I only speak the truth. Got POTG and gold elims all night long
she's actually really good on attack if the team will work around it. can be underwhelming on d and koth at times.
I'm a Winston main now
Been using wrecking ball and Bridgette. Ball is nice because you can actually dodge attacks by rolling up and getting to cover to reload then rolling back to a position to start firing again.
Brig is themost fun hero in the game. Ham is close but i struggle playing him except against zen/mercy comps
I'm getting back into Mei. The panic that sets in when a character is backing up and there is an icewall behind them is fantastic to see. Or when a ghost form reaper is trying to leave but they get blocked. It's just fantastic.
mei is sneaky good right now
Winston + Ana may be back in the meta. The instant +300 HP with nano + the mercy nerf means Winston will kill anything mercy pockets now.
Brigette is the biggest killjoy in the game. Mindless swinging with a charge that has a large hit box that supersedes rein charges and basically unkillable during ult. Not to mention can combo a tracer from 100 to 0.
She’s only gotten better now that Zarya grav is nerfed.
Lot of weird comps are about to be meta, at least in comp
Sym + bastion
I gave up trying to be good with Wrecking Ball and just enjoy fucking around with him when I wind up with him in mystery heroes.
Went 2-8 in placements and got platinum. Probably deserved nickel or tin
i been trying to tell you w/l doesn't matter
did amanda finish hers?
Level 9 or 10 right now. Almost there
Ok TrustyPatches you can play torb now
Praise God, a Brigette counter
I don’t play video games
I like Busan. Nice to not have so much map wasted just getting back to the point where no one ever engages. Kind of eliminates the benefit of kills, changes tactics a little bit.
Im pretty happy about dafran being in owl season 2
The new hero looks neat and like i'll suck with her
Someone for all the mouse users to use when they’re bored with hanzo/widow
Well this is awkward
He wontake it through the season. No chance.
That thing i was talking about last night CUtigers
Okay that was really fucking cool
Jayne will save overwatch
Fucking lol at luka.
Dirk actually did pretty good.
That was amazing
Shitty wrecking ball players are hilarious to watch. It’s so distracting.
I miss OWL
OW is still my favorite video game. I just kind of love it.
Kind of weird, but I like watching people play OW more than actually playing myself nowadays. OW is easily one of my favorite games of all time, but it is awful to play competitive without a group. Solo-queuing competitive ladder (especially as a DPS who cares about winning) sucks the fun out of the game, but I always try to do my placements. My best role by a huge margin is DPS, but it's almost throwing in solo queue to lock a dps slot because 3 or 4 others inevitably will as well. Also, my hands go numb as fuck when I play for more than an hour, and I have an office job, so I'm limited to weekend gaming only :(
I don't recommend getting old
Same here. Im not good at shooters therefore dont play dps and comp is still a nightmare for me. Ive never been into esports at all really but i love watching ow. Bliz have done a fantastic job with OWL. Really excites about season 2. It truly makes the football offseason bearable.
Solo queue sucks for sure my favorite is triples but my friend group doesn't have anyone who can DPS. We have the heals and tanks but we're at the mercy of our pick up DPS to be able to close out kills. Sometimes we get good ones who communicate and sometimes not.
Too bad you don’t have a whole group of people that still play semi regularly that would allow you to play dps that are on a different platform.
we should do fantasy owl tho
If ya'll play this weekend, hit me up
I'm down. Taking Dafran as my first pick YOLO
I’m just worried that goats will still be the meta. That shit will be super repetitive to watch.
probably for the first few weeks but i dont really expect it to dominate the meta forever, but teams have still basically only been playing that for months so
If not goats, I could see Ashe+Mercy comps as well. Ashe being able to insta kill with a headshot seems pretty broken
bob destroys lower ranks. its pretty sad.
New reaper may make an appearance once teams test it out some more. His lifesteal is crazy strong. He might just take a tank spot in goats and make a slight alteration to the comp.
Inb4 people are still running goats but with reaper instead of dva
Fun convo i just had with some guys who we'll call winston and dps
Im on zen. Other team has a tracer. He doesnt die for the first 2 minutes. So i switch to rein hoping winston will switch. He doesnt.
Me: winston please switch to a healer your tank play is trash
Winston: i'll switch but i have a thousand golds
Me: and you havent killed the tracer once and our dva isnt peeling
Dps: dont listen to him (me) he's in gold
Me: i may be in gold but your sr cant be much higher than mine or we wouldnt be playing together right now
Then i switch back to zen bc they switched off tracer. We push the payload all the way. Start defense, other healer picks ana so i go lucio to avoid two flex dps. My lucio is pretty rusty and my zen play isnt so swap back eventually and we run with two flex dps.
As theyre pushing around the final turn...
Dps: we need more healing than ana zen, zen can you switch to lucio or moira
Me: no, bc discord is the only reason things are dying, moira ana is too much healing, and i would stay on speed boost so that is less healing
Dps: ok well then switch to brig
I then facepalm so hard i concuss myself
Me: brig is a dps
Winston: thats where youre wrong friend
Me: pros only play brig as a dps in goats. If you guys want to swap to goats i will play brig. What we actually need is to stop running two flex supports and im not switching bc zen is my best healer by far
So the ana swaps to moira, good enough, and we stop them while im the only one on fire.
Fired this up for the first time in a while this weekend. Good games are so good but there are so many auto-lock DPS who are useless, and a bunch of my matches were deserted by people as soon as it looked like it was even possible we might not win. Such a frustrating game.
