Hey all. Overwatch started it’s Open Beta.
My B.Net tag is Corry#1271 if anyone is interested.
Suitguy wrote his in discord somewhere, before a massive chat so it might be hard to find.
We’re both playing overwatch over the weekend.
Others on Discord seem to be playing it too so yeah. Hit people up there i’d say.
Discord doesn’t really work on my computer for whatever reason. I could hop on on my phone I suppose.
How is the game? I’m getting mixed reviews online.
Personally I am giving a mixed review too it’s easy to jump in to but as a gamer I always see what goes wrong and the reason behind it.
It’s a game where death timers matter. If you die all at the same time it’s no big deal. But die separate and it is.
It seems ideal play would be in a team as csgo high skill but at the same time it’s very far from it as a quick paced death match.
It gives the wrong idea and feels very repetitive and doesn’t allow for victory if skills are better.
I find it rather fun to be an angry dorf (Torbjörn) and longball snipers with my rivet gun~
I find it quite a pricetag for such a game though. I don’t know it doesn’t feel like a fullblown game worthy of a lot of money.
There’s plenty of fun factors in the game however, there’s somuch unbalance too…
I don’t think $40 is too much to ask for a polished blizzard game right out of the gate. Pretty cheap for how many hours you’re likely to get out of it, provided it’s something you enjoy.
I would have to agree that the maps may get repetitive based on what strategy works, but that’s true for a lot of games like that.
I didn’t find the game unbalanced. I really found the people who were successful were the ones who figured out positioning and gameplay tactics, when to push and when to hide. I was routinely schooled by people playing characters I thought were too underpowered to beat mine. It’s all about teamwork and strategy, given how little health everyone really has.
You get quite repetitive gameplay for it.
Their Heroes of the Storm is free to play. I´d class both games to be even, however the map pool is way different compared to overwatch. Where overwatch only allows for either capture points or push cars forward it´s the same on a lot of the maps. Same tactis apply to all maps.
CS:GO yet older, also a bit cheaper.
I must say I felt “empty” being unable to play the game after it’s beta weekend. At the same time, during the beta weekend especially the start I had moments where I felt I had nothing to play even though we had overwatch.
$40 is also a star citizen package, a game with the same options in a way (once finalized ofcourse) and a whole lot more.
Overwatch at $20 would be a no brainer for me, at $40 and the thing I keep seeing $70 (orgins bundle???) is just too much. And for whatever reason every reseller sells the Bundle at a discount and doesnt sell the bare minimum package.
I don’t know it really feels like a game that’ll grow boring quick.
Opinions differ though. I’d be more then happy to buy it a bit cheaper. I don’t think i’ll get my money’s worth out of it at $40.
