another thing. once youre ranked you cannot play with friends who are doing their placement matches too. try to start with ur friends once u begin placement matches


More don't solo at the start of a given season in any video game. I get that it's going to be time limited since it's PTR. But I wouldn't expect completely serious matches on PTR unless you group to make them. When the matching pool is full of unstabilized players you just end up playing against last season 80s when you have a team of 50s. If you're grouping with players that were your skill level it doesn't matter that much.

As a given it's easier to rise the later the season is either way;
    1: The ranks have stabilized.
    2: More mmr in the system.

3500 at the start is incredibly good. Wasting time on the PTR to get nothing for it though is a shame so I'm not bothering.

YEEEEEAAAAHHH nice Potatoes!

I just powered through solo queue placement as support last night to see how bad it was (still). It was probably the worst experience of my life, between trolls, griefers, and people who are just /really/ bad at fps. 2-2-6, high Silver (LMAO :!: ) Thank god it's only Test Region...

On the bright side, at least every healer is viable now.

That's a good chunk of top 500 players, Scrub.

I really don't think Genji will be going away, nor will any bit of this hyper-aggressive meta any time soon. Especially, if Hanzo can be played as a mobile OHK, and Mercy + Pharah is still too risky.

>be me
>plays solo games for months
>friends busy with their comp games in groups or playing with other guys
>keeps getting many loss games in comp, cause no one wants to hang out
>comes back to CSN, because no one plays with Mage anymore
tl;dr I'm just bored and I have no where else to play with others :evil:

Y'know what sucks. Having no one to play Overwatch with and doing solo queues for months. All cause they don't want Mage to come around and ruin their ranks, or he doesnt give a crap about comp.
Now I'm just a solo guy who loses a lot of comp games in Overwatch, because my friends just didn't want me.

Btw, long time no see anyone who remembers me, Mage.
