I always see ppl on here talk about how theyíre GM masters etc. and Iím just a platinum cuck lord over here. Now like my forum name suggests I used to one trick Mercy (even while I was using Xim) so that could be why. Maybe if I played DPS from the start Iíd at least be in diamond. I have since branched out and I can play most tanks/supports except Ana monkey zarya ham. I also recently started playing Hanzo with decent results and soldier if they have pharah. I want to play McCree but Iím kinda garbage at him, I think I can probably learn pharah. I hope that eventually Iíll get better and climb.

Donít think you suck just because youíre a plat, first season I ever played I was 100 SR from gold, now Iím always 3800 or above. First season I ever played with Widow was season 8 and I got 3900 with her, basically one tricking.

It takes time to learn roles effectively and it may seem like you arenít improving but trust me, as long as youíre focusing on improving you are. Soldier is really good to start out with if you havenít played a lot of dps, McCree isnít in a great spot right now so donít worry if you do bad with him itís just he gets knocked around a lot in this meta.

Just focus on gamesense and positioning and your aim will come in time.

I have a friend whoís a Mercy main and uses a Xim, doesnít matter what input method you use as long as youíre able to do work with it.

Plat is hard bro. Thatís not sarcasm.   Lots of Smurfs, players with great aim but no awareness, etc. diamond feels easier at times. Master feels like GM or bronze lol.

Plat is always annoying though.  If you want someone to play with let me know.  I love mercys!

Thanks man, and I do see an awful lot of smurfs in my matches. A few weeks ago there was some guy with a name like TRACCRRRR bronze border no stars and they were owning as tracer of course. I was playing soldier and looking back I shouldíve swapped to brig or McCree to try and shut them down but like I said in the OP Iím kinda bad at him lol. Maybe even sombra so I could hack and then try to kill her. I actually rarely play Mercy nowadays, only if no one else picks her/Moira or at least Ana but they usually suck at Ana so Iíd end up having to Mercy anyway.

Thanks for the advice. I actually did start with Soldier when I started to get back into DPSing again (played DPS at first) but Iíve moved on to Hanzo since heís kinda the best DPS at the moment. The results Iíve gotten since switching to Hanzo arenít too bad, my weapon accuracy is pretty decent I think but my elims and damage could be better. I donít even really play Mercy that much anymore, I only play her now if no one else will go main healer.

you are dying too much, this is your problem, stay in backlines, actively use guardian angel, use every corner you can hide behind, dont use your pistol too often.

every mercy player in plat and diamond i saw is actually braindead, even those who has 1000+ level in a profile
keep in mind she is also a bit nerfed now, you get ult charge slower on 20% and you cannot overheal moira's and monkey's damage anymore

If worsts come to worst, you can try D. Va. I climbed from 3100 to low masters pretty much one tricking her in season 8, though this was before her missile nerf. Sheís still good though. However, she does next to no damage on armor. I myself donít even play dps though as I never really like being squishy in any game I played. I actually main Rein. I hate it when I have Hog and D.va as my tanks while the enemy has a zen, Rein, hanzo while Iím trying to play McCree with that kind of tank setup. I had the xim way before I got into Overwatch and just only played for comfort. Originally got it for smite as I played it on pc first but switched when they did a skin transfer to PS4 to play with some co workers. That said, plat is just an annoying rank, but youíll eventually climb out if you play more.

Well I actually donít even really play Mercy that much anymore. (I kno, you probably saw the forum name but I donít 1 trick her anymore) Only have 1 hour on her this season out of 11 hours played. And I actually die less frequently than the majority of players according to the website overbuff, I linked my profile in the original post.

Hanzo: 6.3 deaths per 10 minutes top 2%, Soldier: 6.3 deaths top 4%, Zen 8.00 deaths top 25%, Mercy 6.4 deaths top 12% Rein: 4.7 deaths top 1% Orisa: 5.00 deaths top 2%

So I donít really think itís that Iím dying too much. Personally I think itís that I played too much Mercy (350 hours on Mercy out of 600+) I shouldíve spent more time practicing DPS/tank instead of one tricking

Dear mercyonetrick, this dosenít mean that your aim is bad, it means that you have problems with positioning, i believe that every xim user has the advantage in terms of aiming but if they at low ranks or whatever, this is because the positioning, just try to improve your positioning and keep in mind that most new xim users started from the same place whichís plat or ever lower :)

Yeah I do have bad positioning sometimes but I think itís getting better. Iím not dying out of position as much as before. I just need to refine my positioning and also work on game sense I think
