New Hero D.Va announced
New Hero Mei-Ling Zhou teased
Overwatch is a first person shooter made by Blizzard. The closed beta is live but you aren't invited.
>Overwatch Game Data Spreadsheet
>list of /vg/ battletags (post yours in the thread if you want to be added to it
>he still hasn't gotten his Overwatch PS4 preorder in
Give me two reasons you don't play the definitive versions of shooters, /d2g/.
I just really enjoy flying behind people, grabbing my pistol and popping a Reaper mid air. All that mobility + her pistol is just too fun. I don't find her boring at all.
Her pistol isn't strong, but in a teamfight you can use your dash to have stupid mobility while shooting niggers.
POP POP WATCHIN MOTHERFUCKERS DROP
yes im late
no i dont care
Publishers usually have policies against it. Microsoft is entirely against it, Sony relents in a few cases like FFXIV, Nintendo is irrelevant in that field. Playing controller versus KB+M sounds like a nightmare anyways.
>No Single Player mode
>Multiplayer team based shooter only
Tracer is a pure pixie goddess.
>already rated by the ESRB
>shirts on Blizzard store have 21 heroes, presumably the final launch roster if they're putting it on merchandise
>boxes in stores already
release next month to be hon fammie
Reminder you can get in within a day in two ways:
Add a few random tf2/csgo videos on your youtube, use free sub services to get around 1000 subs, optionally viewbot videos to thousand or more views then send a mail to the guy in the picture
Have a "tf2 pro" that was invited early with the rest to have you invited by simply telling their blizzard friends, either be a friend or a friend of a friend and just ask your way through
First one is really easy
real talk, who is this?
you're a hard gay bro.
hopefully the successfull and booming Overwatch e-sport scene will have charismatic, great casters.
Just like dota.
How come Torbjorn is C? Is he really that shit?
>tfw nobody ever talks about balance of my husbando COD man 76
>tfw it means he is fine or UP
>tfw he can only be buffed
you ever see some bitch with Tracer's hair irl you let me know because that fucking head gotta smell like straight product.
anime conventions and wigs don't count either fagbag.
>charging sixty bucks for a multiplayer only shooter
unless they fucking surprise us with a single player mode tomorrow (Blizzcon starts tomorrow right?), this is a fucking terrible idea.
if only we had a beta to play
Why is it a terrible idea? Why does a shitty tacked on single player mode need to be made in order for a game to be sold for 60? The meat of any fps is the multiplayer. No one cares about single player shit anymore.
Looks like a bottle of gel. Not really hard with the whole cartoony style.
Because sixty bucks for a fucking multiplayer shooter with no depth apart from balance and rankings is a massive ripoff. MMOs get away with it because they include narrative, and social interactions along with the package, Overwatch is a fucking team shooter. I know this is a Blizzdrone thread, but this is fucking ridiculous.
You're charging the consumer sixty dollars for a one dimensional experience. Overwatch as it stands now should be forty dollars max.
>PC fags thinking they're entitled to sub-retail price games
o i am laffin
HOW FUCKING DIFFICULT IS IT TO USE SOME FUCKING HAIR WAX AND THEN APPLY A THIN COAT OF SHINE AFTERWARDS
JESUS FUCKING H CHRIST WHY DOES EVERY FUCKING COSPLAY DRENCH THEIR HAIR IN WALRUS JIZZ TO TRY AND GET THAT EDGY SHAPE WHEN IT'S THE TEXTURE THAT'S IMPORTANT AND YOU CAN'T GET THE RIGHT FUCKING TEXTURE IF YOU SHOVE YOUR HAIR INTO A VAT OF PASTE.
GEL IS EVEN WORSE BECAUSE IT'S CRUNCHY AS FUCK WHEN IT DRIES, SHINES LIKE SOMEONE LATHERED YOUR HAIR IN LIP GLOSS AND THEN FLAKES OFF LIKE THE WORLDS WORST CASE OF DANDRUFF AT THE SLIGHTEST TOUCH. NO ONE SHOULD FUCKING USE GEL EVER AGAIN IN THEIR LIVES. THIS IS NOT THE FUCKING 90'S. JESUS CHRIST.
