Soldier 76 being someone's grumpy Dad

i think the other day i heard soldier76 and d.va in the prep phase say something along the lines of "....that's because you should drink more milk!" "ugh, yes dad!"

i don't know if that was present since day 1, but i definitely heard it the other day.

edit: wasn't d.va, and it wasn't about food either

Quoted


Soldier: 76: You need to slow down; think about your actions.
Tracer: Okay, Dad!

Yup a thread was needed, was about to make one myself. :thumbup: Here's a messy reply.

I bought OW just a few days ago (finally), because it was on sale and my friends were nagging (now we have a full team). Dunno why I haven't done so before, I've always thought it looked promising.

I love everyting about the gameplay. It's dynamic, balanced and seems very deep. Plus, the game is very polished and has been easy to get into.

Shows that balance and fun can go hand in hand to, as long as the design is good (which I've seen some people debate the possibility of).

Best moment so far was an insane overtime push with the payload (failed at the last minute though). Having a Lucio (aka spotify-man) on the team is wonderful.


I'll be grateful of any good online resources people know of (good youtubers, guides, stats, whatever). Been checking out r/overwatch and r/Competitiveoverwatch so far. :D


Speaking of, here's a random amazing clip from the latter sub. PoV 1: kenji GOD
PoV 2: EG Kayuun | duo with elkBOY


Lastly, I wonder if Soldier 76, a hero which is pretty much the FPS genre summed up, being really old is a subtle jab at FPSs being a bit stale...

The story is something I never expected to get but is probably one of my favourite things about the whole damn game! It's deep, intriguing, well-constructed, and covers quite a lot of different themes which I love. Plus they're doing a damn good job of telling it too; giving players little snippets here and there which are all seemingly obviously connected by invisible strands to something significantly larger and, potentially, darker, plus they drip feed it so that players who aren't interested can flat-out ignore it and players who are interested aren't just given a mountain of exposition in one big gulp so that they lose interest. Great pacing that I honestly don't think I've ever seen in a game before
The only criticisms I have towards the game are towards its lore and writing, funny enough. Whenever I watch any of the game's cinematics or listen to any of the characters speak, I often think about how comparably shallow the characters and narrative are compared to other games with an overarching story. While each character has a decent backstory and a consistent portrayal, I don't find them to be as intriguing as other nuanced and flawed video game characters. An appropriate comparison would be between OW's 22 heroes and the 9 mercenaries of TF2; the mercs have considerably greater depth in character compared to their Blizzard counterparts. The Spy is a chain-smoking assassin lady-killer who acts domineering and exasperated;

Spoiler Spoiler

yet he is secretly proud of his son, the Scout, for growing up independently without his care.
The Soldier and the Demoman were once good buddies until their superior instigated a war between them based on conjecture, blackmail and deceit. Tracer of OW is exclusively positive almost all of the time, with the most that she has ever suffered in terms of trauma or despair is a failed assassination prevention on a social leader and her greatest flaw perhaps being her unabashed idealism. That isn't to say that the characters of Overwatch are poorly written; it is that comparable games that I have seen tend to be superior to it with their narratives and actors.

I remember that one; one of the best plays I've seen made against AimbotCalvin, a highly-skilled professional player on the competitive scene. Overwatch was designed for these hair-raising moments.

He's essentially the Battlefield Medic.


I'll be grateful of any good online resources people know of (good youtubers, guides, stats, whatever). Been checking out r/overwatch and r/Competitiveoverwatch so far.
Just don't rely on Your Overwatch as a primary source; their information is quite basic and many of their assumptions about the meta have proven to be incorrect.

Meanwhile, turn to almost any of the big name professional players and their streams for competitive help, like Seagull, AimbotCalvin, Kephrii, Taimou, Harbleu, etc. Many are actually former competitive TF2 players!

I also recommend Ster's twitch channel; he's also a former TF2 content creator that is now serving as one of the representatives for OW's upcoming World Cup!

@SomeRandomGuy

character isn't everything, while overwatch might lack in depth of character for the characters, it makes up with character design(aesthetical), expressivity(they way they interact and the emotions of their animations*), plot, lore and backstories(again not for depth, as much as for creativty and how they're all connected to each other), and to be honest, we're playing a videogame here, they did the best they could do, you don't get depth of character in a multiplayer game, this ain't dark souls or metal gear, i think they actually did a better job than team fortress the guys at blizzard, at least with the theme they were going for...

*:i mean, if even i get that, surely more normal people must fall in love with OWs characters by expressivity left and right.

@iota-09

Yeah, that's essentially my opinion about the matter anyway. Overwatch plays so well that I can forgive most hiccups that the game has in terms of narrative. And besides, the characters are already solid enough for players of different personalities to fall in love with.

Still curious for who the player named "Symthic" is on Overwatch :huh:


OW takeover confirmed; Let's make it happen!

Thanks for the heads up!
*Logs out of Symthic in preparation*

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

>littlebird passanger, semi-auto frag rounds
>gunship OP

Meanwhile at DICE-headquarters during BF4's release:

I'm pretty sure there's a massive post-it on every desk "DON'T FUCKING TOUCH ANYTHING THAT IS ACTUALLY DOING WHAT IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE DOING"

UCAV:
"Hey guys remember how stupid prenerf mav was?"

"Lets add c4 to it."

The World Champion went to China once.

They called me a Gweilo.

So I kicked a big fucking hole in their wall and let all the Mongolians in.

just thought I'd share.


The thought of Assaults running out of ACE 23 rounds mid firefight, Engineers facing the rear of an unaware MBT with no rockets left, Recons unable to...Whatever the fuck they do. These are the things that keep me up at night ;(


About hunturk:
I don't know what's funnier, the video itself of the fact that an unlisted video has more views than most of your normal videos :P

...


You just live to hit people upside the noggin with a Math Bomb, don't you?

[context] Maybe it's the UK's overly aggressive porn filter at work. After all, it does have the word "monkey" in it and monkeys have been known to have sex so...


Previously, at DICE HQ:
"Ok guys, the password is "epic dream worlds"; everyone take a letter and do your best to turn it into into something random that we can put into a picture!"


I assume a functional game (BF4) also.

Aww!
*pinches cheeks*
So cute!


But but but

He's a Youtuber ;(

There's no way he doesn't know what he's talking about
