I am playing light as hell.   Except for certain builds meant to do one thing and not actually be good at beating the games, I've always fallen on the heavy armor big shield crutch in dark souls. And I determined that it was about time I stop doing that.

My armor is a dragon torso stone (because fuck you imma dwagon) my weapons are pontiff scythe, manikin claws, rapier, and pharis' bow.  I will be the best dodger/parrier ever.

I am nowhere near the best dodger ever, I seem to be ok at parries.  Until I forget to put a real weapon in my right hand and follow up a parry by menacingly two handing my bow at them.

I've died many times in a certain city, that a certain duo would call home.  I've been walled here for 2 days now.

And to answer an earlier question some folks spoiler games out of tradition.  I think it originally started to create a sense of anticipation.  Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.


This....is the wrong thread....  I thought this is die....  Well, uh....I made it that far without punching a hole in my monitor I guess?

I hit a scary number of people with my hammer in a short amount of time.  In fact I hit so many people with my hammer that an opponent became very salty about how Reinhardt is too good and all you have to do is run at people and hold down LMB.

Ways to close out a game really fast and/or scar your opponent:

#1: Unstable Portal into turn 7 Deathwing (a 7 mana 12/12? Yes please).

#2: Archmage Antonidas into Cabalist's Tome into Cabalist's Tome into lethal next turn.

#3: You have ten cards in your deck, and one card in hand. Your oppnent has no cards in deck, and an empty hand. Flamestrike.

Hearthstone.

Ok, sorry for the Off-topic moment, but... this is now the 7th character I hear is "OP" in that game. Isn't the definition of OP kinda... vague in that?

Back on topic:

Losing 2-1, 20 seconds left in the match; the opponents take a shot at the goal, all 3 of them are on the offensive. I manage to stop their shot by rushing in with Turbo, the ball flies away and ends up bouncing in the opponents' goal. Score tied, 10 seconds left.

We later won the match, although it ended in just a few seconds and I had no impact on the rest of the game whatsoever.

Remember, it's OP if it's beating you, otherwise it's balanced.

I wouldn't worry about that too much. This is the Internet; whoever you stole it from probably stole it from someone else, and so on.

Considering there are only 27 characters... yeah.  They did a very good job balancing the characters so that they all feel powerful without being overpowered.  There are OP and UP characters for sure, but considering how many there are the devs did a remarkably good job with the whole thing.  Its kind of like TF2 on crack (3x as many classes) yet some how FAR more balanced than release TF2.

Edit: Or current TF2 really.  Nothing in Overwatch is as broken as the Reserve Shooter has been for years.

Oh my god the internet is a vehicle for theft! BAN NOW BEFORE OUR CHILDREN ARE STOLEN AND KILLED! The internet is a vehicle for plagarism and it's destroying our creativity! *Unintelligible growling and screeching*

Not that I actually know anyone who's super duper against the internet. Except maybe my school, and that's just blocking freeware, Youtube, pornography/adult stuff, games, things that can be justified.

Except maybe the Youtube ban, 'cause people need to get permission for every individual video (even a channel made by student press can't be cleared).

Anyway...

Used a pistol as my main weapon and got away with it, only switching weapons when I was really in trouble (two mutant clingers at once or something like that).

Having the pistol fully upgraded and having reloading near its maximum for both characters helped loads, as you might imagine.

I also got the "I'm the Alpha" achievement while doing so.

I don't know anything about Overwatch, and I don't know what you do/don't know about TF2...

Aside from the Phlogstinator, I'm not sure what you mean specifically. With public servers it's kind of down to luck whether you've got a team willing to actually be a team or not.

If you want to know what release TF2 was like, get TF2 for the Xbox 360.  They NEVER patched it because they realized that Microsoft charges for updates.  Some highlights:
1.  Some weapons, notable the Demoman's grenade launcher, have the projectile originate at the end of the weapon rather than from the character's hitbox.  That means you can fire them through walls, including the spawn room walls.
2.  Pyro has no airblast.  Yeah...
3.  Demoman's grenade launcher has a 6 shot clip.
4.  All the maps are old TF2 maps, of course.  So they fail the golden rule of TF2 maps which is that there must always be at least 3 paths along which an attacking team can advance.

There's probably other things I've forgotten but yeah.  They spent years making their class based shooter but on release it was just demospam demospam demospam.

YOU USE AN XBOX FOR TF2?


Come on, you gotta join us at the PC master race! You typed all your stuff on a PC, didn't you? I'm sure yours can handle it, even this toaster I'm using can run it (although my laptop shuts off due to overheating after 1.5 matches on a good day because Dell devices don't come with flash gaming-grade graphics cards) :P

But to be honest, I feel sorry for you if that's the TF2 you remember/the only platform you can play TF2 on. I was born in '99 so I guess you could say I'm lucky. I don't remember awful shit like 9/11 or release TF2.

Thanks for sharing, by the way... TF2's come a long way since its first release, believe me.

Well, maybe not (I don't much play it because overheating)...

I know what the Reserve Shooter is... clearly I've played PC :P

No but seriously I have like 500 hours on it. One of my college roommates had Xbox TF2 and its fascinating because its a little frozen time capsule of a game that's moved on.
