Cheers love, the cavalry is here!
So taking a break from blogging about MKS and job hunt...
For those who don't know, Overwatch is a first-person shooter that is played 6v6 on various maps created by Blizzard Entertainment. If you're familiar with Team Fortress 2, it's a very similar style. Heroes are divided into 4 categories: offense, defense, tank and support. The aspect of Overwatch that I love the most is that each hero has a very different feel and playstyle, making the gameplay very dynamic and unpredictable.
Although the game is casual friendly, there's a huge competitive aspect to Overwatch. You can swap heroes in between deaths to counter the depending other team's composition and if you're defending or attacking. There are a few game modes available: assault, escort, control, and a mix of assault/escort. In assault, the attacking team fights to capture a series of objectives, while the defending team attempts to hold them off until the time runs out. For escort, the attacking team pushes a payload to a delivery point, while the defending team tries to keep the payload from reaching it's destination before time elapses. And finally, in control, both teams fight to control an objective for a certain amount of time, the first team to win 2 rounds wins the game.
