Lol, I know, right? I haven't even been playing, really. I was below diamond again by a bit (around 2967 or so) and my friend pestered me for a carry so we ran three rounds at ~2800ish and I won all three, but now I have to play more just to keep my 3046 or more...

I'm more interested in Summer Games 2.0, though, because that in tandem with the new dupe system will be quite telling, depending on how they introduce the new content and bring back the old content. If it's really frustrating still I don't think I'll ever get back to the marathon playing I used to have, since it's taxing on me to play endlessly like that, and competitive has so many trolls and throwers it's genuinely frustrating sometimes. I've resorted to mostly playing in duos because it ensures I at least have one competent tank/support player (I used to main supp and then get forced into tank a lot of the time, but now I just lock DPS since my gamesense is way better than most even if my mechanics leave something to be desired in some games).

Also, REAPER OH MY GOD IT'S SO MUCH FUN TO PLAY HIM AGAIN. I had a game last night where I hard carried and just smashed through people, it was ludicrous! Reaps~

S'all good, we're already friends. Gold is still kind of a mess compared with upper ranks, but you'll find that the hardest to get out of, rank-wise, is Platinum. Everyone thinks they can hard carry with their specific mechanical skill, or think their positioning is above average... but almost nobody has both. Three seasons I was stuck in plat trying desperately to move up, and while it took time, I am slowly still improving. Unfortunately, Diamond is still kind of hell as well, because games swing wildly to one side or the other.

As far as your skill set, the current meta is very dive-heavy, so Lucio and Soldier are ideal (the latter for "poke-dive" which is basically just a standard dive comp, but with Soldier in lieu of Genji, usually). Reinhardt, Symmetra, and Junkrat are unfortunately next to useless in this meta. This may not apply to you, however, given that even in Grandmaster/Top 500 you don't see pro meta 100% of the time. A good one to consider picking up though? D.Va. She has a fairly low skill floor, but a high skill cap, and what it boils down to is that as long as your team has a dedicated 2/2/2 style comp, your job ends up being eating everything you can and peeling for DPS. Unlike Reinhardt, you can actually chase down your own DPS and pocket them, essentially, and unlike Winston or Zarya, you can survive up close even if the enemy team has a Reaper: you just have to be mindful of how much Defense Matrix you have left + where the health packs are if your healers aren't nearby.

As for Soldier and Lucio: I don't know how you play specifically, and I'm not a great Lucio (after ~30ish hours of him, I cannot stand him), but Soldier is one of my main DPS and my upcoming 4th gold gun. Biggest recommendation: fight for the high ground always. If you get the high ground, it's so much easier to spray down at people with impunity. The other thing is that if you know you're going to encounter an enemy in a 1v1 scenario who has limited burst damage potential (another Soldier, Lucio, etc.), use your Biotic Field when you're at around half health instead of right away to buffer damage. Last tip, though you may already be doing this: ding people with your primary fire, in the head if possible, and THEN Helix Rocket them. Helix does an absurd 120 damage on direct hit, so if you ding someone in the head twice and get a body shot, you get a free kill with that Helix. If it's Tracer, only one headshot plus rockets!

Congrats! Gold is where things start getting better, because having played on a friend's account in silver, it's pretty horrendibad with nobody grouping, leavers, etc. Who are your main played characters? I might be able to give you some tips for climbing and getting you some more wins.

Honestly, I'm just really hoping since my job has some potential issues with it now that I'll be able to get everything without buying boxes. I have around 37k credits built up, so I'm pretty much good to go as long as they don't add a metric crapload of new content. There's only a handful of stuff I'm missing from the previous Summer Games, and I missed nothing but a few player icons from every other event.

Gotta git gud! I hit diamond again this season but some of the players I've been queuing with are absolute trash who shouldn't be in plat, like Pharahs playing into Anubis defense with Torb/Bastion/Symm/Mercy/Rein/D.Va and expecting to do anything at all. The skill level in comp is absolutely all over the place, it's so goofy.

Anywhoo, Summerfist (tm) is kind of an interesting thing, we'll see how it goes. The datamine shows not many new items being added, plus this new system for reduced dupes in loot boxes should make it far easier to attain new items. It's more or less great for veteran players like me who have too many hours / dollars in this game.

So this 2XP event, right, I had the weekend off and only worked till 1 on Friday so I figured I'd be able to grind out a lot, and I have - almost 30 levels total. Problem? I haven't gotten literally ANY unique anniversary content in that. I have, no joke, bought/earned literally 183 loot boxes, and I'm still missing 3 legendary skins, 7 dances, and a handful of other things. If I had gotten the one missing player icon (since for some reason we can't buy those) I'd be happy enough, but no, still no Pachiversary.

This event is so frustrating.

The tracker shows the buy cost (if you're OCD like me and track trying to collect everything). The last few events have been ranging between 30k and 37k to buy it all outright. This event was 56k, which is ludicrous, and it's mostly because of the dance emotes, which really shouldn't be anniversary content.

That said, I'm now 71 boxes in, still no new legendaries. I am expecting one to drop soon by pure RNG, given they have an approximately 10% chance and I haven't gotten one in a while. If I get dupes or something I'll be pretty mad, I need around ~35k more in items and have 41k built up, I don't want to blow it all on this event. You know?
