT FOR ALMOST 6 YEARS AND THE CLOSEST THING WE HAVE TO STAR GUARDIAN/SAILOR MOON SKINS IS PINK MERCY. PLEASE PLEASE GOD OF OW2 BRING US SKINS OF THIS THEME I KNOW EVERY GAME DOES IT BUT I LOVE IT I HOPE THE SKINS IN OW2 ARE AMAZING FUN AND GRAND!!!! I HATE THAT OW HAD ALWAYS SEEMED TO PLAY IT SAFE!!

  8. IF YOU PLAY SOMBRA IN TOTAL MAYHEM, YOUR MOM’S A HOE.

    SERIOUSLY. NERF HER HACKING SPEED. IT’S BROKEN AS FUCK.

  9. That feel when you get put in a team with a couple of guys with a diamond/hold border still in gold.

  10. Seriously, though, the autobalancer is completely broken. I have 2000 hours on this game, and it keeps stacking my team, the other team, or both teams with people who are less than lvl 30. They are not smurfs.

  11. there’s no extra reward for promoting after level 100? Pretty lame. At least give me 3 chests or something.

  12. Just because you’re Pharah and I’m Mercy I’m not going to follow your dumbass in suicide missions. Sooo many wanna fly over the enemy team, get shot to shit, be inconsiderate of where their Mercy is then scream about heals.

  13. SnooOranges9729

    Literally just keep getting players as my second support that instalock Lucio regardless of if he fits into the comp. Orisa, Sigma, Ashe, Hanzo and a Mercy? Hmmm….LUcIo IT iS.

    Seriously though, I’ve literally climbed from low gold to plat 4 times this week because I keep getting matched with Reddit Lucio players that don’t do anything other than die when they try to ‘flank’. I managed to bring back my friend who hasn’t played for a year and after two days he uninstalled again because he couldn’t deal with the Lucio players.

  14. Mercy’s res is such a shit mechanic. feels like a kick to the face when you pick off a tank or support, and she flys over, presses E from around a corner or behind a tank, and flys off all in 2 seconds

  15. Plane_Bodybuilder_24

    DONT BLAME HEALERS IF YOU ARE GOING TO PUSH WAY PAST POINT BY YOURSELF! DONT PLAY COMPETITIVE IF YOU ARE GOING TO QUIT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME!! ALSO TO ALL THE PLAYERS WHO GIVE UP EARLY AND THROW COMP GAMES I HOPE THERE IS GLASS IN YOUR DINNER. I feel better now. I’m gonna go play Overwatch now.

  16. Bitter-Imagination33

    WHY THE FUCK DO I ALWAYS WIN A CLOSE GAME IN COMP AND THEN GET ABSOLUTELY DESTROYED THE NEXT GAME

  17. Finnthehero1224

    DAMN MCREE PLAYERS ARE SO GOOD! HOW DO YOU DO IT! WHATS YOUR SECRET! ITS SO HARD FLASHING THEN FAN THE HAMMER THEN ROLLING TO FAN THE HAMMER! SURELY FLASH MUST BE HARD TO HIT FOR IT TO DO THAT MUCH DAMAGE ALL SKILL

  18. UnanimousChaos

    I just started playing competitive again after a few years. I am placed in gold and oh my goodness I want to pull my hair out. If I’m a tank, our healers are terrible. If I’m a healer, our tanks are awful. I feel like you are never meant to grind out of gold.

    Edit: y’all can’t just let me rage without telling me that I suck? Sheesh!

  19. DelusionalOGFanQuote

    I have been playing quickplay for 4-5 games today. Every game there will be a playing flaming the entire team, regardless of winning or losing.

    I’m obviously shit cause I don’t even know what half of the heroes are, but I don’t know why people are so sweaty on quickplay.

  20. HOW THE FUCK IS THIS GAME 6 YEARS FUCKING OLD AND REIN’S CHARGE STILL HASNT’ BEEN FIXED? HOW THE FUCK IS COMPETITIVE STILL SO FUCKING BROKEN THAT PLACEMENT MATCHES ARE FUCKING USELESS? WHY IS THERE NOT A SEASONAL FUCKING RESET TO FUCKING RANKINGS? I HAD ONE BAD NIGHT AND FELL 300 POINTS AND NOW EVERY FUCKING GAME IS A STEAMROLL BECAUSE 3/4 DPS ARE TRASH AND ONE’S A FUCKING SMURF, AND I HAVE THE UNFORTUNATE LUCK OF BEING ON THE BAD END OF THAT TRADE MORE THAN NOT.

