Didn't get any email. I'm in, though.

Launcher says it's just a stress test for the weekend.

So I really like this game. I can run match ups in my head and know what hero does well against who and thinking up new tactics to try out.

Tracer is just about as much fun as I anticipated. I wish she did more damage because she starts to really lose her oomph once you fight players who more or less get the hang of their characters.

Fuck Bastion. Utterly fuck him. He is scrub tier. He needs a cooldown for being able to shift into modes. I never played much TF2 after the engineers got that shielded sentry they can aim with but holy shit, this frustration must be what its like to play against that. But I've seen some really cool tactics of handling Bastion.

Surprisingly fun character is Lucio. Straight outta a Sega game.

You're scrub tier.

Because the information isn't in this thread:

You can pre-purchase Overwatch here. USD $39.99 for the game. Set to release spring 2016. Announced at Blizzcon.

Beta is going down on the 10th. Coming back mid-late January.

Today it was announced future heroes and maps will be free.

I mean, they should be free. It's a retail game and that's how Blizzard has always operated with their retail products.

Free stuff is pretty cool. I'd be willing to pay but I know there was a huge deal about it.

I hope I can get an invite for January. I've already preordered the special edition...I think so they've got me anyway. Then again I was excited for Battleborne and the beta actually turned me off of it. This looks so good though.

Thank goodness. Though to be honest I actually don't think they need that many more classes to make the roster feel "full."

The beta is now back. And I'm in it.

Also, there is now progression and here are the skins you get from it. They are unlocked through a crate system, similar to how Team Fortress 2 does it.

I'm hearing a lot of people still bitching about how it's impossible to get a play of the game screen as Mercy.

I have found that it's not.

Following up on this, Open-Beta opens up for anyone who preordered the game on May 4th, and probably a week or so later for everyone else.

Willing to bet Tracer in Heroes ends up being free if you buy this game.

Blizzard sent me a Beta key for me and a friend, so if anyone here wants it just say so.

EDIT:

Claimed by Tombstone

So yeah I was wrong, it wasn't a late closed beta invite it was the early open beta invite I got for pre-ordering.

If you pre-ordered before April 29th, you get two codes, so, share that shit. Maybe we can start getting groups together or something.

I pre-ordered mine the 28th, looks like a lot of people that did that are having to wait extra long to get their codes since there are so many pre-orders. Me included.

"Your Overwatch Open Beta Early Access Keys Are Enclosed" is the name of the email.

Top of it is a picture of Hanzo, the archer guy, and there's two codes that are all numbers.

You can play now, if you got a code.

Or you can play 2 days from now, even if you didn't get a code. At around the same time as the servers opened up tonight (7pm Eastern)

Penakoto#1954, my battletag if anyone wants to play with me.

Well, I've played a few hours of this. This is definitely gonna be my new, casual multiplayer game, the thing I play when I wanna kill a few minutes/hours without much commitment needed.

Favorites are definitely Mei, D-Vah and Lucio.

Mei is so fun, and so cute, I'd probably play almost nothing but her if she wasn't bad in some situations, like anytime the fighting is happening in a wide open area. D-Vah is my go to Tank, I like her whole second chance mechanic and it's nice to have decent mobility along with survivability. Lucio is a surprise top pick for me, I love his mobility and I like having a healing aura that can keep the whole team alive passively, and the beat that plays when you power-up is great.

Only problems with the game right now is I feel like Bastion is a too powerful right now, and I hate that there's no "Remember my Account" option when booting the game up, so I just have to put my password in.

Probably gonna miss a lot of the Beta because of work unfortunately. I'm not working Friday Night though, maybe we can get some games in then?
