    Last pick last match... Ugh...

    So we have four picks: a Jenos, Ash, Inara, Lian... Last pick could have just picked a second support, and we'd have had really good sustain and have been able to easily beat out a Barik/Term front. What does last pick do instead...? Pick Talus...

    Okay, that could work right? Well, end game results screen and I see a 7/18/2 KDA, 23k less damage than me (Inara), and this is with Ash giving Talus PLENTY of space to go in on their support or DPS... But nope, he just dies and does no damage...

    Can't we just not throw so much... I'm in f***ing Diamond for f***'s sake and these morons are wasting my time and screwing my ELO with their throwing...

    And the game before that I was against a team that managed to lose with a smurfing nessa with almost perfect aim... Just how... It was pretty much like a slaughterfest for two rounds, and then I flanked the nessa and it was an easy win...

    It's almost as if it only matters whether it's my team or their team that's trash and my individual performance factors almost none. I mean what else explains a solo Barik 4-0ing in Ranked against Plats and Diamonds... (Doesn't help I'm a legit Barik god)...

    Ugh if you don't know how to play off-tank don't play ranked. And don't blame the point for your idiocy.

    Also learning I'm legit trash at comms. Like VGS just works better for me.

    Also is just me or is push-to-talk bugged as f***...? Like I don't even have to press the bind for anything to go through. Like it will just transmit literally every sound I make.


  • PC

    Some days it's better to just not Q... Yesterday I got an incredible number of throwers, afks and trolls. One even said they are paid to troll. Probably joking but you never know these days.

    I think I'm going to just insta lock my worst possible choices and let them all deal with it. It is a throw away account so WTF. Besides, It's not like the report system does a damn thing. I've still yet to receive one single confirmation for over a year that any action has ever been taken. Even the latest racist report never did anything.

    I will likely start posting videos for Paladins sometime next week after my mic comes in. 🙂

    Starting to realize there's a reason why I said "will likely" instead of just "will." If push-to-talk wasn't absurdly buggy and sometimes straight-up doesn't work properly, I'd probably be there now. But nope.

    Evil Mojo, please fix it or if I get in the AoC next year (unlikely is an understatement), I will tell you to.

    One thing I hate about Corvus:

    If your entire team is throwing, he's legitimately useless. Like the reason why Corv is so good completely goes out the window. And apparently them throwing will be on you even if you're playing one of the most team-dependent characters in the entire game.

    If there's even one good player on your team, you can still keep the mark on them and they'll still have 25% free lifesteal and 12% free movement speed. But if not...



  • @Dusklicious It's why I hate the design of Corvus, and don't understand why people like him so much. He's literally everything wrong with how to balance a support. He's extremely dependent on his team and can't do for himself. He literally takes no skill to use, just mark 2 targets and apply that heal and life steal and speed buff through walls at any distance, so long as you have line of sight on another teammate. He has the worst type of healing in the game, which is the pocket healing. And he's the patron saint of this shitty "pocket the dps" meta.



  • My match quality is getting worse and worse. It's now asking me to carry bots against literal 5 stacks now. Like people with no gamesense at all on my team.

    "Tyra's fire kept killing us on point." Yes, because you dumbasses rush point! And standing right in the fire. While expecting our Seris to heal 3 people getting burnt to a crisp. I tried to tell them to flank right as a group so we can get the Vivian who isolated herself to the side and then we could go for Tyra, and the rest of the team would fall. But having a brain and basic gamesense is overrated, much better to just rush point and feed 3-16 or 6-14.

    Next game wasn't all bots, but it was basically a 2.5 vs 5. Yeah, I couldn't do much that game because I was Evie against a Lian and Terminus with a fucking Torvald pocket and they had 2 supports pocketing them. Which is literally the most pussy comp I've ever seen ran. That right there really solidifies why I hate this fucking meta. This meta is about getting pocketed with little to no fucking counterplay. The only counter to that composition is literally a double or triple pocketed Strix/Kinessa/Cassie/Viktor. They're the only ones with enough consistent damage after wrecker to break those shields and they have enough burst and range to compete with Lian. To add insult to injury, our Grover wasn't buying any items at all, and his account level was 31. So match-making expected 3 people to carry a Grover that didn't buy items and a very new Fernando player, against a grandmaster 5-stack.


  • PC

    I swear if I have to say that Inara and Term are the only viable solo tanks one more time in ranked lobbies... Ugh.

    STOP FORCING ME TO BARIK SOLO TANK! IT GETS FRUSTRATING TO LOSE BECAUSE PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW TO DRAFT LIKE ANYTHING BUT A BRONZE PLAYER! Yes, that is me yelling into the abyss of morons with a collective IQ of 40.


  • PC

    So apparently I was against my old duo partner in a ranked game and he was just $#!+ talking me the entire time after the match ended.

    Yeah really because not being able to win as a healer with useless DPSes means you're bad right. Especially after all those times I essentially carried the entire game for this f*** playing a tank.

