Geoff appreciation thread

you forgot to add the /s at the end of the post

Overwatch is about Hero Switching.
If a team is turtling a choke and attackers are not able to get through it. Wouldn’t the philosophy of the game dictate to choose a Hero to help your team break the choke?

Rant Or is the Philosophy, We don't want to give Symmetera a "Useful" Ability her Niche is "Useless abilities". Why is that so hard to understand? We can't have every hero have useful abilities. Then Genji's pickrate would drop!

If you watch OWL matches they don’t even guard chokes.

  • Hanamura teams stand on the roof of the building by objective.

  • In London they stand on the top building behind objective.

  • In Volksaya they standing at the objective.

Chokes are almost always avoided in Pro play anyway.

Symmetera is about as powerful as a baby with cute wool fluffy mittens.

Which is why her pickrate has been 1% or less for 3 consecutive years.

Then you got the whole other issue of teammates using it as an invulnerability, unless they stay at the entrance for the duration of the teleporting sequence.

I want to say hi to cool devs

Jeff read this thread once, and never touched it again
if he really listened to us, Archives wouldn’t be full of repeat or lackluster skins

I’m so sad you didn’t get more attention/appreciate for this comment. It’s gold.

World of Warcraft. Lich King was the PRIME of that game. I simply cannot say thank you enough for Wrath of the Lich King. Even from Burning Crusade, into Wrath it was a fun expanse with a lot going on. The good old pubs of Dalaran so everyone could have chilled for a nice glass of RP brew there, it was fun memories and all a great time in life there in Northerend. tosses out the pony keg :stuck_out_tongue:

I miss the OLD days of Wintergrasp completely filled to the brim of players and EVERYONE going. Those are what I miss MOST!! 'KEEP UR FEET ON THE GROUND!"

I would honestly revert Junkrat back to a 0.3 or 0.25 projectile size, and reduce it to 0.2 upon hitting a surface. This would still accomplish the goal of nerfing spam and rewarding direct hits if that is what you guys wish to do.



this is some good satire, i like it

i am so excited for rein buffs

not the notification i was expecting…

inb4 someone yells at you for saying “buff”

lol i have like 400 hours on him you have to play him agro this will make it way better for my play style im just now playing comp again after 2 years because im excited for the changes but no tank likes the wait at choke for a pick play style and the game has way to much dmg for that now im going to be attacked i can feel it lol

So this was brought back… eh it a good thread

So Echo huhh? :smiley: Yes i am from Master Ian Gamer’s Echo video :smiley: I mean i like the idea but can you guys give us more hit-scan supports and tanks pls? So more DPS players would find these roles more interesting.

y’know i always had this conspiracy theory that Geoff was the good guy but nobody listened to him and as a tragic ironic twist he got scapegoated by the community

am i making sense? idk tbh

Even though the post is nice… I would like to read more post replies from Overwatch employees. Don’t just reply when there is an appreciation post or something similar.

Interact more with the community, have fun with them, blend with us.

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but they don’t appear to be active on the forum anymore, haven’t been for a long time. Last signed on Apr 24, '19, according to the statistic for ‘seen’.

Understandable though, given the somewhat questionable and slow balancing we’ve had along with the apparent realistic success rate of the hero reworks seeming to be on the low side. I can only count one hero rework which appeared to be an actual success, not simply because it was branded as ‘fine’ and then effectively abandoned… that successful one I can only think of is Torbjorn.

They only reply to stuff that praises them or echos something they already want to say.


I wouldnt mind for example to see a reply from Blizzard employee to all these “nerf Mei” posts… a troll reply :smiley: just to troll us and have fun with us! It will make me smile and think that behind all these blizzard posts is not a automatic answer but a person. If they dont blend with us, they will never understand what the community really wants.
