Teabagging is just another way to get your goat

Plus honestly it's kinda silly looking and leaves the teabagger more vulnerable, and anyone can do it and move on at a moments notice, unlike taunt animations that anchor you to a spot while they play out

Well I officially went to the dark side. Since Mei is so strong in this season's meta, I ended up practicing up as her and just saved my teams ass in a competitive game by switching to her and wrecking the other team's shit.

She used to be my least played hero of them all just because off all the creepy weebs obsessing over their waifu but she's like, pretty powerful.

I'm just really starting to get into comp a little bit.

What are some absolute basics to everyone should know?

>Use a mic
People rarely use a fucking mic in both quickplay and comp, but it gives your team a huge advantage. Just calling out where some dangerous enemies are and coordinating movements and ults is infinitely better than typing it all in chat.

>Stay alive
Sounds simple, but it's really easy to get caught up in a 1v1 fight, when it's often better in the long run to run away, regen and then come back. You should almost never die as DVA because she's so goddamn good at escaping with her boosts and she gets a second chance.

>Stick together
Another common sense one, but it's really easy to get separated when you're not communicating with your team or if you're on fire and feel like you can kill the entire enemy team. Don't. Stick together, push together, have a buddy that you're looking out for.

>Don't just main one character
There's a dickload of characters, so you're bound to find at least 3 that you're not completely terrible with. So switch around between those to fit the balance of the team.

Who else got more?

If you are playing Lucio and everyone is dead, do back to the spawn and speed boost to taxi them back to the payload/point. Unless you want to die and leave your team healer-less when they spawn without you.

Been on a see-saw of wins and losses balancing between 2600-2700 in games. I've had some team mates who were generally incompetent or just disorganized (pic related, 4 golds as Lucio in 2700 range) or ones who saved their ultimates just for the sake of getting the POTG - had a Soldier 76 hold his ult when Zarya and I have set up his ultimate for him.

Granted, I do still have the issue of splitting off from a group or just being cut off from my group due to me trying to take out a guy that my team isn't aiming for as a Lucio main (not usually by choice) but there are some people who seem to play comp for just quicker matchmaking than quick play rather than being good at it.

I've had great team mates who coordinate together and others who refused to change despite being told (a guy went from offensive Bastion to Widowmaker to Tracer on a map that has a huge choke point)

The one thing I've been noticing recently is just how much bullshit Roadhog's hook has been giving me. Pulled through walls, pulled through Roadhog himself and ending up underneath him, just general hitbox shenanigans. I can at least blast back a charging Reinhardt for a bit of breathing room or blast him away from a team mate, but it's a crapshoot on whether or not I'll be able to blast a Roadhog away from me in time.

Just got bumped down to the upper 2500s now. It's around this time, 30 games or so in, that I'm just tired of the season. Same thing happened in Season 1.

Bad team mates, people who only annoyingly use their microphone through an accidental push to talk or say "hi" at the beginning of the game and stay silent, people refusing to switch, KOREANS IN GENERAL, and other complaints that people have already made.

Not only that, but I'm just tired of being a support at this point. I've spent 9 of the 12 hours in Season 2 as Lucio. I'll probably take another break from this game until next season because it just relies too heavily on team mates who may have gotten lucky in their wins/losses instead of playing with people who are on my actual skill level.

Yeah, his hook is all sorts of whacky. Blizz even tried to fix it so that when he reels it in, the hooked person goes to the same place every time but after that "patch" it seems even worse and if you hook someone too close to you, they'll actually get moved about a meter backwards to a random spot adjacent to Roadhog instead of front and center like they should.

I know it seems like bullshit when you get hooked through a wall but those instances are rare for a Roadhog player when his hook frequently passes through players, hits an obstruction in the fore despite aiming above it, and when it finally hooks someone, the physics drop the enemy somewhere inconvenient so you can't even make use of the combo.

Thats nothing. Most of us got at least 40 hours invested in the game by now. You're kind of late to the party but just keep trying different characters just to know what they can do so you can predict other players easily when you're playing against them.

Honestly I find mercy kind of hard to play with. Everybody is gunning for you and you gotta learn how to stay away from them while still healing your teammates. Lucio is a better option if you Wana play support dont Wana do too much

I don't even like the game very much yet I've got like 80 hours logged.
It's really just because a bunch of my friends play and want me to play with them, because somehow I'm one of the best Reinhardts around. There's nothing quite like tanking an objective until the enemy team gets close enough to start a slug-fest. That being said, I hate Ana and I wish less players thought she was a good combo with Reinhardt. Like, I get that her boost is dope but like the entire enemy team just runs away, where as Mercy could res us all in a pinch. Also, Bastion. He's ranked the worst in the game but when he's combo'd with a good Reinhardt he's easily the deadliest character in the game.

And then there's this insanely hot chick that always comes over to my house and then jumps on Overwatch and literally slays everybody with Reaper. With her help, we reached competitive rank 62 by the end of Season 1. Her bad matches are like 40 eliminations and her good ones are like 70. This bitch is just like ultimate gamer material. She's always going on about her Gladiator status in WoW, whatever that means.

Gave this a go over the weekend on PS4 and really disliked it. Felt the same way when I played the open beta. Maybe it's just because aiming on consoles is a little sluggish anyway, but I couldn't get on with it at all. The character movement speeds are so Fucking slow, the whole feel of the game is just kinda rubbish...

Maybe it's just an issue I have with blizzard games. It feels like youre wrapped in cotton wool or a cloud or some shit at all times, like the game is scared to give you full control incase you immediately shit your pants. Though I do like HotS the same can be said about that compared to LoL, or Diablo compared to Path of Exile. For me at least the sacrifices made on the altar of accessibility don't pay off well enough in the final game.

I'm sure on PC with a team of people who know what they're doing and are working together this is some of the most fun shit going, but I'd honestly rather played DooM multiplayer.

Maybe I'll legitimately get bumped down to the lowest rank at this rate. Had to chase down Mercy as a Lucio because no one else on my team was doing it for the most part. Didn't see three of my team mates the entire game because they weren't on the payload and were too busy searching for (and failing) the teleporter.

I do wish the "avoid this player" feature still existed if not exclusively just for competitive mode. I don't enjoy playing games with inconsistent Koreans and the various other people who bog down competitive. This Season was pretty good at the start with balanced, fair games but it has taken a nosedive in match quality for me again.

The elo system in this game is fucking retarded. I just lost 20 points because my team lost. I got gold damage and gold elims in round 1, and in the next two rounds I got gold healing as lucio and kept my gold dam and gold elims.

So basically I did more in one round as DPS as all the other people did in 3, and I healed the team more than the other dedicated healers, and I lose 20 points. Makes sense.

Man Hanzo's arrows are ridiculously big and do a great deal of damage. Like I understand If they fix Roadhog's hook hitbox he practically has nothing as a tank, he'd just be an oversized Soldier76 who can only heal himself but Hanzo's arrow really do need to get fixed.

It did that before too, at least in QP.

But basically, if there are Koreans playing on the Americas server, they'll get matched with you. Mostly they stick to the Asia server though, because it has a better ping (but they should still be able to get around 100ms). There are definitely more games on the Americas server as well.

