Playing as Lúcio
After dying as Lucio, pay attention to the game feed if some of your team mates are dying, wait for them to respawn and get them back to the fight fast with your speed boost.

Playing as Roadhog
Don't forget the melee strike when you hook someone. Lots of characters will survive if you just shoot them.

Playing with Symmetra
Faster heroes like Tracer or Genji should avoid using the teleporter unless absolutely necessary (like overtime) to allow slower heroes to utilize the limited slots the teleporter has available.

Playing as Hanzo
Do not shoot genji with dragonstrike, because if he is a good player, he will probably deflect it back at you.

Shoot other players with your sensor arrow so you can see their every move, until they dash or become invisible.

Playing as Genji
I have been playing Genji about 19 hours now as a lvl 165, and I find that the easiest way to secure a kill is to shoot a burst of straight shurikens then dash in and use fan of blades. My tips for Genji are to try to stay away from Winston, Zarya, and Mei. If you are forced to go 1v1 against them, Mei is very tricky but if you constantly wall jump and burst her you should be okay. Zarya is a bit easier as her beam is somewhat easy to dodge. Just get close and try to stay away from her front as much as possible. Winston can be a very tough fight as his gun tracks you, so if possible avoid a fight unless you have a support or someone else to help you. Personally I can deal with most characters, but torbjorn seems to be my bane. Biggest tip is to try and get behind and take out most squishy as quick as possible. By the time someone notices they should be either dead or very close. The primary fire can be devastating if you hit all three with headshots.
