I’m mostly in for bad aim.
This is not meant to be negative or offensive, but in plat + a widow player will land shots on reaper.
= reaper is completely useless.
He can’t get into the fight.
Lower ranked widows don’t hit, and reaper can close the distance and wreck havoc.
= reaper op
= Widow useless and needs buffs.
Thats also imho why theres more bastion played in lower ranks, the ability to counter him are limited there.
Or just look at Torbjörn, once there was a graph how torbs turret performed in each rank.
Below gold, torbs turret was a big threat.
Through gold and platin his value sank drastically.
Above diamond, his turret is literally one of the worst abilities. As it’s shutdown immediately.
But this would’ve mean that we needed to buff his turret, since in gm it was useless and never used. This would’ve killed the lower ranks.
Btw i was 10 seasons below platin, but somehow as brig got released i climbed higher to high platin. I played tons of qp with friends who are higher ranked, comp was later pretty much a joke, as my skill level has increased dramatically.
(i was playing with diamond friends, which led to a team sr of high plat)
Guess what, 2.8k is where I’m again having trouble.
I can really recommend to play with better players, so you basically become a better player.
If bronze, play with high silver / low gold = should bring you to a mid/high silver niveau.
But I’m not sure if that works for everyone.
A lot of low ranked players don’t know what they do wrong.
I had a crazy high dpi on my mouse, went 1.4k
Now I’m used to a way lower dpi, 2.8k (after a hard time in gold)
Also i saw players shooting in salves (as tracer…)
Ppl standing still against sniper / flanker.
Sometimes questionable plays.
Or they play the hero completely wrong, example? Long range tracer…
