Thanks for the sensitivity advice, guys.

I've just had mine at the default settings from the get go. I'll be sure to tinker with them over the weekend.

When I started tinkering with the sensitivity, it always felt better to over do it for the first change. Then, back it down in small, small increments until you feel pretty comfortable.

Once you feel completely comfortable at the new setting, ratchet it back up and repeat.

I really dont get it. Finally crawl back to platinum SR after falling a bit and then I start getting teams that constantly disconnect, play bastion/torb/widow/hanzo, dont communicate, or speak a different language.

What the actual fuck. I thought the higher you get the better players youd be matched with. I was wrong.

I have, on multiple occasions, been slept with a sleep dart only to wake up and immediately fall back to sleep again for another 5 seconds. There is definitely something not right with it.

I mean if you're having success at low sensitivity settings why change? I tried like 5-6 games now with soldier, tracer and Pharah with higher sensitivity settings and I didn't see many benefits in my opinion.

It actually didn't take me much time to adjust to the new settings but I didn't play worse or better either.

I'm going to try to tinker more with the auto aim settings and stuff. I want to be able to land more critical head shots than I am and I think auto aim assist is the reason why.

I have most of my heroes at 40/30

I highly recommend, going into the training range, turning off aim assist (only for tweaking your sensitivity) and following this guide for this very specific tip (I time stamped the video, it doesn't matter that he's on the PC version, the technique still applies).

https://youtu.be/4kwyNgZL6so?t=12m50s

Once you get your settings the way you like it, turn aim assist back to 100. Go into a quickplay game, you will probably need to up your sensitivity 1-5 notches. Aim assist will slow down your crosshair when an enemy gets near it, so it's very important to up your sensitivity just a bit when you turn aim assist back on. You might suck for a few games and that's okay, making major sensitivity changes take a few games to adjust.

FYI: Don't worry about your sensitivity numbers being too low (or too high), everyone has a personal preference. I'm able to kill genji's and pharah's pretty reliably as Zarya with what is considered somewhat low sensitivity.

Just a suggestion from my personal preference. I did better after I upped mine.

There are SR regions where you will notice a drop in game quality, normally around the borders of a new ranking because you'll get tilted people who can't hit their goal rank, or the people that hit it and stopped caring about winning

Under the options for individual characters, you can map buttons to voiceline up, down, right, and left. L3 is free for practically every character, so as long as you remember which voiceline you want and where it is in your voiceline wheel, it's easy.

You have to learn battle sense as Mercy. You have to weigh your options on rezzes. Does it make sense to Rez to win the battle or is better to retreat and wipe? Or do you need to do a single Rez to keep momentum? Or Rez to save yourself. All things I think about playing her.

This is why kill feed is important.

Out of curiosity why not? Would seem helpful for like lets say you're on a ledge jump down to avoid a Genji or something and then with your beam still in tact fly back up with your back turned?

Idk I never play mercy but just by first look it seems like I would rather it be by beam

What anti said. What if the Genji doesn't come down or something? I have no LOS so I don't know what I'm flying back to... Or maybe I get caught on a wall. You can do this jump trick and fly back without having preferred on. I do it all the time.

That is one useful thing about "GA Prefers Beam Target", but that is not more useful than being able to beam someone that needs it while flying to someone else you want to fly to.

there is. think turn on GA to preferred beamed target. then you can do a no look GA. good to prep you up for your next GA target or look around when you GA to the beamed targeted

Well 9 now and I give up for the night. Fuck these players.

If you're​ not in a group and get a leaver you shouldn't lose SR.

Also had someone whine when I picked Widow and stated snipers were really needed during 2nd round start up (to make a point of his shit Hanzo round one), he agreed to switch but stood in spawn for like 4 minutes switching between heroes trying them out, before settling on Roadhog, using primary attack at range and missing every single hook. I didn't actually play Widow.

How do I get stuck with such shitlords.

I would say Sombra, Tracer, and Mercy are all pretty much tied. Any one of them should be the first in a game to get it.

Sombra's charge is more situational than the other two, though. Requiring the team to play around her hacked health packs, obviously.

I blocked out stats that might give some clues as to identity, some soldiers have a very small sample size (2-5 games) so keep that in mind!

That never really goes away, lol. Some pointers from my experience:

1) Her ult charges stupid fast. I've popped three in a heated teamfight before. So use it often. You miss 100% of the rezes you don't take.

2) Think about who you're resurrecting. Do they have ult? Are they carrying? Is it Rein? A single person rez can shift the momentum in battle.

3) You'll often get an ult dump after a rez, killing everyone you brought back and yourself. It's okay. You just traded a single ult that will charge immediately for however many they just murdered you with. Sometimes it's worth baiting them out, losing the battle to win the war.

4) Large rezes are awesome when they work. But remember there is a reason they're all dead, lol. Their positioning is still gonna suck when they revive.

There are tons of other tips out there too. But these main points vastly improved my rez game.

I've finally started to become comfortable adjusting to a lower sens. Right now I'm on 1800dpi, 6-8 in-game (depending on character), but that's still a long ways down from what I was using a few months ago. (Same DPI, almost twice the in-game sens)

actually no, its base on the achievement you've done in the span of time using him. so if you did great with him in one game and play him only once. you'll get superb stats.
if you play him great for only few games but you play him lots and lots, the stats will get watered down.
