Even with the latest Bastion nerfs, he's still a bitch to deal with. I had an idea last night tho: keep everything the same (since Blizz seems intent on the dumbass ironclad shit) but make it so he can only heal in recon mode. This would force him to disengage to heal (similar to how Roadhog is played), making it so he can't camp and find a new spot to set up sentry, which is how it seems the devs what him to be played.

As for the Ana changes, I liked the character a lot and have been actively trying to get better playing her, and acknowledge that she was pretty over powered...but goddamn Blizzard, why are your changes so heavy-handed?

So they might as well just move Ana over to the defense category because they keep nerfing her healing for no fucking reason. Christ did the idiots at Blizzard even play their own game? Ana needs strong heals because she doesnt fucking have a sustained or aoe heal like the others.

her healing was strong as hell and there was no reason to use any other healer because of it

ana should have never been so strongly buffed early on because how OP she became without anyone really noticing for a while and i dont blame them for not just dumping buffs on sombra like people want because she could have easily become another ana

That's not a bad idea at all. Getting enough damage on Bastion should force him to disengage from the position, but with his healing and a mercy it's just silly. The game is boring when you have to match the team's comp to have an equal chance.

Maybe it's because she never interacts socially with others, but she seems to be really well and thoughtfully poised, socially. All of her end-game poses are absurdly socialized and not awkward at all. They're sexualized and designed to make her appear attractive to outsiders, meaning she knows what's attractive to others, meaning she's the opposite of autistic

If this is real it's actually kind of offensive. As if autistic is just a label, rather than a way a person interprets the world. I'm not triggered but it's just sort of typical for the OW team, which makes the Brazilian black character speak like an American black, because black people are all the same wherever you go anyway

I agree with you about the poses. Since the comic was released (months and months ago) I wrote that her being a dancer doesn't really fit her image. She should be something like a runner, to help explain her athletic appearance. But dancers are basically performers, creating undefined "art", which might baffle autists.

Autism is a spectrum you know. I know plenty of autists that are into art. Typically a very specific art - one guy is completely obsessed with rapping and hiphop. The other only draws videogame characters. Within their preferred art, they know their shit. Outside it, well... they're autistic.

Are they called Sonichu, or something similar? (Seriously tho, I don't really want to get in an argument about this subject, so I won't follow thru. However, I do strongly feel that the more abstract art we have, the less it interests autists. That's why Symmetra being a dancer is such an odd choice. Since you can't "measure dance", how does she strive for perfection in it? What are the patterns she's fond off? Also, you can't really dance to yourself, you need an audience, so how does she manage that, etc.)

Man I had one of those intense moments right before a payload reaches its point when every one is dishing out their abilites and ults and I realized something. It all depends on how much people can jump in the game. I mean there are moment that requires skill but its mostly luck and bunny hopping. I feel so disillusioned

I agree that luck is a big factor - when your random teammates get chosen, that is. After that it's more about skill. And you can't really "bunny hop" in this game (in the sense that you could in Quake) so that doesn't really matter either. People become more predictable/trackable when they jump. Mostly I just find it annoying, especially when a Lucio does it.

A good Luci will never run.
If he switches from speed to healing he maintains his speed as long as he is either hopping or wall riding.
Also, Orisa can move at full speed and shoot if she never shoots while on the ground.

>People become more predictable/trackable when they jump.
Nope. The enemy will miss far more headshots if you're hopping around.
Try playing Symetra and not jumping around when you're microwaving someone.

Or imagining what's under Zenyatta's mask, pic related.


I'd have preferred Orisa have the model of a spider or walking tank or something.
A centaur model just seems such a waste if it's not used to charge, kick, or provide cover for teammates, maybe even making the horse body move independently of the torso.

Also if you're going to make an autistic character you have to have them actually be insane freakazoids who can't communicate properly or form meaningful relationships with normies and hate every waking moment of their pitiful friendless existence. Otherwise actual autists like me are going to call bullshit

Posts like this always make me wonder where the fuck these extreme autists are.

