Why do you use the forums?
Well just a littl fun, in german forum they…hate but here its just a community with truly community feeling. Not like “you are bad because you main mercy otp!”

I’m Nozomi! :sparkling_heart:
I’ve been playing since August 2017.
I’m a Mercy main! :switzerland:
I main Mercy because I love to help my team and I am not the best in battle so I tend to stick with healers in all games I play. :blush:
My least favourite hero is probably Moira. I don’t dislike her as a hero, but her range is ridiculous and a lot of Moira players don’t heal often.
My favourite map is Lijiang Night Market! (But I like Lijiang Tower in general.)
My all time favourite skin is Zhuque Mercy. It’s so perfect. :flushed: :heart_eyes:
I use the forums so I can find out what other players are thinking!

Who are you?
Alyiza

How long have you played for?
Ive played since the game’s official live release, not been part of the Beta.

Who do you main?
I have most hours on D.Va, but since the continuous reworks she got I now mostly play Winston there. For the other positions i play Pharah (dps), Lucio (supp) and Mei (def) alot.

Why do you main them?
Winston - I find it fun to make the lives of snipers and Genji’s miserable and he’s alot of fun aswell. Nothing more satisfying than punching people off the map during ult.

Mei - The only defense hero I can be reliable on really.

Pharah - Like Mei, also like combining with a Rein ult or Zarya ult.

Lucio - Booping people off the map is simply too satisfying.

Who’s your least favorite hero?
Currently i dont really like facing Genji and Tracer, their mobility is pretty crazy and they are hard to catch unless you have someone like Winston or Moira.

What’s your favorite map?
I like Blizzard World alot, I think the design of it is absolutely stunning and it has great Blizzard references.

What’s your favorite skin?
I have many many favorite skins in the game, but if I really had to choose one, I would go with Mercy’s skin from this Lunar New Year.

Why do you use the forums?
I use the forums to chat up with the community and to read up on eventual posts regarding heroes from the devs. Always interested to read these and stay up to date.

How long have you played for?
I’m playing since 2016 July 16. I’m a music nerd and vinyl collector. At that time I was expanding my video game music vinyl collection and I always wanted to have the Lúcio vinyl coming with the press kit. Then at a local AnimeCon, a vendor was selling the game with the press kit added as a bonus. This was the last copy and I bought it. So, I bought the game because of the vinyl, but I was curious how the game is, and I just fell love with it, and I’m playing ever since.
Who do you main?
I’m a flexer, so I don’t really main anyone, I’ll bring what my team needs the most. :slight_smile: But I usually sort the heroes in three tiers, based on how good and confident my gameplay is with them:
Tier 1 (my so-called mains): Lúcio, Orisa, Zenyatta, Mei, Junkrat, Moira, Winston, Soldier: 76, Mercy
Tier 2 (I really like playing them but I need to polish my gamestyle with them): Doomfist, Reinhardt, Sombra, Roadhog, Torbjörn, D.Va, Bastion, Zarya, Reaper, McCree
Tier 3 (I’m not really good with them, but I try my best anyways): Ana, Genji, Hanzo, Tracer, Pharah, Widowmaker
Why do you main them?
I really like Lúcio because Jet Set Radio future is my favourite game of all time and booping enemies off the stage is the most satisfying thing ever. :smiley:
Who’s your least favorite hero?
I really don’t like the snipers.
What’s your favorite map?
Dorado, Route 66, Watchpoint: Gibraltar, Junkertown, Lijiang Tower
What’s your favorite skin?
Zarya’s Totally 80’s, Sombra’s Peppermint, Zenyatta’s Cultist, Lúcio’s Hippityhop, McCree’s American, Genji’s Sentai

    Why do you main them?

  • Eichenwalde.
    What’s your favorite skin?

    Why do you use the forums?
  • I’d like to know other people’s opinions.

I’m Kootiepatra, and I’ve played since pretty soon after launch.

I play fill, because I like variety and I like teamwork, so I’m happy to fill in the blanks on a team. If I had to pick a singular main, I’d probably go with Zenyatta or Zarya, because I like being able to evaluate the key player in a teamfight and enabling them to survive and/or wreck face, while having enough damage of my own to follow up.