HAIR WAX OR POMADE. NONE OF THE JIZZ SHIT. AFTER YOU'RE DONE STYLING IT, LIGHTLY SPRAY SHINE ON IT. HOW FUCKING DIFFICULT IS THAT.
>TF2 goes f2p
>everyone goes apeshit about valve ruining the game
>"another f2p cashgrab with locked content, thanks for ruining everything blizz"
>overwatch is actually one time buy to play
>"aaahhhhhhhh, why one must pay for things, blizzdrones will defend this bullshit"
I'd prefer if there was at least small paywall for a while, though with the different server system and matchmaking it might not be as bad.
All of the TF2 Pub servers that actually had good players compared to most that I knew of got eventually flooded by F2P and the communities just died.
>dead game within a year.
more like 2 months
just look at Titanfall and Evolve
He's really fun to play. I don't think he's that bad.
>Buy beta access for $60 next week
>Current beta circlejerkers and lucky people get it all for free
Would you be upset?
I would be fucking furious and most likely not buy anything at all and probably not even play it. It would be the ultimate cukcing
>Only 2 extreme options fallacy
Oy vey. Though realistically you're just shitbaiting for shits'n'giggles because you can't play and you're bored.
she nailed that long chin on those terrible statues
>Implying there will be any wave soon after they have 100k beta testers in each individual region
It's going to take months, and if there is any wave, it'll be a PR wave, not a real wave, in other words they'll just give about 100 invites so redditors won't start giving them bad PR.
Haha, this game is going retail?
Everyone expected free to play and planned on playing with their friends, good luck getting groups of people to drop 60$ on a MP only game they're not even sure they'll like.
Blizzard looking real stupid right now.
I'm more willing they're betting on doing a "spruced up" version of the League of Legends retail version way back when it was first released and wasn't massive.
Some cosmetic shit, maybe some emotes etc, early / beta access. People have talked about purchasable heroes being no-go since it'd fuck with the balance for new accounts but I wouldn't put it past Blizz.
Reminder the game wont go for less than 60 bucks, mostly knowing its gonna be the price for console babies so it wont differ much for PC
Nice seeing Blizzard fucking up another promising title, fucking retards.
>wipe entire enemy team as reinhardt
>play of the match is a supporter healing me while I get those kills
>dont even receive commendments
gamestop bro here
overwatch will be on next gen consoles, and you'll be able to preorder it soon
our systems say december of next year, but i doubt that's accurate and is just a place holder for a real street date
it costs 59.99 to preorder
With the whole "Origins Edition" shit and seeing how they are already selling the starter bundle of HotS in retail shops, I don't understand how they'd change from succesful F2P formula they already have with HotS and HS and suddenly do a pay2play game
Im so hoping they just do cosmetic shit microtransactions, but Blizzard can fuck this game up by jewing it... fuck me so much, I was so hyped for this, I guess I will just hve to go back to comp tf2
>60 bucks for this shit
game is dead on arrival, gg we had a fun salty waifu threading run owg
see you on the other side
anyway 60$ is way too fucking much, what could possibly be in there? some figure?
I hope trustful people sell the keys online for way less, if they are actually going to sell retail founder packs or something
>Implying I'm a healslut
Nigga move out of the way I got a pistol
yeah and charging out the ass for entry not only wards off the fucking riff raff, but it wards off anyone with have a brain. Leaving you with fanboys and dipshits.
Can't charge nothing, can't charge too much.
I had a lot of games played before I decided to transition to best Mercy :^)
It's going to be the retail version of the game just like was done with LoL and HotS etc.
Though I'm sure there's going to be a few extra goodies to justify the product being on shelves it's unlikely to be that much.
Download only titles don't take off like they do on PC on consoles - the console crowd likes box copies of shit so it makes sense that if OW is coming to PS4 + Xbone that there would be a "enhanced edition" retail copy with some superfluous shit for retail exposure.