I've met quite a few autists in my time, and they all exhibited autistic behavior. But it was always relatively low-key. They'd have these trigger-phrases that would cause them to act autistic, like one guy being autistic about videogames, and a different guy being autistic about hiphop music. But outside that, they acted normal, videogame guy was a bit introverted unless he was around people he knew very well, but hiphop guy acted completely normal until you said "rap" and he'd sperg out over rare vinyl and the connections between local Phillipino rap beats and this one track by some French beats producer and how it comes down to the samples from some '60s jazz album and the midi keyboard they use blablablabla.

You sound like the kind of guy who doesn't play any good games. Silly graphics? have you ever even played TF2? Or any game during the PS1/PS2 era for that matter?

>Where has the seriousness in games gone?
The seriousness is in the competitive gameplay, not the visuals. If you want Serious visual graphics then maybe you should go play Dark Souls, or Armored Core. (I'm not putting down these games when I say this, I'm genuinely suggesting you go play them because they're good games that have the criteria you're asking for.)

They chose the visual style precisely because they felt there were already too many "serious" shooters out there, depicting WW2, modern tacticool, apocalyptic wastelands, generic scifi, etc...

Never have I heard that they ran out of money? But yeah, "project Titan" got scrapped, and from that, something new was born, namely Overwatch. It seems they shared the setting ("a positive near-future") and some mechanics ("shooting") but I doubt it goes much further than that. For example they have said that the Junkers were a new addition to Overwatch, which sounds odd, because one would imagine that for an MMO you'd need several factions and groups to exist. And yet, they didn't exist in Titan, apparently.

Dang, that's yuge. I approve. Effective radius being so reduced, along with healing buffed, will mean people will have to play him much more actively. And those boops are going to get truly nasty.

I don't approve. The "murderball" meta is stale as fuck and the fact that Blizz balances OW almost exclusively for it is infuriating. I also feel like that Ult nerf is completely uncalled for and downright asinine. That ult is going to be so devalued when defending on wide-open points like Dorado's Point B due to how spread-out those team fights can get.

It just means Lucio will have to be more active, and it raises the skill ceiling a bit. In order to make the ult effective, he'll need to wallride and jump off of walls to reach teammates who are in trouble. At present he's sort of a character that just tries to stay vaguely in the center of the team and try not to get sniped, while booping and trying to inflict some damage here and there. As a casual Lucio player I'm really looking forward to the changes.

The thing is though, there are already 3 different focus-healers including one who can endlessly heal more per second with the ability to fly directly to her target with the push of a button and then another one who can do more burst healing from across the fucking map with a sniper rifle. The existence of Mercy and Ana immediately devalues these "Buffs" to Lucio because it's coming at a cost to the skillset that sets him apart and makes him uniquely useful. Lucio definitely needed a bit of tweaking but I think this reworking is incredibly shortsighted. By attempting to make his healing "more engaging", he's essentially been put into a position where the other healer's are stepping on his toes enough to make him redundant as a focus-healer and because his AoE abilities have been nerfed so hard to the point where Soldier 76 is almost as effective as an AoE healer, he's pretty much only going to be useful in Murderball comps.

I've only played 150 hours of random characters and i honestly feel like ive experienced everything the game has to offer. How could someone play as only Naruto for 420 hours is beyond me.
Team fortress had a lot to offer. CS:go does get boring after a while but you always come back to try your luck and skill on other players again. Overwatch on the other hand is just stale, with a severe balance problem. Its especially more apparent when they pretty much abandoned the characters that have unique playstyles like Junkrat and D.va and Mei since they cant rework their ult to function with the rest of the characters after all their buffs.
I dont care though. I expected some characters would be stronger than others before the release of the game but what they've done to it was just stupid.

Everyone is comparing this to Michael Richards.

Michael Richards actually called a guy a jolly african-american, which immediately makes it worse than this tirade of surreal racist imagery.

