Title: Overwatch
Post by: danger zone on May 03, 2016, 12:58:28 PM
I love it, I hate it, I play a lot of it.

I'm in the Early Access right now but will be playing all through the open beta and such.

Bnet info: galaxiesaway#1513

Add me! I've got quite a few friends who play so if you ever wanna party up just feel free to hit me up :)

Okay, so I pre-loaded the beta yesterday and played a bit of it last night.

Guys, even if you don't buy into the hype, trust me. This game is going to kill TF2. (https://youtu.be/cmNVKIbI91Y?t=20s)

I just wish I had $40 lying around for when the open beta ends. :(

Still, if you, too, are on BattleNet, my info is Olse#1939. Even after the open beta of Overwatch, I'll still be playin Hearthstone, which is f2p. :P

Yeah, I'm digging/hating it too.  Great fun, they did what Blizzard does:  Take a concept, polish the shit out of it and make it smooth.

kamo#1126 on b.net, feel free to add.  Also play Heroes of the Storm, Diablo (sometimes) and WoW. :)

Played the Open Beta as well.....and really liked it.
Like TF2 it was really fun when the team coordinated.
I was also surprised by the number of toons available and how they seemed to really be good expressions of how people play the game (and how fully formed and well thought out they are).

I will be buying it and playing on the 24th.

Yep. It's team fortress 3. If only there were private servers, it could have ushered in a resurgence here.

If there was such a thing and if Blizzard ever allowed it, I'd invest in this idea.

I don't think it would ever be possible for Blizzard to set the game up to accept private servers

Nope, they've made their stance clear on that. All games are run through battle.net. It's a shame.

Overwatch beta was great. Just great. I played it on the PS4 cause of my PC problems and the game is just fun.

The first half hour of play and I was thinking "glorified TF2". Still sorta think that but it's not such a great opinion of mine. Many things are unique in Overwatch but of course things are repeated. I'm almost certain Overwatch will not last as long as TF2 has, it just lacks the simple interactions like TF2 has (ex: rocket jumping, sticky " ", etc.) The simple things we can do in TF2 is what makes it fun.

I'm still behind Valve making an next gen TF2, I think they would dominate the market yet again. Old generation just sucked ass, simple as that. Valve won't. But the playerbase is very much still there. In game chat I talked to many past TF2 players.

Nothing else to really say about it except I am definitely getting it.

Played the open access beta and it was a lot of fun. It is extremely smooth. I really hope hacks don't take this game over though. If ONLY they allowed community servers..

Knowing that any game can be hacked to one extent or another, I will say that Blizzard has traditionally been pretty damn aggressive about it, far moreso than Valve imo.

I'm concerned about cross platform servers. It was very apparent that PC users were on my PS4 game, and using aimbots already. In spectator mode I found about 4 users who were snapping to other player's heads. Using Hanzo was usually a choice for anyone I went against that was using hacks.

Overwatch doesn't support cross platform. PC users can only play on PC, Xbox only on Xbox, and PS on PS.

I came to that conclusion becauseof my time in spectator mode.You can't use any hacks on PS4, at least not easily. But if you say so.

I'm not just saying so lol... Blizzard said so themselves.

Remember that Overwatch goes live in 39 minutes. :D

Launches May 24th at midnight GMT (or whatever the hell they call it now, I grew up with it as GMT/Zulu), so that's:

4pm PST
5pm MST
6pm CST
7pm EST

etc.

So a friend of mine got me Overwatch.

Any Newb who wants to play with me, hit me up. My info's up in the thread.  ;D

I dunno if i should get into Overwatch, have purposefully stayed away from it thus far. I try to stay away from huge time sinks (i failed with TF2, lulz), but maybe i'll check it out if there's genuine interest and need for a Newbs crew on there.

Blizzard pushed out their first legit patch today. FINALLY WIDOW AND MCCREE NERFS

http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20745235963

Their nerfs were definitely needed IMO. I am glad they are attempting to make Widowmaker based more on headshotting than just freely bodyshotting till you get the kill :|