What are you talking about? Widowmaker is quite within reason the worst Hero in the current meta.

>Hanzo has higher mobility thanks to is wall climb. The 15 second cooldown on Widow's grapple is asinine. A pharah, D.Va, and Winston can cover 3 times the ground in the same amount of time so her grapple does jack shit to save her from her hardest counters.
>You don't have to be precise with Hanzo's aiming, just shoot in the general direction and get a headshot
>Your shift Sonic Arrow is more useful for the rest of your team for tracking the enemies due to the cooldown compared to how long it takes for Widow's ult to charge. Hanzo ability to spam this seriously devalues Widow's ult
>It's really easy to gib a bunch of squishies with Scatter arrow and if someone like reaper drops in on you, hit the ground with a scatter arrow and it more than likely will kill them. No aiming and no skill required
>He has a higher rate of fire and can fire two fully-charged arrows in the same time it takes Widow to fire one fully charged shot
>Never even has to reload
>His body-shot damage is higher than Widow's
>He doesn't suffer from slow scope-in animations
>He has twice the movement speed while drawing his bow as opposed to a scoped-in Widow
>He doesn't suffer from the FoV penalty that scoped-in Widow does. Combine this with her slow movement speed and she's complete garbage when it comes to popping around corners. Both Hanzo and McCree have too good of an advantage in this situation and in a Sniper battle between two Widows, everyone knows you should stand your ground because the Widow that takes cover first is the one that always loses.
>If you use Hanzo's ult strategically with another control ult like Zarya's or Mei's, it's absolutely devestating. You can also use his ult to zone and control areas and drive enemies off an objective as well as use it through walls.
>Arguably has the coolest skin in the game

Right now, Hanzo is actually viable in the meta but Widow should pretty much never be used competitively. If you're not consistently getting headshot after headshot with a minimum accuracy of 75%, you're dragging down your team. Her skill ceiling just be useful is too high and even on the pro level, she's too inconsistent to the point where most players would rather just use a different hero like McCree for their long distance hitscan. Even Ana is a better sniper due to her rapid fire and and quick-scoping abilities with none of that charge-up bullshit. Furthermore, her cooldowns are bewilderingly slow compared to the rest of the cast. She's basically the long-range version of Bastion where everyone with more than 5 hours of playtime should know how to counter her. Unfortunately for Widow, She got nerfed when all the noobs whined and cried because they kept running in a straight line towards her.

Widow and Hanzo could both use a small buff, but theyre both viable in my opinion.

I think if you buff them too much they can potentially ruin the game though.

I think if they gave Widow like 30 more HP, people would use her and realize shes still hood. Just like the small Mei buff put her in the meta.

With her current kit, she's only viable in very specific niche situations on one or two maps and even then, it's only worth it if you have the accuracy to make it work. You also need an uncoordinated enemy team, plus the right team comp backing you up so you can snipe unmolested. The amount of stars that need to align for her to be viable are ridiculous. Overwatch, with its current balance, is geared towards fast-paced, medium to short-range brawls and Widowmaker doesn't fit in at all.

This vid goes into good detail of how badly oriented in this game Widowmaker is.

hanzo is fine tbh
he got his logs back and his arrows travel faster

widowmaker could probably get her bodyshot damage back since a big reason it was nerfed was that it oneshot zenyatta and made him useless but now he has 200hp and it isnt an issue anymore

I hate how everybody shits on Bastion.
Bastion may be ranked the worst character in the game, but I, myself, a Reinhardt player, rank Bastion as one of the absolute best. The game is about teamwork, not lone-wolf killing (unless you're a badass assault class player) and Reinhardt and Bastion have epic teamwork capability. When Bastion gets play of the game behind my shield, that's both of us getting play of the game right there.

Oh my god, I just had to leave my first game. The team was Lucio (me), A zen, Roadhog, Reaper, Junkrat, and a Mei on defense. The Four DPS teammates were bitching on voice channel about how the comp sucks and someone should switch but refusing to switch themselves. We were getting wrecked by a pharah (we had absolutely nothing to deal with her) So I switched off Lucio to go Soldier (we still had a zen so we had healing). I was actually doing a decent job but then one of the guys starts telling me to switch to McCree when I die but I tell him I suck as mccree and if I'm the one playing hitscan, It has to be soldier. Then the first time I get killed as Soldier, he chimes up again that I'm doing jack shit as soldier and even if I suck as McCree, I'd do more as McCree than I'm doing now as Soldier. This guy is playing as a fucking reaper on Defense, doing a shit job of busting the other team's tanks, and bitching at me about how I'm dealing with a problem that's wrecking our team that no one else is willing to address. Of course I don't want to be playing as soldier, I'd rather go back to healing but my 5 other teammates refuse to adjust what they're doing despite having strong opinions on what everyone else should be doing. And of course, because I was the only one who's willing to switch off, that elected me as the focal point for everyone's attention so I have four different people bitching at me to switch my hero with two guys telling me to go McCree, another one to go back to healer, and the last guy just generically bitching at me for sucking.

That game was unwinable. That team had zero cohesion and was actively fighting each other. I'm not going to stick around for 20 minutes playing this losing match while listening to douchebags spewing verbal abuse at me.

Blizzard really should limit the party sizes to 2, 3 and 6. Those would be optimal, because a 4 man party (let alone a 5 man party) creates problems like the one you encountered. Bad party players will bully the solos, when they should in fact be the guys carrying the whole team.

In other news, this is the set of in game goodies you'll get if you buy the Blizzcon virtual ticket. So only one Overwatch skin, and it's pretty lame too... I'm not sure why they won't sweeten the deal by either lowering the price, or adding better goodies. Because I can't really see myself paying 40 dollars for this.

Brutal. Sounds like you had the right idea, those are just really poor mates. IMO Soldier and McCree can both handle Pharah just as well. If your Roadhog and Junkrat or Mei had switched to a Rein and Bastion combo like >>683405 was talking about (or even Torb), you probably could've locked it down.

Was that comp or QP? I have about 100 hours and probably left 10 games in QP because of nonsense like that, mates refusing to group up and get on the point, etc.

It does. Doesn't put you any closer to having a good match, though. Players like this guy dealt with need to get their head out of their KDR-focused assholes or stick to a different game.

> Junkrat, and a Mei on defense
i really hate it when our team has a good 2 dps / 2 tank / 2 healer set up and then someone is like "the game is telling us we have no defense heros so imma switch" and switches to junkrat from mccree / solder or something

i actually really hate the rein / bastion combo because it forces people to build their strategy around it and when it fails, they keep trying to go for it and refuse to switch until the last moment when its a loss at that point

They probably didn't need to protect you much, honestly. Ana's sleep darts are basically good for shutting down an ulti, 1, or putting a player out of the game for a short time. If a teammate attacks someone I put to sleep I sometimes get annoyed, because you wake up so quickly from a single hit, and the stun damage is .5 seconds, barely enough to get much damage off unless you can guarantee pileup damage, like with Junkrat's mine, or Tracer's ult.

I just watched Tracer and Mercy jacking off their dicks together while making out. Overwatch porn now up to 21 minutes of just Tracer-featuring scenes.

