    I think we can all agree that trailer made Reinhardt look wayyy more powerful than anyone else dude straight up channeled juggernaut tanking and killing everyone with ease makign everyone else's abilities look weak in comparison.

    Now as for the f2p model, so far they've been good at it. Hearthstone had one of the better f2p models. Not Dota 2 tier, but you could stay free to play just fine and take your time building your collection, on top of having plenty of viable budget options *budget as in using very little ingame resources* for competing. So for a card game, which are INHERENTLY p2w by design, it worked pretty well.

    Anything that's not Dota2 tier is shit tier. The fact that there's more shit and less shit doesn't change that it's shit. Give me an option to pay 60$ and unlock everything like a normal videogame. Card games are not inherently p2w by design, only by history.

    With all the hype that overwatch is getting, I wouldn't be surprised if it can pull off the Dota 2 style of f2p.

    The designs of characters look simple enough to add extra costumes, hats etc. This might be Blizzard's way of trying more micro-transactions.

    I used to be really into Halo and Cod, i know, those dudebro games....still loads of fun. Haven't really played an FPS actively in a few years, this game i probably going to be the one pulling me back.
    I usually only like a few character designs from games where you can choose different characters/classe but surprisingly i like the vast majority of them. Glad it isn't a "realistic" looking game either, done with that shit.

    Never underestimate weebs and their potential waifu buying habits. $150 is standard price for them.

    Also you don't understand the figurine buying market. There's plenty that would gladly buy a figure from a game they won't ever play and plenty that would buy the figure just from that trailer alone.

    You seriously can't be defending this... They haven't even established the universe yet.
    They aren't in a position to be so sure in the product to be selling $150 statues.

    I literally do not understand my peers anymore... No one questions anything; It's all hype and flash now.

    $150 is around the standard price for these kind of statues. Having statues already don't bother me has it's a product of purely decorative value. Said if Blizzard already had pre-orders available, season passes or some shit like that I'll be with you.

    This is my last post in here but seriously... We aren't even talking about the game right now(because there's nothing to talk about yet)... But they got merch out the ass...

    The whole thing just reeks of being built in a corporate board room meeting. Only thing it needs are Xtreme Cool Letterz™ and the marketing scheme is complete.

    I am seriously dumbfounded right now...

    If I wasn't already caught up in getting some doujins & figues for other stuff I may have popped down the money for this lol. If they make one for Zenyatta I may not be able to resist.

    Curious, how open were the levels for characters like Hanzo & Widow Maker to move around in? Also do characters have varying health totals?

    Yes, there was definitely varying health totals. Tankier characters were harder to kill, not to mention having armor and such.

    Also, I guess it depends on the level. On the egyptian level, I was able to climb up almost any surface with hanzo. But his climb seemed to have a timer, like you can climb X feet high, rather than just climbing up any wall. So the really tall walls, I couldnt climb up. But they were definitely designed with mobility in mind. At one point we had to capture a control point where there was basically 2 bottlenecks to choose from, but with him (and also with Reaper) I was able to climb/teleport up to the top of the choke, and attack from there, catching some of the people off guard. With characters like Reinheardt, you're forced with no mobility to just come in with your shield nad your high HP to survive. It played very different.

    The other map where we had to escort a cart, payload style, that one felt like it mattered less vertically and more was about horizontal distance. But it could just be because I was playing a non mobile character on that map that I just didnt notice the verticalness of the map? I did try reaper when I was defending on that map, and was able to set up some flanks with his teleport/shadowstep, which was awesome. Popping up behind a sniper and unloading with shotguns was sweet.

    Health totals definitely varies heavily between some characters, from what I've seen the health totals are.

    600 - Reinhardt.
    500 - Winston (goes up to 1000 in beserk mode).
    250 - Reaper, Bastion.
    200 - Hanzo, Widowmaker, Pharah, Mercy, Torjborn (Dwarf Engineer), Symmetra.
    150 - Tracer, Zenyatta.

    Blizzard doesn't want to over-sexualize females, but adding in the stereotypical characters is no problem. You got indian zen-dude and you got hanzo the samurai/archer dude.

    They need to add a cyborg spear-chucker. Obviously he would be black and speak with an African accent.

    I can't tell if this is sarcastic or not, if it is forgive me. This "Indian zen-dude" is a robot, you've only got your self to blame for automatically assuming anyone dressed in that garb and sitting cross-legged is indian. I don't see any problem with Hanzo either, he uses a bow and arrow and is Japanese. I see nothing wrong with a Japanese guy dressing with his culture in mind. Not to mention he has funny chicken lookin' robot legs. Next thing ya know you've got people complaining that the Reaper is a stereotype because all shadowy people are assassins...

    I don't see why.

    Based on the sudden change in art style compared to Blizzard games of the last 10 years, the fact that it's a class based shooter, one can come to the conclusion that TF2 was at least an inspiration. Especially considering TF2 has been going strong for 7 years, it makes sense that other developers would take the hint and try something similar of their own.

    Anyway...

    That ninja and cowboy look boss - I need info asap.

    As for the known characters, I'm intrigued by Tracer, Reinhardt, Widowmaker and Bastion.

    Its not entirely a class based shooter though. Its a character based shooter. You choose a role (Support, damage, tank) and choose a character that fills that role (Tracer, Hanzo, Reaper). TF2 you choose a class (Scout, Sniper) then choose the loadout for that class (Fan, Bow).

    Its not an unfair comparison as most people know TF2, and they even have like Payload maps, but it feels less like TF2 when you get your hands on it. Having abilities alone takes it to a new level. Youre not only defined by your guns.

    Did you notice any Man vs. Machine/Horde mode options?

    Also great to hear about payload maps. Anything that stops the game from being just a plain deathmatch. CP_Dustbowl and PL_Goldrush had me addicted to TF2 for a long time. Funny that they're both extremely linear.

    They said theres no deathmatch period. All matches are objective based. CP and Payload is what they had, with the Egyptian CP being attack/defend style CP. I didnt get to play the japanese map.

    Right now theres like no options, and too early to really think about that. They dont seem to want to restrict choices; no locking one team to just bad guys vs good guys, or allowing only 1 of a class to be used for the entire game. I feel like that will be fun for pro matches, drafting in a 6v6 format, but for casual play they are keeping it as open as possible; you can even switch heroes at base as much as you want.

    People are going to find a way to subtly get deathmatch in this game, even if it means everyone flocking to the nearest equivalent of Hightower.

    Though that example is only because of easy it is to hold a stalemate on that map.

    I didn't play or get into TF2 or Monday Night Combat so this game is very fresh and excting to me. I really like the bright and vibrant 'comic-booky' artstyle and characters.
