Overwatch (blizzard game like HOTS/DOTA meets TF2)

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

Postby Endeliot » Fri Jul 14, 2017 2:34 pm

I fucking love Overwatch and it's probably my favorite video game period since Counter Strike first dropped, but man solo queue is fucking garbage, especially on console, and even though I have some pals that play on PS4 (most play on PC or Xbox One), they're never playing the same time I am. It's pretty goddamn frustrating and most of my games end up with at least 2-3 people who are team stacked and won't switch to team chat or won't communicate period. I hope as time goes by the less serious players are weeded out but it seems like the opposite of that is happening. Can't even put a number on the amount of matches I've asked a 3-4 stack to go team chat and gotten "no" back as a response...like why in the fucking hell would you not want to communicate with your entire team?

Winston plays point, call out where you're going and lucio/tracer/genji/pharah should follow you and clean up. Remember, Winston deals 60 HP dmg per second to everyone he hits with his gun. When you jump, you deal 45 HP dmg within a 5m radius. Your ult isn't really intended to kill anyone, you can stall on the payload/point with it or you can use it to move people out of place and disrupt positioning. You can also use it to save your life if need be (staying alive > kills, ALWAYS).

Orisa/torb or Bastion with a Winston is so much fun.

yup. the most frustrating thing about this game. tonight i hopped on and played solo for 3 games, lost them all. every match there was a party of 3 who refused to join team chat. and would pick junk rat even if we needed another tank. finally, i got frustrated and saw a friend was on who i don't play with much but we partied up with another person. lost our first match because someone left mid match then won 5 matches straight. one of the matches we won was king of the hill.. 5 vs 6, we won the first point then a few minutes into the second our shitty hanzo main left. we won the second point by like 20 points and the last point we 100-0'd them. felt so satisfying lol

and yes, dive comp is such a successful meta, especially when the other team is using symmetra and rein. if i feel the other team is going to stack a heavy defense like any combo of rein, torb, orisa and or symmetra, i'll go Phara and suggest tracer and winston.

also, it blows my mind people are still instalocking Roadhog lol

I am having a great time playing Sombra lately. I might suck it up and hit up my season 5 placement matches even though I said I was done with competitive mode. Worst case is I'll be the only one on voice com and just practice calling out enemy positions like people are communicating. I'm just gonna decide going in to not give a shit if I get stuck on bad teams and just try and play well no matter what.

I complained about the nerf a little while back but after trying him again a few times i feel like he is still viable. Not as fun but still useful. The increase on shooting speed of his gun helps a lot.

In quickplay you can still do well with Hog. In competitive it's really tough, I hear. They are buffing him again soon.

Yeah, on all accounts season 5 is a gong show. I am pretty sure they are gonna retool for season 6 since 99% of the community just rips on competitive.

I love Torbjorn, but I've learned you can't play him all the time on Competitive or you'll get torched.

Getting into Winston now.

I enjoy all character types though.

So they nerfed roadhog, buffed reaper, and gave doomfist a one shot kill ability, makes sense.

Roadhog was the perfect character to slow down the dive comp, now, it's the most dominant comp in the game.

I like that the two games I've played Mercy does not disappear during team fights to get her rez off now. Haven't had a chance to play D.Va but Mercy changes are good.

I'm looking forward to Mercy's update as someone who plays her when healing
and ECSTATIC about D.Va's updated as a Pharah main because she negates my ult so well with her shield. Curious to see the rocket damage output by her though.

2200+ right now, gold rated. Just prestiged for the first time.

Should I get a Pharah of Torb golden gun??

pharah, torb suxxx

ended last season at 2100 then went 6-3 and one dc for placements and ended up at borderline gold HOW
i think me not having a main and playing variety of heroes has something to do with it maybe

i like roadhogs change though definitely is more sustainable but still miss old roadhog

It honestly doesn't matter if you win or lose, but the W/L ratio was still nice to see. I've only been playing since Season 3 and have slowly been getting better.

I usually play with my friends who are all 2600+ and can compete in those games, but I solo que a lot which makes climbing the ladder fucking awful.

yes, I'm like 2170-ish right now. It;s my 3rd season playing, so Im a little late to the party.

I watched the BlizzCon Overwatch worldcup, and it's inspired me to play off healer more. Been doing pretty good with Zen.

I've been playing D.Va and Junkrat the most this season though.

Yeah, I actually made diamond for the first time last season and this season after I got back from Fest I did my placement matches, did pretty bad (1 draw, 5 losses and 4 wins) and still placed in diamond, so that's cool. I've won all my games since then and I'm stoked to play some tonight for the first time in a few days.

The new healer looks fucking awesome, she reminds me a lot of Zenyatta in that she seems like she can heal and also put out a ton of damage. Zen is the only healer I've ever really mained so I'm stoked to play around with another one.

I've been maining mostly D.va for the last 3 seasons after not playing her at all, but I also play Zenyatta, Winston, Soldier 76, and Reaper. If someone won't switch and we need a healer/DPS/support/etc, I'll switch, even if I'm not great with a character. But yeah, I pretty much climbed to Diamond playing D.va.

ОТЛИЧИЯ ОТ ТРАДИЦИОННЫХ МЕДИА Прежде чем окунуться в исследование полезности от всех данных приборов, стоит отметить принципи- альные индивидуальности данных видов медиа. Вот не- насколько главных. Сегментация по интересам Важный метод сегментации аудитории при ра- боте - это фильтрация по интересам юзера, а не по полу-возрасту-цвету кожи и чему-там-еще. Почему в соц медиа работает конкретно таковой подъезд? Например, мы с моим экс-шефом Ми- хаилом Умаровым являемся почитателями 1-го достаточно узкого направленности музыки -х. Накрутка подписчиков бесплатно в эру интернета информа- ция принадлежит народу. Кроме общей профессии и предоставленного факта, у нас, размышляю, не так уж немало всеобщего. Вопрос - как реализовать нам не- кий новейший музыкальный продукт при всем идио- тизме данной затеи в эру полного скачивания контента ? Наружная реклама?

Мы живем на различных шоссе. Я не руковожу машинку - он руководит. Телевизор? Не смо- трю, и он, надеюсь, также. , где традиционно имеютвсешансы строчить и объяснять все или избран- ные пользователи вывод видео в топ вк . Радио? Есть два более- наименее адекватных данной музыке станций, но в мо- Отличия от обычных медиа мент появления на радио маркетинговой паузы я практически постоянно переключаюсь на иную волну. Баннеры? Не знаю, как он, а я их терпетьнемогу. Остаются лишь музыкальные блог-сообщества кругом данной темы, на какие мы, видится, подписаны оба. То же наиболее проистекает с огромным количе- ством продуктов и услуг. Более-менее понятная сег- ментация имеется в новейших медиа по возрастам, полу и иным обычным в офлайне категориям - но все-же она не является определяющей. Традиционная модель сегментации никуда не делась. Просто имеется еще и вот эта - и нередко она во- обще единственная.
