Apparently I'm an asshole because I want to play a normal game in qp

I always have these games in qp where everybody is messing around (which I am all for btw) just not doing anything. But is it too much to ask to just play a regular qp game where people aren't teaming or not doing their job? And then Im the asshole because I get annoyed at everyone always wanting to play like this, and I always get the 'it's qp' message. Im not saying qp should be all serious and whatnot but I just want to play the game not tbag and spam voicelines to each other for 10 minutes. Hell, on some occasions I feel like doing that but there are some people who just play it like that's the purpose of the game, to role play or whatever.

Overwatch doesn't switch to my 2nd monitor and plays at 30 fps

So I'm having a problem that occurred a couple of days ago where Overwatch 2 randomly switched from my 2nd big monitor to my laptop built in monitor. The stupid game doesn't let me switch it back over to my second bigger monitor (which I have set in display settings as my main monitor) unless its in window mode only. Every time I try to full-screen on my second monitor, it full-screens on my laptop monitor. Not only does it not let me play on my primary monitor, it also randomly limited my fps to 30, and even if i take the limiters off or set FPS to 600 it stays at 30. Ive checked my power supply and thats not the issue, Ive read the forums, reset my graphics settings in game and thats not the issue, Ive tried resetting my Nvidia 3D graphics settings and it isnt the issue. This randomly occured after I installed the latest GEFORCE drivers to my computer, so thats all I could think of. The thing is that I can play any other game like Valorant, CSGO, or rainbow 6 completely fine with no issues. Only when I boot up Overwatch is when I have grainy graphics, low FPS, slow response time, and I cant go fullscreen on my main monitor(my second one). Its really frustrating and noone Ive researched has had this problem. HELP

Quickplay matchmaking

Starting a new account because I got suspended for cursing :( the matchmaker for quickplay sucks, as someone from gold/plat/diamond who’s never really touched QP, since OW1.

Why does Ana rarely get POTG?

Ana can practically do everything at a high level. Yet I don’t ever see her getting POTG.

She can heal really well, even mitigate healing. She can do damage consistently and even deny ultimates, yet she never gets POTG. Anyone know why?

i absolutely adore the overgrown bastion skin but I've heard it's only obtainable if you've been playing since the beginning. is there a way to get it now?

This is How you Show the Competitive Progress Bar at the end of Every Game!

Let the entire potg play through and then press esc at the end result screen. This will show the progress bar after every match.

Aimbotting on Genji (very emotional)😔

Unfortunately someone caught me cheating and using aimbot whilst I was Genji. How can I get unbanned? Nah I’m joking I was destroying a dps zen and for some reason said I was cheating and said that I was sh*t for using cheats lol.

How is this a buff?

As a hanzo main, I dont understand how the increase of the dragons movement speed is a buff? If i were to buff it I would decrease the speed of the dragons? Ik they wanted it to more for “killing” but I could just walk forward 2 feet so the dragons are closer to them? Ik also know they don’t want it to really be a zoning tool, but come on, thats what its always gonna be. Thats just how aoe ults like this are. I don’t get it. The dragons deal less damage because they have less time in an area. This overall feels like a nerf that daddy hanzo didn’t deserve. Dragon-strike has never really been good, and this certainly isn’t helping it either. They need to do the opposite of what they did and slow them down, or make them slow then speed up with damage dependent on how fast the dragons are going. Someone please explain to me what they were thinking.

Why are people so scared of blade?

Is it just because the ultimate voiceline sounds intimidating? I see this alot with high noon. Both ults are very bad and rarely get value but whenever you pop them, every single defensive measure on the enemy team is activated. I’ll pop visor, sojourn ult, death blossom etc and the enemy will still hold onto their ults and stay wherever their standing but whenever i pop blade or high noon, moreso blade, transcendence is activated, beat is activated, tree is activated, i’ll get solo graved by zayra, why do people get so scared of dragon blade? Is the voiceline just that scary to hear? Do people get satisfaction out of negating genji’s ult? Are people scared of blade because it’s a melee ult where genji gets all up in your face? I need answers!

Suspended Account

probably because of profanity in chat.

I mean there's a profanity filter, chat filters, and you still get suspended for talking trash and saying a nuaghty word. 2 weeks is pretty oppressive too.

Kind of takes the fun out of it really if you can't talk $h!t.

How could I have won this?

In a quick play game, I was playing tank and started as Hog, and in the course of the game, the enemy team went Mauga, Cassidy, Bastion, Ana and Zenyatta. I changed to Orisa when all of that happened, because I she is one of my best tanks but it didn't help at all, ended up with like 9 deaths when the team average was 6. One of my supports ended up saying "trash tank" to me in the end of the match and I was wondering: was there a actual good pick for me to go against a whole bunch of tank buster characters? For more context, it was defense on Hollywood.

Why can't I buy a single gold weapon? I can't seem to unlock them because they are locked. I have enough legacy comp credits or whatever it is called.

What is going on with matchmaking?

Every team I face nowadays is Seal Team Six, just steamroll after steamroll after steamroll.

Matches are going so fast, I barely get a chance to even hit anyone.

Is this happening to anyone else? I know loss streaks are a thing but this is an almost 2 week loss streak at this rate.

edit; literally just had a Pharah with 1000+ hours drop almost 50 kills on us and wiped my team over and over. Why am I being matched with players like these? I have 38 hours in this game total.

How is this possible?

Specifically talking about my Doomfist record/winrate here. my Dva winrate is also high (81%) but every other tank is low (45-60%).

I feel like I cannot control the game on any standard tanks. Hasn’t really been an issue yet, but doom and dva are so easily counterable that I feel like I need to learn the rest at some point.

Any tips for a new tank player that can only play dives? Should I give Winston and wrecking ball a try?

Sombra nerf when?

She does damage, she does healing, her teleport can delete Illari ult, she's always invisible, she takes away abilities like what is blizzard thinking with this character? It's wild how overtuned she is these days. I don't remember her being this annoying in OW1.

Shop Skin Questions

I’m a relatively new player. I only picked OW up halfway into season 9, so I’ve been playing for about two months and don’t fully understand how shop skins work. I noticed that on a lot of skins in the hero gallery there’s no option to purchase and it says “Sometimes available in the shop” or something close. My question is this: Is this a random occurrence? Is it in a bundle that shows up in the weekly shop rotation at the top of the shop menu like the current Porsche skins, limiting availability to outside of current events? Will it show up in the “just for you” section at a random time? Can this be manipulated?

As a Zenyatta main, the second I found the Bathmaster skin I knew I had to have it at any cost. I’ve played him for hours and hours at this point and thought that playing him more would make it more likely to appear in the shop but I’m having no luck so far. I’ll get other skins of his in the shop on a near daily basis along with emotes and poses and intros, multiple daily. I check every day and try to limit the other heroes I play as for this reason. I want that skin so bad. Anyone familiar with the shop mechanics, please help. I’ll give you my first born son
