#4586853 So who's playing this Overwatch crap

Posted Distorpia on 09 June 2016 - 01:47 AM

As someone who's had access since the first beta wave (almost a year now) I will explain the flaws in design with this game ( as I've played it for quite a while ).

At first it seems fun when you're still trying out the champs etc then you meet the premades or ( in the case of new players now ) beta players, who really know what to pick on each map and every situation, that totally destroys any opposition, but I guess they did spend quite some time getting better at it.

Then you reach the point where you get your own group and play vs premades, that's where it gets fun until you play a couple of dozen games and realize the game is incredibly linear, lacks depth and is tailored for casuals.

The closest definition I can give you is that it's very similar to heroes of the storm in terms of shallow / linear gameplay.

Anyone comparing CSGO and Overwatch are fucking idiots...

I've played my fair share of counterstrike - won some championships ... played on some great teams  - these two games have about 2 things in common - they are FPS and they are team based .... after that - the whole fucking genre is different...

in counterstrike you didnt have someone throwing hooks at you from 10 ft away or a person shooting rockets at you from 20 ft in the air ...

no you had whats infront of you ... Overwatch is an amazing game - i like TF2 ... Overwatch is just better... you have to react so much quicker - you are forced to switch into a comp that benefits your team before its over...

people need to understand every single character in OVERWATCH to really play the game well.. sure you may think your comp is correct but now you're getting shafted by a Pharah and you're not sure why... OH ... nobody is playing something that counters Pharah.. but you've been playing games where that one moron would rather sit there and play Genji after watching Dragons before hes ready to switch...

This game is amazing on every single plateau .. dont knock it till you try it.

is it that bad? what are the complaints about it
'that bad'

the game is extremely well received

don't rely on opinions just from aj

20 tick servers, AI turrets and a Q that wipes the entire team when you shoot it at a wall. Yeah, my opinion is far from the truth.
people complain about rate just to complain about something

read more on the subject. apparently the netcode is way different compared to source engine, and within their model 20.8hz 'works'. you can also set it to 60 on custom games, which makes this whole debate entirely pointless since anyone playing it competitively will just play scrims and private games 24/7 anyway. who knows, maybe they will even make it default later

for what it's worth, my personal opinion and experience: i've played quake3 for over 15 years now, and i play whats literally the 'fastest' variation of it (promode/cpma, makes it more like quake world with air control and instant weapon switching, etc), and so far i've only had ONE "bullshit" moment in overwatch that i'd blame on tick rate. i'm 26 hours in and fuck knows how many in open beta (binged it hard so there was a lot)

whoever complains about it as if its something that makes the game unplayable or bad is either a lot faster than me or is just shitposting

i'm pretty fucking fast, so i'd say its the latter

i'm on 50 ping though so maybe it's more noticeable with very low pings, i don't know. people complaining about netcode with >80ms can fuck right off

hanzo's ult is easy as fuck to avoid no matter where it's casted from (the announce for that shit is definitely the loudest and most recognizable). it's only used as a follow up on top of other cc or on a locked/committed team, but then you're not exactly "Q'ing a wall and wiping the entire enemy team" are you. its wall passing feature is only there to guarantee you being able to do that, cuz the shit is slow as fuck. it'd be incredibly frustrating to use if it had collision

i'm not a fan of turrets honestly but there's plenty of counterplay so i don't see them as a problem. them being 'irritating' is kind of the whole point, so just deal with it (the better games you play the less of that shit you see anyway, because it's easy as fuck to counterplay the more organized ppl are about it)

my guess is you know nothing about how the assist works so you comment is shit talk

Why?  You come to AJ with a question and get upset when someone responds to your retarded thread?  You're part of the cancer that has made this game shit, along with the past 3 expansions.

#4578117 On vanilla PvP

Posted Lolflay on 22 April 2016 - 02:09 PM

Don't group me with people who generally hate on vanilla advocates, I literally don't give two fucks. I've played vanilla from the start of the game 'till TBC release, it was insanely fun, but I'd never do it again, the memories of people and things are way too unique to tarnish by playing on a private realm. But that's me, if you want to play Vanilla, play it.

But the thing is that Vanilla diehards will never get their way in any official capacity, so doing dumb shit like collecting signatures is honestly so fucking laughable. And linking vanilla PvP videos and describing them as "skill" is also hilarious. Yeah vanilla had that spectrum of the game where you could use extra trinkets/equipment/consumables to make PvP more interesting ( I still have vivid memories after all these years of the hate I had due to having to wait a few seconds after rogues popped shadow reflector to coil them ), but it didn't have nearly enough depth as TBC/Wrath duels/arenas had. It was fun to shit on kids while I had top tier PvE gear, but don't act like the PvP was way more fun than it was in TBC/Wrath, because it simply wasn't.

All in all, if you want to play Vanilla, fine, however stop posting shit about it for fucks sake. Shutting down Nostalrious is the worst WoW-related thing in a while, not because I view it as a loss for ( any ) community, but because ever since Nostalrious shut down, people have been raving 24/7 about Blizzard - justified, you might think? No, the people who have NEVER played on Nostalrious and never cared about the realm are suddenly upset on Blizzard and are whining 24/7, signing stupid petitions to make official vanilla realms, etc etc.

Like shut the fuck up already, I'd rather read Ashley's daily updates on the non-existing WoW PvP scene than read more shit about Vanilla or how Blizzard sucks. Yeah, Blizzard blows moose wang, nobody is disagreeing here, move the fuck on.
