Best Overwatch characters?
For me it's
D.VA > Junkrat > Widowmaker > Soldier: 76
im still trying to find the one i like the most so im just gonna state my faves: soldier 76, pharah, reinhardt, winston. In my team that i play with i normally go tank so thats why 2 tanks in there
fuck you! fuck you and anyone else who plays junkrat! hes too OP! so are all the supports too imo, supports are meant primarily for healing, not wiping out the whole enemy team too
Mercy, fuckers need to be kept alive
>junkrat is op
Bastion is the op one, dumbass
>the supports wipe out teams
They really don't. They do a decent amount of damage, except for mercy who can't do shit, and even they're not that good healers, except for mercy who's fucking amazing
I like Junkrat and Roadhogg a lot. I can enjoy Junkrat without using the nadelauncher, his trup and mine are funny enough. And Roadhogg has a funny hook which can make opponents sh!t pants or get you instaselfrekt. Like it.
Yet Lucio was my best overwatch character...before playing it. I hoped so much more from him and the level design.
Also 1 more vote for widowmaker ass
bastion is only OP when he is in turret mode. you know when he can't move and one sniper bullet will kill him.
Let's talk snipers. Their damage is too high, and they can follow up their shots to quickly.
first of all, bastion is not op and can stomp low elo, he can be flanked and killed in 3 hits by a reaper, second of all junkrat is op because of his easy ultimate charge up from aoe damage and can wipe a whole team with his ult not to mention c4 damage and hitting people directly...
Do you have a good gameplay video of him from the beta? Because I think his potential is highly wasted in the game. So I guess I don't play him like I should. He doesn't feel nervous to me, I get he's a healer but I wanted him to be the bug in oppenents ears too, kinda tf2 scout.
That's cause she is support. her other shit is pretty bad. gun is only good at close range, orb is slow as fuck and easy to dodge.
shields are like 30% of a bullet from the dps characters.
He does a great job at harassing because, unlike Tracer, he can constantly and has arguably better range. He's not quite as fast and has a weaker panic button, but his Ultimate is better and he's a much better team player.
He's no Tracer, but he can perform that role well enough.
He doesn't deal much damage and most of his worth comes from his aura healing. As >>683090788 says, play tracer for the scout experience. Lucio excels at getting to the objective and staying there. The speed boost makes your entire team potentially harder to hit, the healing makes them more sustainable, and his right click can be used to blow people away from the point or off ledges.
Not to sound picky, but I don't like her pistols akimbo. I tried her, didn't have the feel. And Don't like her ability neither. I do prefer Lucio which I don't like much.
Gonna wait for the next bunch of heroes releasing this year.
I believe you I just wanted to see how interesting he can be played. I like healing people, but I was mostly caught by his wallskate thingy, what do you think about it? I feel the maps aren't a big deal of a playground for him.
FUCKIN BOW GUY MOTHERFUCKER. FEEL THE DRAGON, FAGGOTS!! SKILLKILLED
I think there are people disappointed because they don't like moba shooter (or don't know moba at all). They're more arena players or ballistic guys who don't see the appeal of the moba abilities and features on an fps insight. It's far from tf2 in the end. And one can love both, some cannot.
All in all, it's not bad, just tell yourself you wanted to like it (because marketing and art had a great advert campaign), but it's not for you. And having to pass on this creative product is sad and frustrating I understand.
Yet I wouldn't say "not that good". It's a bet. Introducing arena moba shooter to casual and competitiv market is quite a challenge (even more for blizzard). It will have tons of clone coming no doubt. And they might be great.
I personnally think Overwatch has no game modes identity and they should fix it fast.
The black guy is most fun to play
just reking those fucking snippels
Wont pay that price neither cuz poorfag, but man you gotta pay that art direction someday. Paying 60 bucks for a realistic shooter these days, that's the bullshit. If not for gameplay cloning, creativity has a price tho. If you can afford fullprice, do it. If you can't wait a few months.
Reinhardt. Because someone needs to keep you little faggots safe.
