I'm sitting here on top of the Moira/Reaper trashpile like a very lonely dragon
Hmm. I like the antagonistic gamer versus hacker implications of D.va/Sombra... and I’m a pharmacy tech so shipping PharMercy is obvious.
That's like -- fucking awesome
NEW SUPPORT CHARACTER
Oh shit, they look so rad!
What kind of gun is that? It looks like some kind of grenade launcher, maybe?
Though it's common knowledge now, it's a combo automatic carbine that fires 3-round bursts, and healing grenade launcher.
In the real world, 3-round bursts have been shown to be optimal for aimed fire from au automatic weapon, and it works well in game too. Accuracy falls away after 3 and it wastes ammo though in OW the latter is less important, with infinite reloads.
Longer bursts of automatic fire are suppressive fire, intended on area denial and keeping the enemy's heads down, but Overwatch doesn't use that much. Area denial is done with other abilities .
The new Archives event feels a bit short? In terms of pure time, it probably isn't--the Uprising event is still the longest, I think--but it's just got fewer waves, I think. It also looks like they didn't add on anything extra to the map, like they did Rialto; Havana feels like it's definitely an escort map, but it also feels like we got to see the map and nothing extra.
That said, it's still pretty fun, adds a bit more to the lore, and is a really good place to practice Baptiste. And I'm hoping Sojourn ends up playable at some point in the future.
Baptiste is a lot of fun, but runs into the same problem Ana does with jumpy teammates because OH MY GOD STOP JUMPING LET ME SHOOT YOU. His immortality field is a great panic button to hit though; if people actually get in it, it can help turn the tide for the few seconds it's up.
It feels like his ult is a little too short or a little too small? In terms of damage boost and placement, it feels good, but it always feels like it ends a second or two too soon when I use it.
So did you guys hear you can find Sombra's self-insert Twelfth Night femslash fic open on one of the Talon computers?
SOMBRA ALSO WLW CONFIRMED?
"Writes self-insert femslash fanfiction at work and leaves it open on the computer for the cops to find" would be the best possible way to confirm what we all already knew in our hearts.
We're about four steps closer to my favorite overwatch fic of all time being canon now.
there's a new overwatch guy
I don't even go here but im spooked
Hm. So they could do better with the new Overwatch guy but I like old men and he's hot at least.
I just wish he wasn't promoted in such a way that everyone and their grandma is tweeting about how 'scary and crazy' he is
