    Aww, that's too bad because it has over 7 million active players right now. Which makes it one of the most successful arena shooters of all time.

    I have been playing entirely too much myself. It's not very "MOBA"-ish like say Battleborn or Paragon. It's a shooter with loadouts and special attacks. That's pretty much the extent of the MOBA style, the rest of the gameplay is no different than TF2 or any other objective game.

    ^It's no arena shooter either. Btw. I hated TF2 and most games like it. I don't want a rock paper scissors mechanic in an online shooter. I don't have a problem with Battlefield like classes but when the movement options differ from char to char I am out asap.

    This is the best thing about the game:

    It's definitely not exactly an arena shooter, but as someone who could never get into TF2 because I thought it was boring and they also made it like "Play to Win" by adding all the extra weapons for earning achievements it only got worse I will say I enjoy Overwatch much more.

    It's not everyone's bag, though.

    I saw a review of this last night. It seems to have a very UT feel. That being said I also heard it's quite expensive to buy.

    That's better than the price point here; which I believe is outrageous... or nearly so.

    East coast. North.

    We get slammed here on computer game pricing (Steam excluded generally) and geoblocked on some cheaper deals (GoG still works).

    My favorite part of Overwatch is seeing the good ol "i hate this new popular game *goes back to clique*" cycle happen again in the "competitive FPS" communities with their pro-dorky vocal minorities. kinda like how a medic that can't concussion boost in tf2 ruined gaming forever in 2007

    The play style difference between characters is more extreme than other class based shooters I've played. So if you play Pharah it feels just like an arena shooter, and if you play Soldier 76 it feels like Call of Duty. Then there's characters that are completely unlike anything you've played Like Mei and Genji. Some characters rely on accuracy like the OP McCree, and some you don't need aim at all like Winston and Symmetra. You can't really say the game isn't this or that because it has a little of everything.

    I like to turn up the Dark DnB channel on Di.fm and play in your face with D.Va.

    Forget that. You need to keep playing Mercy so you can be my pocket healer like last night. That was fun.:)

    Get a VPN account. I use it all the time for all sorts of things that are geo blocked.

    The problem playing Mercy right now (at least where I'm at with level 32), is that most players don't play in a way that can be supported. You have to stock yourself between the enemy and the healer, and retreat back to the healer. But everyone seems to think it's TDM.

    So when this happen I prefer to go D.Va because she can solo almost everyone except McCree and Mei.

    Trying to play as Mercy almost always means finding places you can be out of the way and still overcharge people. Especially when you have a Reinhardt advancing with his barrier up.

    Yes the last thing we need is pro-dorky minorities.
