DO I GET IT OR NOT

I have a faggot friend who wont stop raving about how awesome Overwatch is.

Should I play it?
Pros?
Cons?
>>
Pro: Games are short. Game is new and has support.

Cons: It's not as deep as quake 3 arena or even TF2, but fucks sake anon, it's the best we've had since TF2 and TF2's in the shitter thanks to valve being complete fucking shitflinging monkeys. Even CSGO is suffering.

Just get it, you'll get your money's worth.
>>
overwatch is the faglord version of tf2. its the same with cod. all the kids praisin it as the best game and its still shit. same goes for overwatch. retards sayin its good doesnt make it good
>>
what does it give me that Rainbow 6 siege, titanfall, planetside 2, don't give me?

Pro: not a subcription based/p2w game made by Blizzard

Con: fanbase is annoying as fuck, but some people in-game are okay
>>
>>717443795
Just buy it faggot. You'll get your money's worth. It's decently fun.
>>
who are the most [spoiler]fun[/spoiler] characters?
>>
>>717444154
As for whats different, the people you play as have certain abilities that you wouldn't see in something like Cod, R6 siege, or battlefield. Honestly just look at some detailed gameplay videos and decide for yourself.
>>
>>717444366
All of them are fairly well made and feel like they're different characters for a reason. Some are more shallow, but characters like Genji are fun as fuck to play if you got good map/game sense.

Just try them all.
>>
Community is toxic as fuck. Kids screeching into your ear constantly. People get real shitty with you if you're trying to learn a new character in quick play. "B-buh m-muh m-main!!!!"
>>
>>717443795
It's fun with friends. I don't play it alone but when I have friends on I have a blast.
If your buddy is going to be consistently on I'd say go for it.
>>
Play fucking Mei and I will gut you faggot
>>
Pros: Overwatch is a great fucking game, it's extremely well made and it looks great and feels great. There are tons of heroes with unique playstyles, the majority of which are fun as hell to play with. It has a ton of support, millions of players, holiday events, many various game modes, and it's good for both casuals and pros.

Cons: massively high skill cap means the majority of players are absolutely terrible, so if you're planning on queuing for matches solo, prepare to lose most games you play due to constantly being placed with retards. The hero lineup is sjw heaven, and you'll constantly find yourself asking how cool the designs could have been if they weren't trying to force that fat non-white girl in there. This is not the blizzard of old, this is warlords of Draenor blizzard and they will fuck it up with the dumbest changes imaginable eventually.
>>
>>717445160
The community in a nutsell. "You can't play this character because idk how to counter so listen to me rage and whine"
>>
>>717443795
it sounds like a game popular with kids, which I generally avoid.

there's nothing like having to listen to some little 12 year old shit head tell me he's going to rape my mother

titanfall/ps2 are trash.

siege is nothing like overwatch other than being a team based shooter.

you'll get your money's worth. overwatch is on sale right now so just buy it.
>>
>>717443795
Overwatch deserves its game of the year award, but there is one thing you absolutely must be aware of: it's a team game. If you don't have friends to play with, you're going to lose every game you play, because you will be handed the dumbest motherfuckers imaginable over and over and it doesn't matter how good you are if your team doesn't know what it's doing.
>>
>>717445255
High skill cap. Sure.
>>
>>717445255
Equally, think how boring it would all be if every character was a muscular white male with blonde hair and blue eyes
>>
Pros: Incredibly polished, great character design, fun, rewarding learning curve with each character
Cons: Matches can end up feeling impossible to win, not a great variety of maps and gamemodes
>>
>>717445519
Can aim = master/grandmaster

Can't aim = diamond.

that's the skill categories in overwatch.

It gets repetitive over time, Somehow I was more excited about "Paladins" which is also the same thing but you can get different upgrades and builds to make your own strategy

>>717445255
>massively high skill cap means the majority of players are absolutely terrible, so if you're planning on queuing for matches solo, prepare to lose most games

Overwatch matches you up with players on your skill level noob. I only play with masters and grandmasters
>>
>>717443795
no just play counter-strike. every first person shooter is a worse version of counter-strike
>>
>>717445585
Sounds great to me.
>>
>>717445585
I said sjw heaven, saying that they took it way, way too far. I don't think anybody wants a lineup of soldier 76s, but making Mei fat and Zarya gender-confused is just uneccesary. I'm sure China and Russia are just thrilled to see their heroes, while Korea and Japan got dva and genji, who are great designs.

