You honestly don't need a mic in this game. I have two accounts in diamond and 95% of the time, I don't use my mic. It's not that I'm adamantly against using it or anything, (I use it all the time in Destiny and when playing with friends) but I tend to play "off-meta" characters and I can't tell you how many times people start whining before the match even starts. It just gets depressing listening to people complain about my picks.

Call outs are great and if I feel like the people on my team are decent human beings, I'll unmute my mic and participate in call outs and strategy. But if the first thing I hear is some dingus crying about my picks, than no, I won't be using my mic.
Would you strongly disagree, slightly disagree, or only disagree with this sentence?

I normally solo queue, and wait to see what happens during the game... if I am the only one with a mic, I stay silent

Because there's inevitably a duo or trio queue who refuse to join team chat.

Because even if there are more than 3 people in team chat, no one talks.

Because if I do try to initiate there's a decent chance someone's going to make a dumb comment about me being female.

I get this... except I'm a guy... 23 years old and the balls have yet to drop. Why
I always wear my hazmat suit when perusing the toxic environment of GameFaqs.

I'm deaf, I've never used a mic unless it's with my friends and brother whom I know well. I know their speech patterns and the words they like to use so it's easier for me to understand them.

If I tried to listen to randoms, I'd be useless because I'd spend 75% of the time trying to figure out what those randos are shouting over the mic.

I play the objective, almost always as Reinhardt or Zenyatta and I know when to switch to a more appropriate pick if the situation calls for it.

It's not necessary to win, but it certainly helps to use a mic.

I used to use the mic all the time, till I fought with few people over the mic and I realised most players on overwatch are A holes, then I stopped using the mic for a while, now I use it only when other people are using it

For some reason, my PS4 Gold Mic doesn't transmit my voice as loud compared to PS4. Everytime I talk, I have to raise my voice.

Ironically, my cheap, generic phone mic did a better job as a PC mic compared to it haha
