It's more likely that they already played Symmetra, but fighting for the dps spot before role queue was just a chore so they defaulted to tanks and supports.Has anyone else noticed a massive uptick in Symmetra players? I swear like 75% of my matches have at least one sym in them, and probably 40% have a sym on both sides. My theory is that with role queue, players who previously felt boxed into only playing support or tank are branching out into dps more, and Sym is a less intimidating dps to pick up because her mechanical requirements are lower than most other damage characters.
There aren't mamy people who don't know a character even in a "just for fun" way, but the way comp was set up earlier you weren't encouraged in playing anything but your best, and definitely the smart player wasn't encouraged in playing dps because of all the Widow/Hanzo/Genji instalocks.
Speaking of Symmetra, why the hell are people still dumb about (not) using teleporters? It's right there! Saves you 3-4 seconds of walking back from spawn midfight! Why havent you bound the Interact key yet you dumbass McCree sorry that got away from me.
