Not sure how much attention this will get, but it would be nice to have more people to play with in Overwatch and group up. You get a 20% EXP bonus for just being in a party. There are a few in this thread, but I think this might get more attention for PC players outside of posting directly into the Steam Discussion Thread in the Deals section.

 

 

 

Feel free to friend people on the list in the wiki and add yourself to the list as well. People who communicate, preferably with mics, would be greatly appreciated.

Posted my info. Don't forget that grouping up not only increases your win chances, it's pretty fun and 20% bonus xp for more loot and leveling.

Posted my info, I usually play with my college buddies so I may jump out to play with them, but I will still be open to playing with CAG's whenever I am not with them.

 

I don't have a favorite hero to play as, I play whatever class the team needs at that point.

I added my stuff yesterday but may be busy most of the weekend.  Literally a noob with this.  Played a warm up against the bots and played one one of the characters so new but willing to learn.

Hey guys, I sent everyone on the list a friend request. I need some help with Overwatch because  I completely suck at the game so far. Hit me up if you need another body.  O:)

I'd say filling whatever character is needed at the time is pretty common though. On defense for escort and assault maps, I usually play Symmetra who has the highest win % of all the characters for the first point and then switch (Except for maybe Route 66 & Dorado). I generally prefer healing (Mercy), but use Lucio almost exclusively for control maps. Though I do some offensive or tanking when I get tired of that.

 

I don't really snipe at all. I used to be pretty good at it, but these days I suck pretty hard at it. I swear my shots are more accurate than the times I get killed from a sniper though.

Added my ID. Game is scratching my TF2 itch wonderfully. I see me sticking with this one for a while.

 

Unfortunately, didn't pack a mic with me on my move, so if you guys catch me online for about the next month, I'll be playing mic-less.

Man, some of you guys are high level.  Wish I could play the game more.  Definitely a lot of fun especially when you can pull off stuff like this:

Experience per level caps off at level 23 with 22k per level. When you hit level 100, you go back to 1 and are essentially getting a new frame every 10 levels for at least 1890 total levels. Plus most experience gained is just by simply playing the match via time invested. But yeah, played a fair amount early on. Not playing quite as much now as I did then.

 

For the next couple weeks I'll probably be playing a single player game or two. So if anybody messages me between 6PM and 10PM Eastern, I should usually respond and will likely be up for playing some games. I don't really play past 11PM Eastern. Though I'm fairly certain that's when nitro gets most of his game time in.

Need to watch videos for strategies! Since im fairly new to this game. (Never did the betas), im getting a beating most of the time. Hehe! I do follow instructions and try to stay with groups. I tend to play alot of defense char like junkray and torbjorn. I did some reinhardt during payload matches and get the concept of the shield but it seems like i cant kill at all due to him to slow. For offense, i got lucky and got a lengendary skin for genji so im using more of hom then any other offese char. Not sure how to use his specials properly though. Lol!

This weeks Weekly Brawl is Random Heroes that change every time you spawn/respawn. I think I kinda like this one over the last two. Though the first one was good for learning ultimates while this one is good for learning characters you don't normally play. Be prepared to lose though as team composition is highly random.

I did a couple of brawlmatches this week. Yaeh! Its hard with constant char change evrytime you respawn. Its usually a given that the team carrying the payload will lose. Its already hard playing it with random players it became harder with random character respawns! Just hit level 23 i think.

Did anyone of use guys buy loot crates? Ended up buying crayes just to get skins. Hehe! Lucky i ended up with a couple of legendaries skins for the characters that i usually llay like junkrat, thorbjorn, and genji. Hehe!

I am not going to be buying loot crates. Nothing against them, but I think it partially ruins the fun for me. I have fun getting a loot box and then having that Fuck moment when it sucks. Just paying for them takes out the effort of trying to get one and it would feel less important to me once I earned one.

Yeah, loot crates seem appealing to purchase early on but aren't really worth it. You can get duplicates, which provide you with 1/5th of their purchase value with 5 coins being the lowest I believe.

 

I think I've gotten the following legendaries:

- 500 Coins

- Toa Roadhog (x2; 2nd was 200 coins for a dupe)

- Young Hanzo

- Odile Widowmaker

- Frogston Winston

- Breakaway Lucio (Hockey w/ Mask)

 

I'm level 70 currently though. So that means I've gotten one about every 10 boxes. In coins, I have about 2100 coins and have bought two intros for Zenyatta and Mercy. Have a few others that I haven't bought but only a few. Still not sure what I'm going to spend my coins on. (Based on numbers from a bunch of people you should typically get a legendary about 6-10% of the time. Unfortunately having shit luck doesn't help.)

Will be on a bit starting tomorrow now that I am back from vacation and finished up with the crap jobs necessary to (hopefully) stop water from coming into my basement.  Ugh.  Sorry for lack of playing but I've added everyone who friended me before I left on vacation.