BTW, "jolly african-american, jolly african-american jolly african-american" is a phrase I have on reserve for when I am performing stand-up comedy, but the house is on fire and everyone would rather stare into their phones as the flames take them than hear anything I say. Which is more or less the state of Michael Richards' charisma at this point.

Even then I think in this modern day of monetized recreational outrage and heightened social consciousness, the world would just condemn Michael Richards for not silently accepting the flames and his rightful place as a pile of ash. A pile of ash that social media will still forever label as racist.

Yeah but everyone has a whole lot of temporary mental issues from lack of sleep or glucose or whatever to various extents.

Anyway this is why I say cunt. As much as there are feminists all over the world ready to crucify me for such talk, I find it equivalent to dick but ever so much more auditorily impactful and satisfying and I have a whole country full of jolly Australians and a large demographic of Brits who wouldn't take it seriously.

Nothing satisfies like calling your shitlord Raid leader rando from raid finder for openly trying to exploit you in the voice chat he thinks you never joined.

>"Wait, you're gonna kick me after the trash because you think I'm going to pull shit and cause havok in your raid because you're projecting your own cuntiness on literally everyone you encounter?"
>"I don't really give a shit, I'm out but you need to stop being a cunt, cunt."
>Kicked from discord

Anyway if I had an actual contract for gaming you can bet your ass I would chill out and start treating it at least halfway like a job.

I get pretty salty in Heroes of the Storm but the bulk of what I actually say is "GJ" "care" and basic strategy stuff. I get that it comes off bitchy but it's just because everyone is so defensive. When people proceed to insult me over it and give up on the game I get legit bitchy but there's no reason to straight up insult someone who isn't actively trying to throw your ranked game.

Considering buying this game. I personally play Paladins quite a bit with friends and I like it. If anyone's played both, how does OW compare? I personally like how Paladins has multiple powers and effect cards that you have to use thoughtfully but the matchmaking is terrible since you always either get matched against total retards or a dream team that will totally ream you. I have a few people I can play OW with, so party queue is an option.

In my opinion, Overwatch is the weakest of the four team class-based games I've played (TF2, OW, Battleborn, and Paladins) but has a lot of polish to it. There's not many maps, there's not many game modes, and there's not really a lot of room to mess around in it by trying different strategies because when one side is getting dominated, the whole game just slows down to a screeching halt and becomes an absolute slog.

There's no cards/loadouts, no weapons, nothing to shake it up; just pricey skins and sprays that you really wont pay attention to after a while. The maps are mostly 2-3 lanes with a chokepoint that has an arch over it. You'll still get idiots and great teams just like Paladins, even in competitive mode. It's really just the Blizzard model of having a lot of polish and looking pretty rather than having depth to it. The vibrant, somewhat unique yet mostly generic archetyped characters and maps give it a little more depth but the gameplay still becomes routine after a while and keeps it so tightly-packed together that variety is more punished than rewarded.

Genji

Removed the attack cooldown from Genji’s wall climbing ability, allowing him to engage with enemies immediately after completing a climb
Developer Comments: This is a quality of life change to make wall climbing feel better.

Hanzo

Removed the attack cooldown from Hanzo’s wall climbing ability, allowing him to engage with enemies immediately after completing a climb
Storm Bow
Increased charge speed by 10%
Charged arrows now maintain their charge after climbing a wall, provided the button is continuously held
Developer Comments: Decreasing Hanzo’s draw time gives him more overall DPS, while also letting him fully charge an arrow and more quickly return to full movement speed when needed. And, like the change to Genji’s wall climbing, this is a quality of life change that will make climbing feel better.

Orisa

Fusion Driver
Damage reduced by 15%
Protective Barrier
Cooldown reduced from 12 seconds to 8 seconds
Developer Comments: To help Orisa maintain the front line for her team, we’re reducing the cooldown of her Protective Barrier. This change also helps her reposition the barrier more easily when needed. To compensate for this new defensive strength, we're reducing her Fusion Driver's damage, as it felt too high.

