♡ Introduce Yourself! ♡

Hey folks!

Who are you?

I am Elyodin, 34 years old and a student atm.

How long have you played for?

I played Super Mario Land on the Game Boy when I was 5 and was instantly hooked. That makes 29 years, wow. I play Overwatch since the open beta. Damn you Blizzard I didn’t even plan to buy the game at that point.

Who do you main?

Lucio. Although I love Mei but I always feel bad when playing her because it is so hard to make her useful.

Why do you main them?

Flying across the map is just amazing. I get carried away far too much.

Who’s your least favorite hero?

Bastion obviously :smiley: Sitting around just isn’t my thing.

What’s your favorite map?

Kings row. Don’t even know why exactly but I get excited whenever it loads up.

What’s your favorite skin?

Uhhh, thats a tough one. I’ll go with Pharahs Asp-Skin. It just works so well lorewise and is aesthetically pleasing all around.

Why do you use the forums?

It is actually rare for me to like something so much to be vocal about it. I really hope that Overwatch can be improved even more and like to share ideas to make that happen.

-Why do you use the forums?
lurking, info and conversation

  • Nephillus, 36 Train Driver from Australia
  • Maybe 6 months or so.
  • I don’t really main anyone, I play what I like at the time, until i get bored of them. Thats been Junker, Hanzo, Bastion, Moira , Orisa and most recently I’ve gotten the hang of Doomfist
  • see above answer
  • Gengi, mostly because I think his constant jumping around play style is a dumb necessity to play a game (having to spam jump at all seems poor design to me) might as well just have him perma bounce so players don’t have to spam space.
  • Temple of anubis is pretty fun, though it depends on who I am playing at the time
  • So many, Genji’s new skin is absolutly amazing even if its kinda not quite right for the ninja persona ( more a samurai armor IMO ), Ana’s Owl is pretty good too, but my favorite is Beachrat coz im an Aussie and its really perfectly done Although some of his vice lines could use some refining, the Raw Prawn I have never in my entire 36 years heard… ( Give the designer a raise )
  • to see how people feel about certain characters. Occasionally to help if I spot something I know enough about to make a valid addition.

Nice to see fellow QA around. REPRESENT!

Hi, I’m Martinho. A 24 year old Portuguese Console Gaymer.

How long have you played for?
Since the first open beta, and bought my PS4 to play on day one.

Who do you main?
Tracer. And Zen, Zarya, Lucio and Symmetra.

Why do you main them?
Because I’m a Support main, and Tracer is amazing to get the enemy team healers killed = easier to rank up.

Who’s your least favorite hero?
Hanzo and Widow.

What’s your favorite map?
Eichenwald and Oasis

What’s your favorite skin?
Sanzang (Zenyatta) and Grafitti (Tracer)

Who are you?
Hi! I’m Lithy, almost 30 years old Blizzard’s games user. Spanish.

How long have you played for?
I can’t remember it well, but Ana still didn’t exist. Is that a good hint? xD

Who do you main?
I’m an flex ex Mercy main. I played Widow, Junkrat, Reinhardt and Soldier too.

Why do you main them?
I wanted to flex, so I needed to play at least one character of each role. That said, I mained Widow because I wanted to challenge myself with my aim (still I’m not so good). I mained Soldier and Junkrat because they are very easy to play for me and I can relax a bit, specially with Junkrat. Reinhardt fits very well with my point of view of what a tank is, despite I need to git gud with him. Finally, I love Mercy because she is different, she is a pure support, and I needed to think all the time, moving around quickly, being a hero sometimes and if wanted, using my pistol for improving my aim and I didn’t need to hide ever. This was before the rework.

Who’s your least favorite hero?
Genji, but Tracer is near. They both are really annoying for me.

What’s your favorite map?
Honestly, I don’t have one, but Chateau Gillard’s music is so beautiful…

What’s your favorite skin?
I fell in love of the Witch Mercy as soon as I saw her.

Why do you use the forums?
I don’t use to come here if I’m enjoying the game, but after the Mercy rework I stopped enjoying her and the whole game as well. As I feel this is a better place to express myself than the Spanish forum, I use this one, hoping to see someday a fixed Mercy who I can call Mercy again, regardless if that means a rework or a revert.

Who are you?
I am ShogunTaira, or otherwise known as just Shogun. My specialty is in strategic warfare and grand strategy; you need a team strategy with movements and everything? I’m your feudal monarch.

How long have you played for?
I picked up Overwatch right around when the first summer games went live. Been practicing to go semi-pro to pro ever since.

Who do you main?
My shiny, bald-headed boy Zenyatta.

Why do you main them?
He’s the perfect blend between dealing damage to the enemy and supporting teammates. I like to spread my wings and maximize my productivity to the team when I play with others, and Zen is the picture perfect hero to do that.

Who’s your least favorite hero?
Tracer. Her handling is still extremely wonky to me; controlling her blinks, timing recalls, and landing pulse bombs are all whiffs no matter the occasion.

What’s your favorite map?
King’s Row.

What’s your favorite skin?
Oh, baby. Cultist Zenyatta by a continental mile.

Why do you use the forums?
Because I’m now starting to like the interaction capabilities that the forum update has given. I wholeheartedly endorse debates rather than silly “less-than-two sentences” responses and a flurry of red thumbs down.

Who are you?

I am Tsaku007 (pronounced like Zakku), I am 24 years old and a student from Germany.

How long have you played for?

I play Overwatch since the second week of release I think. I started playing on PS4 and moved over to PC after just a few months. To be honest I didn’t even know about Overwatch at all until I just saw it on a twitch channel in beta. After that I really wanted to play the game so I decided to get it for PS4 (mostly console player here) but after a while I realized that console is not as good as PC for Overwatch due to a lot of streams I was watching (console feels waaay slower).

