    - low (very?) skill floor
    - high enough ceiling
    - it's pvp everyone wrecks at some skill level
    - going to have competitive mode soonTM after release (though at their speed probably gonna be ironed out in 1-2 years)

    The more I played of this game the more I liked it and now I'm considering buying it. I think it's the best the only good thing Blizzard made since SC2. The problem is that none of my friends want to blow 40 euros on this so I am on the fence - playing alone would get boring fast, I'd imagine. What do you guys think is better - Overwatch or 10 pizzas?

    I uninstalled this during the closed beta. Wouldn't play it if you gave me six copies and the super duper special edition with extra cheese. Dark Souls 3, though, you can buy me.

    No way man. I like OW but not enough to sacrifice 20 pizzas for it. Also, buying games for other people? Pff, where do you think I live - in a 1st world country?

    So you're saying your friends are worth less to you than a slice of pizza? That's harsh, man :(

    When did 20 pizzas become a slice of pizza.

    I have a couple of friends who got this, so I'm getting it too. We had a blast during the beta. It's a good game as long as someone is pushing the damn cart.
    Nothing sucks more than playing with some mouthbreathers that don't bother with the damn objective.

    Top things I did in the beta:
    1. Flying my D.Va at the enemy cart and jumping out at just the right time to blow them all up. It worked perfectly.
    2. Playing with Lucio on Ilios and pushing a whole bunch of guys out of the map with his secondary fire.
    3. Joining a match with 5 Reinhardts. The dumbest and funnest thing ever, can't ever remember if we won, but controlling the point was awesome.
    4. Taking Hanamura in record time with a D.Va, a Pharah and a Mercy. The rest of our team kept the enemies busy, while we flew from the side. We took A in less than a minute, then rushed from the side of B and took that just as fast. It was the easiest match ever, I want to try that again.

    I didn't play TF2 for long because it felt like there were weapons and stuff behind locks from what I remember and I didn't really bother trading but yeah, not a lot of experience with TF2. As for overwatch I'd say casual shooter is entirely dependent on who you're playing against, since it's pvp only. Skill floor and ceiling depend on the hero, but even 76 who's probably the easiest still has to direct hit his rockets to deal optimal damage, so you know whatever. Then Hanzo or Genji innately have higher ones due to being squishy and the delays on their bow/shurikens. Far as I know they had a competitive mode and then removed it before the last open beta because they had complaints about how it counted the score and are re-working it for release. I like the heroes and that most matches last less than 20 minutes so it's easy to do and then do something else and come back, I'll probably play shitloads of it.

    Activision-Blizzard game? Hah, not sooner than a decade. Or maybe never.

    Activision, sure. But Blizzard? They put their games on sale often enough.

    What games? Diablo 3?
    Not to mention this isn't a full price game in the first place.

    And also, didn't they release Starcraft 2 in 3 full priced parts?
