Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Reaper is really effective, though I think I liked how his life gain worked before they changed it, used to be dead enemies would drop orbs you got health from. Now instead reaper just has a fixed life steal value to his damage.

Yeah don't let the players that destroy you with him fool you, Genji is much harder to be effective with than he looks. I'm still pretty awful with his throwing stars, but sometimes you need the mobility. You can deflect any projectile, this includes Mei, Zarya, and Hanzo ults (there is a small distance where it's a regular arrow before becoming the dragon). Exceptions are Orisa and Moira's orb, Sombra's translocator, and Reinhardt's flame shot. If you are playing on console, bind jump to L1 or something, you'll be a million times more effective than having jump on a face button.

Tracer is my preferred flanker, although she's not nearly as fun to play.

McCree is a lot of fun but there is question of effectiveness when you play as him, if you're not getting headshots at least every once in a while, odds are you can contribute far more damage to your team with another character. He's great at stopping runaway Tracers though.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

All good stuff to know, DK! Thanks.

I dropped time into Soldier-76, Tracer, Bastion, Hanzo, Junkrat, and Torbjorn last night.

Soldier-76: Seems pretty straight-forward, like a good intro character for more traditional FPS players. Aside from his Ult, his ability to boom is pretty negligible, but having a strong Offense while still being able to sprint and spot-heal is nice. I don't expect I'll use him much outside of like, 3v3/6v6 Elimination in the Arcade when my choices start to dwindle.

Tracer: I did surprisingly well with her! Got PotG twice in Deathmatch and had a blast baiting enemies into ambushes in QP. Her kit is so limited, but it makes for a lot of clutch escapes and full heals to finish off an enemy that would otherwise destroy me.

Bastion: I had a really hard time getting into the groove with him, which surprised me because most people have said he's easy mode for new players. It always seems like he's invincible and cuts you down in half a second when facing him, but when I was using him I couldn't really do anything in turret mode except die. I expect a ton of the meta around Bastion is learning good placement and when to beat a retreat, which usually means knowing the maps far better than I currently do. I had the most success with him in 4v4 Team Deathmatch when I could rely on someone to shield me.

Hanzo: I also did fairly well with him. He's not nearly as fast as I would like, but I kept getting headshots so I feel like I did okay. I'm still learning how to use his Ult effectively because it's really important to have good placement in narrow confines so people can't escape once they know it's coming. My favorite moments with him are when I know there's a sniper perch across the way and there's a Widowmaker just chilling waiting for my team and I can (if not headshot) at least harry them and give my team the cover they need to push forward. I also have a Skin I really like on Hanzo (Okami) so I expect I'll use him more often going forward.

Junkrat: This is the one I really feel like is easy mode. Opposed to the other explosive kit people, he's immune to his own damage so he's incredibly dangerous in close quarters. Proper use of his mine and his trap can lock down even wide lanes when you're alone waiting for your team to get to you, and his Ult is by far the most frustrating one I've encountered. I've taken to GTFO no matter where I am when I hear his Ult voice line and that's the only way I've managed to avoid a lot of stupid deaths. I also hit a couple PotGs with him in QP just because everything about him is close-quarters explosive. I don't think I'll use him much because I don't like his playstyle, but he's definitely a strong teammate to have and one to be wary of in opponents.

Torbjorn: First, I think I'll not use him much as, like Bastion, he's too slow and requires too much knowledge of the maps to be useful for a newbie. Second, I have the leather biker legendary skin for him and it makes me very happy even if I can't use him effectively at this point. And Third, I get annoyed when I throw Armor packs down and nobody picks them up, even when they're literally in the path that people are taking. It's free survivability! Why!

_____

Tonight I expect I'll dig into Torbjorn a bit more, followed by Widowmaker, D.Va, Reinhardt, and Roadhog if I have enough time. The soft goal has been to drop at least one hour with all Heroes to get a really good feel for them and how to use their kits / when to use them, but right now I think I only have an hour played with Mei, Zarya, and Moira.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

got the first sombra play of the game tonight that I've ever seen in all my playing tonight. her hacked highlight intro is cool, shows someone else as the receiver of POTG and then she hijacks it. The other person was my friend, pretty good reaction over the voice comms.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Bought Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate for the 3DS today. It's my introduction to Castlevania, never played it on the SNES as a kid. I hear mixed reviews... Did I do good buying it or should I have tried the old school versions first?

