    I'm currently at work and I'm waiting for 4:00 PM PDT so I can take a break and play! I can't contain myself right now, I might explode. So let's have a chat! Who is your favorite Overwatch character?

    Honestly, I've played quite a few and I'm not sure if I can pinpoint one favorite character. I like blowing things up as Junkrat, making sentries with Symmetra, Pew-pewing things as Phara, and Freezing things with Mei! :D

    Roadhog. By far. Landing a hook/shot/melee is the most satisfying thing ever!

    I got to play a bit of Roadhog during one of the weekly brawls where you were assigned a random character. ; -; I didn't land many hooks. KT 2 pro.

    I haven't had the chance to play the open beta, but if there are any kind of sniper character, I'll be sure to enjoy it.

    Obligatory:
    "Heh, you guys don't know what true despair is, I main Reaper. He resonates with my body and soul, he's as edgy as the tips of fringed hair!"

    But actually, Genji and Hanzo because of their Nippon Steel and also because I played like no one else in the beta, haha

    You'll probably like Widowmaker or Hanzo. Widow uses a snipe gun and Hanzo uses a bow and arrow.

    He's really fun to play. His Ult is deadly - even though you can hear him yell it before the dragons come your way. It's easy to get turned around and get eliminated by it.

    Widowmaker's ult is more tactical, because it allows you to see the position of the enemy team, even if they are behind walls and whatnot.

    During the beta Dva was my favorite one to play. There's something so satisfying about launching an exploding mech suit into a crowd of people.

    I didn't get around to playing everyone during the beta. I did like Widowmaker, because grappling hooks are the coolest thing in the entirety of the universe, and if you disagree then you have no sense of childlike wonder. Bastion seemed pretty mental. I wish I had ended up trying out D.Va, she's got a pretty cool design.

    I only played it for a half an hour or so and played the characters a bit, but I really liked Tracer and Roadhog a lot.

    I like D'va mechanically, she seems more like a Tank/Attack hybrid than just a flat out tank as she's been heavily criticized for being 'too easy to take out.' Plus her Ult is extremely easy to dodge. But I still really like that she pops out of her Mech as a second life. She's the hero I really want to learn how to be good with.

    But most of the time I play Mercy as nine times out of ten: no one else wants to play support. Getting a Mercy Play of the Game is so satisfying though. I sometimes just let a teammate die so I can pull off a better ult.

    Haven't played the game and don't really play on doing it but Reaper looks cool.

    So...Yesterday I've played 5h-ish of Overwatch. Turns out Junkrat is the character I'm enjoying the most thus far.

    I ended up picking the game up after all. I've been playing mostly Widowmaker, but I'm taking a liking to Reaper, cause he looks a bit like Udon's Taskmaster design, and Soldier 76.

    I believe my Battle.Net tag is Novaire#1884 if anyone wants to play sometime.

    Mei is the best. Only played the beta but I really want to get the full game.

    I just got an absolutely dope Reaper ultimate on Temple of Anubis. Attacking side, I teleported onto a ledge and killed one of their players, which gave me all I needed for my 100%, and then dropped down and got a 5-Man Death Blossom, as the game pushed into overtime, and my team managed to win a game we were really taking a beating in. It was really sweet.

    I had intended to upload it so folks could see it for themselves, rather than have to read it, but I closed the game before thinking about it, and as it turns out Blizzard has no function for saving anything once you've logged out. Sort of mind-boggling I must admit, I'm very surprised that it doesn't have any kind of replay functionality. I hope to see that implemented in the future, because, as is, that is pretty lame and kind of a huge bummer.

    He has become easily my favorite character at this point.
