Goodbye, overwatch (rant)


#3

You do know Brig is getting nerfed really hard right? You may wanna check the PTR first.


#4

What an oddly, ironically timed post.


#5

I’m done waiting for the next patch, because every time the next patch is just as bad as the last one.


#6

Literally an update to the PTR where they are nerfing several CC/stun abilities along with the developers saying they are going to cut back on their strength.

But hey, if ya don’t wanna play then don’t. Just don’t expect people to point out the honestly funny timing of your post.


#7

Ah well that’s a different then. Good luck brother.

Its alright to leave when you are no longer having fun. Your sanity and enjoyment is more important.


#8

you may want to look first

these are some meta changing nerfs, they change the entire way the game is played now.


The balancing of Overwatch
#9

Lmao shoot (20 characters)


#10

Come play Destiny 2.

We have giant Worms :slight_smile:


#11

Well, I’ve always said that video games are supposed to be fun, and if you aren’t having fun then it’s time to stop. I wouldn’t recommend jumping to a sinking ship like Destiny 2, but maybe a new game will come out that you can get in on the ground floor and have good time.

Either way, luck to ya.


#12

welp, two of the most annoying heroes this game has are going to be nerfed. Its something.


#13

I’ll agree on the stun/cc aspect.

Personally, I’d prefer to be instagibbed over stunlocked.

It’s the same thing, but more honest.

If you think an instagib is unfair, well, then a stun probably is too.

A lot of the game is setup to reward unskillful players, and let them worm their way out of situations via composition (e.g. recomp).

Live recomping is the worst thing to exist in any game ever.

Ultimately, it’s a carebear-tier FPS which rewards composition and recomposition over skillful gameplay.

Never going to be balanced like something more rigid in its way like Counter-Strike (everyone’s 100HP with the same available equipment).

It fills the gap for me since WoW’s PvP is just absolutely atrocious lately, but I can’t see it being a mainstay for years and years like a more reliable, solid FPS because of the reasons OP mentioned and I’ve covered here.

Good times though!


#14

Oh, you’re not wrong. I don’t know if I would use the ‘Carebear’ pejorative, but this most certainly a game with a very low skill ceiling. I love it, but at the same time I am under no illusion that I’m playing an arcade shooter like CounterStrike or a tactical shooter like ArmA.


#15

“Play nice, play fair” is the most carebear mentality to gaming ever.

Authoritative drivel.

I absolutely intended the pejorative.


#16

I know you intended the pejorative. I just think it’s a silly thing to use a pejorative over, being a video game and all. But, well, some people like to be angry.


#17

Interesting choice of words.


#18

Yeah, well, if you’re going to be angry about sportsmanship then you’re going to be angry about sportsmanship. You don’t get to punch then complain about being hit back.


#19

You’re confusing criticism with anger (you seem to be looking for it).

EDIT: Back to the topic at hand? Maybe?

EDIT 2: This chump’s just looking for a fight…


#20

Uh huh. Talk to me about sportsmanship again.
