I already spoiled the creation of this thread slightly in that thread which we shall not name here.



Let's discuss Overwatch!
It'll go live for everyone in just a few days and I'm already enjoying it of course as a pre-order person
I played it 3 hours straight with two friends tonight and feel like I'm only scraping the surface. I maybe understand ONE character fully at this point - Lucio and that's it.

Awesome!

I'm soloing for a bit atm so I'm excited to try a few characters for fun

Just witnessed a team of Bastions just sit on spawn openings on my squad, but I feel like peeps should be able to get around that with a balanced team.
Guess we'll see.

I don't think quickplay will be anything but a mess in this beta. The sea levels are just going to rise tomorrow when the early access period ends. I doubt a few days is enough time for match making to really make heads or tails of things. That said... this game has good MMR and good match making.

And it has a competition mode that's disabled in the beta... where it is more of a sink-or-swim thing like other competitive matchmaking games... that delivers the best games but also most punishes solo queue.

The worst design in the game, and maybe the worst "feature" in any FPS I've ever played. And people get all pissy when you call it an aimbot. It speaks to the quality of the game that I still play it despite Soldier 76.

Consider me triggered. It makes me laugh at all the stuff that I complained about being "automated nonsense" in DirtyBomb. I'm sorry SplashDamage! I had it all wrong.

I think I'll go abuse it.

What are your least favorite characters at this point? Do you even have one?


Also kinda old, but theorizing who the next heroes will be... or perhaps just old concepts?

Well if Buzzfeed was a Overwatch hero it would be Junkrat.

"To be fair" close range AOE instakills aren't aimbots.

It's garbage design and it doesn't belong in a "competitive" game at all.

Junkrat is pretty shitty too, but he's no Soldier. They're both silly.

Remember when someone tried to say that TF2 was more accessible than this? HAH!

Not only is Soldier's design 100% phoned in garbage, but he was one of the earliest heroes they completed according to Gamespot's vid doc series, and Blizzard seems convinced that they knocked it out of the park! He's perfect! No changes! Not even a nerf! Let's re-do Bastion again instead!

I think there should be some kind of relationship between difficulty and reward. There's really not in Overwatch.

You don't think Reaper's ult is an equivalent?
Soldier's design is certainly boring I'll give you that. Zarya's is kinda crap too

The only character you mention that I've experienced much issue with is Junkrat so far. The gun spam is real in an objective based game like this
Part of me feels like the eliminating the bounce would reduce the issue? Not sure

But I'm willing to see how things shake out as more people play longer
I think with competent teammates some of this stuff will go away

I thought you were enjoying the game though? Are you not?

Every single character in Overwatch is OP in some relationship to other characters. That's fundamentally OKAY. That's just how the game is balanced. But they didn't need to make everything so easy. Even sniping is easy, since low HP characters are one-hit-kills w/ body shots. And that includes Hanzo's scatter shot! Shooting the fucking floor should not 1HK Tracer.

Junkrat is not atypically abusive. He fits right in.

The flow of information sucks in the game too. Everything is a KILL, but kills aren't actually kills. Jeff Kaplan says that this isn't kids-glove bullshit, and yet they re-wrote the semantics of the genre to make sneezing on your opponent more rewarding. And god forbid anyone actually know who is contributing. If someone isn't "on fire", you're completely in the dark. The scorecards inadequate.

Team play and team composition outweigh individual skill in Overwatch. That is fundamentally OKAY. But you can achieve that without muting the skill curve across the board. You have to give players the ability to fail. When everyone wins, we're all losers.

And yeah I like the game. I've played it for hundreds of hours already. A few small (but fundamental) changes would go a long way in making it more viable as a competitive game.

Aimbots in eSports. What a load of crap.

Everyone doesn't win though do they? There are still winning teams and losing teams at the end of each round
You can still fail and get dominated
I can still be humiliated in someone's 'Play of the Game'

I think it's too early to judge the game. I want to see Competitive play and see where things go when they get into MLG shit
I'm interested to see higher level play with constant hero swaps (I assume) and certain pairings that start to dominate

I really like the space they're trying to occupy though. I feel like there's enough games that champion individual play, k/d, all the traditional FPS cliche's
It's simple but sometimes simple offers more fun? As I type this I realize it's an issue of constant debate on here between our preferences
Feels like they're trying to offer something new and refreshing here to me

It's about excessive rewards and hand-holding bullshit. I think that was obvious.

If it has success as an eSports title, it will be because of promotion. Success in eSports is only kinda about the quality of the game. And I'm not advocating "championing individual play" at all. I'm advocating taking the kid-gloves off.

Also: an eSports game without round-to-round statistics or the ability to evaluate teammate performance is a joke.

Everyone has been trying to reduce toxicity and reward mediocrity lately :D

There's a lot to like about Overwatch.. that won't prevent me from criticizing it.
