I enjoyed the beta but I just don't feel its worth the retail price ATM......
Totally agree. I can't justify $40-60 for a multiplayer only game that gives us the exact same game modes TF2 offered in 2008. It is shameful that Blizzard thinks rehashing TF2 gameplay some 8 years later justifies a "full" game.

Valve at least had the courtesy to bundle TF2 with two other amazing games with the Orange Box. And then they made TF2 free for the last 5 years.

Maybe my standards are just too high, but why are people eating up what is basically a less-featured TF2 clone? A sad state of affairs.

You want something to fail because you dislike the game (company?) without even playing it?
I'll jump in and say I do want Overwatch to fail (it will sell millions and be a huge success of course) because it is yet another example of companies delivering less content and hardly any innovation, yet they expect us to pay $40-60 for it.

Why would I want Blizzard to be rewarded for giving us game modes directly ripped from TF2? Do you want to encourage developers to stop making Single-Player campaigns and meaningful Co-op? Do you even understand they just stole their ideas from TF2, a game that has been Free-to-Play for 5 years? I played the Beta, which is the full game minus some maps. It is TF2 with less features...