Although I'm sure that sjws are still finding it not diverse enough.
>>
>>717446017
Zarya seems like she's female, but swole.

Mei's not even fat. I'm sorry. Blizz is playing it sefe. I mean fucks sake, Tracer, the white lanky girl with spandex pants and spiky hair is the token lesbian... with another white girl?

That's.... so incredibly safe of blizzard. You think it's SJW heaven, it's basically blizzard playing the sjws like a fiddle and doing their fetishes in peace. Even the girls on the team are doing their fujo shit. I mean Hanzo? Genji? Junkrat?

Sure sjws and ethicalfags will argue, but when I look at overwatch, it's a game with blizzdevs waifus and husbandos and some robots thrown in for good measure.
>>
>>717445915
No it doesn't, and no you don't.

Since you obviously don't play ow, I'll explain how it works. When you enter competitive for the first time, you're placed in a series of placement matches. If you get placed with bad teammates and lose every game, you start at the bottom of the barrel, and it's impossible to get out because you will just be placed with bad teammates over and over.
>>
>>717446542
if you can't get out of plat that's on you.

People can't aim for shit in platinum, just headshot them.
>>
>>717446542
I have 250+ hours logged in Overwatch. You can move up in skill tiers it just takes time. Even playing solo competetive its impossible to lose every match unless its your first time playing
>>
>>717446017
Youre missing my entire point.

Just think of how badass Mei and Zarya could have been if they weren't pandering to the malcontent hypocrite crowd. A snow queen and a badass Russian mercenary with a giant laser cannon, and we get unhealthy weight, and a pink-haired butch lesbo.

how the fuck is mei unhealthy weight

in all the art with her clothes off she's like half woman and half ass and tits with a midsection so small you could wrap your hands around them. Zarya's just female Zangief for no reason.

There's no pandering.

I know people are very thin skinned and easy to trigger when it comes to sjw shittery but it's so mild and inconsequential in overwatch.
>>
>>717446730
No, that's not how it works. There's a phrase called elo hell that describes the "unable to get out of low ranks due to shitty players no matter how good you are" issue. It's a common criticism of overwatch and has been acknowledged by devs as a serious problem.

Placement matches should be based on individual achievements and not wins and losses. That would fix the problem right away.
>>
>>717443795
My friends are obsessively playing it, too. It's basically a shooter for casuals, not even trying to sound condescending.

It's honestly barely a shooter. Maps are small and linear, and your weapons are more like a collection of abilities than weapons like you're used to. There's a character who's a play on traditional shooters, with an assault rifle, and one of his powers is that he can sprint. This is one of those games where different characters having different set-in-stone mobility options is part of the game.

The idea is that you learn to play these different characters and figure out how to best apply those skills. There's no such thing as a sniper jumping on the point and taking out a heavier class through skill. The different characters are kind of rock paper scissors at times.

You are also highly dependent on your team, which frankly fosters some real salt from players, and can make it incredibly frustrating. No healer, or a shitty healer? You ded. No tank or a shitty tank? You ded.

A lot of people compare this to TF2, but having played the shit out of TF2 and having become proficient at it, I don't echo that. This game is nothing like TF2, in terms of "game feel". In TF2, you can outplay any class with any other class. In Overwatch, you can't. In TF2 you can play independently from your team and still contribute. In Overwatch, you can't. In TF2 each class can be played in several different ways. In Overwatch, they can't.

Pro's:
-Lots of different characters with different roles and abilities
-Visual design is top notch
-Matches are quick and action-packed

Cons:
-The least shooter-like shooter you'll ever play
-Simplistic maps and game modes without any real personality of their own
-You will get salty, and there's nothing you can do about it
>>
>>717443795
Don't do it. Over hyped garbage
>>
Pro's: It's very polished, There are events that could make you go "hey that's kinda fun".
Cons: You can only win in this game. You can't play for fun or else you're trolling your team. No community support. Lootboxes are absolute cancer. Arcade is just pure shit that they don't know how to make fun in the slightest. You're pretty much forced to have certain classes. It's a 'press q 2 win'.

Let's talk about the 400 pound gorilla in the room guys...

Would you suck a log of shit out of Mei's deliciously fat asshole or not?
>>
YES!!! Its gr8! Its not like any other shooter I've played (no not even tf2). All the characters have different weapons, abilities and personalities which makes it really fun, the only dlc is for the box drops which aren't important so everything they add to the game is FREE! And blizzard do their best to help you if you are having technical problems.

