    Overwatch losing its touch?

    Is overwatch losing its touch? It was super hyped and popular last year and the year before but it seems like it’s losing its touch. If you think it is, why?

    Ah okay. Yeah tanks were strong as hell whenever I played overwatch a while ago, I’m guessing they never issued any nerfs?

    they did, but they keep messing up the game. and to be honest, the only reason the game even got "popular" was because of streamers such as Lirik playing the game.

    I don't think it's got much replay ability, if more heroes were added I'd probably get back into it.

    I really enjoyed it at first for the same reasons why I really enjoyed playing TF2. It's just a goofy / whacky / fun FPS, and you could really have a lot of fun trying to pull off some random cheese comp with your friends. As the game grew older, the game moved towards separating the competitive / casual crowd and it just lost its appeal to me. It wasn't a game that I wanted to take seriously, and I think the gameplay is a bit too chaotic to really follow for the casual viewer like myself.

    I just started playing for the past week or two. I find the game fun and I'm trying to master becoming a DPS main. I love climbing in competitive despite the occasional trolls, AFKs and leavers.

    One thing that I noticed could get old however is the fact that there doesn't seem to be much of a reward system for playing. Yeah golden guns are cool and everything but for players that have been playing since release, many have almost/all of the golden guns unlocked.

    When playing in competitive, I also noticed that this game can tilt people/teams very easily. If a team gets stomped while escorting a payload in the first round, many players are quick to give up and not play to their fullest potential in the next round. They get tilted and start pointing their fingers at their teammates since that's the easier thing to do.

    The game really has room for growth, and I wish balance patches and such became more frequent on Blizzard's end. To my understanding (I've only been playing a week or two), Junkrat and Mercy have been busted for a couple of months before Blizzard finally toned them down some (especially Mercy).
