Blizzard has tried to fix it over several seasons, but now we're losing hope.
i don't play overwatch much usually just when they release a new character and only played ranked in the 1st season but no matter the game when you add ranked modes people start to care about their rank and how good they are, then people start to be dicks to people "letting the team down" its kind of unavoidable with ranked gaming or ranked anything really.
Competetive on Overwatch is disgustingly toxic. It's impossible to have fun when at least 1 person is screaming and raging because you picked a certain character when it's really them who are doing poorly and holding the team down. I haven't played since August after they released Doomfist then immediately nerfed him to being basically unplayable. Even the newest character didn't really pull me back.
Get a life.
New to the internet?
I wonder if this article uses the word "problematic".
It's an online game and you expect people to not be toxic? It's part of gaming culture to have toxic players always has and always will be. The adult world ain't sun shine and roses and people aren't perfect or obligated to be nice it may sound tough but deal with it or you know don't play the game. "But but but it's my right to play a game in my safe bubble" well guess what Blizzard can't fix the problem, Sony and Microsoft haven't fixed the problem, and the community hasn't joined arms to fix the problem actually I'm sure majority of the community have gotten over it. So if your sick of dealing with toxic players then get off your ass and go find people who ain't toxic and play matches with them there are ways to find them there are smaller community's and clubs who are the safe space your looking for to play and stop being an annoying lazy bastard and put some effort into solving your own problems like the adults your supposed to be.
