    So the Open Beta Early Access started. I got a spare key for it as none of my friend's wanted it :feelsbad:

    1 friend did ask if you had to own the game to be able to use the key. /shrug

    Any takers?

    I guess it'll be more or less first come first serve. Unless I think you're a cunt.

    Telling him he has no friends is not asking to be the winner of the beta key. Me asking flat out if I can play, however, is.

    I believe the Open Beta for general public consumption starts tomorrow, while those who pre-ordered have access a couple of days before hand. Either way, I'm looking forward to trying it out, because I'm uncertain it's even my thing.

    PS. Thana-tossed-salad is a cunt <3

    Thana totally just got it. That was funny though. Dick.

    On the bright side though on May 5th to the 9th you can play it for free when Open Beta officially starts.

    Sent you the key on steams.

    Installed and played this yesterday (after fighting with Blizzard's support website for an hour to get hold of a Game Master to remove the authenticator off my account since I hadn't logged in to Battle.net in over 2 years) and it was pretty cool.

    It does have a certain TF2 feel to it in that it has Control Point and Payload game modes, but there's 3 times as many classes all with wildly different abilities to make it a very different game. I confess to not having done enough research on the game itself to know if it's a worthy successor to the TF2 type game but a couple hours worth of play has me optimistic so far.

    Now I just wonder how long it takes for the game to be ruined by skins, unusual effects, legendaries with +3 to mana and a pay to win microeconomy.

    So I spent A LOT of time just messing about against bots, trying out all the classes, seeing which ones I really like and shit. I did some quick matches earlier and the people it stuck me with were all like level 1~8 right, and there's me on 1 team at level fucking 17 looking way out of place.

    I knew this was gonna be bad and sure enough the Hollywood map comes up on the second game and we're attacking. We get to the point and there's a turret from the dwarf, yeah ok no big deal, I go round the back of the building to flank and there's a second fucking turret and a third on the balcony. Not only did they have 3 dwarf guys but a Bastion too and that support lady who can make the mini turrets which she had spammed all around the control point.

    Fucking dustbowl all over again :fffeel:

    I haven't come across the complete turtle yet myself but with 5 out of 6 slots taken up by sentries that leaves them completely susceptible to long range or the frozen chicks ice walls to just block them off and have the team walk right past.

    Yeah that's true. These early games are gonna be tough though as hardly any new players want to play Tank/Support. This is why I love Roadhog, with the fat heal from his E and landing those hooks and 1 shotting the low health classes is so satisfying.

    Yeah, with it only being 6v6 having balanced classes in a match and working together is huge. Two things that don't usually happen with drop in type games.

    Snip! Or because you're a chubby chaser. There's a place in this world for everyone, don't be ashamed!

    This game is tough with randoms, especially those that are newer than yourself. A few of us ended up playing for a couple of hours after the pub died out, and we got rolled pretty much game after game, with the exception of like... 2-3 matches. But those game down to last second/OT pushes to Victory.
