Since it's 12 teams, they can make Atlantic/Pacific teams with 1 member from each team obviously. Will end up being strange how they do voting since people might pick 6 dps stars.

They should be coloring it in shades of red vs. blue. The white in a video game makes it seem pastel and bland.Even if they gave the white a slight team color hue it wouid look better. Home skins solid, white skins need iteration.

All the buffs/nerfs are relative. Roadhog makes a good counter for strong Doomfists since he has the highest raw health pool and can heal doomfist charges. Probably still won't make pro meta but I might play more roadhog since people undervalue him.

Scott Mercer was interviewed on stream with seagull and one of the teasers he dropped was a match history and various info about what they might do with stats.

Pretty necessary right now. It was amusing to see somebody on Reddit offer to analyze someone's online stats when there really isn't a valid stat system for game history. (Which surprise, Paladins already has smh.)

My friends and I are just sick of how it always seems like you get to the point just before overtime is over and still lose. The timer is not kind, whether it's lag related or some overtime compensation. There was also a video on reddit that showed that the overtime fuse favors the one of the teams, i.e. if someone is booped off the fuse doesnt tick down right away.

The group stage results of Contenders were super confusing because the checkbox and x showed up after the first day of group stage play. Some way to wait to apply those tags would be less confusing.

I expected you to reach diamond at the end of that map. Platinum does seem to lend itself to tight 5 round KOTH games, it seems choking and creating reverse sweeps is too common.

posted 8 months ago

The Player Handbook actually shows a slightly different map setup which makes more sense (not including the comp names).

It's actually

Best of 3: Payload / Control / 2CP
4 Game Set: Hybrid / Control / 2CP / Payload
Best of 5: Control / Payload / 2CP / Hybrid / Control
Best of 7: Control / Payload / 2CP / Hybrid / Control / Payload / Hybrid

You Europeans are so commonly bilingual, I'm guessing l'internethulk probably speaks French as well?

So weird to see the former APEX champion lucio/tank becoming an analyst for the other side. Almost feels traitorish? I guess go where the money takes you, perhaps?

Did you miss the Overwatch PIT tournament? Same 4 maps for 4 days and then on the 5th day of group stage they switch the map pool entirely. This map pool setup was fine.

Also Sideshow's mic was super quiet. I was trying to watch a bit at work but if I turned it down to a stealthy level all I'd hear was Jamerson...

Us OW watchers are so spoiled by NGE/ogn production teams!

Why change the map pool after the 4th round robin game? And having such a small pool weirdly balances it towards practicing certain maps.

This is similar to what I dreamed up in another post, but based on the slide that was presented it doesn't seem like they have any intention of doing it.

posted 10 months ago

So they [Americans/Euros] for example, would rather spend months in Korea at a time as they currently do for APEX?

If anything they should really have like 4 teams a region and have some intercontinental play and not a ton. In America, baseball has the American league and National league and they play their division teams more often then the other teams in the entire league.

4 Pacific teams, 4 Asian teams, 4 NA, 4 EU, etc.etc.,

having 16 teams randomly plucked in places seems like a stretch.

"Overwatch League" as Blizzard wants to dream it up could work if it's not the same as just passively watching LoL/CS/DOTA, but if it's just pro teams becoming regional entities it's not going to draw a ton of focus. If IRL watching events included convention-like gaming experiences it could be well attended. I could see myself going to a Boston OW team event if there is some other draw to it. Big cities like Boston could use more internet/gaming cafes. Perhaps if these are part of the home arena it could boost the draw. High-refresh rate gaming isn't something every PC (and no console) gamers get, the chance to demo OW at one of these events could draw more people in.

Anecdotally, even though OW has sold millions of units, a good fraction of those players aren't playing the game anymore and have no interest in watching competitive OW. There was a lot of hype around some of my circles at launch and now it's only the diehards that love FPSs who are still playing it. OW the universe drew a lot of people in, but the game itself is a particular blend of FPS that doesn't attract everyone.

But if there are more opportunities for casual or high-ladder OW players to play on teams (B-teams for practice, or local amateurs mixed with pros?), then it could attract a more wide spread viewer base. But as it is right now with low viewer counts for current professional tournaments, it doesn't make sense for OW to be a million dollar league without something drastically different.

I like that this site is very clean and the information/articles are explicitly about the games and the teams that are happening, unlike gosugamers which has way more commentary articles and more clutter on their main site. When I just want to know what games are happening this is a great site and it can only get better!

So I've been theory-crafting about the Overwatch League. I have no inside knowledge and haven't done any hard-hitting research like Sideshow--just thinking about how it might be dreamed up in a successful way. I remember some opinions being a bit skeptical how it would work, but I don't think it's too crazy an idea.

  1. Focus on NA/EU/Asia/ETC (4) divisions. You could try for 6 regionals teams in each area. Let's take NA as an example: North-east/SE/MidWest/South/Cali/NorthWest (I completely neglected Canada here, oops.) BostonNY?/Miami/Chicago/Austin/Cali/Seattle

  2. "Combine" - invite try-outs from competitive ladder players at gaming/LAN cafe event centers, where that regions' team would play in future events.

  3. Local transport is cheaper if you stay inter-regional. Not that expensive to send 6 players, a coach, some assistants across the US, I know Europe train prices are pretty reasonable too.

  4. Final World Series event could be top 4 teams from each region. At a big Blizzcon like event.

  5. Overwatch League runs separate from the sponsor-driven competitive team market, invites only players within a certain region. Must be citizens of that country maybe? IDK if that's fair even, but it would limit people moving across regions just to play top OW.

  6. The OW World Cup was the most solid Overwatch produced tournament to date, but the games weren't as satisfying and the finals were depressing due to Korea's amazing team. Bringing real player talent from competitive ladder who aren't already on Pro teams, as well as maybe various local-Pro's should up the quality of the gameplay.

  7. Overwatch does seem widely popular, and I can imagine lots of people who may not normally be seen as gaming pros get to try out, playing on 144hz+ screens with good equipment. Seems like a cool event if you're from that gaming area. (Note Blizzard surely could crunch the numbers and find areas with high concentrations of Overwatch players.)

Seems like an interesting way to create a more NFL/MLB league system where teams are associated with popular cities/areas. I think that's all I've come up with.

Thoughts?

Almost no Mei was played in the APEX tournament, hence why it happened so much here. Which was strange since that match saw perma-Dva.

Very interesting to see his behind the scenes view. I can see why he was chosen as BlizzCon analyst, he writes really well about the game. Sucks that Blizzard doesn't care about breaking competitive metas that may favor certain teams.

Wouldn't it be better to pick EnVyUs and play on Friday if they know Talespin isn't going to play? NV would either have random sub after a day or forfeit. The weekend gives time for NV to practice with the new line up.

Hahah you got me there.

What would this game be like Mei Walls weren't a thing--if CC wasn't a thing, etc. I'm afraid maybe the problem with Overwatch long-term is it tries to pack too many abilities into this game just for the sake of new heroes to have fun with, when it changes the game to know that a character can take away someone else's abilities.

I wonder if the next generation of FPS games inspired by Overwatch will ban things like crowd control from Mei's kit simply because it's not fun to play against.

posted about a year ago

I think they need to tone down her whole kit. Hacking healthpacks lasts too long. Stealth has a crazy short cooldown for an invisible power. It's also an incredibly frustrating and trolly character to play against. It makes me afraid for whatever next character will ruin the basic FPS gameplay that is fun about this game. Perhaps building a large hero pool in an FPS isnt sustainable for fun game play.