Then Widowmaker, because no one ever snipes correctly and enemy snipers kill my freakin heals.
Then, fuck I dunno. Bastion. Because scrubs get murdered by his wtfbbq mode.
man i was really hyped for this game but honestly the novelty wears off rather quickly and it becomes stale
i didn't exactly love battleborn but it is pretty much the game overwatch should have been
>>skins have to be bought on a P2P game
you get loot boxes pretty fucking constantly.
And they made it so the game is kinda more addictive.
Had beta for like half a year, was ~lvl 80 and I had legendary skins on like half my guys.
thats true, but i would always pick solider over him because team sustain at objectives is much more valuable imo
also his weapon and helix rocket feels more impactful at long ranges now after mccree nerf
depends on what you're doing I'd say.
If you're attacking a point, a quick kill can be more valuable than sustained dmg.
If you're defending, then yeah, mccree isn't the best choice.
All in all I'd say they have pretty different roles.
Doesn't feel that way to me so I can't really say much about that.
Another thing that you should keep in mind is that once ranked launches, the game is going to become a lot more fun.
Beta had it, and after some time most of the scrubs fall behind and you have actually interesting games where people actually try to counter and try to combo ults and shit.
The mobility is the only problem imo, every team should be running a mercy, lucio, or zenyatta so sustain shouldn't be much of an issue
He's a god tier tank killer, a flanker, and an anti flanker that just can't deal with more than 2 enemies at the same time
First time played this open beta.
You guys have to go 6 man Premade and all go the same hero + Lucio for AoE Speedup / Heals.
It's ridiculous. Our best one yet was 5x Pharah and me as Lucio. (Lucio & Roadhog are my Mains, following Widowmaker for going defense in the Temple of Anubis for example)
>BRRRRRRRRRT in the corner
>Genji franticly windmilling a sword
>NERF THIS >:3
that shit can get countered pretty fucking easily if you're not playing against new people.
Not entirely sure what would be the best counter against many pharas, since I never had to play against that, but probably a few widows a reinheard, a roadhog, maybe a soldier, stuff like that.
Mercy Pharah Combo. That shit is OP. Combined with Reinhardt's shield, you are nearly unkillable when playing vs idiots. And thats pretty fckin common that u see retards running face first into you thinking u can kill them.
Also, Bastion, Fuck that piece of metal.
>oh dear enemy team has a Bastion
>"How should I farm him this time?"
>Should I apm raise with DEE VUH and remove him in a second?
>Should I force suicide with Genji?
>I could probably also just oneshot him with Widow.
>Nah, think I'll just hook him with Roadhog today.
I can only really play Pharah. With everyone else, things start to go to shit there's just nothing I can do by myself without relying on ultimates. This is how my matchups go:
Bastion, D.Va, Torbjorn
Junkrat, McCree, Mercy, Reaper, Reinhardt, Symmetra
Hanzo, Lucio, Pharah, Roadhog, Soldier, Tracer, Widowmaker
>Ass Pain Tier
Mei, Winston, Zarya
yes definitely, with the dmg up orb and a charged shot you can kill most players. only downside is that he has zero defense and for that reason there arent many maps you can play him on.
Sorry, that's the only good one I've seen. The rest are off-model drawings, or from the faggot Secazz who ruins every single loop with retarded facial expressions.
MORE PEOPLE NEED TO FUCKING TANK AND HEAL
this game would be ok for 20bucks
not yet, but be ready for 10 dollars skins and emotes
Ugh. Why do they have to make the female characters "cute" and "sexy"? There's nothing feminine about a skinny, boyish body and huge boobs in tight costumes. When will REAL women be represented in games? And when will this disgusting and hateful sexualization/exploitation of females stop?!
My favs to play as
-Fun to rain hell down on people
-high mobility which is fun
-airshoting feels very rewarding
-Stun is way to easy to use
-Burst headshots are beastly
-It's hiiiiiiiiiiiiiggh noon
-Very fast dude
-Very good pick character
The game's impressively well crafted. A fuckup like adding premium heroes and splitting the userbase would be unexpected given everything else we've seen from them. Just install Battle.net, click install, and play to see for yourself to see/feel what I mean.
