Ori and the Will of the Wisps – Just as sad, but way more forgiving

Whenever I think back to 2015’s Ori and the Blind Forest, I remember this difficult, beautiful and amazing video game.

In my recent binge, I’ve started to see a few reoccurring kinds of people who end up ruining my games, now I’m not talking about people who refuse to use mic or when three of the team instalock DPS as soon as they are able. It’s annoying, yeah, but that’s just the experience by this point. These are the kind of people who actually seem to care about playing the game enough to use a mic and talk to their team mates.

So here are the five kinds of players, in no particular order, who have made my life the most miserable when playing Overwatch this past month.