>Only reason Overwatch is even in the top 10 games on twitch right now (during its "traditional" PR stunt beta) is because Forsen is streaming it, getting less than 1/2 his normal viewers
We're looking at a HotS 2.0 here, senpai.
I dont care, HotS amount of viewers would be good.
I don't want HotS2, I want TF3 with more viewers. I want a team ""quake like"" FPS game to be relevant, and I'm very happy to see old quakelive, tribes ascend and tf2 players trying this out
And if Blizzard prices this AT FUCKING $60 I feel like the game will never take off like it should. It should be around 15$ and then add a fair cosmetic microtransaction system, like CS:GO.
Jesus, fucking unsubscribe from NFL.com already dude. What the fuck.
of course it isnt, but it has got same gamemodes (CPattack/defend and payload) and with quake I just meant deathmatch shooter, like with rocket launchers and promoting movement, not like cs or cod, kinda retarded to say it like that ye
ye i hope it isnt tf3 because tf2 is fucking ded.
>taking fantasy tips from a fucking tripfag
Yeah right, lemme just start Ameer and bank on Johnny Football throwing to TB a bunch tonight too.
I'm not paying sixty dollars for a multiplayer only game. This is fucking stupid.
Who the fuck is going to play that?
Had a story mode, Spartan Ops, and multiple different multiplayer match types
Had story content, however shitty it was, had PvE and PvP content, had loot system and social systems in place.
Yeah right because Titanfall was so wildly successful and not at all a cautionary tale for Overwatch.
Whoever posted this should feel legitimately bad about being so stupid.
Look at the box in the OP. That's what you can pre-order for 60 bucks right now. Do you think there's more than a disk in there? Do you think they'll sell a version with less content for less money? Let's all put on our thinking caps for a minute here and wait until we get more facts.
#1 in my league baby beau
If it does the sixty dollar pricetag will be worth it, but there is no indication that it is the route Blizzard is taking with this IP. If they prove me wrong, i'll happily eat my words.
Until then, this is stupid.
>Only invite pros like Dyrus, and big streamers like Forsen and Summit
>Viewers already fucked
Nice "traditional beta" lads
oh shit senpai
of course they're promoting their event in social media? but they aren't saying they give out betas with it
do you realize that if they said that they'd sell way more? are you retarded? do you think blizzard wouldnt want that?
tbqh i think they calculated it like "it will have a lot of nostalgia appeal to these 20 somethings that used to listen to linkin park back when they were edgy brooding 12 year olds"
don't worry kiddo they'll be selling online tickets throughout the event and this way they can get big gaming sites to mention the fact that beta access is included in the ticket when everyone is doing their write ups for the panels
How about no live music performance at a conference for video games, the fuck is this Spike TV?
>Mercy is undisputed best healer, one of the best characters in the game period
>Lucio is breddy gud but still outclassed by mercy, speed isn't good enough to warrant over her
>Zenyatta's discord is amazing but you have the downside of inferior heal, tiny health, slow speed, and no offense. Literally everything but discord is shit and discord isn't good enough to make up for this crap.
I think Mercy should be toned down but the issues with support is that everyone is so much worse.
>linkin park is still a fairly popular band nowadays
are they really? i don't think i've heard of them in a looong time
can't actually remember the last time i heard of them prior to reading this post about them being at blizzcon
Entirely wrong. First of all, the tier list needs to be two lists, one for ATTACKING and one for DEFENDING
Secondly, the categories should be ESSENTIAL and NON-ESSENTIAL with Sniper, Mercy, McCree being ESSENTIAL for both ATTACK / DEFEND, then various other tweaks, maybe even a third category called NEVER EVER with Bastion, Soldier 76, Tjorbajorbajam, and arguably Roadhog
That's of course assuming we're talking competitive 6vs6. The only essential heroes in a pub are Mercy and two Tanks
>game is about to come out/in 'beta'
>can't even pull 10k viewers before blizzcon
>even after giving access to the 'top' twitch streamers who all moved on after a couple of days
it's over. blizzactivision is going to be shutting down the servers after this. year
>make an easy game appealing to the casual audience that plays games like tf2 and league
>don't make it free
what a blunder
Don't forget you have to make those tier lists for every map, and then more tier lists for every map both attacking and defending depending on the skill level of your teammates.
