I know this is a few days late, but what in the actual fuck is Blizzard thinking?
>an Overwatch character whose backstory is that she's a professional StarCraft 2 player
WHY AM I NOT IN THE BETA YET BLIZZARD
If I was a game dev, I'd do this kind of shit. If there were ever bios and stuff for my characters, a stupid trivia fact in there would be that their favorite video game would be other games that I had made.
Video games are stupid garbage for children.
The fact that you care about things like this proves that you should have outgrown them by now, but are instead lingering around them because your psychological growth was stunted and you did not evolve to a more mature stage of life.
You are a grown man still in a crib, complaining about his pacifiers and mobils and blankie. You are pathetic.
What's the big deal?
Just more fodder for the porn pipeline as far as I'm concerned
Overwatch is dying faster than Heroes did on twitch.
enough eva references, blizzard. now fix your games.
just got into the beta a couple hours ago.
spent the majority of time playing as the TF2 Soldier like hero Pharah
if someone had told me it was possible to make an even more casualized TF2 i wouldnt have believed it
but blizzard managed it.
>Pharah is the soldier from TF2.
>except rocket jumps are damage free because jetpack~
>no alt weapon
>"ult" move thats basically a free triple kill every use
felt disgusted using her.
the heroes need a lot of balancing i think, or maybe theres just a lot a lot of bad players right now
>Just got turned down for the Sol Contingency beta
not even, thanks to everyone hero announcing their ults, you have roughly 3 seconds to look up and shoot at her, which is enough time for any offensive/defensive hero to kill her from full health. Tanks/Supports not named Roadhog get fucked though.
Well I guess I'm just an unimaginative fuckwit because I would just move to Worst Korea and live like a king until my inevible death drowning in K-Pussy.
I'd imagine it's because of her insane mircomanaging skills, having to control multiple systems at once.
If blizzard actually did make her a trans girl how apeshit would /v/ go?
I don't give a fuck about the sjw movement but I think I'd like them putting in a transgirl just to see the shitstorm it would bring.
I would fucking love it more than anything. If they made their female "pro gamer" a tranny it would just be the ultimate insult. Even in this fictional universe, the only "girls" capable of going pro have cocks.
>tfw you will never play Vivi's Adventure
Korean GFs are always uggo, but that's because they're like a plot of land. Invest a little money on them and you've got yourself some prime real estate after they get the government-mandated plastic surgery.
here's another one from the fighting arcade
So open beta this weekend during blizzcon, right? What else can they do besides the new pandas movie trailer, they need something.
They are both full of shit. They share so much culturally, architecturally, period weapon wise, etc.
A jap I used to play dota with always would tell me about how theres a conspiracy by the Koreans to promote Korean values in Japan and that they control the media. Sounds familiar lol.
>A jap I used to play dota
That's the only thing I find strange your statement.
>There will never be new Metal Slugs as good 3
>Blizzard will never make a new Lost Vikings game
They really overestimate influence Korea has over there
What kind of Korean values? Does he just mean Swedenesque anti-nationalism in favor of SK or is there some kind of sick angle of Korean philosophy I am not aware of?
What? I just find it strange japs play dota 2.
Eh, piloting a mech would be more like piloting a fighter plane, most of the management shit you described is done by computers, and done way better than a person. The real demands on the pilot are the actual piloting skill (Reaction time, which men are superior to women in), psychological stress, lack of sleep, G force stress on the body, and balls of steel, all things men do better.
Ever read the book "The Right Stuff"? It takes a very specific type of person to be a pilot, especially being a test pilot (astronaut level balls) which the character basically is, if its the first mech ever.
They can't very well say she's a korean D&F player, NHN/Nexon wouldn't allow that to happen, so they have to lie and pretend anyone actually plays SC2 anymore. I guess them saying "former SC2 player" is technically correct though.
She's going to be my in game waifu, just like Scarlett is my irl waifu
nah koreans use naver, insoya and respective game BBS'. Anonymous culture never really existed there. Obviously the odd stray korean comes here but that's not really indicative of anything.