I don't play a ton so I wouldn't know that well ... it's ultimately a flawed but very fun game. TF2 is better, if you used to play before Overwatch started (my goto MP is once again TF2 after giving OW a long try, though I go back every few days)

and it has better porn too

Competitive would be your best bet, but at the same time you could be playing with people who are good at the game and just had shitty team mates that caused them losses. This game's matchmaking just works a lot off of win/loss records so everyone ends up winning a few games or so; I'm literally at a 50% W/L record.

If you're playing competitive as a group, the game gets exceptionally more difficult because you're playing against another group who could be more organized than your group. A lot of the game's strategies does play into just knowing the maps; you don't have to necessarily be a good player to use map flanks and get a couple of kills.

Haven't seen it yet. It at least has Aletta Ocean and Danny D so it has potential. The quality of porn parodies is usually dependent on the actors and the quality of the writing and how faithful they are to what is being parodied. Overwatch, much like Pokemon Go and Suicide Squad, is a gold mine for porn parodies.

I was just making an observation about how some people who are fans of the source material the parodies are being based on would appreciate them. You are right that it isn't necessarily true for everyone as most would appreciate the "action" much more so to speak.

Surprisingly yes. The adult film industry are usually the first to cash in on the popularity of a mass media based product like a game or movie for instance. Pro wrestling and other multimedia industries do as well.

Eichenwalde was kinda mediocre in design and theme. The defending team has the advantage in every choak point, especially after capturing the first point where you have to get through the tiny corridor besides the gates. I dont think Increasing the payload speed is gonna change much especially inside the castle where the defending team snipers and healers got every advantage working for them. Mercy can easily raise the entire team without them having to stick together and a Bastion can easily wreck any tank and offensive character trying to push the load.
I want to more maps over new characters. People are all excited over Sombre but I think we have enough characters as it is

>Changes to Symmetra are "definitely on our list, but I don’t think we’ll see a change go live until probably some time in November,” said Kaplan.

>"You know, Symmetra’s a really interesting hero to talk about," Kaplan said. "She’s one of our least-played heroes, [but] you have to read the stats with a little grain of salt there: She’s a hero who’s very situational and she actually gets played a fair bit, but she gets switched off of. What happens commonly is players will play her on defense on the first part of a point, and then when they’ve lost that point, then they’ll switch off of Symmetra. So, that definitely impacts her play time when you’re looking at the stats."

>"I don’t have anything really specific to talk about right now, other than she is kind of an internal project right now," said Kaplan. "She is a hero we’d like to make some changes to. I think those changes wouldn’t see the light of day until November, though, because we want to do a bunch of internal testing. It’s one thing when we do something [minor] — like, we have a change to Junkrat on the [Public Test Realm] where his Ultimate activates faster, but it’s a very incremental, safe change — whereas the type of changes we think need to happen to Symmetra require a lot more internal testing and discussion."

I do think a big problem for symmetra is that people really don't know how to properly utilize her. For instance, as much as everyone says she's great for defending the first point on attack/defense maps, most fail to recognize she's also great for attacking the second point of those same maps.

She does need some tweeks tho. I'd say make adjustments that emphasize her ability to bypass shields to help break make breaking through Rein blockades easier.

yeah she could output damage if shes close range but you generally dont want to be close range with her
her problem is that her abilities arent that great and is only useful at the first point on defense and even then, having another character would probably be better than having a symmetra

And that's the reason why the meta's so fucked up because people like you keep spouting bullshit like that. The support class currently is fubared beyond repair due to the way everyone keeps trying to shoehorn every support hero into a fucking healer. Mercy was the dedicated healer, Lucio gave incentive to keep the team together and move as a pack, and Zen was the damage amplifier. Now though, we have three redundant healers who step on each other's toes with only their Ults to separate one from the other, Lucio, who seems like the only unique and balanced support hero, and finally symmetra, a hero everyone is too tunnel-visioned with her on defense to even consider her useful in any other situation.

Making her a "defense" character won't actually fix whats wrong with her and will only reinforce the tunnel-vision that's plaguing the pro-centric meta of this game.

I don't read piss text stories, but the way the game revolves around Reinhardt is really frustrating. If your team gets a bad one, he's totally dead weight. And naturally the enemy Rein keeps getting teamkill after teamkill with Ana nanoboosting him.

Because the comp lineup never really changes, I tried playing some quickplay last night, first time since comp (season one) started. And oh boy, there' definitely more "variety" there, but on the other hand its also a total clusterfuck shitshow...

>it's racist to assume someone is from somewhere because blah blah blah

oh fuck off. it's natural to assume a persons ethnicity/background from their name. That's part of why we have names. This is what we've been doing pretty much since the inception of human consciousness. A persons name is often the first thing we have to start peicing together their identity. Until we have more information, we assume. The onus is not on us to just automatically know everything about a person, fictional or otherwise. Fuck off with the 'das raciss' bullshit about something so innocuous as making an assumption about a person based on limited information. It's not a big deal, it's not the end of the world, it's not racist. True racism would be targeting her or disparaging her based on her name and assumed ehtnicity, not simply assuming her ethnicity.

She's really not bad though and amazing at punishing the 3 Tank/3 Support comp. The only issue is that the type of team compositions and strategies most commonly used at the top-end meta don't support her play style so nobody picks her.

Same story goes for Soldier 76. He's an amazing flanker and excels at laying down cross-fire and confusing the enemy team during a push but since everything is so heavily focused on Murder-Balls and Dive-Comps that favor raw DPS over positioning and finesse, he's pretty much never picked and viewed as a shitty version of McCree since McCree has does slightly more reliable dps at a slightly longer range.

Bullshit. I know for a fact that if the opposing team has 6 players in a group, they're going to get matched up against another group of 6, not a bunch of randoms. Or maybe a team of 5 and 1 random.

Lol, you actually believe that? I've seen it personally dozens of times where a bunch of randos get paired with a 6-stack. Yes, it'll prioritize another 6 stack if you're queuing as a 6 stack but if there isn't another 6 stack queuing, it'll pair you with whoever else is trying to find a game.

But I want to talk about something else. Anyone struggling with the Junkenstein brawl? Winning it on easy with all the four heroes isn't very difficult, and even medium mode is doable. But getting thru the hard more, let a lone the no damge mode, seems impossible without a team....

I've only played it twice so far and it doesn't seem that bad. First time, I did it on medium and the door only took a single point of damage and then I tried again on easy just dicking around.

It does seem to hinge on whether or not you have a decent team who can aim accurately so I could imagine it going south if you're getting paired with terrible players.

Pharah is in such a weird place right now. Any half decent Hanzo or Mcree can take her out easily but she's so good at distributing the three support/tank teams Shes almost vital to have in your team. To fix her situation all they have to do is give some armor, 50 to 100 armor will make her viable against the other offense players or at least she wouldn't be shot down so easily.

Blizzard is so wrong-headed with these "flavor of the month" buffs and nerfs to rotate heroes in and out of the meta when what they really need to be doing is expanding the game modes and map variety to highlight the strengths these heroes already have. As it is, every map essentially favors close to mid-ranged territory control where long-range and high-mobility heroes feel useless compared to mid-range heroes with high DPS. Tweaking stats isn't gonna fix this problem. It's like they're balancing this game as if it were a MOBA, not a FPS.

