    This is the first I've heard of it.

    Playing it when I get a spare moment. I seem to do well as Mercy or Tracer. :)

    Just bought it friday. Looks awesome and it seems fun so far.

    I'm glad that the pay 2 play component is just cosmetic. Doesn't hinder the balance of the game!

    This looks like TF2 meets Unreal Tournament meets Final Fantasy, but I've heard it's fun.

    You can tell that Blizzard put lots of loving effort into getting girl's butts just right...

    I think if Team Fortress 2 was turned into a MOBA, it would BE overwatch.

    It lends to the replayability factor Goofus.

    It's not really a MOBA in any way, I don't really understand why people say that. It's a class based shooter if you ask me.

    Someone I know called it an MMO the other day. Does it have stat building / leveling or is more like tfc, where the first time you login you can beat anyone if you're a better player etc

    The leveling just unlocks cosmetics and sprays. you have to be like level 25 I think to play competitive, but it's entirely skill based.

    To me it's just a more complex TF2. My only complaint is a good team on either side can make games incredibly short. I really wish they had a few more game modes that allowed you to screw around a bit.
