    I don't know how this does not have its own thread yet. Anyone else plays?

    My favorite characters are:
    -Winston
    -Reinhardt
    -Soldier 76
    -Genji
    -Hanzo
    -Mercy

    I play from time to time. It is a fun game. It reminds me of LoL and TF2.

    I think this is the only thread, don't worry.

    Planning to receive the game on Monday (the delivery to my local agency takes way too long so I'm getting it on Monday when I ordered it 1.5 weeks ago)

    A lot of my friends are planning on getting it too, and some have played it already and really enjoyed it (still are) so I'm looking forward to having lots of fun with it! I can see the TF2 comparisons, but I like to consider them different games due to how largely diverse Overwatch is and how it's more dependant on teamwork than TF2 due to the variety of characters.

    I guarantee you will enjoy it :D. I had a blast playing with my friends. You can use mics in OW which helps with team communication. The games can get really hectic, especially when it comes down to the wire with ~1 minute left. Expect a rough transition during the early levels, but it will get better once you start leveling up.

    There will be games where you get utterly rekt and go on long losing streaks. Don't get yourself too caught up and set some rules. I have a rule of thumb where if I lose more than 4, I am done for the day.

    Unless the title of the thread does not contain the word overwatch, yeah, there's none.

    Of course it's similar to TF2, but what game isn't similar to another these days?

    Anyway, it's really fun. If you do lose two games or more in a row, just leave that one and rejoin another with fresh teammates, if you are playing with randoms. The game is much more fun if you play with friends.

    Yeah yeah of course, it's just that this particular comparison has been made lately, you don't see that many class-based teamwork-reliant FPS games, so I wanted to address the talks about it.

    I'll be sure to play with friends, some of them already have the game so I know who my go-to people are to get started.

    Yes, but my PC is still pretty far away from being good enough to carry it out well enough. When the default graphics setting is low you know something is up.

    Oh, it meets the RECOMMENDED requirements, that's why I bought it! I wouldn't buy it if I wasn't 100% sure, so I was very surprised I had issues. So, I need to upgrade the shit out of my PC :p

    Oh, my bad :faceplam: I thought your PC met the minimum standards :faceplam:Have you tried googling Overwatch video issues regarding your video card? New games tend to have problems with certain video cards

    Yes. I'm updating for relatively gaming purposes, but not as much so as to be able to play, let's say, Battlefield 1 (because my PC would die instantly :lmao: )

    Only difference is, I'm more responsible on my PC than I'll ever be on a Car :p

    Back to Overwatch, seems like people are being nerfed already from what I hear.
