I miss the days of reaper eating souls, no generic life steal.

Remember when mercy had a real ult?

Before dva was a real tank.

Hey you know mei used to be viable?

I want a legacy server.


It'll be years before they try to do that. Look at wow, that's been out FOREVER and it only just announced getting legacy servers in the next expansion.

For general use, I prefer the old burst heals of eating souls as well, however for his strength - tank busting - the current passive leech works better for him.

You mean the most annoying ability in the entire game? Sure. The current Ult /w Rez revamp makes her more formidable than she was before though. No harm done other than mercy mains crying over fewer PotGs.

Pretty sure general consensus is that D.Va's current iteration is her best iteration.

She has only been viable when the game was very new and everyone was bad. Regardless of what the meta is, something like 2/3+ of the roster has the ability to escape or survive her freeze/Ult. The only thing thats -really- changed is that she's slightly less effective at outsniping widow.

i'd like it if OW did a thing where we could play overwatch as it was at launch, even if for a few weeks - it'd be fun to compare.

This would actually be kind of neat as either a custom game / arcade preset or an extra mode alongside whatever they bring in for the Overwatch Anniversary event.

I just want no hero limit in QP.

The game never worked properly with No Limits. Ignoring how common it was [and still is in arcade] to have troll/meme comps of things like 6 Meis or 6 Bastions, Hero Counters just do not function in No Limits. Something that counters 1 Bastion does not necessarily counter 3 Bastions, and it would be impossible to make it so that it does.
The idea that people are asking for a Legacy server already is hilarious. Absolutely hilarious.

And Mei used to be viable? Hardly.
Pros:
Ironically less buggy Rein
Powerhouse Zarya (I can't be the only one that misses this)

Cons:
McRightClick
Dva 1.0 (defense matrix on E with a cooldown LUL)

Iffy:
GodHog (hook 1.0 + tankbuster damage)
Glassyata (50% discord and unaltered damage but 150hp and slow ult/orbs)
I mis the good old days as well, and will do anything to get them back.

You would be lying to yourself if you think tha game is better now.

Disagree, Overwatch is only as fun as the group I play with.

Reaper eating souls doesn't make the game any better, let's be real.

As a Reaper main I'll take the new heal anyday, as cool as the souls were.

Oh yes, nothing was more fun than being chain hooked through a wall! Such a superior game!


This sums up something wrong with OW from my point of view.

At launch, there was a lot more solo queueing. Now every QP game is mostly premades, half of which are drunk or high or trolling or otherwise doing their own strat and not communicating in any way with the team.

And of course, enemy premades are spec ops wombo-combo specialists.

The main thing I'd like to go back to in OW is more of a free-for-all feel. Where you don't have to deal with Mercy + Widow duo queues where the Mercy just damage boosts the 25% accuracy Widow all game and ignores everyone else.

A solo-only QP would be a dream.
Ahhh I miss Mccree
I think if they added an arcade mode that would make so that the match takes place at a random older patch in Overwatch's history that'd be fun.

Remember when Mccree FTH the sh*t out of everything?
When Widowmaker did 150 bodyshots
When Zenyatta was Symmetra-Tier and died to Widow
When Symmetra could do 50 hp shields on anybody at will
When Roadhog's Hook was so glitchy you swear it had a mind of it's own
When Junkrat's Tire blew up when destroyed
When Lucio was fast as Sonic the Hedgehog
And when Genji was literally a god
Nostalgia is a hell of a thing.

Overwatch has always had balance issues, things just shift as different characters rise and fall, it's the nature of having so much variety between heroes.

Overall things are better right now I feel, but outliers like Mercy and Doomfist are exacerbated by the slow patch rate.
Yeah, cross continent hooks, SnipeCree, 2 second duration 15 second cooldown defence matrix, useless teleporter on the last point, old nano w/ Rein + Genji, double fan the hammer obliterating tanks.

Yeah, no thanks.
I miss the old super generous hitboxes. I have terrible aim, and liked that the game was still very playable. The skill requirement has definitely gone way up.

Remember when Roadhog could hook you through time and space?

Remember when you could face 6 Torbjorn or 6 Symmetra comps in competitive.

Remember when Mccree was a sniper?
