minor note. when you are playing Orisa you can just spam his shield corners all the time. that way when Zarya bubbles your projectile weapons shots are already not being shot at where the bubble might appear. you can also take a few shots at his center every 7 seconds or so to juke Zarya into using her bubble early thinking she is about to get charge. then Zarya wont have the bubble for her rein when he wants to charge and it forces him to play more passively. This apply's to most projectile heros as well, like Zen. but a single Pharah rocket or Junkrat bomb probably gives her to much charge to make it worth it. Hit scan hero's can do this at anytime. shot center every 7 seconds or so, stop shooting center as soon as you see her turn to cast the bubble.

So what are common "playstyles" then? How do i determine what my natural playstyle is and maybe adjust when i need too? Can I master them all? I've always loved playing Dva. I like that she's so versatile, has mobility, and can help teammates. Other people have described me as and opportunistic/pressure Dva player. I like to go in with another person and work with them to get kills and come out alive or attack people that are getting low on health or have all there abilities on cooldown. I find i struggle when my team plays very passively and no one is willing to make a move with me. I just end up poking with them and that's very bad for a Dva player. i end up begging someone to work with me so we can create a 2v1 and pressure the enemy team. I've been low diamond forever. I'm friends with higher ranked players than myself and a extremely agro top 500 Dva player. He's told me my playstyle works really well in Masters and above but that i'll never get there until i learn to play a much more agro/playmaker Dva style. Which he says is much easier to climb to masters with. To make matters worse, for the last two seasons I've been stuck playing Main tank simply because no one is willing and I dont think it suits me at all. I've gotten so tired of being CC'd to death as Rein and then blamed for being a "bad Rein" that i'm pretty much ready to just stop playing tank all together and switch to DPS or just one trick Dva and accept that i'm going to lose a lot of matches playing solo tank Dva or just switch to Tracer/Sombra and be done with tanking all together.

I'm honestly thinking about switching off tanks as well. I like the role, but constantly being stunned to death is becoming to much for me. Dva is the only tank I still enjoy playing. Whats stopping me is the DPS i enjoy the most are Tracer and Pharah, and yet every team I play on asks me to switch to Widow or Hanzo and I care very little about playing snipers. I like characters that are fast and mobile and can zip around the battle field.

It's because of Brig and Hanzo. Brig has made every close range dps lives very hard. This pushes people to play Hanzo/Widow/Junkrat/Pharah. Characters that can do all their work outside Brig's stun/insta death range. But Pharah dies to Widow/Hanzo and Junkrat is ineffective vs. snipers. So that just leaves you with Widow/Hanzo at high level play. Flankers, such as Genji, Tracer, and Reaper, who you could potentially use to counter Widow are not played because they dont want to die to Brig. Dive tanks such as Winston and Dva, both effective against Widow are also destroyed by both Brig and Hanzo. So in the end, your only real way to deal with Widowmaker is to have the better Widow or Hanzo on your own team. Its not that widow is broken. Before Brig was introduced and Hanzo buffed, There were many ways to deal with Widowmaker if you didn't have a skilled Widow of your own. Winston, Dva, Tracer, and Genji could all put considerable pressure on them. Now that Brig and Hanzo have taken those options away, matches are decided by who has the better snipers.

i'll try and post a vid tomorrow if i can. D.va is what i play. I'm frequently a reluctant Rein because no one will ever play him.

My girlfriend likes it when people look at her boobs or nipples. she says it makes her feel better about being an A cup.

Games: (Overwatch)

Hand Preference: (Right, or ambidextrous)

Budget: (+/- $50, flexible, just give me your best recommendations lol )

Hand Size: (if i measure from the tip of my finger to where my palm meets my wrist i get about 19.6-19.7 CM, or 7.75 Inches.)

Grip: (unsure, i've always used a claw grip because mice are too small for me to use any other grip. my fingers are too long for them.)

Weight: (Light, but it matters little to me.)

Sensitivity: (I currently play at 2.5-3 at 1600 dpi)

Additional Details:

I currently own a Razer Naga Hex v.2 and my hand and wrist always feel uncomfortable. when i hold it with my hand relaxed, my wrist wrests on the mouse pad and drags as I move the mouse, and my fingers hang off the buttons while my thumb extends past the side buttons. So i end up kind of crunching my hand up so my fingers line up and after a while my wrist starts aching. Like, with a claw grip, the back of the mouse doesn't touch my palm and i'm holding the mouse in place with just my finger tips? it causes me to use my wrist to move the mouse when aiming when i'd rather use my arm more.

