Please stop whining edition
Game is $40 on PC for all launch characters. $60 with some cosmetics on PS4 and XBONE. Blizz refuses to discuss post launch content at this point.
New Heroes (Added to Beta this coming week):
Overwatch is a first person shooter made by Blizzard. The closed beta is live but you aren't invited.

Th for if you pre-order this game while all this shady payment model business is going on you're a fucking blizzdrone and there's literally no excuse for buying a game pro-longed for another 6 months
>Please stop whining edition
fuck you nigger
whining solves fucking nothing you asshat. We all know jack shit until blizzard says something.
never even played literally any other blizzard game before, so i'm definitely not a blizzard fan. i'm just patient
They put her in that whole winter anti-blizzard
no pun intendedsuit except for her face?

I know they wanna attract the tumblr and waifu audiance but come the fuck on.
Also Google fuck off with your street signs you fucking shits, let me pick bread instead
Here's a list of auto-aims in Overwatch.
Soldier 76 ultimate
Winston primary gun
Symmetra primary gun & turrets
Roadhog chain (aim assist)
Here's a list of offensive effects or attacks which aren't auto-aim but you essentially cannot miss with them no matter how bad you are.
Bastion turret gun
Reaper primary guns
Tracer primary guns
Reinhardt primary melee
Zenyatta orb of discord
Additionally, almost every character has a skill that negates all positional mistakes. For example: caught on the ground as the rocketess Pharah? No problem, just press this easy button and you're instantly in the sky, where you're most effective.
Ran yourself into a bad spot as the fragile but swift Tracer? No problem, just press this easy button and you're instantly back where you were before.
Got caught in the open as the close-range slugger Reaper? Just press your invulnerability button and float over to a healthkit. You get this and many other movement tools completely free, there's nothing you give up for them, like sacrificing health with a rocket-jump.
The tools Overwatch gives you to solve problems are contained in a single, brainless button rather than a complex and difficult set of movements and/or offensive measures. The entire game revolves around identifying the correct rock-paper-scissors situation to press your button, then pressing it. There is no serious skill of any kind involved. You're going through the motions of what you think a video game entails.
The miniscule difference between a week-old Overwatch player and a year-old Overwatch player will be lost in the cloud of instakill ultimates, teleports and AOE abilities. This game is transcendentally shit, and there is no escape from it. This is the very profitable future of FPS. Hell. Population: you.

Whining helps, mostly on reddit but we do it here too senpai. Either way if they half the price and state clearly what they want to do with future hero's and content about everyone would be satisfied.
>implying blizzard will EVER visit /owg/
seriously. reddit is full of people whining, but they only ever pay attention to reddit anyways. if you wanna let blizzard know, do it on reddit. let's just actually discuss the game here
i think d.va isn't as good as everyone thinks she is, her gun's got a massive spread and her mech seems to die pretty quickly from watching ster's stream
How does this make you feel /owg/?
One in Five posters right now own Overwatch pre-order
and you don't.
Original and best poll:
>mfw I'm upboating every poorfag/ brazilian and ruskie post on reddit since yesterday
I walked out and preordered the CE yesterday for one reason: I like Busan.
Until we get beta access, all we have is shit posting
Mercy > Mei
You can't prove me wrong
I once masturbated to Dodger, now I feel ashamed and disgusted.
Mew characters are in the Blizzcon only version for now, some people may do limited streams from Blizzcon tomorrow.
They will be in the actual beta some time next week
>not being a loyal Activision-Blizzard consumer
>not pre ordering CE of every AB game
>not being a "Blizzard Gamer"
I bet you are a poorfag too
>people NTRing their true waifu
Maybe no betas is a good thing.
Where does it say anything about CE being sold out? All it says on the main site is "This version is not available digitally" and people are still getting preorders in on it.
tracer is a slut not a true waifu
Just out of curiosity since a friend was asking and I don't really know:
Have they definitely confirmed that the game is not F2P or is the base version just one where you get all heroes right away?
I thought it was the first but when I looked I couldn't really find any definite statement on it.
>Overwatch may be boring and shallow as an FPS game on account of all of the 'canned skill' abilities eliminating the impact of mechanical skill, but as a strategy game it's good! Just look at how many characters there are, and how many abilities! Surely that leads to good strategy gameplay.
Makes sense until you consider that Overwatch is trying to pretend it's an FPS game, not a strategy game. All of the ways in which Overwatch is different from other real time strategy games (the camera, the pace, the lack of resources to fight over) are flaws.
Let's consider Overwatch's strategy merit compared to another the-player-controls-one-unit strategy game like DOTA. Each player has ~3 skills and an ultimate, so there's parity there.
But the camera perspective isn't top-down, it's first person. This makes zero sense for a strategy game and inhibits the player's ability to get an overall picture of what's going on. The controls also make it impossible for the player to ever control more than one unit, like they sometimes do in DOTA.
There are no map resources to fight over - as a strategy game, the only strategic element is the win condition. You cannot have such a lopsided 'strategy' game ever be interesting by its strategic merit.
Overwatch is shit as either an FPS game or a strategy game.
>Watching Muselk yesterday

