I felt the same way after not playing Team Fortress 2 for six years. When I went back I was doing OK at first but then I started dying a lot. All those fancy new weapons started overwhelming me. I failed horribly, felt a huge disconnect between myself and the class I'd spent almost 1600 hours getting good at and haven't been back since. It's not the same game anymore and I didn't find it as fun.
"Hey, you're Pharah right? What's your ult status cuz mine is good to go. I could trap them and you can take em all out with justice."
"...OMG yes! Let's do that. Yes! That's a great idea!"
So i'm feeling good about myself, because he's somehow never heard of that combo and he thinks I'm super smart. We were escorting on El Dorado, turning the corner to the entrance to the enemy base.
"Ok, Justice is ready, hit em whenever!"
The whole enemy team is running to stop the payload from the entrance... here's my chance! *FOONT* I completely biff the shot and it sails harmlessly over all of them. He rains justice and I think maybe gets one of them. He was disappointed in me... I was disappointed in myself.
Then when they announced Lunar New Year loot I haven't even bothered to log in because I ran out of credits and I'd have to pay money to buy cosmetics for a game I stopped playing five months ago.
i'm still not good.
That's what drove me away every time I started thinking about playing TF2 again. I'm very, very glad that Overwatch items are only cosmetic.
Which is why I tend to play Warframe these days.
