I've been meaning to try Roadhog. Maybe tonight if I get done all my ****.

Also... a good Bastion... how 2 counter?

Playing characters that can get into this position easily, like Genji or Tracer, can work.

Genji can also deal with bastion by reflecting his shots with his E, along with some other focus fire from teammates.

Okay. Never played either. Will practice tonight if I have time.

Yep that's 76, I also find that roadhog can be effective as hooking bastion takes him out of sentry mode, you just have to hook him before you die.

For me it's not that bad, it might take a bit of practice to land some of the harder hooks but it's really awesome when you throw out a hook really far and pull in someone you weren't expecting. :)

Most video game characters with grappling moves are like that though.  If you can nail those hard grabs you're ballin' but if you can't you're just a scrub :))

I've had decent luck with McCree and Widowmaker countering Bastion, too.  Can usually pick him off at range.

I have been getting stomped the last couple nights :(  It seems like there is little to no actual matchmaking, as I'm not even level 10 yet and I keep ending up against people in their 30s and 40s.

absyrd, I'm doing mine on an i3 with 16 GB of RAM and a 860m/750ti equivalent. Runs fine on a mixture of high/ultra settings with a few things toned down to low (e.g. local fog) at 30 FPS solid without any frame dips.
oh nice, I have a 970, and I can run epic settings and get around 58-72fps on a 2k monitor.

edit: hit me up fools.

solo queuing in this game is really bad. people just pick whatever hero they feel like, and go off through the map alone as lone wolves. all you can really do is just practice with specific heroes, give up all hope of coordination.

playing in a 6-man with voice chat on the other hand is a fantastic experience. i encourage everyone who's mostly played alone to join a party. i was fortunate that most of the people i played csgo with migrated to this game tho.

KDA went up to 4.18 but winrate dropped to like 70% :\ Felt like some games I just wasn't hitting shots and being impactful enough. 16 losses now but meaningless leaderboard rankings are looking good :D

As a Mercy main I can say that it's hard having teammates who can't pull their own.
So frustrating to have to rely on teammates being able to take care of things for you.
Though on the bright side healers make bad players good.  ^-^ ^-^ ^-^

Here is what I've come up with playing 1 game at a time random through the day:

1. If someone is level 50 and instantly starts telling everyone what to play, leave game. They'll probably be the one sucking most.
2. If someone's mic is open for the entirety of the countdown period, leave game. The noise will only get worse.
3. If you want to win, play with friends on a consistent basis. I can't really do this right now as all my old gaming friends are scattered, and I can't find most of them after this many years of not gaming.

Despite the annoyances, I'm still having loads of fun. I really haven't explored many characters yet. I basically play Junkrat, Reinhardt, or Mercy because I feel like I'm contributing when I do so (while enjoying myself).
