You should watch some of the KarQ instructional videos. His message is that you can really only focus on yourself in a competitive match and don’t be negative at all about anything your team is doing. That matches my experience that toxicity loses more matches than lack of skill.
There’s really no way they can implement a lower SR loss for leavers. It would just be abused. For example, you and I are grouped up and it’s obvious we are going to lose the match for whatever reason. I leave the match and take the penalty and suspension just so that you don’t lose SR. That’s an exploit and it would be difficul, if not impossible, to prevent or punish.
Leavers you can’t do anything about. I did watch a match where MoonMoon won 5v6 because the team came together and really performed very well. It was epic to watch, but the point is that you shouldn’t give up on it as an impossible situation.
Hanzo, Mei, and Genji can all be good picks on attack. Again, focus on bringing your best possible game and coordinating with your team. Don’t tell people to switch heroes because you don’t like who they picked, especially before you’ve been in the first team fight. We had an attack Torb on Eichenwalde yesterday. Everyone in the lobby was telling him to switch because it wouldn’t work. I asked them to give him a chance to show us what he could do. This guy was awesome and we ended up winning and we all had armor packs the entire push. We made it to the second checkpoint before they finally stopped the payload.
My point is that you can only control you and that you should not bring any toxicity to the match, only your best gameplay.
