    So looks like Baguette is not so broken after all (And after a couple of patches). I'm surprised of the usage of Zenyatta. Well, I'm not actually since is one of the characters who has more potential, but still a very risky pick in mostly conditions.

    Come on you know OW shorts are fucking amazing. No need to go full edge where it isn't deserved.

    I am really glad companies are starting to realize they can't make better game and just remake old once. I was hoping that would happen.

    Yet another streamer/pro player telling everyone they only did it for money the last few seasons. I know he quit pro scene before and tried to enjoy it streaming only, but in the end the game is so trash, that even streaming it is worse then working in mccdonalds. Deal with it.

    He "quit" pro scene? He is an attention whoring child who got banned for being a retard.

    Very few people can turn their hobbies into full time jobs and still enjoy them. I doubt unstable kids make it in that list.

    Flash news! There is players who are sellouts playing competitive games where they are good at just for profit and they don't even like or enjoy the games the play! But I'm curious how it can be related that with the game being trash.

    No he actually quit. He was so bored of pro scene despite being arguably the most mech gifted dps in OW. He then started throwing out of boredom and frustration. Eventually he thought maybe if not pro scene he could still make $$ streaming and find a way to enjoy OW that way. But OW is so trash that he can't take that shit either.

    Plenty other streamers openly said the same about OW but decided to stick to streaming for $$ or switched games despite financial loss. Including Mendo, Grego, Aimer7, Wraxu, Poke, Lassiz, J00mla, Timthetatman, steel and thats just off top of my head.

    I have some people on my flist that still play but they are all either something like rein, winston, or mercy mains - i,e they don't give a shit about the game in terms of its shooting mechanics etc...

    I could see how someone would deliberately chose to brush off dafran as unstable or whatever the fuck interpretation to avoid the obvious conclusion. You can't keep doing it for the bazillion players that flat out quit or switched games while openly talking about how trash OW is on stream on the daily basis without showing any instability or any lack in ability to milk it for $$.

    If you don't understand how pro/streamer scene thinking the game is a joke and is only good to entertain retards that play it, you have some THICC fanboy lenses on. Also if you are kinda new to the game. Enjoy your honeymoon. Nothing wrong with it.

    Yeah yeah, mendo plays tracer and goes emo about diva, wraxu plays hanzo and goes ape shit cause tracers are cancer and so on. And why the fuck would you even include tim in a list like that?

    Btw, all competitive team games have that issue, pros being frustrated on ladders/streams. It's completely natural just like children turning into drama queens when they have an audience.

    Bullshit. This is the only game outside of maybe SF5/PUBG to some degree where pros/streamers actively think the game is trash and not just getting tilted once in a while.

    Two things:

    - A pro thinking the game is trash means nothing by itself. His opinion or his point of view is not more true just for being a pro. That's an argumentum ad verecundiam fallacy.
    - 9 pros (I would have to study each case separatedly btw) thinking the game is trash means nothing by itself. The amount of people thinking the same thing means nothing. That's an ad populum fallacy.

    That guy is not the first who does that. You are truly fabulously optimistic if you think that every person who gets in the competitive world does it for the same reason. That said, is very easy to start hating a game when you are forced to play it a high level. I remember when I did follow CSGO competitive scene years ago, and saw the "lifestyle" of the players. Having to study the maps, the metagame, the skyboxes (For throwing grenades), practising aiming, practising recoil control... and training/playing daily for being ready. It's very rough. It's work. And when you play videogames not for pure enjoyment but for job, it's very easy to start to hate them.

    PD: Honeymoon? I've been playing the game actively since its launch. I saw good days, and bad days. Now I'm pretty satisfied what they have done with Ashe overall design for example.

    And dota 2 and CS and so on and on and on. It's normal, because the game shouldn't be balanced around pros trying to find practice with random people (even if high skilled, there's a huge difference in work put in the game between the 2 categories) while getting their ego stroked by viewers.

    To be fair, right now the game has the least number of completely unplayable characters than ever. But it took them 2 years, and it doesn't "trickle up" to the professional level.

    Overwatch League creators wanted it to be like a "real" sport. Well, they succeeded. It's as boring and full of empty hype and drama as most professional sports. Watching good yet non-professional streamers is way more interesting, because they actually try stuff instead of playing like robots.

    Why is Bastion so unpopular in competitive games? Aren't Shield+Bastion is the most common defense tactic ever?

    It's too predictable and static for pro games. Static Bastion defense is trivial to counter through hero swaps, positioning and ults, you can't easily retreat with it and it's nearly impossible to reestablish once you lose your preferred position.

    Bastion needs to be useful outside of his turret form. This is so obvious. I hope it doesn't take them another year to figure out and fix. Personally, I think his turret form (with updates) should be the ultimate and tank form (with downgrades) should be the second "normal" configuration.

    I still don't understand why people play this game in first place, I mean all this game has to offer:
    1) Poorly done characters, their personalities is fucking bland and their motivations and actions has no sense at all. Not to mention that characters oversexualized as possible, so Blizzard was able to sell a game to horny people and preying on their unhappiness with their sexual life. However, I pointed this out not because I am against sex in computer games, but because retards from Blizzard made an attempt to ban rule34 about their game.
    I mean, Blizzard made a fetish driven game and sacrificed every other aspect of character development, but attempted to suppress anyone who was actually helping to sold their game, by promoting sexual elements from game.
    Porn is fine, everyone have their fetishes after all, but when character has offer close to 0 anything besides porn and even porn censored - game bad at offering a interesting characters.
    2) Awful and inconsistent setting, with contradictions and lack of logic everywhere. I mean, funny setting with parody elements is fine, but when devs with serious faces trying to sell idea that you can meet hamster, gorilla, blue skinned chick, cowboy and bowman from japan on same battlefield and timeline - it's a fucking lazy design. It's looks like some kid tried to paint a crossover picture with references and parody, but it end up a fucking mess filled toxic colors and vague sexual symbolism.
    But at least messy kid's painting don't make me puke, unlike cringe explanations why some idiotic bitch can manipulate time without affecting whole fucking planet. Also seems standardization in world of Overwatch isn't a thing, because everyone wear random clothes instead of normal armor or at least uniform.
    Not to mention, that (according to Blizzard) there is no blood in wars of the future, no rape, no looting and no building destruction. And no civilian causalities, ofc. In another words: all battles looks like conflict on annual fetishist convention, with usage paint ball guns and rented apartments. I have nothing against weird or exotic games, but not when devs trying to sell it as serious shit with epic story.
    3) Balance. Blizzard famous for their "awesome" balance since WoW, where they can't properly balance 12 classes. In Overwatch it even worse, there already 27 and more coming. Nuff said.

    Yeah. I don't know how Brigitte passed their internal playtesting on release, and I'm not sure anyone will play her when her main ability is disrupted by barriers.

    They should have done the sensible thing and reversed the effects (stun vs displacement) of shield bash and mace throw or whatever it's called. Right now, shield bash is movement + stun + damage + safe healing initiation. Too many things rolled into one. Nerf it too much, and she becomes useless.

    Poor Sky broke from the inanity.

    Also, this is some epic level of damage control: : "How do we get people to stop talking about the Ellie failure?"
