Never.

Even when Im playing amazing and losing because of teammates, I can still find things to blame myself for and improve.

Going down the "Teammates all suck" path is super slippery, and you stop growing as a player and become super complacent. If I'm criticizing myself, I don't get mad and I keep improving.

Plus, Blaming teammates just makes them play worse, because the finger pointing game is always a s***show. It feels like some people just randomly choose somebody to complain about when losing, and then they ensure the loss once the tilting blame game begins (Some people do it before the door even opens)

While a good attitude, it's trying way too hard. Even pro players make dozens of tiny mistakes every game, it's such a fast paced game that it's bound to happen. Contemplating on your choices in-game after the fact is a very good habit, but doesn't relinquish your teammates from blame if they make bad picks or underperform.
Not changing sig until Kingdom Hearts 3 comes out. And also because I can't think of something original right now. No, I will not put a start date on this.

If I'm in Quick Play with no mic, everything is my team's fault. Even my poor aim. :D

While on mic, and actually trying in comp, casting blame just hurts everyone. Maturely addressing responsibility and requesting they alter their play to fix it is different than raging at them. Just don't be an ass about it, be constructive.

Here's a hot tip; stop blaming your team. Blame the red team. Focus all your aggression towards those pricks.

When you have Gold damage as Winston. Never, in any situation, should a Winston do more damage than the rest of the team assuming all six players are playing the game.

Generally I try to avoid it but if there's some Mercy pocket healing their friend who's at full health and ignoring everyone else or just running around going battle Mercy I might blame them. Or if everyone's oblivious to the objective and stands just outside it only concerning themselves with shooting stuff or constantly diving in alone them yelling at everyone when they die.

Ore my personal favorite, standing just in front of my Rein's shield. I'm really going to blame them for that. That's just idiotic.

When you get gold in damage, healing, solo kills and objective time as Zenyatta.
Final Fantasy XIII is critically and commercially successful. By all definitions it is one of the best.

I'm usually mercy since no one wants to be her. So it's hard for me to switch or no healer.

I try not to tell people who to play even when my team's losing, but certain situation annoyed me.

For example,

All dps teammates, but no solider 76 or reaper. Enemy team has pharah or 2 tank. We get wrecked, still no one adjust their pick to the situation.

Widowmaker + Hanzo combo. Don't get me wrong, they are both good. I just don't see the point of 2 sniper. I have only been in 1 game when we actually won with this combo.

Players throwing game. Met a lucio who stood in front of the tunnel to get hit by car or just jump to death. Why even play team match and waste space, just go free for all.
