I think you mean another character. Symmetra is female, has the shield boost for allies and can place mini turrets. 

 

Yeah, I meant Zenyatta, I got confused between my nonsense-word 3-syllable support character names.

Played about 5 hours yesterday, was planning on doing a few more hours than that but my copy didn't arrive from Amazon until 4pm :rolleyes:

 

Anyway, absolutely loved what I've played so far, not really sure why I was a bit put-off by it in the last few hours of the Beta now to be honest, I've just been having a ton of fun today really.

 

Played a few games with randoms earlier yesterday afternoon and then yesterday evening went on with Duck and DC (joined by Hendo later on, and spotted Ed on the opposition team on my last game). Tried out a few characters I didn't bother with in the Beta (Winston, Pharah, Reaper, Roadhog, Junkrat, Genji), liked Pharah and Winston but don't think the rest were for me really, although Roadhog and Junkrat are both super handy if well utilised.

 

Its just been such a blast again, I don't really know what has changed in my mind between the end of the Beta and yesterday, but I just felt it was so damn fun and I was having such a great time with it like I did at the beginning of the beta.

 

Got up to Level 10, hoping to play much more of it tomorrow.

There's so many characters that it's pretty overwhelming.

I did the training in the beta but is there a good way of trying out different characters or is it just a case of jumping in and trying them out?

 

Haven't learnt any names as yet but I'm liking the big bastard shield hammer thumping dude, the Asian sniper with the dragon move and the angel healer. Though I need to remember to try and stay back as the healer and hide a bit more.

I quite enjoyed using Reaper last night.  Finding a place that gives you a line of sight to teleport behind the enemy group can really whittle down their numbers.  I'm not great with his super, though.  Not like the guy using him on the other team who always seemed to be pulling it off.

Had some good rounds on this today, some not so good.

I'm enjoying the shield tank guy, love pinning people against the wall and being useful putting the shield up with everyone behind me.

One round we were missing offensive characters so I went as the dual pistols (or possibly shotguns?) guy who can go invisible/invulnerable. I like him a lot.

Yeah had a few games with Jim Sterling and Hendo earlier, bloody good fun, some good games, some frustrating ones where we got pwned , had one really good game with Henzo and got the Player of the Game for the first time, also had a really good game with Zenyatta against Hendo and one as Bastion too.

 

Was playing support a lot too, seems not as many folks wanna heal as much as the Beta, so played Lucio, Mercy and Zenyatta, had a few games behind Hendo as Mercy and he was Reinhardt, very handy combo.

I'm loving Junkrat. He has my new favourite animation when jumping and seeing the flap on the front of his gun drop down. Beautiful.

Im still unsure about dropping the full amount on this, and im not sure why because I quite enjoyed the beta. Mirrors edge is on the horizon too...

 

Is there anything different in the full game from the beta?

I don't think so. The beta was the full game minus the CG video and fixes, as far as I'm aware.

There might be some extra skins or sprays added. But there's no new characters or maps. 

 

Ranked/Seasons all be be added in a few weeks I think. 

 

Best thing I've seen in Overwatch so far. Blakey placing a teleporter in our base that teleports us all the way..to our base. :facepalm:

I feel like the beta actually sort of makes me not want to play this in a weird way because ive played it now and ive got basically everything the game has to give. I feel really bad for feeling that way too because the idea of an open beta is great and the idea of not locking certain things away in a game like this is also great...

Of all developers, Blizzard have the most tendency to support their games so there should be loads of new stuff as time goes on.

I do love it but add to the list of games that shouldn't be online only.

Without a net connection you literally can do nothing but you should at least be able to do training and bot matches.

Had some frustrating games yesterday afternoon, with people being idiots mainly.

 

For a few games I was stuck with this bunch of random's that didn't know their arse from their elbow, they refused to be healer for a while, and then when one of them did select a Healer they switched half-way through which made me have to switch into a Healer.


Then a few games later this same bunch just ran off randomly towards the enemy team everytime, without any attempt whatsoever at protecting the base, so bloody infuriating. Another on King's Row they were just standing watching the opposition team take our base :lol: god it pissed me off.

 

Had some fun games with (and against) Sam yesterday evening though (sorry I didn't have my mic on).

 

Had one awesome game as reaper on Ilios, we lost but I got 33 kills which is my highest ever on Overwatch so far I think, on one of the rounds I snuck into the enemy base, used my 'Die, Die, Die'' special, killed everyone, died myself and then Sam revived them all as Mercy I was spewing :lol:

 

Had an awesome game as Bastion too on Dorado, sat perfectly on a hill waiting for the payload to come up and just proceeded to pick everyone off as they came through the door, took them a while to suss me out and Genji eventually slaughtered me, that wasn't before I got a 14 kill streak though :D

 

Had one absolutely hilarious game too where everyone decided to be Bastion for shiggles :lol: I couldn't stop laughing, I knew we'd get battered but the absurdity of the situation just tickled me.