Reaper

Wraith Form
Ammo is now entirely refilled when Wraith Form is used
Developer Comments: Wraith Form is typically used as an escape ability after firing. This change gives Reaper a fighting chance if an enemy chases him down as he uses it.

Reinhardt

Earthshatter
Effective height has been lowered from 3 meters to 2 meters
The height threshold of objects that Earthshatter can "climb" has been lowered from 3 meters to 2 meters, making Earthshatter less likely to climb tall objects as it "crawls" along the ground.
Developer Comments: Earthshatter tended to climb unexpectedly high, frequently hitting targets that were significantly above the ground. These changes help the ability stay more grounded.

Soldier: 76

Heavy Pulse Rifle
Bullet damage decreased from 20 to 19
Developer Comments: Soldier:76 is in a much better place lately, but his damage output was making him a must pick, compared to similar roles.

So are they ever going to even try to fix Widowmaker?
>Cooldown on hook and venom mine is unacceptably long
>Has anyone even ever died from a venom mine?
>The whole point of the Venom mine is to alert you to people sneaking up on you
>Unfortunately a D.Va, Winston, Pharah, Lucio, Genji, Hanzo, Junkrat or Sombra can sneak up on you from pretty much any direction
>Once she's in position, she's basically a sitting duck for a quarter minute
>If she has to immediately abandon her position, the time it requires to setup somewhere else is absurdly high. If she's out of position, it's a defacto death+respawn due to how much time it requires to get back into a viable position.
>Too easy for D.Va, Winston, Genji, Hanzo, Soldier, Lucio, Pharah, Mercy, Mei, Junkrat, Sombra, and Tracer to force her out of position
>Zero ability to quickly position and advantageously reposition as a payload moves through a map so she can continuously cover it.
>Ray-Trace completely betrays her positioning so everyone immediately knows where she's at the moment she fires a single charged shot.
>A Winston can jump 1000 times in the amount of time her hook requires to cooldown so even she uses it to escape when a highly mobile hero directly engages her, it's trivial to chase her down
>Woefully inadequate at peak battles against Hanzo, McCree, Soldier, and Ana
>Her damage was nerfed because she could one-shot Zenyatta but since his health was buffed, her damage won't be restored
>Ult is trash. Hanzo's secondary ability and the high-quality sound imaging this game has seriously devalues the benefits of her ult
>Her ult has zero impact whatsoever in a team skirmish, which is where games are won and lost
>Maps are deliberately designed to prevent her from having any sort of advantage by limiting lines of sight. Attacking the first point on Gibraltar is pretty much the only place where she has any sort of advantage.

The best thing IMO would be to drop her hook cooldown to like, 4 seconds so her mobility isn't completely abysmal. Her skill set is pretty much geared toward getting into position, taking a couple of shots and repositioning before she can be chased down but this is pretty much impossible with her hooks current cooldown. As it is, she's a sitting duck more often than not and chasing her down is a trivial affair. By increasing her mobility, it plays into her strengths by letting her engage more aggressively with the other team and would make chasing her down more difficult to the point where it could viably divert the other team's resources long enough to capitalize on their distraction. Her venom mine also needs to be completely reworked because it's so useless. Maybe make it more of a panic ability where she can release a poison cloud instead of a mine when attacked so one-on-one fights are less one-sided against non-tank enemies.

So instead of playing dva as a character that punishes over confident players we got a bullet sponge now. This game was so much on release. Dva was hell alot of fun. Widowmaker was wrecking shit. Mcree could take on tanks all by himself. Zenyatta was dark orb was terrifying. Genji double jumped off wall climb. Characters were actually fun to play now its all mainstreamed to esports like casuals player dont even matter.

Once every couple of days. It's pretty fun if you don't take it seriously. It's not meant to be competitive IMO.

Play some casual, but don't just play Hanjo, etc. Actually try for a somewhat balanced team, then have fun. Your hidden MMR will rise (yes, casual has MMR, because they obviously still need to be able to make good matches). Then you'll get matched with better casual players, who will play the game well but not really care if they lose because someone won't go healer or whatever.

