    Nice, being yelled at to change a hero for 2 months is better than 3 months I guess…

  2. SulaTosi says:

    Hate the control map change because there is bi mode thats as long as control and I love Comebacks and you can‘t do that any more and even if the enemy team does the comeback I think it‘s interesting but then theres NO long game in Overwatch so competitive is now quick play

    I don’t know if you will see this but I thought it was a good idea to add a “panic” or “help” button similar to the “need healing” button because when you’re a healer sometimes you’re being attacked from the back and your team has no way to know and even if you are in voice chat and scream for your life people don’t know where you are or take long to get what’s going and it’s too late. As a healer main this would make my life complete lol. thanks! I hope you guys see this(:

    your matchmaking is a joke for as long as irrelevant ingame stats are used for the rating calculation.

    How about fixing how leavers work? I don’t want to lose SR because someone on my team either raged because they keep getting killed or their internet goes down, I hardly think it’s fair.
