Are you just like an arbiter of what people should do?

Instead of criticizing maybe post an example of an indie unit who went to blizzcon and has the same quality of direct feed and commentary.
No I’m asking people not to support outlets and instead to suppport creators that spend their own money.
you do you. Don’t pretend there’s something wrong with what I asked.

if you haven’t seem the deluge of content that’s on you.

Its not on me because I didn't care.

You seem to care so I'm asking you to share what you want us to see. You simply don't and just wanted to be an arbiter in what we should do.

If you really cared you would post and this wouldn't get into some long discussion but instead you just want to point back at us.

TOTALLY disagree but you seem to want to argue but since we are on the net I don’t.
Have a great night. 👻

I'm so confused lol. Did you really just blast off because I posted footage from an outlet everyone knows? Going by your reasoning we shouldn't play Overwatch because Blizzard already has too much money. This doesn't make any sense lol

No one blasted off. I was attacked for suggesting. Are you now continuing this?!?

can people not just take suggestions without a counter attack?

NEVERMIND. I’ll go back to lurking. Keep the aggression to yourself please.

I'm just a big bully I guess.

Trying to help out the indies by asking for examples.

anyway,
About halfway through our interview, I asked Kaplan and the game's technical director, John LaFleur, how they were able to convince management to merge Overwatch 1 and Overwatch 2 players. It's the antithesis of how most publishers would approach a sequel, and something that investors would certainly raise an eyebrow over, and as soon as I asked the question Kaplan laughed out loud.

"That sounds like a very difficult argument to make from a strategic level in 2018-2019, to convince a company to go forward with that kind of vision," I asked, prompting a laugh from Kaplan and LaFleur.

"Welcome to my world," Kaplan joked. "You want to talk about that, it absolutely is. It's very challenging because the industry has done things the same way for so long. And so it's hard to get people, push them out of their comfort zone and say, hey I think we could do it a better way."

2 points on my mind: I wonder if we’ll get all new events when OW2 rolls around. Suuuure hope so.

The major one is Jeff said he could still be previewing this time next year. We normally would have got a map this September and a new hero this month. Even accounting 1 more with Echo that’s still potentially 3-4 maps ands heroes we’re missing if it releases this time next year. All of a sudden 4 new maps and heroes doesn’t sound all that impressive, just held content. I’m not even a nay sayer on the game I’m hype for it but the content math on what we get between now and then will be interesting.

Shoot, I can't find it but I thought I read somewhere that said OW2 will have about the same # of maps that OW1 did at launch (12 maps).

There's no way they launch with just 4 maps considering they would have to have that many maps just for Push.

Edit: They probably said it during the panel, because this is from the panel recap

In addition to multiple new Push maps, Overwatch 2 will feature multiple new locations for each existing PvP mode.

Well, yeah, but OW2 will also have every OW1 map.

So what do you guys think about actually buying OW2? Are you convinced? Are you getting it day one or still undecided?

So far from what they showed i am not impressed at all. Yeah it's still early but first impressions are pretty meh. I feel like i will be fine with the first game and if it's not like 30$ at launch i will probably get OW2 later, on sale. There is no any need for me to get OW2 day one. But things might change later.

I'll probably buy, PvE is fun. Definitely depends on the scale of the campaign and replayability of the rest, but that's too soon to judge IMO.

Don't care for OW PVE content at all. Only reason I'd ever buy it is for skins, assuming they not trash. Would need be real cheap too.

I will, the pve mission seemed more in line with retribution than storm rising and it had bosses this time, if they give those a year or two i think they’ll be pretty fun

I hope hero missions work like a lite story mode though, or at leat give some insights on the characyers

Dissappointed hammy gets no lore tho, it’d be fun af to see him there, and i wonder how they’re gonna deal with talon

Hammond won't get lore? They mentioned which heroes they'll use already? I was hoping we'd encounter more and more during the campaign, recruiting heroes and fighting with/against Talon (for story reasons) etc. A real campaign story with character development and whatnot.

-All OW heroes are returning
- Saw 4 silhouetted characters
- None of the immediately recognizable from concept arts, comic books, or any art, which I take to mean not Mauga, junker queen, omnic dread lock guy
- 3 looked female
- 1 had a staff
- 1 character had a fuzzy critter with pointy ears and tail at her side, maybe a summon like Bob
- 1 had a giant Shuriken type weapon

The image contained four silhouettes, none were immediately recognizable as characters that were teased in earlier concept arts, comic books, or any of the art we've seen
More pointing towards Junker Queen and Echo being released before OW2


What I could imagine for the girl with the pet:

You can order the pet to move to positions and possible have abilities interacting with the pet.

Pulling the pet back to you or jumping to it

Maybe a way to bounce some attack between you and the pet