Comp is cancer. Only reason I play comp is to go Torb (especially on attack) and make everyone rage at me. Then we usually win, and they quiet down. Torb is a headshot machine, sentry is definitely the secondary concern.

came out a week ago and it's not bad

you destroy enemy towers, collect orbs, or kill people to fill up your gauge in which your team's giant monster called a guardian attacks the other one and puts it in a vulnerable state, then you rush the enemy guardian while it's pinned and put damage on it to wound it; it goes back and forth until someones guardian is finally taken out

it has heroes that play similarly to characters from both paladins and overwatch but still has unique gameplay and graphics that set it apart from those two

Pretty much this. I've been playing steadily since launch but it's really just my drunk/stoned go-to. And even then, I mostly just do arcade and QP sometimes. I have a group of friends that don't live in the same city as me, and I play with them almost weekly. I've talked with them about setting up a comp team, but I think it's more fun for all of us to just get stoned and fuck around.

Doomfist is rad tho. I love the idea of shoving a fighting character into an fps. I'm having fun learning him.

Basically, OW is a fun diversion if you never take it seriously.

>Mercy Can fly now

Mercy was in kind of a strange place. Your ability to heal is almost dependent on how cohesive your team played and guardian was always most useful when you have a pharah and a sniper in your team. Now you can go on your own and how well you play is all up to the individual's skill. Mercy's resurrect was also overpowered, watching the enemy team put so much effort in taking down your team only just to swoop in and cancel everything their hard work simply by pressing Q was just trollish as fuck. I really enjoyed that part but i admit im glad its gone.
Youre gonna see alot of Battle mercy's fucking shit up now which goes against the character's core value which bothers me a lot. Playing a pacifist in a battlefield was very interesting to me at least but it kinda fucked up the game badly.

Overall, i think those are some good changes. Yeah people will have to relearn how to play her and some might not like the new style of playing but it had to be done.

If mercy resurrects someone, hits her ult, she can then res another two people over the course of her ult. So, three person res, then thirty seconds after that you can res another person, your ult is probably pretty high charge by then, bim bam, more resurrecting. Sure, you probably won't be able to turn the tide of battle as easily, but you'll be much more of an annoying fuck especially if you continually bring back your tanks. Instead of being a one trick pony she is a lot more evened out as a character.

D.Va on the other hand is getting her defense matrix fucked over without extending her booster. So she'll get hammered a lot harder without any increase in her mobility. The rockets might help you frustrate folks, but she is going to be a lot less "defend folks and harass" and more "harass and try not to die, fuck your pals."

But all of this is coming from a dude who loves D.Va and very rarely plays mercy soooo.

Don't know how to feel about mercy now. I'm glad it doesn't feel like being a babysitter anymore and she's a more fun active hero. But the reason most people play Mercy in the first place is because some players suck at OW and rather play a hero that requires no shooting because she's easy.

Playing mercy (well) is far from easy. You need good game sense to be a healer and worst of all, reliable tanks and DPS to protect you when the enemy tries to assassinate you.

Mercy's changes seem OK, but they kinda put an edge on mercy that doesn't suit her character. At least it makes the meta more interesting.

>But the reason most people play Mercy in the first place is because some players suck at OW and rather play a hero that requires no shooting because she's easy.
you can still play her like that but but her new ult and rez on cooldown is a thing that adds more depth to the character and widens the very narrow mercy skill gap
everyone is posting how good battle mercy is in the hands of top players but average mercys can still do fine since she can heal and damage boost the whole team from the other side of the map while flying around (because no one is good at killing flying targets without an ult) since her beam gets a massive range boost and chains targets

only thing i dont like about the new mercy ult is that i wish they gave the flying around + unlimited ammo parts and dva's new missiles to pharah instead

First off, nice trips.

Secondly, have had a solid week of matches where shitters absolutely fucking refuse to do anything besides rush and dps, while ignoring any other facet of the match.

There honestly needs to be a ruleset when joining a match that forces a healer on a team.

