I don’t really talk much here but I do like browsing on and off out of boredom and have to say this place really haven’t changed much, just became quieter which is understandable, a lot of people come and go, rage, salt, joy or all of them combined which is kinda chaotic not gonna lie.
The last year announcement was certainly a demotivater for me, which is ironic because I play TF2, this should be a common feeling to just shrug it off because well ***duh*** but honestly HotS just doesn’t feel like a game I would have expected to reach this state at all.
I miss the last years, to watch an entire live stream that is literally on auto play of random replays from bronze to GM (if you are the twitch owner pls revive it I’m begging), or trolling everyone here with a big blown patch to put people in pain and sorrow (see 2020, 2021) .
I’ve been rather busy and somewhat demotivated to make content for this game, even if it’s a funny post or a full essay guide over the hero I’m literally having a brain rot over them (hogger, tyrande), I still unironically still have the draft for Tyrande on my PC but its in an incomplete state, also lost my TL3 because of inactivity so i cannot continue it anymore which is a big off.
The last couple of weeks I was just kinda in the mood to open HotS again, played some SL on my smurf, brain rotting all over hogger as always and causing the usual copium of why you shouldn’t be in a tight room or the fact you forgot to ban him on Infernal Shrine (actual platinum lobbies lmao).
This game is really something, I have a huge memory train of a lot of amazing content from the community, from guides to literally comedy gold introductions that made me play heroes, content creators that are scattered around that people never heard of (that is not pallytime he’s cool but he’s like the face of hots on YT or something, if he still is).
I loved going weekly over carbot’s channel and get the next episode for this game, it really sucks that it was the worst performing one despite having a lot of cool stuff just being mixed together, or waiting 2 weeks exactly on time and date to literally get patch notes EXACTLY on the specific on 2 weeks or 3 weeks, with no less than delays, those were really something.
I know a lot of newer players will never see this experience like this despite the community being small in its way.
Anyways, i’ve been playing overwatch 2 i mean 1.1, i mean the prequel to overwatch in features… uh whatever people call it these days, game still kinda the same, here’s some of dumb highlights:
Sorry for the big ramble, I just felt like making a thread and see how people are doing, I kinda talked a little on and off in the off topic mega thread but still my point stands, I kinda really went inactive.
I’m still playing hots, had a lot of fun on Tracer today, soooo I’ll see you in the nexus! (EU region, +2 GMT time around 4 PM~ usually).
And remember, nerf chen.
