    I'm assuming they mean while in ball form. I imagine for most people it's just such a fundamental habit they still do it even when they know it doesn't really help.

    Man it feels so good carrying with Junkrat, I don't normally get to play dps but plonking people with the clown skin when I do is great.

    When I'm on Ham and out of ball form my movement thumbstick is for two things and two things only: tracking-by-strafing, and moving forward so I can hit you with my gun-hand.

    Aiming is for suckers and bipeds

    I wonder if that means the health packs are all hidden outside the playable area in the event and they just forgot to move that one for the non-event version.

    Hmm...new Doomfist actually feels a lot better to me.

    Sure his Ult sucks rn but it feels there is more wiggle room between Doomfist God and Feeder.

    17:25 forward with dueling Doomfists with alternating perspectives is really fun. Really crazy stuff.

    As a Zen main I'm pretty tired of Doomfist in general, it's honestly one of the most (if not the most) lopsided matchups in the game

    Ideally Zen should never be in a 1v1 with Doomfist because he is with his team which aren’t dumb and focus down the obvious man with the enormous hand

    The main problem with it is that there are plenty of contexts that require a Zen to be distanced away from his team, and Doomfist's burst damage is about as instant as a Roadhog hook combo. Faster than Genji, Tracer, Winston, DVa, all those dive characters that I can survive against for long enough even if I'm sitting with the other healer. I can't do that with Doomfist because his damage potential means that if I'm following normal doctrine and I'm hugging the corners and walls and shadowing the main healer, I'm still going to get smacked against the walls and get bursted down.

    Literally the only thing that can hypothetically save me from all this guaranteed damage is a Zarya bubble, and I'm not going to start asking Zarya to constantly sit at the back or turn around every single time in the middle of a fight

    It just feels shit

    Also, this requires an incredible amount of faith in the most nebulous and uncertain element in the entire game (the team)

    I need to watch some videos of some dominant doomfists. I blow my cooldowns too quickly and get burned.

    I would make heavy use of a "oh...hehe, hello." voice line. For that moment when i know i'm boned, and they know i'm boned, and it's all over but the shooting.

    Good peel would obviously help you survive but I think it's really important to remember that the game is not balanced so that you can play one hero into any situation. I would encourage you to add another support to your arsenal that you can fall back on if Doomfist gives you trouble on Zen. Really, any other healer is a good option, they all have options to escape or displace Doomfist that Zen lacks.

    Won a comp game this afternoon after an enemy with a diamond border said that he might have to leave this game because his girlfriend might have called the cops on him, and then 5 minutes later he did leave. I don't know what to make of that really

    I have no problems with other hard counter solutions to Zen that are absolutely capable of deleting him off the face of the earth. Hell I have no problems with Sombra, a hero made for the express purpose of deleting large-hitbox squishes, who has an ultimate capable of wiping his health to near-zero with almost no effort at all. I've easily made my peace with it.
    My main beef with Doomfist is that as a body projectile he does the same instant deletion burst damage of a sniper except his moveset utterly disrespects the traditional rules of cover/barriers. Imagine, if you will, that Winston landed 100-150 damage each time he jumped in and landed on a back line hero and had the opportunity to instantly do another 100 as a follow-up point blank.

    Like yes, really the solution to the problem in a game that encourages hero switching on the fly is to switch heroes, but my point is that it the regular TTK by a solo hard counter was never this consistently lopsided in the past as it is these days, barring things like Widow vs. Pharah and it feels garbo

    Every winston has imagined doing 150 damage when landing and they leave offerings at a dark altar that it may one day come to pass

    Doomfist doesn't respect "traditional rules of cover/barriers", but he has his own. If you know them, you can position just as safely as if you were facing a Widow. Winston is a great example: you don't take cover from Winston behind a car: you stay inside a room with a low-hanging roof because the arc of his jump prevents him from jumping inside. You stay inside a doorframe. You occupy high ground and drop low ground to dodge his burst. Etcetera.

    Doomfist has rules like that.

    I've actually 'counterpicked' a rampant Doomfist with Zen and won simply because I knew Doomfist's rules better than that Doomfist.

    Well he is still plagued by a bunch of really terrible bugs and his ult is useless rn.

    But it is a lot easier to stay in the fight instead of just hopping in and quickly hopping out.

    So, hmm if not better I just like the direction he is going in even if it still needs a bit of work.

    Shower thought: I haven't heard anyone get bitched out for their hero pick in at least a fortnight. And in that time hero suggestions have tended to be constructive and based on the developing situation, not knee-jerk non-meta hate. And players have even taken the advice well!

    Is this the real world? Is this just fantasy?

    This makes me weary and it feels more like a way to increase length before real patches and updates and also just excuse the existing flaws in things (like how he mentions Mystery Heroes, good luck having no stacks be officially implemented now). If they added this mode while also bringing out a stronger punishment system for the assholes who leave games, combat to smurfs or fixes to competitive, then I wouldn't be as skeptical.

    I've never done the mod stuff on any game, I know there's an audience for it, but it always feels like something you do at the end of the lifecycle. And maybe that's the intent as they want to push Overwatch 2, I don't know.

    I'd play a MOBA styled game with a 1st-or-3rd person view and OW characters. The things that put me off the genre are the terribly zoomed-out view and all of the clicking.
