Post Overwatch!!! <<Blizz FPS>>
So... what is your favorites? what's your tactics?

I don't have much tactics to share but here's what i got..

McCree (or what ever is the name of that cowboy) - with his ultimate you need to take a long look on as many enemies before you shot, you will see a skull on them when the damage would be enough to kill them.
also, when he does his roll, he also reloads his gun... and... use flash-bangs often! and reload whenever you can, do not be caught with less then 6 bullets in your revolver.

Pharah - if you are going on the attack, be wary of turrets, when you locate one, drop to the ground till it is down. you can blow it up quite easly with a few well placed missiles in it's proximity. also, try not to hover at the same hight too long, you are just giving the snipers an easier job. also... sometimes you can act as a sniper too, stay back (on the ground) and support your friends with AoE damage where they are fighting. if you are dog fighting other pharah, try to make them fly next to a wall, then fire at them so they get the indirect damage.

Hanzo the Japanese archer guy - a good use of your ultimate is on cornered defensive groups, you can also fire it trough walls if you are close enough to the enemies. also note that at long range, your bow hits between the upper and mid circle. give your group the eye of the dragon sonic arrow as often as it is off cooldown, this is a tactical weapon that will help everyone. you are no match for anyone at close range... you can at most get lucky, try to run up walls if you can, and if you have to, try the scatter arrow (which should be aimed at the ground and not of walls mostly).

overall tactics, try to remember the location of the closest healthpack you saw on your way... it will be handy to go get healed then come back to the fighting renewed.
If you are escorting a payload, use it for cover and fight from behind it whenever you can, this will also make the payload move. if you hear the rip-tire coming, it's time to get some height.

that's about all i have... your turn.

also, you have 2 location for damage... Head, and everything else... and i do mean everything, hitting a leg, or even the weapon of an enemy who is hiding behind a corner is considered a body shot and will do normal damage...

Mostly playing Reinhardt right now. Always a credit to the team when it comes to payload. Protect the little ones while pushing the cart, sending fire strikes to harass the enemy every time it's off cooldown, and hammer anyone silly enough to come too close. Oh, and suicidal charges off a cliff are always good for a funny play of the game.

Lucio's my go-to, "I guess nobody wants to heal so I'll do it" support and Pharah is my main pick for offense, despite me being embarrassingly inaccurate with her rockets.

Oh, I've tried Mercy a bit... surprisingly her little pistol shots very accurate and fast, so, though it's not a big hitter you can use it to finish of people (reaper comes to mind from last night) and to eliminate these annoying turrets.
also, keep healing... buffing damage seems pale in comparison to healing.

and did a bit of bastion (both on attack and on defense missions) I found it fun to locate yourself a little back from the main combat action, and move your position every time you have been revealed (after totally destroying them!).

I thought I would like Bastion, but it ended up being far too static to my tastes. Mercy and Reinhardt setting up with him on payload does make for a fun combination, though. Damage boosted Bastion is just ridiculous.

Mind you, it only works a few times before people wise up. That, or a really disorganized opposing team.

so far as i have experienced Bastion sucks on defense missions because people expect him...
take him when you are on the attack... that's when you get people off guard!

I got favorite one from each category.

Soldier: 76: The versatility of 76 is what makes him for me. I can pretty much one shot snipers or supports with helix rocket, the pulse rifle is accurate even at longer ranges, and if I get hurt, I can just drop the healfield and be up and at it again. Then there's also the autoaim ultimate!

Junkrat: I luffs dem explody bitz. Area denial with just his main weapon, versatile uses for the landmine-thing (my favorite is blasting Pharah downwards from the sky by blasting it in mid air), beartrap for chokepoints, and the ultimate again is amazing if placed right.

Roadhog: Hooks for days! Great way to end ultimates prematurely. Selfheal for some extra survivability when the healer croaks, and the ulti can be a real lifesaver in point defenses, attack or defend. Both left and right click are so powerful, right click especially if aimed at head at right distance. If it explodes right in front of their face, Roadhog can pretty much oneshot even a tank. The only downside that I have for this guy is the 4-shot clip. I always forget to reload before hook.

Zenyatta: Now some people say that Zenyatta sucks since he can be bodyshot to death by Widowmaker. To those people I say, NAY! He just needs to play smartly! Hide behind obstacles and tanks, take potshots with left click (which does amazing damage btw), charge right click behind corner, peek out and launch them (again, amazeballs damage). Discord orb makes tanks soft like jelly, and Zenyatta can drop them like flies! And the ultimate! Perfect for clutch plays and/or point defense maps to stop or enable cap.

HNNNG THIS GAME IS SO GOOD.

Yeah first FPS I've put this many hours in this short time in the past 10+ years. TF2 is fun too but I think "Blizzard hype" got me on this thing.

I havent enjoyed playing offense or support players so far. Soldier 76 is simple and straightforward and have chosen him few times trying to break through something with the team.

Favourite by far is Junkrat. I got very fond of him in the open beta weekend and enjoyed grenade launcher before in FPS games too. And the mine is just awesome because of its both utility and offensive abilities.

Torbjörn feels sometimes boring but have gotten kicks out of well placed turrets just taking out enemies while I'm running around with my little feet shooting with the bolt gun.

Roadhog and Reinhardt are my favourite tanks. As Brorn said latter one I enjoy playing very much in payload attacks and own death doesnt matter if you manage to charge even one player down in to the abyss 8) I like Winston's abilities but he feels very squishy, especially against medium-close range targets.

I've sniped more with Widowmaker. I feel more comfortable with a scope. Though RYUU GA WAGA TEKI FUCK YOU is propably the most annoying ultimate. Not dangerous if you havent happened to block yourself in corners and this bastard dragon comes through walls.

Zenyatta feels interesting but I feel too squishy with it. Most likely because of my own playstyle and I tend to wander too far in the frontlines.

My favorite is by far playing harass on Tracer when the map/team composition allows for it.

For defense maps I usually go for Widowmaker or Symmetra depending on what others are playing and on defense as Tracer, Reinherdt or a healer on attack (except for Gibraltar where I usually take Widowmaker to get out of the tower).

For capture the point maps I usually play Tracer or Lucio depending on the team.

Finishing off with a nice little video that was also show cased in the launcher.

I'm level 43 I think. Don't think there is a max level. At 100 it resets and you get a star under your portrait. Think the highest I've seen on anyone is 142.

well, technically the level isn't impotent, it is pure cosmetic thingies.
but when you group up with Gonthar, and a couple of level 100+... you can tack the backseat, kick back and watch from afar *winks*

anyhow, feel free to befriend me on battlenet so we can share some games.
my battlenet tag is Kalendra#2304

There's already portraits up to something like 1500, I think? But I also recall reading that Blizz intends there to not be a level cap.