Zenyatta's heal has the benefit of you pocketing somebody without being a tethered bitch, and it also has a significantly longer cast range compared to Mercy and Lucio's heals. Seriously from what I've seen Zenyatta can drop a heal on somebody from about 50 metres away. Lucio has to be right on top of his team and Mercy's tether is about 10 metres.
Anyone here wanna be my big tank who I can be a good little slave for? I promise I'll keep you refreshed and taken care of...
I've heard that enough to justify moving her up but a lot of people are torn on Tracer A vs. S.
Skilled Tracers definitely operate in S tier but most players aren't at that point and place her in A.
>get paired with this faggot
>bitches over mic about his strategy and how he believes the game must be played
>get put on the other sides
>probably a bunch of bros
>tell them about the autist on the other side
>everyone laughs and we stomp with our superior skill
LOL. You'll be shitting your pants and yelling at your team the whole time. You're a joke m8. Whats your battletag? When this game has ranked i'm gonna look you up and see how bad you are.
Just make the ninja an Eyelander Demoknight
>immunity to traps and stun
>some sort of mobility option
>some or all of his health is shields
>becomes stonger the more kills he gets
>weak to projectiles
Good luck, I can use a different Mercy trip for every post :3 I got 100's
No, don't don't do that. That's the reasonable response to shitposting. The only way you can show tripfags who's boss is by challenging them directly and taking their bait. That really shows'em!
the Origins edition on consoles is $60, it's going to iinclude some extra content of some sort, but it's probably not enough to justify the price unless it's a collector's edition in which case those are always overpriced
the base model on PC will cost less though any amount of money up front will hurt the game
come on Blizzard f2p with a shit ton of cosmetics it's not that hard of a concept to grasp
I'm headed to GameStop right now, it's about 10 minutes away. I'll report back with pics if this actually works out.
Doesn't look like a CE then.
Founders pack seems much more likely now.
Literally 1 post above you already stated that it's in store for 40 bucks.
i am okay with 40 but it should include more than just the game. if it include the beta access i say that fair but 40 dollars just for the game at launch and nothing else is kind of shitty.
This better not be real. I'm more than willing to drop 40$ if it means I'd have beta access, but prepurchasing an entire game that I won't be able to play for (at most) 7 months, just for an ugly skin? Blizzard must be out of their collective minds.
Okay so the Origins Edition isn't just a bunch of free skins along with the base game
so what the fuck is it
>Ugly as fuck skin
>No progression system in the beta and even if it had it's stated on the FAQ that nothing from the beta will carry over to the release version.
Nah, i'm pretty happy waiting for my invite. Only autists trying to for muh esports have a reason to buy this shit
It's not a founders pack like i thought.
CE seems unlikely cause it's just a fucking code for your battle.net
Maybe it's base game + several skins + Noire(lol) WM if you pre-order.
HOW IS THAT NOIRE?
HOW DO YOU FUCK UP NOIRE?
ALL YOU DO IS DESIGN SOMETHING LIKE IT CAME FROM AN AMERICAN 60S DETECTIVE SHOW
THAT IS LITERALLY ALL YOU DO
EVEN MARVEL GOT THIS RIGHT WITH FUCKING SPIDERMAN
They're jewing really hard for this shit. I hope they release more maps and game modes, because right now that shit is worth 30$ at best, and i'm really stretching here.
Also what this guy said >>121410425
If they won't have a beta open for the majority of the time between now and release, it's pretty stupid.
I'm guessing this santa Torbjorn is one,it's pretty well thought-out
here's hoping the other skins are just as nice and that that WM skin was something they just slapped together to fill gamestop's contract
>They're going to start doing stupid skins
Please God no.
