This game is really popular right now so I thought it was a good idea to make a thread for it, I'm having a lot of fun with it atm and I know I'm not the only one. With this and SFV I think I'm settled on 2 games for 2016 already I guess.

Mains atm to me are McCree, Phara, Widowmaker, Symmetra, and Mei, as for tanks there are Reinhardt and D.Va but I'm still not that good with them... it's a great idea to be able to play at least one of each type, as sometimes people refuse to change characters to make the team have a better synergy.

Soooo what are your opinions about it? Characters you like to play or things you find to be unbalanced about it atm?

Share your Bnet tag if you want to as well, mine is Relusion#11852.

^ Thanks for that incredibly well thought out and insightful post.

Anyway, this game is pretty great.  It's like a much, much better TF2.  Better aesthetics, better balance, and unlockable content that's both simple to get and not stupid.  I'm mostly playing Mei, Junkrat, and Symmetra.  I'll pick up Lucio whenever the team needs a healer, but I'm still trying to work out who I prefer for the attack or tank roles.  The thing that's struck me most about the game is how versatile all of the classes are.  Every single character has a ton of options at their disposal and they all feel equally viable.

Anyone wants to add me it's MrHorrible#11437

Lucio is a great pick for a healer, I gotta reminding myself to pick a healer as well... I'm thinking Zenyatta atm, he's pretty fun to play though you gotta be careful since he's glass cannon.

The thing I dislike the most about matches is that most of the time nobody picks a healer but the opposing team does... very infuriating when taking into account the big advantage they can give.

Zenyatta's got the best attack options out of the healers, but he's tricky.  He's got long-distance healing capabilities, but you have to make sure your team stays in your line of sight to tag them with it.  I haven't gotten the hang of him yet.

Porn's literally the only interest I have in this game :^)

Always expect that sort of thing in pubs, healer roles aren't too popular and it's rare to find someone who mains those roles and you'll find that issue in a lot of other games as well.

I could sit and play Zenyatta all day, only problem is. Lucio and Mercy are just better, Annoyingly so. More because of how broken Widowmaker is, and it takes a body shot to kill Zenyatta. Quite frustrating.

Wave#22127 is my battletag, I mostly play Offensive Heroes having most hours in Pharah. Although I find myself actually loving all the heroes enough to pick for the team if I'm not practising.

I heard of Widowmaker being broken before... what exactly makes her broken? I play her but I can't pinpoint why she is unbalanced.

On this topic, McCree is the one I hear the most to be nerfed, I think it has to do with his E + Right Click combo which instant kills almost the entire cast... outside of that I can't see much as to why he should be nerfed.

The complaint about McCree is how fast he can melt tanks with his double fan combo.

Basically, the issue with Widow well, the few issues. Are that 1.) her Sniper charges up to make in 1 second I believe? Which is crazy short. And 2.) the amount of damage she does at mid charge while also having an assault rifle.

Like I said in my last post, if you pick Zenyatta. And they pick Widow, you've either got to swap, or hope you have someone that's good at playing Tracer/Genji/D.VA(Who's getting a buff, hype). Who'll kill her, due to Zenyatta dying in about half a widow sniper charge. That's the main issue, is that she charges so fast, but even without fully charging you're destroying everyone.

I played against a few widows who single handedly carried their teams, by just how strong the sniper is. With the game being about a week old there's only a few Widows who are really good, but aslong as you don't have potato aim. You can normally wreck teams that aren't picking to counter you.

MeCree, he's basically broken because he cant kill Tracer is 1 E right? That's fine, that's his whole reason for being in the game, to kill those pesky backline killers. But he cant also E + Right Click + Shift + Right Click, and kill any tank in the game. (Maybe minus Zarya?) Right now the counter to MeCree is another MeCree(Who presses E better), Pharah / Widow. Basically people who don't get near him to get flash banged dead.

Her gun charges to fast for the damage it does on headshots which are pretty easy to get and usually a sniper isn't great at close range but Widow does great damage up close with the Fully Automatic mode on her gun.

Finally someone made this thread. Laziness truly pays off!

Widowmaker is balanced with consoles in mind, that's the main issue. Blizzard already stated that they will balance consoles and the PC version differently so we can expect her to be tweaked eventually. Right now she can shut down an entire team as long as she's protected. Her only legit counter is another widowmaker, which makes pro matches stale as fuck.

McCree is already going to get a nerf soon. D.Va is going to get a buff but Blizzard still doesn't know what to buff exactly so it's going to take some time.

Also my character playtime pretty much reflects the best and worst Overwatch girl :)

I'm deliberating on a PS4 sale since it turns out Overwatch nukes my PC pretty hard -- doesn't help that it mandates a video card threshold, either.

On the upside, I feel compelled to sing praises over this image:

D. Va in an absolute nutshell. Can't wait to main her and Mei~.
Suddenly, bow-wow-wow~. :3

You can get Overwatch for pretty cheap on DLCompare for Ps4, friend of mine mentioned it recently.

All D.Va really needs a buff on is her damage output.  Outside of her ult she's got practically nothing.

And you shut your heathen mouth, Mei is best girl.  Don't be talking shit about the dorksicle.

Hmmm I see... she does charge pretty fast to do pretty much a one kill shot indeed, if you know a good place to hide and is good at aiming she's a monster.

Point taken about McCree, I can't count the times which I killed Reinhardt with the stun grenade + six shots combo heh, I think the only tank he can't kill is Roadhog?

I think the only hero I haven't been able to kill as MeCree(And this is with about 20 minutes with him), is Zarya. and a "lucky" Genji, I say lucky because the tickrate doesn't really allow players to intentionally time their deflect as soon as the flashbang animation goes off.(Which i hope changes in competitive).

Not sure if you guys have seen, but there's a way to triple fan the hammer. By using your ult to cancel the reload animation or something along those lines. Due to later on in higher level of players you're not going to be getting many 4 man ults. Haven't tried it yet, but since i have no-one to play with atm I'm just watching streams and was hearing about it in a stream.

Widow full charge body shot does 150 damage which is why she one shots Zenyatta(and Tracer). She also gets countered by Winston who can get to her quickly no matter where she's shooting from. Flanking and ambushing characters also help taking her out. Her charge rate is really fast and I do expect it to get nerfed.

Also, Mercy is the best healer without a doubt, but you need a competent team to make sure she stays alive.

I'm on PS4, but my Bnet is DarkflareEX#1404 if anyone cares.

You tell him Person Man! She can be really good in the right hands, some people are even scared of a good Mei player.
