How is it? Is there a community that plays it on here? I'm usually playing PUBG, CS:GO, and ARMA but want something new to try and was really thinking about it since its on sale right now through Blizzard.

It'd be simpler just to play it yourself during the free trial that's going till tomorrow.

I played it on the Xone back in the day a little so I know it'll be 1000x better with mouse and keyboard controls how is the learning curve at this point on PC tho? Am I going to be thrown into games with players wayyyyy more skilled than me or does it have a pretty good matchmaking system?

I think its a great game, but for some reaosn I just don't enjoy it

Its simply not my style of game, but its really fun for some. If you liked it during the free trails then I would recommend it

I bought it at launch, wasn't worth the $40 IMO. However, they've released a bunch of new heroes, maps and game modes since then. It's worth $20 for sure. It's the only MP game I put time into.

As for matchmaking, it depends. Quick Play is a roll of the dice. You could play against six random bronze level players or a six-stack of grandmasters. I don't play Competitive that much, but I do feel like the system does an okay job of pairing you up against players of similar skill. Don't really know how well the system works with new people, though.

Pretty fun for a quick casual game. Competitive Mode is filled with a lot of toxic players, which is to be expected. You can easily drop 200 rating because X guy wasn't picking a hero that better suits the team's composition or Y guy that's throwing the game by not attacking because the team isn't trying hard enough.

I enjoyed it at first but the lack of people playing the objective and instead playing team death match got to me so I moved onto rainbow six siege because at least in that you can still win playing team death match.

Sorta like Team Fortress 2 except with locked-in skills and cooldowns rather than loadouts. Matchmaking isn't perfect but you shouldn't be put against someone in the top 500 unless someone else in top 500 is on your team too - probably because they're playing with a friend who's new to the game or who has a very low hidden matchmaking rating (usually smurf account).

It's fun if you stick to Quick Play and Arcades as most toxic players play Competitive.