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I ended up playing for about an hour last night on Overwatch, with two friends. One who is brand new like me who is currently Maining Orisa and one who played a lot when it was new and likes to Main Lucio. When I play as Mei in that comp for any kind of defense, we are a pretty strong combo because Lucio helps us get around faster and heal, Orisa helps our survivability with shields and enemy movement, and I keep our flanks protected with Walls and provide the ice barrier to hide behind when an unavoidable Ult is coming our way.

We won each map where we were defending with that combo and I got PotG with Mei once. I would say it's definite that I'm gonna Main her at this point, but I haven't finished the deeper delve into each Hero yet.

I really only put in more time with Torbjorn last night, and then a couple rounds with D.Va, who is a lot of fun but not as offensive as I expected her to be based on my run-ins with her. She's good and tanky, though, and having essentially a "second life" opportunity has proven really useful when you're about to die and you can mech suit back up to keep fighting.

And I enjoy charging into the sky after Pharah and ulting Mercy to make them panic. I'm not especially useful when I do it, but it often gets them out of the sky and that's what I was going for anyway. Grounding Pharah and letting her duke it out on the ground is a satisfying feeling even if I don't get the killing blow.

I won't get to play with Orisa until I'm not playing with my friend since that's his go-to, but I think I'll have a good opportunity next week.

Oh, and I did get a couple rounds with Lucio when my other friend wanted to play D.Va, and he's a lot of fun, too. His wall-riding mechanic is touchy but it's neat when I can use it to hop up somewhere I otherwise normally couldn't get to, and I really enjoy being able to swap between speed and healing and amp up either one depending on need. It was the most fun when I was paired with a Moira and my passive healing aura wasn't needed as much, so I amped up our speed and we steamrolled the defense with fast, shielded, healing Roadhog and Reinhardt.

Right now I got it real bad, guys. The Overwatch plague is sweeping.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

D.Va is great at handling Pharah, especially now that she can use either of her weapons while flying toward her.

Also always fun to throw something in front of an ulting pharah so she blows herself up, like a winston bubble.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Yeah Iíve been on an Overwatch kick too lately. I got my PC account to level 25 and tried competitive, somehow got placed into Gold, and then proceeded to lose 10 straight and get demoted. Iíve only been playing healers so I like to think itís not entirely my fault, though when I saw I was placed in gold I was likeĒoh honey, noĒ. I figured myself a strong Bronze at best.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I pulled three PotG tonight, twice as Mei and once as Orisa. I also managed to get the Undying trophy with Mei (20 player killstreak) on one particularly brutal Escort Defend map. Having a friend to play with makes for much smoother matches, since communication actually happens and we can build a strong strategy.

I plan to hop into Competitive once I get level 25, just to see what it is like. I am expecting to be demolished.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

You won't. Their matching algorithms are really great. If you start winning too much, you'll get tougher opponents (and vice versa). Unless you really up your game or drop off, you'll win about 50% of the time.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Rocket League talk!

I took a couple days off while I was deep into Overwatch, but came back and started playing around in Ranked again, and it was pretty clear that a kind of level up happened while I was not playing. I was making much more intelligent plays, getting MVP about half the games we won, rotating a lot better and not getting in the way or whiffing as often. My aerial and wall game has improved a little, too.

That said, I'm focusing my efforts on Solo Standard, because 3v3 and 2v2 are subject to too many losses in a row due to getting matched against teams who actually play together, and even with my better skills I still can't carry a team that doesn't know anything about the game or just ball-chases the whole game. In everything but Solo Standard I'm Silver II. In Solo Standard I'm stuck in Bronze II and inching my way up. Last night I was in a good zone, and I won two games for every one I lost.

I even had a ridiculous game where I started off doing awful, even self-scoring twice. Just couldn't get the feel for the game. After two minutes we were 0-5 and someone called for Forfeit, but me and the other guy stuck it out and the one who asked for a forfeit was a good sport about it. I got one lucky shot first, then a second passed from high in the corner. Then an aerial goal off the wall, a good pass from a teammate for a fourth, and then a buzzer beater to tie the game and put us into overtime. I set up a nice pass that the team managed to lob in and we won the game with about 20 seconds into OT and it was one of the best feelings ever.

I am hopeful that I've turned the corner and I can start digging my way out of Bronze with the skill level up that I experienced.

_____

Overwatch talk!

This one's more fun. I'm definitely Main Mei at this point, having dropped half an hour at minimum into all Heroes, and can still manage a PotG with her occasionally (got two with Mei on Friday night, then one with Symmetra and one with Tracer. My new soft goal is to have all five Daily Highlights be PotG).

