I haven't been too concerned about them so far, got a few golds in my 61 levels.
Almost at 1000 gold again, so need to work out which person I want an ulti skin for.

Had some good games yesterday, and was great once we got 6 of us in a team together... well until Moose's ping went stupid while he was tanking...

Current favourite hero... D.Va...

Have finally figured out what I am doing... and managed to get gold medals for Elimination, Objective Eliminations and Damage done as her last night.
And that was in a winning team... which included a 15 player kill streak :D

yeah I think D.Va is probably my go to tank now as well, her ultimate is great, even if you don't kill anyone getting everyone to scatter when it pops is handy,

But I love pissing off D.Vas as Mei.

The custom reticles thing looks like it could be handy, especially good that it can be set for each character.

D.Va is a situational tank. She isn't anywhere near as tanky as Rein or Roadhog, and once her mech dies she's basically a liability haha. If the only tank on your team is a D.Va you're definitely going to suffer for it.

The only times I've seen D.VA used well in high level games is on D at the capture zone/last point. Her boost means she can get on the point fast like Tracer but also dishes out damage at range and can survive better. It's great for fleshing out overtimes, or just buying time in general. Lots of people are saying she needs a buff, which is shit - if she gets buffed she'll be way too powerful. She's just a very niche character, and Blizz have said they'll be reworking her in the future.

D.Va could also be good for anti overtime-cheese on KotH too actually. She's really durable to Tracer due to the mech having high armor, so if there's a bunch of Tracers jumping on the point forcing OT a D.Va or two would go a long way.

I imagine any changes to D.Va will revolve around the effective range of her primary weapon.

I think it will be a lot more than one simple thing - from what I gather they're going to completely rework her at some point.

Oh yeah, I'm looking forward to this, its either going to be really fun or have the most toxic people in the community playing in it.

Well I didn't rank up to 25 before comp came out, so now I'm stuck playing games with the fucking bottom of the barrel :(

Took over an hour to get from rank 20 to 21, maybe even two hours. Lots of waiting to find matches between games. I was in 3 of the worst teams I've ever seen in one sitting. All my mates are in comp now grinding for golden guns so it's even slower in solo queue. Hopefully the novelty wears off and some more people play quick games again.

Seriously if you see me online and you're doing quick play PLEASE invite me :p

And yeah of course it's a bit toxic. The perk is that people will hopefully take it more seriously and not fuck around with 3 junkrats on attack, horrible defensive lineups, offensive Bastions that do nothing on KOTH maps, etc... I'll take some toxicity for better teams any day haha. The answer is still what I've always said for OW, which is to just play in groups.

Didn't know there'd be a minimum level for it, still only 21-22 I think. No rush, so long as it doesn't make the wait times too long outside of ranked matches... :(

I'm happy to jump on with anyone to get them through to 25...

Played 4 ranked matches last night, so almost halfway through my "accreditation" stage. See how bad my rank can be coming out the other end I guess...
The 3 guys I was playing with last night came out at 52 and 53... so I'm hoping for somewhere close to that.

5 healers and a Reinhardt

I like that these guys have moved on from lets all pick the same character videos to just trying other crazy combos.

last night I had an awesome run of games, had one of the best games as Pharah ever and finished up 46 experience points short of hitting level 25. Just needed to finish a game, win or lose it didn't matter, so I jumped into the next game, Defence on Kings Row, figured I may as well try something new since I really didn't care if we lost in the first 30 seconds so I picked Hanzo and we proceeded to destroy the attacking team so badly they didn't get anywhere near the first objective and it was over quickly.

Jumped into my first placement match and it was a disaster, Attacking on Hollywood, 30 seconds into the round and our Lucio says he has a bad ping and leaves, then another guys is like yeah brb and he goes as well, suddenly its 4 vs 6 and we got our shit wrecked, everyone else had decided we were going to call it and leave the game once the 1 min countdown was over, but they came back with literally 1 second to go, the lucio was still lagging something awful and we just couldn't break through their defence.

Second placement game went way better, started off as defence on Dorado, I went Mercy and just followed Roadhog and Reinhardt all match with Pharah dropping in for healing and damaging boosting, it was a hard slog but they managed to get the payload to the first 2 points but we held them back after that, then on our turn to attack we pretty much kept the same characters and managed to push all the way to the end with a couple minutes to spare, I got a couple of good resurrections in that helped us keep the pressure on.

I've noticed a lot more people actually communicating and using their ults to compliment each other in competitive. although the communication isn't always the best, first game and while we were waiting for the doors to open and my team had the following conversation

Player 1: Torb building a turret
Player 2: Which side?
Player 1: Enemies side
Player 3: No he means which side of the map
Player 1: Outside

bad couple of placement matches, first one had a Mercy who told us at the start of the game we have the best healer in the game, then he spent most of the game Damage boosting our Reinhardt, then abused us when we lost. Second game was awesome and came down to sudden death which we lost, I don't like the coin flip thing.

But I did get my first PotM

I got rank 49, not too unhappy given I went 5-5 (with 3 being due to leavers).

I am slowly attempting to make my way back up the ranks... started at 46 and dropped to 40. Back to 42 now I think (Maybe 41... )
Will be on tonight for a few games, if you want to jump in I am more than happy to group up.

I'm also usually on TS, so hit me up for the details if you want to join there too.
