Overwatch!


#66

Occurred to me after a few brief but fun matches tonight, that it’s become so standard to see our main support players in the cards that I barely even mention it any more. That is both a failing and a shame!

So, let me take this opportunity to say, to the healers who keep us dumb bastards rat-a-tat’ing - thank you! Your rejunevative goop is treasured.

Thanks for the support, DM (har har)!

One day, I’d like to do an overwatch drinking game with the following rules:

  • when you lose a game, take a shot
  • when someone else gets a play of the game in which they kill you, take a shot
  • when you’re not in the cards after a game, take a shot

#68

by those rules i will be dead


#69

Oh and if someone spams the “heal me” voice line, everyone takes a shot

Adrock and morrow carrying the team as usual basically :smiley:

Loving the fact we’re doing so well together. Hopefully we’ll branch out and try experimenting a bit more. Perhaps a risky Doomfist/genji game? XD


#71

Could do a series of matches where we all pick our worst characters, though then we might fight over who gets to pick Genji or Doomfist. I’ll probably be claiming Widow or McCree for that one.
If we know in advance we’re going to suck (and apologize to whoever joins our team), what’s the worst that could happen?


#72

I played widow a round yesterday. it worked fine until i shot their widow, who then repeatedly shot me.

I can play doomfist. not well enough to get kills, cause damage, or contribute in any way. I guess what i’m saying is, i can select the character and spawn, which are important first steps in learning any character.

So… How does one Overwatch?


#74

elevate your eyes.

or play soldier to get the hang of it until you want to try something more effective? Depends what you like playing in FPS’ really. Best bet is to get it installed and then hop into a game with folk on discord. That’s how i got started and i’m now moderately proficient with 2 or 3 characters :smiley:


#75

Well it’s installed! So that’s one step completed, am I winning yet?

Endorsed; Shot Caller.

It’s overwatch, no one ever really wins. Or possibly you win just by taking part? It’s a grey area*. Just post your blizzard id thing and hop on discord in the evening?

Now here is a video of me shooting some people from last night:

  • I really want a multiplayer game with no win condition; there are objectives, possibly procedurally added as the round progresses, and when an arbitrary condition is met, the game just ends, everyone gets a ‘the game is over’ message, and there’s no scoreboard. I want to see what sort of people would play this game, and consider the question of whether it’s the gameplay itself or the winning/possibility of winning that make it enjoyable. And I’ve just realised that describes our multiplayer games of Civ.

Erm this thingy: VirulentPip#2747 ?

#80

#81

Welcome Pip! Glad to have another on board!


#82

#83

Holy shit. Lovely ult!


#84

Prepare yourself for a Play of the Game so amazing, the algorithm selected it over toXander’s Rain of Justice as Pharah and any of the enemy team’s Ult wipes.


#85

Quick question chaps, I always see you on play this but not on our discord, any reason why? I’ve started watching a few of these videos, and its sort of got me a bit interested in it.