Who do you main?

I am mostly a Tank main but basically you could say I am a flex player. Whatever is missing I play.
On PS4 I started off with playing Genji mostly. When I switched to PC I started playing Tanks more often, especially Reinhardt. But now I play basically every tank and everything in general.
I still really like to play Genji and another passion of me is to play Mei.

Why do you main them?

I think I am more of a flex player because I want to support my team as good as possible this way. I don’t want to force someone into a role they are bad at just because of a meta or because I just want to play a certain role. Mostly I am still able to play Tank.
Why I did start playing Tank was because of a friend of mine who played with me and helped me getting used to PC controls a bit so he recommended Tank and I started to like it.

Who’s your least favorite hero?

My least favorite hero by far is Junkrat. I disliked him on PS4, I disliked him on PC. When there was an enemy Junkrat I got angry, when there was a Junkrat on my team I got angry as well. I don’t know why but I just can’t stand Junkrat at all. No matter which team, no matter how good or bad, I just don’t like him.

What’s your favorite map?

I’d say my favorite map is King’s Row. I really like the buildings in the map and the mix of it from the start to the end. Other than that I really like Eichenwalde and Hanamura.

What’s your favorite skin?

That’s a pretty hard question, there are a lot of skins from different heroes I really like so it might take too long to name my favorite of every hero. So I just name one of the more “classic” skins I really like which is Carbon Fiber D.Va

Why do you use the forums?

I use the forums to be up-to-date with announcements, and just because I like to read more about the game. Discussing about it and so on. The reason why I am on the US forums instead of EU is simply because I prefer one language rather than 10+, I prefer to write and read in english and I think in the US forums it is more lively while being closer to devs and their updates

I am by no means a “Dps One Trick” But, I like to make the important plays…
Get the crucial Long Range Picks and the like… Or Just try to Melt Tanks.

Who’s your least Favorite Hero?

Genji, by far. I do not always Dislike the players themselves, But the Damage output is far too high compared to the Effort put into it… Just my personal Opinion tho… Also, Deflect… Uhg… -.-

What’s your favorite map?

Hmm… this is a hard one… If i had to pick, it would be somewhere between King’s Row, And Oasis for me… I just like how they are designed.

What’s your favorite Skin?

I can’t simply Pick a Favorite, But… If i Had to, It would be DuneBuggy Bastion. ^.^
During the Last day of the event That it is tied to, i got it in a lootbox at the Last Possible Second, As i was grinding for them all day, and Finally got it before getting some sleep. It was all i cared about in game, And i Finally had some fun playing After that… X3

Why do you use the Forums?

I mostly use the forums to discuss Changes/Buffs and such… as one should, But mainly Because I Don’t know anyone i can talk to about this stuff in real life, so i come here. :3 And to talk to the Super Nice Tank Mains!

Wow i over explain things… I’m So Sorry. ;-; Idk if anybody will even read this…

I’m a 30 year old gamer from Finland. Study and work at the same time… not nearly enough free time to play this game 24/7 :expressionless:

How long have you played for?

Since 6th of May 2016, to be exact, started in beta before that time though, that’s when I bought the game. I still actually have a video of me playing Overwatch for the first times ever. Quite hilarious to watch as I had no idea what I was doing! :smiley:

Who do you main?

Widowmaker, over 500 hours of playtime on her combined with my alt account, but I’m good with a lot of other characters too, this is something the opposing team doesn’t always guess.

Why do you main them?

I like snipers, but I’m generally really good with tracking and hitscan heroes.

Who’s your least favorite hero?

Probably Zenyatta, I don’t like the playstyle at all.

What’s your favorite map?

Route 66/Kings Row on attack.

What’s your favorite skin?

Probably the new Widowmaker Black Lily skin I don’t have yet… no luck on boxes :c

To check others opinions and make mine over different topics.

  • Who are you?

Robin from Sweden also known as Birdperson. 30 years old and has been playing games and even Blizzard games since the 90s

  • How long have you played for?

Overwatch, since release date, was always looking for a Beta invite, but never happened. Other games, since I was 4 years old, so 1992 :slight_smile:

  • Who do you main?

I don’t believe in “maining”. I think adapting to the team comp is prio in this game. That said, I can play everything from all tanks/supports to McCree/Pharrah.

  • Why do you main them?

Filling a role is sometimes more important to win than to get stuck on one hero. I think the game is way more fun when you adapt as well.

  • Who’s your least favorite hero?

I feel like Lucio is not that fun to play. It feels like you just try to survive and move around your teammates, not actually killing stuff or saving someone “Critical”.

  • What’s your favorite map?

Blizzard World, love the artwork.

  • What’s your favorite skin?

There are many, but Graffiti Tracer is pretty cool.

  • Why do you use the forums?

To read news, say my opinion and read others. I mainly use it to take in information about the game and listen to other peoples opinion. I feel like this is something that people are generally bad at, “seeing a problem from all perspectives”. My point of view is always in the middle, and if it’s not I have to work on myself. I rarely think that one view is the “right view”, but considering everyone is the way you should change the game. The struggle here is always not to develop the game into “jack of all trades” where you can’t identify heroes and all heroes feel like the same one. I think this happened in WoW and it (atleast for me) killed that game.

Hi, I’m an Ultaholic. Ultaholicism is no laughing matter. It’s a serious problem that affects millions of Overwatch players every year. If you know someone with Ultaholicism or are an Ultaholic yourself, please get help.

This is of course, just a pseudonym. If I told you who I really was, I’d have to stun+fth you.

I have a soft spot for Pharah, from my Unreal/Quake/Tribes days and playing Rockets Only on Bloodgulch but more often than not I find myself playing tank or support.
