Overwatch Uprising! No. Sorry, Retribution. Overwatch Retribution.

Last years Uprising, is this years Retribution. Last year we joined baby Tracer, young Cadette Oxton on her first Overwatch mission, taking to the streets of Kings Row with Combat Medic Ziegler, Chief Engineer Lindholm and Lietenant Wilhelm. You captured, defended and pushed objectives. Did we push…? I think we pushed…no, we may have just capped and defended. Regardless! We did stuff. Why did we do the stuff…? For the loot! It’s always for the loot. This year, we’re joining my main, Moira, Jesse McCree (oh la la), Genji (Gengooey) and Reyes (Reaper) on a top secret Blackwatch (the OW … Continue reading Overwatch Uprising! No. Sorry, Retribution.

Overwatch’d

So! Night before last I played some OW comp, solo queue =( you can probably guess just how badly it went. I lost about 100 SR -.- bringing me down to low 2300’s. After a losing streak of 4 matches – purely down to the entire team (myself included) making stupid decisions, not utilising ults and of course, trickling. Also…Bastion, Widowmaker, Hanzo, Genji, Reaper and me as Zen, on attack, didn’t help much. I saw zero point in Mercy-ing, as everyone insta-died regardless of my healing input. So yea. Last night, I go on…and we win our first match, by … Continue reading Overwatch’d

Overwatch? Overthinking & Support your Support!

New season on Overwatch… And woah. It is not going well for me. Usually (as in the past 4 seasons) I rank platinum. Until last night. Went through my placement matches (7 of which with my OW bestie, thank you R!), and honestly…I sucked. Like…I think there was 1 redeeming match where I played semi well as Ana (my support main anyway). Otherwise…seriously, I was doing everything wrong. Making stupid mistakes. I mean…I was being (deliberately) distracted…but…I’m usually good under pressure or while being distracted. So yea. I’ve ended up barely scraping into gold, which sucks. As I need 500+ … Continue reading Overwatch? Overthinking & Support your Support!

Let’s talk about S-E…wait, that’s not how you spell Overwatch…

You do realise that playing a game character doesn’t turn you into that character, right? You don’t magically acquire their attributes or personality. You main Winston – are you a genius ape with an arc pylon? Probably not. You main Jesse? Is it always high noon? Do you crave cigars? Wear a stetson…? Don’t lie to me, these are serious questions. Do you know where I’m going with this yet? Tracer’s gay. ‘Ew. I’m never playing her again.’ – it’s cool, she probably doesn’t want you playing with her anyway. I mean playing on her. I mean playing as her. … Continue reading Let’s talk about S-E…wait, that’s not how you spell Overwatch…

What Overwatch really needs…

I love playing Overwatch, it’s a fun and unique game. I play on console (PS4), but regularly watch twitch PC players, and wish I’d just gotten it for PC… So here’s some of the things it needs on console… You know the callout wheel? I call it the ‘chat without the chat wheel’. What we really need is some new options on that; ‘Thank you, Mei, for blocking our spawn with your ice wall. That really contributed to the team.’ ‘Yes. I can both see and hear that you need healing, but as our 3 (yes, 3) tanks have no … Continue reading What Overwatch really needs…