He could've raped the shit out of the blizzdrones there. How the fuck do you miss "eliminations gives you resets", it's the most important part of his kit aside from the ulti.

They will work on new heroes. I expect Overwatch to get an expansion like most other blizzard games. It will have enough new shit for people will lap it up and praise Blizzard for supporting the game.

This. I religiously played the UT, Quake, CoD up until MW1 and Battlefield series.
People just don't see this being any good compared to previous games, it's all a bunch of floaty particle spamming crap with overdesigned as crap characters designed at best for a couple of DeviantArt tier teenagers. That's why it should be F2P.
They did that with the fucking Field of View. I need help creating a new pasta to BTFO the blizzdrones.

depends on her how her wall interacts with things
imagine walling off when people ult and just completely countering them
you need your eyes check if you think that girl you posted is any good. there are better 3DPD to choose from and you chose a gnome that looks disgusting and can't jump due to her fat thighs.
here let me help you: Jenna Coleman
That's what most Asian girls' bodies look like. Mei is just a Westernized fantasy of an hourglass figure plastered on a Chinese woman, like some grotesque hug-pillow marionette.
Offense and Defense are your bread and butter and should make up the majority of the team, so more variety there is better. Also they translate to the FPS model far more easily than Tank or Support do.
I think she is sophisticated enough to have proper bathroom etiquette.
Just because she is blackish she is still cute and an intelligent woman.
Fuck stereotypes, love everyone for what they can do and what they are, not for what they inherited or what their race is.
First thing in the morning, what do I see? A pile of shit staring at me. I close my eyes, I step away. No matter where I go, there’s no getting away.
Take your poo to the loo. Take your poo to the loo. Take your poo to the loo. Take your poo to the loo.
Probably Soldier 76. He's a basic normie in a game full of weirdos and there's a lot of charm in that.
Bastion, maybe Hanzo. I'm not into waifuism but Mei is adorable.
Winston. Again, not into waifus but D.Va's such a hot little tramp and I love fighting robots so I'll probably try her.
Zenyatta. More like ZENyatta, am I right? Ha.
Reminder to blame this man for everything that's wrong
The question that someone needs to walk up to a microphone at today's panel and ask the devs is: does Hana prefer samgyeopsal or samgyetang?
>More like ZENyatta, am I right? Ha.
>implying that wasn't intentional
as for me:
Genji. I like his dash slice.
Hanzo, I like the scatter arrow but his ult is kinda shit.
Winston. Good to see more Winston mains around here, he is severely underrated but I think he looks the most fun.
Also, he is trained in gorilla warfare
Zenyatta. I like the fact that he's like Mercy with his orbs of harmony but he doesn't have to be right next to the person he's healing all the time. Also his melee attack is a fucking kick, and considering he moves like he does, i think that's pretty funny.
if you could buy an invite for the beta and the game would be free to play, or if you would get an invite by pre-purchasing, i would have gone for it.
but as it looks right now i'll never play this game
Her wall is really good. I don't know if you can throw the wall under you for surprise vertical mobility, but I think people aren't thinking of how you can trap and separate people with the wall.
I'm gonna agree with Soldier 76. The fact that he doesn't really stand out stands out on its own.
Junkrat. Mei a cute, though.
Zarya. Fuck that haircut, but my everlasting weakness for gravity guns wins me over.
HuewubwubnegroBR. I love music-based moves.
>I don't know if you can throw the wall under you for surprise vertical mobility
You can. Her preview video shows her using it under a friendly tracer and she can place it under herself as well to reach 2nd floors and such.
No, she's not obese. Let me guess, you think a sumo wrestler is fat as well right? Guess again, fuckers have a strict diet/training schedule that makes it so they have a protective layer of fat but still relatively thin and are all muscle underneath.
There's a difference between looking fat and actually being fat, it depends on your fat to muscle ratio.
Goes to show amerifats hve no idea how to deal with actual winter. Guess I shouldn't be surprised how you guys always shit your pants and have no snowdays and cancel flights because there's like an inch of snow.
These fucking priorities.
They expect people to pre-order and watch people who haven't paid for the game play it.
Most of the hype for this was riding on it being "free2play" or low cost buyin, therefore giving it the potential to be large and popular. It's a multiplayer only game and its full price, how of those have we had which have had player retention?
The game doesn't have a built-in fanbase, it's not a sequel. A guy I know who plays warcraft got into the beta, he played once and didn't like. He ain't gonna buy the game.
Overwatch isn't going to invent a mass of new players, it's going to have to take them from games like TF2 and CS:GO.
What were they thinking? That the hype would reach critical mass and that dropping this wouldn't matter?
Even fucking reddit upset.
>he disagrees, he must surly be an american
The wall and blizzard are reminiscent of Anivia, athough Mei's Blizzard being able to stun is different and in this game the wall of course offers vertical movement too. That said, Anviva was hardly the first to do "big AOE Blizzard that damages and slows". Ice Block on the other hand is like an ability of Winter Wyvern from Dota2 and her gun is pretty much it's own thing.
Since this appears to be a thing we're doing now
Tracer. I like the mobility she offers.
Mei too cute. I also have a fondness for ice powers and she seems like she'd be fun.
Roadhog. He's a selfish tank, but he's more disruption based than damage absorbtion.
Zenyatta. Don't need to sit up someone's arse, get to be a levitating robot monk.
>76's face revealed already
>He looks generic as fuck
also what the fuck why would you give him a long coat. Completely fucks with his silhouette.
>free2play, pay2win console port behind a 40$ paywall
I can see how a generic character like him is needed from a storytelling perspective. All this weird shit going on with gorillas, gravitation vortexes, swedish dwarves, etc. Someone needs to be the straight shooter with the assault rifle and square jaw.

