  1. When the cooldowns are reduced:

      Me and my friend basically have a combo that breaks total mayhem at this point, he goes Doomfist, and I go Sombra. I take down abilities, leaving characters defenceless to his attacks.

      And I swear, there is no greater feeling in this world than constantly deactivating Pharah's abilities.

      Sombras are getting good now and it's slightly frightening.

      Don't worry, she's still pretty terrible on console. 

      Well, mainly because no one can aim to actually finish off characters on console, so what typically happens is 

      >deactivate ability

      >no teammates around

      >shoot desperately to try kill the enemy

      >three enemies kill you

      And that's Console!Sombra.

    4. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Well, PC!Sombra, in the right hands, is a beast. 

      Note, in the right hands. I had one match where I literally kept punching her to death. It was kinda sad.

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      On console, her and Ana are kind of in the same area. Both can be really effective in the right hands, constantly deactivating abilities, being sneaky, EMPing at the right time etc etc, but Ana's problem is most players don't have good aim, especially in High Platinum/Diamond and in Quick Play, and Sombra doesn't have a lot of people bothering to learn her effectively. I've been using Total Mayhem to try learn her because there's more of a safety net there for screwing up, it allows me to learn good ways to flank enemies, and take down their abilities before getting out, or if they're weak, finishing them.

      I would actually prefer to cooperate and play Overwatch. I main Lucio, because someone has to keep the DPS dumbasses alive with a friendship circle. Now come over here and let's have a party on the payload.

    4. DiamondX

      But I don't have Overwatch...

      But I want to get it. Don't know if  PS4 or PC.

    8. Nepenthe

      PC. Faster updates, a working reporting system, and better aim assist controls. Some characters are apparently nigh unplayable on console.

      @Jovahexeon Ace Joranvexeon I don't have Smesh.

      Hooray you play a healer.

      I mainly play Mercy.

      (Although I am wearing a Rein t-shirt)

    14. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      xD I got tired of teams never putting a healer on so I started instalocking him. Plus Lucio is super fun to play, and I'm guaranteed a gold medal in something without having to be the best killer. So why not?

    15. Boomer

      Boomer

      I just like people owing me :lol:

      And I mean normally I choose between being tank or healer, way too many people just play DPS...

    16. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      I only like tanking if I've got a got healer who's gonna pocket me. Just stand next to me and I can do a little work as Orisa.

    17. DiamondX

      What would be a good starting character?

      @Diamond Dragon X Soldier is recommended as the starter because he's a jack-of-all-trades gateway character from traditional FPS games. If you've touched CoD, you'll know how he plays. Plus, he's got some nice abilities like sprint and area healing to give you staying power. However, feel free to try everyone in Quick Play games until you find your niche(s). You should ideally be able to play one single character in each of the four classes.

      @Josh Long time no see!

    20. DiamondX

      DiamondX

      So I have to main 4 characters?

      I played OW once  when it was a free weekend.

      I think I played with Soldier 76.

    21. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Well, I main Lucio. However, I can be effective with Soldier, Pharah, Reaper, Junkrat, Winston, and Orisa. Sometimes, Lucio isn't needed or isn't working as well as I'd like him too, or I'm just dying too often. Team comps and skill levels can alter the flow of a match on the fly, so to be as effective as possible you need to be flexible. But that's the fun of Overwatch.

      If you want to main only one character however, no one's going to fuss if you main a healer or a traditional tank. xD

      Overwatch and a Lucio main, two good decisions at once. 

      I love playing Lucio myself as a main healer, he was even my first gold gun and the character I trained to comp with in terms of healing, at least at first.

      But then I realised I'm on console and unless playing with friends, typically end up getting stuck with a team who don't wanna group up because as we all know, flanking on defence is the best way to handle things.

      and that's the story of why I have to play Mercy on Season 6 as opposed to the funnest healer around.

      But yeah, good to see you around again.

