How to win in SoloQ ranked matches
The main and most common reason for losing a single player in a rating game is the inability to adapt to the team. All completely choose their favorite characters, which they think everything is on the shoulder. But this is the wrong tactic. Fundamentally. In cases where one suddenly inconsistently takes the Bastion, and you do not even have Reinhardt, the chance to fly, like plywood over Paris, increases multiply.
And instead of adjusting to the command, for example, you grab Roadhog or Winston, thereby condemning everyone to defeat. In endless squabbles, while some swear at the wrong pick, the enemy team notices the slack and quickly uses it. The result is sad: “rolled out like babies.” However, as always.
Learn to assist the team, even if you need to take not the most productive and useful hero. I remember once we took Winston for only one purpose: to protect the heals from Genji. Everything. The enemy tried for a long time to get heals, and then to sentence the whole group, but he did not succeed. Why? Because Winston defended Mercy the whole fight, setting up shields and sticking to the running up DDs. If the front rows “fell”, then Mercy raised all. But if she had fallen, the party would have been crushed. This is a simple and illustrative example of adequate work in a role-coordinated party.
JUST A THEORY! One method to show the system how bad you are is to lose it on purpose with a terrible stat. To do this, of course, you need to visit a quick game and there seem to be the worst player in the team. After such matches, the system is likely to take into account your dubious achievements in the selection of opponents in the next matches. I’m not sure that it will work in the rating, but the experiments have shown quite funny results. Or maybe it is the “placebo effect” – who knows!
What have we learned?
In almost all cases, your main ally is experience and practice. Each shot applied skill and discarded ult – everything gradually moves you to the reflex response to various game situations. Simply put, when you start “hack on the machine”, without processing information through unnecessary parts of the brain, your skills will respond with growth. Do not forget about the opportunity of overwatch placement boost, not the best, but an acceptable decision.
Of course, your personal skill is a plus. But the main thing in Overwatch is a team game. Only by joint actions, you will be able to confidently win and move forward on the expected steps of the rating game, whoever is in front of you.
I hope these tips will help you choose the right point of support and learn how to make other players worthy of competition. See you on the battlefield!
