i have always had anxiety about my sr and i sometimes would just play qp bec i didn't want to loose my rank but thanks to this vid and "How to Avoid Getting tilted" i got to diamond thx

This didn't really address my main concern. My "Competitive Anxiety" is more about being scared to queue because I'm worried about being an anchor on my team.

I really struggled with competitive ladder anxiety. I've gotten better at not being mad at myself for losing SR as long as I played well. These tips are great for me to keep in mind when I get an unwinnable game.

Hey @McFlurry! Yes, perhaps you could :) And maybe you could find a video covering this topic from a Top 500 pro coach if you searched for long enough! However second to more advanced and up-to-date content, what we want to save you is time. The less time you have to spend trawling around YouTube / livestreams searching for good, reliable info, the more time you can spend in Overwatch putting what you've learned to use!
