Twitch was sold exclusive streaming rights for several tournaments but not for OWL. Some Twitch exec said they were still negotiating the deal for OWL.
Because of Twitch still not agreeing to Blizzards demands they are now streaming on MLG to showcase their product and what they are capable of.

@massdebater
We're never going to get a comic of that size for a while. I have a suspicion that part of the story is being held off for bigger projects. For one thing, there is a new project Blizzard is working on and they took many of the Overwatch team away to work on it, which is why the team now is a little under 100 people.
There is also Activision always saying in business reports about how interested they are in making a full length Overwatch movie seeing as Warcraft did so well (in China). But all of these are far off pipe dreams.

In terms of right now, your best bet is to wait for the inevitable Morrison and Reyes origin cinematic.

Twitch only exists because of League of Legends.
If someone purchased the streaming rights, Twitch would lose half their traffic.

OWL is supposed to have 100k viewers minimum meaning it would boost Twitch's traffic quite a lot and that converts into subscriptions and ad revenue

@Methshot
every single healing ult is always going to charge faster than other ults
and charge rate doesnt make anything overpowered, its a symptom of other problems with the character
ie junkrat can charge his ult in 20 seconds because he does WAY too much damage way too easily, and lowering that charge rate wont affect the ease by which he can shoot walls to receive free kills

Chu strawman
I'm just going to remind you of how much /owg/ has warped your brain. The Chu strawman is a meme generated by the retards here and didn't start until the Gency/Pharamercy debacle (unsurprisingly). You're being influenced from the fallout of that ass pain, and don't act like it ever went away.

Why? Metzen, Chu, and Jeff have said that at release there was no lore. It was promotional images and Metzen jerking off to his OC. The comic was written so early on that once it was finished it was a fucking mess. Jeff likes to justify dumping that work with giving the community more power to speculate and create their own stories, but we know this is just a showman's excuse.

The truth is the comic would have had to be retcon'd and you would have complained about. You would still be complaining about a 100 page mess of a story. Metzen didn't fucking write anything coherent. All the promotional "story" images were made to NOT be canon. The "story" was just for show when the game released. The focus was not to add any damn story, just characters loosely tired together with interesting personalities and nothing fucking else.

Why do you think Chu got to be head writer? Because the belief was that a story didn't matter in a FPS. For the first time, Blizzard wanted to make a game that didn't have one. Then Chu writes some before match interactions and suddenly people won't get off his dick. But they had nothing to show for it. That is why were are here now with the lore. It's taken this lore to try and move things in a semi coherent directions. And you fucking apes think:
"We could have had a story! Metzen ooga! Chu booga!"

You're delusional.

The other team is making a new game. Likely a spin off Overwatch get to make more cash off the still crazy popularity over this game.

I don't understand your logic. If they were just working on an on overwatch spin off, then they wouldn't put that in the job posting, they would just say overwatch.
Because I don't know why you keep bringing it up when I said Blizzard has reformed a new team away from the main Overwatch team on a new "secret" game.
Because they have a whole bunch of dead games right now. It makes way more sense that they are going to build some new IPs then just make a spin off game. Can't solely rely on overwatch.

Keep your objective numbers up. Hog has the least objective time and elims of all tanks, but still higher than every non-tank in the game except Lucio.

Ultimate usage stats are also critical for tank SR gains, but if you're a good tank then you already have these numbers. If you don't but want more SR anyway, then git gud.

Nobody in this game knows what a flank is. A flank is when your unit is engaged head on with the enemy and then an element of that unit goes around the side to encircle the enemy. It is not going behind enemy lines and trying to win the battle alone

Crazy_Nice

@JunkTop
being a "flanker" doesn't change shit about that, if you are playing genji/tracer you should still be in the thick of things in teamfights instead of playing your own game away from teammates

i often see on my diamond smurf these tracer players who think they are some sort of assassin running around in the enemy backline trying to solo enemy supports when 90% of the time the place you should be is being part of the bigger fight with rest of your team

They should try to replace resurrect with another strong ability, it's so fucking strong and requires next to no skill to pull off. They could just let her give herself and/or a targeted teammate invulnerability for a few seconds, that's a powerful ability without being completely' broken.

I mained her last season and she's my 3rd most played this one but I'm honestly sick of her. Aside from annulling other people's work well done, I'm fucking sick of shitters depending on res to undo their fuck ups. Res allow them to play bad the character they are using and get away with it.

It's because the current meta, for the most part, is based on mobility and speed as well as high damage. It's hard to defend against that.

Attackers also tend to have advantage on first point because the spawns are closer.

So, this is how the Support class is right now.

Ana: does everything except tank with great DPS, good single-target sustained healing and great AoE healing with healing boost to boot, the strongest CC ability in the game, can shut down all enemy healing, and has potentially the strongest ultimate in the game.

Lucio: has incredible personal mobility and an excellent way to get his team into the fight faster and dodge more easily, mediocre sustained AoE healing with good burst AoE healing, an excellent disruptive ability, and a mediocre Ultimate.

