    Stealth is fine in HotS. It's not total invisibility, and you can teach yourself to spot it with experience. Zeratul is a good, balanced character, and Nova is a bit weak.

    So Blizzard knows how to...

    All of them, except for the tiny handful I've actually completed. I wonder if I can remember what those are?

    She seem like a direct Roadhog counter, among others. She can deny him self-healing, as well as tranq darting him when he lands a hook to prevent the follow-up kill.

    I'm mostly just charmed by the...

    This is closer to my play style than that of the excellent Mr. P. Giant. I prefer to spread my turrets out a bit rather than try to lock down a single space. I'll pick a flank to guard and use my...

    Her abilites aren't coherent in the role the fulfill. They just don't relate especially well to each other, or to her fiction. Her primary is totally unlike her secondary in range, use and function,...

    Much earlier in this thread I talked about Symmetra as having a somewhat incoherent kit, and while she's one of my favourite characters I still stand by that. She also, as you point out, clashes with...

    I love that Symmetra is all about careful turret placement, thoughtfully aimed plasma spheres, and hopping about an enemy like a stimmed up bunny. She's like Reinhardt that way, in that she has two...

    This is the thing I get most confused/salty about in the game. I'm playing tank. I'm approaching the objective. I take a quick scan behind me to make sure there's someone actually there. There is. I...

    For some reason I really don't get on with the scripted missions in XCOM, so I cheesed the heck out of that one.

    Delicious, cheesy spoilers: The bugs don't start spawning until you have...

    I had to take an enforced break due to hardware issues, so it's only today I got back to giving Zarya a try with Serenegoose's grenade advice. I was top damage for my team. They just kept dying. It...

    I also have thematic issues with the sword, and for all that I'm comfortable with the abstractions made for the turn-based format, I still think it looks a bit too silly.

    But that damage, though....

    Yeah, he means Flash Bangs. Available from the start, they interrupt Sectoid mind control, and I think they also prevent overwatch fire activating, as well as being a useful debuff. Handy all round. ...

    A Zarya performance like that and you still lost? You just can't carry some teams. Well done, that's a lovely screen. 4.6k damage blocked is very impressive, as is a 22 kill streak. Thanks for the...
