Yeah in lower levels nobody jumps. Once you get higher level they do. Symmetra should jump while tethered to the enemy at all times to avoid death, baby D.Va should, basically anybody running through Widowmaker's line of sight should (while serpentining).

Seems Amazon just launched a gaming service "Retro Zone".

Hey Neo what's your thoughts on the rumor that you may be banned if you only play one main?

You should definitely be banned if you refuse to play with your team just because your favorite character isn't available.

While I can appreciate me some novelty accounts, I don't think it has a place in the higher ranks. I've been following this shitstorm, and that guy is a tool.

There are two sides to this particular coin though.

1 - Playing a game the way you find enjoyable. This may mean that you have a particular character (or class of characters) that you enjoy and a particular character (or class of characters) that you hate playing as.
2 - It is a team game. Play to help your team and try to win.

Now, I personally am one that thinks people should be able to play as they want. But, I can also say that that play style doesn't have a place in a competitive (ranked) match. I understand that, and as such I likely won't be playing in competitive (or if I do I will work with the team). As it stands I normally try to work with the team anyway, but that is beside the point.

If you can't stand being tank and there is only tank available for the team comp, then you are screwed. You either play a character that you don't enjoy/ know how to play, lose the game, get ragged on, and don't enjoy your experience; or you play a character you do enjoy, possibly lose the game, but get reported and/ or banned as a result. There is no way to win in that situation.

I get that people think you should be proficient with all of the characters, but there are some characters I just really don't want to play as (like Genji).

The bigger problem, in my view, is that Blizzard's definitions of various reporting categories seem to have changed and they haven't updated their website to reflect that. As such people are able to call them on it, and I feel that that is rightfully so. If Blizzard updates their definitions for what is a bannable offense then they need to also spell it out for the community so people know - getting banned for something that you don't understand, and isn't "against the rules" based off the documentation available sucks.

Well the thing with this guy is that he has several accounts, and the one that got banned was all Torb, 0 mins anybody else. Fine for lower levels, but I think he was GM or something. And Beta, how do you know? I never see you on! lmao. Like I literally have never seen you online except the one time.

Yeah, I want to play more, but I have to swap off Linux to do that... Though I haven't been playing much of anything the last few weeks - instead I have been programming in my spare time.

more reason for me to never be interested in playing it...

if ((any given character is so lopsided that there are people out there who only play it) && (in so doing they're determined to be enough of a problem to the game community that they deserve to be banned)){

The game is totally unbalanced and can only offer a competitive atmosphere on par with paper rock scissors or tic tac toe

}

I prefer games where I'm evenly matched with my opponents in terms of raw capability, not where I have a 33% chance for even, and 66% for imbalanced.

oh, I just noticed it's Blizzard. Never realized that before. Makes total sense, and now I find it laughable.

Yeah, as part of Blizzcon this year they made Wings of Liberty free for all - primarily to get people in to multiplayer and competitive, I think.
