I think I'm approaching it too much like a standard team based FPS (CoD, Battlefield, Quake etc) and not enough like a MOBA, a genre in which I have negligible experience.
I enjoy some bot match action in Overwatch but the actual thing of playing against other humans just hasn't ever clicked with me either.

Finished Assassins Creed Syndicate...I'm a bit behind in the series after I took a hiatus after AC3. I quite enjoyed the game, they captured the essence of Victorian London quite well and I found it an easier game to follow than AC Unity. It'll be a couple of months before I move onto AC Origins...I find myself needing a break between Ubisoft open world games and I need to move onto something a bit more linear, like Wolfenstein.

I play in spurts. I wonít touch it for 3 months then Iíll play it most nights for 2 months. Repeat. Itís changed so much from when I first got it. They keep nerfing characters and it really affected me when they changed D.Va as she suited my play style perfectly. Now I mainly play Junkrat and Orissa with the occasional Sombra.

I have never really got into competitive seasons. I only use Quick play and Arcade. And youíre right, the style is quite different to CoD and the like. You have to approach different levels/game types differently depending on what your objective is and who you have on your team/up against. Playing with a headset helps heaps.

What are you playing it on? Tactics in PC version are vastly different to console.

I'm on PC.

My best character is Orisa. I'm slowly climbing the competitive season ranks with her.

I'm decent with any of the more standard DPS characters (Soldier 76, Tracer, Sombra, Reaper etc).

Would love to get better at D.Va.

Anyone getting shadow of the tomb raider? I like the ultimate edition but only want the soundtrack, bottle opener and torch. All the dlc stuff and statue i dont need. Im hoping you can unlock the weapons later in the game. Wish they would add the extra tombs to the game. Its disappointing that they use such things to try and drive sales and profit.

Yeah Iíll be getting it, having played and enjoyed the precious two on PC. Will be getting it from somewhere like GMG; I donít need any DLC or collectible stuff.

The Tomb Raider series has been my favourite since the original game, so I'm eagerly waiting it. The last two games were excellent games that I stayed up all night playing, so I have high expectations and the trailers are promising.

I was going to get SOTTR but I haven't finished ROTR yet and there are other games I'm more interested in over the next couple of months so I've decided not to get it.

Grabbed the complete edition thing of Shantae half genie hero. Really enjoyed MOST of it, but feel like they got lazy with level design at the end. The final level involves practically no platforming, just flying with one of her forms, and its full of instant death spikes and lava pits. The after a fairly bland final boss fight, it repeats the same type of section from the first level, which I found tedious then and still did this time too.

Its like they had the first 2 levels being really well designed and fun, the third starts falling into the its "OK" section and 4th, back into good and then "We can't be bothered" for the final section. A shame really as parts of it were really damn good with some nice platforming elements.