But no, they'll keep making the same bland maps because they "don't want some heroes to be more oriented to the maps than other heroes" even though that's exactly what's happening now. It's like Blizz is so up their own ass over the effort they put into balancing this game that they can't see how it's an unbalanced mess with little variety. Yes, if you adhere to the 'meta', it's fairly balanced but as a result, almost half a dozen heroes are considered garbage tier when they don't need to be.

I swear to god, if any of these tweaks make it to the live servers and if the next map doesn't add a meaningfully different game mode, I'm uninstalling this game for good. The fun this game has to offer has grinned to a halt

Yeah i agree. Even with a full shield matrix i still cant take on an entire ult from bastion and would have to charge him and sacrifice my mech to protect my teammates. The barrier takes too long to charge as well. Her ult is way too predictable too, it so easy to avoid anybody who mains D.VA considers it a success if he manages to take out one player with it. Besides using it to clear out an area it cant do much against Zarya who basically gets a free 50 damage boost from it or Reinhardt who only needs to use his shield to survive it.
I want them to bring it down to only one second before self destruction but remove Hana's immunity to it. Oh the fun we would have

I think their general philosophy is to buff heroes that don't get used while avoiding debuffing other characters. It's somewhat different than the approach a lot of developers take but it does keep people's favorites from getting nerfed while encouraging people to play other heroes.

The trouble is that with the way the community meta works its hard to tell who actually needs adjustment and who's just a "flavor of the month." It seems like with a game with this many heroes you're always going to get at least a few that don't get played very often.

that's what I was referring too, using that in combination with "cooking off" so it explodes as soon as it reaches the target. Right now it's just a set timer after you hit the ult button and it gives the enemy team plenty of warning to get out of the way.

You're definitely fucking up if you're not already using rocket boost in combination with self destruct though. Lately I've seen people use it to explode the mech in the air over the enemy team, which could be extremely effective.

This is lacking a lot of in-depth detail.

So what are we gonna get things like the "Las Vegas Widowmakers"?
Is there a limit to players and teams in the organization?
Will the teams live in a house in that city?
If so who is funding the house?
Are we talking about benefits like 401k's, dental, and health insurance on the "contracts"?
Are we gonna have a draft and trade periods?

>Mystery Duel: A 1v1 best-of-five duel where a hero is randomly selected for you and your opponent—the same hero for both. Overwatch’s new “Eco-Point Antarctica” map, which is smaller than other maps (and Mei’s home base), will make it easier for heroes to face off one-on-one.
>Elimination: A 3v3 best-of-five brawl where, when your hero dies, they are dead—with a single-hero limit. Make sure you have a Mercy!
>Mystery Heroes: A 6v6 brawl that takes place on normal Quick Play maps, with regular rules, but you’re not allowed to pick which hero you have.
>No Limits: Here, you can have the six-Genji battle you always wanted. And I won’t have to deal with it. It’s basically Quick Play, as it is now. And I will avoid it.
>All Brawls: “Super Shimada Bros.,” “We’re All Soldiers Now,” and other old and new Brawls will be available here as a “playlist.” My favorite is the one that only takes place on Ilios’ Well point with Roadhogs and Lucios.

>Players can earn 3 loot boxes a week from winning Arcade games.

Yeah, she's another one of those classes that you need to constantly remind bad teammates to watch out for even though it's obvious they're flanking the shit out of you every round.

Couple interesting points from one of the Blizzcon attendees:

>She has 200 health, her gun has 60 rounds, and the spread is very similar to tracer. Her hack won't go through barriers or shields, taking damage during the duration or casting of her shift will unstealth her, and this makes Winston is really strong counter. The enemy team all switched to him for a bit at the end to mess around.

The question is, does she counter Mercy's Rez? The thing this game needs more than anything else right now is a way to counter that Ult and make her waste it, just like every other ult in the game. Constantly having to hunt her down is really tiring and it doesn't even remove the Ult from her pocket, it only buys time.

Me and my friend always stumble upon dumbasses who don't communicate one bit (even through written text). Everyone wants to pick their main and don't give a fuck about team composition - even if that means we'll have 1 to 0 healer. WTF.

Or people invite you into groups who either don't talk at all either (what's the point of a squad then?) or when they do communicate it's to come up with some really, really shitty plan.

I'm not saying I'm good at this game but I at least try to make things sort of work. Despite that, lately my ranked games resemble FFA way too much. There's no combo, no regrouping at all (everyone going one by one to get themselves killed), etc. That can get pretty irritating after a certain amounts of defeats.

typical low elo complaining about other people sucking. It's pretty simple if you're actually a good player, you're rank will get higher. Blizzard's matchmaking in Overwatch is pretty good, you get matched with people of you caliber most of the time, unless you're skewing it by grouping with people of disparate skill levels.

If you think your team needs more healers, then you should play them, I've won plenty of ranked games where no one plays a healer and no one says a word the whole time. If you think that you need to play the meta or have good teammates to win, that's your first problem.

The 20% XP boost, nothing else.

The game claims to be a team-based shooter, but in reality, you can't even FORM teams (or clans) in it, so it's pretty useless... After about 150 hours in Overwatch, I've already moved on. Call me when (or IF) they actually add clan support, so I could meaningfully find teammates. :/

But why? She already has the highest mobility out of all the tanks as well as the highest DPS when you factor in reloading times and headshot potential. She doesn't need to have the most health with armor out of all the tanks and increase her speed while firing as well.

There was literally nothing wrong with how she was before. I think I need to uninstall if that ever makes it to the live servers. This is just asinine.

Well, in fairness they're just running a test for now. But yeah, those buffs were made in 2 different patches, hilariously enough. They were like, +100 health and the move speed buff isn't quite enough. She needs to be able to call mech faster too.

She must not be played much in high level comp or something. I have no idea how they tune characters, what data they look at most.

I don't get why Blizzard buffs heroes based on low-pic rates, especially off the pro-meta. Due to the size of teams and one-hero limit, it's only possible to have 12 heroes picked at one time max.

This game promised a wide-range of play-styles and tactics but in practice, everything is balanced to favor a short-medium range skirmish play style and any hero who doesn't excel at that doesn't get picked, plain and simple.

But instead of developing new gamemodes and maps that change up the formula for the other heroes, blizzard lazily tweaks stats to make a low-pick heroes more appealing. I'm so sick of it.

Good point. Still, the health and move bonus didn't seem necessary to me, at least in the circles I run in. I win a fair bit more than I lose and am not a bad player. If my support is good and the rest of the players are decent, my D.Va is a hard nut to shell.

I think Dva's callback time should be shorter still. I mean, there are times when jumping off a cliff will get you back into the action faster than waiting for the callback meter to fill...

Anyhoo. Sombra seems pretty interesting... It's just too bad it's so difficult to really judge her yet, because they put the herolimit in QP too! And obviously everyone wants to play her on the PTR, but you CAN'T do it in ranked OR quickplay. So now the botmatches are full of six Sombras against whatever AIs....

I tend to harass as mech and make kills out of it. Treat her like a Sniper that can't scope and has rapid fire. The shots have perfect accuracy iirc. Go for only headshots like in the mech.

