  1. Overwatch Fun for November 2018

    This month we celebrated the holidays but had some pretty sweet plays earlier in the month. I haven't had that many charge-kills like that in a while, and we dominated a few times doing escort the VIP. The last clip is a great Team Kill by a guest (TheGeneral18) who stopped by our Discord on a Mayhem night. We hold an event every Friday night where we get together for some Overwatch Mayhem and have fun.
  2. Overwatch Fun For September 2018

    This last month there was QP playing and some fun in-house grouping up in the arcade. Put your clips in "Show us your clips" to be featured in next month's video. GLHF out there!

  5. ! Overwatch PTR notes of September 21st. Hi everyone! Squidney here, and I'm here to talk about the latest Overwatch news. Currently, we have A LOT of stuff going on in Overwatch. And this will be a somewhat pretty long post because we have A LOT to cover!! Let's start off with the Halloween leaks. As you know Halloween is around the corner and Blizzard already made 2 or 3 leaks on the Halloween event this year. So let us cover that first! The first leak was around the beginning of September or late August I believe. Anyways on the official Blizzard website, there were MAJOR skin leaks to some pretty neat skins we'll be getting this year. And most of us in the Overwatch community *think* we figured some of them out pretty quickly Here is the picture of the skin NAMES. As you can tell we also see the old skins from the previous years. And we also see those names along with the rank such as legendary, epic etc. Here is a list of the skins if you cannot see the picture. Spider queen (Purple, epic) Bride (Legendary) Ghost (Legendary) Slasher (Legendary) These are the 4 leaked skins we have for this one leak. Now here are my theories on who is getting these skins. For Spiderqueen it's only an epic skin. So purple. As soon as almost everybody saw it they all assumed Widowmaker right? Because of her relationship with Spiders. But I actually don't think so. I personally think that this skin will go to *drumroll* Orisa!! Now, why? You may ask? Well, my theory is that the spider skin is based on Greek Mythology. So for an example of a Spiderqueen from Mythology is pretty simple, it's almost like a centaur. Half human half horse. BUT with a spider queen, I think what Blizzard was aiming for is, a monster type of spider. Almost like a spider with a body? Almost something like this: Pretty much a creature. But why would this relate to Orisa? WELL BECAUSE it makes a LOT more sense than Widowmaker. Widowmaker doesn't really have the body type for a spider queen. Orisa has the legs and the movement and body type to actually fit this skin perfectly. And to support my theory, let's look at the Junkinstien comic from last year. It showed Genji and Zenyatta fighting a spider creature Now, if you take a look at the spider, it doesn't look like a spider at all. If you look REALLY closely at the legs, it doesn't even look like a regular spider leg, it looks more robotic, same with the entire body. That's why I believe that Blizzard was hinting this skin, from LAST YEAR. Crazy right? That's why I feel like Blizzard is making this Spiderqueen skin, for Orisa. Next up, Bride. NOW I know we have A LOT of Widowmaker players in the community. Which I know some of you might be let down by the spider queen going for Orisa and not Widowmaker. But have no fear! Cause I believe that Widowmaker is getting the Bride skin!! How come? Well if you pay attention to Overwatch lore. Widowmaker was actually married before she was brainwashed and joined Talon's forces. That man was Gerard. AND if you look back in Widowmaker sprays during the first Archives event. You can see Widowmaker and Gerard at their wedding! As you can see, Widowmaker is wearing her wedding dress! Although I think it won't look EXACTLY like that, I think they'll change it more to Widowmaker's style maybe a black type of dress? Or purple? Anyways, I think she'll rock this dress as a sniper! Next up, Ghost! Now I think 2 different people may get this skin. Sombra, or Moira. Although I think