    ​

    I’M FUCKING SILVER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 6 YEARS. I WAS A FUCKING HIGH PLAT TANK FOR FUCKIGN YEARS AND NOW I’M STUCK IN THIS SHIT ELO WITH TRASH DPS WHO COULDN’T HIT THE BROADSIDE OF THE BARN, AND I JUST LOST ANOTHER 50 POINTS BECAUSE FUCKING COMCAST DECIDED TO UPDATE THE FIRMWARE ON MY MODEM WITHOUT MY PERMISSION, AND WITHOUT CONSULTING ME, CAUSING ME TO DISCONNECT FROM THE MATCH. I’M FUCKING 1879. FUCKING 1879 FUCKING RATING. IF YOU TOLD ME 3 YEARS AGO I’D BE 1879 IN FUCKING OVERWATCH ID HAVE FUCKING SHOT MYSELF AND UNINSTALLED THE GAME SO I DIDNT HAVE TO DRAG ANYONE ELSE DOWN WITH ME. I’M LITERALLY GOING TO PAY SOMEONE TO FUCKING BOOST ME OUT OF THIS SHIT TIER ELO BECAUSE BLIZZARD REFUSES TO IMPLEMENT SEASONAL RESETS LIKE LITERALLY EVERY OTHER GOOD GAME BECAUSE THEY’RE SO FUCKING STUPID THEY THINK THEIR WARPED IDEA OF ELO IS ACCURATE. HOLY FUCK I’M GOING TO FUCKING BREAK MY FUCKING MONITOR IM SO FUCKING PISSED AT THIS TRASH GAME.

  21. IS IT SO DIFFICULT TO CALL CASSIDY BY HIS NEW NAME AFTER 9 MONTHS? IS HABIT REALLY SO HARD TO BREAK? OR DO YOU FAIL TO UNDERSTAND THE HURTFUL LEGACY THE OLD NAME REPRESENTS, ESPECIALLY TO VICTIMS OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION? [AND THAT BLIZZARD EMPLOYEES FOUGHT FOR THE NAME CHANGE AGAINST MANAGEMENT?](https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/qeib62/why_it_matters/)

    IF A CHANGE IS ASKED IN YOUR BEHAVIOR, DO YOU NOT TRY TO COMPLY? IF NOT, THEN IS IT NOT HYPOCRITICAL TO EXPECT OTHERS TO CHANGE WHEN YOU ASK IT OF THEM (I.E. RACISTS, PRO-LIFERS, EGOTISTIC CEOS) WHEN YOU CAN’T EVEN CHANGE THIS ONE SMALL PART OF YOUR OWN BEHAVIOR?

    SO, PLEASE, TRY TO USE THE NEW NAME. IT’S VERY EASY TO CORRECT A WRITTEN INSTANCE OF THE OLD NAME, BUT IT DOES MEAN A LOT TO THE PEOPLE WHO PUSHED FOR THE CHANGE.

  22. DVA PLAYERS GETTING EVERY PLAY OF THE GAME EVEN WHEN ITS ONLY A DOUBLE AND YOU GET A TEAM KILL OR A QUAD

  23. Thebiggesttarget

    WHOEVER DECIDED THAT TORBS TURRET SHOULD BE INSTA LEVEL 2 UPON DEPLOYMENT SHOULD BE FUCKING CURB STOMPED TWICE BY A FAT POWERLIFTER, BECAUSE THEY RUINED A GAME POST-RELEASE AFTER COLLECTING THE MONEY

  24. I am sorry, but unless you are in Masters and above, Widowmaker is downright unplayable. And I mean even if you’re hitting 60% of your shots and 90% of the “easy” shots it doesn’t matter. Because 1 pick on a key target MEANS NOTHING in high plat/low diamond and picking off 3 targets also means nothing because the team rams into you anyways.

    And god knows what happens when you’re able to consistently team wipe the entire enemy team for 2 fights in a row. Winston, Ball/Dva, Genji, Doomfist, lucio +1. Now I can swap to something like a reaper, or ask for brawl to counter said dive. But it’s plat. It’s futile. People refuse to listen, people refuse to change things up because I’ve been picking 4 people all every single fight. So no! My zen ana is perfectly fine. My reluctance to heal my Widowmaker is perfectly fine. Because fights were won and I’ve done my part!

    I’m done ranting. This game just irks me sometimes because many games just feel unwinnable, or if I do my part it doesn’t feel like I’m ranking up because I’m doing my part. It just feels like I have to do my part then HOPE TO GOD that my f***ing teammates aren’t complete god damn idiots. Otherwise, -25 SR. Seems like every game is a coin flip, maybe because it’s dead and everyone is where they belong.

  25. IF I ASK FOR A 2ND HEALER, BECAUSE I CANT HANDLE 4 DPS AND 1 TANK AND YOU CANT WRAP YOUR HEAD AROUND THE IDEA, THAT THERE ARE MORE ROLES THAN DPS, DONT SPAM “I NEED HEALING”.

  26. MyRottingBrain

    I love taking a year long break from this game only to come back and see that literally every problem I had with it is exactly the same.

    STOP USING WIDOWMAKER YOU AREN’T GOOD

  27. Why is it so hard for people to pick Support in Archives?

    I really hope OW2’s Hero Missions comes with a Role Queue, I will gladly wait if it means we’ve got a support player!