If they get close, move unpredictably and use melee. I can 1v1 anyone but a tank, including genji.

If you always call mech as soon as it's charged I guarantee your DVa game could use work.

3v3 isnt working out so well. People usually camp out that the spawn area using Reindhardt, ann, and bastion.anybody who gets close gets shot down by bastion. They Wait til their ults fill than charge against the remaining enemy players. They're practically trolling now. I tried the same strategy with other players we just ended up with draw.

Yeah, that was what happened in my third (and last, for now) round of 3v3. Cheese tactics. Smart way to play Bastion in general but not fitting for a 3v3 deathmatch-esque game mode. I can't really see Blizz limiting the character pool for that mode, though. Which is a shame because the map design and round duration would make that a great mode to hone your DPS skills.

Sombra is pure cancer right now. Not because she's Sombra but because she's new and shiny and that attracts poor players. Same thing happened with Ana, only difference is Ana is a much better team pick, even in the hands of a less skilled player.

Still looking for PC friends with mics for competitive. I'm a good support and decent tank/DPS. Supercoven#1475

I'm seriously loving 3v3 right now. I probably put over 500 hours into TF2's Arena maps so a high-stakes mode with no respawns is my bread and butter. It has such a different flow of gameplay than conventional modes.

Yeah, Roadhog is pretty much made for that mode and, not to toot my own horn, I have carried pretty much all my 3v3 matches due to my hog's prowess.

Though my first match was pretty funny since I didn't know what I was doing

Its not like Soldier76 ult or mcree or any of the offense characters ults but if you play it right you can take out three or four members of the enemy team. You just have to choose the right moment to use it. The problem is that the right moment will never presents itself unless you're part of a good team which doesn't happen to often. Pharah's rocket launcher has 6 rockets that fly across the map all the time, they do considerable splash damage and it takes only 2 seconds to reload. The enemy team are constantly reminded of your presence. But if you just hold back off firing rockets for 10 seconds, leave them to think you're dead and they will concentrate on the tank. flank them after they regroup you can really do some serious damage. Just don't ever use it while you're all by yourself, you're Obviously gonna be shot down.

If you mean vs D.Va as Pharah, use your mobility to get away. Ignore her for awhile, wait until she's otherwise engaged, then start shooting her from behind and in the air.

A good D.Va will block your shots, and if you get out of position, she will fly straight up to you and melee you right in the air. But mostly she can't do you much harm, and will instead rely on a long-shooting, higher-damage teammate to take you out.

1479717983981.png -(37449B / 36.57KB, 1024x578) Thumbnail displayed, click image for full size.
As for playing as D.Va, there are two ways to play her. I main her as a harasser, which not everyone agrees is the best way to play her. Depends on the team comp. If there's another tank that's fine. Here's what I do if she's 2nd tank:
  • Always aim for slightly below the head. Accuracy doesn't seem important, but D.Va up-close is all about the headshots. By aiming around the shoulders you'll get a fair bit of headshots and many shots that miss will hit the body.
  • Use your defense matrix somewhat sparingly, and never let it run completely out except in dire situations. Focus on blocking explosives, which it just eats up. You can also use it to block ults, Bastions, turrets, etc., and let teammates go in behind, like a low-powered Reinhart. Shield is useful for dealing with 76, Reaper, McCree, etc., too. Count shots on Reaper (8) and McCree (6). When they start to reload, rush in and spray them down. Then put your shield back up again. If you get in trouble, it's only a few seconds until your booster is active again.
  • Run away from anyone who can use a beam weapon, as defense matrix can't block it. Zarya especially. Harambe is a problem and so is Mei. Mei you can often get the better of just by a health advantage though.
  • Use your boost to get into unexpected places. The best way to end a boost is with a melee attack. This will knock players back, and is great for dislodging snipers from their roosts. After this follow up with either headshot guns or DM if they see you and can do damage. You can also melee Pharah in the air for some hilarious finishers. This is much easier to pull off than it sounds, as her melee range is pretty forgiving.
  • Boost out when you're in trouble! Be the health-pack whore. Know where all the packs are on every map, especially the big ones, and work them! You have great mobility and you can easily restore a ton of health.
  • Outside your mech you are more dangerous. Aim for headshots. I often just fire a straight line at head-height and wait for people to pop around corners. Occasionally I will stay outside my mech (if there's a lot of players around to protect me) to keep my increased damage output. Your main mech ult DOES build slowly when outside mech. Try jumping erratically, and sometimes TOWARD people, when you first pop out of the mech. They expect you to run and will lead shots as if you are trying to get away. You can often turn the tales by doing something unexpected. When you're close, melee. I've 1v1'd pretty much every hero at full health out of mech and won before. It requires a bit of luck but it's very satisfying.
  • Mech does a tiny bit of damage when you get back into it, and knocks back slightly. You can use this to get a surprise low-health kill.
  • Her ult can land you some team wipes if you time it right. I've provided a handy image to help. You should use booster right before ulting 99% of the time. There are some specific situations where it's useful to release it as the mech is killed, or stationary when you're low health in order to get a new mech and clear the area, but you will rarely get kills that way. Instead, hit booster and release at the right time. Keep in mind booster is 2 seconds and the ult is 3. I've spent a few hours in custom mode testing shots and this is my rule of thumb. If you're aiming straight, release immediately and it will detonate as close to the end of the boost as possible. Release slightly later depending on the angle of your shot. The mech will go to the end of the boost, then drop, still carrying some of the forward momentum. In this way you can keep the mech moving all 3 seconds that it takes to detonate, making it much more difficult to avoid. For example, doing it 25% into the boost will mean it will go exactly straight for 75% of the boost (1.5 seconds) and fall at the end (1.5 seconds). If you can keep it falling for that full 1.5 seconds, you're in the sweet spot. On a control point, sometimes straight up is a good bet (though it's almost always better to do a slightly angled shot from a distance). Release at right around 50% for the mech to explode just as it lands. Delay slightly less, maybe at 40%, and it will explode above their heads (depending on ceiling height), which sometimes is harder to avoid. Play around with the angles, though. It's a great tool and it wins matches.

>Getting 2 ultimates, teleporter's staying the same. New ultimate is a shield generator that doesn't need line of sight and gives an AoE of shields to teammates. Shields from generator are supposed to be a lot more than the 25 she can currently give with her ability. No longer has shield giving ability.
>Both ultimates will be getting more hp than current iteration's teleporter, some of that hp in the form of shields so they don't die as quickly.

Pretty cool. I'm not a Symmetra player myself but I can see how these changes make her a much more viable pick for offense, e.g. in cases where you might pick Reinhardt for shielding but want your team to have more mobility. I think they could nerf the damage of her sentry turrets just a bit, though, given all the buffs she's receiving.

Aw yiss. Totally worth it.

Didn't they nerf Lucio to the point where he's a waste of a hero slot in solo queue (as in, you basically need top-tier coordination to make the best use of his gimped healing and speed boosts)? That's what I've heard at least since I just haven't had the desire to play since the Sombra Update. The fun's just not there anymore.

This was where I finished last season, gold ~2200. I only placed at 1480 this season, but quickly climbed to silver and now I'm about 1800.

