I want a signed gum gum t-shirt. Signed at dreamhack.

I’m lucky if i game 6 hours a week never mind a day, That’s insane to me at this age anyway, suppose a lot of the top players are younger generation.

Misconception again, alot of the CS players are 20+, people like Taz, Neo are late 20’s and even 30!

So, that new hero

Played some of her on the ptr, heres my notes so far:

she can use her rifle out of scope, bolt action still
seems to do same dmg to head and body
its a dot but very fast
3 shots to kill a training bot
her heal isnt strong, takes 4 shots to heala training bot
6 clip, 1 per dmg/heal shot
the sleep lasts for like 4 seconds, seems like forever in game, breaks on damage
no mobility at all, will rely solely on range and her sleep to survive.
projectile out of scope?

seems a bit op as is, not sure how good she’d be for healing tanks though.

What a great way to make sure everyone plays Zenyata

Finally I get to use the best skin in the whole game


Sickeningly good.

I am still amazed at the amount of people who haven’t quite got this game yet.

Me Harry Smidsy and Dean went into some ranked yet and we played a Koth where they ended up running two widows outside of the objective and literally let us just take the point.

People are just awful at objectives. Everyone is so obsessed with getting kills they ignore the entire premise of the game. Quick-play is a cesspool of this now lol

(Gavin Rainey) #577

I think it is how much the stats stick out too, people seeing damage and participation.

You could do 100k damage to someone and never kill them if they can self heal, and you dont push to finish the deal.

Entire seagull video he has a pocket mercy, no wonder he never dies.


Reaper confirmed as @Rod’s main.

The rest is pretty interesting as well, lots of unused voice files hinting at some Moba-like gamemode.

Dat 'Hog voice line!

New Bnet update has fucked up, if you can - avoid installing it.

(Ben ) #583

Fine for me


Yea seems to have been the luck of the draw in terms of if it failed or not - http://us.battle.net/forums/en/bnet/topic/20747764729?page=3#post-58 annoyingly for me it did, but at least they’ve rolled back the update.