I just wish there was a special queue for people who pick a sniper when there's already a sniper on the team. And an Ana. And we're on attack. And there's no tank.

Put them in the Sniper Main Queue and never let them back out of it.

I've started playing comp for the first time this season, having climbed to two wins away from masters at the height of last season (though I was overranked to the point where I seemed like the lowest-skilled guy on most teams at that point).

It placed me in low gold. Which isn't terrible, rank doesn't matter beyond who it allows me to play with, and I knew some guys who somehow got stuck in Bronze and everyone they knew was too high-ranked to play with them.
Climbing would be fun, right?

Holy fuck, I found the toxic community I've been hearing so much about, it's silver-ranked comp.
Everyone there is either:
a. unable to do key aspects of their role, DPS who can't DPS, tanks who can't tank, healers who don't move to damaged teamates
b. so toxic they actually make their team less effective
c. a smurf account of someone in masters/grandmasters
d. someone who is playing a hero that can't carry

I lost like 75% of the rounds I played with my bronze buddy, climbing out of silver as a tank or support must be impossible.
I did manage to get 82 elims as Zarya in one game through.

Honestly, the shitshow that is the community is why I play Mystery Heroes most of the time. Every single match of Quickplay I do ends up with no-one playing the healer. I play a lot of Ana, so I usually don't mind, but I also want to play the other characters occasionally. And yes, that also includes fucking Genji and Widowmaker, because they're part of the fucking game, and I'd like to learn one day. So after putting in my healer tax, I still get this crap with "pick someone else than Genji". Yeah, I usually do. Just not now. Go play comp. The number of matches I've come into where I'm the first to select my character, and then STILL end up switching to a healer because none of the other useless cunts want to has been too damn high. And you think I feel like healslutting for a team that has just communicated to not give a fuck for the role of healer? No, I don't. I perfectly understand the people who ditch the match when no-one plays healer. Except they're cunts who could also have selected a healer, like I do all the fucking time.

And it's not even that they're not fun to play. They're just not fun to play ALL THE TIME. I paid real money for this game, and I didn't do it just so I could be the human toilet for terrible players.

Thankfully, I have enough friends to play this with.

I've had pretty good experience with QP's MM.

According to a guy who keeps a spreadsheet on it, MM rates you by comparing your stats for a specific hero to everyone else with that hero of similar rating for the last several games.

This would explain why some people say QP is 99% toxic assholes or people who refuse to help the team, while I find 9/10 games everyone has a mic, there's at least 1 healer, etc.

I complained about the community in this thread, but I haven't seen anything like they describe. Blizzard really wants to have their cake and eat it, too. Competitive, team-based games like Overwatch will always have a lot of shitters in the community, because this type of gameplay draws competitive people. The sort of people who often can't admit that they're in the wrong. The guy I know who's the most invested in achieving ranks and shit in games is also the guy who rages the most and who pushes the blame around.

Frankly, playing something like comp on your own, without grouping up with mates, is always going to lead to a shitty experience. Competitive play in a heavily team-based game like this isn't intended for solo players. It seems to me they're trying to solve a problem that only exists on the periphery of the community in the first place.

Then again, the entire post seems like virtue signalling to me. Blizzard isn't committed to something like this. They're committed to the market. This sounds good for a portion of the market, so this is what they say. But in reality, the #1 concern behind fixing the shitty community is that it makes people leave the game. If this were Bioware, I'd take it at face value. But Blizzard? Nah.

Also, in the interest of inclusiveness, the game is still missing a fat chick, a traditionally handsome man, a trap, a hipster, and some sort of fish person. Get on it, Blizzard.

It's not just tiny super indie stuff.

AAA is mostly shit, the biggest games 15 years ago were great but even just below AAA there's a lot of great games. These games probably have equivalent budgets hype and ethics to the BIG HITS 15 years ago, it's just that this new super market has emerged and overshadowed it. Plenty of games on 7 even (low) 8 figures budgets that are great. It's just the very top of the market is over hyped rubbish.

