At this point I doubt HL3 will ever surface. It's got too much hype on it which means if it ever released and didn't somehow mean the most everything to everyone, Valve would be blasted on about how the game took THIS long to be THIS not amazingly mind blowing. It would only hurt their revenue streams in Dota 2 and CSGO etc to spend time developing a game that could never be the thing it's hyped to be.

Honestly didn't think techomancer was a bad game. It had some flaws no doubt but not bad.

Overwatch patch 1.7 notes - Roadhog, D.Va and Ana nerfs, Sombra buffs and UI improvementsOverwatch patch 1.7 notes - Roadhog, D.Va and Ana nerfs, Sombra buffs and UI improvements

Sombra still needs a damage buff

Soldier still needs a tweak so he doesn't dominate DPS
[GM] SocietyX Avatar

Soldier is definitely good but I'd argue he was only dominate because of the tank meta being what it was. The tanks were SO Strong even their natural counter Reaper was left without options. With these nerfs coming down and especially to Ana who's the prop holding up the fatties under fire I think more DPS options open up naturally. Especially flankers like Tracer and Genji.

Community demands ban for Overwatch pro allegedly caught smurfingCommunity demands ban for Overwatch pro allegedly caught smurfing
[GM] SocietyX Avatar
I think the idea of smurfing is one that is kind of mixed in design purpose. Some "Pros" will smurf just to show players how to 'climb' in rank. Or they'll do gimmicky concepts like "One hero only" and other things for fun. It's meant to be entertaining and light hearted or educational. It sounds like what this guy did is just be Toxic and stroke his e-peen. That kind of behavior is often punishable by itself.

Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan asks for "better feedback" over gut instinctsOverwatch game director Jeff Kaplan asks for "better feedback" over gut instincts

To be honest I feel like DVA was in an OK place, the problem is the utility her shield offers her on top of her robustness and the damage she can do and her mobility makes her, like 76 is, good at pretty much everything and therefore always a solid pick. Because of her shield, her only good counters were Mei (who doesn't do enough dmg alone to take down her mech) and Zarya. Who of course is Zarya and can be pretty OP on her own in certain hands.
[GM] SocietyX Avatar

Dva was crazy broken. She didn't need HP buffs, and dmg buffs, and mobility buffs. She was meant to be this more mobile harasser / strafer kind of hero and she became the most tanky tank of the class. Not to mention she just charges into face of every DPS with 0 fear and spams absorb in every team fight. None of which made sense.

As someone who's played the beta's this is as big of a problem as you're probably all assuming it is. The disconnects and issues are numerous and rampant. I haven't noticed a "host advantage" per say but it's hard to know in that beta environment.Reply

There were 2 alphas, and you just broke the NDA of the second.

Because we know in this world where CEOs keep increasing their own salarys while slashing their employees benefits and giving themselves bonuses after tax payer bail outs is ethical business at work :P

Aw, I got downvoted? :(


I'm not saying that's what happens at the level of big business, just what business ethics classes will teach that an ideal business would do. Plus, don't people often praise Indie developers for NOT doing what big businesses do, for going by the "ideal business" playbook, with things like ethics (refunding users even under extreme circumstances, such as with Arcen Games and Emergency Raptor), transparency, going the extra mile to appease users, etc...?


Just saying that the typical "darling" indie dev model almost requires this kind of action.

What a world.. has it really become so toxic in this country that now Developers are letting who they make games for be decided by POLITICS? As if you can afford to make business choices as an indie dev based on if someone likes Trump or not.. holy..Reply

To be fair, any business class will tell you that business choices should be motivated by ethics, not profits (theory being that being ethical will lead to profits), which is obviously what these companies are basing this choice on.

Overwatch's hitboxes have been improved in the PTR - now match character models more closelyOverwatch's hitboxes have been improved in the PTR - now match character models more closely

Of course it's good for the game. No FPS game that even considers calling itself competitive should be aim assisting people so they get free head shots for spamming bad aim. Besides Hanzo is not a huge factor in dealing with Tracers.

Most FPS games don't have the varied character models, speed, abilities. If it was something like arena based shooter where everyone had same hitboxes, abilities, etc, then it would have made sense. Right now, Hanzo has very high difficulty as it is, with this it will simply stop people from using him once and for all. I am almost 100% sure this will get back to the old hitboxes.
