News Comments > Overwatch Competitive Fix Coming

5. Re: Overwatch Competitive Fix Coming Jul 1, 2016, 15:06 Nimh
 
I'm out of the country for 3 weeks so I'm not even bothering until I return.. That said.. I've really become jaded against the Match Making algorithm they have been using in Quick Play. I feel like random teams would actually be fair in comparison to the bizarre team selection process they use.

Oh.. here's my team of level 40 thru 60 verse the enemy team of with 2 to 3 star players. I just really wonder how that's going to turn out??? Oh yeah.. we never made it to the first capture point. And then they have the balls to write some forum post about how they only want fair matches and have this detailed system to match people. **cough** full of shit. Furious

#20? Damn. Just checked, I'm Rank #13'289 and I thought my D.va was pretty sick, my best game is with her at 33 elims, kill streak of 27 and 19'500 damage done.

61 elims, 29 last hits, 29 kill streak, 48 objective kills, and 31,966 damage are my tops so far with D.Va

Massive props Mordecai! Very impressive. (You're also very good about grouping people up when they're online, keep that up also.)

Not to be an Internet Doctor wannabe, but hell, why not. It could actually be something(s) in your diet that you are beginning to have problems processing. Might be worth having blood sugar and cholesterol checked, even if your diet happens to be relatively healthy.

Just to pile on the Blue health wagon as well.. How are your vitamin D levels? If you don't supplement with something you should. If you take something, make sure it's vitamin D + magnesium + calcium (usually sold as a calcium supplement.

News Comments > Blizzard on Overwatch Matchmaking

12. Re: Blizzard on Overwatch Matchmaking Jun 22, 2016, 14:17 Nimh
 
Overwatch has short and focused matches, so you always need to funnel toward the objective if you want to contribute. Battlefield is a different format. If flag A is overwhelmed, you can always go to flag B. And if it's conquest you can generally spawn a bit further back to get a foothold if you need it (even then there can be some serious spawn camping).

The problem I have is repeatedly running into a meat grinder if my team is losing. I'm not much use to my team if I have to run from spawn 10 times in a match that we're being slaughtered in. So if my team is losing, I will either pair with another player, or try to support more from the back line. For example going Torby on Attack just to limit a good Tracer from pecking us down or taking out our healer before we get to the objective.

OW can be a frustrating game and I'm not sure MMR ratings lead to better games. It seems like they're pretty aware of it, so at least that's something.

The gameplay looks amazing.. I just can't help but be reminded that DICE under EAs watch has really lost it's way. French DLC is a prime example of this in a WW 1 game.

I think we're mostly in agreement and I also think the random-ish stacked teams is curious especially if it happens in other Blizzard titles.

Dedicating yourself to keeping an enemy in check is not as restrictive as it sounds. If you take them out, you have at least 30 seconds before they make it out of spawn and to the fight. This time is great for healthing up and taking out stragglers, at least from a Winston perspective.

I'm doing quick matches and I'm at 161/125 win/lose ratio. It does seem like sometimes you are steam rolled hard, but I think it's just bad team synergy coming up against a good team synergy.

Today I had a match against a god-like Zenyatta on route 66. He was ridiculous in the kill cams. Orb + 2-4 direct hits in quick succession, and consistently. We were obliterated until the mid-section of the map. I changed to Winston and just focused Zenyatta. I took him out 3-4 times but once he was down our team was able to hold the map.

Edit: Same goes for Widowmaker and few other back-line hero's.. Winston just dominates them if he can get's them isolated and with his pounce.

Hm, yeah Zenyatta can be easily countered and certainly isn't OP with that health-pool of his. Widowmaker, on the other hand, simply cannot be properly countered. I've seen Winston suggested somewhere else too, but the real 1337 widowmakers (which are the only real issue here) just take that hit, grapple away and headshot Winston into oblivion.

There's really a general consensus among the players that Widowmaker is an OP class that doesn't fit into the style of the game.

This probably goes back to the match making again.. but I've only encountered one Widowmaker that was mildly compentant at aiming the grapple while under fire. And in that case I just followed her with the leap.

Elite players are a true PITA at any class they're good with, but isn't that how it goes?

Lyme disease in Nova Scotia is no joke but the process to rid yourself of it is. If you're unfortunate enough to contract it you then find yourself marveling at the fact that nearly all doctors will either refuse to test you or won't offer you a proper method of treatment if they suspect it. The best thing you can do is cross the boarder in New Brunswick and seek medical assistance in Maine.

