While this may not be D.Va related (or at least completely) I feel most comfortable posting it to this subreddit because it could be seen by someone who would be able to help me or others in situations like me
I've been a high bronze-low silver (not impressive at all I know) and my friend keeps telling me to at the very least listen in to my team for callouts. While my top 3 most played in general are Sombra, D.Va, and Mercy (in that order) I play a lot more D.Va and Mercy in comp and occasionally I'll go to other healers like Moira or other tanks like Rein or Zarya.
The main reason I don't join the team chats are because I'm afraid of the toxicity that will come. Because I play Mercy and D.Va majority of the time, I feel like I'd be labeled as a stereotypical "girl gamer" who doesn't know how to play anyone else. Also before I get burnt for saying that, I know that isn't true at all.
I know this is partially the reason that the find a team feature was made, to help people find teammates that work well with them and who they main. It's just that you can never know if the people in that group will be really toxic. Another thing is that most comp groups looking for players are like "HAVE MIC MUST BE PLAT RANK OR HIGHER." And like I said I'm a high bronze to low silver. Then again it's probably some people trying to get boosted but I dont judge I just question.
Another thing is that I dont have a full out headset, I have echoey earbuds that when barely moved create an earsplitting static noise. While they still have something like a mic that I can talk through and I can hear people, I just dont want to deafen someone with static.
Tl;dr - I'm a low bronze-high silver tank and support main (in comp at least). I'm afraid of being stereotyped as a "girl gamer" who only plays the easiest heroes. I dont feel entirely comfortable with the find a group feature because of names and the rank limit placed. And I have cheap earbuds.
To add even more, I play on XBox 1, I'm almost level 240 (give or take), and I've only done one comp placement this season. I'm just putting this here in case for whatever reason anyone wants to make a group so I can feel a little more comfortable with comp in general. (Or even help you feel more comfortable with comp)
Thank you for putting up with this rant-like topic I felt had be let out somewhere and I couldn't think of anywhere better than here.
UPDATE: I talked in team chat for one competitive 3v3 match and ended up making 3 friends in the same night!
