So blizards new FPS game. The game it self looks nice enough kind of tram fortressy, i am glad they are not using existing heroes.

Incidentally, am i the only one who would have liked to watch that cartoon further?

I doubt it will unseat Team Fortress 2 as "the game I play when I'm in the mood for a team based FPS", but I'm sure it will be extremely polished and well balanced.

I wonder what the pay model will be? MOBA-like where you get rotating characters but can buy/rent ones with regularly dropping new ones?

this is an interesting question, and one that I'm actually pretty exited to see the answer too.

It looks fantastic. But I'm suspicious of hard-coded 6v6 gameplay. That's going to turn really toxic really quick.

I wouldn't be surprised. It looks a lot like a MOBA without the lanes. Sort of a League meets TF2 feel. I wonder there is going to be character advancement in game like in League or the crafting/gear thing of TF2 or just a straight shoot em up.

I don't see myself playing this game, when I want a dirty and quick fps to play and have some fun I go tf2. Besides the esthetic of it just doesn't click with me
