How's it feel, anon, to be so invested in a lie you're manufacturing.
Played for 2 days now.
It's exactly TF2 except every character has a stupid OP ultimate and tanks put giant stupid fucking walls that you can't shoot through taking all the fun out of the fucking game.
Will probably drop it within a week.
Instead of using their other characters like the japanese guy and brown sexy lady, they make tumblr incarnate to say how progressive they are, those fags don't care about representation of minorities and diversity, they just want to be included.
It's going to be a huge financial success and a moderately lasting one at worst
all the stuff that /v/ hates about it are all the things casuals love about it and casuals are what carry most games
>Tried to appeal to SJWs for and SJWs still don't like it
SJWs don't play games mate, they're a vocal minority
>casuals are what carry most games
Publishers WANT casuals to carry things
Casuals can't carry shit for a short walk
Why do you think they have to release the same(or worse) game with a new coat of paint every year to keep the casuals attention focused?
It is already crashing, and the publisher will learn nothing
Hell destroying demo's while simultaneously concocting false limitation like beta keys, while STREAMING exists basically guarantees that most people will drop it once the e-celebs move onto the next thing
>Tried to appeal to SJWs for and SJWs still don't like it
Do you realize you're going to have to say this about every future game? Every developer who has ignored "SJWs" up to this point will eventually start caring about minority representation, because including minority characters is free PR and not including them has the chance to start a shitstorm. A real one, not "perpetually angry 4chan Nazis still angry".
>appeal to SJWs
I'm sorry, but with the enormous amounts of ass in this game I seriously doubt that. The pink-haired dyke was merely a bone thrown to shut people up, but nothing can contain the ass.
>game so casual it somehow makes the most casual fps tf2 look hardcore
I'm gonna laugh at all the tf2 fags when they cry casualization of the genre in a few years. Let them see how us arenafags feel.
>being a "pro" in a dead game
overwatch is trash, casual garbage. the people that still play quake just want to be relevant in the competitive gaming scene so obviously they would flock to overwatch. it's still a trash game.
Honestly I dont know why you guys complain about sjw shit in vidya, especially if it has no direct effect on gameplay or anything at all actually.
Zarya's a shit character anyway, and her existence doesn't immediately make the game an absolute flop because you don't like it. If I didn't know of the current issue of sjws on the vidya industry I would probably be confused as to which side is overreacting to the slightest hiccup. To summarize, quit being sensitive bitches just like the ones you actually hate. It's really fucking stupid to care so much about videogame character design (for a character that no one will play in the first place without sucking a huge chode).
>appeal to SJW
All waifus clearly aimed at heterosexual males.
Literally all WHITE cis males.
Be honest, lads, what were you going to spend that money on anyway?
>TF2 vets making the move to Overwatch
>A lot of quake pros playing
>Possible revival of team-based competitive that isn't some dumb fucking MOBA
can't you assholes let me be happy for once
f2p game with low barrier for entry with easy access for children and third worlders that don't communicate very well with everyone else + a format where matches can take over 30 minutes + volatile mechanics where a few mistakes can cost you a whole game = a massive shit storm, to say nothing of the general rule of thumb that comes with online games of any sort.
You know how in good first person shooters, guns are satisfying to use? They have weight and impact? This game does not have that. Fucking reaper has dual shotguns and he shoots them like water pistols. Even the revolver looks like garbage.
Well, people who watch overwatch on Twitch only watch the broadcasters they like... meaning if the popular broadcasters one day wanted to stream minesweeper, minesweeper will be the top game.
People like their broadcaster, not the game.
The problem with this game is the problem I have with all other non-TF2 shooters.
It's fucking impossible to tell team mates from enemies without red names over everyone's heads. So you're not looking at people, you're looking for red names.
You know they tell you who your enemies are before the match begins and the shots are a different color, right? Also, did you never play Unreal Tournament? That game also did the red/blue team color thing.
It's like they're retarded, why would they make a teamfortress clone, which is shittier by the way hero money/time unlocked. What a retarded company, fuck them.
Because people will still pay them money, and I have to wonder what it is exactly it cost them to make this if they just bought the company that made candy crush for 5.9bil. It seems at this point all they want to do is break even with their games and HotS and Hearthstone have "just enough to make a profit" written all over it.
I would be more excited to play this game if Optimus Prime voiced the gorilla.
Fuck this game is coming out after I'll already have a shitload of new games to play. If it was coming out this year I may have given the game a shot.
Approximate release date - June 26, 2016
Widowmaker skin with Preorder.
Not sure if it's been posted here or not, though.
My point is that for the amount of effort they put into those games, they have made their money back and more. It seems to be the trend with these latest releases, especially With those games and the last WoW xpac.
>not giving all your heroes for free from the very start
>not just selling cosmetics
When will companies learn?
They fucked up with the beta. Too many people got too disappointed about not entering.