    Yet another game I have to report my ENTIRE TEAM for inting:

    Looks like a clear case of inting to mee..jpg

    Looks like a clear case of inting to me..jpg

    Also I will note that Evie was the last pick, Ying was mastery 170+, Bomb King was almost mastery 150, and this Skye pretty much just killed herself the entire game.

    Also I got top damage by 25k in a 7 minute match... OVER THE YING... Just what the f***...

    @Snugglebit Not meta but it definitely can work. I've seen Jenos/burst healer (Grover, Io, Furia preferably) with a solo Inara and two damages work as high as Diamond/Masters.


  • PC

    Can't we learn that just because Inara is top 3 frontline in ranked Siege doesn't mean she's not trash tier in TDM?

    Like playing Inara in TDM 9 times out of 10 is essentially throwing. Then there's the 10th with that one Inara player that can make her actually do damage instead of just soaking it and dying on loop.

    Also how do people LOSE games when they're being carried by a pocketed PPL player...?

    Also how do you feed a 5 supp comp playing Willo? You legit press one key and you counter their entire comp. It's like the only situation where Willo isn't only at the best mediocre but actually really strong. Also if the only one able to do anything on a comp is a F***ing TORVALD there's a problem. And that has happened THREE GAMES IN A ROW. And I was the Torvald in all of them. Like the last of them literally EVERYONE except me and one dps were legit inting. A TDM match my team lost by 30 kills and I had only two deaths...

    Useless.. I haven't reported anyone in like two weeks.

    Well, since the mic registers my key presses as being so loud they're to the point of being obnoxious, I'm going to have to go back at some point and re-do the voicing... And since I'm lazy that might mean it'll be a day or two.


    Making a sniper focus a sniper on the other team against two flanks is usually a bad idea.

    I think I heard someone say that it depends on the amount of reports in a certain time period. I know that I reported someone for throwing, and it was a severe case of throwing. Literally like a day later, I got that same message.



  • I honestly thought grand masters had a brain, yesterday proves that they don't. So I was duo with a diamond 2 person, and it put us in grand master lobbies. Now it wasn't bad for the most part. However, the last game before I got off really exposes the wacked out logic of supposed grand masters.

    So the map is Bazaar. Enemy team has Strix and Viktor. Uh... It wouldn't be so bad, except they expected me to last pick Androxus against that. Umm.... I'm literally diamond 5. I'm a last pick. And y'all expect me to Androxus against a grand master Strix and Viktor on Bazaar??? I'll admit that I don't have as much game sense as a lot of grand masters. I cap out at diamond for a reason. Yet even I know that playing Androxus against that on Bazaar is a death wish. They blamed me for not picking Androxus. I honestly should have just locked in a fun champion I felt like playing at that moment. If I had picked Androxus, I would have been blamed for being shit and feeding. When I didn't, I get blamed for not picking Androxus. That is called a 'no win' situation.

    At my elo, it's considered a throw pick to last pick a flank that the enemy comp/dps hard counters. At grand master elo, they want last picks to flank against their counters. How did these dumb fucks reach grand master???

    I've even seen pro players throw games before and play like they have 2 collective brain cells. Not really news to me.

    Heck I almost lost a game because I was playing OT with a GM flank insisting I follow them for the entire game. We only won because I disobeyed that for five seconds to contest. But of course at the cost of dying like 20 times just so this one flanker could farm kills.

    Yeah, but they at least still wanted you on tank. They expected a Diamond 5 player to flank a master Viktor and Strix. There is the "Io please follow and pocket me" stupidity of grand masters, and then there's the "So I know you're a last pick low diamond player, but we really need you to run Androxus against a double backline that melts you in less than 1 second." Like... The only possible way Androxus survives on Bazaar against a Viktor and Strix duo who are next to each other with a Goddess Blessing Io pocketing them is with a Thanks Grandpa Torvald, Luminary Jenos, and a Corvus. It's just too much damage otherwise. And I'd still have to be a good Androxus, and I'll be the first to admit that I'm fucking ass with him. Only other option was to probably be a Buck. In the grand scheme of things, I probably should have chosen that option. Even then, I never played Buck against grand masters, so I probably would have fed that game as well.

    Maybe I need to climb to higher ranks to practice dps there. It sounds ass backwards, but it's the truth. Especially since whenever any other last pick is a flank, grand masters complain. Everyday on Twitter and Discord they complain about last pick low elo players. Yet when I'm on a team with them "can you please play Androxus?" Like wtf is up with masters expecting me to play Androxus as a last pick.

    Also had an Andro (actual pro playerr that plays on the PPL) tell us to ignore point completely. Result was very predictable... I get flanking from a side and then diving point (something I do all the time playing tank), but...

    Also if anybody tells me to play Io one more time... Just let me play my Grover in peace. I mean my Io is somehow actually really bad, and my Grover is at least decent enough to play in ranked. And it's not like an actual throw pick or anything... Grover's pretty decent in his current state, you just have to play around him and f***ing group...

    Also had a GM streamer that threw a game by constantly letting me die playing Inara trying to contest half their team while getting one flank. Like what the f***. And I WAS THE ISSUE THERE? WHAT?
