    This game has been announced for hours now and there is still no thread here. For shame!

    This looks awesome. It is apparently comprised of the FPS side of the recently scrapped Titan project.

    Blizzard could announce a game where you farm for shit and people would rejoice.

    Instead of slinging shit yourself did you bother to watch the trailers or any other gameplay footage? The hate that comes from anti-fanbois is just as ridiculous as the over the top love.

    It looks like the next evolution to team fortress 2 im looking forward to it. Any fps that deviates from the dull modern military shooter is interesting

    So this is what arises from the scraps of Titan... Guessing they decided to turn the pvp aspect into a stand-alone title to recoup some of the investment. Looks to be basically Team Fortress 2 combined with Monday Night Combat, which isn't a bad thing exactly. I mean looks like it would be a fun game, but it's also coming from a company who aren't exactly experienced with the fps genre.

    Still being a fps, the make or break will be the servers, no Aussie servers would be an instant dealbreaker.

    I've been frothing at the mouth since I saw the gameplay video. Can't wait for Blizzards Team Fortress.

    They have a pretty impeccable record for amazing games. It's not really surprising that people would be excited about another amazing game is it?

    That's debatable. It's usually just WoW players groveling at their feet.

    You've got no idea. Blizzard built their reputation ages ago, they were THE pc developer of the 90's. The only companies that even come close were LucasArts and id Software, both of which released some absolute howlers. In comparison Blizzard's strike rate is virtually impeccable.

    I just think that their games are way over hyped. I guess it's just me, I'm only really into their Diablo games(of which, 3 was massively disappointing and that game, and as an extension Blizzard, should be criticized).

    Looks pretty good to me. I enjoyed tf2 for a fair while. Not sure I would have played it if it weren't free though.

    I just know I'll be addicted to this game when it comes out. I've been pining for a good fast paced online shooter. CS is just a bit slow for my liking.

    I love the range of characters but can see myself playing the tanks a bit if all the other guys are going to have low health and die quickly.

    I have now played a little bit.

    Bad ping on US servers but still getting a good dose of what the game is like.

    You can use Pharah to rocket spam or Torbjorn to build turrets.

    The aim and shoot heroes are impossible to play with the high ping but from what I can tell they do work quite well and seem balanced. I could play McCree and Reaper ok but Tracer was just impossible.

    Mercy might heal a little too much but I'm not sure it's a huge problem, people just need to adapt to killing her off.

    I wouldn't think many people in Australia have been invited so far.

    Playing aim and shoot is very hard with the bad ping.

    I would assume once AU servers come around more people will be invited. Only then would I truly feel like you're missing out on something.