Why build up this fucking world of global fear, of robot rebellion that turned into uneasy peace, only to shit on its face with fucking stupid outfits that don't fit?
Reminder that Overwatch news will be dropping at 4:45pm PST tomorrow.
id you honestly think for even a second that they wouldn't start shilling cosmetic trash like TF2 did and then every single MOBA ever? It was inevitable.
>Two characters gameplay revealed
>Added to beta over the weekend
Won't happen, but I want it.
>New cinematic trailer revealed
>Single player announced (maybe something like Spartan Ops even, i'll take what I can get)
>Rules of Nature announced and shown
>none of these things will happen
>he unironically wears video game shirts in public
Godamn it, tomorrow feels so far away now and the end of the weekend even further. I want that godamn key.
And before someone asks, no we don't know a whole lot about those characters right now.
Dota 2's cosmetics have been mostly okay, they release some stinkers every now and again but they always stick to the game world.
Hell one of the best Dragon Knight sets that came out relatively recently is just a more grimdark version of his default look, people loved it.
Why wouldn't they add in Mei and D.va right away?
They're clearly going to be announced, unlike Ninja (maybe), I don't see why they wouldn't just let the few dozen people with beta play the build with them in it
>Finaly some news is brought out.
>Finaly have something to talk about that isn't >TFW NO BETA ;_;
>"Why aren't we talking about Hanzo"
Take a wild fucking guess why we aren't discussing your husbando.
>Single player announced
>It's multiplayer with bots but with cutscenes after every victory, just like fucking BRINK
Also i really need to replace my pepe images with others that conveys the similar messages, but apparently 4chan didn't find a dank meme to replace pepe yet.
He's very good if the player is as well. Fully knocked arrows do hueg damage and are very quick. Scattershot can clear entire rooms just as well as other hero's ultimates + the radar arrow is great.
His ult doesn't kill much but it can clear points well.
If widowmaker wasn't so fucking broken he would be a pretty good player.
It was a leak from IMDB, they added 2 voice acters for both D.va and Genji. At the time we didn't know shit about D.va. Rulesofnature had been shown alot so it's pretty a solid guess that he is Genji.
>Hype already dying
>They think people are actually still going to fucking care 7 months from now
GameStop pre-orders were sent to stores today and whenever that happens you see tons of leaks.
Happens everytime they get a new, hyped game. Expect the same thing for FO4, BF, etc.
You mean 16:30 right?
legitimate question, i can't into timeszones all that well.
Some fucksticks at gamestop spilled all their spagethi and put up OW stuff too early. It was suposed to be in store tomorow. Then they fucked up some more and actually sold their merch to someone who posted it on plebbit.
hey boys, lets guess how much the stock game will cost.
what do you want?
beta access is going to be taken away in december
if you get in now, you have literally 3 weeks to play before they take it away and you have to pay 60 bucks to play again when they realease it in spring
>Origins Edition Includes:
>5 skins: Blackwatch Reyes (Reaper) Strike-Commander Morrison (Soldier: 76) Overgrown Bastion Security Chief Pharah Slipstream Tracer
>Overwatch-themed content for several Blizzard Entertainment games: Heroes of the Storm™ - Tracer Hero World of Warcraft® - Baby Winston Pet StarCraft® II Portraits Hearthstone® Cardback Diablo® III - Mercy Wings
>i need you to do all the work for me because i'm a lazy little shit
umm no? the beta will most likely last until 1 or 2 weeks before release like with all other blizzard games.
it might become open at one point but they will certainly not close it a couple of months before release
If $60 for Origins Edition, then it is probably ~$20 for the game which is close to CS which is pretty decent.
All the heroes are confirmed unlocked and free for everyone to use from the start so no.
>thinking no one is going to post the leaked information in this thread.
What does that have anything to do with what I said? If that guy wants citations then he can find the leaks plus links to their sources above.
All he has to do is read the thread.