it'll fit Moira better. We all know Sombra can go invisible infinitely now. But I think Moira would suit this better. Because of her spooky personality and her backstory. Plus her fade ability looks more ghost-like compared to Sombra just going invisible. And finally Slasher. Everyone actually thought Roadhog for Genji would get this skin. But I actually thought Soldier 76 would get this skin for multiple different reasons, and another leak recently came out in the PTR that pretty much confirms this. 1. Roadhog already has a skin from the Halloween event, he doesn't need another legendary skin. (Sorry Roadhog mains) 2. Genji already had a skin hinted in the comic that looked NOTHING like a slasher. Why I think this will go for Soldier 76?? Well, I don't think Blizzard is going the way we all thought. I think they were going for an old-school Michael Myers skin. Soldier 76 legit looks like him too! And an achievement leak over on the PTR showed the skin icon with Soldier 76's face! Next up, the rest of the leaks over on the PTR. If you take a look at the Special achievements you can get, it shows the "The 6 wanderers" along with 6 different icons for a skin. Here is what they look like, and what I think what heroes they are, along with what skin I think some of them are. Here at the first one, looks A LOT like Hammond. I personally think these could be 3 different skin ideas. 1. A scarecrow 2. A pumpkin 3. A bat Although it's REALLY hard to tell on what it could be. Anyways, next up I honestly think that's Widowmaker in the Bride skin. But its super hard to tell with these. Next up, I think that's Winston with a Pirate captain skin. Next up I think that is a Knight skin for Genji. And then the Slasher skin for Soldier 76. And finally, I think that's a Sombra skin. Not sure what skin though. I believe we're done with the Halloween leaks so far. Let us move up to the Torbjorn rework!! I'm not going to put the entire patch notes because this post is already as long as it is. So we'll focus on the Torb rework, but if you want to see the patch notes click here Here is a copy and paste of the patch notes on Torbjorn. As you can tell he is INSANELY overpowered right now, and if they don't nerf him as much before he goes on live, I believe there will be an amazing Torbjorn meta. I hope you guys found these theories and information helpful! Let us know about what you think of the Halloween leaks and the new Torb!! I'd love to hear some different theories :eyes: Torbjörn General Reduced the size of Torbjörn’s head hit volume by 10% Rivet Gun Primary Fire Projectile speed increased from 60 to 70 per second Reload time reduced from 2.2 to 2 seconds Turret targets enemy hit by primary fire Alternate Fire Recovery lowered from 0.8 to 0.6 seconds Damage per shot lowered from 150 to 125 Reload time reduced from 2.2 to 2 seconds Spread randomization readjusted Forge Hammer Radius increased to align with Quick Melee Deploy Turret Now a thrown projectile Automatically builds over three seconds No longer has different levels Same damage output as previous level 2 turret Maximum health reduced from 300 to 250 Now incurs a 5 second cooldown when deployed Now incurs a 10 second cooldown when destroyed in combat No longer able to deploy a new turret if it’s in combat While the turret is firing If the turret has taken damage within three seconds Now able to destroy turret using the Interact input Now will complete self-building once deployed, even if Torbjörn is eliminated New Ability: Overload Replaces Armor Pack Lasts for 5 seconds (12 second cooldown) Temporarily grants 150 armor Increases attack, movement, and reload speed by 30% New Ultimate: Molten Core Switches weapon from Rivet Gun to his claw arm Lasts 6 seconds Fire up to 10 molten globules that create damage pools where they land for 10 seconds Bounces off walls and ceilings until coming into contact with the ground Base damage is 130 Damage increases from 130 to 190 against enemies who have armor Heroes affected by armor: Bastion, Brigitte, D.Va, Orisa, Reinhardt, Torbjörn, Winston, Wrecking Ball Heroes who can grant armor to their allies: Brigitte