      @Diamond Dragon X It's not a case of having to pick mains, but Overwatch is built on team composition and in general, trying to be flexible. Every hero is simple to pick up and have skills that transfer over to other characters, but again, it's all about hero composition. If you want to win, sometimes you have to bite the bullet and pick a character you might dislike or not play who you want to play as in order to help your team. In most cases, if your team runs 5 DPS characters, running Hanzo or Genji, or someone like that typically means your team will likely lose.

      Of course you show up when I'm napping as I am absolutely exhausted from working so much...

      The working world is something else ain't it? Nice to see you around here again Nep! ?

      Hi Kiah! Long time no see!

      And it certainly is. I close again tomorrow. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuun.

    So Priebus got fired/resigned and it was announced on Twitter. You can never tell what's gonna happen in a day in Trump's America™.

    What are your top and bottom 5 Sonic games?

    Sorry to say, but we don't really allow list topics of this nature; this thread should give you a good idea on what kinds of topics we do and don't like to see.

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    I don't think people here understand the gravity of what McCain did. They've been hammering the healthcare bill so many times because of budget reconciliation where you basically get a toss-up on a bill and get to vote on it for 50 Senate votes instead of 60. If it doesn't go to a vote at all, as what has been happening, you get to start it over with reconciliation rules still in play. Instead of doing the Merry-Go-Round yet again, they allowed it to come to a vote in the Senate because they presumed that they finally had the votes to pass it through McCain. However, he said no, against everyone's expectations. That means it's dead for the entire fiscal year (they don't have 60 votes) and McConnell, Ryan, and the rest of their objectivist, obstructionist ilk can thoroughly go fuck themselves. Letting it come to this point was ultimately the best case scenario for at-risk Americans and Democrats, especially since McCain is probably not long for this world anyway. Republicans are now stuck between a rock and a hard place-- They've got nothing to show for all of the theater they've done, and they've further opened the course for a blue sweep in midterms should they try this shit again next year (and they probably will, because campaign promises and their inherent general assholery). So, cater to your deplorable constituents and remind the rest of America that you tried to kill them last year, or actually do the right thing at the risk of your seat in deep red counties? Decisions, decisions.

    Here's the utterly delicious kicker if true. Basically, they're doing this to force Democrats to potentially campaign on an obviously egregious violation of human decency come the midterms (else they face potential backlash from their own base), hoping the Rust Belt will decry this as the Dems playing (non-white) social politics and vote against them out of spite. So congratulations to Hillary on ultimately being right. Even Republican politicians think their own base is deplorable enough to use this as political leverage.

    So Trump randomly decided on his own to disbar transgender individuals from military service because fuck them (also probably needs a distraction issue.)

      One of the things about the series was making it easy for kids to draw like take robotnik's design for example

    I'm slowly but surely getting used to the voices, and generally every clip I see warms me up more and more to it. Cautiously optimistic for it!
  13. I have no opinion of IDW or Sonic comics, so have some art of the one fan character I used to not like but now I like again because he has a personality now, hedgehog hate be damned:

      Maybe you should apply to IDW for a job as an artist? Also nice character

      He looks like ashura lol

      Wow, Scrouge's redesign for the comics looks great!

      (Nice work.)

      Is that Manic as a stoner or something?

      @Josh Looool, he actually was based off Ashura! I just made the black parts a darker green.

      @Dejimon11 If they're doing an open hiring process, I might. Although I need to do some comic stuff. Haven't in a really long time.

      @SenEDDtor Missile My hedgie is a powerless 20-year old drunkard who likes black fashion. He is absolutely perfect.

    6. Wraith

      Asura is usually rethought as a saiyanhog type char so this is refreshing

    7. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      My hedgie has always been without powers as a basic starting point in any work or RP, aside from basic rolls and things. Makes him more fun to write about or put on an adventure since he can't Saiyan his way out of an issue.

      Awesome work as always Nep! :) 

  14. All that emotional turmoil for nothing.
