I JUST now realized why I dislike TF2 so much but really like this game. This game is actually the closest successor to the old Xbox 360 Shadowrun FPS which was CRIMINALLY underrated. The actual objective structure is literally just TF2, but all the different powers you have to fuck with other players reminds me so much of Shadowrun, some of them are actually lifted directly from that game.

I was actually thinking of Pharah and Junkrat to help siege out well laid turret defenses when he was talking about it, as they seem the most analogous to the Soldier and Demo from TF2. Don't know if they have the damage to do it, especially if the Bastion is getting support heals and buffs or whatever.

As far as I know, there is no ubercharge equivalent to help push down turret nests/heavily fortified choke points. TF2 could get super unfun due to multiple sentries, but it had quite a few ways to counter them.

I wonder if there will be servers on launch, and if they will allow more than 6v6.

Lucio's ultimate is the closest thing to ubercharge I think. It gives every nearby teammate a HUGE but slowly decaying shield that basically turns your entire team into tanks for a few seconds. If you coordinate it well your entire team can bum rush a chokepoint and clear out any defense. Mercy's ult is an aoe revive, you could use to help sustain a push too. These are the kinds of thing I would attempt to coordinate with people were I not literally the only person I know in the beta.

Found the dev update where Kaplan says maps AND heroes will be free updates:



Again, no confirmation that there will be heroes, but just that they have ideas for heroes.

Pretty sure you just aren't ever getting in. Kaplan's on the beta forum every other day reinforcing their need to keep the beta small. I think it's going to be just me til the damn thing launches.

It's probably for the best. I'm limiting my play time cause I don't want to deflate my boner before it actually comes out. Also all this progress I'm making is getting wiped.

I'd say I honestly wish I hadn't gotten in the beta, but for the fact that the beta literally sold me a copy of the game. This would have flown right over my head had I not played it.

I dunno, it's a bit of a double edged sword at this point. I love being able to jump in to a game whenever I want, but I've got all this pent up excitement for it and I don't really have an outlet for it. I won't for 4 months too, which is the worst. I'm trying SO hard not to play it as much as I want but I'm still watching lots of videos, and streams every day. That sort of thing. I can't even take refuge at the Overwatch subreddit because it's floor to ceiling full of people buttmad that they aren't in the beta. This shit's fucking lonely.

Honestly, I'd just disengage and cut it cold turkey until other people can join. Half of the fun of new multiplayer games is having people to learn the game with and explore the game together and then talk about it. Getting such a huge head start on your amigos sounds so unsatisfying. An older, less wise me would be chomping at the bit and just solo queue, with no patience. But these days, I can rationalize it away and ignore it pretty easy, especially when I have a million other amazing things to do with my time.

I don't think the number will change between now and launch. There's 10 maps total. 2 or 3 of those are king of the hill style, which are basically the same for both teams, but the rest are all attack/defend or payload style, so they're basically 2 different objectives.

According to Reddit some invites went out today. I've seen people on GAF randomly joining over the last week or so too.

Well I guess a 2 month wait is better than a 4 month wait.

Also no cross-platform sucks, all because they dont' want the joystick master race to make pc gamers babyrage, be like screeeeee i'm a cancerous piece of shit raaaaaggggeeeee. Reason i hate fps with mouse is cause my sister eats at the fucking pc, so i got ants up the ass and sticky af pad and she wont listen to me, and the main reason is i do a lot of heavy lifting and i cant make little sudden movements without screen doing a 180 so i play at low sensitivity and for a game like overwatch with that brit chick ill get fucked up
