I have favourites from each category. I don't believe in having a "main" in this game as I feel you hinder yourself. :P

 

This is my personal list of how I would play them.

 

Offensive: Genji > McCree > Tracer

 

Defensive: Junkrat > Mei > Torbjorn

 

Tank: D.Va = Roadhog

 

Support: Mercy = Lucio > Symmetra 

 

Really fun game though, it's probably one of the best multiplayer games put out in quite a while as everything has a counter. There are also multiple characters that anyone one person will enjoy.

I would totally get this game, but I'm not sure it's worth the price. TF2 is free so even if Overwatch is better, I'm not sure if it's $80 better. Maybe I'll try it some time.

If you buy the basic version which is all you need it is $40.

 

I would say it's definitely worth it.

i would play this game if it were free, or maybe 15-20. but it's basically just the competitive tf2 scene from 2009 re-packaged in blizzard's way. it's kinda funny to me how Blizzard had so many issues with Valve using the Dota model for Dota 2, and now Blizzard is using the Valve model of TF2 (of course, TF2 based on Quake TF, but still). it's just repackaging of the same idea. i wonder if there was some sort of deal in their previous lawsuits, or if this was just a cheeky move on blizzard's part

 

anyway, i really enjoyed the beta stages i got in on, but yeah. on a bit of a tight budget right now, so def not worth the $40 USD

I'm jelly that you're good with Genji. I want to be, but he's just not really my play style.

Give me Bastion and a choke point and it's not even close to fair. 

If they have a good Widowmaker that can make hook shots it's over.  But if you can stay covered and have a support cover you and a Reinhardt protect you then there is some merit.  I love turreting up on the escort vehicle.

A lot of my friends are playing it right now, but there is so many free games that are very good, likely even better than Overwatch, for my cheap butt to buy this game.

I play support 70% of the time but that's usually only because no one else will.

Gotta disagree with you there. It's an incredible game, especially played with friends. $40 is solid value for it.

40 American, which is like 4 grand Canadian after exchange.

I honestly dont really buy games much anymore, I dont really have a ton of time to game and most of the times me and my fam buy a new game we play it for a week or less then go back to the same old, same old.

Also, it really just looks like an updated TF2 with a different skin, honestly doesnt seem great at all really

Well, alright then.  You missed your chance to play the open beta, so it's honestly your loss, man.  If you can enjoy other games with your family then good on you.

 

Let's talk about who needs to get nerfed.  I think McCree and Lucio are the first ones.  Fan the Hammer is too strong, flashbang recharge too short... Lucio too tanky.  I believe those two characters are unfairly dominating the competitive scene at the moment.

I'd agree with you, but McCree has very limited mobility which makes up for it. 

 

Mei is a much bigger problem, mostly due to her larger health pool combined with self-healing. I also think Torbjorn's turret targetting range needs to be toned back a bit. It seems retarded that he can hold a point by himself if the enemy team isn't paying attention when he pops Molten Core.

McCree can kill tanks with one flashbang and a volley.  That's overpowered as F***.  He is 100% going to get nerfed and looks like Blizzard has half-confirmed it.

 

Also hearing that D.Va might get a small buff.  I'd like to see her guns be a bit stronger, since she holds very little firepower beyond her ult.

Maybe if every shot is a headshot, but that's not usual. I've played McCree quite a bit and it usually takes two-three well placed Fans.
