I need to jump back into this game and give Overwatch a break.

This game is truly and amalgam of all their other IPs and game play concepts.

Frankly, I'm waiting for the day they drop the "Hearthstone" hero that plays cards as an ability.

Sad that the RTS genre has devolved into shit like this and DOTA.

There are still many RTS games for purists. Don't understand why this is shit.. or DOTA.. aside from the toxic communities.. which considering your post is pretty fucking ironic.

It's shit because it strips out any complexity, though its not surprising base and upgrade management is too hard for the generation pussy to handle. Speaking of toxic, I'm not sure you've ever made a single post without spewing vitrol, much like a shiz jr in a way.

Bitching about the lack of base building and management in a style of game that doesn't require it implies that you completely misunderstand the core concept of the genre.

HotS and DotA aren't RTS games, despite the fact the genre was born out of one.

No they're striped down RTS, minus the strategy portion.

That is pretty ironic calling out my vitrIol but ignoring your constant "contribution" on any topic of how its shit and too stupid for your mighty intellectual aspie mind.

I do post a few post now and then that don't rip your and your ilk a giant bleeding mangina as a response to your rampant idiocy. And frankly, I've never shat on anyone that didn't clearly deserve it.

I have my issues with people like Rommel's posts etc., but mostly that is a difference of opinion. You are just a shithead. Thus my "vitrol".

So by that logic, action rpgs are stripped down RPGs.. and RPGs are stripped down pussy generation'd D&D Games.. which are pussified versions of your imagination.

You're a fucking moron.

This game rules. I hated it till I got good at it and now I can't play it enough. If you hate it, you must suck. ;)

You're really equating ARPGs to Mobas? Lol! ARPGS though generally light on plot are still capable of having some complexity in skill choice, Path of Exile being a good example. Mobas tend to lack it completely. That you just called CRPG's the same stripped down equivalent of a Moba is quite telling, I'm surprised you weren't aborted due to your mental retardation. Having a single digit IQ must make life difficult.

Yeah, my weekends are pretty much consumed these days by HotS and Starcraft 2. I just can't get into the bloodthirsty LoL and Dota scene where one mistake and your team turns on you like rabid dogs. I want to fricking level up too guys, even if I play a support character I shouldn't have to give some other chode last hit and the gold all the time.

I don't really play competitively in either, I own all the heroes and like taking them for a spin since each has their own strengths and weaknesses.

This last weekend I picked up the Kerrigan Cheerleader skin just for kicks, I also have her Ghost skin. So even though I'd stayed away from her since launch (I'm more of a support character player) I felt compelled to finally play her. She was fun as hell! She plays way different than some of my other favorite melee assassin characters like Thrall.

I worry about what will happen when HotS 2.0 comes out and I can't just go buy the skins I want and level up to unlock the colors. I really dislike the lotto box/chase style system and blizzard bloats the fuck out of their boxes.

In SC2 I'm trying to level up all the commanders to 15 and each of them also have different flavors. In this case I'm trying to also level Kerrigan and she's driving me crazy!

Well, they do feature strategy; it just doesn't have a damn thing to do with base management or build order.

They're not RTS games, stripped down or otherwise.

I played HOTS for a week just to hit lvl 12 and get the Diablo3 bonuses. It was painfully boring.

Evil Avatar 04-19-2017 11:48 PM

I like the new loot system in 2.0 because you no longer need to pay cash for skins. I agree that most of the loot will be worthless garbage piled on top of more worthless garbage, but being able to get new character skins without paying cash is a major bonus to me.

I only have about $40 into the game total and all of that is mounts and it was spread out from beta until now. That's not a bad investment. Knowing I might get epic skins or epic mounts just for playing is super cool even if it means getting a lot of stupid banners, emotes and paint sprays in the process.

I also hope it means Blizzard has more incentive to make new skins. Right now there are a lot of characters with only 4 skins total.

The way it used to be.

Yeah, based on my experience with Overwatch?

I'd rather pay for my skins and mounts than have to grind endlessly for boxes on the off-chance I might FINALLY get a skin variant or mount that I want. I'd rather pay $15 for the legendary Tassadar Mech skin than $500 on a bunch of lotto boxes hoping that I get it because I really (really) hate playing Tassadar but I'm a collector so my only option to get the skin is through completely random boxes.

This is a bad, bad system.
