I didn't want to make a 'WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE HERO' thread but this is essentially that without having to make the commitment to picking an actual literal favorite.
Overwatch has a colorful assortment of characters and at least one of them is bound to interest you or click with you, be it for their abilities or their personality or even their looks. Whatever. It's all good. With the beta approaching its open phase I figured now's a good a chance as any to see which hero or heroes people are liking to play. For those of you who haven't played yet, is there a particular hero you're interested in? For those of you who HAVE played, is the hero you like different than the one you expected to like going in? Let's just talk about the characters, alright?
The character I am liking the most is definitely Mei, which is surprising because in the defense heroes I was sure I'd be all in on Hanzo. But I really like Mei, she's adorable which is, well, adorable but also really good at controlling the other team (or being annoying, which is always fun). It's great on the Assault and the Control gametypes when she's defending and can effectively halt the enemy team's push or funnel them towards chokepoints with just a simple well placed ice wall. Her self heal is also really handy, especially when the attacking team decides to just go all in in the last minute and unload ultimates in the control point. I can't tell you how many times I've managed to keep the point contested while my team arrives to push the enemy away thanks to the ice block. Mei is definitely the hero I am going to use the most.
I'm also enjoying Lucio and Mercy when it comes to healing, though Mercy is a bit boring after constantly having to be the one to fill a support role. Lucio I just like because he uses the power of music and seems like he'd be right at home in a Jet Set Radio game. I want to like D.Va more than I do but I dunno, she's just not clicking for me. Zarya is also interesting me but I haven't had time yet to really get some games in with her.
On the offense side I mostly tend to stay away because I'm actually bad at offense. When I need to I go with Pharah or McCree. Pharah because I can sometimes get lucky with rockets and McCree because I like him better than the other offense people.
So, duders, who're you liking?
