HL is DEAD! 2.0 better fix it

General Discussion
Soooo i have been playing this game since Alpha, and i have no idea what is going on but HL is so damn bad now its not even worth playing, in fact i might leave game altogether. And i don't want to hear ( you must suck or not know what your doing ) now i might not be a GM or anything but trust me i know BASICS, something that is lacking badly in HL, i mean when 4 of the players are hitting the tank in a TF EVERY game while you are only one hitting DMG or healer, and then you get yelled at for pointing that out... yeah give me a break. And this is EVERY HL i played this season and last. So my point is Hl needs to have stricter perimeters to be able to play IMO. the players in HL right now have no knowledge of basics like stuff bronze players should know
Bad =/= Dead

Mkay?
The only thing 2.0 is fixing is their profits.

What I was thinking.
The only problem that I have with HL/TL is they punish you really hard for losing, but the queue is so lite that you end up fighting master's and your a bronze at best.

If we did do an upset win, we would get nothing for it, but if we lose we get punished for being bad at the game.

I am one who believes everyone sucks a game until they see their mistakes and improve. I just don't understand how/why bronzes should feel bad for losing when they are fighting platinums or higher :-(
the players i am always up against are silver 1-5 and they are all the same. have no clue the basics and always pick their "favorite" heroes
Another dead topic. (Pun intended)

Edit: since when "don't focus tank" was actually a basic knowledge? You hit the closest target while maintaining your position. I don't know who the hell invented the idea "don't hit tank". That idea is making plebs suicide just to get to that healer/assassin. Smh
It's has been said before; if you want to get out of Silver, you should focus on your gameplay.
ahh yes the obligatory " its you up your game " comment, well sorry its NOT me, i would be willing to play anyone that says "its you" because i know i am good, not GM good but i am def NOT a silver player, and as far as the dont focus tanks, yeah dude you should def not focus tanks... thats pretty common knowledge, if there is a jania and a lets say art next to each other and my team is ALWAYS hitting the art... i think thats probably not good

Well, maybe there's a reason I am playing with Diamond and masters in regular basis while you're stuck in silver. I guess I'm playing this game wrong;)

You hit the closest target, unless you see an enemy healer/assassin out of position! Try to apply that and let's talk again later.
Don't dive to focus the assassin/healer unless you have a dive comp and your intiator dives in.

That's the problem in this game, most people don't know how to team fight. You poke until your initiator initiates. Then you blow up the out of position target. You focus whoever you can focus safely. If that's the tank, then you focus the tank. Now if someone lands a 3 man root or a 3 man stun or something like that and you are focusing the tank instead of the squishy, yeah, you have a gripe. But if the tank is the only one you can safely hit, that's who you hit. Stop getting yourself killed trying to make a play happen that isn't there and punish the enemy when they make those mistakes and you will climb out of silver.
About focus fire someone said it too; focus people out of position. Be it a tank, an assassin, a support or a specialist.

The problem with that is that silver level players will never believe you, they will still claim that focusing a tank is *never* good, and find all sort of excuses as of why they are stuck in silver while you are master/diamond ;D
I only reached Platinum soo far but yes, exactly what you said.
im less excited now that re rolling boxs has been jacked up in price and the legendary pool is heavily diluted with trash like tracer and kaelthos
so my 3 vet chests will inevitably be filled with crap i dont own and DONT want

So you should focus on learning heroes that work well with any comp, especially warriors, and you'll climb.
Everyone says focus on your play.. get better.. thats great but when your teammates dont understand the draft or know how laning gains xp and grouping up for objectives is kind of a big deal your going to lose..

Most people i pair with get lost in the game, they roam alone or or roatate endlessly around the map not contrubiting, are late for team engagements and objectives... its yet again a losing situation.

Im not saying im perfect but i play well with others who know how all this works. i love games that come down to the team that makes a really nice play or big mistake. but they are so rare now.. its sad.
why do people always say I have been playing this game since alpha or beta ? that doesn't mean anything because one in alpha and beta this game was completely different and two its stupid to think that your better then everyone else and know what your talking about just because you played sense alpha or beta LOL. people really need to stop saying that.

I understand what you guys are saying, everyone IS different and going to play different, but bottom line is if you put any good amount of time into game and look up things and builds and how to play different toons you should know little things like when to gank how to not get ganked, in a tf lets not ALL focus the tank ( yes i understand if you can only hit the tank hit the tank and i never said anything about diving the !@#/healer just to dive ) what i did say is if you had to pick in a tf why would you hit the tank and not the squish? and btw if the other team is any good the tank should always be in front while the squish should be very hard to hit, so my point to all of this is if you where to put me in a team with all Diamond 5 or better nobody would know i was stuck in silver thats just truth
