Well, at least in competitive, you don't have to finish the games.
If they stall out your cart before the first point, the second round ends as soon as they push the cart further than you did. Haven't been seeing much of it on PC, although effectively placed torbs and bastions still wreck uncoordindated teams.
My rankings are awful. I played my placement matches and got placed at 46. Worked that up to 48 in what felt like pretty easy games to me.
Then I had a couple of losing streaks in groups...honstly, the groups weren't good enough to make up for the fact that groups get matched with groups. The players weren't bad, but just lacked the coordination of a good group (e.g. a random player at the same level would have been equally good). Lost 8-10 ranks in the course of 2 sessions (was having fun in the group, so I didn't really mind...assumed it would be easy to climb back out in solo-queue).
Now I can't escape. I feel like I am stuck with total noobs. My only success has been good play in a 2-group, or playing in a 3-group where the third player is actually really good. Even then, progress is slow and a few losses will toss me down...hit 38 again last night.
Hard to grasp it...I think I am decent at the game, but I get these teammates who can't play the game. I'm back to losing because lucio jumps off the point during overtime (and the junkrat standing next to it refuses to step on it). Sure, Sometimes I get those idiots on the other team...but when the game is reduced to a flip of the coin on which team has more idiots, it isn't really fun. And it is hard to move up since many of my losses take away bigger chunks of rank than my wins grant (especially if someone rage-quits when they are losing...stats are still bugged so the winners get very low rank for beating quitters).
My Quick Match MMR is pretty good--I get consistently matched with solid players who teamplay and don't noob it up...so why is my competitive rank so screwed?
