    Does it? I strafe aimed with the scout in TF2 and liked it. When I'm playing fast characters in other games I have to actively remember to not strafe aim, even.

    Tf2 doesn’t have limited aim speed or wasd aiming so I am confused.

    I have a secret guys...

    "Strafe aiming" or "Move aiming" or whatever is the only way I can even play shooters on a console controller.

    I just never really got comfortable with using the right hand stick for much more than minor camera adjustments. It feels kind of like trying to write with my left hand; I can kind of do it, but it is awkward and bad.

    The only way it really works is to have one aspirational crosshair that you control directly and then your real crosshair which tries to reach it at whatever the fixed turn rate is. Games with vehicles like War Thunder or World of Warships or Mechwarrior Online do it like this. It only really feels okay when you're piloting a vehicle.

    The other alternative is to have Ridiculous Crosshair Bloom, so you can turn as fast as you like but fuck you if you want to shoot anything. Which people hate.

    I can sometimes pull crazy tracking where I'll like shoot someone out of the sky as they leap over me or something, but I definitely use strafe aiming. A huge one for me is to be aiming in the general direction of where I want to shoot before I blink. Like I'll look 90 degrees away from my target kinda', blink sideways so I'm suddenly right beside them and aiming at them - make whatever minor adjustments are necessary - shoot/pulse bomb and blink away.

    Also I got nothin' in my free box. Bought 24 'cause why not. Got Rein, Zen, Torb, Reaper, Brig, Orisa and a legendary... gold drop. Booo. Bought Tracer. Won 3 MH games, opened 2 more boxes - nothin'.

    Like I said, if the goal is to enable flankers vs Bastion, it'd feel better if Bastion's sentry mode had a fixed turn arc and it was on the player to position well or incur a delay to be able to face against enemies who outflanked them.

    I think i have the perfect "fix" for bastion. Keep the damage/spread whatever but make his turret turn speed about 20% of what it is now (really slow). This gives an opportunity for flanking and more coordinated attacks.

    Reaper...yeesh.

    People would just jack their Bastion-specific sensitivity by 20%. There'd hafta be a hard speed lock and it would absolutely destroy the character.

    uh huh, uh huh, huh, yeah. So can we get that in by Tuesday?
    Actually I don't hate Bastion TOO much. I have had enough of them die on my own team with me trying hard to keep them alive that I realize that they're actually pretty fragile.

    Don't make me upload clips of a Tracer dancing around a Bastion owning it. Bastion's weaknesses still render him very, very circumstantially weak and very, very circumstantially strong. A Bastion without a shield in front of him for 2 seconds is dead to a competent team, and a Bastion without immediate peel is lunch for any flanker unless their aim is god-tier.

    The other thing about Bastion is... it is hella fun to get a nice team-wrecking 4K all on your lonesome, just with a well-placed Sentry mode. It feels amazeballs.

    Okay how 'bout this - when in Sentry mode, Bastion can only aim in a 90 degree cone... no that's ridiculous. In a 180 spread directly pointing where its crosshair was pointing when they transformed. W and S do nothing as you can still snap your aim directly vertical, but A and D or left and right on the left analog stick allow Bastion to rotate that spread, requiring a full second to turn 180 degrees.

    This would literally allow any flanker to destroy Bastion simply by mirroring their movement and circle-strafing tightly. But if you're lookin' to make Bastion more vulnerable to flankers, consider this.

    Bastion has 200HP + 100 Armor. Ironclad reduces damage by 20% and with this patch armor removes 3 damage per shot max. Ironclad reduces incoming damage before the armor reduction goes into effect, so as a Tracer main, this is what interests me...

    6 damage per pellet = 12 with crit -2.4 or 20% for Ironclad = 9.6 damage per shot. 9.6 minus 3 for armor = 6.6 damage per shot. It will thus take 16 Pulse Pistol bullets (6.6 x 16 = 105.6) to remove Bastion's armor, leaving Tracer with 24 bullets in her clip. If those 24 bullets all crit, they will deal an additional (12-2.4 =) 9.6. 9.6 x 24 = 230.4 damage.

