    Can anyone tell me why Overwatch is being so much bad and toxic?
    I'm level 457, I played overwatch since day one and everyday, untill 2 weeks ago...
    Players become more s*** and more toxic everyday, in competitive and in quickplay too...
    Every match are 3 dps and sniper, or hanzo+widow duo, no one want go heals and whole matches are all the same, boring and instant defeat/win (if enemy team sucks more)
    I noticed when I played Overwatch in levels 1-100 matcher were fun and now in high-levels matches it's just bad, and I really don't get it
    It's impossible to grow up in ranked, specially in gold-plat ranks... And you can't say "oh ok, I can try next season so I can do better placements" because you can not untill the game place you relying you previous rank...
    Now, my questions is: why everybody want go widow and hanzo? Why does people think that overwatch is like Cod and don't understand that is a team-based game? And mostly why is rank-placements based on previous rank so I can't rank-up even though I've improved? Can Jeff introduce something like "placement matches not based on previous rank so I can fucking really try to rank up?"

    Try playing mystery heroes, it can be frustrating when you end up with a random bad team, but it takes all the pressure of having to be the healer all the time, and forces people to try other characters.

    As for your other questions all I can say is some people enjoy trolling or the thrill of instant kills. Any game with competitive elements will have people like that, and unfortunately there's not much which can be done. I'd say Mystery Heroes is your best bet to get a fresh feel of the game. Additionally your level doesn't affect your matchmaking as I'm sure you'd know, so I mean if you win/lose a bunch of games you should hopefully end up with a different set of players?

    Sometimes you get bad teams but my guess is toxic people are actually getting better finally have reach gold. Why people play hanzo? People like to throw because they don't care or they are actually main him because he is broken (scatter arrows + 125 damage shots).

    As for Widowmaker, I can't really say anything myself because I main her. I do so as she has a high skill ceiling. It also feels amazing when you get three headshots in a row or land a grapple hook shot.

    Have you tried cooperating with people? I played a game at gold and we actually had 5 dps and I was the only support playing lucio. We wrecked the enemy 3-0 and they didn't touch the point. I got an achievement for that. It was so funny at the end.

    I blame blizzard's matchmaking, the worse in the business IMO. It always makes you lose 10-20 games in a row cause it forces you to team with noobs or trolls, and then when it finally matches you with decent teammates you're only allowed to win 5-10 game in a row IF you're lucky.

    It's not just Overwatch, every game has toxic players. Sometimes you don't bump into them, but sometimes you do. It's just as bad on CSGO or LoL, even MapleStory has toxic players.
    I was on my random OW account tryna carry a friend up to Gold, was around 1.2-1.5k SR and honestly, yeah 90% of matches will be cancer. I'm Plat on my main and I'm quite able to carry quite well, but it's honestly sad seeing players lvl 500+ and in Bronze / Silver and taking it lightly. I feel like Blizzard needs to have more requirements before playing Competitive instead of being lvl 25. And Throwers, I honestly feel like they need to be perma banned from the Season or even all future Seasons. I understand sometimes you're having a streak of bad matches and you just want to give up but isn't this also how majority of players feel? lol