I have come to realize the past few days how OP Tobjorn is. The past few days my experience has been how good the Tobjorn is on defense will determine my chance of winning because a lot more people are playing him now. It used to be every few games, but now it's like every 1/2 games on defense there is at least one. Especially since his ult charges insanely fast and he can get a turret up in no time. I really don't have a problem with any other champ atm, just Tobjorn.

 

He is even more broken on consoles.

I do agree that Torbjörn's ultimate charges a bit too fast, but the only times I have trouble with him is when the rest of the enemy team is performing very well or my team is performing pretty shitty (Which is hard to tell apart and usually a combination of the two).

 

I've gone against a stacked Torbjörn team of 5 + 1 Symettra recently on Route 66 as well and didn't really have much of an issue. My team members stayed behind my Reinhardt shield allowing me to take most of the turret fire and we took out their turrets really quick then downed them pretty easily. I don't think they stored up much scrap for the extra armor boost during their ultimate and dropped pretty quick when they did use their ultimate. Though if they were more competent/coordinated, then I think we may have had more of an issue but our composition to fight back against them as pretty good out of the gate and my team was pretty well coordinated.

 

I do think the turret will get nerfed on consoles, but I'm not too sure about PC. Maybe a slight nerf but I don't think more than that will happen. It might just be how much the turret effects the ultimate gain speed for Torb. Though I think Widowmaker needs that nerf as well with how fast her ultimate becomes available and how long it lasts.

I agree - I think Torbs are infinitely more annoying to console players than they are for PC players. Part of the issue I think lies with the age groups playing, it seems to me that the console players are younger and don't typically build around their opposition, rather going mostly for whoever is gonna do more damage (I like to call it The Call of Duty Effect).

 

On top of the disadvantage console players have with movement due to the controller limitations, stacking 5 Torbs and basically just turret AFKing for a win isn't a horrible solution.

 

I would, however, like to see a slight change to the charge rate for Mei's ult. Someone with as much damage potential and survivability shouldn't be able to just mass freeze an entire team on a point as quickly as she can.

New character announcement, Anna, the sniper healer. She has an interesting loadout too from the looks of things that could potentially be really powerful if you don't suck at sniping.

 

 

 

It also looks like they will be implementing a one hero per team limit in Competitive mode, which will be patched in soon. The patch will also include buffs to Zenyatta and D.Va. Also if you didn't know already, then they are also removing Sudden Death in Season 2 of Competitive mode. PTR Patch Notes.

She's like Hanzo but better.

 

Also worse.

Yeah, I tested her out on the training grounds a bit on PTR. Her heals have insane hitbox, which is probably good. More so since she doesn't have any movement mechanics like Widowmaker/Genji/Hanzo to get really good vantage points. On the other hand, the hitbox when damaging the enemy team is much more normal. Oh and she can't crit on healing or damage.

 

That heal grenade though... If you hit enemies with it, you prevent healing for a short duration. Serious potential there depending on how easy it is to throw accurate which unfortunately did not test. Cooldown isn't terrible either.

So i tried competitve play 2 weeks ago and got 5 wins out of 10 and got 48 for my initial placement rating. 15 games later, im down to level 39. Crap! Kept on getting paired with people who only wants to get kills and and not do the objectives. Most of the ones i get paired are barely inthe 30s. It was also the time were heroes can stack so the other team cheeses! Pisses me off.

Wished the cap to open Competitve play was higher than 25. That would have helped alot in screening out casual players.

Sucks that gaining levels is so much harder than losing levels. Since im stuck on the lower level pool right now with crappy players and probably zero team spirit, i may have to wait playing CP again until the next season.

Unless things have changed it's still currently bugged so that if someone leaves, the win nets you a minimal amount of experience (I think loses are the same when someone leaves? I can't remember). This can make it really hard to level up if most of your wins have someone on the other team that leaves (Even if it's in the last 10 seconds). Until they fix that, I won't touch competitive. Leaving too many games can get you banned from the season, however it apparently isn't strong enough since there seem to be a significant amount of leavers still.

 

Currently the only reason to play competitive would be to gain points to buy gold weapon skins with the points you accumulate for winning. I'm not really a fan of the gold weapon skins, so I don't think I'll touch this season.

New update that gives limited time loot box items, including skins on some characters. Can't buy with in-game currency (Boo) and one guaranteed item from normal loot boxes. Lasts until August 23rd.

 

I want some of the skins (Red Mercy, Sprinter Tracer, Soccer Lucio), so I'll probably be playing a bit more than I have lately. Though I thought more characters would have skins, like the sprays they showed such as Table Tennis Mei. Sad.

 

EDIT: Lucioball is kinda cool.
