Overwatch Day

I'm still enjoying Overwatch, as evinced by the 376 hours I've spent playing it. For reference, Steam says that I played Skyrim for 345 hours, Borderlands 2 for 232 hours, Fallout 4 for 214 hours, and Portal Stories: Mel for 30 minutes. I enjoy the fact that Overwatch matches are quick, self-contained, and always fresh, even though I haven't branched out from the few heroes I play the most.

  • Roadhog is my default hero pick, because I feel like I can make a difference in a game regardless of how good my team is. I've also become adept at "fishing for Tracers" with the hook, which is always satisfying.
  • Junkrat is the character I have the most fun with because he can be played completely chaotically and blows things up, after which you can emote "Happy Birthday!".
  • Lucio is my default healer choice when I don't feel like doing much other than herding cats and pushing the payload.
  • Mercy used to be my main healer choice, but really needs a good team to be satisfying to play. This is still the best play I ever did:
  • Mei was my (mei)n hero in beta, and I've gotten back into playing her again recently with the buffs to her Blizzard ultimate. I love that she pisses everyone off on the enemy team even if she doesn't do much burst damage.
  • I only play Reaper when the enemy team has more than 2 tanks and we're struggling to survive. I'm pretty awful at most of the offense heroes but in this specific situation, Reaper shines.

Come play!
