Same here, Cal. Stupid non-cross-platform networks. *sigh*

Jordan: I wouldn't say that about you, hon. Just that I was asserting who the target audience is with most of those games. Obviously awesome people can like games directed at a different crowd. Also, Overwatch seems really fun. I love me some Team Fortress 2!

I'm in the Overwatch beta and tried it out the other day.

I was killed so fast each and every time that even the replay didn't help me understand how I was dying so quickly!

I'm old.

It is kind of evil that they send you right into the mix with any level range of people.

Level only indicates time played. While that contributes to skill, it's not the only factor. There's a hidden MMR, so you will be matched with players around your skill level, with a few caveats.

If you haven't played much yet, you won't have an MMR that really means anything.

Also, fewer people in the beta means you'll probably end up being matched against higher skill players because there isn't as large a pool to draw from as there will be upon release.

And of course if queue times are long you can end up with anyone, though they do try and match it so that you'll also have high skilled players on your team.

Bregs, which heroes were you trying? Have a go at the tankier characters, they'll give you a bit more leeway in the amount of damage you take. Roadhog is my personal favourite hero, but Reinhardt is also great. D.Va is probably your best bet, though. She effectively has a second (squishier) life if she goes down.

The quick reply box didn't post for me. Take two

Overwatch is looking and sounding like something I could spend money on. I have never played a shooter on PC (well, not since Duke Nukem) so I may have a learning curve. Anyone else thinking of getting into this? Sounds like there is an open beta weekend coming up. Also, for those who prepurchase, you get beta access for you and a friend FYI.

I'll happily throw mine your way, Rib. (Although this is the first time I've heard about it!)

I still need to get a new video card to be able to run Overwatch, but I intend to get into it at least somewhat.