I'm not mad tho 'cause my placement matches (3-6-1) were a fucking joke and I wholly expected to be stuck in bronze for the whole season. Almost no one used mics, two games had leavers, and I saw some of the worst teamplay I've seen in my ~100 hours of playing. Tanks with full health acting like they're allergic to the point, clueless DPS consistently letting ~1 HP heroes escape and missing Riptires, etc. Just awful.

Post-placement matches are going great though. Found a couple of good 6-person groups through soloq this weekend and won almost every game with them.

I think there's something fucky with the placement match-making.
I'm new, so I got a bunch of people who were high-gold/platinum last year to teachcarry me.

Everyone had mics, everyone worked together, but we just couldn't make anything happen.
In 6 placement matches, we went 0-5-1, before dispersing.

Either it's taking their prestige/last season's ranks into account and matching us against gold/platinum groups, we've been incredibly unlucky, or I'm somehow sabotaging the entire team.

He's not completely useless because I've still won plenty of games with him and have had saved plenty of team mates from perilous situations, but they've nerfed his passive healing by 10% and his speed boost for some reason or another. Healing tanks is now even more abysmal with Lucio for some reason because I guess they think people pick Lucio primarily for his speed boosting abilities.

Blizzard must realize the money behind pumping out generic waifus for this game because the two people I play the most, Lucio and Junkrat, and Torbjorn who I used to play the most of have absolutely nothing for them. No merch, no buffs, no good skins besides the Halloween one for Junkrat - nothing.

I don't enjoy being a sniping healer like Ana or a pure healer like Mercy though; I can tolerate using Zenyatta but I enjoy Lucio the most since I can heal and also lay down firepower at the same time so I'm not just sitting there relying on my team to protect me most encounters.

I with they'd give everyone a fresh start. Especially because they have half admitted that the placements are still a work in progress. So I bet there are plenty of people ranked too high or too low.

A fresh start would make placement matches more chaotic, but it would be 100% fair towards everyone.

Not to mention solo and group queue are just straight-up not on the same level and it's not hard to game the system with a dual or triple group and rank up way faster than you ever could playing solo or even with a full stack. Honestly, Arcade 3v3 and 1v1 feel like the only modes worth playing at this point. As someone who got a max rank of 2443 last season, it was hilarious to wipe the floor with people ranked in the Masters and then get my ass handed to me by someone in bronze. Nothing settles the score like a good Arena fight.

But that's mostly too little, too late. The way this game is being "balanced" is really starting to feel like a Skinner Box. None of the tweaks, balances, and additions are being done to improve the game; they're only being done to alter it enough to give the illusion of variety and keep people playing while they readjust to the change. Overwatch was great fun back when it launched but now its a fucking chore to even think about playing. I think I'm gonna go back to playing some whacky community-created game mode for TF2.

They need to take the MOBA route with ranked and add in character masteries. Make it so you can only play ranked if you have 6 characters or so mastered. Im on my 4th placement match and I just cannot take it anymore. Constant leavers, people only knowing how to play one character. ugh

placements arent that big of a deal but the games after do since you get boosted gains for a while

they purposely placed gold and plat players lower than their "real" rank so you have to climb since a lot of people last season placed gold/plat, dropped hella rank and ended up in silver bracket because of an inaccurate placement

Oh man... I was soooo close to winning the last match too, but somehow the team totally fell apart. We were winning 2-0 on Ilios, yet the enemy made the perfect comeback! And eventho I finished with 4 golds and the POTG with Dva, it still felt bad. :/

I wonder if I could have reached platinium (min. SR2500) with a perfect 10 wins in a row...

I have enjoyed 3v3 more than I had expected, but sadly it gets old very quickly too, what with the EXTREMELY limited map pool and the somewhat limited hero selection.

It would largely depend on the team you rolled and vs'd in your placement matches. I'm guessing it wouldn't let you be placed too high or too low if you had no QP MMR and no previous Comp MMR. Because a placement match with no MMR to go on is not that useful an indicator of skill.

The fact is, it's always relied on either QP MMR or prior Comp MMR, so the only way to get placed really highly to start off is probably to do great in QP so your MMR is super-high, and then win most or all of your placement matches, which are inherently against similarly-ranked players. (That is, if you're top tier in QP you'll be facing top tier players in placement.)

It's not at all unfair, if you think about it. I think the people pissed off by how S3 is working are just kinda bad at math, or don't understand well enough how the system works. In the end, if you are ranked lower than you think you should be, you will be able to grind up to your actual ranking with relative ease, regardless of if you get leavers, or trolls like me on your team. If you find you aren't moving up in rank steadily, then in fact it was the old placement, and not this present one, that was mistaken...

Yes, he plays better "then" me, obviously. Otherwise he would have landed way lower, because I won almost all of my placement matches, and he didn't. (Which means all the placement matches are BOGUS!)

You seem to believe that the system sorts itself out, in the long run. I disagree. Let's assume that there are three kinds of players: bad, average (to good) and great (to excellent). Of these, the bad players will always sink, no matter what. And the great players can probably climb ranks, or "beat Elo Hell", if you will. But most players are just average (to good). If they lucked out and got placed higher than they should have, they get to keep that position. And the other way around: if they were unlucky, they are stuck to where ever they landed, because they don't have the skills to beat Elo Hell.

That is why everyone should get a fresh start. But currently it seems you are dictated by past performance, which seems unfair. (Especially considering that Blizzard has admitted there being problems with their matchmaker. They are still tweaking it.)

Well, I obviously SHOULDN'T get placed higher... assuming the system works. Or do you agree that it has problems?

When I play Overwatch, I pretty much only end up playing Reinhardt. Why? Because he's the most reliable tank in the game, assuming you've got a reliable team, and for whatever reason nobody wants to play him.

But also, I don't play FPS games so my ability to aim isn't good. But, what I can do is beat the shit out of just about anybody, tackle light characters into walls accurately, and spam flame-shots that I aim while my shield is up. I was ranked in the 50's on the PS4, but then I switched to PC which is actually a lot fucking harder for Reinhardt.

I can't remember what my SR was last season, but after trawling some forums and videos for the past couple of nights, it has become clear to me that the placement matches are a total sham. (And here I thought Blizzard couldn't make the system any worse than it already was...)

Winston is a contender for a special skin, as is Mei. But they could do others too. Like maybe some sort of Rudolf Reindeer costume for Pharah. Or a Sled mech for Dva (with an elf costume for her). Then there's the "russian santa" Ded Moroz, so Zarya could have something relating to that. And Torbjörn is already an elf, kind of. (But what about Ana? Muslims don't celebrate christmas. And then again she got a halloween costume, hmm.)

...in a game which supposedly represents superficial diversity but, oh look, all of the female characters have (at worst) average body types and everyone has perfect skin and teeth and no one has scoliosis.

More mindless pandering for the sake of the "canon" and "shipping" crowd. How about they make a character who's gay for being a decent goddamn teammate, at least that actually has something to do with making the game better.

