The Forums throughout 2018


#5

I running on doomfist hate from first day he was added tbh.


#6

By “mercy threads” i mean both, people for mercy, and against people who like mercy. So even people complaining about mercy threads, anything to do with mercy fits in into the definition


#7

I’m pretty sure that Tracer/Genji hate was more prevalent earlier in the year when dive was the main meta of high-level comps (like OWL). And don’t forget when D.Va was hated for a while (can’t remember when) when the official statistics were released for top 10 Heroes for each rank and D.Va was always in the top 2 and often the most selected.


#8

Can you give me the specific months/time it was more relevant so i can add in to the list :p?


#9

These forums are dark. I know exactly what to expect every time I log in. I’m not sure if this is a problem for the developers to solve or if its just a part of the current state of gaming.


#10

Tracer/Genji: Jan-Mar (pretty much pre-Brig).

D.Va: March (link to first post: Trickle down meta isn't real)


#11

Feb-Aug = The Sombra Wars


#12

DPS mains: “Supports are broken!”
Support mains: “DPS are broken!”
Tank mains: “I could really go for a Judge Reinhardt skin.”


#13

Here I thought every month was Mercy Month…


#14

Guilty as charged.


#15

You forgot Hanzo’s arc!


#16

Aim-lovers: “All tanks and supports (bar Ana and Zen) are broken!” :smiley:

Yup, these sorts of fisticuffs will just keep popping up on these forums, especially considering how many different groups OW tries to appeal to.

Not quite; the Mercy “grouped feedback” threads (i.e. the megathreads that had to keep being created due to how many people kept arguing about Mercy) have stopped.


#17

I just opened the forums today to over 300 unread posts in Mercy topics


#18

Better than when there were about 20k posts a month.


#19

Yes

No, they literally dominated the feed. Small posts were constantly being created, and of course the posts that got big were constantly bumped to the top.


#20

hey u forgot our revert symmetra threads . lol


#21

Okay but I’m not actually sure who this is supposed to be an indirect of. Obviously not Titanium because everybody loves them, and rightly so, but I don’t really feel Xavvy or Aria give Mercy mains a bad name either.


#22

I realize names cannot be named, but are you referring to the poster whose name is a type of Metal or the one who used to have a forumname starting with x but now has a forumname starting with r? or someone else?


#23

I don’t love Titanium. But it isn’t directed towards him. It’s neither Aria or Xavvy. We all know who it is. They go a step further and constantly plays the victim, and then wonders why everyone hates Mercy mains.

That’s all I’m gonna say before I get suspended for calling someone out or some bs.


#24

Ohhhhhhhh I know who it is now, I kinda forgot they aren’t a Zen main

Edit: And yes, I agree they actively hinder any progress to healing the DPS/Support divide
