      I'm not sure if Hellfire is complaining about someone else causing it or boasting about how he's ruining peoples sleep patterns ;)

      Bobby the firefighter. Nice "ring" to it

  5. After playing Rocket League for so long before Lucioball was a much slower version of it. It got me to pick up Rocket League again.
  6. That's how I felt about it for awhile then it wasn't so bad anymore after grouping up. Now Genji makes me want to quit.
  7. Actually ends on the 17th and they said they would do a 2 week break before a new season starts. So at least 3 weeks away.
  8. That is 6 hours ahead of me so that would be 12-2pm for me. Problem is I usually get off of work at 2pm my time. The team I play with is okay but the leader is a Streamer and level 200+ but doesn't have the knowledge yet to know what each class does well. They only play with what they are good with so no one can switch to what the team needs and adapt too. I feel decent and comfortable with all classes in the game (besides Bastion because he's terrible) but I can't switch to something else if they can't switch to compensate. The only good thing we had going was decent communication. For example after I got off for the night last night, they continued with ranked and in several matches and Pharah was a huge problem for them and kept complaining. Issue was they had no counters to Pharah. There are 6 decent classes that can counter a Pharah and no one could play those classes and as a result they lost those matches.
  9. What times do you normally play? I don't think I have you on b.net yet. I want to get into more ranked when season 2 starts up in September. Not sure how the time difference or ping will work out when that time comes. Just got back into Ranked last night with a full team and we did fairly well. We were all open in communication and probably won 7 out 10 of our games.
  10. That was my bad. Named it incorrectly because it suggested that name after my Hexakill file from my first McCree vidoe.

    Ranking sites

    I personally prefer watcher.gg. Ill need to check out this overbuff one.
  12. I forgot to share this in the right forum, but this is very old. Got this over a month ago a couple of days after the game came out. Been used in a couple of compilations so far and still waiting for the 3rd compilation to post from that user.
  13. We have have 3 somewhat active Overwatch threads. Can we please get a sub forum for this please?

    1. fever


      Think we had about 20 as I recall for Dota before that got one ;) 'tis a good idea though, especially as 4 of the 6 sub forums listed are pretty much dead

    I have not run into any issues yet because I am still trying to get placed. Only done 4 matches so far but the same issues happened with a couple of friends I was playing with last night.
  15. I use Shadowplay all the time. It has the lowest file sizes for some of the best quality and the interface is simple. In the end, to make video look good depends on your video rendering software. I have a license for Fraps but never use it anymore because it draws its recording power from your CPU rather then your GPU, which causes huge performance issues and frame drops. I had an issue with OBS with sound/video syncing issues and recordings would always be off in the end. File size is pretty small with OBS but you get more dropped frames with OBS then you do Shadowplay. A lot of people seem to favor OBS because they don't mind the frame drops and you are able to stream to Twitch with it. You can with Shadowplay as well but the settings are very minimal compared to OBS for streaming.

    My first sextuple/team kill.

    It was a sad night last night. Played almost 7 hours straight.

    Can we have a subforum for this game?
  19. Didn't see anything either after reviewing.

    There is some slight overlap with some characters but the differences between classes are noticeable when you maximize their abilities. Bastion is definitely a defender role and can out damage a Torbjorn. Before the open beta,Torb and Bastion were very similar and a common complaint on the subreddit at that time. I find Torbjorn more of support like Symmetra since she also provides armor and creates turrets. Dongles had to look this one up because we didn't know what the number under her crosshair was but Zarya is very strong when her energy is maxed out. It is not explained in the game but when use your shield, it absorbs that damage the shield blocks and charges her up. It maxes out at 100 and signifies how much damage amplification you get, resulting in more damage output. She probably does the most damage out of the tanks. Roadhog is more of ability/hero blocker. You can grab bastions in turret form, pull Pharah's from the sky, grab Junkrat tires to absorb the damage away from the team, etc. McCree is my favorite because you get free kills with him. Yeah you can free shoot if you want but you might get one or two kills a game like that. You have to stun them with the flash bomb and right click to get the "fan the hammer" kill. This can take anyone out with one volley unless it's a tank at full health. Even if it's a tank they won't live if you have a teammate there. On that note, I find McCree and Reaper similar because they both need to be close to maximize damage. I think I only played Reaper once in the open beta. Even though there is overlap, that is what Blizzard is good at doing... balancing and making changes. Over time there will probably be several changes to abilities, especially when it gets competitive. This mode also rotates every week as well. The the stress test before this I think there was faster health regen with faster ultimate regen and damage amplification.

    Back in the early beta stages he only had 250 health instead of 300 that he has now. But... he also had a shield that absorbed 1000 damage that also deployed while he was in turret form. He also didn't have 360 degree rotation back then either. In this stage, people had complained that he was too under powered and easy to counter. So they ended up buffing him with some crazy health regen on top of repairing himself. He still felt easy mode back then and strong so I don't know why people were complaining. I think a good fix would to be add more damage drop off from far distances. Maximize damage if you are within 25 meters or something. Edit: Here is my youtube video on Bastion earlier in the beta with the differences.

    I didn't think I was going to like Overwatch when it was announced. I was afraid at the time it was going to kill TF2 for me. When I got into my first beta my whole perspective changed and played non stop. With my 2nd beta I hardly had time to play it but with this 3rd open beta it was non stop. Wouldn't even eat dinner so I could maximize my time in the game. After playing the first one though I knew at the moment this will be a game I would stick with. This will be my new TF2 where I will put in another 1200 hours an probably more. Blizzard has always been great with updates/balance/security and customer service. Jeff Kaplan seems to really care about this game so I think it will go a long way to just have fun and also for the competitive aspect. Overwatch was only in beta and it was 4th on Twitch last night with total viewers. Once competitions get going and they start streaming those, it will get a bigger following.