  7. I am so happy in houses are starting up again, so here is a little video of our beloved Naru:
  8. Endorsements are going through

    It looks like they are adding endorsements similar to what you would see in LoL. I think this is great since games that have a huge comp scene can get super negative. With this at least if I'm not a douche then hopefully it will match me with non-douches. I think it really worked in League, and hopefully, it works here too. The LFG looks amazing too since you can specify who you want in your group. It isn't just random like when you queue up for Quickplay. Here is a link to an article where they break down the stats on negativity in Overwatch. https://www.pcgamer.com/overwatch-endorsements-and-looking-for-group-features-are-already-working/
  9. "Every Thursday and Saturday night we have events where we play some fun and serious game modes." Thursday night is reserved for those who would like to play competitively to get better with team communication and rank up. We have a very wide variety of skill sets here at ADK. We have some players who are in silver and want to make it out and some players in diamond trying to make it into masters. Don't be shy if you are in bronze since we have many players who will team up with you and pull you out of that hell. Saturday nights are for a more fun time where we play game modes found in the arcade. Some of our more popular game modes are Bully the Mei, Moira Dodgeball, and Mercy Paintball. We play a lot of different game modes though and expect a poll each week where we vote on which game mode we want to play that Saturday. The poll is on our website and if you want to play on Saturday night you don't have to vote; just show up! We do encourage voting and it is very easy to become a member of our website. Join us for some epic fun times!

  11. Like last year, 24 countries will compete to be the best Overwatch nation! So, to be perfectly honest, who is going to beat South Korea; lol. This article has all the group stages for the World Cup and if you take a look, two countries that were top placers last year are in group 1. So in late August expect some huge plays from Russia and South Korea. For us Americans and Canadians, we queue up in early Septemeber. https://www.heroesneverdie.com/2018/6/27/17510550/overwatch-world-cup-group-stage-location-venue
  12. In house Poll for 06-30-2018

    Every Saturday we have our in houses where we vote on a game mode and then play it for about 2 hours. Feel free to vote on those below: 1. Mystery Heroes 2. Quickplay 3. Comp Mode 4. Arcade featured game
  13. Hey Doods, This week we did a lot of Quickplay. We ended up winning most of our matches. Next week is more quickplay; good fun! See you next week :3
  14. After a little over a month, we can finally see how the rework for,now defense hero, Symmetra looks like on the PTR. We can see noticeable changes to her primary and secondary fire of her gun with the following details Photon Projector - Primary Fire No longer locks onto targets Range increased to 10 meters Damage ramping (up and down) now takes 2 seconds per damage level instead of the old version which was 1 second Damage ramp increased from 30/60/120 to 60/120/180 Now generates ammo instead of spending it when hitting barriers Photon Projector - Secondary fire No longer pierces targets Now explodes on contact Projectile speed increased Charge up speed increased Damage changed to 60 impact / 60 explosive Her turrets also get a changes Sentry turrets Turret is now placed like a projectile instad of being set in place Can hold a max of 3, down from 6 Can now deploy a max of 3, down from 6 Damage increased Amount of slowing effect increased Health increased from 1 to 30 Now one of her old ultimate is now available on her E as an ability Teleporter Can now place the exit up to 25 meters away from Symmetra Entrance will automatically be built in front of Symmetra, rather than at her team's spawn point Lasts 10 seconds Health lowered to 300 More things can teleport through it (e.g: Junkrat's RIP-Tire) Entrance can be destroyed (if either the entrance or exit is destroyed, the other is removed) And finally her new ultimate is, not saying anything else insane, this is "photon barrier" on of her old abilities that has been moved to the Ultimate slot, but no longer creates a circular barrier that moves wherever you created at, now creates a massive shield that covers all the map, dividing it in half New Ultimate: Photon Barrier Deploys a barrier that is big enough to span and cut through an entire map orientation can be changed by pressing the ultimate button again Has 5000 heath Lasts for 15 seconds This is what the developers said on the patch notes: The goal of these changes is to move Symmetra to her new damage role and make her more flexible and viable across more areas of the game than she was previously. Now that Symmetra is no longer a support hero, she is expected to be able to dish out heavy damage, and these changes allow for her to do so. She should be more powerful and interesting in more team compositions and maps, and she should also be stronger on offense and defense.