Honestly, Mei is the best hero they'll ever have. Other than electrodindu (winston).
Why is Mei the best? Because trolling the shit out of your team mates is the best thing ever.
Me and a friend will both play Mei and just spend all game dropping ice walls. It's simply beautiful.
i've also noticed no many play that girl...
>waaaah games have microtransactions now
>boo hoo this is so horrible
Suck it up, faggot. No one's forcing you to buy them. Games have been using microtransactions for years now and more mainstream games will. Get over it.
idk she could be a good caracter besides the look? i havent tried her yet
She is a good hero in the right set up. If you need shields she's got the strongest shields but I personally find her kit to be wonky and unimpactful without ultimate. Just not for me, if I need to tank I go Roadhog or the chimp
She takes some getting used to. To be effective, you're dependent on timing counters. The more you block, the higher your damage boost gets up to about 88%. (200 damage will get you +50%) The boost drains quickly, though.
The primary fire isn't much use without the damage boost, but the secondary fire (lobbed explosive) is good for spamming at up to mid range.
The ultimate is perhaps the most obscene one in the game. It will suck an entire enemy team in to one point with no chance of escape for a very long time. Time it with the ultimates of others, or even just a Bastion and they're fucking done. Effortlessly.
Genji needs a hard core nerf 4 of us were holed up near a dug in bastion and gengji managed to rush in and kill 2 of us by reflecting bastions bullets onto us and him before using she dash to fininish everyone off.
Mfw genji is for baby's who want easy mode
got the open beta. only hero i enjoyed so far is hanzo. pudge is okay too. i guess tracer would be good if i knew maps and did some practice.
only heroes that kill me consistently are bastion, genji and pharah. obviously i've only played a few games, but they feel like the most annoying/broken heroes in the game.
Yeah, that's the only thing about her I hate. When im up against a good Zarya, I'm fuckin dead kiddo. Even tracer can't get out of the ult, unless her E is availabe. She can't shift-dash out, even with all 3. Winston can't shift jump out. And Zarya's ult activates pretty quickly after she throws it, plus her vocal queue isn't very recognizable like hanzos "KEEEABUUADABAHA" or mccrees "HIIIIIGH NOOOOON"
So yeah, she could use a tweaking. But since she's underplayed, it's not a big deal atm
Ive played for a while, only chars I think need nerfs are mcree, genji and widowmaker
Mcree needs his flashbang nerfed and his right click slightly nerfed again
Genji has way, way too much mobility. Double jump and wall climbing + a dash which resets on kill. Most likely should remove dash reset
Widowmaker has 0 risk. She has more bullets than 76 does and can fire off 10 sniper shots before reloading. Needs to have 20 shots of ammo and use 5 per sniper shot or something. Her poison mine also shouldnt give a warning if its destroyed
>complains about babies who want easy mode
>doesn't complain about the Bastion who doesn't know to lay off a deflecting Genji
Bastion needs a nerf out of anyone, the instant damage he can use to squash squishies and melt tanks.
Other than that the rest of the characters appear to be pretty balanced, it's just how people play them
I rock Hanzo, Widowmaker, and Sodier.
Also you guys want to see 15 new upcoming characters?
There are 15 pictures to check out, which hold a portrait along with their specs, which cant be viewed but these are confirmed overwatch characters in the making, from one of the animated shorts.
Eight second cooldown, two second duration. An unlimited number of projectiles hitting you from the front are deflecting towards your crosshair with the same accuracy as they came in with.
Bastion in his immobile form puts out an approximate shitfuckton of damage per second with his high accuracy, high fire rate, very large magazine Gatling gun. You can start and stop firing without wind up.
I was stuck only using my main, until I discovered what the Weekly Brawl button does. This week, every time you spawn, you get assigned a random hero that you're stuck with until you die. Since everyone else is playing characters they aren't familiar with, it's a good way to practice the others.