I'm /in/, so my favorites are mostly based on how strong the heroes are, because I'm an autist that only has fun while winning.
McCree, doesn't have a weakness. Absolute beast of a hero. Can snipe from range, can flashbang+RMB for free kills. Ult makes you a sitting duck, but it potentially ohk's multiple people, so it's okay.
I feel like this category of heroes is quite weak in general and only useful for wallhacks from Hanzo/Widowmaker. But if I have to choose, it's:
Widowmaker. She's goodHanzo.
Roadhog. Self sufficient, easy kills.
Lucio. I don't play Support heroes, but movement speed from Lucio is very helpful when someone in my team plays him.
Anyway, with all the talk about "switching heroes to fit the situation" I was expecting something more. I can be McCree or Pharah in 99% of situations and easily outperform Defense heroes.
Tanks and supports are still needed though, obviously.
you dont want to see this then (reaper)
What you seriously thought there'd be anything interesting to look at when he was young? 76 is only cool when he becomes 76 to hide his fucked up face which you can see he has from the scar.
Also other way round, Reyes probably took Morrisons jacket
Also more OG Overwatch skins when?

>Mask is a skull

That's kinda the point, he's just some schmuck who worked for Overwatch
>WHO I AM ISN'T IMPORTANT
I can't believe they didn't go with maskless/younger Reinhardt
Phara's mom might be cool as a Widow skin but that would require new voice lines and blizz would be all >THIS IS TOO CONFUSING FOR NEW PLAYERS
This, basically. Though I could do without hats, just give us the full game for 50 or use Dota 2's model. Dota is making millions and it gives you all the characters for free.
Free future maps/heros/game modes. That's all they need to do, everything else is alright.
Make an actual open beta and/or free weekends every once in a while for the poorfags that want to try out the game and keep the playerbase growing or at least steady.
>Easy way to segment an FPS community if it's name isn't CoD or Battlefield.
It doesn't segment shit. Base game maps are always played most. If you want to play new maps you can do it too by paying a little money, it's just few different maps and not a big deal. There is no segmentation. New maps just have less active servers that run them.
So when Greyfox's ult is active, does he just automatically attack things near him and deal lods e damage, or does the player still control the actual attacks?
The former is beyond retarded but I wouldn't put it past blizzard at this point.
Player controls the attacks - You can still use skills while in the mode, you just swap your shurikens for highly damaging energy sword.
So you can spam that dash+bleed that refreshes every time you get a kill.
Hahahaha. Blizzard is seriously trying to sell a fucking online shooter for the price of a full triple A title. Not gonna lie, I was very hyped for this game, but now it's pretty much dead on arrival.
>Overwatch 60 bucks + paying for every hero/skin after that
>Hearthstone - 0 Buffs/Nerfs, shit cards that bring even more randomness and dont fix anything
>Heroes - 2 player meme hero. shit mm. casual moba - that hides new heroes behind hardcore paywall.
>WoW - 6 month= 0 content., SJW Sylvanas, we ASHBRINGER NOW
What went wrong?
It's literally not
If Overwatch was evolve, buying the 40 dollar game would give you 47, Winston, Mercy, and Widowmaker and you would pay 5 dollars to unlock the others, except you pay 20 for Roadhog because he's a
beta weekends will have stripped of content client
3 heroes 1 map
Multiplayer only games that aren't f2p are doomed to fail, especially with a 40+$ pricetag. If Blizzard is very lucky, Overwatch will be the next Rocket League, Smite or Chivalry, meaning people might play it on and off and it will develop a small, dedicated core playerbase. Worst case, it will be completely forgotten like Natural Selection 2 or Evolve. Either way, it will never be the next big thing like what Blizz were hoping for.
>League of legends model
Smite model is better,

