A Comprehensive Guide to Overwatch Competitive

Solo queue.

The infamous place where dreams are broken, monitors are punched and curses target fellow players indiscriminately.

Player Four picks Torbjorn, builds a turret in spawn, and dances in one game. The next, you have a Hanzo-only bigot who refuses to swap due to his one, golden elimination. At the end of the game, your team is mocked by the enemy team. ez ez ez.

Sound familiar? I bet.

No more shall you suffer! The days of terror are over, as this guide will teach you how to climb from low elo to mid-elo. Platinum and diamond will no longer be goals for ‘next season’; now is your time. As long as you follow this tutorial to the ‘T’, I can guarantee it.

“But how can you really guarantee this?”, you ask?

I’ve consistently ended in Diamond/Platinum each season (aside from last season when ALL of my computers broke… I really couldn’t play in time.) with the exception of Season Three when I went over and beyond.

Furthermore, I’ve played for a small team which I managed and was a part of, coming second place in the CV Tournament of last June. This experience was a great one, and I’ve learned a lot from people who are better and worse than me. Due to this, I’ve probably experienced almost every competitive mode gripe you can come up with.

I know the struggle of trying to climb. I’ve had times when I’ve fallen over 700 skill rating in eleven days with no redemption. That meant I plummeted from diamond and landed somewhere in low gold, bordering silver. Scary stuff. But, I managed to climb out and secure an even higher position, and so can you! If I’d been told about the techniques that I will cover in this guide, the grind would have been absolutely easy.

The one thing you must know is that you can climb. No matter what, you can do it. There’s nothing to lose by reading these posts, so why not give it a try?

Let’s work together and push this payload to where you want it to be.