Mercy: the best single-target healer, has a good damage booster, excellent mobility, self-healing, the most powerful ability in the game with Resurrection, and the most powerful Ultimate in the game.

Moira: decent single-target healing, amazing group and burst healing, pathetic single-target DPS, average AoE DPS, great mobility, and a good Ultimate

Symmetra: no healing at all, strongest and easiest DPS in the game, Turrets are good for warning and disorienting enemies, mediocre flying barrier, one Ultimate is excellent for getting the team back to the action and the other is an average health booster.

Zenyatta: mediocre single-target healing, great DPS, excellent +30% damage boost abilitiy, and an amazing AoE healing Ultimate.

If we get any more Supports, how could they heal/support in ways that differentiate them from what we have now?

That sounds too much like the Return To Castle Wolfenstein Medic class. I like the medpack idea, though, I've suggested a medical Omnic who heals by dropping its own medpacks. For abilities maybe one is a tag you can attach to an ally that boosts their attack and reduces damage taken by 15% for a few seconds and a tag for enemies that reduces their healing and Ultimate charge by 50%?

Support that works by giving a damage buff around him and grants extra ammo/free reloads as well as turns some of someone's normal health into armour as his abilities.

Can work well with quite a few comps whilst still not stepping over any other heroes shoes/making his own niche.

Fix Mercy before adding more healers and take Symmetra out of Support and put her in Defense.

Was pretty fun, Uber needs to cast more. Needs less breaks, there's not enough to talk about inbetween because it's mostly mirror matches. MercyMeta ruins the hype because important picks that aren't Mercy don't matter. Needs to move to Twitch because MLG-chat is slow and boring.

Defensive/ambush healer who uses tentacles to maneuver around the map. They can climb walls, hang onto ceilings, use their tentacles as a shield to block incoming damage for themselves and teammates behind them.
Tentacles absorb dead enemies similar to old reaper and distribute the health between you an nearby team-mates automatically.
Ult adds a multiplier to this effect for a short period.
Tentacles and grab nearby enemies and slam them into a wall or the ground, or toss them away.

It's really not okay for a character to be so simple and easy to play, yet still be so important to have throughout all the competitive ranks. Who thought Mercy was a good idea for a hero???

I've had an idea for a Life Tether ability, similar to Roadhog's Hook but works on allies and pulls them to the user's location with the same range and a lock-on when the cursor is on the ally. Maybe also surround the ally with a weak barrier for a second while being pulled.

I would actually be pretty pissed if we have another "coming out" story for Overwatch this Christmas because it would solidify some dumb standard that every Christmas we need a queer reveal of some kind.

Despite that, if they go through with making Reyes gay and do not show him with any interest with anyone how do you think people will handle it? Obviously shippers are going to start acting like R76 is canon but how would /owg/ stand on that probability? Would you think it as incriminating evidence? Would that make you angrier? (Obviously you going to get a little angry in general right?)

@Sir_Gallonhead
@Flameblow
One of Reaper's problems is that despite being a CQC hero, a lot of his deaths are a result of being chased closely while in wraith form and killed before he can even act, because in all likelihood he wraithed just short of dying. Notably, this is what makes his matchup with roadhog so much less favorable for him when it should be the other way around.
This accomplishes two things
1. Dissuades enemies from chasing or risk eating some damage
2. Allow him to heal some off of his passive if they do chase
Of course the obvious argument here is, "well then people could just keep their distance." But they could do that anyway.
All this adds is a little more depth that could make enough of a difference where otherwise there wouldn't be any, without completely breaking him.

People can still chase him without going through him and he moves a little faster when he's in wraith form. It's not going to dissuade anything and if anything it just sounds like a dumb ideal in general.

oh you mean the INLAID WEAKNESS OF THE SPECIFIC ABILITY IS BEING EXPLOITED
OH NO
better make genji reflect immune to beam weapons, its too flawed of an ability because people are capable of exploiting the fact that it has a weakness

reapers issue has literally nothing to do with him being punished for overextending
thats just idiots getting laid out, unfortunately inconsistently, by the teams and players with the wherewithal to recognize that situation and actually play correctly around the character
his usage is low because hes an incredibly niche character which means there are countless situations which lead to him being just a bad pick
like it has nothing to do with his abilities being bad or needing buffs, his abilities are great, but a lack of broad utility detracts from his strengths as a close range specialist and make him frequently feel like an incomplete character
like for example, if theres a pharah in the air, what can reaper do about it
if theres a tracer zoning him out and pinning him down, what can reaper do about it
if the enemy has any ranged characters at all, how is reaper meant to combat that at all

giving him guaranteed damage at close range doesnt help with that
like its just dumb, you not at all encouraging his survivability, youre facilitating him using wraith form as a last hit option with literally no means to play around it aside from playing a character with mobility superior to his, discouraging its use as an escape option and instead pushing the idea that he should be suiciding in rather than positioning himself to where he can properly escape, making him frustrating to play against while simultaneously encouraging braindead play
