Title: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Grazzy on February 14, 2017, 01:20:41 AM
So,
Moykky and I have been talking about getting some properly structured Overwatch going. Playing in a 6-man group and doing some competitive every now and then.
Or getting a handfull of beers and playing drunk as hell on a saturday evening ;)

But would anyone be interested in playing with us?
We're not aiming to be top 500, and not raging when people fuck up. We just want to have some fun with friends :)
Pref. for people in the 2000 to 3000 rating :)

Post below if you'd be interested, and which day you'd prefer :)

Monday or wednesday evenings is fine for me, or sunday before raid if we try to schedule something proper.

Some random friday or saturday evenings too ofc, if we have enough online :)

I'd be interested but couldn't commit to times so I'd have to be one of those who just plays when I have five min.

Oh, I am also crap at this sort of thing so if you were aiming to increase ranking or whatever I'd probably be best avoiding it at all! :D

You say when? :D

I suggested starting at 20:00 or 21:00. Imo earlier is better.
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Hack on February 20, 2017, 01:47:58 PM
20:00 would be better for me, a hour or so at most means I don't spend all night on the computer and the missis will be happier :)

Post by: Ravager on February 20, 2017, 06:21:28 PM
Yeah im up for it as well. Since ive already played in a pro team for a bit i know some of the problems that arise quickly so can help out a bit. Im up for mondays and wednesdays and usually an hour or so after raids. I am not sure about this week since ive been sick for well over a week and only play when im up to it.

I made signup on the "old" planner :D

Will continue doing that from now on!

If you see Neazy or Zombade or someone else who might of missed the signup, poke them if you see them online tonite!

Last night of the season! Lets go wreck havoc!

If we are going to do competetive we kinda have to follow the meta a bit unless people are extremely good at certain characters. Current tiers are on this site with a nice writeup on why. http://overwatch.metabomb.net/gameplay-guides/overwatch-best-heroes-tier-list-rankings-13-02-2017 .
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Grazzy on February 22, 2017, 05:53:58 PM
The meta wont matter at our rank :P
Hell, not everyone here can play all the heroes :D

But yes, getting some heroes that work well togeather wont hurt :)

Post by: krzysio on February 22, 2017, 06:53:59 PM
Season is over btw :(
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Moykky on February 23, 2017, 10:07:18 AM
Alright, first ice broke! We got some games going!!  Weeeeeeee! :)

I'll do a signup for next wednesday too! And also on Saturday, if people happen to be up for games you can signup, but lets try to keep atleast the wednesdays as the main day for now!

So few things we discussed last nite, first the naming things for better communication. I tried to find some maps with basic call out spots, but all i found was way too detailed ones. Names for those main big buildings and spots would be enough to start with.

https://imgur.com/a/GY0a3#qvxfQfl

If Rav or Grazzy for example already has names for all the main spots in their head we can just try to learn those too as we just play more :D


Then the toon preference, many said last nite that they can play anything but there must be some preference which you enjoy the most and are best with, so we can have atleast some solid roles and those who are are more versatile can fill in the roles we need then.

Also to help us decide (or Grazzy the shot caller), if we want to switch mid game, who would maybe be the best choice for the switch :)


Some kind of preference order for me, that i feel like i could play a bit, from best to worse.

Ana, Soldier, Hog, Zenyatta, Lucio, Rein

With the rest im equally bad :)

Post by: Grazzy on February 23, 2017, 02:53:09 PM
Think we souldnt overcomplicate it. I mean we'll be playing at low ranks anyway :P

Also, my point on ''meta''

I had a lot of fun yesterday playing with you! However, i thought our competetive approach will be more... casual :D

I usually play what is needed but the order will look something like:

Zarya, Ana, D.va, Mercy, Mei :|, Phara, Soldier, rest tanks, rest healers, rest dpses, def champions.
Basically, i play tanks and healers 'cos it's a most common need.

What is more, i think we should look out when we read about tier lists and "meta" because these are 2 different things.

And i like this video Grazzy!
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Grazzy on February 23, 2017, 04:29:14 PM
You should check out videos. They got stuff about everything :) Alot of good information in there, for all players. Casual to grand master ranked
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Moykky on February 24, 2017, 01:13:22 AM
Ok guys, dont take me wrong, i wrote long post, but not trying to make it complicated, quite the opposite! ;D

About the video, and its point, i completely agree.

Thats one of the reasons why i asked the toon preference too, about what they said on the video. So we know what people would rather play and what they are good on, right? And not blindly follow something that might be best setup with the best players in the world playing it. It's more about playing together and make the comp work, what ever the setup is. But usually comp needs healer and tanks, sometimes switches are needed too :)

Making the little list doesnt tie anyone to anything either! :)

For example on Kryzsio list tehre is Zarya and D.VA, 2 classes i cant or dont want to play at all. I quess i dont have to do any examples how this is usefull, not complicated ;P


And about more casual approach, if i dont spam signups we will never be online at same time for games, since we barely have the 6 people who were interested. It would be nice to get games going like once a week or so ;p
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Grazzy on February 24, 2017, 12:39:40 PM
That is true, Play what you want :)

And the signups are still casual as hell :) Keep doing that

Aight, only 4 signups for tonite, but lets still try and play some, its not active season going either so just for fun :)

I'll try and get atleast 1 more! If anyone has a friend who wants to join ask around! :)

Anyone still playing Overwatch? I watched the new Overwatch League and I got hyped up for the game again. It was so well done. Did anyone see the broadcast?
Title: Re: The world could always use more heroes!
Post by: Moykky on January 15, 2018, 07:47:13 AM
Hi Lentz, yeh we have a bunch of people who played almost daily. Past couple weeks a bit less though.. ;p

Dont recognize name Lentz, thats a new forum account too it seems. Do you have active toon you play WoW with?   ::)

There is the Discord link under the raid planner on the main page, and in there is a shooter games channel and voice for OW. Easier to communicate with those :p
