STONEWALLWATCH WEEKEND - Overwatch free team up!

August 20 2018



DISCORD MEET UP
24th - 2th AUG 2018


This weekend see's Overwatch the incredibly popular team game giving us a Free to play weekend.
Its free to download from Thurs 23rd, its a few GBs so there will be plenty of time to download it in time for the weekend.

Go here to download (on the 23rd): https://playoverwatch.com

We talk in our SGN discord all the time about teaming up in games outside of our usial STO, GW2 and SWTOR.. and thought it would be fun to team up and play Overwatch as a community.

For anyone who wouldnt think its a fun game.. it is.. it is a first person shooter.. but you have a HUGE choice of who you can play by choosing any hero you like... 
Its not to serious, you have fun, you wont have to worry about other players, you don't need incredible FPS responses.

In fact this game gives you choices of who you want to play...

you have a vast selection of Heros to pick who you want to take into battle.. and with them they bring there special abilitys.. each unique and really helps build a great team.
A tank..
A healer..
A Sniper
A pew pew magician
So so many to choose from!

As I said, it wont be serious.. it will just be for fun with friends here, I die an awful lot.. so im not the best.


Once you download.. jump into the "Practice Range" before you play with anyone.. and choose the different heros to practice with, and see what there unique abilitys do, this should give you an idea of who you think will be the best hero for you to play.



----------------------------------

DETAILS


hang around SGN Discord during the weekend,(Fri 24th - 27th) and look out for shout outs in teaming up in overwatch.

there are no fixed times, just whoevers about at the time and fancies a play.


Myself, @gravity and @kierix will be calling out mostly for team ups..
but if you have the game.. feel free to call out on discord too!


Dont worry if you think you wont be any good, Overwatch is all about doing what you can, plus it will be funny!


-----------------------------------



===============


ABOUT THE GAME:


YOU CAN BE THE FIRST PERSON SHOOTER:


Run right into battle destroying everything that gets within your line of sight





YOU CAN BE THE GUARD SUPPORT:


Dont like to be in the thick of it? we will always need someone to guard the base, you could choose a hero that can build a turret, or a hero that hides in the balcony with her sniper rifle taking down enemy's one by one from a distance




YOU CAN PROTECT OTHER TEAM MATES:


YOU can be a tank that will throw up a huge shield so your team mates can gather up behind you and pick off your enemy's from safety.. or barge into enemy spaces and cause confusion to break up there team




YOU CAN BE THE LIFE SAVER THAT EVERYONE NEEDS:


run along with another hero and boost his powers.. or run around to different team mates healing them with your healing beams so they are constantly in top health despite getting shot at, or create gateways to jump the just spawned team mates back into action without running all the way back.




This game you can play as any hero, after you play for a while and try out all the various hero options, and see what they can bring to a team.. and you will go into any match with confidence and you will begin to get player of the game quite a lot.

Anyone who shys away from FPS, sadly tarnised by the COD venomous playerbase... this is the game for you to see how much fun it actually can be.


here are a couple of videos that show what you can do in the game as a team..

and a little guide about Roles you can play..



===




With all this said..  this weekend.. overwatch is free!! 

This is the perfect time to try something new.. among this safe community,.. get to know people, have fun.. who knows.. you may even want to buy overwatch after the trial weekend... btw.. its on sale!!!

I'll be joining for the free #Overwatch weekend, although I'm admittedly awful at the game.  If I'm the downfall of the whole #StonewallWatch team, you can't say that you haven't been warned.

I'm terrible at PVP, but then I've been playing some of these characters already on Heroes of the Storm, so maybe i'll give it a go.

Well I downloaded the game and tried the tutorial, the graphics are great and it looks like it could be fun but this is simply not for me. I have always failed at FPS games, mainly because my bad left hand cannot coordinate WASD movement. Games where a right-handed mouse controls movement are fine, but if I have to move the avatar with my left hand it just won't work. Le sigh. :(

I think she's the Overwatch AI that Winston interacts with in his video short: "Recall"
