Just won a hard game in all heroes and it doesn't unlock the achievements. There is an achievement for completing the mission with 8 different heroes in that mode though (as well as one for completing the regular mode with all four heroes)

The amount of stupidity going on in this game mode is just unbearable. Torbjorns who forget to drop armors (or teammates who don't pick em up if I'm Torb), Mercy's who just fucking suck at healing, Reinhardt's who have no clue what they should be doing and Tracers running head on into enemy Bastions. Gawd :rolleyes:

Pro tip btw: don't kill the first OR14 unit. It prevents the other ones from spawning and gives you some breathing room to take out the sentry Bastions. Only kill the OR14 once the bastions are gone.

Was deranking because of some awful teammates (even with friends and racking up golds). Managed to string together 6 wins in a row last night and get my SR back up a bit.

Every game I've been in this weekend has at least one person exploiting the spawn bug while escorting the payload. Handy when you're trying to get the 80% payload health achievement on Hard, but otherwise makes things quite boring. I'm surprised Blizzard hasn't fixed it.

It's getting frustrating. I haven't been able to beat Uprising on Hard yet. The reason for not making it is pretty much the same thing every time.

I used to pick Torbjorn at first, but found out that if I pick Mercy, I'm usually better able to carry a poor team a lot further into the mission by virtue of healing the shit out of my team members. The thing is, it usually fails because someone runs off in the distance. It's not even uncommon for someone (usually Tracer by blinking or Reinhardt by charging) to run ahead and actually start the third hack while the rest of the team is still mopping up the remaining enemies from the second hack. The result is that hack2 enemies are still around while hack3 enemies start getting spawned, and you can't deal with that, especially not because the team is split up.

The other main point of failure is inside the powerplant where someone dies in between the last two OR14's or behind them. It's nearly impossible to revive someone there unless you fly in as Mercy and use your ult. But then you can't reach your other two team mates to heal them and you're fucked. For some reason, people focus on the OR14's too much and forget about the Bastions. Those are much more dangerous.

It just happens every single time and it's enormously frustrating.

Would love to :up:
Got the hard-difficulty achievement during lunch break today though. Did a run with a colleague. Still had a completely retarded Reinhardt on our team which nearly screwed the whole thing up multiple times, but my colleague played a magnificent Mercy and managed to save our asses every time.
Funny thing was that my colleague was constantly freaking out about how he had never seen anyone play that shitty in any run he did, while for me teammates like that was just the order of the day. I'm not sure why our experiences differ so much :shrug:

My 3 year old laptop can cope with Overwatch on low settings. Wouldn't worry too much if I were you.

funny how, again, the things I was complaining about, which indicated that the game as poorly made, have since been addressed and fixed by Blizzard.

Didn't you derank to silver last season? That's pretty rough, I'd probably hate the game too if I sucked so much at it :)

I suck pretty bad at the game, but I'm not bitter about it. Much.

Although I'm not Silver bad. ;)

these regular events got me spoiled for the game. The base game seems too vanilla, so I wait till the next event, play that a couple of rounds depending on the gametype/available skins and then kinda forget about it.

For me it almost feels like the game's downfall? :(

Was thinking the same thing in the first week of Uprising, but the last week, Uprising itself started feeling very stale to me. It's the same thing every time.
Because of this I've been feeling thirsty for the "normal" game modes again.

So are most of the people on my Friends list. I think the only reason I'm halfway from Gold to Platinum is because I only play healers in Competitive. As soon as I have to hitscan, I suddenly develop MS. :(

So you can get the Officer D.Va skin now...


...as well as the Oni genji skin...
Image

...by playing Heroes of the Storm. What you need to do is play 5 games against other players or against AI while grouped up with a friend (choose quick play and just invite a stranger in your group and usually they'll accept, knowing what's up. You can remove friends afterwards).
Once you've done that, the Genji Oni skin and spray are unlocked in Overwatch. Then, after that, you need to complete a further 5 games against other players (also with a friend, but not against AI) to unlock the D.Va skin.
Next week, you'll need to complete another 5 games against players to receive some sprays and stuff for Overwatch, and in week 4, the final 5 games need to be played for 10 Overwatch loot boxes.

You don't actually need to win any of these games. Also note that the rewards will remain acquirable throughout the 4 weeks. So you could wait until week 4 to unlock all of this stuff by playing 20 matches in one go.

Ooh yeah not sure how that works on Xbox, as HotS is PC only. I assume you can connect Overwatch to a Blizzard account but you'd still have to play HotS on PC.

Jeff has said that eventually the skins will be unlockable without playing HotS, so they are just timed exclusive for now.

Just unlocked the Officer D.Va skin. When you Lshift the siren goes off. And when you use her dance emote, they light up. <3

Fuck yea, I finally hit Platinum. I was at 23xx for the longest time, but I finally broke through ELO Hell. Gotta hand it to the Grand Master smurf in my last game, he asked me to pocket him as Mercy and then Genji'd all over the red team. :smirk:
