This streamer found the perfect song for ranked Overwatch

Sometimes, things are so bad only a song can convey that deep feeling of sorrow within, this was the case with Twitch streamer Redshell, as he blasted Coldplay after a particularly frustrating Overwatch ranked match.

There is no better metaphor for Redshell's previous match, and Overwatch ranked in general, than Chris Martin crooning the band's 2005 hit "Fix You" as the streamer stares blankly at the screen.

"When you try your best but you don't succeed," it really feels like Martin was writing about ranked all the way back in 2005 as Redshell tries to talk to his group partner in chat.

Redshell told his teammate he didn't know what happened, before leaving the group to brave the wilds of solo queue due to dangerous amounts of tilt.

After telling his teammate "good luck," Redshell puts his hood up and sinks back as Coldplay continues to perfectly set the scene.


Overwatch's ranked system has been under some serious fire for a while, with everyone from pro players and streamers to regular players complaining about it.

The "looking for group" feature was heralded as somewhat of a savior for ranked play by some but has quickly lost the appeal and player numbers it debuted with.

Redshell isn't alone in his sorrow though, there are plenty of players out there who have said they feel the same way any time they try to play a ranked match in Overwatch.
