        Early Overwatch was incredibly fun, when people were still playing it to actually have fun instead of to increase their MMR by two points before the end of the month.

      Neither of these is true.
      Wetness is a property of being covered in water. Water itself isn't wet, for something to be wet its default state needs to be dry.
      Sky is not in fact blue, it's clear, the blue you see during the day is refraction of sunlight, it can be red, orange, purple, pink, black at night, or grey during clouds.

        From webster: wet: [adjective] consisting of, containing, covered with, or soaked with liquid (such as water).

        Wetness is property of liquids. There are plenty of liquids that aren't water and one would agree they certainly qualify as wet.

      Blizzard was absolutely mindbroken when they lost out on DotA. No really, they told the map creator 'icefrog' to get lost when he proposed to them an actual game be made and they laughed him out the door. So he went to Valve instead.

      Since then they have completely destroyed themselves chasing the lightning in the bottle that was Starcraft Brood War and Dota. Think about it long enough and you'll realize that every single problem Blizzard games have stem from this forced esports bullshit.

      The game would be fine if they weren't so gnomish at monetizing it.

      OW1 was an exploitative fucking game but nobody could say it wasn't fair with its pricing; Pay 60 bucks and you get all the heroes and most of their best skins. Theoretically you could get everything for free, because you got enough currency to get a steady stream of crates

      You can't do that anymore and the game sucks without it, so why play the game?

        Yep. The only thing holding OW1 together the last two years were events and event cosmetics. OWL was dying, blizzard was completely silent about OW2, barely any balance patches, etc. Barely anyone played outside the events. Now that you can’t get any skins for free save some shit ones, what’s the point? Balance is still shit, queues are horrible, blizzard remains silent about their intentions, PvE pushed back. Their main audience are collectors then they shit them out making the game F2P. Immediately killed their audience

      Simultaneously trying to force a competitive meta while all of the maps are either 2CP attack/defend or KotH. The better question isnt why people are leaving, its who should blizzard be appealing to. The most active portion of the playerbase fucks around in meme gamemodes and custom maps because blizzard cant make a playable game out of their game platform.

      By large part Balance, Roadhog was/is a pub stomper for years. He can hook some one and if it's a dps/support one shot combo them. This by itself isn't to a big a deal but when you factor in its a team game they are probably dead in that hook alone. This would be similar to pudge in DOTA from the start of the game able to hook and kill some one with out being fed. Sure high skill levels he balanced for the most part, but people will always be out of position lower elos. So this is a negative balance issue for lower skill levels.

      Now look at something like Souljorn, they "nerffed" her but actually the changes were a huge buff especially at higher elos where she already dominated and slightly nerffed her at lower elos where people can't play hit scan heros worth shit.

      Blizzard can't balance worth shit, especially when it comes to skill/elo levels

      profit-growth oriented business model clashing with the nature of the games market
      same thing that's happening with Hasbro and WotC too actually: these companies get taken over by sociopath investors looking for constant brutal year over year growth paces that inevitably lead to predatory business practices and a reduced userbase as people hop ship to a better managed game.
      Rather than adjust, the #1 goal is to still make more money than they did last year, so they squeeze the shit out of the most profitable cow still giving milk, inevitably wringing that one dry
      then they realize there are no living cows, and the company suddenly implodes when the investors drop it for being used up.

      Welcome to modern capitalism in general, really. There is an obvious solution, and that is to support those who treat their "cows" right, but inevitably those will attract the attention of the sociopath investors.
      There is also an obvious solution to that...

      because they did the same with the first one? blizzard is desperate to generate another e-sports "community" like they had with starcraft or warcraft. Of course, this means injecting money non-stop to an scene and, surely, other companies will do the same with their own money organizing tournaments because the community is so huge you see. In reality, of course, once blizzard stop throwing money, every single person involved moves on to another scene and the ones behind play for scraps because no one cared at all about the game.

                Obviously it does not, that would go against ownership rights.

                People seem to misunderstand the capital process and how investors affect the development process. If a company sells most of its shares to minority shareholders, then of course they have a say on how the company should be managed, as they are part-owners.

                However, it is also entirely feasible to sell shares or take out loans to finance your company without actually giving away ownership rights, such as by diluting share votership rights. Companies where investors are blamed for mismanagement are mislabeling the blame - the real blame lies in the inept upper management that not only has sold out the company ownership, but also fails to correct the shareholders on their misgivings or, more likely than not, share in those misgivings themselves.

      The company could well stick to developing what they have already, but the investment model doesn't work that way. Investors, and Microsoft is a public traded company, need the pretend value of the company to increase. Investors bought shares at a certain pretend value, and they need that value to go higher so they can sell their shares at a profit. As a result, Microsoft has to keep growing.
      If Microsoft was a private company, like steam, it could stick to simply living off the existing revenue stream and refining the process.

                Unlikely, at least at the present moment. For all the PRC likes to thump its chest about how it rightfully owns Taiwan, it's seen in real-time how a "quick and easy" land grab can spiral into a morass. Much easier to simply sit in the background pursuing its economic agenda than try and force the issue and risk everything.

                Immediate future: Low

                Overall likelihood: High. The CCP says on official media that they fully intend to retake Taiwan. If Xi has nothing left to lose or is in hot water, attacking Taiwan will be an option for him.

                I'm not saying you can't invest, just that the possibility of that money you have into them being Thanos snapped is not zero. A lot of other companies have also been trying to leave China, so I just believe there are better investment opportunities in Vietnam/India companies, as that's where a lot of manufacturing is now heading.

