I was playing Quick Play on Illios and after one game this player asks me to join a group with him (I play on Xbox One) and I ignored it at first because I don’t normally group up with people I don’t know; I mainly solo queue because I don’t have anyone to play with and I’m super shy and I’m afraid I’m gonna hear someone say “this Mercy sucks” or yell something else at me. So after he sent me a group request for the third or fourth time I caved and went “what the hell.” I told him that I don’t have a mic and asked if that was okay and he said yes. We ended up having this nice conversation while we waited for a game. He had a mic and I could hear him since we were in a group and he must’ve been a 14/15 year old kid. He was a very nice young fellow and I tried keeping him alive but it was hard since he picked Tracer and dashed back and forth a lot. It’s rare to get nice messages from people, or any messages at all, telling you how good of a job you’re doing and that they appreciate healers. I don’t think we won, but it was interesting playing in a group with someone.
There are people out there who appreciate us healers, they’re just a rare type of person to come across. :)
