wonder what that 10 meters is in comparison to how he was before the original buff? either way, that sounds massive.

I dunno, the effect is probably negligible..

mostly made up numbers spaced in 10ish meter increments
and based on this
"Damage: 35 - 70 (per hit) - Damage decreases with distance"

70-70-70-65-60-55-50-45-40-35
and now
70-70-65-60-55-50-45-40-35-35

Link to the actual patch notes:

http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20747615932

It actually looks like more of an overall buff than a nerf.

The only nerf is that damage starts to falloff 10 meters earlier.
The buffs are a faster firing fan the hammer (ugh)
and a faster time to attack following throwing a FB.

Basically they made his flashbang + fan the hammer combo more effective again, which is the thing most people going up against McCree hate.

[Gabe's] a total dick that pushed the move behind the removal of dedicated servers.

Haha what? Valve is one of the very few developers who still support private dedicated servers.

You're a fucking moron if you believe that... remember steam drm was forced into half life and cs, no one wanted it. Steam lead the charge against game confiscation and adding layers of encryption to steam game files, etc.

No it's fact, Valve is one of the few developers who still support dedicated private servers. L4D2, CSGO, DOTA2, Portal 2... all their recent games support dedicated servers. Most developers don't include those anymore Valve does.

The things you mention in your reply aren't dedicated servers and are a non-sequitur. I was specifically replying to correct your statement about their support for dedicated servers which was wildly wrong. Watch it with the name calling, it works better when you're not totally wrong.

$15 for one table? Damn that's expensive. Pinball Arcade is my goto pinball game. With actual Ballys, Williams and Gottlieb pinball machines. 21 tables in the first pack for $30.

Y'all Pinball Arcade players need to friend me on Steam so we can compete for highscores. I have all of the tables too.

Whoa, I haven't played in a long time... This new UI is terrible.
I liked the minimalism of the last one. Certainly looked nicer than this one.

edit: damn every control looks like it's disabled... light gray on gray? who the fuck...

I do sometimes feel like I'm playing a different game than the one described in this and other forums. Even when I'm solo-queuing the competition is much better than I see described. Y'all gotta pull yourselves out of those skill holes, I know it's a death spiral sometimes but you gotta escape, there's a fun well balanced game above it

Ahh gotcha, thought you were complaining about the hero, but you're complaining about bad players.
Well, to be fair - Genji's design *is* part of the problem, since he attracts people with that ka/d mindset. Zero team-orientated skills. If something akin to deflect were his ult and covered an AoE with some flashy graphical effect, for example, he might be more compelled to aid his teammates on the objective.

But it isn't. And the vast majority of kills off-the-point are between players who play, off-the-point, and often don't contribute to either side's objective time at all. The amount of times I've lost an overtime, despite having a Genji *right next to the objective,* who's 1v1'ing someone else...

Ana will be similar, when played by the vast majority of people that adopt her. A "I can't kill, I'll heal" character, that requires the same skillset used to kill... Yeah.

Well then we're still going to have to disagree. He is by design meant to be on the periphery, killing other players who are also there... He is meant to hunt down healers, junkrats, and snipers. Any kill contributes to the team and the objective. The game is only a 6 on 6... dropping 1 or 2 people in the backfield makes a huge difference in the balance of the game at that moment. Sometimes people get too caught up in the logistics when really all that's needed is some kills so the situation is a 6-4 instead of a 5-6.

I think you're playing with very bad Genjis. I don't play him so this isn't a personal thing or anything, he's just a very strong addition to a team when he's played competently. When we're getting wrecked it's usually because some master genji keeps getting behind us and causing distractions.
That was the point of my first post:

ninemil wrote on Jul 19, 2016, 21:16:
Prediction: Ana will be the new Genji. You'll hate 90% of the people that play her, as they'll never contribute anything to the objective, and then the one or two others that use her effectively will break the game.

Almost everyone *is* a bad Genji. Except the very few that aren't, who then break the game.

Ahh gotcha, thought you were complaining about the hero, but you're complaining about bad players.

Genji is a beast against Bastion and like Tracer he's a "get behind enemy lines and cause chaos" kind of guy. They're not supposed to be on the objective, they're supposed to be past it.
Almost anyone who can aim can deal with Bastion, and Tracer has plenty of other counters that don't require removing a sixth of the team from the objective.

Yet Genji's quite possibly the most hardlocked character I've seen.

Wretched waste of a slot, almost all of the time. Ana will be the same.

edit: In tournament play he was picked more often than 11 other characters. So competitive teams playing for money thought he was more valuable than 11 other heroes.

They reduced Zen damage by 5
Hopefully the quadrupling of the Discord travel speed makes up for that.

So where my attack pattern might have gone:
45 + 45 + 67.5 + 67.5 = 225
It might now be like,
40 + 60 + 60 + 60 = 220

Crap that's still 5 lower.
Maybe it's so fast the first hit will be with discord on and it can be 240.

Is it just me or does this game come off like the douchiest game for douchebag dudbros ever, or what? If you don't have frosted tips, acid wash jeans and printed Ts you're not even permitted to buy it. Do you even lift, bro?

I'm pretty sure it's that way intentionally.
It's a CliffyB production. Think Gears of War and Bulletstorm.

This is one of my favorite shows, all time. Third season supposedly comes out towards the end of 2016. Hopefully they can follow through on their prediction, some of these small scale Cartoon Network teams seem to get delayed a lot.

This game looks...not great, on the other hand. Kinda funny for like 5 minutes then probably boring. I'd have to see more footage before buying.

It's by the same people as job simulator. So if you haven't seen those, take a look at the videos for that. They could definitely get more than 5 minutes out of it. And then there's maybe a few hours of scripted objectives. Once you get done with that you can stretch the game time just messing around and discovering easter-egg-like combinations of things to do and mess with. I really like these styles of games, reminds me of the very old kid games we'd play in the library that were essentially just a pixel hunt where every object was clickable and did something zany... Except now it's VR and has physics.

Every 6 same-hero team I've ever played against has been murdered.

But there are some pretty smart combinations of double heros in competitive. Blizzard is just making it exponentially easier for themselves to balance the game at the very high end.

News Comments > Valve on Game Item Gambling

Squirmer wrote on Jul 13, 2016, 19:18:
Also, people rightly criticize any game that has these 'slot machine' items you can buy. Like any slot machine, it's exploitative, and the makers know it.

You're conflating two different topics, other posters and articles have been doing this as well and that's probably what's blurred the lines between what Valve is in control of and what it's not.

This response from Valve is concerning third party sites where users give their items to Steam accounts run by these sites and the site then runs a gambling operation. You wager in items, you are rewarded items... but there's a third Steam account involved.

This is not the same as the randomized loot crates that you pay $2.50 to open that you're calling "slot machines".

You probably aren't intentionally trying to confuse, and probably know the difference between the two topics... but there's the explanation for anyone who doesn't.