Unfortunately though a lot of the best games and developers don't get funded by studios. And so that means the minefield of kickstarters. For every Larian or Obsidian there's 5 studios who won't deliver.

I know a few people like this. One of my friends loves horror but is too jumpy to play the games. She can watch slasher films all day so she watches the games. She also does do other things while watching letsplay stuff.

However I feel that the people we know are not representative. As posters on this board we're adults or at least legally adults and so most of us live or know people living adult lives.

But a lot of letplayers are driven by views from teenagers and kids. Maybe they can't afford all the games though.

I believe letsplay was originally more of a way of documenting archaic games which weren't coming back before they became even harder to find. Because people will nerd about anything and "historic" video games fits in "anything" I guess.

I do this too, usually when I'm playing online games or games I've already played
Been watching game grumps lately if you can call it watching, really I treat it more like a podcast and background noise
Makes me feel less alone

Watching esports is stupid too. Its not like actual sports, almost anybody can get good at games provided they have two hands. Its the reason my friend with cerebral palsey loves video games, he can't ever be decent at soccer. But he can kick some ass in fifa. Idk, maybe its because I've never entered a tournament that I don't get esports. I also didn't like watching other people play games in real life, especially ones I don't have, it just makes me want to get those games and experience them myself. I think it is kids that make those stupid streamers so popular, a lot of my younger relatives watch the stupidest shit on YouTube and they love Pewdiepie and those retarted ass reaction videos. I really don't get having letsplays on as background noise while doing stuff, but I have to have Netflix on while playing my 3ds so different strokes for different folks. And yea I've known a couple girls (not trying to be sexist) that like watching letsplays because they're just terrible at games. The type of people that don't know where to go, get bored and give up. And then they call themselves gamers like its something to be proud of because they play Pokemon Go and Call of Duty.

Dude I can’t stand esports or like twitch streams, but then again I guess these things aren’t for people like us. I hate the commentary, I hate their brands of humor, I hate most of the games that are most popular simply because they were fun for a little while yet these esports/twitchers play these games endlessly for months/years, which seems insanely boring and repetitive, I really just can’t stand nerd culture at all even though I’m stuck dealing with it since I’m a regular gamer. Like fuck Pewdiepie and DisRespect and all those fuckin dweebs with their immature humor that kids seem to love, especially their elitist bullshit. I swear half the nerds I know have this chip on their shoulder, they think they’re so cool even though they’re the opposite of charismatic and open minded.

But, you know, good for them. They’re making money playing video games. I wish I was making money from video games, but I’d never commit to them how these people do, because it’s always been about fun for me.

I dunno about this. I'm not GREAT at any games but I've played enough games with large userbases to know a lot of people suck and not many are actually amazing. For any sport if you're able bodied you can get very good with enough practice. There's a blind guy at work, I bet he'll never be good at fifa.

Now some of this is attitude but it's the same with any real sport too. You have to be big enough to learn and improve, dedicated enough to practice and learn from the right people and then yes, not be crippled. And that will get you to the top 1% in sport too. In my country there's maybe 2000 professional footballers who make a good living off it. Hundreds of thousands of people play sunday league or work leagues or inter company work leagues or whatever and millions practice a kickaround from time to time. Now the thing is that at that level you don't need talent. As long as your body works okay, simply being naturally taller and faster is an advantage but the difference between the guy who practices once a week with one of his teams, plays 2-3 times a week, runs on off nights and someone who just turns up for his weekly match is the difference between the league's best player who runs circles around half the league and someone who just fills space. Video games are like that too. If you do not have a (for the game) crippling disability, a real sport or an esport is about dedication and a good attitude and that will carry you to the tier below the best, where you can outplay almost anyone. But there's STILL people a mile above you. Getting good isn't the same as being professional.

