Sweet, I'll hop on in a bit this afternoon.
I'll be down to get my placement matches out of the way starting Saturday. My wife is leaving town and I'm gonna wear a hole in this game.
Well shit Amos maybe you don't know them that well!
I absolutely, with 100% confidence, expect Talon to be revealed as not actually evil at some point. That's how Blizzard rolls. And I'm fine with that. Maybe Overwatch 2 will have everyone come together to fight space omnics or something.
I've been online all week! My status was set to offline tho so I guess no one could see me. :(
We celebrated International Womens Day by picking all women in a CTF match. Pharah flew around back and stole our flag in overtime. :(
What happened to the OG squad?
Season 4 rankings were brutal, and pegged me at 1150SR after my placement matches. Pish Posh! I have since demonstrated the error of Blizzards algorithm, and climbed up to 1550SR Silver rank without a lot of hassle. If I can hit Gold by the end of season I will be happy with it.
Haha nah man after the first couple rounds - where we were whamming and bamming - my wife came home and started giving me shit. I'm not some professional e-sport athlete man, if I'm getting distracted my game craters. And thats, like, the thing she does. "Motherfuckers playing Overwatch? Better instigate a conflict!"
Cmon bae. She's got like a dozen fucken classes leveled up to 60 in FF14. I don't give a shit I'm doing fun stuff in the real world. But I can't wreck shop without getting distracted by the angry spouse? Maaaaan. Its super frustrating.
Thats why I had my mic muted, cause the domestics. Like when you play NBA 2K and its always some guy who's girlfriend is yelling at him in the background. That's me trying to cap the point.
And now that guy is probably one of Trump's most trusted cabinet members. Sorry I haven't been on Overwatch lately, fell down the rabbit hole in Horizon big time and loving every minute of it. I have to go tackle a Stormbird and Thunderjaw for a side quest. Next week Mass Effect!
Maybe the cat got behind wherever and DCed the router like you predicted earlier in the evening?
Orisa suffers from having no mobility and no instakill method.
Roadhog has poor mobility but has his hook and insane damage. Mcree has his stun and fan the hammer, Ana has her sleep dart for escape and the grenade to defend herself. Torb has his turret etc etc.
Orissa while strong, I think has to be played very carefully, almost completely based on position. Because if you get out of position or flanked your basically fucked. She is almost a support masquerading as a tank.
I still think she will be strong once teams learn how to play with her, but she lends herself to a rather careful and plodding playstyle. I almost think bastion is a better choice across the board to fulfill her role, he even feels a bit more tanky due to his self heal.
I'm just not overly taken by the character design or mechanics. Hero 24 should have been some rampaging DPS guy with flames for hands or something, after the notably niche additions of Ana and Sombra. (Altho Ana ended up being a mandatory Support role, so what do I know.)
I kind of suspect her kit is designed largely around neutralizing these kill-boxs scenarios where one team just has impregnable positioning. Right now its a popular playstyle that mandates Reinhardt as a counter. Mandatory picks are lame.
