Am I allowed to be hyped for this game yet?
>20 tick rate
>in a "competitive shooter"
I wonder if this is supposed to be a character?
He flies on a UFO, serving food to allies with his robotic hand, or throwing smelly/spicy food at enemies.
This is the worst part because when people explain it, yea it sounds super important. The reality is we are talking about the difference between 1/3 of a blink of an eye and 1/6th of a blink of an eye maximum. On average it will be half that. Basically, if you have a ping over 20 you wouldn't even notice a difference in server tick rate.
>preordered for £25
>it's the origina version with the skins
>mfw gonna play tracer all day with that cool scarf and bastion looking all ancient
they just need to give preorders beta access and i'll be happy
You 12 year old memebabys say that now but you'll be raging when your getting rekt. This is of course because you're a kid and as such are retarded by default.
>see blizz announce the game
>pretty meh but enjoyed the trailers
>see some gameplay recently
>those god tier animations and sound design and overall polish
>and importantly it looks fun with cool heroes
I feel so conflicted because Blizz have gone to shit when it comes to all their other games, except maybe Diablo.
coming from a game developer, you have no fucking clue what you are talking about and should stop posting idiotic shit like this online as if you had a clue. you should be thankful this is an anonymous place because whoever is behind this post is a massive idiot and at least can stay hidden for their own benefit
So, not only do you not know what the fuck you're talking about, you also assume that the other side is lying about simple, completely believable things because it suits your argument
We've got terms for people like you, we call them 'slimy dishonest shitheads'
I'll be honest, I've never watched a single trailer or learned anything about the mechanics. However, I have masturbated furiously to Overwatch pics, particularly those involving Tracer.
>2 years from now, half the characters will have become corrupted
Pretty much. Everything needs to have a set term for people to understand, b2p, p2p, f2p, and p2w and such, b2p being just the standard buy a game and fucking play it model, p2p being subscriptions, though I'm not sure how many games survive with that anymore save WoW and EVE I guess, and consoles.
Stop saying SJW about everything, you cunts are as bad as Americans constantly saying "terrorist" to provoke people into flipping their shit.
well i gave blizz almost half what they would've gotten had i bought it after launch (that package would normally cost £25 and blizz games notoriously rarely go down in price) so a bargain for me and fuck all for you
>Tfw i can't build agile DPS Zero Suit D.VA
Fuck you Blizzard i didnt want to play your shitty TF2 clone anyway
While release means even more artists will be exposed to it there's already a decent supply of the fairly limited options. No real reason to get hyped unless they're holding back a bunch of potentially fapable characters for release.
I've been playing competitive shooters for more than most of /v/ has been alive, and 20tick honestly does not bother me.
If you're doing something in which your opponent has the opportunity to react to you within an extra 0.04 seconds of your attack over a shooter with a higher tick, then whatever you were doing was a bad move to begin with.
The only people that complain about the low tickrate are casuals who don't know they're casuals.
>actually caring about the video game part of overwatch
Go ahead if that's your thing. I'll only be hype and give them my money when they give me the only characters i wanted.
Has there been any complaints about all the big fat asses yet or are those halaal? I keep waiting for the day they're all made flat and small to appease some blogger but it just hasn't happened.
Lucio has posters up and such, probably other characters as well. Just because it's a mascot doesn't mean it can't also be real. Moreso because this is a fucking game, and for all you know there could have been a Captain named Crunch during WWII.
Not that Anon, but it's not the way to go if you want an actual quality rip. The filesize is that low because you pay the price in visual and audible fidelity.
Something that bothers me personally is that the volume is always so goddamn low. If you're just looking for a quick download to watch a movie once, it's okay enough.
>tfw that shota gets annihilated in a crossfire while trying to score with that euroshit waifu
Got a link to that?
Every time I've seen someone say "Yeah guys its totally confirmed!" they actually just mean Blizzard keeps dancing around the issue and not actually giving a direct yes/no answer to it.
