How was there not a thread for this? I checked three pages back, did a search; nothing.

Anyway, here's Tyrion Lannister and his mom playing Overwatch with Conan O'Brien.

My Blizzardsteam handle is TerminalED#1408 if anyone ever wants to play with me. I play a lot of the two best characters, Zenyatta and Roadhog. A little less of Mei, Junkrat, and Tracer.

Is this even worth getting?
I mean it looks alright and I haven't played a multi fps since tf2 was good.
But is it even worth it without friends? I mean, I hear you really need to counter what's out there and I'm not sure if you can have fun in public servers with a bunch of losers charging to their deaths as the sniper as usual.

Yeah it's pretty fun

Are those really the best characters? I've yet to see a tier list but I play those basically all the time
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Huh, I thought Peter Dinklage had a british accent.  Probably a combination of him having one on the show, and him looking like Hugh Laurie.
Probably not a Goat, either.

No, I . The characters seem pretty balanced, although there are fairly hard counters between them. I just like them. Mei is actually considered one of the weakest characters, recieving very little competitive play. She's a bit of a pubstomper, though, since average players tend to have a hard time aiming well enough at close range to hit.

Is this even worth getting?
It's TF2 But Better in the same way that Vermintide is L4D But Better, or Discord is Skype But Better. If you like TF2, it's probably worth at least a look.

Also that fiasco involving Tracer's ass is the only reason I ever paid any attention to this game at all.
And by this game I mean Tracer's ass.
Picture unrelated.

This is literally the only thing I know about this game as well. Nobody I know plays it or was hype about it.

Not saying that makes it a bad game. It looks pretty and is probably fun but god damn another shooter? Great. But it probably wasn't made for me.

Actually it might have been. You can play as a ripoff of the TF2 Medic and all the maps are horrible chokepoints like Dustbowl.

But respawn times are extra-long.
Not a winner anymore.

It sounded awesome.

Then it sounded not.

Respawn timers are shorter than TF2, and they don't change. They stay at what they are, around seven seconds, throughout the whole game.

It's the walk back to the point that's long, if you don't have a Symmetra.

I dunno where you guys go, but I've been hearing people talk about it constantly.

It does look very polished, and the amount of classes makes it look interesting,
Even though they nearly copy pasted all the 9 tf2 classes.

And its also nice that you get them all out of the gate, and you don't have to grind for character unlocks or that bull****.
Apparantly the game is designed around switching out characters to counter whatever is out there, but that probably wont stop people from picking the edgy guy and the sniper 100% of the time.
I dunno, I stopped playing tf2 only because it turned to absolute ****, not because I got burned out. So I wonder if this can scratch that itch, and how long it'll take to become free to play with 8trillion hats.
