Overwatch: Save The Date

Post#1 » Wed May 11, 2016 10:22 pm

Seemed like a good number of fockers tried it out and seemed interested, though not sure how many may actually purchase. That said, I propose that we tentatively plan to get together officially on Friday, May 27th (the first Friday after release) to play some games as a group. We can have up to 6 people playing together without being left out, and if we actually ended up with more than 6, we might be able to do so exhibition skirmishes against one another. Anyway, that's the first date I came up with. Based on people's availability, we could try and schedule for another time.

I did buy the game and want to get playing with some peeps. I'm out of the town the holiday though so won't be on until the following week.

BTW, I was pretty horrible the little bit I played over beta weekend.

I bought it and played pre-release. I was really fucking good ;)

Cant wait to play. 27th probably wont happen for me though as I will just be coming back from my golf trip that day. But.... Look out the rest of that weekend. I will be on!

He was pretty bad ass.

But i did real well with the dwarf dood, roadhog, the other tank chick with the bunny was fun as hell too. Even had fun with the roller blade healer.

The archer dood is OP as well with his ultimate. should be able to get a 5 kill everytime its up.

Needless to say.. ready to play with some fockers again. This should bring us some good laughs no doubt.

Not that it's a tremendous change from what was expected, but for those following along, Overwatch will actually launch in the US on Monday evening (May 23rd) at 7:00pm Eastern.

So essentially, you get to play an evening early--or it'll be live an evening early but will need those 24 hours to get servers stable. Either way, you'll be able to attempt to play Monday evening.

Any Badges sitings?

It looks like most of the Rocket League crew is wanting to jump into OW too. I played a little in closed beta, I wasn't super impressed (and I'm too damn old to be any good at an FPS), but if everyone is going to play, I guess I'll give it a go.

Some Overwatch myths have been verified.

Two Lucios will not heal you faster than one, but two Mercys will.
Reinhardt can pin D.Va's mech while it's self-destructing, moving it away from teammates. How selfless!
If you put one of Torbjorn's turrets over a health pack, it will use it to heal.
Reinhardt's charge can be stopped short by one of Junkrat's traps.
D.Va can block Hanzo's ultimate if she blocks the arrow with her shield before it turns into its Dragonstrike form.
D.Va can kill an opponent by calling in her mech while next to them.
