Depends heavily on what the other 5 players are running.

All 5 teammates playing DPS = Zen is perfectly acceptable.

Just Play Moira...do people keep forgetting Moira is also a semi-dps healer? and her heals aren't slow as molasses

There's an "easy" fix for this, have them release a main tank-main healer hero. So those of us who do care and (usually) pick what the team needs can actually fill both necessary roles with one pick, letting the remaining 5 twerps muddle about.

how would that work? have half of the character show up on tank role and the other half on support?

i don't see them making a great tank that's also a great solo healer

Moira is fine too, but not that much better than Zen when the team refuses to run any tanks. You don't need that much burst or AOE healing when you have a bunch of squishies jumping all over the map. Moira's ult would be much less useful than Zen's as well.

Not clue regarding placing and not saying easy to make. Just saying that until that happens, one person cannot fill the roles of Main Tank AND Main Healer. And since nobody on the "team" is willing to play one half of that duo...

Being part of the problem is why most the people arguing for throwers are in plat and lower.

but who would even be alive with zenyatta's orbs of harmony being the only consistent heals going around?

at some point you gotta suck it up and just do what the team needs instead of just half-assing it and going with the healer who heals at a snail's pace

unless you think the opposing team isn't gonna damage them much

One person being the answer/not part of the problem doesn't overcome 5 people being part of the problem.

Played 21 matches so far this season, have had a main tank in 5 matches (and this includes Reins that press Charge as soon as its off CD regardless of situation). Been solo heals half the matches, with S76 on team in 3 matches to help with heals. Doesn't matter if I instalock healer, still no main tank. Instalock main tank, lucky if get Lucio as "healer."

And all 6 people also thinking this, are why there's a problem to begin with.
