My initial thoughts of this are "Blizzard does Team Fortress 2"

...and I am perfectly okay with this.

Would love to see more though.

Team Fortress with League of Legends-styled characters. That's honestly a pretty brilliant idea.

alvarado52 11-08-2014 01:02 AM

Yeah they may have something huge on their hands. Hoping for a console release.

VSG 11-11-2014 11:15 AM

The consoles should be ok performance wise with this. But I still wouldn't be surprised if this is PC only. It is Blizzard after all.

road doggy dogg 11-11-2014 11:26 AM

Console versions of D3 have been incredibly positive for them. Consoles aren't a "dead market" for them anymore, though I still fully expect this to be PC-only at first.

road doggy dogg 05-03-2016 07:22 AM

any of y'all in beta? played a bit this morning, will probably be on all night playing this

drave 05-03-2016 07:39 AM

Can't get Beta access unless I pre-order.... unless something has changed.

road doggy dogg 05-03-2016 07:48 AM

yeah got a key from my buddy, on the fence about buying it. if my friends stick around with it I'll grab it for sure

#BROKEN Hasney 05-03-2016 08:06 AM

I've got the PC and PS4 versions to try them both out. Will probably start for PS4 if the port is good and grab the PC version when I upgrade early next year. My laptop can handle the PC version, but it's a hassle to play without using a joypad.

road doggy dogg 05-03-2016 08:14 AM

I finally got a 360 controller for my PC so I may toy around with using that but am sticking to keyboard/mouse for now

Having a lot of fun with Winston. I think I like the tankier characters

#BROKEN Hasney 05-04-2016 01:34 AM

So Blizzard have done 3 great things with the game bar it just being fun. Like I said in the other thread, a rock solid 60fps is great. What they've also done is balance the game differently for consoles, which is perfect. Tracer has more health because you can't turn around quick enough on a joypad when being shot from behind for instance.

Tracer is my character, always a sucker for the speedy class. The third thing they've done is automatic highlight videos.

Think I'm going to chuck a pre order down.

Kalyx triaD 05-04-2016 03:14 AM

May miss the beta but I will get this. They had me from first gameplay trailer and I've been thru all the character trailers since. Don't even know who to main.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-04-2016 03:33 AM

Found the performance comparison and they've got the framerate locked down on XB1 too. Awesome stuff.

#BROKEN Hasney 05-04-2016 04:02 AM

Really do love the auto highlights too.

Open beta access starting times based on timezone:

Shadow 05-04-2016 09:50 AM

Been in early access and having a great time. Just need to work on gittin gud and I'll be set.

road doggy dogg 05-04-2016 12:20 PM

I played some beta with a group of 5 all last night. Was fantastic. Reinhardt is a monster.

So many fucking Bastions around everywhere though

Seph 05-04-2016 01:15 PM

Game not launching with competitive mode. Blizzard says they will add it in later on after release.....

Just like all those PVP modes you were gonna add in for Diablo 3 after release, right Blizzard?

road doggy dogg 05-04-2016 01:26 PM

Eh I don't think this will be the same case. Competitive play is a mandatory backbone to this game, where PvP in Diablo was always more of a gimmick tbh

road doggy dogg 05-04-2016 01:27 PM

Don't get me wrong, the way they've handled that in D3 has been a complete disaster and they should not be excused for it, but I would be legit surprised if something as ridiculous happened with Overwatch

drave 05-04-2016 08:03 PM

FUck yeah, Xbox One and PS4 beta's started today. Halfway through the 11GB download now. Going to be a lonnnnnnnnnnnng night :D

road doggy dogg 05-04-2016 08:41 PM

so fun. just played a game against a 6-Bastion lineup lmao... so annoying

guys were cool tho

Shadow 05-04-2016 08:43 PM

....holy fuck how the hell does the game even give that option? Like seriously that's some bullshit.

You should be able to stomp all over that team with a squad of Reapers.

Fignuts 05-05-2016 05:38 AM

Jesus no wonder people are picking bastion. Playing as him is practically cheating.

ClockShot 05-05-2016 06:19 AM

Downloaded the beta last night. Start it tonight to see what all the hub-bub is about.

Question to PS4 users, did this download as a "Music Player" for you guys? Did this on my phone at work, and when I fired it up, it said "Music Player downloading" in the corner.

road doggy dogg 05-05-2016 08:17 AM

probably gonna be playing this all weekend. any other PC players? tonavin#1510 is my bnet handle

drave 05-05-2016 08:56 AM

They will nerf Bastion I think. I have come across a team of them too. You can set options to not allow multiple instances of the same character, but that is in custom games.

I, so far, have become pretty good with Thornbjorn (The Dwarf turret guy) and D.Va. Not too bad with Reaper and Soldier 76, but definitely smash the shit outta the place with the first two. Went on a 38 player kill streak with the Dwarf last night :D

road doggy dogg 05-05-2016 09:03 AM

I've been having a blast playing as Lucio. He's basically Kofi Kingston.

drave 05-05-2016 09:07 AM

Jamaican or Ghana, South African Kofi?

road doggy dogg 05-05-2016 09:10 AM

I don't think I've ever paid enough attention to him to differentiate his style/mannerisms between "origin changes"................... but let's just put some headphones and rollerblades on Kofi and see where we get

drave 05-05-2016 09:11 AM

Lol @ Kofi on skates.

drave 05-05-2016 09:11 AM

BRB - gonna go play some Overwatch.

VSG 05-05-2016 09:21 AM

Got an hour of gaming with Bastion, that guy is seriously overpowered for beginners. Once other people get comfortable with heroes that can snare, stun, trap etc then it will be better. I went up against a good Roadhog who kept hooking me out of turret mode and had a few melee heroes attack combo me but that aside it was a piece of cake in all of the matches.

Will add you now, although I may be headed to Austin tomorrow so that limits my playtime :(

road doggy dogg 05-05-2016 09:31 AM

Bastion seems too strong on certain defensive maps, if you can set up and have a half-decent team you should be pretty safe to wreak havoc

road doggy dogg 05-05-2016 09:31 AM

Had a couple sick plays as Pharah flying over Reinhardts and hitting them from above with rockets. Pharah is super fun but pretty easy to pick off in the air. And people look like ballers when they do get you flying :'(

VSG 05-05-2016 09:33 AM

I haven't seen anyone pick Winston so far :'(

road doggy dogg 05-05-2016 09:39 AM

Winston's awesome. I think Reinhardt is just a better definitive tank character that he sees more play though.

I like playing Winston more on the attack since your aim is to get right up in the enemy's face and disrupt them and deflect attention away from your teammates. When your ult is up you can go nuts. Really helpful for trying to break through Bastions and turrets n shit
