Most of us are on PC. I think I saw someone mention playing on Xbox but I don't remember who it was.

How soon are patches applied on Xbox? Don't they have to go through rigorous validation by Microsoft first?

Nope, though that's a good point. Not sure what kind of deal they struck or what changes in the process but patches are live the same day as the PC versions - see new Heroes and Events. Obviously there's no PTR.

Same applies to Diablo.

Ah okay that's pretty good then.
Was wondering if your D'va still died from using her ult :smirk:

lol I remember those days... honestly I wish they'd bring the old DVA back. Despite being able to blow herself up she was also able to cancel her charge so you'd get right in peoples face then charge them whenever you could to get a little extra damage and bump them around. it was fantastic. I stopped playing her when they nerfed her.

I finished my placements last night, and did better this time around than all the other seasons; won 7 and lost 3. Still only placed around 2100. :miffed:

You can still cancel her boost ability, no?

Yeah I don't get that... I was in the same boat and got the same rank. My friend that comes over to play won 3 matches, Draw 1 match and the rest were losses and he got 2100...

There's a minimum distance then because it doesn't work like it did originally.

God, i still suck at this, as evidenced in last night's games with the Donster - i had no idea what was going on half the time :olo:

How the teamplay works exactly mostly eludes me still i guess, though in one of the games there was at least a 15 second moment where it seemed like i wasn't fucking up completely with D.VA... so there's hope yet. Also, i take wrong turns on maps with alarming regularity :)

Question; i saw someone use their D.VA ult in a rather interesting way; jumped out of the mech and started blasting fools, a split second later the empty mech boosted into our group and exploded. How in the name of baby jesus? Q, then very rapidly shift or something?

Shift before you Ult brah
Also aim upwards if you can for maximum damage

Best try stuff like that out on the test map. We can talk through more later if you want to play a few games?

Ah, i see... Should be able to do a few rounds, around the same time as yesterday man :up:

And aiming upwards seems like a fine idea indeed - wonder why i haven't seen anyone do that yet.

Likely because you'll be mostly playing with people who are also quite new? Takes a little while to learn these things and to pick up tips off other players

I especially enjoy the shovel at the end of King's Row where the hole in the floor should be. :up:

Torb's turret scrapbook intro had me grinning too. :up:

Also, D.Va must be into vintage photography. :p

Anyone tried the new uprising game mode yet? I can tell you, it's glorious! Start off with normal difficulty though. Progress in any of the higher difficulties will depend a lot on whether or not your team consists of idiots (which usually, it does)

Meanwhile, they broke the rest of the game.

The developer said that custom games, 3v3 elimination, 6v6 capture the flag, and leaderboards will all be disabled until further notice.

With a group of friends, I presume? Because, jeez, I haven't even been able to get past hard and I strongly feel I haven't been the problem there.

I beat hard a few times now, it really depends on the team you're with however using Bastion is like pressing the easy button. I did about 6 runs with bastion, got play of the game every round and all the gold medals. Fun times. Haven't tried the next difficulty yet though.

Oh, I mainly play the strict one with only Tracer, Reinhardt, Torbjorn and Mercy. Does the all heroes one unlock the achievements as well?

Not sure but it's more fun to try different combos. I tried the Tracer/Rein/Torb/Mercy combo once and that was enough for me.
