Top 5 Terrible Players in Overwatch

Since its announcement, Overwatch had always been marketed as a game in which teamwork and communication were both keys to achieving victory. Many of the online YouTubers I’ve seen reach Grandmaster rank or even rank in the top 500 have been those who play in six-man teams who all communicate with one another to coordinate comps, flanks, pushes, and ult combos to get the payload delivered, to take an objective, or to hold a point, and their attitudes while playing has been nothing but positive vibes all over.

However, there’s always going to be those who pay no mind to what is needed to achieve victory but rather prioritize their own fulfillment of self-gratification. That, or they’re just being dicks.

As done to death as this topic may be, here is my list of the top five worst players in Overwatch (in no particular order).

Number 1: People with mics who don’t talk

If you want to win a match in Overwatch, you NEED to communicate with your team, which will obviously require you to share your game plan via a microphone, unless you’re like me who plays to unlock lootboxes—in which case, don’t bother wearing a mic.

That being said, don’t wear a mic if you’re not going to communicate. Nobody on your team wants to hear your mouth-breathing ass huffing and puffing like you’re really physically exhausted playing a video game. You know what won’t help the team take the point: Listening to you clearing your fucking throat every ten seconds.

Either communicate or don’t were a goddamn mic.

Number 2: Leavers

I’m sure in a universe of infinite possibilities, there are many good reasons why someone would leave early or before a match begins; maybe your brother’s car broke down and you gotta call him a tow truck; maybe you put some expired turkey in the sandwich you ate before starting a match and nature’s screaming your name; or more realistically, maybe your internet connection’s going bad and you get logged out of the server you’re playing on. All of these are pretty reasonable excuses for leaving a match, though your endorsement rank may suffer for it.

But you’re a fucking asshole if you leave for the following reasons:

A: Your team is losing.

No matter how bad your team is doing, you still will get experience at the end of the game. Leaving the game early because your too much of a sore loser to stay committed until the end will not only make sure that those five other players will avoid you as a teammate for the next seven days, but will also hurt you SR (if you’re playing in comp), you endorsement rank, and keep you further away from ranking up and getting that lootbox you’ve been working towards. It’s not worth it.

B: Someone took the hero you wanted to play.

You would think that throwing a tantrum because another kid took the toy you wanted to play with would have been something you’d have grown out of by the time you finished the 1st grade, but apparently, that wasn’t the case for these types of players.

The best thing any Overwatch player can do is diversify the different types of heroes you’re adept at using. In fact, it is to be expected of many players, what with multiple hero selections no longer being available in quickplay or comp. If you’re going to be a bitch and leave a game because someone else took the hero you one trick, that should signify to you that you need to switch up who you use. After all, your girlfriend isn’t gonna want to do it missionary style every time.

There’s a reason why that one-trick Torbjörn main was banned from Overwatch for life: his limited skills as a player limited the possibilities of his team winning a match. No matter how good you may be with a certain hero, that doesn’t mean you should play that hero exclusively.

Do yourself a favor and get good with other heroes.

C: Someone is shit talking you.

All I can say about this is grow a spine. There’s going to be toxic players out there who will shit-talk you for picking Ana as the healer instead of the Mercy they wanted. Don’t let fuckheads like that ruin a game you’d otherwise be killing at. Be the adult in this situation.

Number 3: People who are the last to pick a hero and it’s one the team doesn’t need

I don’t even keep track of how often this happens to me anymore. There is an unspoken rule in Overwatch: If you’re the last person to choose a hero, be the (second) healer or tank if there isn’t one already. But still, there will be those who still choose a DPS hero like the knobheads they are.

Don’t be the asshole that chooses Widowmaker or Hanzo when the team has no healers to keep your overextending ass alive. And for the love of God, don’t do this shit on comp. Don’t be responsible for your teammates’ lowered SR because of your terrible taste in hero compositions.

And don’t give us the “you change if we need a healer/tank” argument. If you’re last, go tank or healer.

Number 4: Hanzo mains

Fuck ’em. Just. Fuck ’em.

Number 5: Spawn campers

It’s time to stop! It’s time to stop, okay?! –Filthy Frank

Alright, real talk: Is it your life goal to be an overall piece of shit? Do you enjoy taking the joy of playing what over 40 million gamers worldwide would consider a fun game? Do you enjoy kicking a losing team while they’re already down? Is that the only way your brain can release the endorphins you clearly need? If so, I would say you are an honest-to-God sociopath—or just a Tracer main.

Guys, if you’re playing comp and all but one of the enemy team leaves, don’t kill the poor Lúcio that’s left whose just trying to have some fun in a shitty situation. Have a heart. Let him boop your team off a cliff so he can get the Lúcio pixel spray he probably doesn’t have.