What is really asinine is that they are teasing new content to be revealed during BlizzCon as though this is already a game that a lot of people are already able to play. And some of the Blizzard idiots (not in the beta) are just eating this stuff up.
Back when I started playing LoL there were less than 40 hero's, and you could play all the heroes with the free hero rotation in 4 weeks. I thought it was a sweet deal, and that they would increase the free hero pool as they added more. How wrong I was.
Not the same anon, but it's been a long time since I have had to buy runes in LoL, but I still think it's bullshit that there is this grind-gate before you can become prepared for competitive/ranked, even after you his level 30.
So what IS the model going to be? I heard a week ago it was going to be f2p with a heavy lean towards weapons and cosmetics like TF2.
And now i'm hearing people saying it's going to be a pay to game with characters you need to buy? So what is it?
Also the way they're handling the beta is retarded.
I really do like it, I played League well before ranked matches were even a thing all the way up till the end of season 4. I had a lot of fun with LoL, but HotS is so much more chill. I mean, yeah you still run into the occasional assholes and retards but it's not nearly as bad and the matches are over a lot quicker.
ITT: People basing their arguments around the 20k fedora neckbeards, that have the time (and self-hatred) to watch twitch streams.
Good. Should keep 90% of /v/, reddit and Brasil/Russia out of the game.
>only one person on my friends list has gotten in to the beta
>it's some random guy from hots /vg/ thread who I added months and months ago randomly, who only played hots for like 5 days anyway
>doesn't own any other games
>only logs in like once every few months
>see him play two matches of overwatch and then log off
>have not seen him on since
Great thanks blizz. real nice selection system you've got there. meanwhile I own collector's editions of every blizz game , have had a on and off wow sub since vanilla (mostly on) ahve spent about $150 on hots and hearthstone combined. I am logged in to bnet, online and active all day every day. but no, you're right the guy above will be a far better beta tester than me.
All the well known streamers who streamed overwatch are at blizzcon atm so they won't be streaming for a few days. It'll pick back up though. Idk if you guys know how twitch works but people watch for the streamer not the game mostly
>t-t-they're not pandering, stupid sexist!!!
Yet they release statements on how they want to diversify their character roster in time with the butch pink-haired woman and also say things like "We hope you will like it".. Hmm, hope who will like it I wonder?
Seriously, stop being so delusional. Is putting minority characters in to a game SJW pandering? not really. Is making a big deal and lots of press about it pandering? Yes.
All they want is political points, they don't give a fuck beyond that.
>worried about slavs digitally infecting your servers
>not the muslims physically infesting your nations
Those are some priorities anon.
>no fucking beta invite
>after blizzcon, they announce pay2play preordering where you get some shitty fucking skins and characters unlocked when you buy the game for FUCKING 40 US DOLLARS
>all the early beta players get a shiny medal
>you get the fucking faggot goyim medal
>meme fortress 2 is shit compared to OW
Its like you are implying that that is a bad thing.
>give him fuckhuge HP
He has normal HP.
McCree is a glass cannon, he has no defensive options outside of a shit roll and can't heal or block damage. He also has shit mobility.
Literally get gud.
I have one gripe with Mccree and that is that despite having great damage at a distance he is also very lethal in close range with Flashbang and secondary.
So when you gap close him you can very well die in a second if you are careless.
And if he misses the burst he can roll to get it back.
Compare this to widowmaker where you can just shove your gorilla cock in her ass once you get up to her or bastion, torbjorn.
Mccree is very dangerous to gap close. Of course I am basing this on using Winston which doesn't have good burst and a fat ass hitbox.
Not saying he is OP, but it isn't as simple as "just rush him".
And I cannot understand how people die to high moon, do they play without sound?
The blunder of the century is people like you whom keep comparing it with TS while it doesn't even overlap for the vast fucking majority of features dimwitted fucking dumbass motherfucker.
I hope this game eviscerates TF2's community and siphons the playerbase out of it in Oversnatch because I'm fucking done with Valve and their lazy asses. Sure Blizz is a bunch of money grubbing assholes too but if this takes off there will finally be competition for a casual online shooter on the market which means Gabe will have to step it up and make games or good content again or watch one of their first primary sources of income besides Steam and Dota become a dusty ghost town juuuuust like Dustbowl.
I can't wait for all the emotionally charged responses from all the polycount bronies still living in that dead game.
>>Tried to appeal to SJWs for and SJWs still don't like it
Wait, how did it try to appeal to SJWs?
If you don't know, you're one of them, anon.
Honestly I just want it to be above average. I don't care if its great, but now that tribes is dead I just want a decent multiplayer fps that I can play with friends that at least has some imagination. I can't stand CS:GO or any game with realistic weapons. It just feels so boring, I want interesting guns and shit.
Why must all good FPS have tiny communities.
