Beta starts October 27th.
So Ready for Beta, cant wait to play.
account flagged for beta, installing now.
Pbbth. I got nada.
have they announced when the next wave will be? sad day
said it was a 12hr rollout. Nothing for me yet, so sad =(
Unless you're on a Friends and Family list (or in some cases, a large enough streamer), it may be a while. Not expecting anything for a few weeks.
Yea, im on a friends and family list, thats why i got in.
Overwatch Subreddit has been a sea of salt. Why is it every beta people get so salty. I signed up literally minutes after sign ups started and didn't get in but I just went back to playing wow its not a huge deal
Didn't get in. Can't wait to try it when I do. Will be watching whatever stream I can.
People need to chill out a bit. I was friended by a person while playing arena tonight who complained that not getting into the beta had thrown off his game so much that he lost to me. That's a new one for losing, but I always appreciate the inventive excuses.
Sorry if this rubs salt in anyone's wounds, but I am seriously impressed with how smooth and polished this game is. Holy shit I am bad at FPS though.
edit: Also funny story time. Was playing with a few friends and this random guy joins the game and starts playing Mercy. Apparently he felt we weren't protecting him enough because he jumps on voice chat and starts yelling about how "if ya'll don't help protect your healers I'm going to play something else" and other niceties. Dude, the beta has been out for one fucking day and we are winning, calm down satan.
was watching a stream of it all yesterday, looks like it's going to be a blast.
after discussing the game with a friend, are there any other games that can compare to this style of FPS?
to me it feels like a moba-FPS.. maybe TF2?
I can feel the hype. My body is ready to try this, play fallout, and dig into tree of savior.
The game modes shown so far are pretty much TF2 Capture Point and Payload. Quick, someone mod Dustbowl for Overwatch heh.
Well I've been non-stop studying for an exam I just finished today so I can finally fucking play video games again. Opened up my battle.net and I see that I can install it. Can't wait until work is done. :D
Objectives seem very similar to TF2, but some of the class skill-sets almost remind me more of those old counter-strike mod servers... warcraft mod, superhero mod, etc. Gives me some major nostalgia and even more hype for this game.
Played for about two hours last night and I gotta say... I SUCK at FPS.
I actually enjoy it though. I think I spend a lot of time right now trying to figure out what hero to choose for what situation. Like.. okay they're turtled up at the last objective, what hero can I choose to break their defenses? I never really played TF2 so this is all new to me in a FPS style of game.