On naver and insoya, everyone's just saying "who cares dedgaem" pretty much. the blizzard section of naver's forum is barren, there's like 50 posts in the last month there. 40 of those were tournament related for SC2.
league is shit, D&F also known as DFO is number one in popularity, has been for like 4 consecutive years and shows no signs of slowing down. League is 2, sudden attack is 3, don't remember 4, maplestory is number 5
Don't let Putin find out and you're alright. For your safety though, don't make fun of the ones that squat for a living, those have Kalashnikovs for bones and can wrestle bears with their thumb-no wait, that's just Putin.
Yeah because that worked out so well for Germany and France right? Fuck foreigners, let them stew in their own goddamn hellhole and stop bring their problems over to other places.
yeah, what do you expect when 80% of players let in are streamers. Obviously they're not gonna be playing in their offtime because they get money from streaming so it's a waste.
Hopefully with whenever wave 2 pops up, we see the game playable besides during the middle of the day because the fucking neet streamers only play then.
>Our goal for the Closed Beta is 100% gameplay feedback, and we’ll be encouraging participants to discuss and dissect every hero, map, ability, and other aspect of the game on our upcoming beta forums.
>In order to get the most meaningful and constructive feedback possible, the total number of players in the Closed Beta will be extremely limited
Blizzard's gone full retard with this one. Don't expect many people to get in outside of beta weekends.
I have no problem with a focus on streamers, they provide feedback without being aware of it, they're literally sheeple who will play whatever you put in front of them and critique it honestly. Most people who play "betas" don't even bother filling out a single survey or solitary forum post.
That said, if they were gonna go full shill and make it streamer only, they should have done that. Despite what >>315362327 says, i'm queuing right now, have been for about 3 and a half minutes. Still waiting. it takes an exceptionally long time to get in a match when it's not mid-day, because that's when all the streamers are playing, and most people in the beta are streamers, but not all.
posted a question on the ama sticky :')
I better get an invite or I'm gonna FREAK!
another genius marketing strategy
How weird. A little funny but just really bizarre. So Overwatch is way in the future but they're still playing StarCraft II? They could of at least pulled a DXHR and called in StarCraft XII or something.
Widowmaker is way more broken anyway. Bodyshot does 170, the recoil is pretty low, has 30 shots in a clip, her full auto is on par with Soldier 76's rifle and her ultimate lets your team see the enemy through walls.
They must make it open beta after blizzcon or during, they must. I can't imagine how incompetent these fuckers are, holy shit.
This desu senpai baka.
I'm gonna be real and say that I'm only interested in the waifus. The gameplay looks cool though I guess.
Also that last samurai looking Bow guy screaming crazy japanese shit makes me kek so fucking hard.
This. When Riot created their Korean waifu bait, they ended up with the most non-gameplay popular character they've ever made. The fact that Ahri has also typically been top-tier in terms of gameplay is just icing on the cake.
Blizzard's now just following suit with their own Korean waifu bait. Hope you guys enjoyed your Tracer and Widowmaker fanart, cuz now it's just D.Va from here on out.
Blizzardfags will play any blizzard game, so it has an instant fanbase whether it's good or bad. If blizzard manages to make it as addicting as something like TF2 it has potential to grow into something big.
>keep the beta closed, giving out keys mostly to streamers/youtubers
>streamers/youtubers play the game and basically give it free advertising
>hype builds and builds until blizzard releases open beta and everyone wants to try it
Actually it really is pretty smart.
His name is literally "Reaper", what the fuck do you expect him to say? Do you really expect a detailed exposition when it's a character based on the grim reaper?
Sometimes you fags want to whine about the most retarded shit
i can't be the only one who sees Reimi Saionji from Star Ocean 4
I wasn't even whining you sperg.
Reaper is LITERALLY the epitome of Edgelord because he appeals to the general edgelord audience. Ironic how you're whining complaining about whining.
Grow up sperg boy.
>Hope you guys enjoyed your Tracer and Widowmaker fanart, cuz now it's just D.Va from here on out.
I did, and I'll sure be enjoying Korean Eva pilot. Shame best girl
Mercywill never get her turn in the spotlight after all this shit.
>all these buttblasted niggas thinking it's another flop
The fact that it has Blizzard plastered all over it means it will be the biggest thing ever. HoTS was an exception because LoL and Dota2 exist; HoTS tried to be a shitty casual version and failed. What's overwatch's competition?
Pretty much any foreign noise is automatically funny.
Skip to 50s. I lose my sides everytime.