Honestly, I felt the community has firmly defined every aspect of the characters and any attempt of Blizzard trying to re-establish them as something else, it's just gonna piss off the fans. It's like when they gave Sombra the 'Boop' voice line instead of Lucio despite it being an established Lucio meme since (at least) the launch of the game. Everyone knows Pharah, Mercy, Zarya, Reaper, McCree, Genji, Mei, Bastion, Roadhog, and Winston are gay and Junkrat's bisexual alien.

Oh my god, I've been saying this since the game was released and everyone was all like, "no, her ult is great, it charges so fast and kills everyone, you're just a noob". Fucking finally people start to see things my way.

I'm glad they made Tracer gay; she's the poorest character in the game and they might as well dump all the cheesy, generic and predictable elements into her, including this cliché christmas comic.

I'm sure all the bigots that hate gays, etc, are going to be so altered in their thinking now that their favourite character has revealed their sexual preference.

I don't care that Blizz hasn't introduced a fat, genderqueer, acne-and-bad-hygiene character. None of those qualities (or lack thereof) have any bearing whatsoever on the gameplay itself, game balance, hero abilities, etc.

OW is as plainly archetypal as any other class-based shooter. This is just more garbage identity politics being shoehorned into every possible medium. It doesn't make the game or the community better, it's just troll fodder so half the community can stay perched atop some irrelevant moral high horse. See >>690253 and >>690262

My competitive score has been getting lower and lower with every poor team I get. Simple shit like level 100+ people maining Symmetra the entire game and refusing to switch, the team constantly going to same direction and never changing paths, Reinhardts charging into the fray without the team behind them, and so on. I'm only at 2300 so I fear what anything lower than that is if people at this rank are this bad even when they're high enough in level and experience to know better.

Many of us are. There's something very attractive about a woman who defies social expectations and is independent in thought.

Some of them are into ladies. That's OK. There are tomboyish ladies who aren't, too. Also, people are much more comfortable these days about not being confined to the understanding of themselves as straight or gay ... or not really caring about the gender, so much as a person. Be yourself and with any luck you'll find someone who you're attracted to that's also attracted to you.

I've been with many girls like this (most of my girlfriends are kinda tomboyish, as was my mom -- think that's why I'm into 'em, as good ol' Freud would say). I've even been with "lesbians" ... It really just depends on circumstance.

While he doesn't really counter any heros, he's got some DPS, one of the best ults in the game, has good range, can punish the other team if they don't have enough DPS by farming his ult, gives his team wallhacks.

So i managed to join a team of two of my cousins who i just found out were big fans of the game and a bunch of friends we know. i was kind of intimidated by the whole ranking system, i didnt want to have a bad experience with tryhards and toxic players cause they ruined so many games for me in the past. Playing the game not just with people you know but people that you interact with in real life changes the experience quite a bit. Its an awesome feeling being part of a team that actually appreciates how hard you try and their main focus is having fun together not just reaching a specific rank like a bunch of LoLfags. It made me experience a new aspect of the game and im very glad i held back until now.

Solution is to just never play ranked. I still try hard on QP but people just don't get so butthurt when they lose, and you can play any character.

QP matches seem more evenly matched as a rule (still matches by rank, just the number is hidden).

Just try to win in QP and you'll get matched with good players who like to have fun. I also try to say something mentally retarded at the start of each match to lighten the mood. 7/11 IS AN INSIDE JOB, or, IT'S TACO TUESDAY AND I'M ALL OUT OF TUESDAYS.

I still can't figure out Winston. I'm either wrecking the other team's shit or dying instantly and I'm doing nothing different in either scenarios. He also seems more like a DOT hero than a DPS hero so maybe that has something to do with it. He's kinda like Lucio except instead of healing everyone at once slowly, he's damaging everyone at once. slowly.

He's very situational and very hard to use well. Basically unless you have a shield he will get screwed with anything other than 1v1. And even with the shield it's risky.

He's great against Genji. Great for picking off the snipers. Decent at killing healers but those are usually with others. Take out the weak solo heroes, then focus on confusing and disrupting the enemy in groups. You should have a DPS hero working with you in that case, so they can use the distraction to make kills. Don't expect Winston to make many kills himself,except against weak solo targets.

Fluke Hawkins - Tue, 03 Jan 2017 01:57:20 EST ID:X0axUq69 No.691299 Ignore Report Quick Reply
I don't think her primary is really OP, I mean for the first second she's hitting someone she does 30 damage, 60 for the second second, and 120 after that, decreasing if she goes 1 second without hitting anyone.
She has to be able to shoot at someone, from point blank range, uninterrupted, for 2 full seconds before the primary is a danger to anyone.

Any other character would have killed you by that fourth/fifth second if you let them stand within 10 feet of you and shoot you.

Geralt - Wed, 04 Jan 2017 21:22:24 EST ID:s9oY21xQ No.691467 Ignore Report Quick Reply
making it more "consistent"

>Firstly, the hook victim will now move in to the position directly in front of Roadhog, rather than just a straight line towards him. There is a cap on how far 'to the side' you can be pulled, so you can't just hook someone, spin 180, and dump someone off a cliff. This part (along with some other bug fixes) should generally make the hook feel more consistent as to where the victims get pulled.

>Secondly, the line-of-sight check to see if a hook should connect or not is now checked from Roadhog's position, instead of the hook's position. This basically means the hook can't connect to targets that Roadhog himself can't see.

>Lastly, there is a new persistent line-of-sight check back to Roadhog once the hook has landed. If this check fails, the hook breaks off and returns to Roadhog. This means if you get hooked and move out of LOS quickly (either you dashed, were falling, were pushed, etc), the hook will now break early and not pull the target.

>Overall these changes will likely make Roadhog a bit weaker, but we'll evaluate his performance once we get people playing him and make adjustments as necessary.

What're you talking about? I feel like I see her almost every game, almost as much as 76 or Genji. Maybe that's just because she wasn't as popular before.

I was a D'Va main even before the buff and was doing just fine then... you just gotta play her as a hybrid between tank and backliner. That's a really strange position and she's super-situational. But I also mained Heavy in TF2, so I got very used to knowing when to run and when to stand your ground, and running is the most important part of both Heavy and DVa. DVa can just do it better. If you use your shield conservatively and take a couple small hits, you can effectively float between all the major healthpacks. Boost to a pack, get in a little confrontation and aim for the upper chest area (good compromise between headshot/spread ... she shoots 8 pellets per shot and you want most of them connecting), block any high damage shots, then get the fuck out and farm the next pack. This not only distracts the other team while your team can push; it also keeps the enemy from using their healthpacks.

One change I've made to my DVa game lately is using my ultimate as a 2nd life more than a way to make kills. If you're playing against anyone decent, they'll be able to get away from even a well-timed ult. Instead use it when you're almost dead, and quickly boost almost straight up (but with a bit of arc), releasing at halfway up. Everyone will scatter, allowing you to FACE AWAY from enemies/get to cover before you get in your mech. If you expose your mech's massive headshot box while getting in you might find your new life is 75% gone by the time you get in. Or you can always use it as a last-ditch effort even 1v1 when you know it would be difficult for the person who killed your mech to find cover; as most people know you can activate the ult for about .5 seconds after the mech dies. That way you get the maximum health use out of it, though only in rare cases will you kill with it. Mostly good for area control.

