Why does Blizzard think this is acceptable?
>>
Because blizzdrones will eat it up and beg for more.
>>
Two of my friends are in the beta and they don't stream or anything.

It looks fucking garbage regardless and will only do well because it's a casual NeoBlizz game.
>>
>>315634231
Streamers are the new "gaming journalism", but it is more than just PR.
Streamers influence a lot of gamers and many many people believe that the amount of views directly translate into the game being good. Also, lots of people play games today because they want to fit in and feel the need to be legitimated by others in order to enjoy a game. So a game with a big and relevant community helps create that illusion. That's where streamers come in.
Gamers also can't differentiate a game journalist's critic from a streamer's opinion, because let's be honest, they are worth the same.
>>
>>315634231
They need to milk something now that wow is dead so why not ripoff f2p games and put a 60$ pricetag on it

wait, so if I asked for a beta invite a week back, I only have a chance to get it every weekend, or some special weekends?
give me my fucking invite I gave you enough money already blizzard

>>315636198

Only special weekends, yes. If you're not in the beta now, that's all you're gonna get until full release.

How can anyone get even slightly hyped by this.

Its a modern blizzard game, so its casual garbage per default.
Also the blizzard comic look is the worst artstyle in the industry.

Looks shit in WoW,D3 and SC2.
It doesnt fit the later 2 at all.

Blizzard doesnt give a shit about people who signed up for the beta.
If you signed up for the beta that means you are going to play the game on release, doesnt matter if you get in beta, because to them a beta signup is basically a pre-order to the pre-order of the game.

Blizzard is only concerned with the people who didnt sign up for the beta, thus the streamers to get those people interested in the game.

>Only streamers and youtubers allowed to play indefinitely
Random people far outnumber streamers and youtubers in the beta right now.

>Everyone else has to wait for specific INVITE-ONLY weekends to play with limited heroes and maps (we league now
Or, you might be lucky and get a random invite like everyone else.

And there will be no limited heroes or maps. They've said multiple times that all heroes will be playable by everyone from the get-go. There will be no fucking hero rotation.

>No more full-access beta invites for anyone who isn't already in
You're just pulling shit out of your dumb asshole.

>$60 price tag, won't include all heroes
Nope.

>Will still have microtransactions
For skins and cosmetics.
>>
>>315636836

It started off looking like a fun, competitive TF2. Unfortunately Blizzard decided to slap a $60 price tag on a F2P model, alienating almost every potential player.
>>
>>315636773
xbone psquattro

this explains why its 6v6
>>
>>315636803
thats because there were idiots and invited all the goddamn hearthstone streamers who are shit at the game because it requires some basic motor and reactionary skills.

who the fuck thought it was a good idea to include people who only play online card games into an FPS test. when the player is shit it makes the game look like shit.
>>
>>315634231
actually it's $40 and only if you want skins and other ingame blizzard items, otherwise it's F2P with all characters free from the start for everyone.

But sure, keep spreading misinformation.

Better get that thought out of your head, activison will force them to make it as casual as possible to attract the largest possible crowd.

Any of their multiplayer games except starcraft 2 is uncompetitive and casual as shit

You clearly don't know how to read, dumb nigger.

It's ONLY $40 if you want SKINS OR OTHER INGAME ITEMS FOR OTHER BLIZZARD GAMES

THE BASE GAME IS FREE

FREE
FREE

ZERO DOLLARS

>>
>>315634231
Blizzard has tested this new mentality with wow and hearthstone and realised its the best way to earn BIG BUCKS while not having to do much work at all .
Its not about making good products that generate good money, Its about doing as little as possible for as much money they can charge.

Wow will never be good again, overwatch will generate good money just like hearthstone. Stop expecting blizzard to deliver games again, those days are long gone.

And blizzard doesnt have to justify anything, they have built up an enormous fanbase of ignorant americans who will jump to their defense before they even get a chance to read the criticism.

It's heavily implied that anything that comes out after the original 20 heroes will have to be purchased.
>>
>>315637063
because people who have interest on it they don't need marketing, they want more new players from different genres.

Someone who likes to play mmos dont need advertisement of WoW he knows about WoW already.

Security Chief Pharah
Slipstream Tracer

Overwatch-themed content for several Blizzard Entertainment games:

This is really just the heroes of the storm starter kit again

You're both right and wrong on some of your points here.

Activision bought candy crush. Blizzard isn't much more than brand recognition.

That list is bullshit. It's just a fucking mock up made by some douche who works at gamestop and made a false receipt ticket. It's not fucking real.

Blizzard would not include a 'heroes included' count because ALL of the fucking heroes will be FREE and AVAILABLE for ALL players

Why do you people keep parroting shit that is clearly not fucking true

The way it has been worded, is that if you buy the origin edition it comes with 21 unlocked heroes. Now whether that means the game is shipping with 21 heroes or that you will get 21 and have to unlock the others is not clear.
