Hello, and welcome to the Overwatch discussion thread! Here, you and other PMC members can talk about strategies, vent about the about characters being nerfed, or just share your experiences with the game. You can also vote on questions each week and suggest a guide to be made about specific characters. The only one I have right now is the guide for Sombra, but watch out for the guides on D. Va, Ana, Reinhardt, and Symmetra very soon.

Here's a question for you: Which of Moira's emotes is your favorite? Be sure to share why in the comments below!

Agreed. I've had a shaky relationship with Mercy, and things aren't like what they used to be. I thought maybe it was time for me to play other heroes, maybe get a new perspective. I still love her, but I don't think I can main her anymore. It's sad, but it has to happen.

I'm sorry Angela Ziegler, but we're breaking up. XD

Okay, I'm going to change the poll to which Halloween skin is the best once I have a chance to get into the event. Also, McCree won the poll, and it seems we got more than we could have even asked for him. Van Helsing McCree is amazing.

So... The new skins have been released. Mei is now the monster she is, Zenyatta has turned from harmony to chaos, and Symmetra's a dragon. What an interesting bunch we have here.

Okay, I finally updated the poll. HanzoXMcCree seems to be the most popular ship, with PharahXMercy in a close second. The new poll is which character(s) should get a new skin for the Halloween event. Just make sure if you have a second option, put it down in the comments since you can't have multiple votes now.

Have good aim, use healing pod for more then just healing yourself (for example, when you and your team is stuck in a Zarya ult), aim rockets on the ground for splash damage

Yeah, I've been trying to work with Ana main I play with to create what is called the "Budget Transcendence", which is basically a healing grenade and healing pod dropped at the same time. I'm also working on rocket jumping and making the most of my Nano-Boosts. The aim bit is a work in progress, but I was able to hit a Pharah with a Helix Rocket. Don't know if that good or not though. Still going to run a competitive Sombra alongside Soldier, so I have a fallback if this doesn't work.

I just realized with the new Mercy buff, Mercy is actually a viable candidate for a Nano-Boost. This is going to be fun.

So, we finally have details on the new abilities D.VA and Mercy will have.

D.VA got heavily buffed. She now has a new "E" ability, which allows her to launch a volley of mini missiles that do a tiny bit of splash damage that are fired for about 2-4 seconds. She can also use her main guns/missiles while using her "Shift" boost ability. Only downside, her defence matrix time is halfed. Overall, she's gotten more powerful offensive wise, but her defensive capabilities have taken a hit to balance. Overall, I'm fine with it.

Then there's Mercy...wow. I think she got heavily nerfed (Even harder then Roadhog to be honest.) Her power to resurrect people is no longer her ult. It is now her "E" ability. It can res 1 person, and has a 30 second cooldown. Her brand new ult is called "Valkyrie", which allows her to fly freely for 20 seconds, and the cooldown of her res is shortened to 10 seconds for the duration of her ult. Overall, I find that her res is now an ability instead of an ult is interesting, but man, her capabilities have been decimated. She can no longer multi-res, instead focusing on single target ressing, and while her ult will allow her to be harder to kill, I don't she many uses for it, except for being a harder target to hit. Main waifu has taken a severe blow, and I get the feeling she'll no longer by the No. 1 most played hero in competitive very quickly. So enjoy being able to multi-res while it lasts, people.

I'll need to test these 2 characters myself before final opinions on the changes, but I'm very worried about Mercy.

(In other news, I got every single event skin for the Summer Games, all the emotes, all the highlight intros, and even all the sprays. Life is good)

Been playing some Roadhog, since people won't be quiet about how he's "unplayable because of all the nerfs"

I don't see it, his gun still does good damage lol

That's not my issue, at least. I just find him unwieldy, or any tank for that matter. Let's go through my thoughts when I play a tank:
Uh...
What?

Where?
Where am I?
Oh.
Ugh...
Why me!?

Yeah, I'm completely hopeless.

XD I got a Play of the Game just for hunting down a Mercy and the Hanzo she was pocketing. After it finished playing, I look in the chat and see: "HanzoXMercy shall never be a thing. You did well Soldier." I almost died of laughter.

Actually, how many characters are shipped with Mercy? There's 4 I can remember, but there's probably more. But to be honest, I like GenjiXMercy best. So cute.





But I'm a McCreeXHanzo shipper so what do I know about ships?

guys send help

I was playing Competitive Lucio Ball, and after 2 matches, I went to search for another match. The game experienced an error, and now the game is constantly searching for a game, while not actually searching. I can't join any games, and I'm stuck on the main menu

Blizzard fix your broken game ;n;

My brother and I are working on a new kind of hide and seek game mode. The catch is that the hunter is blindfolded and must use sound to detect enemies. My first attempts mainly involved me walking off cliffs. XD

I would imagine having the hiding team be nothing but Sombra, and letting her invisible cooldown not exist would work better. Just hide as Sombra, and mash Shift to turn invisible.

Meh could be worse. You could go Zenyatta and have no footsteps at all. I decided to limit it to more of the noisier characters like McCree. Not too loud, but not quiet either. But if you really want a challenge, you can always go Reinhardt.
