site update?

Recommended Posts

I don't wanna sound too lame about how much effort it takes or doesn't take.  But ya think we can update the main info page?  Overwatch just celebrated an anniversary!  DOUBLE XP

 

Speaking of OverWatch..  Imitation is the truest form of a compliment ( think Lawbreakers)

Think some of ya should reconsider your take on the game.  Now I cant really compare it all that much too team fortress, but I do understand similarities in appearance.  However, I believe OW is not only an updated (graphically) version, but adds upon the best from some other games.  Its full of counters, but rewards teamwork often enough.  Guns blazing can be a smashing success, and/or a miserable failure.  Think its like this sorta:  We may both love Westerns!  But ya didn't enjoy blazing saddles?  

Now I cant really argue some points   i.e.  Yeah, I guess its a "twitchy" game.   But I don't want ya to believe the best twitch aint gonna meet his match. The game has actual cheats for specific class's like sniper.  The shooter sees you, and the gun auto targets.  Im thinking the "twitchy" guy earns a personal bounty. 

One somewhat notable difference on this game (imho), I believe we can all agree that "Rush" games can become adulterated w/ KDR players.  While this game is more than just CTF.  It can be a moving CTF too start, but it doesn't really appear too scream "Its about ME" when pressing tab for stats.  Uh huh, Yeah even actual kills are broken down between both "elimination" or actual "Objective" kills..  Be my guest to feel great about going 20 eliminations 2 objective w/ 4 deaths   Your math might be 5.0 KDR!  My math is a loss (not on point) carrying a negative two deaths.  That may be a bit over the top, but I know for fact my KDR is based purely on my team (at times anyway)  Ive personally seen several W's w/ either 2 or maybe 4 deaths running full steam the whole game!  Ive also seen an 18 death game loss. that was just awful in so many ways.  I wind up breaking off one char (close too Ultimate?) which may eliminate the teams only healer.  I may instinctually attempt Bastion to up the raw firepower!  Determine that to be a mistake, while I predetermine the course of action too involve a plan to bring in my Rain, only to find it would mean 3 tanks on the team (clocks ticking)  Do I bring in a healer, maybe it would now be the 2nd healer which we probably needed to start?  How about my Torbjorn, who can make me a killing w/ his turret, but make some players believe I'm sorta clueless on "DPS" or some other need-to-know stuff

Technically, theres still a few chars that may be a bit too buff'd for my taste.  I call em bow n arrow guy, and rocket girl.  On a side note dontcha think its ironic that DVa announces "nerf this" before she crit kills ya at 100% health?  I swear if I don't feel targeted by DVa?  I know Junkrats wheel is for me, and whoever else is on point.  And, Yeah its true!  I dislike kdr chatter (team game) while I may harp about "objective play".  BUT, If ya have a great sense of humor?  L2P Mei  I can team up w/ a decent Mei, and have a game within a game.  She freezes em, I HS em, press heal, and its on to the next one!  Its kinda scary good

 

The best (funniest) part about facing DVa for me personally?  I try to play aggressive, possibly in hopes of raising fear lvls (should only fear God)  I started out trying to get up n close for headshots (that didn't work)  I learned that she was gonna blow up, and kill me no matter what?  I still have a natural reaction to chase a target like a dog.  So I'm pressing to move forward, while remembering I need to get outta dodge.  Now I find myself asking folks in game " Hey gee gee guys   btw  How do you stop DVa from blowing up her tank on ya"   I hear something like  "Yeah, ya need to be out of the LOS"  Bottom line?  I'm a lvl 60+ noob   However, I can usually figure out how a games gonna play out based on characters chosen. 

 

I believe its real easy to begin to think ya know it all in this game!  Ya may even want to discuss this fact w/ your teammates.  I'll just warn ya to be prepared to be humbled if you happen to be playing w/ a somewhat knowledgeable, honest person.  Ive held back efforts at times, and seen my team appear to follow suit.  Then we grab a gear as a team, and its game on until the finish FTW!  Other times, ya just don't get the breaks at the right times.  Focus your efforts too much on an awesome Reinhart?  Ya may earn the W!  But ya may just leave your team out to dry from another knowledgeable player.

 

p.s.   Don't be shocked to find other games, attempting to implement similar gameplay... In comparison to BF,, Ya wont see the need for a support to drop ammo, but ya may be glad ya got a camper behind ya that don't miss!   Basically if ya enjoy laughing, and can tolerate getting a beat down?  I think you'll enjoy the game

yeah Frost,,

Its kinda a hard lesson for me though.  Its sorta hard to explain!  Basically, I believe the game takes away from the focus of winning.  Im not saying its a bad thing!  Im not even sure its an actual goal of the programmers.   I find myself starting a round sometimes thinking  "Seriously a Bastion?"  If the names look familiar   I may be thinking  " We never stepped foot on the flag, but your gonna chase points w a mercy?"  However, I may see two, even three defense w/o a single Tank, and we walk on em so hard its not worth the effort.

I'm not saying KDR or some other stat matters unless ya visit certain sites..  Seriously though, I even made an attempt at playing "competitive games"  The first game was so good, I couldn't have asked for much more from the team.  The second game left me looking at my team fighting behind me, close to their spawn (if ya wanna call it fighting, maybe positioning is better)  It also helped me to reassess my stance on characters.  For instance, I'm thinking Lucio can be a waste of a player slot in some games.   (least from a Soldier, maybe tank perspective)

Ive already started to begin enjoying Soldier76   But, its still rough going to go up against some players   Pharah is still rough, but worse yet I think every DVa knows they can own me.
