>>683269648 Those motherfuckers need to do something to justify the price of that $10 game. Basically just a TF2 that I have to pay for. I no longer play TF2, but atleast TF2 actually made me a little bit of money for Steam games. I also feel like the game has some serious balance issues with some of the heroes. Nearly every play of the game is Bastion sitting in some corner in his sentry mode. Exciting.
>>683271718 I'd much rather pay for TF2 than Overpriced. At least TF2 is fully fleshed out. Overwatch feels like an empty shell of a game. Sure, it's in open beta but the release is on the 24th. Not too far off.
>>683271547 Every play of the game is someone pressing Q. It's the nature of how ultimate abilities work. If a Bastion is mowing down your entire team all the time, maybe you should try something besides funneling into him. Get a Reinhardt, Mei, Junkrat, hell even rocket bitch or a Genji.
>>683272835 Yeah, stale is exactly the word for it. After a few matches I'm ready to quit playing. I think the heroes are pretty unbalanced, some are just far better than others and quite a few are just straight rips from Team Fortress 2. Yeah, it's going to bomb and I have no fucking sympathy for Blizzard because they've completely lost sight of what their fans want and what made them great in the first place.
>>683273310 the only "bad" hero is mei, but even she can be useful for her utility, the "overpowered" aspect you're talking about is not countering those heroes, there's a reason why you can swap heroes mid-game, although, most people, from what i see, don't even know that's possible. If you pick a solider or mcree and can't take out a bastion by running directly at it, is your problem, there are a bunch of other heroes that work well against him.
>>683273310 >>683273816 I really don't see the hero's as unbalanced. Mei is fucking awesome at point control against Reaper/Tracer/Genji. Ice wall is fantastic and nothing gets people pissed like invulning through their Q. Shit just having a personal heal is great.
>>683274124 I haven't really played mei pretty much at all, i'm just talking from what i've seen, there was only one game where she destroyed people from afar with icicles that do as much as mccree's gun
>>683274744 Refused to play until close to release to see how balanced the game was
Sure a few adjustments need to be made but mostly the game is in good form.
If you think its gonna be dead because you don't understand what Blizz is trying to achieve here. They've managed it with Hearthstone and Heroes, now they're releasing the shooter they lack to compete with others
Hope that made you realise why you're the biggest retard ITT
>>683274916 Yeah, they're not concerned with making quality games anymore. They're just concerned about churning out quantity in as many different genres as possible in an attempt to appeal to everyone,
>>683275256 Because it is not successful. Not many people play/stream it. But arguably it wasn't a flop as the same can be said for vanilla D3 and SC2 (SC2 only got bad after 8 months of "balancing" and the expansions flopped because they sucked) but again no one played the D3 expansion's or the SC2 expansions because of how let down they were by the previous products
Yeah, a few adjustments like adding $30 more worth of content.
I understand exactly what Blizzard is trying to achieve. They're trying to get their fingers into as many eSports genres as possible and doing a pretty piss poor job at it. You can't cater your games towards casual play while simultaneously trying to push those same games onto the eSports scene.
>>683275504 Coh 2 literally requires more talent and is more fun at this point. Same thing can be said about SC1 and the new total war games. Not to mention going back to warhammer 40k which has always been better since SC was a rip off of 40k to begin with
In truth, it can be fun for a little while, but there's just not enough there to justify the price tag. There's one more day of open beta I believe so you should check it out first. Just remember there's no rush to buy it on release or preorder, You won't gain anything except for a few shitty hero reskins. Wait and see what happens, maybe watch some streams but in my opinion the game became stale pretty quickly and after a few matches I'm ready to move on to something else.