>A. This phase of the Closed Beta will conclude before the end of the year. We don't have an exact date to share at this time, but we'll be sure to provide testers with advanced notice.
it will NOT last until the release
it's going to end in december, and they will work on the game inhouse before shipping it in spring
Was wondering when that stuff would be leaked
Waiting on Pharah and Tracer pics for the final verdict, but thinks are looking pretty bad.
why would they have an open beta on a retail release game?
this isn't hearthstone you retard, and they're sure as hell not giving access to pc before consoles or the other way around
the shitstorm would be so fucking huge if pc got the game 6 months early
>Reapers identity confirmed as Reyes
>"We want to tell our story outside of the game"
>"And by that we mean have some shitty retailer leak plot points a day before our anouncements"
Reyes in the pic. That's what the skin looks like.
Tracer and Pharah are meh desu, overgrown bastion is the only cool looking one.
He was confirmed to be Reyes after the second trailer, he uses literally the exact same shotguns as Reaper. Apparently nobody in his universe has the brain cells capable of putting 2+ 2 together.
So Origins includes 5 (6 if you pre-order) skins in-game and a bunch of shit for other games for 40 bucks
seems like a fair deal, this still might mean the base game is f2p
that's what I meant
Even Blizzcon can't explain numbers that shit.
It just goes to show people only watched whatever their favorite streamer was playing, they didn't give a shit about the game lol.
He doesn't look black at all, post the whole pic faggot everyone in that image has the same skin tone almost. Are you the same retard talking about that image like he was ricking a durag?
All those unused/tossed aside betas
That still could have gone alot of ways though, maybe the dude was related, maybe Reaper stole his shotguns. It was never even confirmed that the shotgun fellow was Reyes in the first place. It still left some speculation.
Now they've confirmed all of it trough some shitty British retailer.
At this point, there is no shame in visiting reddit. Blizz made us into mind-broken redditor sluts craving for that invite-dick and it's the most convenient place to get news about the game.
Human Reaper would be acceptable if he had a distinguishing design, but that and and young 76 are basically Soldier 74 and 75 skins.
>streamers and shit get in for free
>ill probably have to pre order to get beta access
>the game everyone wanted for 5 years
>fucked over by terrible business decisions
This trainwreck has no brakes
how angry will tumblr be tomorrow when they realize their black character is actually a latino?
Reyes does look different than young S76 if that's what you are saying.
They never really discussed the background story too much but I would place bets that Reyes IS Reaper.
It's not really that bad.
>get beta access
100ms is the maximum acceptable. Your best bet is playing support/tank heros like Reinhart, Mercy and Winston, but even then it will probably be shit.
The average reaction time is 0,25s, so you'll have an extra 0,25s on top of your individual reaction time, not to mention all the other effects like peeking and getting killed after hiding into a corner.
There are multiple ways this could turn out, and all of them would make me stop being interested in the game
a) aim assist only on consoles
-> means that if cross platform was enabled, you would play against people with slight aimbot, not acceptable
-> means that if cross platform wasnt enable, that tournaments would have hardly any players
b) aim assist on PC if you use a controller
-> game officially dead as a competitive title
c) no aim assist as all
-> game become borderline impossible on consoles since there isnt a single FPS that doesnt have aim assist (to my knowledge)
Whatever they do, making this shit multi-plat basically killed it for me. I dont have the slightest interest in it anymore unless they go for option c) which I simply cant see happening.
That really doesnt matter. You would fucking play against a guy who is being assisted by the program or else he wouldnt be able to hit shit. Which puts you at a disadvantage for no good reason. I dont give a shit if a Gold Nova CSGO player could own MLG winning pad player squads.
I doubt Blizz is retarded enough to make the game multi-plat, PC players would rape the shit out of console kids. Also they can simply have different versions of the game, having aim assist on consoles version but not on PC version.
On my little experience with aim assist, it works like a small magnet and can't even begin to compare with an actual mouse.
>But they said that this game was specifically made with esports in mind while hearthstone obviously wasn't.
They always say that though because anything less would be taken as them saying their game is casual shit.
