 Illios an odd one cause the flag for one of the map is within a batch of buildings for both teams which in turn protect the enemy from attacks right off.

CTF wasn't in ilios. It was in Lijiang Tower. Each CTF map was one of the stages of Lijiang.

Illios is the bright Mediterranean one with all the white buildings and that lighthouse with the giant hole next to it which is a favorite spot for roadhogs to drag and drop people in it.

No I actually mean Illios,

Nepal, Illios, AND oasis joined Lijiang tower as Capture the flag maps in this new patch...

I can only believe the odd reason for some of the maps having odd placement for the flag is due to there is probably a minimal distance rule

Are we talking about the Chinese New Year patch or something that just happened? Because I distinctly remember the New Year CTF was only on Lijiang.

Overwatch - A fun game for mike users, not so much for non mike users.

I swear to god I don't think my "teammates" know what a payload is, hence me not playing so much.

So I decided to join the Competitive play for this season. That shit's intense.

First round I get into, guy on the mic is demanding this, demanding that. "We need more tanks." "You, take Reinhart." I've never played Reinhart much, and I'm not good at it. I'm hoping I did well during our rounds, we lost but only by one control point.

Next map it's "There's a pharah, someone switch characters to answer the pharah." Um, I'm not exactly sure which characters are best against pharah. I know which ones suck against her if she's flying, like Winston, Junkrat, Symmetra, other short range people. I took Dva which seemed sufficient enough, since I've been able to take out pharahs with dva before.

The competitive seems to require a much more intimate knowledge of which characters work best against which other characters, which characters work best in a certain map or situation, and the ability to play several characters well. Stuff I'm not so good at.

Also, I tried to take out a torb turret while dva, flew right at him with my jets and threw up my shield, then started shooting at it, and died. So, I must be taking out these turrets wrong.

DVa is pretty good against Pharah.  So are Soldier, McCree or anyone with good long range.

Toblerone's turrets are usually bad against Pharah, Soldier, Zarya, or other people with high damage output like Junkrat if you can get to it.  Dva can be ok, but she is going to take damage since she doesn't do a lot of DPS.  Her matrix is only good against it if someone else is shooting it.

I managed to get myself back up to platinum pretty damn fast this season. O:

This is like me in placement... Well minus the platinum rank... i think I'd be rank bronze.

 

 

The last competition match I played they ended up booting me off the team because I wasn't as good as some 60-90 level motherfuckers with my level 30. Didn't help that I made a first impression by accidentally walking off a ledge in Illios right after I walked off the shuttle (made me look like a noob buy I very rarely fall to my death). And "CrazyPee"? What mature people I was playing against. Also, one of them sounded like they were 10 years old.

folks also believe: It takes into consideration what you were last season (last season I was high silver, 100 away from being gold) and how LOW you were (a series of bad matches kicked me down to 1543, thus I only play competitive overwatch between 12pm and 10pm as those are the times I get most cooperative teammates while after that it goes down hill...) This works with the whole 'newer accounts would get placed higher than ones that been around, as newer accounts have nothing to compare them to last season or even only did one season...

Yeah, I got diamond last season and this season it placed me in high plat-- within 100 points of diamond. I can confirm that the placement matches are pretty much just a tradition rather than something that achieves a purpose.

8 losses, 1 win, and 1 tie.... 1120, and in bronze. No surprise there. I need to work on my game harder.

The one win however, had a great team, was playing one of my mains, dva, and seriously owned. We had lost the checkpoint in Lijiang Market, and I threw the exploding meka into the point to see if I couldn't clear it. We ended up taking the point after this.
 

Don't mind my cell phone crappy filming resolution. Or the lack of sound due to me playing with a headset.

Genji mains seem to be some of the dumbest people in this game. It almost makes me want to not focus on them when I play a healing role. I'm not flying into the fray against a Symmetra, ROADHOG, and 76 because another braindead Genji thinks they're Ryu Hayabusa taking on a tank, offense, and an auto aim character by themselves. But then they cry when they don't get their healing. I'll focus on my other teammates that don't think this is Ninja Gaiden. 

Like Mercy's tight Swiss ass is really gonna last lunging into that scrap. lol

Thought Mercy was German for some reason.

That moment when you play so much overwatch you dream in overwatch. And also dream about mercy and her "tight swiss ass". *cough*

I have some more highlight vids I have to edit and upload, figured out how to get sound on them. Maybe I should start a OW channel.... 

until then, Hanzo throwing serious shade:

I personally hate fighting against Tracer mains with a passion. I feel like I'm going to have a freaking mental breakdown or a seizure trying to figure out where the hell she is because she's ridiculously fast. Not to mention she can melt you and reloads in less than a second. I also notice that people still refuse to play the role of support, so I find myself playing as Ana a lot more now.

