    Can we just admire how ALIVE the PVE looks? For crying out loud you have maps with different times of the day and natural changing whether with parts that are distractible with unique objectives all of this mixed some realistic enemies that behave differently and fall on top of each other when you shoot them, with enemies that don’t try and attack YOU but try to attack the OBJECTIVE. Then you have some omnics crawling to you before they die to blow you up and enemies having weak spots or distractible limbs, all of that wrapped neatly with characters interactions during the each level and cut scenes before and after each mission AND a crazy skill tree And that’s only the story mode, when they said this is mainly focusing on PVE they weren’t joking cuz this makes the archive events look like a joke. This alone made my excitement shoot through the sky

    when people already have Overwatch workshop to make healers more tank, damage heroes more speed, and tanks more damage, also to create AI like in PVE. When PVE sounds like MVM from TF2, upgrading your heroes. I love Overwatch but I need to see more to be convinced, because if I already have Overwatch legendary edition, and have to pay for Overwatch 2 like it's a separate game then no.

    Well he's definitely interested in the game, you can hear that when you look into various interviews that he really does care about it a great deal. Yet you can also see that there's a lot going on behind the scenes and that as a Game Designer he's got to manage it all and thus may be busier with heavy decisions and thus be a bit numbed out by "smaller" things, that is specific content. Additionally, the things he talks about have been decided about and developed months ahead. I do really like how he handles everything, though.

    Will the game actually support 21:9 this time around? -- Or is it your current bollocks approach from OW1? You know, like SC2 - Industry's worst Ultrawide support (which is a bit weird, seeing as HotS has some of the best). "Oh noes, advantage. Whatever did people do when we went from 4:3 to 16:10, to 16:9? Oh noes." In short: Black bars, or current worthless system of losing a massive amount of vertical view (without gaining anything horizontal - Essentially just.. getting a smaller picture overall) .. and I'll throw my money somewhere else. If you do get it sorted out, then I look forward to it.

    Also a story mission or event where you fight in junkertown tournament and after that fight against Junker Queen as a boss would be nice. Other idea is where you play as Ashe and making some stealing mission with the gang would cool.

    Just an opinion here in the story mode I think there should be a mission based on tracers time travelling from her crono exelerater (sorry I don’t know how to spell) I feel it will make a big mission when it comes to law and cool to play as tracer (a famous character in this game) since it will make her stand out more.

    By my cauculations heres how many new maps ow2 will have (at least) In blizzcon 2019 they revealed 4 new maps, then after they revealed the rome map here (current count, 5) they said to announce of of the new maps ONE OF then they announced NYC (current count, 6) so by the wording "one of" that guarantees there will be at least 7 new maps, but probably more like 9 or 10 seeing how long this project will be Do you agree with my reasoning?

  • TimTime


    12 dni temu

    @Illegal Pizza it kind of sounds like they don't want you to play with the old maps in the normal rotation anymore, like a "new game". I hope that won't be the case but we'll have to wait and see. It'll definitely be a lot of new maps and heroes.

    They said that they'd develop multiple new maps for each mode, assuming 3 per mode, including Push that's 15 maps. Then there might be other maps outside of that, maybe for the arcade mode or PvE only, so I'm assuming we'll see roughly 20 new maps, maybe a little less.

    one thing i think would be nice to do with holographic tech in rome is if they painted the statues... because the romans did not just make marbel statues... that was not how that worked... they became plain white because the color wore of and no one mantained the paint and then they just assumed that was how it was intended... but that is not actually how they looked originally.. now you probably would not paint ancient statues today because the paint my damage the statue or something of the like.. may may spray them with some kind of sealer after its been rigoursly tested and ferified to help more then harm (pollutants can destroy stone structures over time) But if you can project an hologram or a Augmented reality projection over it or just use a regular projector (something we can do irl) then you could show it as it was meant to be... would nice to see that in game but probably blizzard did not think to do that.. it would be cool if they added it in though... ideally after consulting with those that studied what kind of paints and dyes would be used at the time to get the idea of the colors that may be used... but maybe i am just nerding out to much on historical accuracy :p Notably the pyramids also never had naked stone exposed they would have outer casing block making for a smooth finish... lots of thing wear out over time. and they stand like that so long we forget how they originally where.. i do like that they depict the roman building in a more intact state.. that is intresting..

    Let me unlock things by playing Quickplay Classic. Role restrictions take the fun out of the game. Sometimes you absolutely need to change roles to turn the match in your favor. Sometimes a character with a different role counters 3-4 enemy characters. I get that you're trying to make it more competitive and less toxic but restrictions in games are never fun. It would also be nice if non-competitive modes felt equally rewarding to competitive. Competetive is by far the least enjoyable mode in the game. Not because it's difficult (it's really not), but because role restrictions and toxic players. I can take toxic but at no point am I enjoying myself in that game mode. I'm glad it's there so people aren't toxic in Quickplay Classic. A nice trick to remove toxicity from the rest of the game. Just don't make me play competitive to get rewards.

    They've said that they're experimenting with AI companions. They want them for the case of leavers but if they can get them to work well enough open them up to be played alongside a single player. I wouldn't hold my breath for it, though... everything will be fundamentally built and balanced around 4 players, anything less than that would make it pretty hard to balance