>>683274916 Hots isn't a flop, any moba that would come out will basically flop now, because people invested too much time into the existing ones already. I wouldn't want to leave my Dota account that has all those cosmetics, so why would anyone. That is what happened, Dota 1 was really unpolished and a mod you had to dig up and spend so much time to understand how to use items, UI and shit. Then LoL came, it made stuff way easier and more accessible to the more casual crowd. Then Dota 2 came and it's the second most played moba, so HotS for being the nth moba, it's still surprising how many people still play it. SC2 is just way too difficult for people that don't have natural talent or a shit-ton of time, to get in to, also, RTS games aren't as popular as they once were. WoW expansions weren't as bad as people like to shitpost, but it still is a very popular game, although that could be because people don't want to leave their long-lasting accounts.
>>683275891 That's your call but I've been done with blizzard since I lived through them ruining 3 of my favorite games the Diablo series starcraft and wow (holy shit those faggot's won't let vanilla servers or wotk servers live in piece) fuck those assholes
"And by the way you think you do but you don't "
-another blizzard ads hole (they have 1 or two per dev team per game)
>>683275836 Actually what they're doing is salvaging a titanic wreck of an expensive project. Titan was going to be this WoW killing all encompassing next-gen MMO and they fucked that up so bad they knew it. So in a very short time from giving up on that they've spun those assets into this.
I'm having a ton of fun during the beta weekend but a major complaint I have is their play of the game algorithm. I feel like it should definitely try to judge how much skill a play took as well as how many people were killed.
>>683276237 >>683276191 I was diamond SC2 but I dropped it because of their shit ballance updates every fucking other week. Week after week nerfing things until there was literally only 1 viable build for each faction Terran= MMM all day fuck that I want options I want to be able to supreme someone. Instead the game turned into a snooze fest
>>683276834 Nope not autistic at all. I just like to come home on the weekends and play games. But I have a great disdain for companies that ignore their fans advice and act like they know what the fans want more than the fans
Look if you haven't played warhammer 40k I'm not about to start explaining this shit, just Google SC ripped of warhammer 40k
>>683276352 They're having a talk with the lads behind private servers with possibility of bringing them in. It is just that if Blizzard won't contest the private servers they may lose the rights of the IP which, you know, would fucking suck for them.
Yall mother fuckers need some friends to play with. I've been hyped for Overwatch since day one, preordered origins edition and everything. Played the shit out of the open beta this week since didn't get into closed beta. I think the game is awesome and sure some heroes seem super unbalanced but there's a counter to all of them. There's also the fact that you can do stupid shit like have a full team of soldiers and still dominate the map.
>>683278901 Read >>683274916 Anyone who liked D3 is a cockmongling Blizzard fan boy faggot who doesn't know what made D2 great. The original D2 dev team shat all over D3 and they were 100% right. And I won't repeat why Sc2 sucks. It only started sucking 8 months into the release because they literally changed it from the game it was into something different. That's all fine and dandy if they want to change a game but they have to wait until the next release and not the next patch
>>683279558 Not true I had several successful hybrid builds that did well I'm pvp and pve it didn't work for all classes but for a hybrid death knight blood/frost tank it worked gloriously I was top tank on server
>>683279558 Even if that was the case (which it wasn't) it's up to the dev team to make other options viable or make the trees bigger but instead we got this shifty copout where they said "nope we would actually have to put work into making it better so we will just let you choose from a handful of abilities and only balance abilities to save time"
Its was fun for a little bit but got boring fast. The game in horribly balanced and there are no where near enogh heros to keep it interesting. The fact that they sre trying to chrage full price for it proves yet again that blizzard if filled with hreedy jews
>>683272835 >>683273310 >>683275270 These are the people who never apply themselves to anything. They can't see any hidden potential on their own, so they wait for knowledgeable experts to spoon feed it to everyone. Overwatch nailed everything. Best multiplayer game on the market. Mark my words.
>>683282625 No I played it and found it lackluster. I don't need a reviewer to tell me that it's good to like it there are already plenty of reviewers saying that it's the game of the century like the blizzard fan boys they are.
