Soooo hello everyone! Been a while since i've had any contact with you whitestar people :D

 

I know only a handful of people know, or even remember, that in the start of November last year i decided to go to Austria to spend a full season there working as a Ski teacher.

 

It's been a long time, but the season is "finally" ending here next week, and then it's back home to Denmark where i can relax again, and reunite with Whitestar!

 

I know i've been pretty crappy in keeping in contact with y'all and i don't wanna bore you with all the details! I've instead chosen to make an album of some pictures i've taken throughout my season, i might also upload a video or two once i get home. :)

 

If you guys have any questions about my trip, feel free to blast away!

 

As for gaming plans when i come home, I'm gonna boost up my WoW subscription again, probably shift mains to my Hunter instead of my trusty old pally. As to other games, i'll be playing Overwatch again, probably back on my two favourites McCree and Widow!

 

Anyhow here is the photo link:

TLDR: I'm coming home after 5 months in Austria :)

 

Looking forward to seeing you guys online soon!

@Jezziex & @JayTheBee sorry for getting fired up on the widowmaker discussion yesterday!

 

Big writeup incoming!

 

TLDR: Widowmaker is very broken. And Jessie and Jay should not feel that it's okay for her to be so strong :D

 

Widowmaker discussion thread: us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/…

Widowmaker POTG gif: gfycat.com/MiserlyTatteredHake

Team Fortress 2 Sniper montage: youtube.com/watch/?v=36-rzTA1B00

 

I saw these clips and really wanted to explain to you why you should not feel content with how overpowered Widowmaker is! <3

 

First: gfycat.com/MiserlyTatteredHake

 

In the first clip we see a Global Elite (the highest) ranked CS:GO player picking off 5 people from the enemy team in no time. He is clearly very skilled, not gonna argue about that. The thing is:

Charge rate=1second

0% charge deals 17 dmg.

100% Charged widowmaker deals 170 dmg.

100% headshot, x2 deals 340 dmg.

 

With a recharge rate of 1 second, if skilled as the above clip, in theory you'd be able to kill a full enemy team in around 6-7 seconds. Which is WAY too fast. And this is even without dmg help from teammates.

 

I'm gonna compare this to the Sniper from Team Fortress 2:

 

youtube.com/watch/?v=36-rzTA1B00

 

The sniper in TF2 have the same basics as widowmaker, charged shot and stuff. Just some key differences:

 

Charge rate is 3 seconds.

0% charge deals 50 dmg

100% deals 150

0% headshot deals 150

100% headshot x3 deals 450.

 

Now in TF2 the sniper is able to oneshot two classes with 0% headshot, the medic 150hp (zenyatta) and the scout 125hp (tracer). If he wants to kill some of the classes with over 175 health, he either needs to wait 2-3 seconds, or hit two headshots in a row. So killing a team of 6 would take way more time.

 

This is imo a better way of balancing a sniper, rewarding a high skill level with good dmg headshots, and punishing only doing bodyshots.

 

Now i think the charge time of widowmaker shots is the real problem, but there are other things that add to the mix. Her sniper is semi-automatic (can stay scoped after a shot). And if people jump her, she's has great tools for an escape, compared to the tf2 sniper which has none. Her sniper magazine is also veeery big. And to end it, her fire-rate is very high as well. so dealing a 150 bodyshot can quickly be followed up with another shot to finish the enemy off.

 

It's like widowmaker has no downsides at all, only upsides. She's going to be a complete menace at higher MMR's.

 

A_Seagull, a pro overwatch streamer, also got asked on stream the other day, "how you counter a good widow?". His answer was "if you find out, please tell me"

 

To make the post even longer, i found this thread discussing different options in changing widowmaker: us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/…

cant believe I missed this.. someone get me back on discord! I agree IF people start getting good with widowmaker she will be troublesome to a team, luckily enough almost everyone who plays her is dopey as fuq and my Fav char is her worst enemy.. she is the equivalent to an AWP from CSS and Hanzo is the smidt scout, skilled players use the scout and improve.. easy mode point and clickers choose the AWP and have it so easy they don't feel the need to improve.

 

Either away just jump on her face and watch her scurry around frantically searching for an escape. Win!

the only "problem" with this game is that everyone is overpowered, i've been on the end of some realllllly good hanzo's when most people says hes not that powerful, chances are they are just good players and i need to get better at the game.

yus Xera has the right idea! everyone OP as fuq but its all down to the stars.

I could be wrong but the star system to me means:

1 star. Char is easy to pick up and play thus deemed OP because their power is easy to use and requires little skill however due to this they are easy to master and have little to offer than whats on the surface.

 

2 star. Char takes a bit of getting used too and is challenging to master, thus allowing people to discover hidden perks and ways to use the char that may not be the norm.

 

3 star. Char requires map knowledge, skill to play and is difficult to master but once you have mastered the char new and very powerful tactics and perks will cause everyone to say "HAX!!!" ect.

 

Eg. Bastion (1 star) thought to be the most OP thing since sliced bread now everyone knows how to counter him and with limited options isn't much of a threat.

 

Mei (3 star) short range and an odd weapon mechanic puts her at a disadvantage BUT good wall placement, well timed cryo-freeze and smart placement of her ULT can easily turn the tide of a match.
