I got kind of fed up with completely idiotic teams in Quick Play so I got back into competitive play despite some really salty people there. To my surprise it seems to have gotten a bit better. However, I kind of fucked up my placement matches. Maybe it was rust, maybe I am just not as good as I once was/once thought I was at FPSes but I got put into gold, and low gold at that
Anyway, working my way up and already made more than 150 SR back or so. Still got like 300 SR to go before hitting my career high though. Will try to make Platinum soon. I guess the good thing starting so low is that almost every win sets a new season high Playing mostly tanks this season, particularly trying to improve Winston. Not playing Orisa because I just don't really understand the character. Also picked up Soldier as my main DPS hero and playing Zenyatta if the team needs a healer.
Unfortunately there are still some run-ins with really awful teams, e.g. today on Route 66 the damage guys couldn't hit the broadside of a barn and then the rest of the team started flaming each other. I tried to tell them to stop but it was of course for naught. Oh well. However there are also nice surprise like a hold on Hanamura today where everybody was voice communicating and nobody made any bad remarks though at least one was a 14-year old kid which are usually flame magnets.
