Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

At low diamond level at the end of the last season it was the win condition for so many teamfights. You literally lose the match alot of times if one team is running that combo and your not. Thats how u know its op.

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

The thing is its not so bad with other ults its just the hanzo ult. Like I said it also forces every team into picking zen. If you get a game where one of the support cant/wont zen while the other team is running the same combo with zen your toast. So basically lock in zen/hanzo/zarya or lose.

Alot of buffs and nerfs incoming. Fig that they would make some changes to grav. Glad to see snipers getting toned down as well. Cant wait for wrecking ball for sure going to be a new meta on the way.

I'm having a hard time not looking at his face. He's so cute.


The interaction between him and the mech is great. Some of the voice lines are awesome. I've really enjoyed the last three heroes that have been introduced: Moira, Brigitte, Hammond.

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

OW is impossible for me to watch and enjoy, and I know what's going on and can appreciate how hard it is to be good.

I have no one person, outside of Seagull, that I even know who they are.

That being said I'd bet this thing did great ratings wise.

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

Overwatch casting has improved a lot since it started. I actually spend more time watching than playing now.

Meanwhile I am 90+% Hanzo with sub 1k rating. When I Q, "long time to get a fair match."

I think they are trying to stay away from the Japanese anime trope animals.

Bunny/wolf girls ain't coming anytime soon (I hope.)

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

i think espn is really halfassing the tv debut if they are going to try and put a replay on. They should know that their viewers are just going to watch it live since they're trying to appeal to the internet generation..

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

Three new teams confirmed for Overwatch League Season 2: Paris, Guangzhou, and....ATLANTA. What are the chances a 40-something who hasn't played competitive mode in like 5-6 seasons and can pretty much only play supports (plus Zarya) with any sort of real competence could represent his home state?


That was rhetorical, btw.


There will be three more expansion teams, one from the U.S., one from Asia-Pacific, and one from Europe.

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

do these teams actually have to home-base in the region? or are they just arbitrary places to try and draw in spectators while everyone lives in LA or wherever?

Re: Overwatch (New Blizzard Franchise - FPS )

For now all the teams are in LA but the goal is for all teams to be actually based in their city and have games all over the world. Don't know what the timeline is to get their though.