    Thus, with a single clip of perfect crit shots, Tracer can now one-clip a Sentry mode Bastion.

    (Chance, you mean she couldn't before?)

    No she couldn't.

    I know the patch is seen as a Bastion/Ham/Soldier buff, but it's only strengthened Bastion circumstantially. It's also made him yet more circumstantially vulnerable.

    and it's fine! they pretty much fixed all the problems the mode had by actually making a map from the ground up that was designed to be a ctf map, by making flag pickups instant and not letting flag carriers use mobility abilities, implementing sudden death, etc etc

    Hahaha, it works for some games, mostly games where you are like, controlling a tank turret when someone else drives. But it’s very edge case.

    The desired reticle position vs current reticle position mechanic is probably better, as mentioned above.

    Well, yeah, I'm not saying it's a change that should be made. I was just saying that it seemed like a less frustrating way to impede a Bastion's ability to respond to someone sneaking up on it, rather than artificially lowering the turn rate relative to mouse input. MWO & vehicle-sim pointer to crosshair lag works fine for those kinds of games, but would feel very out of place in Overwatch, I think.

    Thoughts on New Patch
    1)
    In the Silver and Gold area playing as Reaper is just... unfair
    I think I only had 1 death the entire night that wasn't from at least three people trying to take me out.


    2) poor tanks. poor poor tanks. i am so sorry

    Bless your heart.
  • CruorCruor Registered User regular
    I've been on a pretty extended hiatus from this game. I'm usually a tank main, not by choice, but because nobody else wants to do it. This patch has pretty much guaranteed I'll stay away from the game for a bit longer.

    I guess thanks for the progress on my backlog, Blizz!

  • MusicoolMusicool Registered User regular
    Y'know, after just one night so far, Reaper doesn't even feel that different in Plat. Like my friend said after trying him out for a while: "he's a bit better at what he was already good at, and he's just as bad where he was already bad."

    But then, this is the first day and he was probably being taken for a spin by players without much Reaper experience. And I didn't see a lot of Reaper-pocketing either.

    Thoughts on New Patch
    1)
    In the Silver and Gold area playing as Reaper is just... unfair
    I think I only had 1 death the entire night that wasn't from at least three people trying to take me out.


    2) poor tanks. poor poor tanks. i am so sorry

    I'm kinda' thankful that at my SR we at least know how to deal with that bullshit. I haven't played much since patch, but I've barely seen a Reaper so far.

    Yup.

    Yup. I've met some Reaper mains who were absolutely ridonkulous with him long before this patch, and must be absolute nightmares now - but those players are few and far between.

    I've said this before, but I'll say it again for any Goldies and below who want some free SR in this brand new Reaper Paradise: I rose a tremendous amount when I just began to expect maximum greed flanks and ults from the enemy dps. This is particularly potent against Reapers and McCrees: heroes who should be on the front lines most of the time and who take quite a while to complete a flank - and then potentially get nothing for it.

    Don't play on automatic: expect maximum (stupid) greed, and have a plan for it.

    I mean, any map that isn't close range, you just kinda pick Pharah and walk all over Reaper, or try and get a hack with him on Sombra, but yeah, the co-ordinated teams are already running Lucio/Rein/Reaper for maximum troll potential.

    preface: quick play so i know, i know.
    It shouldn't but i'm still surprised when playing as any character with great mobility (hamball) i can get both enemy healers and a tank to FOLLOW me half way across the map and the rest of my team still cannot take the point.

    At this point in silver comp 1) almost every team has a reaper, and 2) You must focus reaper as number one priority, even over healers and tanks, if you want to win.

    I'm not sure if this change will make Reaper more viable in >= plat, but I think the unintended consequences in <= silver is going to need to be addressed. It is kind of absurd, he is by far the most powerful hero right now in my world.

    If only I was in the least bit competent at him.

    quick tips

    when u log into the match and select him type "death walk's amon u...." in all chat to let them know (intimidation)

    step 2 when u use shadow step write "nothing personnel... kid"

    with these two techniques u will be an UNSTOPPABLE force