When you get to the top though everyone trains hard and eats well and is peak fitness in soccer. And in video games everyone whos good doesn't have impaired reactions, plays a lot, knows the meta or whatever. The difference between top football players is talent, it's also presence of mind, the best footballers in the world are clever too. Maybe they can't do complex calculus but they can read the opponents, play to their weaknesses, they can fake out defenders or predict passes and be there (whether it's their team or the other one) to receive. They can have the goalie dive the wrong way or the striker curve the ball into their hands. But it's the same with a lot of video games. Everyone at that level knows the plays and can push the combos out reliably and that's the dedication and they aren't blind, don't have impaired reactions or whatever. What separates the players is exceptional talent at the end of the day. With soccer players it's a mix of mind and matter with gamers it's purely mind but it's there. If everyone can do those combos and plays the builds and styles which give them a chance against any opponent out there (and an advantage against most), then the games get decided by strategy and headology. Do you read your opponent and counter their strategy before they finish executing it? do you look at what their best plays are and counter them? Or.... do they realise you'll do that? It becomes layer and layers of psychology. Some games become this at lower levels, it's just there's still the element of "even if I out headgame them will I fuck the execution up" so it's less obvious because it's masked by screw ups. This isn't something you can practice.

I have a friend who plays a lot and he's good at a lot of games. He will stomp almost anyone at some of his games. He's very good. But he'll never be a pro, he'll never be that good. Ever. He's not got it in him. Most people cannot be better than him but there's still people way above him. Just because you can beat most of the population that doesn't mean you're an esports pro. You're probably someone they test new strategies or practice on when anyone better isn't available to challenge them.

Though I've spent more time in the middle as a casual maybe medium player sometimes, watching how badly a lot of people suck at a game. Oh man do they suck. If you think anyone can be good at video games you've not played WOW or Pub TF2.

Flesh and blood sports are more impressive though because that's happening for real. It's a better spectacle than guiding an avatar to generate light images.

Id rather watch soccer than watch somebody play FIFA though. Watching somebody who's really good at marvel vs. Capcom just isn't fun for me, but like the other guy said these pros and streamers are getting paid for their hobby. Its just, you know when you go to the side of the whats happening section on ps4? There's always some chick streaming gta or destiny, and you know shes not popular because shes good. What country are you from by the way man?

Considering how long TF2, Dota and Counter-Strike have been going, this isn't really all that surprising.

And yeah, those games didn't also have the advantage of a mountain of SFM porn providing free advertising.

I'm from the UK.

Bear in mind when you watch soccer you're not watching your friend playing, you're watching the best. Or maybe you do enjoy sunday league and watching it. There is an atmosphere there, one which I imagine the events have. but then people watch football at home, never little games, just the best. Sat with a beer and snacks and friends and watch the best of the best. There's a lot of things the video gaming industry doesn't have. Also a lot of popular esports are not necessarily the best games.

Marvel and Capcom is a great spectator sport but I've never watched anyone who was any good. Just drunks yelling with joy because LOTS OF DOGS.

To be honest though I only watch USA and Mexicos games. And I watch them in Spanish, for some reason the British announcers make the game boring as fuck.

The main benefit of watching crappy leagues is that they're so crappy that you can learn tactics and moves that you yourself you implement. That makes them extremely useful.

I guess the analogy here would be your average-at-games Let's Players.

I dunno hon people can anyone keep up with watching Overwatch League games. It’s like watching Quake III Arena to me. Then again I think I’m used to slower paced shooters like Halo since I remember when USA aired MLG Pro Circuit for Halo 2, it was easy to watch and understand.

Hopefully this is the only time anyone will refer to Overwatch and Quake 3 in a positive light.

To me, it's more like call of duty, only not depressingly gray or brown.

Sombra should've had an overpowered one hit kill skill while she's invincible like the Spy in TF2. I know she's useful at higher level play, but all anyone does with her at my skill level is fuck with health packs and run around doing fuck all.

You must be playing with some shitty sombras she's pretty good for flanking/disrupting and her ult used at the right time can completely turn a match around

Did you guys hear that they're removing Hanzo's scatter arrow? Dunno how I feel about it, I don't play him all that much but he's fun every now and then. Apparently instead he's going to have some kind of quick fire shot