Don't take losing too personally. The winner is generally the first team to randomly roll a non-shitty team, or teams with players who rolled their main and go on kill streaks.
Thanks for the info, bro. Sounds like your high damage tanks should doubletap that hero, start firing, wait two mississippis, and continue.
That or your group needs a healer.
My friend and I usually team up on games like this, we either tank&heal or tank&fast usually. I'm a better tank than him and he's a better hit-and-run than me, but we switch roles pretty often.
When we spawn on opposite teams we generally avoid each other because he can't kill me and I can't catch him.
I usually come out on top if he doesn't catch me alone while he isn't.
Winston is a mobile tank, which is unusual. Most people don't get it and just run up to a Roadhog and start pissing on it with primary fire.
Next time you play him, hunt squishy targets, cause chaos, then GTFO. (also, if you weren't aware, the tesla gun has a cone area effect, potentially hitting more than one target, and it bypasses shields and barriers)
That is literally all I do on Monkey. I shift leap over the front line and start whaling on their widow or soldier or whomever is hiding back there like a bitch. Then just bubble shield and jump back out.
No healer can keep up with direct Bastion damage. Even tanks will get easily destroyed in 2 seconds.
Here are two Bastions rooted with a healer on one of them. Genji comes out of the gate, deflects (aims too low for half of it), dash slashes through both, ends up behind, and they're fucking done.
I actually enjoy playing mercy but my whole team lets the enemy waltz through them and blow me away everytime. Other than that im pretty good with hanzo but theres always edge lords and kids racing to be the bow and arrow guy so it'd over saturate the team with snipers
>thinking you're safe next to McCree
If you're within his alt fire range youre fucked
Rush him down? Get your shit stunned, then you're sucking down 12 shots. The only hard counter I've run into is genjis deflect and tracers leap if you're not quick enough
Smart McCrees only use their ult from high points or behind the enemy team
>you're actually a smart mccree player
See most people are still shit with him, guess that's why he's been such an easy target for me this beta. I also main Hanzo, so I tend to kill mccrees before they even know it happened. Still, I've seen a few good ones out there
Sad that they removed Montana during alpha stages,
Was replaced by a nigger gorilla
Should have staggered the tanks, they have overlapping fields of fire but no cover and they're rooted so they can't even turn, plus the healer had no cover after the stationary defenses were bypassed. Staggered bastions would mean the back covers the front and the healer has something to hide behind, preferably staying in the middle for dat cover fire.
Friendly fire is off, right?
Sounds like the monkey fella would be a good bastion companion.
The players weren't very skilled judging from their responses, and their setup with bullshit for a large number of reason. Healer could have bolted by turning 90 degrees right and pressing Shift.
Despite appearances, Bastion isn't a tank. He can be taken down quickly if he can't shoot at you, and he has a critical spot at his back for double damage. They can turn 360 degrees as fast as you can turn your mouse, and you can press Shift to switch to walking robot mode in less than a second to re-position.
Game needs serious rebalance.
Some characters are far too weak and others are far too strong and there's no middle ground.
Seriously, if everyone on your team uses Bastion and they know how to use him it's over, no contest. Same for the tank, his fucking shield takes too much damage before it breaks.
Someone is mad he can't handle anything except walking and shooting. Blizzard confirmed that they added those classes just to get the CoD+Battlefield players to play the game.
>How does it feel playing the pity class?
Have you tried not being a scrub?
You can't stop Reinhart with any character at mid range directly in front of him, with one exception. You can't rush a Bastion with any character directly in front of him. (not accounting for ultimates) Get your team mates to deal with them in other ways, or switch heroes.
>tfw out of your chests you get a legendary skin and a highlight intro for a champion that you hate, and so you feel obligated to play them
>mfw I know that feel
Pulled blackbeard skin for trollbjorn and I hate that little bastard
...I main Bastion you tard. No one ever kills me unless I'm pressing forward, which most of the time I still kill them. Only other characters I've tried were squishy, they die nearly instantly.