My least favorite hero to play is currently Doomfist, partly because I’m always more comfortable with range than melee in any game, and partly because I don’t have a handle on his combos AT ALL.

I’m not sure I have a favorite map, but I am among the few who actually kinda dig Anubis.

My favorite skin is a three-way-tie between Socks-n-Sandals:76, Nutcracker Zenyatta, and Baywatch McCree. There are many skins that I find breathtaking, but those three made me laugh.

I use the forums to try and stay abreast of announcements and upcoming balance changes, and to weigh in on elements where the devs express interest in receiving feedback.

Valkyrie
Why do you use the forums?
I’m actually brand new to the forums! I’m hoping to meet new people and have fun talking about one of my favourite games :blush:

I’m Str1kernaut, and i’m a ITIS (technician school) student, but gaming, PCs and playing guitar are my hobby.
If i’m right i played ~70-80 hours in total
I main Mei, but i also started to main Pharah.
I main Mei because when i’ve got the game i said “Damn, why she has a low pick rate and she’s called satan?”; playing her i discovered she’s not satan at all and she has an unique playstyle. Another reason is because a lot of players wondered about her shapes, but the artbook and the short showed us she’s pretty normal (thicc) and she wears only a bulky jacket.
I main Pharah because i liked a lot her Quake 3 Arena playstyle, also i’m using her to climb in competitive, but i would like to use in competitive Mei more often.
Least favourite heroes? The junkers, i absolutely hate them, especially Junkrat because i get killed very often and i can’t see from where the bombs came, i hate Roadhog instead because i get hooked often in cryofreeze (damn favor the shooter bug, Blizzard fix this PLS), also i don’t like their aesthetics
Favourite maps? Probably Watchpoin Gibraltar, Volskaya Industries, Lijiang Tower, Ilios and Ecopoint Antarctica
Favourite skin? Ecopoint Mei, Firefighter, Beekeper (very nice skins, i wait only a Pol-ice, Mei-litary or a Ping Pong skin for Mei), Arctic Zarya (dat awesome soviet taste) and Night Ops 76
I use the forums to talk with other players, offer them tech support, ask things and tips for comps and some heroes, and to get devs aware of Mei’s bugs and power creep

Orisa (although I want to play bastion)

Ana and hanzo (both equally make me want to smash my screen)

Kings row (Every hero is actually usable in at least some parts of the map)

Bastions blizzcon 2016 (too bad ill never get it or be able to play my favourite hero)

Complain about scatter arrow or how a three stack can throw from top 500 to 700 sr and not recieve any punishment

Hello,

My name is Harbinger, formerly known as Negamega or Nega for short. I still prefer being called Nega even though I changed my name for obvious reasons.

I played the game since preorder open beta.

I main all the shield tanks.

reason for playing them

I do it because I used to had a computer that was not meant for gaming when I first played when I first started playing. It was giving me <= 30fps in game, in other words I couldn’t aim efficiently. A hammer and a feather duster were easy to use so I chose them. Then the Beetlebot came along and I was like “A shield tank, with a minigun that can has a self nano boost? POGGERS”.

Least Favorite hero will be mercy, after a while I just got tired of her. :neutral_face:

My Favorite map is King’s Row. It’s one of the few places I can play Technoknight efficiently since orisa took his spot on a lot of maps.

My favorite skin is Mayhem Moira. Look at the skin and you will know why

I do not really use the forums, I usually go here and see the world slowly burn, and the patch notes. :eyes: :popcorn:

Zarya
Why do you main them?
Her shield mechanic is very fun.

Hanzo. Any kills on hanzo falls into 2 camps: you’re feeding into him, or it was all RNG.

Why do you use the forums?
To see what other Overwatch players think of the game and to keep up with anything I may have missed during the day.

I’m Faalund and 16 year old.

I started the same day sombra came out.

Roadhog I just love the way he feels also I love pigs they are so cute so it was a match made in heaven for me also I love doomfist and Torbjorn those two are my second and third main

That has to be either dva or genji I am not a fan of how they are designed well also who though giving genji a deflect hitbox the size of a tank was a good idea?

It got to be king’s row I am a big fan of how it seems to have something for every hero.

All Roadhog skins.

Just to read about what people think