I would go to a store and try out different mice to see how they feel but i live in the middle of nowhere so electronic stores are about 2 hours away from me. also, all the interesting mice seem to be sold online more than in stores. I wish i could find a mouse that i could somehow adjust and experiment with till i found something truly comfortable but Mad Cats are very expensive and currently out of business. Supposedly, an new company will be selling them again soon, but i don't know if they are any good or not. What companies that sell similar products, or adjustable mice?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

i'd consider them. but they are currently unsupported and out of business. i was wondering if any other company did the same thing, maybe in a different way. but i have yet to find one.

to expand on the other user who recommended the Logitech G Pro I would recommend the Logitech 203 over it as its cheaper and just as good, unless you really want a braided cable.

i use the 203 and it is idea for me I have larger hands than you and use a claw grip pro/con its light and small mouse

if you want a larger mouse i would recommend a Logitech G403 its heavier and bigger if you find most mice too small this may be better but its not ideal for a claw grip

price is flexible. all the mice you guys recommend seem good but i'm worried i'll buy it and find i don't like how it fits my hand. that's why i was interested in adjustable mice. but i dont know of any that exist.

i think the most important thing to start with is that she just needs to play hero's she enjoys playing. have her try out all the different heros she finds interesting. then ask her to pick a few that she could play all day and not get bored. not being bored, having fun, is the best way to get her to focus on improving with those characters. for me its d.va. there are many heros i like to play. but d.va is the one hero i never get tired of playing. sure enough, she's become my best character skill wise.

As per title. A widow/dps main, a Dva/tank/support, and a Mercy main would like to train vs people of higher rank than ourselves to improve and become better at the game. All of us peak around 3200. How do we find scrims where we can make this happen? We want to face people and play with people we can learn from. It seems like the best way to improve is to play vs people that are better than you and might be able to give you small tips. Honestly, I'd really like to try it. I don't care if I lose. It just seems like i'm not really getting any better and this might be more efficient time wise than just playing hours of comp in hopes i'll pick up on something new.

I know a President isn't King. Trump seems to be doing all he can that's within his power to make the economy better and deal with a shit congress. I'm just going to vote in every primary and election, always in favor of what I think helps Trump get more done. I'd be happy if 90% of congress was forced to retire to be honest. Its time for new leadership.

to be fair. you have to have a real high IQ to understand Pepe the Frog. : )

Blizzards been going downhill for a while now. Guess they've made so much money they don't feel a need to keep trying to be winners. keen on becoming whiners instead .

Nothing is rigged...your system is rigged not the drivers. Never had problem. Especially the 18.xx.xx drivers are ON POINT. Go to the Nvidia yeah..they have no bugs /s hahahahahahhahahaha a hahahahah stupid marketing kids

i have a rx480 and i've had so many problems with AMD graphics drivers and overwatch that i'll also be switching to Nvidia as soon as gpu prices drop back down. bring the hate. if AMD wants my money they need to make a better product. Their CPU's seem good now, so i'll buy one, but i'm leaving the gpu to Nvidia.

One other minor reason may be that the Xbox and Playstation are starting to get a little long in the tooth and now a budget PC can beat them graphics wise pretty easily. since most games are designed to run well on the PS4 and xbox at 30 frames per second, buildit a PC that can run the same game at higher settings at 60 frames or higher is enough for most people to be happy with.

its probably because of crypto mining. not many people are buying high end or even mid range cards right now. they are just holding on to the older high end cards and waiting for prices to drop back down to sane levels. so, if you are a reviewer and need views, you review and praise the low end hardware budget gamers are actually buying. like right now, i would have no problem recommending one of AMD's APU's but i'd tell anyone to wait before buying a RX580 or Nvidia 1060 or higher. also, if you're not buying a high end or mid range card, why bother buying a high end cpu when you can just wait it out and upgrade everything together as new cpu's/gpu's come out this year.

Trilby is somewhat lesser known but does decent long reviews of gameplay. you could also put a few games on youtube and post links to this forum asking for VOD reviews. one thing that helped me climb was picking a few heros that i never get tired of playing and making them my "mains". obviously i play other things as well. but by playing the characters i thought were fun to play i was more motivated in matches and won more. for me it was D.va and after that Orisa/Rein, Moira/Zen.

Do you know how long the turn around times on the VOD's posted on the forums are?

no idea. i mean. you're depending on people just doing it for free so its not like you can put a time frame on it.

As per title. I play tanks/supports and would like to practice sombra/tracer at lower ranks. I have a spare account i would like to throw my placements and go as low as possible SR wise. but i cant ethically throw matches alone. I'd like to form a 6 stack so we can all throw together. MSG me if interested. Thanks.

Is there any way we could offer to help small countries use DASH as a national currency? it would be good for publicity. many small countries have unstable currencies. we could offer to allow them to use the DASH network either for low cost or for free for a period of time.

