    Re: Overwatch

    I've found it hard to actually get people to switch. I have to forcefully switch and try to push things to make it happen. I think I need to be more aggressive. I don't know all the ins and outs of the game so I try not to play coach. But it's getting to the point where I feel I need to be THAT guy.

    I rotate moira/dva/junk but will do my best to flex when I need. I'm totally cool playing support but I'm not nearly as comfortable with the other healers as Moira. That's entirely on me and no one else but if I'm going to be forced into support I'm gonna play what I know. I play an ok Lucio and a decent Zen but my damage output as Moira on top of the healing just fits my playstyle too perfectly. I'm never afraid to switch but it's always too little too late.

    The abrupt end was the last game we played and I don't think I'll be playing comp with him for a while. For me it stopped being entertaining like 10 years ago because he has anger issues. I have someone that's become a dedicated viewer who will call him salty in chat and my brother has my stream open while playing and that tilts him even more. He's a mod in my chat and almost banned this kid and i was like cut the shit and just stop being so fired up. He still doesn't know a lot about matchup and stuff and constantly criticises people for doing stuff he does all the time.

    Solo queue forever. I feel like my actual SR is like 2200 range. I'm not a fucking silver or low end gold. It's frustrating being stuck in this perpetual hell.

    Re: Overwatch

    Games where people are willing to switch for the benefit of the team are few and far between. Not sure why, since that's like the entire focus of the game, but it's uncommon. So rare, in fact, that I go out of my way to praise everybody in voice chat for being mature and actually switching for the win. Even if we lose, I praise, because god damnit, that's the kind of behavior we need to encourage (switching, not losing).

    I bought Brigitte's "Gold Gun" aka Legendary Mace before I even had a chance to play her in Quickplay. Then, when I did play her in Quick, I was absolutely smitten. What an amazing hero. They're going to probably need to nerf her a little bit, same as Moira. Also why hasn't Hanzo's Scatter Arrow been deleted yet?

    Had an awesome D.Va bomb the other night https://youtu.be/2nm6XRJ432Y and playing her in general feels like something I will be doing more often now that everyone and their mother is a Moira main. Been playing a lot of competitive lately and we're ending with a positive win/loss ratio so regardless of speed, WE CLIMBING, BAYBEEEEE.

    Tonight is woman crush wednesday aka Ladies Night on my stream, so I'll be playing as female heroes only and rocking out to female-led music. Gonna be really fucked if we need hitscan because my Widow is poopoo.

    Re: Overwatch

    i still play in irregular spurts which makes teaming with anyone who isnt Traitorous Jon very hard, but for Comp players, what are your thoughts about Brigitte in Comp? i hear that the nerf is swifty incoming already for her

    She's awesome. When something isn't working, I switch to her and magically win. This has happened multiple times but it's tough to start out as her because people automatically assume she's the second healer when really she should be 2nd DPS. Soldier heals allies too and we don't call him a healer, I fail to see why my gold damage gold elims Brigitte should be classified as support.

    So picking her right off the bat leads to people making picks that aren't going to support what I'm trying to do.

    She is also the ultimate Tracer counter and an adequate Genji counter. Squishy against most of the actual tanks but she can hold her own with anything smaller.

    So far the only issue's I've had with her in comp were when the enemy team correctly identified which hero was whooping their ass. A lot of the time nobody really assumes its the Brigitte that's the issue, which is beneficial.

    im very torn on brigittes place in comp now. on one hand, as a support main, brig has changed the meta for supports in every way i have always hoped for, someone who has a kit that will finally allow supports to fight back against backline destroyers like tracer and genji and reaper. maining brig this season has allowed me to soar in comp. howeverrrrrrr i have to admit that i feel a nerf is probably in order because right now shes too good at everything atm. brigette can protect the backline, give armor, surge heal from a distance, interrupt channeling ults like genji and reaper and roadhog and go through rein shields, is tough enough to be a support hunter of the other teams mercy/moiras, all the way up to the high gold/low plat level. so her overall utility probably needs to be dialed back a bit lulz, but ill enjoy it while it lasts.

    im very unsympathetic to the 'brigitte broke the meta' arguments that i constantly see on reddit though. overwatch meta has always favored 8-10 characters at any given season. just because brig and new hanzo has changed which 8-10 are currently in vogue now doesnt mean comp is broken by any means. when people say brig broke the meta i just read it as people who spent a lot of time getting guud at dive characters being bitter.

    Re: Overwatch

    Happy 2nd Anniversary, Overwatch!

    So much fun, so much salt, so many dupes.

    I like all of the skins except for Bastion because fuck Bastion. Petra looks dope and Competitive FFA should be... an interesting way to grind Gold Weapon points.

    What are you looking forward to in this update? Anything you missed out on from the prior event?

    Re: Overwatch

    I'm pretty sure the only "new" skins I am missing are Barbarian Zarya and the Blackhand Doomfist. Gonna grind out some Overwatch later to rectify this.

    This happened two nights ago. We were up 1 round in a game of Competitive on Lijiang Tower. I was playing Mercy and two of our players dropped, a Lucio and a Genji. We managed to kick enough ass to win despite it being a 4-v-6 situation. I am proud.

    Re: Overwatch

    Really enjoying new character Ashe but can't help but feel like her ultimate is incredibly OP. A turret that charges past the front line and can move a payload? I guess we'll have to see what people pick to counter her, but it seems like too much.

    Played some 4v4 Deathmatch Competitive for the golden weapon points (I think I'll probably gild Ashe, Lucio, Ana, or Roadhog next) and had a really fun time. The key seems to be having at least one healer and one Roadhog (for tank + self heals) on the team each time. The damage characters are interchangeable, but Mercy rez is in that mode is probably the best choice for healer.

    I'm ready for the next event already. Probably won't start for another two weeks but I have a fever and the only cure is more legendary skins. I imagine we'll get Christmas skins for Mercy, Brigitte, Zarya, Reaper, Wrecking Ball (probably a giant ornament), Reinhardt, and Symmetra. Will be fun to look back and see how I did with predictions.