What's overwatch's competition?
Aw come on I know you atleast smirked.
Don't be like that.
Oh fuck now I can't unsee it. [/spoiler]thanks[/spoiler]
If Japan opens the floodgates for Koreans, it will just be a province of Korea. Let's see if you'll be happy if your daughter is getting blacked and impregnated with a nog child just because there aren't as many whites in your area as their are blacks.
its really not
it leaves a bad taste in the fanbase's mouth and if they pull shit like this again expect more and more people to sour to it
if they keep doing it people eventually won't care anymore
like me. They won't watch the streams and they won't play the game because they were auto excluded from beta access due to not being free advertising even though they are qualified testers
this time sure
after the next xpac release and game releases where the only people that are getting invited are unqualified idiots who have little to no experience playing the game getting the xpac or playing games like the new one coming out people will stop watching and the game will actually lose hype rather than gaining it, losing much more than a few hundred players worldwide
if I were blizzard I would have looked for high rated tf2/cs players as well as other shooters and made sure to invite them. Then done lottery for all the remaining slots
Streamers and Youtubers shouldn't get any special treatment, in fact if it were me I would actively avoid them because I fucking hate them but thats bias. Most of all they they shouldn't have gone out of their way to give access to people who didn't even bother signing up for the beta simply because they were a popular internet personality and that has been proven to have happened in this case quite a many times. Disgraceful
I will only be playing this game if it is F2P and if it is I won't spend a dime on it
Overwatch looks fun BUT it's kind of getting that "meh" reputation from top streamers.
Step yo game up Blizzard-chan.
Fucking this. Most E-Celebs aren't even that good at playing games. DSP made a whole "career" out of being bad, even. If Blizzard wants this to be an esports thing, which I'm sure they do, then why are they letting the equivalent of booth babes promote the game?
>30k viewers on AVERAGE
>game devs watch him
>celebrities watch him
>rich niggas from dubai watch him
At one point the kid peaked at 100k viewers, ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE, watching him live in real time.
He's kind of a big deal and that's just one streamer.
>reminder that the backstory for one of the character is LITERALLY MILF BRAINWASHING NTR MINDBREAK CORRUPTION
I agree but I can relate to the streamers I frequent and I absolutely HATE people and networking in general.
But there are some streamers that are literally like me but just an e-celeb, no joke. So their opinion is kind of relevant to me.
The opinions of streamers on whether or not a game is good are even less relevant to me than the opinions of Muslims on how dirty pork is. I know that YouTube slaves take the opinions of their gods seriously, but I'm talking about people on /v/ here. Do the opinions of streamers really make the game better or worse for you guys personally?
First of all you're a homosexual.
Now the thing: Why give a shit about a team based shooter when you dont like other people?
You will have to deal with randoms and thats terrible.
Doesn't Blizzard want all of their shit to become esports? I mean, they even have WoW PvP tournaments, something that took a month of preparation at the very least as the barrier for entry.
Because I'm literally that badass lonewolf everybody looks up to because I fucking carry the team.
Guaranteed I can get 100 Play-of-the-Game highlights in rapid succession.
And no I'm not a homosexual.
I think WoW PVP tournaments are hosted on special servers, so you dont actually have to grind gear for it.
There might also be cheap ingame gear that only works for unranked matches which could be used for tournaments.
But yeah, Blizzard hasnt properly pushed WoW in esports for a while now. Last time it was in TBC I think and it flopped.
Dont know about HOTS esports, havent heard anything about that.
Hearthstone looks like a fluke that they didnt even plan.
I mean, I could clearly imagine Overwatch becoming Esports, I just dont know if they actively aim for it.
>implying this game won't have the skill ceiling of a reader rabbit game
you won't be able to carry anyone, the skill ceiling will be so low everyone will look like they're amazing players
>Dont know about HOTS esports, havent heard anything about that.
They actually put it on ESPN. Video game competitions on TV in the US is practically unheard for, so they were pushing hard.
>want to see footage of actual matches
>have to put up with cancerous Twitch comments and uninteresting live commentary
Oh well, guess I can just put it on full screen and mute.
I bet you even have a coat hanger filled with fedoras you fat neckbeard.
I don't care if a game has a limited skill ceiling.