  15. After a little over a month, we can finally see how the rework for,now defense hero, Symmetra looks like on the PTR. We can see noticeable changes to her primary and secondary fire of her gun with the following details Photon Projector - Primary Fire No longer locks onto targets Range increased to 10 meters Damage ramping (up and down) now takes 2 seconds per damage level instead of the old version which was 1 second Damage ramp increased from 30/60/120 to 60/120/180 Now generates ammo instead of spending it when hitting barriers Photon Projector - Secondary fire No longer pierces targets Now explodes on contact Projectile speed increased Charge up speed increased Damage changed to 60 impact / 60 explosive Her turrets also get a changes Sentry turrets Turret is now placed like a projectile instad of being set in place Can hold a max of 3, down from 6 Can now deploy a max of 3, down from 6 Damage increased Amount of slowing effect increased Health increased from 1 to 30 Now one of her old ultimate is now available on her E as an ability Teleporter Can now place the exit up to 25 meters away from Symmetra Entrance will automatically be built in front of Symmetra, rather than at her team's spawn point Lasts 10 seconds Health lowered to 300 More things can teleport through it (e.g: Junkrat's RIP-Tire) Entrance can be destroyed (if either the entrance or exit is destroyed, the other is removed) And finally her new ultimate is, not saying anything else insane, this is "photon barrier" on of her old abilities that has been moved to the Ultimate slot, but no longer creates a circular barrier that moves wherever you created at, now creates a massive shield that covers all the map, dividing it in half New Ultimate: Photon Barrier Deploys a barrier that is big enough to span and cut through an entire map orientation can be changed by pressing the ultimate button again Has 5000 heath Lasts for 15 seconds This is what the developers said on the patch notes: The goal of these changes is to move Symmetra to her new damage role and make her more flexible and viable across more areas of the game than she was previously. Now that Symmetra is no longer a support hero, she is expected to be able to dish out heavy damage, and these changes allow for her to do so. She should be more powerful and interesting in more team compositions and maps, and she should also be stronger on offense and defense.

  16. Hey Doods, This week we did a pretty fun game mode where we did the Sombra Hide and Seek mode. The point is to have only Sombras with all their stealth abilities running around hiding and killing. It was super fun! See you next week!
  17. Hey Guise, This week I went back in time and took a look at Reinhardt before the Brigitte addition. Reinhardt has always been a force to be reckoned with. He lost favor though when dive comp meta came into play where the tanks being played were DVA and Winston. He might make it back in this new meta though, with his squire as support. I went pretty far back with this footage being back from close to Season 2 or 3, so pretty far back, but then goes to more recent. Reinhardt isn't one of those heroes that have gone through a lot of change. Don't get me wrong he has been nerfed in the past, but it didn't cause a ton of commotion like Hanzo losing his scattershot for example. I did a quick Google search just to remind myself of some of his nerfs, and I found it funny that one was titled, "Did you notice Rein's nerf" ... or something to that effect. It's just funny that he quietly gets changed with no commotion. See you next week!
  18. Overwatch for Beginners

