So, does the east coast get in before the other US time zones?

I hope matchmaking in large, but not full, groups gets better.

Go to Highlights in the main menu. Shows you your best plays of your recent games. I think it might get wiped when you exit the game though.

I wish you had your mic capturing so that video didn't seem like I was just talking to myself the whole time.

Kenzo has the Japanese voices enabled. That kid's actually such a fucking mess. He thinks it's a joke, but I don't find it funny at all.

And that's why it's funny. It's a gift that's already paid for itself and will no doubt keep on giving.

Hopefully they'll give you more options for custom games. Had the most fun just fucking around that last game waiting for other players to join. Don't want this game to get sucked into the Tryhard mentality of DOTA.

Matchmaking que for PvP was shit but hopefully they'll fix it or add lots of options for custom private games

Had a match yesterday where we had 5 Junkrats on our team and 2 on the other. Was pure chaos.

I understand that I'm guilty of acting mopey when an Overwatch match is going badly but losses in this game don't sting at all the way a loss in Dota stings. It's just my nature to be a pessimist.

Tried a bunch of heroes today. Reindhart was really fun despite being melee. Pharah is my favorite attacker for now.

Custom games can be really stupid with lots of mods. We spent 15 mins dicking around with all ability cooldowns turned off. Genji, Tracer, Winston and a bunch of characters were so Broken :lol:

I understand the maps aren't built for it, but I hope they implement the ability to increase the player limit in custom games.

It's probably less about map layouts and more about shit under the hood like netcode optimization, reworking the tab screen, or system parity and having the Xbox/ps4 versions being able to handle more than 12 characters onscreen at any given time.

I think the chances of us getting more than 12 people in a lobby at the same time is slim.

we need like 6+ more player slots in the lobby

Overwatch is a fucking hell of a video game.

If need be we could have two custom games going at a time with 8 players each. Every couple of rounds we switch around the people in each game.

This game is front runner for GOTY 2016

Splitting ppl up sounds like a bad time. The only thing that was good about TF2 was that it was like 20 people all cluster fucked in the same game + voice chat

Couldn't play much today because of obligations. But it didn't really *seem* like it was that big of a success when everyone quit playing after like a little over an hour. At least if you're using TF2 nights as your benchmark, where we'd routinely get people playing well beyond 10, 11pm est. Still, markedly better than most attempts to date. It'll be interesting to see if it can catch on tho, it's easy to get people to play when it's free.

Seems like it could be fun to play in-houses, but I think 1) ppl ought to frequently play skirmish game type, and 2) all folks involved limit their expectations for things like teamwork or getting objectives accomplished.

Only one more day of beta left, then we must wait a few weeks for the people that bought it. I've really enjoyed playing this game so far.
