It depends on the map and on the enemy team composition.

But generally tracer is harder hitting and more mobile. Good for taking out low mobility characters like supports/defensive characters

Sombra is better for tanks and she annialates their shields. I personally think Sombra is better but she's harder to use.

ANYWAYS who's looking forward to the event tomorrow :D

I need sat Torb skin

"In queue: 50000 players ahead of you"

What the hell? Never seen this when launching the game before. Is there some super event going on that I don't know about?

Yeah, Insurrection is the biggest event we've ever had.

Queues do happen at event launches -- I've never seen a queue that big though. Madness that they think that's acceptable. I'm just going to wait another half an hour and hope they can do something to ease the load.

Oh! I'm hearing rumours on Reddit that they are currently hotfixing an issue with the new lootboxes, and no-one is allowed to login until then. That makes a lot more sense than them being woefully underprepared. :slol:

My queue disconnected, then informed me there were now 100000 players ahead of me.

Okay, this is just rumours and speculation, but I think what happened is that the new lootboxes don't actually always contain the new items (due to a bug), and obviously that's a pretty big issue if people are buying them with real money, so they're fixing that before they let anyone in.

I'd have thought something like that would be by design rather than a bug. Previous event lootboxes have never been guaranteed to contain a new event item have they? Just had a chance to have them?

No, event loot boxes are always guaranteed to have at least one event item.

I'd have sworn I've got loot boxes during previous events that didn't have event items.

Then again it's probably because I always got some stupid logo or tag or something that nobody gives a gooseberry fool about.

So you're saying this game is still popular?

For the first time ever I was good enough to be accused of being a hacker using an aimbot.

I've finally made it.



Also, I could've sworn there used to be an option in your friends list to join a friend's game when they were in quick play, but I can't find it now. Did that get removed? Am sure I've used that to join people's games before by just right clicking them in my friend list.

It's pretty good if you can get a team of four together for sure. Not sure I like playing it with randoms that much though.

Worked pretty well with randoms for me.
I hope they do more story based PvE content in future.

Randoms can be dicks in PvE.

This one guy was last to pick, we have no healer, so he flashes mercy and then locks in Pharah. Then proceeds to quit when he realiaes we don't have a healer.

Then another time this Lucio player (on the first point) refused to heal me, like literally shook his head at me when I asked for healing. We were playing on hard so I died and then so did everyone else.

I find it baffling how there are so many selfish people playing a team based game. Like if you want a game with cool powers where you don't have to work as a team go play strawberry floating Destiny.

I only play with randoms and bar one or two disconnects I'm yet to have a bad team in this event. People generally know good team composition and as a support main I don't need to worry about the team lacking a healer in any of my games.

I missed most of the Halloween event (still regret not getting Witch Mercy :cry:) as the game had lost its appeal at the time but this PVE event has been great fun so far.

I use a variety of characters and struggle to remember the last game I played where I wasn't the solo healer, and the rest of the team picked offence/sniper heroes.

Maybe because I main Zen in keeps placing me with offence players, but we still need tanks and another healer...

Team composition is generally OK in Competitive on PC. In Quick Play you often end up with 2 snipers & 2 flankers, though. It's not even worth healing or tanking for a team like that.

Liking the new mode. Think they could make a great campaign shooter out of the Overwatch Omnics story. Have managed to do this on hard and came very close on Expert but it's hard with randoms. The more you have in your group the more chance of success as this is nigh impossible when people start running off into the wilderness. It's a bit easier on the all heroes version as Bastion pretty much wrecks everything.. but it's been fun using Torbjorn and mounting turrets up high on the defend the payload bit xD Also it seems like they've further reduced the drop rate for decent goodies from the loot boxes as I've got practically sod all of the new stuff so far!
