Especially after you've gone triple Quadruple dps and 1 tank. I like being able to actually defend myself.

You're just as much a problem in that situation as your team.

I get the frustration on your part. Seeing teammates autolock triple or quadruple DPS without anyone switching is highly demotivating because you know the odds are heavily stacked against your team from the get-go. We've all been there, so we're all well aware of how much it sucks. Even so, choosing to solo heal as Zen when you know how small his healing output is is throwing. You seriously could not pick a worse character to do it with and the inevitable loss is just as much your own fault as it is everyone else's.

I don't know what you were trying to accomplish with this thread, but you won't get any sympathy from most of us. I could understand a topic complaining about the team picks, but not a topic along the lines of "if teammates do this, then I'm not even going to try". Be part of the solution, not the problem.

Solo healing as Zen seems like the worst possible pick.

Slow health regen through shields,
No CC, peal or escape
Most vulnerable healer.

If you hard pick and are stubborn, you accept all the losses caused by it, Run Moira, Mercy or even Lucio in a solo healer situation if you want to win.

The life of a flex is often solo healing or tanking, so pick the best one for the job to your skillset, Zenyatta is a great pick in 95% of situations, don't hard pick him in that last 5% that he's not.

If I'm gonna lose solo healing, I'm playing offense too. sorry not sorry for choosing not to be a bullet sponge(aka playing mercy in a terrible team comp) for thirsty Play of the Game tryhards. 7800 healing (3500 in transcendence) last game and we lost. You dont wanna add a 2nd healer or pick characters that can self heal? Oh well.

edit: that's on top of a 45 percent kill participation rate.

Everyone else isnt trying so why should I.

Says Everyone
Who would have tried
If anyone else did
but nobody else tried
so they didn't

Enjoy your self attained losses, and don't blame the other 5 people not trying (that you also call tryhards), while you don't try.

These stats are meaningless if you were on a bad team and solo healing as Zen. And 7800 healing is pretty low to be quite honest.

Had you actually picked a solo healer then maybe your team could have won. If you want to win, sometimes you have to take one for the team.

6 people throwing because of the other 5 people is still 6 throwers. Stop being part of the problem.

If you recognize a problem and choose a character that you know is just going to make things worse, then yeah, you are a thrower. With an attitude like that, you really shouldn't expect anyone to take you seriously. You deserve every loss you get.
