    posted a message on Should Overwatch Sell a "Hero Pack" similar to Smite's "Ultimate God Pack"?

    As the others have said, I don't think they will make you pay for Heroes individually. The idea of that just seems scummy, and I really hope they make everyone free from the start. That said, I do think there will be a flat fee for the game itself. I think this will range from $20-$50. My guess is $45. We'll see! Fingers crossed for free though!

    Yeah, she definitely seems balanced and tactical, but she will definitely be a very strong hero. It will be interesting to see where she lands on the OP scales by the time we get to play. They're still going to be doing a crap-ton of balancing before we can even imagine touching the game.

    I think she is definitely strong and will (hopefully) be on every team. The teleporter is crucial for winning games. From what it seems she's balanced though. I wouldn't call her OP. My issue with her is she seems boring to play :/

    posted a message on fat guy with gas mask

    I think we'll see him as a slower offensive character that launches poison bombs and grenades. He'll be a really good counter to Bastion as he can throw gases up at him and he can't escape it easily. That's my thought at who he will be. Truth be told though, I do not want to see this Hero. He looks boring and there isn't much they can do with him. I could be wrong though! So we'll see :)

    I would agree with Mongrel714 about the game's pace being that of TF2 from what I've seen. I also have not played the game, unfortunately. I would say the game is not super fast paced, and you can always pick people with a slower playstyle like Reinhardt and Bastion. 

    Welcome to Overpwn! I hope that when the game hits Beta we'll see this community grow to the likes of Hearthpwn!

    posted a message on The Best?

    I do agree that Reaper is pretty cool looking compared to the others. I would aslo agree that Bastion, Widowmaker, and Zarya look OP. I think that Bastion and Widowmaker will really depend on the players positioning to be OP though. They don't seem like people you can just pick up and run with. Take Hunter in Hearthstone for example; it's not a hard class to play by any means and it is still as successful as any of the other classes. Now, I do think that Zarya will be fairly straight forward and less hard to play than the other two.

    As for Mercy, yes she doesn't fly around but her Guardian Angel ability is on a rather short cooldown from what I hear. This makes it so you can "fly" around the map jumping from one person to the next taking yourself in and out of combat. Should be pretty awesome to see what a great Mercy can do!

    So we've seen a lot of Characters from Overwatch, but I believe we will see another two before it actually hits Beta. Even still, who is your guys' overall top pick(s) for Overwatch? Personally, I love both McCree and Zarya, and Bastion is still a favorite of mine. Who is it you guys can't wait to play? Fall is a long ways away!

    I think we'll be seeing a high mobility, yet squishy character here. I don't care to speculate on the exact abilities he'll have, as I honestly haven't the slightest clue what they're going to do with him. For all we know, he could be a tank!

    In truth, I think he will have a dash that is a bit longer than Tracer dash with some damaging aspect to it. I can't wait to see what comes from this Hero! I'm not really excited for the big pig like guy though. He seems pretty boring imo :)

    This is a really cool feature they added and I can't wait to see an epic play (hopefully preformed by myself) at the end of each game! What do you guys think about it? Like it or not? 

    So what it is (for those who don't know) is at the end of each game the game calculates what it thinks was the best "play of the game." This usually involves someone getting like 4 kills in rapid succession or something along those lines. Everyone gets to see it, and there might be some kind of reward or achievement for getting play of the game.

    From most of the gameplay videos the "Play of the Game" came from a Bastion in ult form. I think that was about 3 videos I saw with that. So, I think it's pretty strong but will take some timing and skill.

    I think he was fairly good, but also against inexperienced players. Everyone in that game was playing Overwatch for their first or second time maybe, so they're not going to be doing their best. Though, I do think he was playing well and actually did a nice job working with his team. This game is extremely team focused so I hope I can get a group together when alpha or beta hits so we can play the game to its maximum potential! 

    Also, Zarya + Zarya = many shields. You shield each other and shield yourselves!

    posted a message on Beta and Alpha

    So we've already heard, sadly, that closed beta will not be until Fall of 2015. This is somewhat upsetting; mostly because from what we've seen, the game looks polished and great. It looks way better than some games even look in open beta, and yet we're months away. I can understand it's Blizzard, and they want the game to be as polished as possible before it is ready for everyone, but my god it looks so shiny right now! 

