Did Jack ever show up?
Blizzard's OVERWATCH - Page 36
Everytime I get on it seems like nobody else is or you're playing other games. We are all in different time zones, so that plays a part in it. Most of my gametime has been dedicated to old call of duty, in anticipation of the new one being released next week. I still would love to try ARK but I'm not opposed to playing OW if others are playing.
My first two boxes of the event gave me Cthulu Zen and Witch Mercy. My final box yesterday gave me 80's Zarya. I think if I get nothing else before its done, I'll be satisfied with those 3. I wouldn't mind having Junkenstein and Hogmonster, but I really just wanted Witch Mercy since I didn't start playing until last December.
All the other event stuff I've gotten is the usual sprays/icons/voice lines/win poses/highlight animation junk. I do like emotes though. Skins and emotes > all the other unlockable crap.
I skipped out of Comp pretty quickly after the placement matches. FFA Deathmatch is my garbage jam now.
Loot boxes have been bad to me, but I had enough gold for last years Junkenstein skin, and 80's Zarya.
If you have one good tank, one good healer, and one good DPS, you can make it work, but you need at least one of each.
Last season I barely played but I was up to around 2700. I always tried to have a each component in place before committing to play, which can be tough, and the main reason for me playing so infrequently.
Good tanks are always tough to find, which is why I will always try to latch onto one if I can find one. I think I'm a pretty good Rein, but every time I go Rein I end up gold or silver in damage, which means the DPS isn't very good.
The deathmatch stuff doesn't do it for me. The thing I like best about Overwatch is the team-based problem solving! In deathmatch mode, even in a team I kind of glaze over and feel much less of a need to communicate.
All the nuance with how the characters interact is what makes the game special, and that interplay is sidelined in deathmatch mode. Might as well just have everyone be Reaper, Soldier, or Junkrat.
You must be referring to the part of the game where everybody yells at the offensive Torbjorn to stop playing Torbjorn while on offense.
Yeah I'm honestly not gonna fuck with it until they roll back the projectile ult garbage and do something about Junkrats obnoxious ass. Good lord.
Fortnite is pretty goddamn fun. Tzu you should stop avoiding me, we can squad up!
Fortnite is fine, I just wish it wasn't so cartoonish. Plus the shotguns are so insanely powerful, they dwarf every other type of gun in the game.
Player Unknown's Battlegrounds is the battle royale game I'm waiting for. Same concept with a Call of Duty look and feel. I plan on dominating in that game if/when it comes out for the PS4.
My friends group has largely moved almost entirely into co op experiences. Warframe, Rainbow Six Siege co op, Destiny 2... They prefer the fun of laughing over our failures together than the aggression that extremely invested PvP people can inspire.
Overwatch is such a weird fucking game. Because I find that we almost always have our most success when we're all making it a point to be positive, inspiring heroic leaders, etc.
Which is fucking exhausting.
But also infuriating when you get stuck with a bunch of inanimate vegetable DPS deafmutes.
I've been a little too salty on the mic lately. I apologize for that.
When your game time is limited it sucks that an integral part of the Overwatch experience is suffering the fools. 30 million people play the game. That a lot of children, dummies, and assholes.
Maintaining a bench of folks you can slot in to a six-stack is the way to go, but holy cow what a time commitment that is. The only person I've seen pull it off is playing the game for a much larger amount of time than you'd think a mother of two young kids would have available.
Winter patch is live.
The think Ana has the best (weirdest) new skin:
honorable mention to Hanzo, dressed like a college student at UO
Roadhog is not the Eggman, but the Walrus. CooCooCaChoo.
All of the new skins are decidedly secular this year. None of them elude to Christmas, like Elf Tracer and Santa Torb last year.
I really like 80's Zarya though. Давайте сделаем физические
I don't think I'll be grinding this event like the other ones. Not enough motivation. The new Yeti game isn't all that great either, but I guess it's slightly better than Mei's snowfight, which is easily the worst event mode. I'll probably just do the weekly arcades for the boxes. I also might go ahead and soft retire from the game, at least until the Blizzard World stage comes out. Personally the game feels like its on its last legs.
