    (HEY! Got your attention? Good, then add me on PS4, my username there is Zaziuma as well, let’s party up sometime!)

    Since I’m sure a lot of us are playing, I thought we should have a discussion page! Share your favorite heroes, your favorite moments while playing, or discuss strategy, whatever you feel like. I had a good moment that inspired this thread:

    @boloneyman: Oh mah gawd, that video is amazing.

    How’s everyone finding Sombra? Anyone got ay extreme opinions on her? Personally, I think she’s a relatively balanced Hero. Everything makes sense. Though, I do think her range for hacking could be reduced. THe amount of times I’ve been hacked around corners is annoying. Could just be a lag compensation thing. She’s very similar to Tracer I feel. Both are all about getting in, harassing the enemy and getting out. Both are slippery Heroes to hit, and both are game changing if they are coordinating properly with their teams. That said, I doubt I’ll play her much. I already main a DPS hero (getting close to 100 hours of Genji on Quickplay) and I personally don’t find the hit-and-run playstyle to be satisfying.

    Surprised I got it so early on, but here we are, now I have both of her trophies, which means I can actually start hacking with more care. Speaking of which, my gameplay may be bad here, still getting the hang of her. Picture of me getting the trophy: https://twitter.com/Zaziuma/status/801052674921824256

    I slightly panicked, but knowing that I would kill myself if I turned around I focused it outward, then got this gem:

    After 10 hours of playtime with Sombra, I have to say she is so much fun and I love her kit. My first games with her were chaotic and fun, however I felt lost on how she was supposed to be played. As a result of many games, I’ve created an assassin type play-style for her that has been working fantastically. Here are some Sombra gameplay to show the assassin play-style.

    This was one of my best games as Sombra in which I started to use the assassin play-style
    Note:The game starts around 1:30 if you don’t want to go through the banter

    This is refined gameplay of the assassin play-style

    Since I have played Sombra for more than I have Hanzo for the entire time I have played Overwatch, here are my thoughts on her: I like her, at first, I was worried because she seemed to do very little damage, but it’s actually not as bad as I thought, you can take out most characters pretty easily, besides tanks, though hacking them and doing damage can bring Reinhardts and D.Vas down if, and Roadhog can be too at times, though it’s more risky I feel, since his shot still is quite powerful regardless of the chain or not. She should not try to take down enemies if they’re in a group of 3 or more, that’s just bad news, you’ll get in some shots, then everybody will turn on you and you’re dead, always have a teleport up in case you must take out a healer or something like that. Learning that she can hack multiple health packs at once without the other disappearing is also a game change, and what’s interesting is that you can pretty much just stay at a health pack while killing a guy, and they won’t have a chance, since it respawns so fast, I wonder if that’s something they’ll look into in the future. Also, here’s my first Play of the Game with Sombra:

    For the record, we got that Genji too, but it was not PotG worthy I guess.

    God this must be the worst ones I have had yet, 4/10 wins, and I somehow still got into Diamond? What? I thought I would be in gold at the highest, not Diamond, those matches were absolute shit, the ones we actually won we were straggling, having 3-2 on control maps and 0 seconds on escorts, so I don’t know how I am even close to that with only 4 wins. The others I lost were because my team had people below level 100, some guys simply throwing the match, I don’t know if that had something to do with it.

    This season’s placement means nothing if everything is based on last season’s stats and personal mmr. I just finished with 4 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses and ended up with my last season high at 3512.

    I thought for sure I would be hit by D.Va, was not expecting Reinhardt and thought for sure I would be hit by it, if not squished, somehow I came out alive and well. Bless you Symmetra, you may just have save the match with your shield generator:

    So hey, I played Symmetra for a few hours now, and I figured she would be good on defense, as that’s what she’s suppose to do, I was surprised that she’s somewhat decent on attack as well. She’s not perfect, it’s hard, and you pretty much need to built up the Shield Generator to get anywhere, especially on escort maps, where she has the most problems I feel, but it can definitely be done. Her auto aim is beastly, I knew it was powerful before, but now, you can just tank through guys, though I have learned that Reinhardt is able to kill you quite easily if he has full health, so use the balls at him before you try anything. Also, I love that I now have a super easy way to get rid of Pharahs, Genjis and Tracers, I hated dealing with those before. I do fear that people are going to call her broken right now and they will change her super fast, I don’t think that’s needed, people just have to learn that it’s worth hunting down her Teleporter and Shield Generator.

