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.

I like how this post is filled with staff and the only normal member's post I find is complaining it's an Overwatch thread on a Minecraft fansite lmao
Overwatch is fabulous enough to exist here too

Should I make a poll asking what everyone's favorite Overwatch ship is? I mean, I kinda wanna take down the Doomfist poll. Leopard won, by the way. So, should I do it or not?

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.

I'm gonna change the forum question (finally) and I want to see what everyone's favorite Doomfist skin is. And apparently the majority of you are more interested on how Doomfist plays than what he can bring to the table in terms of story.

All people who are excited for Doomfist the savior of the meta (/s).

Because the meta progression is totally not being killed by people stopping innovation by discouraging off-meta picks.

Talon is finally getting at least some depth, it was such a boring organization before. It's still not amazingly interesting, but it's better.

So I read the Masquerade comic, and I must say, I'm very pleased. Doomfist is such a well-designed character, especially when it comes to story. The casino scene gave me flashbacks to Casino Royale from James Bond, one of my personal favorite movies. We got some insight on Talon and we see that they have financial issues and tensions between members.

Also, a lot of people were saying that they wanted some of the costumes in the comic in the game, but they seem a bit too gaudy for my taste. Maybe something from the casino in Monaco, but it probably doesn't fit the situation.

Another small detail, Doomfist accuses Reaper of being sentimental towards Ana and Jack Morrison. His response? A very questionable "no" that hints at some possible guilt.

I think I've made an interesting discovery. After looking at all the evidence, I think Sombra's EMP isn't really an EMP at all. Instead, it's a more complex hacking command that takes a while to load and prepare. The reason I say this is that with the EMP, all electronics would be toast, including many of the technology that helps many of the other heroes function, most notably Genji or any Omnic. If it truly was an EMP, Genji's life support systems would be fried and the Omnics would shut down completely. EMP is probably just a code name for the command she uses and not an actual EMP.


Why was I thinking about this...

Played him, watched good people play him. Can only say that he's too strong in his current state.

He has an insanely powerful attack capable of killing a lot of heroes in one hit (like Rein) but it has almost no risk to it. Rein's charge is decently balanced because you give up your position within your team to charge into the enemy team to maybe get a kill. Doomfist however, has such insane mobility with low cool downs that he can charge in and escape pretty easily.

My guess is that they're going to reduce the damage done by the charge and/or increase the cool downs on all his abilities.

They've already decreased the distance of his Rocket Punch. Other then that, looking at footage, I do think his cooldowns need to be increased a little bit, and also make his shotgun gloves do less damage. The amount of damage his shotgun blasts do looks insane.

Plus, I do think he gets heavily countered by Pharah, a character that is already quite popular in the meta, so I do think he's a little too powerful, but not OP like people say. I'll have to actually play as him once he releases, but that's my take on it.

Thought I'd talk on Doomfist a bit. I did my research, and this guy has an interesting story behind him. Apparently, he straight-up killed the second Doomfist just to gain his place on Talon. Guess that's one way to show the student has become the master. I also like the character that Blizzard gave to him. Not only is he strong, but possesses great intelligence and a silver tongue. He seems to be the villain that Talon needed (even though some people claim he's an anti-hero when he clearly isn't.) as his welcoming demeanor and warrior spirit make him seem like an unquestionable leader.

I also came across the unfinished dialogue between Doomfist and Hanzo. From it, it's clear that Talon really wishes to recruit him, but if it's anything like Widowmaker's interaction, I think Talon's out of luck. Haven't found an interaction with any other Talon members yet, but I'm sure we'll get them soon enough. Can't wait to hear Sombra mess around with him.

Gonna have to question Talon wanting Hanzo.

So, they want Talon to have 3 DPS and 2 Defense snipers. No tanks or healers...

It's been a while since I posted on this thread. I suppose I'll give my perspective on Doomfist, too.

Doomfist brings a whole new play-style to the game. He has a nearly guaranteed one-shot kill mechanic, and his ultimate is extremely strong. Meteor Strike is a very unique ultimate in the game, as it can't be countered (as far as I know). The AoE is a decent size, and anyone caught in the center is killed upon impact. His primary fire is weak, but his three ability kit makes for some incredible combos. As far as personality goes, his attitude exudes exactly the kind of manner you would expect from Talon's head honcho-- confident, strong-willed, and witty. I'd love to see more of the lore, especially in the form of a new Animatic. We haven't had one of those since Sombra's release at Blizzcon last November.

Anyway, that brings me to the end of my piece. Also, feel free to hit me up on battle.net. My BattleTag is Mari#12741.

Probably should do a new poll. We had a four-way tie between the McCree Buff, the new map, the golden loot box, and the Roadhog changes. The new poll will be something regarding Doomfist, but not sure what right now. But whatever it is, be sure to comment about it in the thread.

After playing several rounds of No Limits against full teams of Doomfists in PTR, I found out that I don't hate Sombra. I just haven't been playing her aggressively enough.

Ugh, so many Youtubers have gone on about how OP Sombra is, now I have some Sombra main wannabes with an hour of experience trying to "solo-carry" their team, or so they claim. Can't they just leave the hacking to professionals like me? I'm all for learning new heroes, but I don't expect to be a god when I've only played with a hero for one day.

Literally all I need is a Winston legendary skin, then I will have at least 1 legendary skins for all the characters lol

Because on the Gaming Forums, you can talk about games other then Minecraft. The rules are being followed here.

And also, if you have nothing to say about the game, don't bother trying to start flame wars. Saying you hate something in a forum talking about that something is just asking for trouble.
