    BTW Goose, sorry about bailing on that invite yesterday. I had had a string of bad games and needed to make some dinner, so I decided to take a break.

    I'm probably gonna pick this up if I have some extra cash at the end of the pay period
    Normally I don't care about purely multiplayer games, I need some kind of story and lore in-game to keep me interested, but this just seems so dang fun

    I'm usually the same way but at 150 hours played, I can say it is still amazingly fun.

    the main way I can tell this game has a lot in common with TF2 is that I keep playing it

    most shooters I kind of fall away from after a bit, but I have a lot of fun with this one. I wish more people here were playing on the xbox, though, I'm mostly pugging it up

    I found that I used Zenyatta's alt fire so infrequently that I rebound discord orb to mouse2. Really frees up my left hand for movement.

    Yeah I use zenyatta charge shot at the beginning of match and if I see someone coming around a corner with Hanzo or widow wall hack. That's about it.

    it's pretty much exclusively for poking around a corner at a stationary target like a bastion

    which is a bad niche for someone with zen's range and squish

    i like having it to pick off attackers coming through the door at the start of the match

    but yeah i usually forget about it in the middle of a fight

    Maybe i'd use it more if using harmony and discord orbs didn't cancel it and you could hold the charge indefinitely instead of it auto-releasing after holding it a bit longer than the max charge time

    Just watched my son play the weekly brawl, only Pharah or Mercy and a very short cooldown on Pharah's jump jet. Total chaos, looked like fun

    It would seem we are all agreement about zenny's alt fire.

    we're all in agreement that you should probably just pick another character instead of zenyatta, yes

    zenyatta is great.

    One time I had a torb and a symettra on my team and was amazed at how powerful he is at 250hp

    It was double great because I could take a ton of shield damage before they even got to the armor so it lasted forever.

    My friend is working on a roguelike game you can play if you want to. (It has free demo)

    Still undefeated as Symmetra, granted it's only four games and only on defense, but still.

    maybe I would care about discord orb if Zen wasn't already dead from a single headshot.

    Zen, Tracer, and D.Va out of Mech, you mean? D.Va doesn't really count, and Tracer has mobility, when counterpicking a specific character yes, I feel like this should be taken into consideration.

    Like from widow or in genreal from the headshot-enabled weapons? The entire non-tank cast dies in a single 100% headshot from widow.

    much like Reinhardt cover, symmetra shields, torbjorn armor, and lots of other things need to be taken into consideration

    not to mention, "just land a headshot with your slow projectile, whenever you need to, on the character with the smallest head hitbox, while you're taking +50% damage from all sources as the character everyone loves to focus already" is like

    sure

    if you think you can do that reliably

    by all means

    Competitive mode is live on PC (in NA at least), unfortunately this is also happening


    my ping to the overwatch servers is very high so I guess I'll wait a bit to try it out

    Again, some nice quality games with fellow PAers on the PS4 :biggrin:

    Some of the games are a big slog, and I noticed I am most irritated by characters I am bad at or even haven't tried out yet :lol:

    And then you get put on a team which has 2 Widowmakers and a Mercy, and I never saw the Mercy heal or rez anyone... Fleety pointed out that he saw her heal the Widowmakers...

    And then we had someone in the team who was called something like XAWSOMEKIDX or something (the name starting and ending with X and with an E was already taken?) who was a Mercy who mainly used her pistol...

    Anyhow, I noticed that playoverwatch or masteroverwatch are not updating their profiles, so I guess patch incoming? :winky: . Let the hunt for the golden D.Va guns begin :twisted:

    Yeah zenny has an obvious survivability issue, definitely a big factor in why I mostly prefer to play mercy. That and his ult feeling far less impactful and harder to use since it has to be used before people die instead of afterwards.

    I think maybe mercy ult should charge the slowest of the three healer ults because it is the easiest to use effectively, actually. You can't even press the button unless there's someone dead in range. Or make zen's ult radius twice as large and make it and sound barrier last 50% longer or something.

    zeny's ult is super strong, but it is tough to use

    it's generally best to hold it until they throw out a graviton surge or something

    So now that we've each established that we're individually right and everyone else is mistaken or willfully ignorant, worthy only of sarcasm, where do we to from here?

    Also, apparently there's some DDoSing going on that's causing lag/disconnects to bnet.