And I guess the cons are that you can't choose the game mode and it takes a while to level up

Not really because Mercy is the best woman in Overwatch. Try and prove me wrong.
>>
>>717447164
There's so much strategy involved when you play "for real". Not talking about solo queue quick plays or even comp at low ranks. When you have a team that is talking to each other, overwatch is absolutely epic.

Sure it's casual when 70% of the player base doesn't have a mic and can't aim. Overwatch requires dedicated friends.
>>
>>717445255
>you'll constantly find yourself asking how cool the designs could have been if they weren't trying to force that fat non-white girl in there.

If you don't think Mei is cute, you are a faggot.

Either way, Blizzard actually did diversity right. These characters work as characters, and not solely as another box to tick off on some SJW's checklist. The characters have a bunch of different traits that define them, and race and heritage are only a part of that. A SJW iteration of Mei would be twice her size. A SJW iteration of Lucio would be a literal 19th century black slave. Reinhardt would be Merkel, and his power would be to let in the enemy team uncontested while he locks his own in the spawn.

Just get garden warfare or some shit. That has abilities, no ults, pretty good character customization (both cosmetic and gameplay wise), the healers aren't forced, the 2 teams are very different from each other. The only downsides imo are: it's quite unbalanced, the survival multiplayer has a part pay2win and it takes long to unlock other sets which you could also buy (on top of it being a payed game).
>>
Great game would recommend. Every character is different and fun to play but there is a lack of game modes which sucks.

I get what you mean, and if that's what you enjoy, Overwatch has it in spades. But it's an incredibly "narrow" game. You get that, but nothing else. It's obviously the way you ought to play it, but even with me coming in a few weeks later than my friends, the gap is noticable. Very few of my regular "gamer" skills apply. So as a game, it's very dependent on the players themselves having that communication.

And often I've found the more fanatical players to be annoyingly devoted, and incredibly salty and accusatory when you don't manage to read their fucking mind and do the right thing at the right time.

For me, Overwatch is just not really what I like, to be completely honest.

>>717447950
I see your point too. Sometimes I play overwatch all night and I'm like, man, what did I accomplish? Now I have to go to work again tomorrow and I did nothing all night.

At least in other games, you're advancing something or making progress in some way.

The team mates are shit. Only play if you have a group of 3 or more people to play with at a time.

Also ignore people saying to get TF2. That game has been destroyed by valves greed and a few other things. TF2 fanboys are but hurt about Overwatch for taking away their players.
>>
>>717448840
Fuckin this
>>
>>717448193
At the same time I appreciate there not being a grind to Overwatch. You get the game, and that's what you play. Even TF2 became a grind with all the different weapons. I only ever dropped the requisite first purchase on it, and I couldn't keep up with the newly released weapons. It's one of the things that finally made me check out of that game.

The other was, as you describe, that I realized I put 1016 hours into something with nothing to show for it. The best thing TF2 ever did for me was that I got my dick sucked while playing it, but I could have done the same bloody thing with Skyrim. I wouldn't have gotten Overwatch if I didn't have this many friends who all play it. Literally every regular friend I game with has this thing.

In the end, games are just diversions, so if you enjoy yourself, it's not really wasted time. But when you turn off the computer, games like this stop having an influence. You don't notice yourself a week later still thinking about something you did in Overwatch.

Overwatch is for casual gamers and sperglords. Play battleborn it got shit reviews because its characters aren't fuckable but at least it's gameplay is deeper then overhype

>>717445630
most retarded thing i've ever read
you could have the worst aim and still get to grandmaster by playing healers and tanks and by having good game sense and good team synergy
on the other hand you could have 90% hit accuracy across all heroes but if you have no idea what heroes to play and when to play them, and if you don't play with your team you'll find yourself stuck at plat, diamond at the very max

>>717443795
pro : fun game, most heroes are fun to play, getting really good with high skill cap heroes and developing good mechanics can be very rewarding (genji, widow, lucio etc)
con : meta is completely dead right now. at high levels of play, you can't win without playing 3 tanks/solider/ana and another healer or even 4 tanks and ana and another healer. this is because of how overpowered ana is right now, the fact that she can full heal 4 tanks pretty much constantly makes it so that all other healers are irrelevant (apart from lucio, who is useful for pretty much only speed boost). all the fun heroes i talked about therefore have no place in high level games (genji and widow are almost useless against a tank/ana comp)
