It's not my performance. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. I mean, well, I'm not a pro, I no doubt make plenty of mistakes. But I'm consistently getting good k/d ratios (even taking into account I'm mostly playing offensive heroes and should thus be at > 1).
The problem is the game itself. The matchmaking is just horrible. And there's a few serious problems with the game mechanics themselves as well. Just played three more games, each against teams that were slightly favored (1-2 points above us in score). First game we won easily, I got about 1/10th of a level. Second and third game were narrow defeats, and I lost nearly a full level each game.
I'm done with this game. Bad allies is one thing, and something that can eventually be fixed by joining a clan, but losing 6-8 times as much as you win against an enemy that is higher ranked is just fucking ridiculous.
K/D is not a good indicator of performance, especially in a game which counts assists as kills. My most-played character is Mercy (mostly just because I have the devil skin), and I still have a positive K/D.
I'm not playing the competitive mode. I gave it a try, but the first 5 attempts, someone left within 30 seconds, which cancelled the game. First completed game, I was on the losing team, we got stomped fair and square. Game after that, we did so well that 5 of the enemy team left midgame. It was just one dude left trying to fight off the six of us. That was not a good victory.
I just got the "Huge Success" achievement as Symmetra for teleporting 20 team mates in a single match, and now have Symmetra's "cute" spray. Yay, those cute sprays are the best, and I don't think I've ever seen anyone else with this one. I mean, we lost the match (narrowly), but the important thing is I earned a difficult-to-acquire thing!