It was like that in Quebec also, but I think they're better about it now (probably depends on where you go). A friend of ours would drive to Plattsburgh to see a doctor with Lyme disease experience. When we lived in NY we would catalog our ticks in the freezer by date, just in case something happened and we needed to have tests done.

I thought about getting this, and went back to TF2 to see if I really felt like a team shooter. A couple of hours later, I was all done.

I think I just don't go for them anymore, played too many. Anyhow, doing things this way saved me 40 bucks.

That's pretty damn retarded to be honest. I went back and played Doom 1993 to see if I'd like Doom 2016.. saved me 60 bucks.

Not really. I've played a lot of team shooters, and although Overwatch looks great I think I've had my fill of those mechanics. To each their own.

Also, please don't call something retarded just because you don't agree with it. It makes you look 13 years old, and most of the guys on here are in their 30's and 40's.

You may say.. I don't like multiplayer games, we can respect that. You could also say I don't like FPS games, that's also valid. But the act of choosing a game based on an 8 year old f2p example.. that is rather retarded.

Quality content is quality content. Overwatch is that. Maybe it's not your speed, that's cool. Overwatch is not TF2, by a long shot.

Overwatch is fun in short bursts, but like bubblegum the lack of progression and complexity leaves me sated after a few matches.

You're using the word "sated" wrong.
Just trying to be helpful. I normally wouldn't point out something like this but you've got it completely opposite there and if you're doing this often that could be really confusing for the reader

Actually I used it correctly. After a few matches of Overwatch I am sated, meaning that I am full and satisfied and no longer have any desire to play the game. Like chewing bubble gum, it was fun for a few minutes but then I have my fill and spit it out. Another way of saying it is that Overwatch imo is a bit simplistic so it is easier to get everything I want out of it and I have no real desire for more.

Ah I get you now. It's not often that someone talks about the lack of something and then follows that up with feeling sated.

Kind of like saying something is well-rounded and multifaceted. It technically works, but the individual terms contradict each other.

So in that breath, I give OW some slack that they just launched today, but come on, 20 tic for a "pro e-sports hyper-competitive" 6v6 FPS game is a slap in the face.

It's been discussed, no idea if it's valid, that custom games use 60 tic. The thing is.. it does not feel like 20 to me. They may be doing something else with prediction to make it play better. <shrug>

You've obviously never experienced the power of their crappy server prediction and "Favor the Shooter" mindset. Have you played and been shot around a corner by a sniper like Hanzo or Widowmaker or by Bastion in turret mode? Watched the KillCam after? On YOUR client, you got out of the way. On THEIR client, you were standing out in the open and boom.

This stuff happens less on games that update the server and clients more often about where people are and what they are doing. 20 tick is Blizzard cheaping out on network traffic to save money at the expense of gameplay experience for their customers.

Hanzo just feels like a huntsman to me. The arrow hit box is like the size of a toaster oven or something. Crappy prediction is BF 1942, etc., that feels diferent.

I'm not...

Me neither. Waiting to hear feedback from PC gamers about the maychmsking. Smooth or is it laggy like other games that forgo sever browsers for peer to peer lovin

Gameplay is smooth, no noticeable glitches or anything. Some people have claimed the tick rate from the server is low, but I personally have a hard time seeing that in the game. The engine is lightening fast. Matchmaking is client/server, no p2p.

The game is a breath of fresh air on the team shooter genre. TF2 has turned into a laggy mess of code, the only thing Valve supports in that game is the revenue stream from cosmetics, the recent match making was a joke. The Battlefield series has become biannual EA shovelware. Overwatch is under pretty tight control, no CTF, no modded servers, etc., but I think it helps focus the game at the moment. Time will tell if it ages well, at least Blizzard has committed to it.

It's a fast game to get into but difficult to dominate in due to it's Rock/Paper/Scissor setup. We had a match last night where our team was just getting decimated as we were trying to defend. Someone swapped to Bastion and completely cut off access to one side of the map. It allowed the rest of us to actually set up a defense. It completely shifted the game play of the other team. We went back and forth like that a couple times, it was a blast.

I'm not sure why but I still have the option to play the game even though I never bought it. Also, I thought there weren't going to be any microtransactions or was that strictly in regards to heroes and maps?

Microtransactions are for loot boxes only I believe. All upcoming heros and maps will be available to everyone.