I have a Logitech G430. I got it for $35 on amazon. the speakers work well and have good highs, lows, and mid-range. the mic seems to work well and is clear. I'm certain there is better out there, but for $35 its been fantastic. I recommend it to anyone who tells me they can't afford a "decent" headset. Don't know if its for sale in Europe, but if it is i'd check it out.

high plat, low diamond d.va player here. i watched your first video. just a few things i see.

  1. when tracking enemies you're shooting at, make sure your eyes are focused on the enemy target rather than your reticle. this should allow for more consistent tracking.

  2. you are not abusing your ability to take high ground enough. you have a lot of mobility and any time you can take high ground and put yourself 10m away from your target rather than shooting far away you should. when you were on defense, there was a lot of times you could have done that during your defense of 2nd and 3rd point. remember. it's not just something you do, do it frequently. if you can't decide if you should are not, ask yourself if you would be safer firing at them within 10 meters while in front of the enemy, to the left or right, and if it would help if you were ABOVE them. the safest spot in front,left,right or front,left,right on high ground that you can hit them at 10 meters is usually the best spot.

  3. keep track of which enemy characters have used their own mobility abilities. you are VERY mobile yourself and you can take advantage of it every time thiers is on cool down. like, the best time to dive moira is after you see her use her shift. The same applies to any ability that can stun you. the best time to dive anna is after you see her use her sleep dart. or you see hanzo use his scatter arrow. the only reason i mention 2 and 3 is because i think you might be spending too much time shooting at the enemy formation at a distance greater than 10 meters. i do this too much myself to be honest.

  4. your d.va bombs are good and you can take advantage of that even more. launch them in the middle of team fights or when you see orisas shield is on cooldown and she cant move it for a while. I saw you launch your d.va bomb on 3rd point attack right after you saw rein's shield fail. that was a good move and got you play of the game.

  5. always be aware of which of d.va's many roles you're filling at the moment. A)charging into and killing everything that tries to touch your supports B) killing pharah or protecting your team form her. C) killing flankers. D) being a flanker or dive buddy to someone on your team. like that guy playing winston in your game. diving in with someone else or being a flanker buddy is probably the most fun part of playing d.va. : )

last stuff. on defense you playing d.va was a great idea. don't care what the winston/hog player was saying. dive bastion as d.va with as many team members as you can. your DM will absorb dmg better than any other tank could. even if its just two seconds. your junkrat should have been diving with you onto the bastion and helping you guys break the shield more. Only reason you guys struggled a bit on atk was because lucio/zen is pretty weak healing. also, you and winston needed to stay just a little bit more together so that you were damaging targets at the same time.

Thanks for posting the vid. i love watching these. seeing other people play helps me see things i should try and do myself. i'm always trying to get better too.

I currently own a somewhat old mini-itx i5 with DDR3 and a RX480. But I have to admit, its performance is pretty nice. Plays games like overwatch on ultra at 144hz at 1080p. Plays most games on at least medium at fast frame rates. I can't help but think that if AMD would release an APU as powerful as my PC, it would just fly off the shelves. If only for its simplicity and constant performance. "Ryzen 3580", "Ryzen 5580", what would it take for these to become a reality?

IMHO a APU like this is the really the end goal for the AMD in the consumer market. Just needs the tech to accomplish it

Thank you. I believe so as well. with AMD making both the CPU and GPU, it would be a good market for them. Millions of mid range gaming machines sold, more affordable than buying and intel cpu and nvidia gpu separately. In fact, I think a big reason AMD agreed to make the PS4 and Xbox was to gain experience and build a department for making larger more powerful APU's before moving into the PC market with them.

16 points · 7 months ago

only way to do it is intel "G" series style, with an huge mcm package and a discrete cpu, gpu and video memory on it.

and as "G" series it would costs a lot so wouldnt be sealable at cheap "apu" prices.

so, considering that AMD is an "for profit" firm and not some onlus, would be right for them to do that? would they profit from it?

I think it depends on how expensive their "infinity fabric" tech is. If they can splice together a cpu, ddr5 chips, gpu, and hbm affordably, such a product would be both viable and desirable. It would definitely make semi-custom motherboards for vendors simple and easy to make. You could build a mid range PC about the size of PS4 or smaller.

in this thread. people that just want an affordable PC, hoping these APU's are NEVER going to be profitable for miners.

As per title. I have an Alt account I use for practice. I would like to derank it as low as possible so I can practice Tracer and other dps. It's not to smurf, I normally play tanks and supports and want to practice my aim on a character I truly enjoy playing. Would like to drop to low gold or lower. Bronze if i could swing it. I just want to group up with 5 other people looking to do that same. I feel it would be unethical to throw games or even go tryhard with Tracer at my current rank and lose people games because of my lack of skill. If all goes well, maybe we can six stack for next seasons placements as well.
