To me it isn't the type of game that needs to updated with a hero every month or an event all the time. It isn't a moba or MMO so I would feel better if they would update in regards to balancing heroes and maps than giving us something new all the time.
The only things those 3 heroes have against a tank is the element of surprise and poke. Tracer, when played well, is the most annoying thing to a tank. Reaper on the other hand is the Tank Buster. I don't think those heroes can do that as quickly as reaper can. I do like the idea of his wraith form giving him the ability to fly and move to better positioning. His teleport is good for that but if its out in the open youre spotted right away and if the opposing team has a sniper youre fucked.
EDIT: Read that post regarding balancing and basically makes what I said at the beginning moot lol. I agree with the poster, there really hasnt been radical changes and some changes that make little to no sense. Pharmercy has been cancer to the game

It is. Overwatch is competing with MOBA type games. Heroes are the main focus. It isn't like Counter-Strike where everyone starts off in pretty much the same spot. Mercy is totally different to Winston in the same ways a Warrior is different to a Priest.

He apparently murdered the "Scourge" Doomfist and took his place, and Talon was okay with it cause he's better at the job.


The one thing that has me concerned about all this is the whole "Conflict makes humanity stronger" and wanting to start a world war bit, that's really weak writing and motivation without going into the 'how'.

Eh, I think it's pretty standard Social Darwinism/Blood Knight villain.

Its pretty easy on the "How" that would make people stronger if you look at it from that PoV.
War creates strength, enables power, weeds out the weak, do whats best for your side no matter the magnitude of how "bad" that decision is. I would assume thats the way he looks at it

I guess I'm just weird because I usually see extended war as mismanagement of strength rather than a way to develop strength.

Depends on if you look at it pertaining to real life or fictional. Letting real world views influence the views in game obviously affects that. When seeing war as a positive, you need to step outside the box when creating a fictional world.It's easy to see war as bad and wanting war as being something horrific, nobody really wants to be the bad guy. So when you see his motives for it remove your moral for a bit and then you can get it.
@mertico, I still feel that the better balancing would be the way to go instead of the constant release of new heroes. I get what you are saying and yea something new is always exciting but I'd prefer more consistent updates regarding balance, just me tho

So does doomfist's right click do more damage when charged, or does that only determine its range?

I'm having a hard time controlling his E ability, too.

Also, I like how they describe Reaper as a Talon leader as opposed to a common mercenary working for them. Nice to see they can't even remember their own lore when it's practically non-existent already.

I just realized the flashback battle in the video is the same one the little kid was describing in the original Overwatch cinematic.

Reminds me of how Reaper was supposedly a Mercenary for decades before Uprising came along and revealed that it hasn't even been 7 years since he went full Edgelord.

Can be handwaved by saying he used "Reaper" as a blackwatch alias when doing not strictly legal things, but yeah, it's still pretty lame they can't keep the timeline right.

I love how Reaper is in a Masque of The Red Death outfit

And it turns out He and Doomfist know exactly what Sombra did in Russia, Akande likes her ambition and prefers Volskaya alive anyway

They need to put Doomfist out and start giving info on the next hero. They are too slow with heroes releases and the game needs more heroes.

Also there might be custom guns coming.

Doomfist is out next week and don't expect a new hero for another 3-4 months which will likely be announced at Blizzcon.
What do ya mean by custom guns?