    @zaziuma: I get that Symmetra can deal with Genji and Tracer easily, but how does she deal with Pharah?

    She gotta come down sometimes, that’s when you get her, and if you have the mini turrets on her, it’s like she’s tracking through mud, making it even easier, and the range is decent enough to take out that’s hovering as well. She can be taken out with minimal charge too, since she has so little health, so that’s not a problem. She’s no a prefect counter, in fact I probably shouldn’t call her that, but she can get the job done if needed.

    New comic is out! http://comic.playoverwatch.com/en-us/tracer-reflections

    SPOILERS:
    So the big spoiler is that it turns out Tracer is lesbian, at least in the comics. Also McCree and Sombra are hanging out, well, if McCree even knows she’s there (he’s pretty hammered from the looks of it, no pun intended). Mercy’s helping people and Reaper is sneaking around in King’s Row. Kind of wish that Winston had just made a big banana instead of a turkey, ah well. Some interesting stuff here.

    @zaziuma: Also, Torbjorn has 8 kids, and Genji is writting letters to Mercy. Pen pals? Or maybe more?

    I would think those would be Reinhardt’s kids, since he’s the one they’re sitting with, and that he’s in the Santa costume, I’m thinking he is more of an “uncle” to those kids, and well, typically little people have kids with dwarfism as well, and those didn’t have it, and they looked more like Reinhardt too. I’m not too sure what he’s doing with that woman though, that doesn’t look like just friends, but I don’t know, it’s hard to say really.

    @zaziuma: I thought the same, but Blizzard responded with a Tweet saying that the kids were Torbjorn’s.

    Kind of weird to call him “Torb” when his name is “Tor-Björn”, would make more sense to just call him “Tor” then. People don’t call Reinhardt “Reinh” or Junkrat “Junkr”, or Widowmaker “Widowm”, or Roadhog “Roadh”. Maybe just call him “Bear”*? It’s just as short as “Torb” and sounds less weird. ^^

    *Björn is Swedish for “Bear”. Tor is Swedish for “Thor”, the Norse god of thunder.

    I’ve achieved master rank today and I never intended to go further than diamond. the randoms that i matchup with in the high diamonds seem to have the best attitude than my time with the platinums / low diamonds. It’s the first time that I’ve been consistently having fun with competitive.

    I also find the new Oasis map to be really boring. It’s pretty sterile and the obstacles within the control points makes capturing a bit of a pain.

    @gazrielv, really? I like it so far, the top roofs on the one with the tower and jump pad interesting to take on, the one with the hole also provides an interesting escape route as well.

    On another note:

    I’m practically Keanu Reeves, no snowball can hit me.

    With love – Sombra

    @gazrielv: Totally agree. The map’s a bit dull, but that might be because I’ve played the Oasis Arcade mode a lot and have worn myself out on it.

    Played a ton of PTR after the hook nerf was released and I can say that the new meta will be three dps, one tank, and two supports or three dps, two tanks, one support with the main support still being ana. The nerf Roadhog received is noticeable and has caused many players who know the hero in and out to feel as if he is no longer playable. Dva’s nerf isn’t as massive as some people take it as to be, she is still very viable especially when 76 still keeps his buff. Her defense matrix can still eat up most if not all of his ult and still can harass enemy lines better than most characters. If anything she will become the third most pick tank after roadhog has a dropage in usage.

    Which leads to Ana’s generade nerf. The healing boost being reduced means teams more than ever need to rely on lucio’s amp in order to quickly regain health, but since its range has been kept in tact it’s still very possible for ana to solo heal the whole team. A comp ive seen being practiced on is 76, Reaper, SOMBRA, Reinhardt, Ana and Lucio. Reasons being: 76’s spray and fall damage hasn’t been reduced at all so picking out healers is still easy unless you have a Sombra lurking behind you diverting your attention unless. Reaper is back as the tank killer and secondary fire to taking out the healers which again a Sombra protecting the healers can easily counter. Reinhardt for the shield is still a nonissue but again Sombra~~~. Notice the loads of Sombra being mentioned? Well, her decrease in hacking time is greatly appreciated causing hacks to be done before enemies can 180 and stop the hack in progress.

    Sombra is a terror to withold and hopefully the patch goes live soon. The tank meta can be buried forever once it does.

    Yes! This Symmetra was very liberal in putting them up, so I took advantage and finally got it. https://twitter.com/Zaziuma/status/820704004766310400