    So my hope, is to see an Alpha with lots of invites, as Heroes of the Storm was. Then hopefully, most of us who've been signed up for ages and are so hyped for this game, will be able to play before fall. That would be my wish, and for now, we wait!

    posted a message on Which support will you be playing?

    From what I hear Mercy is actually pretty different than the TF2 Medic. You don't just stand there healing them you have decisions to think about. Switching between healing and damage amp will be crucial and her Guardian Angel jump ability think is really good. I think she has quite a few differences from the medic that people just haven't seen yet

    Widowmaker Nova skin? *fap* *fap* *fap*   but for real those are great ideas. 

     

    I would love to see Overwatch Heroes in Heroes of the Storm and it makes perfect sense. Why not? The issue is they would really have to put all of them in together, or it wouldn't make much sense. None of them have their own individual amazing-ness that makes them commendable for HotS. Also, their abilities in Overwatch are already MOBA like. Now that I get into it, I don't think we will see them in HotS. Overwatch is almost a half moba as it is, so I'd expect not. Now I'm sad :(

    Widowmaker - Works very good in both defence and offence. Her ulti can can be a lifesaver and a matchwinner. I would have her on the team every game and on every map.

     I don't think you'll have any issue with getting a Widowmaker on your team hahaha

     

    this made me laugh too hard. 

    Quote from Qurant »

    Bastion - If Reinhardt is one of the best offence heroes, bastion is one of the best defence heroes. Set him up in a good spot and you'll get kills even Ghandi would be impressed of.

    You might think that but I think to be a good Reinhardt will take a lot of skill. He is one that is really easy to get into deep shit with and can find himself without a team and his lack of true mobility will get him killed quite easily. He is one where you'll really have to be aware of your teammates and where they're at

    This guy has done a couple of the Characters from Overwatch and the analysis is really great. He doesn't have that many subs which is great if you have questions, but otherwise is kinda sad. I like his videos and I think they give you a pretty good look at the Characters you want to play!

    It will be hard to tell at this point which comps are the "best." I think it will depend on the map mostly, but from the one showmatch we've gotten so far I would have to say the Pharah, Reaper, Symmetra, Reinhardt, Widowmaker, and Zenyatta worked out really well. The double buffs from Symmetra and Zenyatta on Reaper just made him insanely powerful as we saw in the first few minutes of the game. I definitely think a well played Reaper will be something I will always love to have on my team.

    You can label her as Defense, but people are going to play her in Offense too. Well, everyone is going to be playing her hahaha! Just because she's been put into defense doesn't mean she wont be good in both. I think that she will be better in a defense role, but that wont keep people from playing her every game, everywhere.

    posted a message on Sick and Tired of "TF2 Copy"

    I'm about f***in done with all the people crying copy. Every Overwatch vid has at least one comment bitching about it being a copy of TF2. The most surprising was some dipwad saying "TF2 Copy" ON A ZENYATTA VIDEO! I originally had upvoted it and replied "hahaha I get it! You're being sarcastic because its not like anything from TF2" (refering to Zenyatta as he is nothing like anything from TF2) "I guess nobody else got it lol" only to later realize the guy was being completely serious. He replies to every single comment with a dumb response and is overall, a dumb person. I can probably assume he was a troll and later wanked to the 43 replies he has got so far.

    These people don't understand that Blizzard cannot legally make anything that is a copy of something else that has patents such as TF2. I'm just so done with it already. It's awesome that people have stopped saying Heroes of the Storm is a Dota/League copy (although the games don't bare quite as many resemblances that TF2 and Overwatch do) and this reassures me that people will shut it soon after release. I just don't understand what their point even is. If it was a TF2 copy them pointing it out still doesn't do a damn thing. They are literally just complaining for no purpose. 

    Can someone please help me come to grips with the reality that is the one we live in? I'm just so done with all the haterz. Maybe I should get a therapist? Track these people down and kill them? Get a punching bag to take my anger out on? Think happy thoughts? What are your guys' opinions on this matter? I just gave you a good look at mine hahaha

    posted a message on My (Poor) Attempt at creating a hero -- Hyru

    I agree with what both of them have said up until this point and have a few questions myself.

    Hardlight Barrier creates a physical wall that blocks projectiles and movement, correct? If so, it would need a much higher cooldown or even be made into an ultimate that his allies can walk through. Something like that would be way to strong. 

