    I bought this the weekend. Any tips for new starters I nearly got kicked out of a non ranked game for I think no reason?

    Off the top of my head:

    Make as little noise as possible at almost all times (if in doubt crouch or alt move, don't move around needlessly).

    Learn which walls are fully destructible (Sledge can be a good pick to test things!), which ones can be shot through and which are safe.

    If in doubt: drone an area then move in.

    Don't be a hero!

    Don't barricade between bombs.

    Don't Fuse the hostage.

    Definitely don't Fuse your team-mates. :p

    Be careful of windows until you're sure there's no Glaz.

    If you see a hole in a wall or window, someone's probably looking through it.

    Watching streamers can be useful so you get an idea of how to approach levels.

    Oh, and one issue with solo play is that there seems to be a decent chance you can be put in with a team of 4 people who are much higher skill level than you, which is probably why you got kicked.

    In all honesty though it's probably for the best! So don't take it to heart and just jump in and hope for another group of noobies.

    Use a mic. You'll learn so much from ppl helping you, people actually talk on this game and can help you not do silly things (that we all did)

    I kinda jumped in to it and bagged myself a kill but I just didn't know where to set up properly and stuff. I did try and help my team mates with the cameras once dead though calling locations out.

    To someone wondering if they should pick up the game, unintentionally hilarious! :-P

    I would give it a go but I feel like a game this competitive HAS to have an incredibly hostile community.

    tbh I've had worse and more plentiful shitheads in Overwatch, though I do just play casual with friends in R6. Maybe the angry Russians are all in ranked...

    Edit: On PC, that is. I keep on forgetting this is out on consoles too.

    I have had one bad experience online on Xbone (I mean there are always some arseholes, some TKing, but I dont count those unless it happens a lot, but it doesnt, not in Ranked).

    Added loads of randoms from in game to my friends list, and okayed with them a lot.

    Literally can't believe they're actually removing maps from this game. Seige is still my most played game but this past 6montjs has been ridiculous and now they're severely reducing the availible maps especially in ranked...

    Of course they're removing maps, you can't keep on shovelling more and more into a ranked mode worth it's name.

    No plane?! On ranked ?! WHY

    Same reason to put a rotation into anything: so people don't have to memorise everything to compete.

    I can see them withdrawing some of the maps from ranked to be reworked, since they are unbalanced, and can be frustrating. But I think they went too far with how many they cut from ranked. Who cares about matching the pro league list. They are refining the game for a very very small fraction of players, those who play at a diamond elite level. I think they'll walk this one back once they see the response.

    I just really don't understand this move. I have hundreds and hundreds of hours in this game, and yes I groan when Plane or Yacht comes up, but I have no intention of trying to compete at the highest level, so I'd just like to have some nice variety. It's really bizarre and they need to communicate their reasoning better.

    Plane is pretty bad. It plays out the same way almost every time. Along with Yacht it's probably the least dynamic of the set.

    I'm sad that they have taken away my Raymond Luxury Yacht. Glad to see Favela go though, I hate that map.

    Keep leaving the House in though don't they, even though it's the most basic and annoying of all the maps.

    What's not to get? You get better when you only practice a handful of maps, the point of ranked is to see how good you are. There doesn't seem to be much else to it.

    Ok, but the game has been out for years now, so we don't really need to shrink the map pool for "practice".

    Depends, if the want to bring in new players or increase the standards of ranked play then it'll help a lot.

    Plus they're still adding more maps. Sometimes old maps that seemed like a good idea at the time turn out to be bad, sometimes they just get old, sometimes certain maps can warp the meta in a particular direction. They're all good reasons to do something like this.

    I kind of understand what you are trying to say. Maybe it will help with new player retention for ranked play, since maps will be more familiar. When I was new, I couldn't figure out my way around Clubhouse for quite a while. But it could also cause burn out in vets, and the optics of reducing content is really bad press for players who haven't bought the game yet.

    And why reduce casual map list? Favela is an amazing casual map.

    It's not even about new players, all players will be getting better faster with a smaller map pool. But yeah, burn out can be an issue and I do hope they have a decent rate of rotation - every month or so would be pretty good, even.

    The same thing kinda applies to casual as well. Particularly as they seem to be about to hit a wall with the amount of maps they need to support at the same time. This way things can get taken out, worked on if need be, slotted back in to casual and promoted to pro/ranked. It all seems like a very good idea, to me.

    Rotation is a completely different notion, which could work nicely. That's why they need to communicate better. They haven't used the word rotation yet, so everyone (as always on the internet) is anticipating the worst: deletion.

    I only read the content and not title. From the content of that post I don't infer any rotation, only a contraction of the map pool. You read differently?
