Yeah so I just had one of the worst games I played. We couldn't even get up the stairs let alone past the first choke at Anubus.

Yeah, pretty much. I've ran into a lot of kids too and I just mute mics in general sometimes, but it's good when people know what they're doing. I suck at Mercy, but I usually upvote the people who play her unless there was a truly impressive play by someone else.

Nice, I'll have to try it when I have more time.

The thing about that is that the Widowmaker dude doesn't change to support either though. And that tends to be true--the one complaining doesn't usually step up to the plate and fuels the Mei peeps. Balance is good, but when you have, say, a team of just snipers and the sniper complains, wellllll.

I haven't tried the assault map yet, but I'll probably play again over the weekend. A good map for Pharah sounds like my kind of map.

That's also my experience as well. The person who complains on mic the most is often the one who is the most useless no matter which character they happen to be playing. Tho in my case they happen to be kids which is why I mute my mic when I play and don't talk unless I hear that people are communicating effectively. Also, I love playing Mercy.

But yeah, they are plenty of hight points for snipers, plenty of corners for Symettra and Torb to place turrets.

Fire Nation is pretty dang cool :D  I wanted a different tattoo that had the four elements and Raava with Vaatu... but it would have been hecking expensive and waaaaaay more line work

I like their fire symbol a lot. ^^ That also sounds cool, but is completely understandable why you didn't spring for it, omg...both time and money would be difficult, and the one you got is cool anyway!

Yeah and the PAIN! This one hurt a good bit. Especially the watertribe swirlies

Oh man, that too--so many LINES. But you made it through and got a rad tatt. B]

Orisa is adorable. And the complaining dudes can suck it--I have two female characters I want to play even in a game as diverse as Overwatch.

So true lol

I've seen it before, but it's still perfection. I'm the Mei at the beginning, except I play Pharah. XD
I agree with the Widowmaker dude when playing comp. If we don't have a well rounded team we are going to lose and when you lose at comp yours and everyone else's SR goes down. I agree with the Mei when we are in quick play. Yeah it's still annoying when someone playing Hanzo or Widowmaker won't switch when we lack a healer, a tank, or adequate DPS but aside from the game we are not loosing anything of real importance. As long as we're in quick play or the arcade I let people play who they want without going on mic and complain.


Anyway, how about that new assault map. I love playing Horizon Lunar Colony. I love being Torbjorn, Symettra, Widowmaker, and Pharah on this map.

Television and Movies / Re: WONDER WOMAN (2017)
« Last post by Sailor_Tenchi on June 27, 2017, 12:18:15 AM »
(click to show/hide)I think a big part of it is the medium too though--Xena is a show, whereas Wonder Woman is a "Hollywood blockbuster" and all. Because there was a Wonder Woman TV series too, but it was only Superman and Batman going to the big screens for a long, long time. Xena and Buffy too, for that matter, are remembered fondly regardless of any understandable imperfections, but are sort of a different beast in that way. Legitimate or not, there is something considered prestigeous about getting a film on the big screen. Distribution is also a lot different. (Especially world-wide and all.) Backlash, I feel, is something of a current trend--with the rise of the internet, immediate reactions are a lot more visible and given current...political and cultural climates, there is a lot of nonsense making itself known. It also doesn't help that there was a whole scandal where Ike Perlmutter--a higher up in the comics industry, who once had a hand in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, insisted that female-leads wouldn't sell. (Feige has since separated the MCU from Perlmutter and Wonder Woman has done well to prove him wrong, but it remains a significant turning point given all that.)

And I am too. I totally get it--it's an interesting subject, for better or for worse.
