Overwatch (blizzard game like HOTS/DOTA meets TF2)

General discussion, shows, and everything else.

I just want the D.Va, Zarya and Soldier skins, even though Soldier's isn't that cool. I don't play Genji, but the skin is great and I wouldn't mind it. I also need Winston's dance. I have like 6,300 credits, so I'll probably be able to buy two skins and a dance before all is said and done.

I've gotten a few event skins but none that I really wanted plus duplicates of those same skins which sucks. Really just want Cruiser d.va, Hanzo, and soldier's.

Managed to somehow land every skin except Lucio's thanks to double XP, hopefully summer games has some good stuff.

This event was weird. I bought like 24 lootboxes a week or so ago and got maybe 30 or so from playing and got 6 event legendaries and like 4 regular legendaries. I also bought a few dancing emotes and got them on lootboxes right after lol, kinda weak.

I just picked this game back up after a looong time off. I will probably just avoid competitive completely because I get so annoyed when I play that shit. I quit right before Sombra was released so I have a lot of catching up to do.

Haven't really been into competitive this season either. The new 6v6 lockout elimination is fun, really forces you to put together a good team and stay together.

Your rank definitely shouldn't be affected if your whole team except you and one other person leave. That seems unfair.

The Roadhog nerf makes me want to cry. I'm also annoyed that Oni Genji and Officer Dva are in regular lootboxes. I suffered through that shitload of HOTS games for nothing.

Hog is such a liability to play now. Loving the Reaper changes though. I was using him more and more this year and the healing buff has made life so much better.

Yeeeeeeeee can't wait. Gameplay vid looks so sick. Definitely a hero that will need to be in close to benefit from the shield generation. Otherwise he's a Mcree or Widow headshot away from death. His charge shot should be good for closing in but I imagine he'll be fairly easy to kill fromd distance and would benefit from a dive companion like Dva or Winston.

So pumped for Doomfist, holy shit. I honestly already knew Terry Crews wouldn't voice him cause he's a super famous actor, they probably would've had to pay him a lot more than the other voice actors they hired. Idk, I wish they had done it but it was probably impractical. (they prob already had the other voice actor lined up anyway)

Can't wait to main him. I love him

I'm actually surprised he came out this soon, i heard a lot of speculation but i just thought they would announce him at Blizzcon

Doomfist is so much fun. After hearing his actual voice I'm kinda glad Terry Crews didn't do it cause Sahr Ngaujah is awesome.

I really hope they include this mode when Doomfist goes live cause it's so much fun. If they brought back All Brawls this would be a great option to have in the rotation imo.

Yeah he reminds me of a fighting game character with all the combos you can do with him. Orisa seems like she's gonna be a good counter which makes sense lore-wise.

Having so much fun with D.Va since I picked this back up. Trying real hard for 15,000 damage blocked one of these days, and I never realized smacking a Pharah out of the air could be so much fun.

Yup, been playing some Orissa lately too and that's a lot of fun. Orisa seems to be more dependent on a good healer but still really fun. Less than 10 matches total with her but I nearly pulled a Reinhardt off the ledge at the end of Kings Row the other day and it got me hooked.

I feel the comp I have the most success lately has been Lucio/Reaper/Winston/Zarya/Ana/Soldier. I'm not one to follow the meta closely or anything but Lucio, Reaper (since update) and Soldier are pretty much must picks.

I just realized how much I love having him on my team all of the sudden.

There’s still nothing more horrible than some idiot calling him ‘Harambe’.

People have finally realized what Winston is capable of. The reduction of his shield cooldown has helped him tons too.

People are also starting to realize that sombra is extremely viable too.

There's also the fact that if you're diamond or up in OW, then you're like in the top 15-20% of the entire player base. Rest of them ain't woke.

Mercy is still whack, imo.

Dive is very popular and Winston is the Dive tank. For the higher levels anyways. If you're low on ladder the meta is just all dps with no healers or tanks.

To play Winston properly you need to have a coordinated team. People who will jump in with you and really do work while you catch people off guard. Playing Winston in solo queue is tough, especially if you're not using your mic.

Winston instructions:

1. Pick Winston
2. Have D.Va matrix you
3. ???
4. Win

Seriously, all you need in diamond or below is Winston, D.va, Tracer, Genji, Ana and Zenyatta and it's an instant win.
