Anyone here played Overwatch yet?
From what I've been told, it's a TF2 imitator, but a very well done one.

I have. A friend showed it off to moi and I played a couple of rounds. I'll likely grab it next paycheck.
There's certainly a few similarities to TF2, simply because of the style of game it is. I'd say it doesn't blatantly rip anything off though, it's definitely its own thing. It's got a decent handful of what you'd expect from Blizzard in its style.
It was fun, but (much like TF2) it seems it might get repetitive after a good while. I can only imagine stuff will be stirred into the mix as the game goes on, though.

I do agree with Jessie, playing with friends is so fun.

Played the open beta with randoms and loved it. Hoping to get it soon and play with friends. It's got a good mix of different games in there, TF2 included. The variety of heroes should help to keep it varied. Originally, DOTA2 had a single map and one game mode. Doesn't mean it was boring at all!

Played both the PS4 and PC versions during the open beta - PS4 with randoms, PC with friends
Had a blast both times.
It's similar to TF2 on a surface level, but the characters are different and varied enough that calling it a TF2 imitator would be like calling Half-Life a Doom imitator.
There's certainly some of the same base DNA in the design and art style, but it's evolved into something entirely different.

Same as Jeff, played during open beta weekend. Didn't enjoyed it because of the "ultimate" abilities; i could expand on that with balance issues and more minor stuff but i don't want to spoil much, i'll just say they simply killed it for me. Maybe there's ways to avoid some of those, but i don't have that kind of godly skills ;P
Looks like a great game though, just not 60euro great. So i'll wait for a sale, if i'll ever decide to play it again, highly unlikely however.

That Tracer butt though...

It's a lot like a MOBA in that respect. You have to learn each hero to understand how to best use them, and how to counter them. Keeps things interesting IMO.
