Overwatch is this really cool feature CS:GO has where you can spectate blatant cheaters and then nothing happens

u/KronoakSCG https://s.team/p/ntwh-qdr Sep 27 '21

I remember a few years back I stopped doing it because it got annoying to open it up and see a so and so was banned message every time, should have kept doing it.

u/Crossfiyah Sep 28 '21

You can now do it for Dota too except it's cheaters and assholes.

u/Gesspar Sep 28 '21

Sometimes you get a bit of extra xp... Seriously though, they should limit overwatch to prime, there's no sense in having it in non-prime as almost everyone there cheats. Non-prime overwatch be like: the suspect is definitely cheating, blatant spin bot, but so is everyone in that match...

u/Broadhead349 Sep 28 '21

This is so accurate it’s sad, I tried to play a competitive with my friend who hadn’t bought the game yet and the other team had a blatant cheater and two of our teammates just said “fuck this” and turned on even better hacks and kicked their ass

Are you just talking about killcams? Because that's not really the same feature.

Not just desktop, shows up wrongly on my tablet or my phone in landscape mode, too.
Whatever tool makes these should add a reddit/markdown mode, add two spaces before each newline and it would be fixed.

Psst, it's been long enough I'll tell you now, just don't tell the mod salad_tongs_1, he might ban me for this).

1 - As /u/ChexMashin pointed out, it was an easter egg put in when the subreddit was fixed up a few years back. There may be at least one other if I remember correctly.
2 - It's not really incorrect as the game may not be sold on Steam, but you can add non-steam games to your library and have them show up just the same.

Thanks for being a good sport about it. :)

u/GregTheMad 20 Sep 28 '21

Could you please remove it?

It is a nice joke, but I don't think you should promote a company like Blizzard. You know? Because of the implications.

7

u/salad_tongs_1 https://s.team/p/dcmj-fn Sep 28 '21

I'm not really sure how that obscure hard to see picture of one game in a sea of games is "promoting' anything.
No one is gonna see that and be like "AH YES! Blizzard is a great company and I should buy all their games!"

Hell, the amount of posts we get where people don't even pay attention to stickied threads (like Tuesdays weekly maintenance) shows that the number of people that actually pay attention in here is pretty damn low.

Also: it's a joke, it was put there years ago, and changing it is a huge pain in the ass.

-6

u/GregTheMad 20 Sep 28 '21

Well, there is a thread about it every few weeks, but yeah it's not really advertisement.

It's a good joke, btw, it's just that the game was quite sullied by the company recently.

PS: Kudos for actually replying.

PPS: I mostly browse /r/all or /r/frontpage, so stickies don't show for me at all.

u/pointer_to_null Sep 28 '21

Same here in Hell. Sadly, Comcast has a complete monopoly here and monthly data caps out at 10 MB.

29

u/jimbobicus Sep 28 '21

Well according to google overwatch is 30gb. I think at 10mb/mo it will take you between 1500-3000 months assuming a maximum compression of 50% and the entire amount needs to be downloaded. that's only 125-250 years. If you're there for eternity, that's just a drop in the bucket.

2

u/potatogodofDoom Sep 28 '21

but then you gotta take into consideration you'll barely be able to play since 10mb of data probably wouldn't even be enough for one game

u/FlexibleAsgardian Sep 28 '21

What the fuck did you say

u/SolarisBravo Sep 28 '21 edited Sep 28 '21

It's the mainline Half-Life game right after Episode 2. Besides the name, in what way is it not Half-Life 3?

10

u/turmspitzewerk Sep 28 '21

in all ways but story it is exactly identical to the half life 3 that valve was tinkering in and out with for over a decade. but most people don't care about what valve wants from half life, they wanna see the cliffhanger finished up. we will see a half life 3 in name and story; but for all intents and purposes half life alyx is half life 3; under a different name because a VR title never would have lived up to the expectations regardless of quality.

2

u/assasin1598 Sep 28 '21

Its half life 4 because the word Alyx has 4 letters

-9

u/manberry_sauce where dis? Sep 28 '21 edited Sep 28 '21

We know what Alyx's voice sounds like.

edit: as opposed to Half Life and Half Life 2, where the protagonist never speaks

8

u/SolarisBravo Sep 28 '21

It had been thirteen years - they would have to recast people no matter what they called it. Besides, Ozioma Akagha was convincing enough especially as Alyx's younger self.

1

u/manberry_sauce where dis? Sep 28 '21

I guess I was too subtle for most people. It's not Half Life 3 because we know what the protagonist's voice sounds like, as opposed to Half Life and Half Life 2.

1

u/SolarisBravo Sep 28 '21

Series transition from unvoiced to voiced all the time - take Dishonored 2 or Fallout 4, for example.

Besides, Alyx always had a voice in previous games - if Valve wanted the opportunity to experiment with a voiced protagonist, HLA was the perfect opportunity.

Yeah, my comment was mostly just another "Gordon Freeman is mute" joke.

Outside IT, no idea.

EDIT: And just to be clear, not even my point. My point is that people should take a hold of their lives and careers instead of complaining and doing nothing.
