Overwatch (PC/PS4/XB1)



  • potato

    Away from my gaming PC while I'm back home for Christmas break. Tried playing Overwatch on my laptop... not the best.



  • Hmm. So I mainly play Overwatch with one friend of mine, meaning we've played the exact number of games this holiday season and had the same number of wins. He's gotten a total of 4 holiday skins, I've gotten 1. Overwatch, why do you hate me so?



  • In a not-so jolly update, my friend is currently at a count of 5 holiday skins, I'm still just at one.

    But to counter the thought that Overwatch hates me, they're giving away 5 free loot boxes for everyone that logs in. So nab those holiday goodies!



  • my first 3 of the 5 free boxes had legendary drops. One was a duplicate and the other was coins, but cool none the less. Thanks Blizzard!



  • All I want for Christmas is the Yeti skin



  • PS4 player here. Favs for me are Lucio and Bastion, their designs are so good! I love playing Zenyatta too since his orbs are easy enough to use and he can deal decent dmg.



  • I managed to get all the skins I wanted! It was a Christmas miracle. Only thing I haven't managed to get, that I kinda want are a couple of the emotes. Namely Mei and Zarya.

    I actually ended up buying the boyfriend some loot boxes for Christmas because he hadn't gotten one single holiday skin, and I felt bad that the Overwatch gods seemed to like me better. Luckily he got the Torbjorn, Mcree, Lucio and Sombre skins.



  • I got three Torbjorn skins and three Roadhog but no Winston so I just bought it :(



  • Hey everyone! I've been an Ally since day one, but haven't engaged with the community at all. Overwatch sounds like a great way to change that. I favor a more competitive focused play session, but fun casual games are great as well. I main as Ana and like to play Zenyatta, Zarya, Roadhog, Reaper, and Soldier 76 as well.

    Hit me up if you want to group up. I play on PC.

  • The Oasis map is out today! I'll be trying it out later on this evening (on PS4). Allies assemble!



  • @Inustar I was watching you play Zen/Zarya the other day, you were destroying some people! I was trying to jump in but it kept booting me. C'est la vie.



  • The Oasis map is so much fun! I've had some good quick play matches on it.



  • @SabotageTheTruth ha! Thanks. Too bad that it kept kicking you.

    That Oasis map is now my favourite. Granted that's probably due to it being new 😅



  • The Oasis map is fantastic!



  • I think mystery heroes is my favourite mode. I can go in and just have a good time, not really care about if we win and most importantly it just allows you to get more familiar with characters you're not used to.

    I'm not good with Hanzo but I'm a much improved player with him than I was before.

    Also, I was so happy to get all the skins I wanted in the New Year Event. Reinhardt, Winston and Dva!



  • @tokeeffe9 Absolutely agree, Mystery Heroes is my favorite as well. It forces me to use heroes I wouldn't normally and really lets me focus on different strategies. Plus, the added loot boxes for winning games in arcade mode helps a lot. I also love, love, love Charge! from the random brawls - there's something about a lot of Reinhardts duking it out that is glorious to be a part of.



  • @SabotageTheTruth I've only played that brawl a few times. I generally don't go near brawl but I have to admit I find it very funny hearing so many grunts in that game mode. It's hilarious.



  • @tokeeffe9 I don't play Overwatch as much as I did at launch (aside from December/early January where I got back into it pretty decently) but when I do it's pretty much exclusively Mystery Heroes. I like the random element of not knowing who you'll be, what your team is gonna be, what the enemy team is gonna be, and mostly just the fact that you have to work with what you're given.



  • Looks like Doomfist is incoming soon... or a giant robot. Or both!



  • New competitive season is out! Personal goal is finally hitting Diamond, which I'm pretty confident in reaching this time around.

    New buffs/nerfs hit and most of it is minimal besides... the Bastion buff. Woof, I'm sure they're going to tweak this more but they made his survivability go through the roof. He can heal through mostly anything now - including a few ultimates. I played 4 rounds before work and no matter the objective, each side had a Bastion at all times.