    Hardlight Core would be used as a griefing tool, no doubt. I like PistolPotato's ideas for it. 

    His ult is interesting, but kinda boring. All it does is make him faster and reduce his cooldowns, which already don't have much of a use when he is alone. He definitely needs some tweaking, but it's a good start. Everyone has to start somewhere! I hope I didn't come across as a dick, none of us intend to be that way, just giving feedback!

    Hey guys! I'm in love with Hearthpwn already, but I think I can dump her (him? it?) for Overpwn! Or maybe have one of those crazy I-asked-two-girls-to-prom kinda relationships here. Some of you may recognize me from over there, though probably not as I am only just recently trying to make a name for myself over there. I do recognize you Rabidwhale! You're a moderator over there, actually. Anyways, about me! 

    Back, when I was a little girl in France- wait no, nothing personal. Right. (I'm a guy actually, though. Clarifying)

    If I had to remember the first game I played, it would have to be Bugdom. Then Oregon Trail. That game was the sh!t. Both of those games I played at school for a while. My brother started hanging out with the wrong kind of crowd. Before I knew it, I was addicted to World of Warcraft, and so was he. It was many years before I sought the help I needed to stop playing. That was well after Cataclysm, around a few weeks after Firelands was released. From there I played mostly Minecraft and TF2. I started playing League of Legends and still do. When I learned about Hearthstone, I was enthralled. I collected the WoW TCG and even got a number of Loot Cards (which are awesome cards that you can redeem online for in game bonuses. Some I got were worth $50-$100. That's a lot of dough) which were awesome! I fear that one day I might relapse back to WoW... It's spot in my heart will never be filled. I've played many games, but none are WoW... As someone who has enjoyed TF2 for a "long time" (Hours: http://gyazo.com/74208f227e8c41c743f8c52e85455ac1 medic is about 2 and a half but it got cut off) I am definitely anticipating Overwatch's release. It's combination of a shooter and moba-style abilities should make it a unique game. The characters are interesting and the story could develop well if they put in the effort. Blizzard has always made great stories along side their games. WoW and Starcraft both have fantastic stories. Even though I don't play WoW anymore, I still follow it's story quite closely. I've also played Skyrim, a bit of Starcraft, a little bit of DayZ, Castle Crashers, Halo (3-4 mostly including my personal favorite, Reach), and lately Town of Salem. I love playing with people I can talk to, as this makes the game that much more fun. I can't wait to watch the Overpwn community grow, and see all the amazing people converge here! I look forward to getting to know most of you!

    Sorry for the wall of text... I tend to write a lot :)

It seems like the game is already coming together really well from what footage we've seen and if it's still not in open beta by the end of January I would be surprised, and not pleasantly.

    My Tank-of-Choice would have to be Reinhardt. He is awesome! That massive shield will be huge when it comes to pushing objectives and pinning people will be so satisfying. As far as I know, it is an instant kill even on someone as tanky as Winston. He will probably be difficult to play against all the quick small champions with his limited mobility. He should be really strong with someone to back him up like Zenyatta or Torbjorn. Can't wait for Open Beta! 

    Edit: After Zarya was announced I'm going to have to change! She's looking like one hell of a tank. Reinhardt will be one of my situational picks as he will be stronger in some scenarios. Nobody likes poor Winston :(

    posted a message on Bastion might need some tweaking

    I don't think you realize just how long 3 seconds is. He is all about positioning and it is really easy for someone like Tracer or Reaper to get behind him with their abilities. He has a 180 degree view, from what I've heard, and is completely immobile when he's reconfigured. He has his strengths and his weaknesses that make him balanced. I think the really skilled Bastions will not stay in one place for too long as they will get picked off too easily. I wonder if Pharah's concussive blast will knock a Bastion out of position even when he is reconfigured. If so that will be really strong against him as it will force him to reconfigure twice if he want's to get back to where he was. I want to play Bastion when he comes out, maybe even main him. He's awesome!

    I think Symmetra is pretty good and I will likely try to get good at her. She's not a typical support, with a lack of healing she is more mobility based with her fantastic ult. It will be key for the enemy tracer to take that portal out as soon as it comes down. I'll probably start with Mercy as she is simple and will be the easiest to learn imo. We'll see what happens when the game comes out!