Reviewers also said Destiny was good and look at that game now
>>683278238 TF2 has lots of hats though, lots of weapons, source engine. There is so much shit you can do, from hardcore competitive gaming to going balls deep into economics and trading and profiting. It is not limited to a couple of gamemodes and a couple of maps. The fact that this game is still popular after almost 9 years since release kinda tells you something.
Blizzard can do all the same shit, add more heroes, weapons, hats, gamemodes, release SDK's for community to create shit of their own. But the question is, will they do it? And the answer is probably not. Why try hard to make game good, when you can just overhype it prior to release and reap dem 60 euros per copy?
Im just ranting by this point. What i meant to say is - blizzards are fucking faggots.
This statement may come off as ignorant because I don't follow blizzard like moths to a flame, but can we just remember that people have, still, and will continue to pay subscription to WoW regardless of the new, dare I say "IP", that they come out with. So even if Overwatch or Hero's of the Storm flops, who cares?
>>683280902 That's not even an argument. I'm entitled to get my money's worth, yes. This game is definitely not worth the price point, but you'd know that if you had to spend your own money and not your parents'. Those who think that there is $40 worth of content in Overwatch seriously need to take a step back and take a closer look at the game, instead of eating all the hype that's been spoon fed to you. In the end, if you want to waste your parents' money on a half finished game be my guest. Just don't come back to /b/ or go to /v/ in a month complaining how stale the game has become.
>>683285558 Yes, it is. There's a problem when at least 1/3 of the play of the games are Bastion sitting in the corner waiting for people to pass so he can mow them down.. Doesn't make for very exciting games.
>>683286556 Bastion dies instantly if you have a Sniper. Once you start killing him, they'll need a Reinhardt and a healer to babysit him to keep him alive, in which case you've probably either won because they diverted resources from an alternate route, or they're now grouped up enough for a Zarya combo team kill.
>>683285237 I'd argue that it is, TF2 is just an ugly, and personality lacking game that's free because it gets people onto Steam, which is a store where Valve makes way more money than off CS:GO, Dota2 or TF2, those games are just to get people onto the platform, the only reason why CS:GO isn't free is to get rid of some amount of hackers.
>>683287109 I'm not saying there's no counter, I'm just saying I believe his sentry mode does a bit too much damage. When one hero is consistently getting play of the game there is a problem. Alternatively I also think that some heroes' ultimates are too powerful. With the press of one button you can wipe half of a the enemy team on certain heroes. There isn't a lot of skill involved in that. I'm not saying I didn't have fun for a little while, but it is entirely too much like TF2 and the newness wore off quickly for me.
>>683288071 You'd argue that saying I'm entitled is an argument? No, it's not. If I, or anyone else, shell out money for a game I expect there to be enough content to keep me interested for a few months. I lost interest in his game in days. There is simply not $40 worth of content in Overwatch. I no longer play TF2, but it has plenty of personality. So much personality in fact that Blizzard felt that they had to rip straight from it. You can argue semantics and say that Overwatch is 'inspired' by TF2, but that's a lie. Having a payload variety of map in Overwatch is disgusting, they took no effort to add upon or change it in anyway. It's just payload. There are also a ton of similarties in hero ablities, some straight from TF2.
>>683289799 http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=overwatch what in the fucking fuck, the PC version is actually more expensive (well it's $0.10 but still) than console version. they can suck a fat dick.
>>683290177 It won't go Free to play, at least not for a year or two, and more than enough people will play it. I'm really enjoying it, unlike TF2. And besides, its really cheap, and 130€ isn't that bad either
>>683290682 No, you claimed the game should be free, would you rather they sold heroes and skins beside that? Hell no, look at Heroes of the Storm, that's a shit game because of a shitty business model. blizzard can't do proper business models like Dota 2.
>>683289570 > If I, or anyone else, shell out money for a game I expect there to be enough content to keep me interested for a few months Then lower your expectations. You're setting yourself up for failure, and "a few months" for $40 is a steal. You're expecting something almost unrealistic.
