Wow, what a difference 24 hours makes. XD Today was a good one in Overwatch! Three in-game victories out of five? six? games– two with Lucio, one with Soldier76. Even the defeats were hard-fought and not just pure stompage. (Well except for one, when I was dumped into a match 30 seconds before the team failed to escort their objective to the destination.) The best part, actually, was when another player got Play of the Game by one-shotting my Soldier as Widowmaker. I had to watch it on the Kill Cam, then at PotG, and I was just laughing the whole time. GG, WM. I ain't even mad. XD
See now, that's how the game is supposed to go! When even getting beaten is fun, you're doing it right. And I couldn't tell you what the difference was. I have my suspicions– first game was in the afternoon instead of at night, so I had more energy/awareness; computer worked right off the bat instead of crashing several times, so I wasn't frustrated before even getting in; and I've been studying L2P videos on YouTube when I can. I'm sure there's also the luck of the draw on the opposing players' skill levels, but there weren't any matches where I felt like the other team was just plain weak. I really think I've actually just gotten a bit better sometime between yesterday and today.
This doesn't mean that I am suddenly a champion, by any stretch. And none of my victories today were using My Gal D.Va, but that will come. (My first in-game victory was with D.Va, so we'll always have that!) I'd like to get a few in before she gets her buff, which will probably be in a couple of weeks.
Anyway! It's a really good feeling to have finally done well, and I'm glad I've stuck with it. Now to build on that success!
