  1. Pearce founded Blizzard with Mike Morhaime and J. Allen Brack Quite the week for the old guard stepping down with Tim Willits announcing his departure from id after 24 years yesterday.

  5. I couldn't be happier about this. Yes, it takes away some freedom of choice. But it also means that they no longer have to weigh balancing vs pro-play vs regular play. Right now, for example, Brigitte is very useful and over-used in pro-play as a third healer. In order to mitigate this, they had to nerf her and as a result she is now useless in a 2-healer comp (pros use 3-3 composition of tank and healer, using no dps). This is going to invigorate the game a huge amount I think, and make balancing the meta a lot easier (and making more heroes viable). Some heroes in particular (Sombra, Brigitte) will likely see major overhauls. I wouldn't be surprised to see Sombra be also completely eliminated in her current state, similar to the changes made to Symmetra and Torb years ago. I'm watching the video now, here are the highlights: - Will affect all major modes (Comp, QP) - Choose role ahead of time, queue separately - Can change heroes within role at any time - Will have separate MMR and SR (match-making rating, skill rating) for each role (this is huge, as I may be a 2798 tank, but only 2200 DPS) - Play 5 placement matches for any individual role before competitive play - Season 17 ending early. Beta-comp season starting Aug 13 (to Sept 1) to test new queue - Make new arcade mode called "Quickplay Classic" to play without role lock - Will be bonus rewards for playing roles with shorter queue times (to convince damage dealers to play other roles, and reduce wait times that could be 20-30 min)

  8. This can be the new "what are you playing this weekend" thread. Lately, I've been completely absorbed in Persona 5. It's amazing. I played 10 hours when it first released, quit for over a year, now I'm back at it, hardcore. Just completed the 4th palace last night. I absolutely adore the mix of traditional turn-based RPG play and social simulation. I'm over 40 hours in and still have a looong way to go, but I'm enjoying the ride quite a bit.

  11. I saw a little of this game at E3. This game looks like a sequel to Contra Hard Corps on the Genesis.