I literally BREAK the skill ceiling in any game I play.
have you been living under a rock?
Blizzard throws millions upon millions of dollars at each of their games to create e-sports scenes, they know that that's the best advertisement, showing people that if they buy their game and try really hard and play it all the time maybe someday they too can be famous and get a lot of money and attention
overwatch will have major Blizzard funded tournaments with prize pools that dwarf even ESL, mark my words
>twitch streamer master class cracking jokes about how we cant play
Hey! It's called "Onlywatch", get it? Because you can only watch it! AHHHH HA HAAAAA!
Because my dick ain't wet yet. You ever have a girl just forcefully pull that shit back without lube?
Let's just say she is never allowed to put her hands near my fat cock ever again.
>he gets proven wrong
>suddenly i'm trolling
What? I bet you think pub stomping makes you good.
Q up for a Overwatch match right now pussy, I'll fucking see you in game.
BUT BUT THE TERRANS HAVE BIG ARMOR NEVERMIND THAT THEY ARE IN NO WAY SIMILAR TO THE IMPERIUM IN ANY WAY
DURR ZERG ARE BUGS LOL
PROTOSS ARE....ELDAR I GUESS? OOPS THEY ARE NOTHING ALIKE EITHER REKT
When you're an epic gamer like me you literally don't have time to recover the juice when fangirls are always wanting a taste.
Overwatch will just generate more juice loving fangirl succubi.
Reminder that Tyranids looked like pic related until Starcraft was released, and then suddenly got redesigned to look more like their current look, which is basically a hydralisk with some more organic armor slapped onto it.
remember that 40k has Imperium, Eldar, Tyranids, Tau, Necrons, Dark Eldar, Chaos and tyranids are the only remotely similar race to SC and are still incredibly different
>inb4 the gross generalizations.
You can still get one.
Just buy a blizzcon ticket for just 29.99! Kappa
most people will draw comparisons between natural japs and plastic koreans but imo, koreans usually have sharper eyes and more pronounced noses. Their ideals of beauty are different so the popular koreans will have more westernized beauty with strong v-shape faces and high cheek bones versus japs with rounder cuter faces
its because Fighting games usually base their designs off real fighting styles and how they look according to their nationality usually or the general theme of the fighting game itself
mobas base their design on after thoughts
Backpedalling are we now, 40kuck
>rest of races
Those were just copied over from Warhammer.
>twitch viewers indicate a games worth
wipe this meme from the earth
people are asspàined because they want to play the fucking game, the first day of the beta it was 120k viewers I think
they are bored of watching faggots with facecam play the fucking game
I hope this game doesnt suck
PLEASE It looks super fun
I am perfectly fine with this turn of events
TF2 is just to dated, and filled with underages
i just bought an youtube account with 30k subs for 50$ years ago.
wrote to blizz that i joined this and that network, would like to revive channel with overwatch coverage and bla
actually got my access
60% of the time, it works everytime
You mean Blizzard devs? I'd love to play against them to be honest. I don't get how you can get salty when playing against someone better. That's usually the best way to learn to play.
What you mean that one big bitch?
Shes just a diverse character
I would much rather have characters like this than get characters like Dota 2 (70% of the roster is a purple monster)
Yeah it was hilarious. They'd go from stomping pubs then run into the blizz team and get curbstomped. The best parts were when the devs were showing what the characters can really do like lucio being spiderman. Made the game look super interesting
>TF2 fags kept telling me the game was slow
>Pick up Tracer for a few hours
>HOLY FUCK ZIPPING AROUND REWINDING TIME AT THE SPEED OF FAST
Maybe I'll give this game a real shot after all.
Is it going F2P like TF2?
I enjoyed watch Quake pro's streaming. It was pretty clear that they can outaim almost everyone else, but they didn't really take skills into account as much, mostly focusing on aiming only.
It was fun seeings them slowly 'grasp' the mechanics
>face like a man with fetal alcohol syndrome
>better make up for it by getting badly made, grossly disproportionate tits
>people still give her money to badly play casul shit
truly, humans are the worst
I think the safe bet is that it'll be free with some characters locked behind an in-game currency paywall and cosmetics locked behind a real paywall, like in HotS. I don't think they've actually said yet though
>Do you really expect a detailed exposition when it's a character based on the grim reaper?