    Hey Everybody, Since every-so-often Overwatch is free to play some weekends, I am sure there are some of you that are on the fence about wanting to play Overwatch. So to make the best impression in a game that you might think about buying, check out the tips below. What kind of game is Overwatch? Overwatch is an FPS multiplayer game that is a lot like many MOBAs. You have a set amount of abilities with cool-downs where it is one team of six against another team of six. Where it differs is mainly the FPS aspect even though games like Smite might seem similar since you are closer to the hero and not looking from the top down. The game is available on PC and also on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Overwatch spawned from Blizzard's Titan project where they recognized the play-ability of team based FPS games like Team Fortress and they recognized the insane growth rate of MOBAs like League of Legends, so they went all in and created Overwatch. With so many heroes, which one should you choose? Offense Role This is one of four roles in Overwatch listed at the bottom of the screen when you begin a match. There are some hard heroes, but also some beginner friendly heroes for the offense like Pharrah, Reaper and Soldier 76. You'll notice that these heroes don't have much life to start with but end up doing a large amount of damage. Defense Role This is the second role that is listed below when you start a match. These heroes are not as beginner friendly due to the fact that a lot of the time you will need to know the map for instance. They are great heroes for defending choke points and control points and are usually considered the most flexible role. Out of all of them, Bastion is the most beginner friendly. With the majority of the heroes taking a medium amount of experience and time to master. Tank Role This is the third role you will see at the bottom of the screen when a match starts. These champions provide a lot of protection for an attacking team, but also for the defending team. You cannot get by without a tank since they tend to soak up the majority of damage coming from the other team. If you want to start tanking first, then I would recommend starting with Reinhardt or Roadhog. Support Role This is the last role you will see at the bottom of the screen when a match starts. Support is maybe the most essential to a team composition in Overwatch. Most maps have a point where the defending team digs in with a shield and deals out a large amount of damage in defense. If you are not careful and take that damage you will have to either run back to your spawn or find a health pack to heal up if there is no healer. So having that healing done as you advance or defend is crucial to your team's success. If support is your first decision, then you might want to try out Brigitte or Mercy first. What are other heroes that are beginner friendly? Soldier 76 If you are familiar with FPS games like CS:GO, for example, then you might transfer from that game to Overwatch easily with Soldier 76. His abilities are very standard with having a machine gun that has a grenade launcher, the ability to sprint across the map and a very helpful self-heal ability. Bastion Bastion is a very simple hero that can deal out a very large amount of damage in his sentry form. He may still be the most hated hero in the game since he is very easy to play and can be very difficult to deal with. Reinhardt, Mercy, Symmetra, and Winston These heroes are my favorite to play since my background is in RTS games like Starcraft. I didn't grow up playing FPS games, so these champs are perfect. Reinhardt doesn't have a gun, but instead, a large hammer he swings. Mercy has a pistol but is usually just locking on to heal her teammates which requires only a little bit of aim. Symmetra and Winston also have lock-on guns, where their laser-powered weapons latch on to the enemy not requiring precision aiming. So if you are new to FPS games, these heroes might be good to look at. What is important to know for each map type? Map types Escort On this map, you will see right away a payload that needs to have at least one hero next to it for it to move but moves the fastest when three heroes are next to it. The advancing team has a limited amount of time to push the payload to its destination, while the defending team tries to kill off the advancing team so the payload never reaches its destination. Assault On this type of map, there will be usually two points for the attacking team to take and the other team to defend. The spawn points start out at the first location and if the first point is taken, then the spawn points change to where the second point of capture is. Hybrid On this type of map, there is a capture point like on Assault maps, but after that first point is taken, it turns into an Escort map where the attacking team must escort a payload to a final destination. Control On this type of map, there is one capture point per round. The map format is a best of three where there are three different versions of the same map. A popular map like this is Ilios, where you will start out fighting for a point at 'the well' and whoever wins gets a point and then the second round would be at the 'ruins' with a third point being at the 'lighthouse'. Create a custom game and explore the map If you are absolutely loving Overwatch I would recommend taking a next step in exploring all the maps used in Quickplay and Comp. You could also check out the special maps from the arcade, but the point is to get familiar with the maps. To know where the choke points are, and to memorize all the health pack locations. Should you join team chat? If you are new it might be too much to join the in-game voice chat, but if you are a veteran gamer you might learn a lot by just listening to what the comms are like first. Later on, if you want to play ranked Overwatch it would be best to be familiar with voice chatting as team communication is absolutely necessary for success. I keep dying, what should I do? If it seems that every time you queue up you are getting killed very easily there are a few things you can try to do to prevent that. Your hero might be countered at the moment. Try to find out who is killing you most often at the top right of the screen, and then on your free time, you can check out some guides to see if they were your counter and how you can best counter them next time. If you are in voice chat you could also just ask a quick, “Who counters such-and-such hero”. This is important to know, and never be afraid to change your hero, that should be happening if your team isn't making progress. If you keep dying to the other team's ultimate abilities, just know that every hero yells out when they are using their ultimate ability, so just listen and run! Where should you go from here? If you are feeling like you are past that beginner phase, then start checking out some of your favorite hero guides on Google and YouTube. There are a lot of guides out there, so make sure you are looking at one that has a recent date. This game changes a lot and it would be a bummer to study a guide for Hanzo, for example, and find out that it was before they got rid of his infamous ability scattershot. I hope you found this beginner guide useful, and just know that GLHF is the most important part of playing Overwatch.