                Xin Ding-Dong is, for the first time in thirty years, actually obliging the demands of rioters because the banking structure of China is in the toilet. China's growth plateau'd (as everyone predicted it would) and all opportunity, domestic or foreign, has pretty much evaporated in the state of China itself. The most obvious and feasible way out of this dilemma is taking over Taiwan.

      wow what an absolute retard, does this chud know that rez used to be way stronger? you could rez your entire fucking team before. the way it is now it's fine. if you can't kill a rezing mercy then you're a gay, simple as. as for mercy herself, it's true she has no real offensive ability outside of her ult which is better off used to assist your team, but the last thing we need is to encourage more support dps play. that's dumb. they need more utility, that's all. furthermore, it can be hard enough for mercy to stay alive long enough to have an impact if your team is pants on head retarded. mercy is babby's first character/the gf's character that you play when you don't know what the fuck you're doing. she's designed so you can 1) observe from afar the fight as it happens to learn about the game and 2) have some sort of impact while you're doing that.

      knowing blizzard they'll listen to this retard.

            I don't know why you need to be told that Mercy being able to rez every single fight is stronger than being able to rez 1,2, or maybe 3 teammates once every few minutes. She can rez anyone who died 6ft near a wall for free.
            Mercy also received multiple unnecessary super buffs to her movement since early OW1 so now you need to play hitscan to actually shoot her out of the air. Consider killing yourself dumbfuck

          It was never balanced. But ironically the closest OW was to being balanced was during year one before the roster kept getting bloated shitty additions like Orisa or Moira. The game never worked during Role Queue. With that format everyone is stuck playing only the most meta heroes and matchmaking goes down the toilet trying to shorten queue times.

          This has always been the case and one of the major reasons why I quit early on. I'd go from one game that was all masters/top500 players to the next where half my team was in gold or something ridiculous. The MM system clearly favors speed over quality and it's a massive waste of your time when 2/3rds of your games are stomps either way because of it.

          Really? In other words, forced 50% and MMR is basically naturally being selected against. As it should be. There's a reason a single match should be a representation of the normal distribution of all the skill levels:

          >One or two absolute retards, not knowing what they're doing.
          >Some people who are better than the retards, but clearly struggling.
          >The vast majority of players are here: they're kind of bad, kind of good, not really committed. Them winning is dependent on the rest of their team and other chance variables.
          >Now the real skill shows. A bunch of people who know the game and can overcome almost everyone in the above tiers with ease. They're be considered 'good' or professional.
          >Very rare if present at all Professional/'have no life autistically good at the game' tier. If you find one of these in your match, they basically can win against their own team.

    I'll go out on a limb and say that paladins is the better game.

    In that game, no matter what role you play, anything happening that's not supposed to be happening to you (encounter with enemy, taking damage, doing too little damage, shield), you can deal with one way or another.

    The problem in overwatch is that the characters are not weak or strong by themselves, but that they only do *one* thing, and if the characters are put against something that they can't meaningfully handle, then you're basically fucked. Imagine just standing somewhere, and a second later you have an echo blasting you with her blobs and another second later you're dead. To avoid that you have to give yourself PTSD just to be able to be aware enough to see it coming. Now imagine not just one enemy, but 9 players on the map who can do whatever they want and if it's something that makes your life harder, well... you're fucked.

    I understand the sentiment of it being a 'team' game, and that's why the characters can only do their own little thing, but Overwatch is basically just Stress: the generator.

      Doesn't Paladins have out of combat regen too? Overwatch devs are the biggest idiots on the planet for not implementing that like almost every other game in existence did. Forcing two support heroes per team of five is the dumbest shit I ever heard.

        Paladongs (I'm not making fun of it, that name just sounded funny) does have out of combat regen. It also has one quality of life thing I attempted making in the workshop (remember that thing in overwatch?) which is that if you don't have line of sight to an enemy, but a teammate does, they light up through the walls. If they added that, overwatch would be so much better.

        It does - if you spend a few seconds out of combat, you'll start regenerating health. There's also ways to get vampiric healing, healing on elimination, and healing when using certain abilities. Really, the best thing I can say about Paladins is that it gives you options.

        paladins not only has that but it also has internal rules against stacking. Every buff has diminishing returns if stacked and so does crowd control. There are items and systems that makes it so that stacking shields and healing gets you clapped pretty hard.

            Source engine maps are largely object-based, so it's relatively easy to make new ones. Overwatch maps are basically one solid piece with object textures painted onto it. As such, the only way to make new maps (or modify existing ones) is to basically draw an entirely new one from scratch.

      Because going public is the essence of "too big to fail". It produces at best 0 real value and at worst fucks the management and direction of the company by injecting a shareholder tier at upper mangement. In return, the 'estimated value' of the company increases according to the total price of all shares sold.

      Sorry for what, it's obvious he was the only one who not only knew what he was doing, but had the seniority within Blizzard to push back against Activision wanting to aggressively monetize the game.

      You know he left because they wanted to turn the game into a far worse skinnerbox and he saw the writing on the wall.

      He should have been honest and said they would break their promise to stop releasing content to release a real sequel and not this sequel add on they kept promoting which broke down into a generic F2P mess. Not sure why he's being silent now, is he under NDA or did he commit a bad act himself?

      No, he was still in charge of the game during Triple Barrier, I owe him nothing.

      They were very slow with updating then. It seems they can do it faster now with their hotfix patch because they don't have to go through Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo etc. just to synchronize a patch, but taking 3-6 months to balance adjust and letting it rock in the OWL was too much.
