Thread: Overwatch AMA

    Overwatch AMA

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/c...t_jeff_kaplan/

    It's pretty long, but lots of great stuff in here, including more detail than we've ever seen on the Titan/Overwatch transition.

    Also:

    I always say that Dinoflask says what I wish I could really say (like that old Key and Peele skit with Obama's translator)
    "Insta-locking Hanzo fucking kill yourself" canon confirmed.

    Yeah this.

    Also, for the curious, he also mentioned he plays comp and hit 2.7k rank. He said he could go higher but didn't have the time for it.

    Pretty nice to know he plays ranked and puts a good hours into the game.

    This is really freaking cool. It puts to rest many of the rumors about Overwatch and how much it took from Titan itself. A very fun read.

    He's opened the flood doors on people thinking rank means knowledge now, and they'll use that against him for balance complaints sadly.

    Always good to know people enjoy what they make though!

    There's going to be some people who are going to be dead serious using that argument but I doubt it'll be that many.

    Either way, from what I read on his AMA, it seems like he's not even directly connected to balancing heroes and is instead more focused on game philosophy, setting timers for the team to do work and directing were the game should/needs to be headed towards, so eeeeeeeeeeh.