There is seriously no one that competes with a Bastion other than Rein's shield. I have gone entire games with 19k/d no deaths. Not because 'I'm good', but because he's easy mode. I literally just sit, setup shop, and blast away.
So Bastion is a light armored DPS and both of them could have turned around to continue firing?
Were they stunned or stupid?
How fast can Bastion walk? I assume he can turn faster while rooted than when walking.
With a good babysitter to cover his weaknesses this seems like a strong class, but is only medium tier solo because of the exploitable weaknesses and other character's counters, like the pink hair'd dyke with the black hole ultimate, or genji.
Everyone who wasn't genji in that video was a noob. That other guy that wanted to nerf him just needs to git gud.
I like Bastion. I can envision a speedster drawing enemies into his fire and chasing the ones that run one at a time. If friendly fire is off, just walk in between him and genji if he's too stupid to stop shooting, especially with a tank.
Who is this game's tank? Pink hair?
Seriously though, there isn't incentive to play other characters. The ice girl is slow, her ice barrier gets blasted faster than Reins mobile shield (wtf?), and by the time it recharges you've been squished. Her gun only works on enemies pressing you. It's poor for attacking.
I find Lucios best at KOH or Capture Points. Speed boist the team there. Then switch to heals and stay. Take pot shots when you can. Of youre lucky you can actually rack up a really high kill streak. His aura heal makes him a good team camper i guess.
The one legendary skin I got happened to be for my main. I don't like what it looks like but I wear it anyway.
>I main Bastion
>No one ever kills me
>only medium tier solo
Nope. He's actually the best solo in the game.
He can heal himself quickly after conflicts, and the only way someone can sneak you is if you aren't paying attention, the maps are small and have impassable choke points.
I wasn't kidding when I said I get 19k/d no deaths.
I can't understand people who use that guy
>Hey see all these interesting and unique characters?
>Yea..I wanna play call of duty though so i'll pick the stereotypical bland as fuck solider
Well, I still haven't played the game, so everything except for whats in this thread is unknown to me. Didn't know his regen or the maps.
In that case, I can see them nerfing his DPS in the future, if they don't just increase the squishies' health.
Bigger maps would work, too, I guess.
Not enough skill for the game? :^)
She's support, and not a good one.
Her ice wall is suppose to halt enemy progress and slow them down. However, any other characters that can kill enemies is going to be better at that than her weak ass wall. Explain to me how a mobile shield is miles stronger than her wall. It's not balanced dude, why are you defending it.
Okay, I'll share my Pharah anti-Bastion technique: Corner Spamming. Peek around the corner, fire a rocket directly at a Bastion's position, then duck back into cover immediately. Do it two or three more times, and even if the Bastion is right on you, he won't have completely killed you. Even if he does, the rockets are already off (if you fucked up the peeking) then it'll be a trade kill at least.
Ones the rockets are in the air, the Bastion doesn't have enough time to realize the problem and transform.
Its all the same fam. She's supposed to halt enemy progress, slow them down, and defend points.
She's not good at that compared to just have someone with raw dps or a tank. She isn't a problem for anyone.
I'll tell you what I do as a Bastion.
>Move back some
>Wait for you to pop back up or press forward and steamroller you
>let teammates rush you
>continue as if nothing happened
Only threat to a bastion is Rein and Widowmaker (depending on the map.)
>Were they stunned or stupid?
Stupid for a number of reasons, but yeah, they didn't recognize the dashing slash move and didn't know he went through/behind them in a straight line.
>How fast can Bastion walk?
About average speed, but with no way to hurry. You can turn to aim in an instant with the mouse in both forms.
>Who is this game's tank?
There are five tanks. One with a nearly unbreakable shield he can holds infront of him (anywhere he points his mouse). One with a shotgun and enemy reel combo. The mobile jumping ape. The mech driver, and yeah, the russian chick with the 2 second absorb counter shields.
