Over the last few weeks I have been in a serious downward spiral in the world of online gaming. The games I use to love have been making me want to whip my controller across the room and it has been getting worse daily. Of course competition sometimes gets the best of us but usually I will go into a small slump and then pop back out for a period of time where I am on top of my game. However like I stated before that is not how the last few weeks have been. In every single competitive game I play, Rocket League, Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm, I can not for the life of me gain any ground. I feel like I have been forever hexed and a part of me wants to just say forget it and give up these types of games completely.
Holy crap ladies and gentleman I can not believe what happened yesterday to my teammate and I while playing Overwatch. If you remember, I posted an article about Overwatch asking the question “Is It Worth The Pain?” which went into detail about all the issues that are making me want to step away from Overwatch because people are ruining the game and in turn wasting my time (click on the link if you want to read more about it). So yesterday my teammate sends me a message that said “Want to have another shot at Overwatch?”, so I accepted the challenge and we had a rough start….
Like a shotgun to the face, Overwatch has been painful to keep playing for me. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Overwatch BUT there are only so many times you can touch a hot stove before you learn not to touch it again. Simply put, the people playing Overwatch are ruining the game for so many including myself.
Let me just jump right out and tell you this is NOT a rant about the game itself, I LOVE the game, it is awesome! Now let me get into what this rant is really about. So over the last few days, my friends and I have been playing a lot of Overwatch (naturally) and what I have noticed is that more and more players are starting to worry more about their own K/D then they are about the objective. For those of you who don’t know, Overwatch is a OBJECTIVE TEAM GAME. There is no room for K/D obsessed players because you will literally cause your team to lose.
