Well that was awkward. Went in LFG and joined a group thinking it was QP but it was actually ranked. And I had my first comp game that way, playing a hero I’m still learning (Zarya), and with no chance to switch to DPS cause I was locked into tank.
People were mostly Gold, with only one Plat, one Silver, and me, the unranked idiot. LOL
But, although we lost, it was a very close game and I actually did a lot better than I expected. I managed to keep high energy the whole game, I fragged enough to get silver elim, my gravs were pretty on point, I was on fire most of the time and comms were decent, I actually managed to keep track of enemy ults and call out weak targets.
Watching pros play on YouTube actually helps, who would have thunk.
