The Overwatch Thread

Post by Chizzlywizzly » Mon Dec 19, 2016 9:37 am

Post your Overwatch tales, rants, Blizzard IDs and whatever here!

I played it for pretty much the first time at the weekend, it's so much fun but I'm terrible at it :lol:

I've not played it yet, or even downloaded it! :o

It does look like they took all the best ideas from FPS arena games form the last 15 years or so and squashed it all in to one game, so if I ever do try it, I'll probably like it.

This is my obsession currently (and for the past few months) We even bought me my own PS4 so da hubz and I could play together. I'm not super good at it but I have fun :D

Overwatch is awesome, so much fun to play with a full party of friends or people you met in ranked/casual play!

I main Soldier 76 and Mercy, best moment was going on a 29 kill streak on Soldier. Still lost but I felt like a friggin champion! :D

I enjoyed playing Reaper in the first few games I played, tried Mei and didn't like her as much - I should give D.Va a go at some point.

Maybe we could organise a 6v6 friendly Hooman match, I'd be totally up for that one evening :D

I main D.Va, but Mei is Bae <3 I actually have a Mei Cosplay that I'm pretty proud of!

Hubby mains Sombra right now but he's been playing Zenyatta quite a bit too.

What platforms do you all play on?

What gamemodes does Overwatch have? I've seen a point-control mode, does it have any others?

I d/l it during the free weekend (which took all of Saturday) and played around in the training room on Sunday with a bunch of characters.
I never went into an actual game.

As far as shooters go, this is my all time fave. Easy to drop in, play a few, and leave whenever you wish.

Reinhadrt, Mercy, Reaper, Widowmaker, Bastion, Sombra and Pharah.

I hate video game drama, so I only really quick play and mute anyone with attitude.

Reminder Overwatch players: with the new patch, you have to go into "Settings" -> "Controls" -> "Lucio" and turn the "Allow Backwards Wall Ride" setting to "ON". It is off by default, and very useful! :)

I wish I'd picked it up when it was on sale, but I was still trying to play Wowcraft and didn't want to spend on another.

I've patched for the free weekend but it's also Magic pre-release and my sister's birthday so I doubt I'll have much chance to actually play.
