Despite the 10 million players this game is supposed to have I am sometime struggling to find a game at the moment, sometimes waiting 2-3 minutes to be placed in one and even then often being kicked back to the Lobby due to a lack of players.

Mind you I'm still a lowly level 9 trying quickplay - has everyone else moved to competitive?

2 Tracer legendaries from 2 consecutive crates.
A few levels away from prestige 2, too.

Queue times have gone up lately. Premades destroyed this game. There needs to be a separate queue for solo players strictly.

It's great they finally made groups visible. Looks balanced.

I mean that game was lost from the start, but it still is a 5 man group against all random.

I haven't touched competitive since I did my placement matches; I get frustrated enough solo queueing in quick play.

Edit: LogicError#1267, US, although I haven't been playing that much lately since my internet has started cutting out every 30-45 minutes.

They just rearranged the heroes. I think we can expect Sombra next, and then Doomfist.

Hit prestige 2.

Why the fuck would you think any of these horrible, horrible characters look good in any way

They're basically marginally better than Olympic mascots

Aside from sprays and icons, you’ll also receive a number of Competitive Points based on the maximum skill rating you achieved during the season.

Here’s the Skill Rating (SR) to Competitive Point (CP) breakdown for Season 1:

Still lost, because fuck coin toss and fuck blizzard up the ass for this retarded system, implemented in comp no less.

Also, mm is god damn awful :x

It kills me inside every time I get gold kills as Zenyatta and then the team loses thanks to coin toss.

How could they possibly think that sudden death was a good idea?
