Overwatch (blizzard game like HOTS/DOTA meets TF2)

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

Postby Stoner Witch » Thu May 05, 2016 10:20 pm

Anyone else checking out open beta this weekend?

I dicked around for a bit, but my roommate has been fucking with it heavy and is really digging it.

I plan on diving in headfirst tomorrow night/Saturday. Trying to get my HOTS crew to check it out with me.

My bnet is KHANATE.522

Let's blow some shit up.

I've been playing on Xbox. I didn't care much for this game before playing the beta, but now I'm hooked. Definitely a day one purchase.

What characters are you guys using? I've been partial to Roadhog, Tracer, and motherfucking Mercy! I love healing in this game.

Downloaded the beta and I'm gonna play a bit tonight. What is the best class for someone who just likes to run and gun?

offense.

soldier 76, maybe pharah (if you like quake, and flying), tracer, but her she has a real high skill cap to play effectively.

no problem.

I haven't really played since they closed the beta a month ago.

I had probably 100 hours or so on roadhog, and may be 20 with mcree, pharah and zenyetta each. I might log in tonight

Yeah I just want to be able to play ranked games so it'll weed out some idiots. Every now and then I get a game with at least 3 tanks, no healers, too many Reapers, etc.

if i'm playing offense i usually either go Genji or Pharah, Defense I'm going with Tormund or Mei, unless i'm sniping. Tanks I go for Reinhardt or Roadhog, although zarya's super might be the best out of the tanks. works really well when paired with Pharah's or reaper's supers. Healing I go with zenyatta or lucio.

Why? Wasn't their open beta the most played beta of all time? I had no issues whatsoever when I played it. I know the standard is to expect servers to suck on launch now, but Blizzard already proved that their shit works.

Either way, I'm about to leave work and grab it.

Had a game where I picked Mcree, then some other guy on my team picked mcree. I asked him to change and he wouldnt. Then his two other buddies called me toxic and also picked mcree. That game did not go well.

biggest problem with this game. bunch of 12 year olds playing as reaper.



I had a game during beta where everyone on my team(defense) picked torbjorn. this was on the russian map and there were turrets everywhere. other team was soooooooo pissed, they barely got out of their spawn. I wish i had saved the video of that game.


ps. floating platforms on that map are the best place for turrets. drives the other team nuts.



I'm trying to get really good with genji, but that is a hard character to learn. did figure out that his throwing stars have an insanely long range. now i gotta master the deflect.

Is there still voice chat in this game?

I want to buy this but I think I'm going to wait until later this summer for a price drop. I'm all set with games right now anyway.

I've been playing mostly McCree, D. Va and Mercy. I played a game of control last night and took something like 60% of the team's damage as Mercy. Then at the end of the round, everyone voted for someone that had like ~15 eliminations...shows where players' priorities are.

Assault = Team Deathmatch
Escort = Team Deathmatch
Control = Team Deathmatch

that's awesome. actually watching them right now vs cloud 9.

what games did they play previously? I know a lot of pros have been top players from TF2, ShootMania, bf4, and some ex-csgo guys (little less for csgo).

I've probably known Seagull for 10 years and Milo for about 6. We all played hl2dm together for a cool minute and they went on to play competitive TF2. I also have some other old clan mates make it pretty far in shootmania. They placed like 2nd or 3rd in the IPL5 shootmania tournament.

I'm side tracking, but I played the shit out of this game for a long time.
