Meh, piggly wiggly has a self heal. He's a one man apocalypse, as it were.

Idk, seems like there's a healer or support more often than not overall
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The game has little notifications when your team doesn't meet specifications. That's generally enough for people to go "well, okay I guess" and plonk themselves into a support.

The game might could use some good supports, though.

True.  Lot of mediocre supports.  However you occasionally get the great ones that can absolutely turn the tide.  Had a Mercy yesterday who did a whole team revive 3 times on Route 66.  Each time they were in overtime, just short of reaching the checkpoint.

And on the other side of things, there's a lot of players who don't properly keep on eye on their support.  When you've got a healer watching you back, the least you can do is help them when they're getting harrased by someone they can't fight back against easily.

They were saying it was a ban from Overwatch. But it is /v/ so you never know.

I also heard there was a lack of people willing to play healers or support. That's my bread and butter. Do we need healers?

Always been the healer as well, tf2 especially I can't do twitch shooting especially with guns that require you to keep dodging while trying to hit the other guy dodging you (I hate video game automatic weapons they all feel like tickle guns to me). I only find success with one hit kill shot guns by trying sneak in close.

Healing on the other hand is easy just a matter of working out who to prioritise your healing on.

I just checked and my computer is well below the system requirements for Overwatch, which is good because it was starting to look really tempting and I just don't want that sort of time sink right now. :Y
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

That's surprising.  The game is exceptionally well optimized.  My buddy could run it even on his toaster of a macbook.

There've been reports that it runs better than TF2, on some machines.

TF2 is terribly optimised. If you can play TF2 without an FPS config Overwatch will probably work fine.
Not a winner anymore.
