Rank #3: 03 - Omnic Lab: Basics: Offensive Heroes

Podcast cover
Read more

In the Lab today we are covering the basics for heroes, Offensive heroes! We’ll dive into specializations for each hero, who they synergize with, and how to build a team with these offensive heroes in different scenarios! We’re going in depth to talk about Tracer, Solider 76, Reaper, McCree, & Pharah.

News & Patch Notes: (5 min) *Beta Test Weekend Recap: *Closed Beta Testing ends April 25th 10:00 Pacific (1:00am April 26th Eastern) *Developer Update Video: The Road to Launch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoYGzPtehBQ  *Reminder Dates:  May 3-4 is early access Beta Time for those who pre-purchased Overwatch before April 29th May 5-9 is Open Beta (even for consoles) *Confirmed: All player progress achieved for Closed and Open Beta accounts do NOT carry over when the game launches. You will all begin at level 1 with no rewards. *Changes will not be drastic until just after launch *Immediately looking for more competitive mode changes, features, and iterations *Spectator Mode is something they’re looking to do also *Free Heroes and Maps is also something to look to post-launch *Pacing for changes in the game will be evaluated after launch to keep it fresh.

*Patch Notes: *No more White Portraits! Everyone is Bronze for levels 1-100. *Removed a few less popular sprays. *Hanamura temporarily disabled for spawn issues. *Route 66: Payload slowed by 10% *Route 66: Adjusted health pack spots *Volskaya Industries: Moved Spawn points further back 

TOPIC: General Offense Team building and composition in Overwatch can go quite in depth and requires a certain knowledge of the different heroes and their nuances to really grasp it.  Knowing each Hero’s strengths, weaknesses and synergies opens up a lot of creative potential when building a team.

*Competitive Example: (Control, Lijiang Tower) - Cloud9 (2 Tracer, 2 Winston, 2 Lucio) Vs Luminosity (2 McCree, Bastion, Zarya, Mercy, Lucio)

Offense: General Purpose:  Single Target and Splash Damage Output, Mobility and Infiltration Offense Heroes tend to trade off survivability in favor of mobility and an upfront  damage edge. 

*Tracer: The Harasser.  *S76: Frontline Soldier. *Reaper: Close Range Flanker. (Shotgunner) *McCree: The Skirmisher. (1v1 me Bro!) *Pharah: Airborne Assault (Splash) *Genji: Silent Assassin, Flanker and The Counterplayer.

In the Lab today we are covering the basics for heroes, Defense heroes! We’ll dive into specializations for each hero, who they synergize with, and how to build a team with these offensive heroes in different scenarios! We’re going in depth to talk about Bastion, Hanzo, Junkrat, Mei, Torbjorn, and Widowmaker

News & Patch Notes:  *Reminder Dates: May 24th - Game release date! *Confirmed: All player progress achieved for Closed and Open Beta accounts do NOT carry over when the game launches. You will all begin at level 1 with no rewards.

*Patch Notes: Open Beta Extended! May 10th is now the cutoff date at 10AM PDT (1PM EST) http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20743735540

General Play for Defense Heroes: Defense heroes excel at holding down areas and at zoning enemies out of objectives. They are great at tracking and scouting enemies and can provide very valuable information for their whole team. Defense heroes can also pack a punch which they trade off with some of the mobility that some offense heroes have.

Brian K, Eric S, and Blackbyrd thanks again for your generous pledges for the Scientist Level of support, when your payment clears we’ll get started on your perks! Also thanks to our brand new Patrons this week: Kris C., Mike S., and Chris S.!

TOPIC The 3 Solo Q All-Star Heroes:--Zarya, Soldier 76 & Lucio-- Considered the best in solo Q because in a pinch these heroes can fill (to a certain extent) every roll needed in a team. Sustain and Protection: Lucio: Team heal and ultimate shield, Zarya: Shields for self and the team, half of health self-heals, S76: Emergency heal in a pinch. Damage Pressure: Lucio: Bullet fodder (spam), with no damage fall off, Zarya: Great close and mid-range spam that can hit really hard, S76: most consistent damage at all ranges. High Mobility: Lucio: Wall ride and speed boost, Zarya: Rocket Jump., S76: Rocket Jump and Sprint.  Powerful Ults: Versatile ultimates that can be used pro-actively or reactively. Ability to Contest Objectives: The combination of their kit allows them to stand on objectives and provides incentives for allies to do the same.

Hero Strawpoll: We’d like to go in depth into this kind of strategy for specific heroes. We’d like to start with well rounded heroes and heroes that we are familiar with, help us chose from these five! http://www.strawpoll.me/10555616

Podcast cover

In the Lab today Andres wants to come at the game of Overwatch from a completely different angle than we usually do. We want to talk about the mental game of Overwatch, more specifically identifying and exploiting advantages. Playing in the past, present, or future is the main thrust here. What is your mental game maturity level? How can you develop your ability to predict? How do the pros predict engagements and ultimates?
