    I think Hanamura is my least favourite level. The initial assault on A seems like total feast or famine. What characters would people recommend for each side?

    I like D.va for attack. Pair her with a Tracer or Reaper then both of you go through the left window and around the side path. Grab the health pack them push the point to force defenders to leave the gate allowing the rest of your team to push through.

    I've had decent success with that tactic.

    Yes, if they have a Symmetra, never ever go right. Torb turrets will usually be either on the roof to the left or in the actual Obj A, usually facing backwards to catch people coming around the sides.

    there's basically no reason to go right at all if the defenders aren't using it as cover, but they always run into my sym microwave

    Don't get me wrong this game is great on consoles but I feel like the patch process is going to get weird as time goes on and the pc will always have better support.

    Though I personally can be way more accurate with a thumb stick than a mouse. Or at least if not accurate than acceptablly quick. I can't do things with a mouse like other players can. Putting a crosshair over a character just comes more natural to some people.

    I mean, you can play the game with a controller on the PC if you want. Or with a controller and a mouse.

    You will be hamstrung comparatively, but you can do it.

    There will probably be something that PC players get that console hobos like me don't - like Diablo 3 seasons, for instance. But the actual content patches have been equivalent across the board for Diablo. Consoles seem like something that have become a core part of Blizzard's business now.

  • UrielUriel Registered User regular
    That's my point. Other players with mice handicap my own in game performance to the point that pc shooters are no longer fun.

    the overwatch account tweeted that they were working on trying to get the patches out simultaneously

    but who knows if it'll happen anytime soon

    The last patch came out only a day or two after the PC one. Patch has already been submitted, it's just going through the console approval process.

    If it's any consolation I'm awful aiming with both a mouse and a thumbstick

    I sometimes have trouble hitting Symmetra's completely stationary turrets because I'm bad at slight adjustments

    I think Ana is going to make me get good, though, because I like how she plays

    I need to learn maps better so I can play Symmetra. There's a serious appeal to being able to lock down what would otherwise be a flanking route by filling it with laser turrets and also lurking in it to laser people for good measure

    I just got 2 eliminations, then a few seconds later, got a quad kill to round off the team kill. All in a short enough time to fit in the highlights they show in your menu.

    Didn't get PotG.

    I literally murdered everyone, videogame, with their payload right up against the goal. Who else was I suppose to kill?

    Best way to get POTG is to have multiple plays where you think "I REALLY hope that doesn't make POTG, I'll look like a chump"

    I had that happen as genji the other day on hollywood, we had the cart moving and I had snuck up to the catwalk in the middle of the cowboy area, activated my ult and jumped down, killed two people and went for their widow who hadn't noticed me but got stuck up bumping against the little edge of the walkway right at the moment the ult ended so i couldn't even shuriken her as I tried and failed to jump up two feet, then she turned and shot me in the head

    the potg was the widow killing 2 of my teammates then turning and shooting me, then shooting another teammate behind me

    PotG was a Junkrat ult that killed 3 people. I was Torb, and while yes the turret did a lot of the work at least 3 of those kills were from my own shotgun.

    junkrat tires just take out full-health heroes so often that they're that much more likely to get it, i guess

  • TheStigTheStig Registered User regular
    Junk Rat got a potg against my team where we ended up winning with a 3 tire kill on their defense. What should have been the potg was me 1 shot killing his tire as it came around the corner, saving 3 people when we were on defense, helping secure the game in the final minutes.

    I wonder if Junkrat's tire losing damage output the further it travels would help offset some of the stuff he does that feels like bullshit.

  • rhylithrhylith Registered User regular
    It can be killed and it doesn't have a huge radius. I don't think they should touch it.

    Junkrat's tire should deal more damage the greater physical distance it travels

  • DragkoniasDragkonias Registered User regular
    If they were to nerf Junkrat's ult I would just increase the cost like maybe 10 or 15 percent.

    they only thing I'd change with junkrat's ult is the charge rate

    he builds it awfully fast

    Yeah the tire is fine, it has a lot of downsides and is actually hard to use properly against competent opponents.

    It's probably a lot better on console though, but I can't comment on that.

    Hmm...on one hand I appreciate that the McCree buff makes him a Pharah counter now. Cause she did need a few more.

    On the other, I used Pharah for turret harassment so its also kind of annoying.

    On the other other hand, D.Va is also more viable for this. Zenyatta too.

    So we'll see.

    Eh, it gets blown up a lot of the time in console as well. It might be a hair more effective but a competent Reinhardt/Soldier/Hanzo blows it up easy still.

    Also. Ana's ult is scary.

    Not sure how I feel about it yet.

    It's fine. Her ult just means the enemy team focuses down the boosted player like they would with many other ults.

    Now when is reaper going to get a counter? Or like, a health nerf or some nerf to the duration of his invincibility?
    What I'm saying is reaper is bullshit.

    Only the enemy junkrat though, mine always builds super slow and then when I use it it gets shot to hell before it can kill anything no matter how I try to flank

    Reaper is bullshit(fun bullshit) but I think if he was changed tank heroes would run amuck. Why I'm kind of cautious about him.

    The Dva buff seems like it should make her very effective against him. She can always keep up with his invincibility and defense matrix can block his shots until he has to reload, with the toggle he has very few options against her.

    Also, Pharah wrecks his shit.

    Pharah's a pretty good counter. He can't really do anything to her while she rains destruction justice down upon him. Roadhog can also work if you're good at hitting headshots when you hook him.
