But Dave, the only common factor across all your games is you!
Incorrect. At this point I have enough empirical evidence to safely say that there is another common factor: all of my teammates had the same lobotomist.
Seriously, some highlights from recent games:
- A last-pick Tassadar as sole support against a beautifully rounded enemy comp; had 8,000 healing at the end of the game.
- A Lt. Morales who played solely in the front-line and then screamed at the rest of the team all game for not peeling (and who had the worst stat in every column across the board).
- Two strangers decided to play Cho'Gall. They didn't speak the same language. Cho was AFK for most of the game, rendering Gall totally useless.
- An eleven-death Sonya who clearly thought she was playing Suicide of the Storm.
I'm not a HotS pro, but I'm definitely not as shit-tier as the people I'm routinely matched with, and I cannot find or even see a way out.
