Heroes may drive a lot of buzz but I want to see another game mode. I feel like Capture the Flag is salvageable but I don't think they have the will. I am not sure what other kind of concepts they could try beyond capture the point, king of the king, or escorting the payload.

Several versions of content like Junkenstein's revenge would be nice!

I'm sure they will start another 7 month long ARG that keeps ending in count down timers where nothing happens and people eventually get tired and pissed off soon.

They came out and said they won't be doing that any more due to the feedback from the sombra arg

Good thing he said that. There's so much hype with Terry showing up at the campus and the datamined shattered Numbani payload that there'd be a massive amount of disappointment if the next hero that was announced was some rando.

That's pretty much what they did for Ana.

I'm trying to decide which Twin Peaks character would be best-suited for Overwatch.

I'm leaning toward Deputy Hawk, but I think you could also make a good case for Special Agent Dale Cooper. One of his abilities would involve Diane.

This game needs PvE content, and a party mode where you can do dumb stuff. Could need a map editor for that, though.

Do you mean custom games/servers for dumb stuff? Because they have those

Custom games as in custom maps. Think of minigame party maps from Warcraft 3 and such, where the gameplay itself is stupid, but very fun, and good to disconnect from the shooter gameplay for a while without logging off. Cooperative PvE modes are also good, like killing waves of rabid robots, or a short story mission where the characters are fixed, and you see them interact with each other. Think of the comics made gameplay.

Overwatch is where it is because of very basic premises, being the large Blizzard fanbase and the good aesthetics. However the game itself has barely any content, and you won't have people playing forever if there isn't something more to it.

It shouldn't be hard for the competition to just make a better title. You only need more customization and more modes. If you go as far as to add a map editor, then money will just rain.

Right now Overwatch is a wasted opportunity for the genre, just like Diablo III and StarCraft II before it. They promote staleness and are counter-innovative, in way too many ways.

Winston needs a charge-able alt-fire like Mei has.
