Everyone on GameReplays.org seems to like Tracer alot, but what about the others, like for me personally Reaper is so cool, 2 shot shotguns. smile.gif

I really like heroes that can get on top of buildings and flank in pubs, so i'm also looking forward to playing Reaper a lot smile.gif

I'm going to make a directory on this, so that everyone is aware of all the current heroes that are playable. Mostly we are all familiar with Tracer, the speedo torpeedo

So, what your saying is, there are only a few selected heroes that we can play?

All heroes and all maps, including future heroes and maps, will be available when you purchase the game.
The only thing you could choose to buy afterwards is cosmetic items.

Onyx is talking about making the forums here look a bit cleaner smile.gif

Yeah, also there is a selected amount of heroes you can play. If you've played TF2 it's similar in that aspect. However I assume there will be a bunch of customizations like TF2

Well TF2 when I started playing it, everything (Heroes, and Maps) were available to the gaming public, I hinestly never saw anything that was only a selected amount of maps and Heroes to play.

Overwatch will have 21 characters at launch, each with unique MOBA styled abilities next to their individual guns, making the game a lot more dynamic than TF2, with only 9 classes. Blizzard has also hinted that they will be making more (free) characters in the future.

The difference between the availability of maps is due to Valve letting the community make maps and allow for them to be played on. Right now, Blizzard doesn't seem to be wanting to do this, which is fine to me. League of Legends practically only has 1 map and has maybe been THE biggest game for several years.

Overwatch has 8 maps rights now, and more could be added. smile.gif

Tracer might be cute... but DEADLY!
They already have some pretty awesome characters, I'm excited to see what else they are willing to come up with in the future. I'm still curious which platform will have the most players on

For me personally, Xbox 360 will have the most players.

Xbox 360 or Xbox one? tongue.gif

I hope they come with some crazy character that has tons of combos and a huge skill cap. I love seeing people take these heroes/champions to the maximum level and make insane plays with them.

Oh yeah I'm sure we will see a lot of that. I still haven't tried out none of the supporting classes, what do they do exactly? ( I know support, but in what way)