She's really versatile in how she can be played and frankly I'm surprised more people don't use her. I see some people thinking she has to be played as a hard tank and getting confused when they just die and do almost no damage (huge damage falloff). Just needs more imagination.

It takes like 20 seconds at point-blank range, more than enough time to call for your teammates to help out, then pin her gigantic hitbox and hit her with a hammer when she's at like 3/4 HP or so.

If you don't have a hitscan, Pharah will rape your entire team, and soldier's buffs mean he outclasses Mccree at all but the longest and shortest ranges.
But if they don't have a Pharah, in a lot of maps, plenty of DPS combinations don't include soldier.

Tried playing OW today. Can't help but feel a bit bored by this game now. It's good for 1-2 matches, but after that, eh, it just feels like it's not really expanding much. Admittedly, it does what it does well, but after 100 hours or so, is there much to continue on, except occasional play? Not sure how people play comp all day.

That feel when I think I could reach Diamond, if I ever got at least one friend/dependable player with me.

This one match was the worst; some guy kept harassing me, because I said he and his party played badly. But they really did! And I had four golds with Dva, so I simply could not do more... In the end I only managed to get a draw with those losers. And then the one guy berated me for upvoting myself... well who the fuck else COULD get my vote, when they did nothing! Blah.

Nah circlejerk has nothing to do with it that primaattack is ridicule. She can take out a distracted D.VA with minimal effort. If you use the barrier right, you can get close enough lock on to most characters and kill'em in 4 seconds max. She's pretty op but i havnt seen a lot of symmetra players which is strange. Plenty of Naruto though.

The OW community is absolutely insufferable. On top of being filled with overly entitled, sensitive kids who are way too invested in "canon" and the body types of fictional characters, there is serious, widespread ignorance about the concept of a team-based game and how one should be organized and played. Blizzard's continued "kid gloves" approach of promoting "fun" over competitiveness and basic decency/sportsmanship is making things increasingly worse for players who care about actual gameplay. Anyone who has touched comp this season will tell you the same.

I don't remember TF2 ever being this bad. I recall it got worse after it went F2P and hat-crazy but I had put it down long before that point. Never mind that OW is still a $40 title.

God, I'm really fucking sick of how smug the Devs are about "the pitch perfect balance" this game doesn't have and how anything other than a generic mid-range skirmish is unbalanced and can't be a permanent fixture in their game because it will ruin everything.

The new CTF mode works really well when you have a team built with quick offensive heroes to capture the flag, versatile midfielders to control the other team and make space for the offensive heroes to do their job, and reliable defensive heroes to keep their side on lockdown. In fact, this is the first time I've actually felt like it was important to have well-rounded roster rather than having a roster that's most efficient at killing the other team. I don't get where they're coming from about how Overwatch should be geared exclusively for single-objective gameplay because this CTF mode has just proven them wrong. What's holding back this game the most is that any given team composition will work just as well on any map and this has completely stagnated the gameplay and it requires inane hero "balances" to break up the meta. What this game actually needs are properly different maps and gamemodes that highlight aspects of heroes that are underutilized.

Does Tracer break this mode like how everyone who said CTF can't work feard? Nope, not at all. She's great at this mode and excels at it (more so than at the more traditional modes) but it's not difficult to deal with her if you have any amount of game-sense and coordination. It's nice to have a mode where the meta is turned on its end and heroes excel at different objectives for different reasons. What's killing this game in my mind the complete and total lack of variety and I'm sick of Blizzards attempts to defend this total lack of variety by putting "balance" and "consistency" on a pedestal when the existing balance is a complete joke.

People enjoy playing with their favorite character, even if they were underpowered. Not a lot of people like Symmetra's playstyle.

Bastion can easily be countered by a Genji's deflect or anyone flanking him. Torbjorn and his turrets are practically useless infront of a Reinhardt shield. You cant counter a Symmetra's primaryattack, you can try getting away but with that range and damage its unlikely you will Which is why it needs to get nerfed.

I don't think they need to nerf Symetra, just provide better audio/visual indicators of how dangerous she is and what the range of her gun is.
She's not a real threat to anyone until someone lets her get close enough to charge up.

Just played CTF for the first time. It's kinda disappointing because of how easy defending is. So 90% of games end in a fucking draw.

They need to really think about their maps and not just hack up some old ones to make it work. If the flag is behind heavy chokes it's very hard to assault. Also, if the entrance to the flag from the defender's spot is behind a choke it makes it easy for the enemy team to take the flag once, then camp the enemy's flag area until they max out all 3 caps.

Feels like multiplayer games are always doing stuff like this. How many experienced designers do they have on these teams, vs just a bunch of programmers and 1 or 2 lead designers who may or may not be well-rounded? Should be more democratic to avoid these kinds of mishaps. Then again I guess all that would require major map reworkings, and that won't happen because inevitably they'd look rushed/hacked and people would bitch about that rather than the flawed mechanics. Can't win. Oh well.

>Pro gamer and therefore an immobile junk-food hoover

They wouldn't have to change anything else about her at all. Even her in-game voice responses would be better; instead of an insufferably smug Mary Sue supermodel she'd just be a hilariously egotistical wheezing lardass who's so fat she needs a Gundam to get around. Then she'd almost be like a fucking actual character or some shit.

For a game that sells itself with a huge roster of heroes, most of them don't have any personality whatsoever. This game is like if Team Fortress 2 was written by Joss Whedon; dialogue made up almost entirely of smug, unfunny quips, and relentless fap bait, both of which are guaranteed to make drooling Joe Scumfucks think it's the best thing ever.

It really is the absolute worst. What the fuck kind of stealth character announces their position? She literally screams "HERE I AM". Why even bother making a stealth character if you're going to do that shit? "I AM THE MASTER OF STEALTH SHOOT ME FAGGOTS HERE I AM I'M SO SNEAKY SHOOT ME SHOOT ME"

I mean, the Dead Ringer in TF2 makes a loudish decloaking noise, but that move was an Autocasting Stealth+Divine Shield+Feign Death crutch for babies. Sombra's shit is like the worst aspects of every Spy watch put together. The only thing she has going for her is the speed boost.

bastion is getting some changes

>Recon Mode - Lowered spread and increased magazine size, to help with general viability in this mode.
>Sentry Mode - We're looking at focusing this mode into more of a tank-buster and barrier-buster mode, while also making it feel less suicidal to be transformed. To that end we're testing stuff like increased spread and removing headshots, but taking less damage while transformed.
>Self-Repair - We've been testing a few big changes to this that are feeling really good so far. Currently our internal build has Bastion able to use Self-Repair while moving and also having it no longer interrupted when taking damage. To balance that out it is now on a resource system (similar to the route D.Va's defense matrix went). These changes have turned this ability from a more niche rarely used ability, to a much more powerful and core survivability tool.


people need to let their team know what health packs are hacked so they could use them since she gains ult from them

Those changes to bastion sound pretty good. Bastion is currently too cheesy, being either too effective and bland as a strategy, or utterly throwing a game. This will make him more of a specific utility for certain team comps.

I agree with the Sombra points. She does feel useless, but any hero that relies on good call-outs would (zarya, zen, lucio, etc). Beyond the need for good team synergy, she also has to be an appropriate pick against the enemy comp, like most heroes.
