I was sad because I realised this is one of the few times I will ever get to fight someone who is that much better than me in Overwatch.
I play a lot of fighting games, and if I have learned anything from playing those, it is that losing breeds improvement. It can be nearly impossible to improve when you are playing against players that are just as bad as you are all the time. They wont punish your mistakes or make you feel like you are less than perfect and need improvement.
This means you will always feel like you are at a lower rank than you deserve, even if you are right where you belong. You have no way of knowing that though, and improving becomes and eternal pain in the d*ck because of it.
I wish this game had a mode in which I could play against significantly better players occasionally. Players that would begin to make it very obvious what mistakes I am making so that I can actually work to improve rather than always have this feeling that the one trick genjo on my team is the only reason I'm hardstuck. But alas, Overwatch doesnt want to make me feel like to much of a "loser" so I'm only allowed to play with slightly beter players at absolute best almost all of the time. Now, I have to jump into random arcade modes or community servers and just hope I find someone with genuine skill to teach me a thing or two.
But for now, I am just sad that I will likely be hardstuck in Plat because thats where I deserve to be. And this Grandmaster's skill made that painfully obvious.
