I'm not a fan of FPS games in general. Overwatch seems fine on a PS4 controller though. I realise there's a stigma there, but I honestly couldn't care less. I prefer to play it with people that don't take the game too seriously.
I wish I could play it with you but there's no PC/console crossover, for obvious reasons.

Because the PC players would be too bust finding fault in every little thing the console players to to actually play a good game

What's that streamhive.com thing? I had never noticed it, when was it released?

It's just something that popped up on my battlenet news page. It doesn't even seem to be owned by Blizzard, but apparently it's some kind of streaming service specifically for Overwatch and Hearthstone?

Blizzard pressured me into playing ten games of Heroes of the Storm so I could get some special skins in Overwatch

I still don't know what Heroes of the Storm actually is and my Overwatch has updated more than I've played it.

It's like a crap free to play Statcraft that's now full of characters from WoW and Overwatch etc.

I played 11 more games of HotS yesterday in a full party of friends (again, to get Overwatch shit). Not really any good at the game, partially because my laptop chokes at any game at all, partially because I don't care about the game and am only playing it for the Overwatch skins/boxes. D.va's a pretty good addition to the roster, anyway.

I've been playing Overwatch for over a year now, so I'll ask again if anybody here plays

I played it during a free weekend a few weeks ago and got bored of it before the weekend was up. I'm not sure why as I was having fun at first. I think it's because the matches are over so quickly I got burnt out pretty fast.

If you weren't having fun, you can't have been playing properly

It was fun at first but it didn't take long for it to feel incredibly repetitive.

I'd say it's anything but repetitive. You rarely have to play the same game rules twice in a row and the best tactics require you to switch up who you're playing as frequently.

I think the main issue is the games are over so quickly, so it feels like I'm playing (and seeing the same maps) 10x as much as I actually am. Even if I'm not playing the same game rules twice in a row, if I'm playing a shitton of games in a short period it's the same difference.

Ah I think that can be put down to L2P issues.

This game has updated more than I've played it. Just can't motivate myself to play multiplayer games nowadays.

They add new modes/characters/maps/skins in ridiculously often. The game's such good value for the base price.

If L2P means Learn 2 Play, I was winning the majority of the games. It's irrelevant which side wins as the matches are still over very quickly. I think it's ultimately just a matter of personal preference. I used to play a lot of Dota 2 which only has one map and rarely adds new heroes, but each match is a slow burn of 30-45 minutes. By the end of the match I feel very invested in what's going on. Overwatch felt like a five minute clusterfuck then somebody wins.

Honestly, while I didn't get bored of it as quickly, I was never a huge fan of Team Fortress 2 either so maybe the class shooter genre just isn't for me.

I can agree with that.
Though I'm also not a huge fan of LoL and spending 45+ min on an intense game with angry 10 year olds on the same map for years.

I like HotS because it's in somewhere in between.