>When competing against TF2
>When TF2 was 20 dollars
>When fucking nobody even gets into the beta to see if they like it
Well it's Blizzard, I don't know what I was expecting.
TF2's installbase came from the fact that it was sold with Half Life 2. It could afford to be 20 dollars.
Competing against TF2 at this point is like competing against the shortbus
I can live with the armor, it's fine even though it looks tacked on. Like they just colored in her belly with a brown marker and called it a day.
her face though? that's some ugly shit
It sure as hell won't become the same success it could have been if it was f2p with a cash shop for skins and other cosmetics. It no doubt will be a success and make them money, but they doomed it to be just that, a moderate / decent success that will make them money when it could have become the biggest online multiplayer shooter to date.
LITERALLY already seen him way before, as well as Reaper
There's Reinhard and Pharah's mom for you too

its ok it was probably the least exciting cinematic yet and also the most retared...lets FLY into a batte where the enemy artillery is literally ASTEROIDS THAT TURN INTO RAPE ROCK MONSTERS THE CAN DESTROY OUR PROPELLERS
Whenever I kill one of the waifus in the game I always imagine my bullets are orgasm inducing chemical darts and their death cries are actually mind wiping orgasms that leave them breathless for the respawn timer. Or orgasm inducing neuron pulses if it's an energy weapon.
Anybody else think like this?
I re-designed the Overwatch logo family
>again with the 'we don't want to confuse/overwhelm players'
So Blizzard assumes their fandom are idiots.
They must be right, people keep supporting this!
Hey guys a lot might know this, but it doesn't require a lot of brain to claim that this game will be fucking DOA unless they go open beta for pre-purchasing. Nobody on this fucking earth will play this game for $40 in 6-8 months. Absolutely fucking nobody. It will die like all those other hyped new fresh multiplayer fps games (titanfall, evolve, loadout etc), die within a fucking month or two.
Yeah blizzard is absolutely retarded especially marketing. They managed to create massive hype first week through streams, which slowly died off as people became tired of being teased to the point of being actually cukced by the invite circlejerk faggotry, that together with the plans they revealed at blizzcon has made a lot of people just fuck off and stop caring entirely.
Blizzard has literally only one option left right now to have just a CHANCE of saving this game, and it's going open beta for pre-purchasing. If they don't do that and actually wait nearly half a year to release this game that isn't even f2p, yeah, it's actually dead.
I'm out, enjoy being teased and cukced.
well rip belly, thanks a lot metzens daughter...
And don't forget yours truly, "game won't have microtransactions and shizzle" but doing it anyway.
Post yfw overwatch has no Bulgarian heroes. For shame blizzard.
Well, I'd like to think that I'm not, but I can see how people would say that I am (for a lot of reasons).
Anyway, here's the finished lineart. I know that some people might have been asleep when I delivered it in the AM last night so I figure it's worth one repost.
Uncensored at http://fav.me/d9fsmwa
she was only complaining about " bikini" girls it was metzen doing, but I think its just cover up for more sjw pandering
ouch ouch it hurts so much, those buzzwords!
If Overwatch were on Steam, where do you think it would be on full release?
With the current plans, it wouldn't even be visible on that page
It would have less than 10k players
you're expecting waaay too much
If it's releasing in 6 months it will die before that