In Comp, I have the most time with Mei, Lucio, Sombra, Mercy, Orisa, and Reaper. In QP all of them are fairly high up there but they're mixed with a bunch of others just below that at about an hour played each.

I won half my placement matches and got placed into Gold, around 2200 rating. I don't know what the player spread looks like in this game, or where the skill ceiling is for most players, but the rounds I've played in Comp after placing Gold have been roughly my technical skill level, but I'm mostly being carried in the strategy department by the three or four person groups that I get paired with. I have their voice chat on so I can listen to what they say but have no idea what they mean when they say "tunnel 1" and "tunnel 2" and only the vaguest notion of placement and how to properly defend the various choke points. A large part of that, of course, is learning the maps a lot better, and then learning the lingo.

At any rate, it feels good to be in a situation where I am doing well. I am pretty sure, though, that when the new glow period wears off from their most recent sale and then from the Christmas rush of new players, I'll stop being quite as good since I'll go back to facing mostly people who are as serious as or more serious about the game than I am.

Edit: I forgot to mention that I had an insane run in QP with D.Va last night, where I was defending a point and kept getting rushed by three or more people while my team was off doing who the **** knows getting killed away from the defend point. I would rocket someone off a ledge and get back on land before my boost ran out, block a bunch of killer shots, drop their healer, Ult and dance around to clear the room and get back in my mech. Lose my mech but manage to kill Mercy and Mei out of mech and get back in it before Junkrat can down me. Lose it again when my team finally shows back up and I hop around, taking down a Roadhog and Hanzo solo before getting my mech back, drop another Ult to clear the room and manage to kill someone as they were running away before getting back into my mech. We lost the round because the rest of the team was doing a whole lot of nothing from what I could tell, but for a solid three minutes I was the unstoppable mech machine.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Double Post!

I got pretty tilted last night in RL because I got matched in Solo Standard with the same guy multiple times who was intentionally losing matches and calling us ungrateful when we wouldn't forfeit. So I got dumped into Bronze I and had to fight back up from that back into Bronze II instead of working into Bronze III like I thought I would last night. Basically every single game I had the highest score on my team, and often highest score on both teams even when we lost. I KNOW I don't belong in Bronze, but I'll be ****ed if I can ever get out of it at this rate.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

Assassin's Creed: Origins is amounting to be one of my favorite games of all time. So far I managed to 100% Siwa, Iment Nome, Lake Mareotis, and I completed most of the quests in Alexandria, though I don't like the fact that I'm practically forced to wait til Level 20 to do the rest.

So far my only gripe with this game is that, while you aren't blocked outright, some of the enemies and quests in this game simply can't be done at a lower level than the recommended unless you have the skill of a god. It's really disheartening when I can't even Assassinate someone with the hidden blade just because they're 3 levels above me, let alone deal a passable amount of damage.

That's another thing: Apparently the devs thought it would be a good idea to make it so Enemy Strength increases exponentially if you even dare to fight them at a lower level. You're Level 10 and your foe is Level 12? OK! You still get a fair fight. Your foe is Level 13? Nope! Too bad! That enemy is now suddenly able to 1-shot you and you are not allowed to deal even 1% of their HP in damage. What the actual hell? I haven't returned to Siwa yet, but I assume the same thing goes for foes that YOU outlevel. You're Level 10 and your foe is Level 2? 1-hit KO! Why are you still in the starting area?

I'm not gonna be continuing the main quest for a long time, though. Sidequests and new lands await me!

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I'm Bronze III Div IV in RL. So close to Silver I can taste it. I was on a pretty solid winning streak last night and was pressing my luck until I got tossed into a game with two Unranked Semi-Pros and we got ****ing plastered. I didn't drop out of Div IV, but I didn't want to risk another round with one or both of those guys so I quit. Prior to that game, I had played a 3v2 when one of our team disappeared basically the moment the match started, and between me and the other guy we took it 4 minutes into OT and finally lost. And another one where we ended up 6 minutes into OT 4-4 and I landed a good pass that both my teammates crowded into the goal against all three of the opponents. Risky move but it worked. We ended that game on good terms; everyone was just amazed at how well-matched we all were.

I have family in town and staying with me until Sunday so I won't get to play much 'til after that. Hoping that another few days off won't reverse the progress I've made thus far.

Re: Unofficially Official What are you Playing

I broke into Silver briefly in Solo Standard and got a run of bad luck games that dropped me right back down to Bronze III Div II. **** it, maybe I do belong in Bronze.
