    All Doomfist skins, sprays, emotes, etc dropped yesterday. What do you guys think of the skins? Posted in the OP. I've been playing a fuck ton of Doomfist on PTR and I'm pretty sure he'll be my new main once he hits.

    Skins aren't bad, that metal one is slick. I'm sure I'm going to be playing him a lot too, he seems too Meta to ignore, he is the holy prophet of the dive comp.

    re: @SleepyBoy 's comments from previous thread about Zen, Lucio, and Mercy, I agree.

    I play a lot of Lucio, Zen, and Winston, and having Zen's discord orb on an enemy while playing Winston makes a big difference. Mercy doesn't have the escapability and self-sustain of Lucio nor the firepower of Zen if an enemy Winston or Dva gets in her face, so I can see why she's being picked less.

    I'm liking all of those Doomfist skins. Cheetah one looks cool but too bad there's not more contrast--lots of brown and yellow makes the spots stand out less. I'm digging the Papa Shongo one and the mohawks.

    I honestly like the epic skins more than the legendaries. The one with the black gauntlet and white body paint is super dope.

    Yeah, both his epics are nice. I like the blue Leg color scheme as well, I just wish the mask didn't clash so much, they should have given him a darker mask with glowing blue eyes or something. I've got a couple thousand gold saved up, not sure whether to buy a Leg skin day one or bet on them releasing something sick in the next event.

    I'm gonna go with an Epic skin and save my coin til he gets a dope legendary from an event. His current legendaries are just two underwhelming right now. I agree they should have added glowing eyes and a darker mask. Would have helped it for sure.

    Yeah, its nice when a epic skin really does it for you. I think its a solid start, just kind of weak on the recolors. I love green so I might buy that one day one, but it's going to be awesome when they release the "pre-omnic" Doomfist, or a Boxing version. I'm really starting to dread playing against him in Competitive, it's hard enough Supporting morons right now.

    Halloween has the best skins imo,

    Reaper's pumpkin
    Pharah
    Roadhog
    Ana's awesome skin, etc


    Since Halloween is coming soon enough i think Doomfist may get a good skin as well.


    Let's see, he will probably get an African witch doctor skin -. -

    @SleepyBoy Lucio+Sombra is probably the best defense combo for Volskaya and Anubis, at the higher ranks at least, especially the final points on each. If your team is willing to play off the health packs you can have EMP every fight, which if used right is a fight won.

    I agree, and I think it's the community's resistance to being creative but yet still intelligent at the same time.

    Sombra can do a ton of healing, how most people don't know about this by now is kinda silly.

    Sombra is one of the most fun but by far I think the most complex.

    I think a lot of people don't want to try it because it can instantly tilt your team. Your team has to cooperate for Sombra to be effective and if they're pissed off about the pick they won't. A lot of the time people will still take 2 healers when a Sombra is picked and if they do you usually won't have the damage needed to follow up on the emp.

    True, and the other thing is for now. Sombras need to be a little more vocal on which health pack is hacked, why it is so advantageous to grab that quickly replenishing health pack and coordinate the ult... At least for now until people catch on.

    What's still weird about it is that people have no problem running the cheeky double builder cancer comp but they lose their shit if someone picks a Sombra.

    I was just playing a game and sym stops and I say over the chat looks like we're about to get a shield generator. Then the red box comes in screen.

    Never mind, it looks like we're getting a disconnect instead lol

    Sombra has the lowest win rate of any hero across most teirs. She's complex, but when you learn her she's so fucking awesome

    Oh FFS the leavers and toxicity is killing me. played like 10 games this evening, and had leavers in over half of them.

    One guy came back.."Sorry I had to let out my dog" this was on escort the payload. He didn't think to do this BEFORE he sat down to play.

    I had a duo stack that came in together as friends and ended up going at each other the whole match. I could hear their friendship being destroyed real time over a stupid game of OW.

    and the last game there was a four stack and one guy just kept on blaming people, our reaper specifically.. so the reaper eventually left. the other three people in the stack were like.."dude you're becoming so toxic and negative, every match you're going at some one" and of course he was like "well he sucks"

    ..sigh

    fucking overwatch

    I was playing 3vs3 elimination, there was just me and a D.va on my team and an enemy Pharah that i had gotten down to 10 hp before being killed by a stray rocket.

    I relax thinking hey it's just child's play and the D.va will take care of it. Pharah keeps shooting rockets and the D.va keeps looking at the opposite direction where Pharah is. I'm like, 'is this player a kid or someone playing for the first time?' but they were level 150,how could it be ?

    Then after the mech gets destroyed the D.va keeps shooting her blaster at the empty sky and gets killed. Well it should have been obvious but of course next game the person does the same thing. Asshole was throwing the game in the most aggravating way possible.

    ...and I am officially out.

    Can't even go 2 games without a thrower. Not only are they throwing, they're actively trying to mess up their own teammates. I had to play four rounds with some cry baby that started throwing because he couldn't pick the person he wanted to.

    So he picked mei, trying to wall us off and block damage for the enemy as much as possible.

    We couldn't even have a fair 5 v 6, which we were winning until he went from throwing himself of the ledge to assisting the other team with mei.

    This game is now getting me heated, it's supposed to be fun, but it's not anymore.

    Blizzard is doing nothing about it. It's making the whole community toxic, even me at this point, and I always try to be positive but there's only so much bullshit a man can take.

    I would love to play again if I wasn't so sure that at least 40-60% of my games weren't affected by throwers and leavers. And winning via throwers is garbage too, not fun at all.

    Soon as blizzard fixes this shit I'm back, but until then I just can't deal with half of the games people going out of their way to ruin things for everyone else. It's such a waste of time.
