Re: Overwatch (the thread of the game)

I can stop playing Overwatch any time. Really. I just need a couple of matches to take the edge off before bed is all.

Everyone's raving about D.Va's new cat costume, but I'm too happy with her New England Uprising one. :D

Been playing as Sombra a lot this past week to mix things up. I'm starting to really really like her. I need to get a better handle on using her teleporter ability more effectively though.

I've realized that if I could stop playing Overwatch then I could probably play a lot more other games.

But.

Last night I started using Junkrat. My first match with him resulted in a 15 kill streak. :|

So I was trying out Brigitte on the PTR, and I think she's going to be my new go-to support. She's got a really fun and active playstyle.

She seems really cool. I'm excited.

Ive been trying to really mix up my picks lately. Junkrat, Reaper, Tracer, Moira... Really trying to get comfortable with a wider variety outside my favorites.

No matter what I'm playing I still try to squeeze in a few matches each night. This has been going on since the Halloween event for me.

And I've yet to try her because every match everyone scrambles to pick her first. :?

It's alright, give it a few weeks and no-one will ever pick her because she's a support hero.

That's what I did with Moira, and I almost never struggle to play as her now, which is good as she's one of my 2 most played heroes this season.

you're 100% right. I was actually thinking the same thing last night. Like, "really guys? Most nights I'm stuck playing a support because nobody ever wants to..." haha.

Speaking of, Zenyatta is my chosen Support these days. I like Moira, but I feel way more comfortable with Zen.

I'm also really into Tracer lately. I just find the approach of like buzzing around picking off health and being annoying really fun. I also feel like once it occurred to me that Tracer can totally work as just a distraction for the other team at times as well.

I've been working on Widowmaker as well, but I'm not great with her yet. I think it's a matter of (A) finding good spots to keep her safe, and (B) remembering to move from those spots often enough that I don't paint a big SHOOT ME sign on myself. I did get 9 kills with her in a match last night which isn't amazing or anything but still felt good as I'm making some progress with her. (Also I saved up gold and bought her that awesome Nova skin).

Tracer is the character I first got into when I played the game, but nowadays I mostly play support. My most played DPS these days is probably Pharah, but I'm starting to think that Junkrat is often more effective. I still like Tracer, but I#'m well out of practice, and I really wish I was any good as Sombra, but I'm not.

My most played Tank is D.Va. I don't mind Roadhog or Orisa either, but I wouldn't say I'm any good of them. It's probably my weakest category outside of D.Va to be honest, I prefer to fill support or DPS over tanks.

I mainly play Symmetra and Moira, but I love playing as Ana too. I'm far far less effective as Ana than Moira though. I'll fill a Mercy when needed, and I like Zen despite being hit and miss on him.

My weakest suppoirt by far is Lucio. I just cannot play him, and I don't enjoy trying either.
