Competitive last night was kind of crazy. Lost one game where we were doing quite well, one person dropped, then three more, and we were two on six, and we still captured a third of the second point after we were down four.
Yeah. That's right. We took a third of a point two on fucking six. It was a C9, of course - I kept them entertained at spawn while my sole remaining teammate snuck over and captured a third before the enemy team still alive could get back. I also chained over there after they got her, killed a couple of ‘em, sent it into overtime, and my Moira managed to get there in time after I went down to send it into overtime again. Best loss ever.
Then another one where we were doing pretty well in Hollywood, on our way to the second checkpoint, I guess 2/3rds of the way there, and we lost a player - and proceeded to make it to the second checkpoint, and the third checkpoint, and hold them on defence and win. Down one most of the game and won anyway.
The screaming, I can still hear it. ♥
But even aside from that, I was an absolute murderbot as Pharah last night. I don't know what was clicking, but something was. Four POTGs, most of them in a row, two other saved highlights that are clearly better than at least one of the actual plays of the game.
Click through for clip versions with audio. Let's go.
the one where we lost
Nothing magic about it, and we won this round. We lost the third in City Centre because enemy Zenyatta figured out who the fucking problem was and had my number instantly. I had to change to Brigitte to get any work done and we weren't competitive that way.
the one where we won
Five-four victory, I was the one who got us home on offence to tie it, and I'm the one who won it for us, right here. (Actual POTG was enemy team's Zarya, stopping one of our earlier pushes pretty much single-handedly. Deserved the POTG call, even if her team lost, it was amazing.)
first play of the game
Juicy barrage, I liked how I picked up the Ashe afterwards. (Big hat, big target doesn't just apply for Widowmaker. ( ˘ ³˘)❤)
second play of the game
I love me some environment kills, I do. So good.
third play of the game
Honestly don't remember the details on this one except that I was kind of surprised it was POTG. Our Roadhog was doing good work.
fourth play of the game
2-0 win. A lot of shot-caller endorsements on this game. Enemy team simply couldn't cope with me, at all, not even in the village, much less here.
So, yeah. I could use more nights like that in competitive. A win down 5 on 6, a partial capture down 2 on 6, and a lot of juicy victories, including one as Tracer I don't have but wish I did. Just a lot of nice.
