    So today's stream was really great, we finally had a chance to see live the state of the game soon before launch.
    Blizzard also anwsered quite a few community question, about FoV, servers, singleplayer etc (you can find them e.g. here: https://twitter.com/foroverwatch)

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm really excited for the game and can't wait to play it. Still can't decide which hero I'm going to play, they ALL are awesome.

    I've been keeping an eye on this one as well. I'll be interested to see what kind of profit model they'll be settling on. I'm also looking forward to the upcoming beta starting October 27th, I hope I can get in!!

    Me too! Overwatch looks amazing and I'm really excited for it. Widowmaker looks like my kind of hero, I'm probably going to learn her first. What about you guys?

    I'm going to have to play with both Mercy & Zenyatta a bit to see which healing support is my first choice, but when I feel like playing DPS then Hanzo will probably be my first choice and symmetra my second. Though, obviosly, I'll try them all to see what truly fits best.

    It is going to be a great game I think. Winston and Mercy will be my first plays. I want to see how tanking and healing plays into it. Everyone will go dps so I am hoping blizz has got it right and made tanks and heals key to game play.

    Any European Overwatch fans here? There has been an announcement that the beta will start on the same date as in USA, 27th! Great news, love it since I live in Europe.

    the news is right here: https://twitter.com/OverwatchEU?lang=en

    can't wait. signed up months ago so really hoping they have a good number of players in the beta. Hot's started with very low numbers and it took a good 4 weeks for me to get a key

    Yeah. Meanwhile we have the estimated time of the launch.

    awesome. Gotta get me some jetpack Ape fun!

    The character diversity on launch looks impressive. It's a shame the hardcore gamers in my clan are simply dismissing it as a TF2 clone.

    Yeah. It is very similiar to TF2, but it doesn't mean thats bad. And from what I can see Blizzrad wants to turn Overwatch into a serious, competetive community with tourneys etc. I like that.

    You are likely right. Should be some details at blizzcon as I know they are wanting to push HoTS in the same direction.

    they tried with WoW years ago but it never got much traction.
     
  17. Grzesiko

    Yeah. And hopefully they learned their mistakes with StarCraft 2. It's a really ncie game, but somewhat hard to spectate for someone who doesnt know the mechanics. Plus the first 7 minutes of the game are boring just because players are only expanding.
    I think with Overwatch they will try to take a niche somewhere between CS:GO and COD.

    Do not think that will be an issue with a shooter.

    Can you change class mid match? Otherwise I would hope they would use some sort of draft / ban system.

    I just googled it and apparently you CAN switch mid game.

    I think you are right, and they should make some sort of banning/drafting system for competitive play. Unless they want to focus on the fun side of tourneys with switches on.