I'll admit I'm actually surprised they've finally come out and said it. I bet they've been wavering on making a firm decision on it since way before the game ever got announced.
Though I still don't trust Blizz a fucking bit, considering how much other random shit they've gone back on.
This one is usually quite popular
>overwatch collector's edition comes with a figure
>its of some shitty generic looking soldier
why would you waste an opportunity like this
its a shame that such a great kit and design got tied to such a shit girl.
its okay, best girl and bot are on their way
>getting hyped for a game that's $60 for no reason
If they dropped the price to 30, maybe even 45 then I'd be hyped. I'm not paying $60 for what I've seen of the game so far though.
I suppose my opinion here is moo since /v/ is a bunch of underageb& fags who will have their mom buy the game in exchange for good boy points
>the reality is...
No, you fucking retard. Did you ever play BF3/4 before the patches that upped the tick rate to 60 as a standard? FUCKING 15 SERVER TICK RATE. It was very noticeable when you keep dying after you've ran around a corner and sprinted 10 feet away. It was very noticeable to unload into an enemy, die, and despite all the hitmarkers that showed up you did 0 damage. At first everyone thought it was lag, until super youtubers were able to prove it's due to the server tick rate. No one fucking liked it, everyone fucking hated it. The only people who didn't complain were console shitters who were just happy they had something aside from Call of Duty.
That was totally a fluke, so I can't say with certainty, but it looked like it happened as a result of me pressing the key right at the end of a normal swing
What'll it be boys
>ingame model BETTER than cinematic
holy shit what
that has never happened and will never happen again
>Trying to start something on an anonymous message board
The best time I had in the beta was driving Junkrat wheels behind awful Reinharts who have no idea that the shield does not explode the wheel on impact.
You just drive it round the side and it explode it behind them.
>calls other people "memebaby"
Fuck off, reddit.
Try playing Soldier normally. Can't see shit.
I'm playing a shitty F2P Objective based game right now just to take up time till I play OW again. Its depressing.
It can be good, I've played some really good games but most of the time its utter shitters playing classes that they have no idea how to play and doing nothing. Then moaning about it.
Fucking Phantoms and Vaselines. Pls.
I find I'm either really bored playing it, or I'm having a fucking banging whomp of a time. There's no mediocrity, it's either fantastic or dull.
I give it respect for having such a good F2P model though.
I'm always on the lookout for something else to try, always seem to come up short. Lawbreakers looks alright but its ages away and theres the GitS thing I guess.
Fuck why are TF2 clones so rare and yet lots of them just appeared for this year at the sametime?
60 tick rate is absolutely not the standard. Majority of servers in the server list are 30. If you attempt to rent a 60 tick rate server, the cost is astronomical compared to a 20 or 30 tick rate, so nobody does it
Every time I see Mercy reload I think of that ANCIENT ALIENS bastard
I enjoy playing Execution in Dirty Bomb. It allows me to move around the map freely with a speedster like Proxy without being pigeonholed to a small objective route like Bridge or Chapel EV shit. The Execution maps also have great spots to wall jump left to right to avoid shots and get some nice air for ez headshots.
>$60 for a game that looks on par with f2p shooters
I just want fast and this shit looks slow as fuck outside a few very short specials. I know why the movement looks so stiff and slow as well, it's so consolefags don't have trouble aiming at people going fast while going fast.
Thats not what I meant, I meant that the game was never focused on being an MLG eSport from the start so I doubt 20 tick blah blah blah ever occurred to them.
Nah, I meant TF2 in that cartoony non-serious sort of way, like you can take TF2 deadly seriously and there are avenues to play it competitively but it still has a bright and breezy feel to it. Unlike say Dirty Bomb.
Everyone is so fucking angry in Execution and I do prefer playing support roles in Objective mode. I get to still help when my aiming is sub-par and my reaction times are shit because I'm old.
That green shit is D.va shooting down projectiles with one of her skills. Everything is standard.
>Everyone is so fucking angry in Execution
Just stay with your team, don't pick Vaseline or Phantom, and you should be good. I had a lot of good games tonight and only one instance of people bickering after a 6 hour session. You're a godsend if you play medic on Execution even if you get zero kills. The main problem is getting a few shitters on your team who try to go solo sniper or have no idea what to do with the c4.
I really need to start recording because a lot of over the top moments happen in DB, but they're rare because you really have to be on point and a little lucky.
They'll have an even simpler ui for consoles probably, I think planetside had to make one too.
Still they're probably still tweaking shit, some steamers and youtubers have no fucking clue what the characters do even with the icons straight on the screen.
>I give it respect for having such a good F2P model though.
>2 weeks of THESE shit mercs everywhere
>2 weeks of THESE now
Fucking ass really, it would be okay if the game had some actual higher level servers, but even in min level 10 ones you just get an overwhelming number of the free mercs
Not to mention the shitty mission system basically makes sure everyone try to pubstomp so you end up with lvl 3-10 people in one team and lvl 40-50 in the other very often
This literally killed it for me
This was a problem for me until I took the time to just pick medic and troll the other team for the entire game.
I played at launch and remember it taking fucking ages to unlock a merc so I quit
Also at the time Phantom was overpowered as fuck and there was no ingame way to report hackers at all
You just are not a fucking retard or a child or a retarded child. If there was some sort of function to remove snipers from objective game types, say like a server option that can be toggled it would make everything so much better.
Whats most important in the early stages of these kinds of games when you first start playing is learning map control, its why you do the Overwatch tutorial with Soldier and you get Skyhammer for free with Dirty Bomb. Shitters will always play as snipers, contribute nothing because they think simply killing people is how you win these things. They will not change class, they will not try anything different, they can not be reasoned with. They make everything worse.
I usually play medic anyway, but the fact that 80% of my team is restricted to the weekly shit basically makes sure I constantly have to change according to what is happening in the game
The problem I have is really this, the last three rotations were
>endless naders - fucking KILL ME
>endless proxies(mines) - FUCK
and now we are on
Really I'd like the game if it just FINISHED with this shit and we could play the whole game at once, instead of the general aspect changing every two weeks.
I can't even make up my general playstyle because I constantly have to change the way I play according to whats on rotation.
Thats true when attacking, but I swear most teams have no idea how to defend, they just go to one point and basically camp it.
Being alone defending A on market is daily business for me.
The endless Fletchers right now are a far worse problem. Just three fucking stickies and endless jumping. The Phantoms become laughable because they have no idea what to do. Like if suddenly Spy was introduced to TF2 and no one knew what to do.
Yeah, I didn't stay for this rotation, all my motivation kind of just fizzled out when I thought "oh this is never ending and we'll have mass %insert explosive using merc% every two weeks forever
The phantoms who TRY are pathetic, the most I meet though sits in a corner until someone shows there back to them, and since I usually play low health mercs it fucks me up.
Explosives ruin this game a lot.
Why won't any of them just play Skyhammer and actually help out?
Like I just played Bridge, spawn as Proxy because theres no objective specialist on team. Fix EV, its gets Sky/Arti'd instantly. Everyone else is just standing around. Realise theres no medic, have to swap off of Proxy over to
Sparksand res everyone as best as possible. That entire game was a war of attrition. Someone was playing Stoker and on offense in an EV map. RRRRREEEEEEEEEEEEE
Playing a medic with lots of Sky and Arti around is painful because the hitbox on the strikes is fucking massive and just being slightly grazed while around a corner is enough to knock you down.
and this is Dirty Bomb so theres no one coming to pick you up.
the amount of times I'm berating people over the chat for literally forgetting they are playing OBJECTIVE mode is almost as much as I did when I was a 13 year old little sperg
Yeah, though I could really do without sky's ridiculous aoe too, or a higher delay/longer marker
nader gets really on my nerves too, its very strong in good hands and very
>imma run in and martyrdom again and again and again
in most hands
