Watching my friend who's new to overwatch attempt to take on the whole team solo as Pharah.
Long, unbound hair is a bitch to animate. It's why Ashe's concept art showed her with long hair, but cropped it off when they made the actual character model. The closest we'll get is Widow's long ponytail.
I'm so-so on Ashe, but in it for the Bob
That’s one of the reasons why I want them to remove that restriction, it’s like they’re herding people towards an offensive play style. I’ve been guilty of playing too offensively as Moira since you get lost in battle.
Can anyone verify which one is true?Is this actually true though? I've seen a lot of people say that, but from personal experience and from even high level streamers on new accounts, the first placement game always seems to be somewhere in gold. Unless those high level players are just buying accounts that have already been leveled up. Mainly looking at Kabaji, he's now done 3 of his unranked to GM accounts and all three the first placement game was somewhere in gold. I can't imagine if he leveled up an account in QP it would make him start there.
Well, someone else say they started in diamond in the first placement, so it could be true that QP matters.
Blizzard has never come out and said anything on the issue.
Yeah, I think they also changed the system so you can't place super high. I remember watching something long ago where someone got 3500 on their first placements, but they went 8-2, winning the first 7 games in a row.Blizzard has never come out and said anything on the issue.
Last time I heard it was very small affect, you'll still wind up a few hundred from 2500, highest I've heard was mid diamond. When you first start placements it uses your qp mmr as a baseline but from what I've seen it's more towards lowering your rank then increasing it.
Just play your best and go from there. You wont get masters or gm through initial placements. Plus you have a period after placements where it'll give you a boost in sr if you do well.
Speaking of, I was just thinking how Sym could enable some really cool PvE plays with her teleport. Limitless Uprising is gonna be fun now that you can enable altering positions on a whim. Sym could benefit more from it than any other character work.
https://www.reddit.com/r/Competitiveoverwatch/comments/bdycsc/updates_from_developer_stream/Jeff confirmed that there is something big and secret they are working on and excited to show us. He says it is not something that has been requested or talked about to their knowledge.
Jeff confirmed there are two large systematic changes being worked on, but neither is a guild system. They love the idea of a guild system but are not sure about its implementation yet.
The follow up to the above was asking about role queue. Jeff wouldn’t say whether it’s confirmed or not but said once again that he’s a huge proponent of it. He said there are some difficulties such as building in incentives to play tanks and healers. He knows there’s the negative incentive to play DPS which would be long queue times, but they further desire positive incentives to play tanks and healers.
He says Anniversary cosmetics are potentially the best Overwatch has seen and teased that there will be a a DVa skin that he says will absolutely “Break the Internet”.