That video made me actually, physically cringe. I've never seen a strawman beaten so mercilessly- the comic, ironically, made less of a deal about Tracer being gay than this video or the fanbase in general did. But hey, it's "comedy" so it's untouchable by criticism, right?

Yeah. I just wanted a tank that had range and wasn't crazy gimmicky. I can't stand any of then but Reinhardt and Orisa. Reinhardt I don't even really like.

So a week ago I went to an anime convention. Few years ago when I went, the game room was this tiny living-room-sized room... this year, the size of a flipping football field.

0318171512b.jpg

Blurry, I know. But 8 consoles dedicated to OW, and 100 or so computers that you could log into your own account with. Spent half my time there.

Also, I saw a bunch of great OW cosplayers as well. Especially this guy:

0318172139a.jpg0318172139d.jpg

EVA foam and plastidip.... and a hell of a cosplay. Here's his photos of his progress, if you're interested.

Also this McCree...

And "Daft Monk", Genji and Zeniyatta dressed like Daft Punk.

Also, an unrelated video. This is how I play if I'm playing Ana.... I can't hit shit! Also Pharah is cute in this one.

I was playing as Pharah and one of my team mates told me to use the knockback attack more. I main her sometimes but forgot about it. Mostly because we were in Illios lighthouse. I ended up getting about 4 enviro kills that round and an achievement.

As for competitve, it sucks losing more than you're winning. I was at a lame 1100, then I went up to 1300, now I'm just shy of 1100 again. I'll be lucky if I hit silver. Only won 1 round this time. The Illios one was one we lost, barely, and I beat myself up for not switching back to D.Va (or maybe rein) when we didn't have enough tanks pressing the control point when they had it. And a tank can't do shit if he's up against 5+ enemy on a point and his team won't back him the eff up. Another time I was playing DVa on Eichenwalde, our team coudn't even get past the first choke to the payload... might have been partially my fault. Last few seconds I finally got my ult and flew over to the choke, since the other team had all their characters under the arch, and tried to drop a steaming exploding mech on them, but too little too late. I will have to train with Rein more because it's obvious more teams need him.

Also, I was flying around as pharah with an ult, and saw an enemy winston do his ult... so I activated mine and just rained missiles on him... and nothing. I didn't know winston's ult made him invincible. Still, by the time his ended, he had 1/5th health, so 2 rockets later and he was gone.

Anyone see this video before?

Agree with Bastion, Dva, definitely Junkrat, Lucio could honestly be any dubstep or EDM, McCree but not that mix of it, Mei should have been Cold as Ice by Foreigner, I like Mercy's but it sounds like Christian contemporary, Reaper's is best, 76, Symmetra...really?, Torb should have been Alestorm, and Zarya maybe Moskau by Dschinghis Khan or the Soviet Anthem.

Or, they can use proper characters that can destroy the turrets. During one of the above matches on Illios, I kept raining down rockets on his turret from the air. Didn't help him that he kept sticking it the same fucking place every time, making it easy for me to check for it. I'm not even sure the turret can look straight up at a pharah.

within range, yes, they can actually shoot straight up, and in rare glitch moments: Shoot right below them

the odd thing is, the way its designed it SHOULDNT shoot straight up, not even TF2's engineer's sentry shoot straight up (hence why you can kill that sentry by just standing on top of it....)

The whole point of Torbjorn having legs is so he can cover blind spots and change positions when he needs to. He do da pew pew good.

If you can't deal with Torbs with any team comp, either that Torb is VERY smart with a highly supportive team or your team is complete ass.

That's how it is most of the time. My team comp is always so bad, that every single alert is there on the side telling us how shit it is. It's pretty much just gg from the start.

Also folks believe there will be a PvE event like the junkenstine, which the comic shows it will be of Rein, Torb, Tracer, and Mercy.

Skin wise, theres a chance we'll be getting folks in their Overwatch days than current freelance

Yeah I saw that bug, I had to try it once and it was hilarious.

Yeah, doesn't bother me though, the game was never meant for big AI-filled battles, it was meant to be PvP. Sometimes there's bound to be bugs in co-op events.

the fact they can set up a PvE system for events is good though, as they improved further from instead of "defend this point" from junkenstine, to "have a multipart system" for this one.

I just hope that maybe one day they will allow us to have events be an arcade thing we can choose...cause I miss lucio ball still and now with us having a more vertical push, imaging the games with that.
