THAT is amazing.

This, on the other hand, is truly terrible (major spoilers for Red Dead Redemption).

See I really want Overwatch because it looks genuinely fun but my PC can't run it because the graphics card is so bad that a Blizzard game, which from what I've heard are notoriously low-spec, won't run on minimal, according to a few quick google searches.

Basically, is it worth getting a new graphics card for? I need one anyway, but should I prioritise it for this?

I have to upgrade my desktop's CPU and GPU to run it properly on there, otherwise it looks like the original Doom. Have to stick to my father's lenovo for now.

So yes IT, it's worth upgrading for.

How will the matchmaking work in this new system? And will there be a solo queue?

Jeff Kaplan: Yeah, we're going to go out the gate with what we call a 'dynamic queue'. This is what we use for quick play right now, meaning you can queue in any size that you want. So if you want to queue by yourself, or if you want to queue with two people, or three, four, five, six, the system will allow you to do that.

...but yes, Soldier 76 is arguably the easiest to start learning with. He's the used character in the tutorial for a reason. I'd start with that, Josh. Unless you want to play Rein and just smash everything.

The problem with 76 is that if you're doing well enough to consistently get his ult you probably don't need it and if his ult is the only thing that helps you aim straight you're probably going to have a bad time.

Alternatively play support characters that don't rely on needing to aim or practice on the training grounds/custom game with all AI characters to learn to aim gooder. There's also an option in the control settings to change the color of your crosshairs if you find yourself visually losing sight of it in the middle of a fracas.

Bright green crosshairs are almost universally going to be the best to use. Shows up on almost every background and doesn't clash with particles in fights.

That said, there are TONS of characters where aiming is not really a thing. Most of the tanks (Zarya and Roadhog are the only ones that really requires it due to D.Va having a HUGE cone, and even then, pig only really aims his hook), and support is also a thing since if you just don't fire accurately you'll still at least be somewhat useful with all but Zenyatta.

That said, definitely practice aiming while you're playing these heroes. Even with the heroes that require very little of it, it definitely helps.

Aiming with the hog is the most important part about him. His right-click is vital for taking out enemies at medium range and if you headshot them with it they pretty much get 1-shot. Also for landing hooks on those slippery characters (Tracer/Pharah/Lucio).

Nothing more satisfying than hooking a tracer on her original E point, or taking Pharah out of the air predicting where she's gonna fly.

Um, hooking a Tracer at the endpoint of her blink is pretty up there, too.

I worded it weirdly but you get what I mean. The place she returns to when she E's.

If you've played/played against enough Tracer her Dash is usually pretty easy to predict. I play enough Roadhog to think to hook her at the end of her dash and it usually pays off. Hooking her from her E is much harder to get precisely right.

So after playing for a week, I have a good idea of my 'mains'.

Offensive: Pharah, Reaper, Tracer

Defensive: Bastion (big sorry), Mei, Widowmaker

Tank: D. Va, Roadhog, Reinhardt

Support: Lucio, Zenyatta


I would say on average, I stomp games when I play D. Va or Roadhog, and do moderately well with everyone else except Mei, Zenyatta, Reaper, and Widowmaker, who I need some improvement on. I have been playing a lot of Roadhog recently, dear god - the guy is total freelo. I went 34/9 with him earlier tonight with a 60% hook accuracy. I've seen better (played with a guy who had 83% accuracy the other day which is insane), but I'm still proud of what I've been able to accomplish.

So when are we all gonna add each other and play together, eh?

I tend to be a little bit opportunistic and will pick what the team needs, but I'm very fond of Roadhog, D.va, Zenyatta, McCree, and 76 and will pretty much pick them in any neutral situation.

I don't really enjoy playing any defense heroes. But it's okay since those are the most popular, so we're never really without a bastion or mei.

I'm pretty terrible at snipers. Even Pharah.

I got my first epic last night and am unreasonably smug about that, and it's confirmed Lúcio as my favourite character. Second is definitely Junkrat. I hate playing tank and I can't find an offense character who really suits me.

Soldier is the easiest to learn because his primary weapons is fairly long range and hitscan, so your primary weapon is easier to hit with. The heal and speed boost also make soldier really safe. Meanwhile, rockets help you practice landing projectiles so you can eventually pick up characters with projectiles.

No I'd say the easiest character to learn and do well with is probably Bastion. Sure, he's the easiest offense character, but none of the offense characters are easy at all.

But Bastion requires you to know where to set up safely, and without good map knowledge that's not very easy. They're both pretty easy though so idk
