Probably a driver issue. Roll back to a previous driver or update to a newer one maybe?

 

I got the Huge Rez trophy as Mercy earlier, by literally rezzing our entire team :lol:

 

We were right at the end of the match, and the enemy was escorting the payload. We all die, but I get in and rez everyone, then we wipe them and win. Did I get POTG? Of course not. A D-va who killed like 2 people did :huh:

Reinstalled it on my SSD instead but that didn't help either. Doesn't matter if I put it on Low or Epic, I keep getting the same big FPS drops and stutters. Even during the character select screen it will go from 110 to 20fps for no apparent reason. Really bummed out by this because every other game runs fine on my PC (even Black Ops 3 manages to run perfectly fine on mid to high settings).

At risk of asking a daft question but have you updated your graphics drivers?

I would also suggest posting on the Blizz Technical Support forums!

I'm really enjoying playing with you guys.

 

I bloody love using Mercy, found at last night that I can hook on to Pharah and fly around with here whilst damage boosting her attacks. Death from above. I'm finding the support role very rewarding, but I need to change it up to some of the other support characters a bit I think.

 

I hadn't thought of it until this morning, but I need to remap the change weapon button, I find the D Pad to cumbersome to use in a scrap, I'll do that tonight and see how I get on.

Even as someone who uses D.Va and Zarya its frustrating that the PotG award tends to go to a multi-kill.

Last night was great, especially winning that round where the other team hit 99% on the objective and we ended up winning.

 

It is so satisfying when playing with a team. I love running around healing and buffing. Never has a game made me feel so useful as a support. 

 

Found it amusing that Sprite cheated to get her elusive Play of the Game ;)

 

Was also hilarious watching that guy as Reinhardt basically spawning, walking with sheid up, dying and repeating. Especially when it happened, I revive him and he dies again instantly.

 

Also, Mercy for life yo!

Anyone know a good counter for teams who go all bastion and turret dwarf? 

 

A tank to divert attention then a character who can get height and get in behind. Maybe mixed with Junkrat to lob in some grenade attacks.

 

I have also seen teams counter well with a well positioned sniper such as Widowmaker

My go to is Pharah really, if you know where the turret is, her rockets' range is further than the turrets so if you stand well well back and just fire and hope it works quite well.  This is best on the maps where you're attacking and they've planted a turret for defense purposes.

 

If the turret is on the payload for example it can be a bit trickier, something like Junkrat's grenades or Zarya's distance weapon since you can "lob" both can be good!

The only complaint I have with the game is being made to wait around behind the doors as attackers with nothing to do for what seems like too long before the matches start. Although it is quite fun when a defender comes up to the door to say hello. Tracer's chat is particularly good at making me feel like a caged tiger being wound up.

I managed to fluke joining a game with you Jimmy playing as Lucio mostly I think or... Uh... Who knows!

Kept trying to invite you to group!

 

Sorry for ignoring you, every time one came through I was either mid-game or the invite didn't seem to work properly.

I'll definitely be up for some games tonight if the Xbox crew is around! :)

I went Widowmaker in one of the games we played and could snipe their baston with impunity from my vantage point.

 

Someone more skillful than me could probably use a tracer or reaper to flank then and deal damage from behind

Genji is pretty good against Bastion and Torbjörn. His left click has no damage drop off and they fly true, so it's easy to land hits on them from a distance. Coupled with his Deflect, he makes pretty easy work of them.

 

Combined with his double jump, wall climb and his Swift Strike you can get behind enemy lines quite easily. Just don't pop your ult and expect to wipe them out without having Deflect up :P

We realised that it asks "Y" or "N" for people to join - "Y(es)" is actually "A" in Xbox land lol :)

If you can get close, Road Hog's hook with pull Bastion out of turret mode (I did this the other night to one who'd parked outside the attacking doors ready to mow us down).

 

Reaper can teleport behind them or, if you're close and teleport is on cool down, you can left shift wraith walk through their fire and get behind them. 

 

Winston can jump behind them. 

 

Reinhardt can shield everyone and edge towards them. 

 

Junk rat can harass them with lobbed grenades.

 

Pharah can fly over and nuke from above. 

 

Mei can chuck an ice wall up to block their line of sight and fire.

 

Lucio can wall run past them if you can get the angles right - with speed boost active he's pretty hard to hit. 

 

There are probably more.

Tried this last night and its not really effective as bastion chews through his sheild pretty quickly before chewing through everyone who was stood behind it :(

Hi Guys, 

im thinking of joining in the fun. Enjoyed the open Beta. Will I lose out on anything if I get a secon hand copy from CEX? . I can get £16 for Star Wars Battlefront so looking at a trade in. Cheers

I think you'll be OK, the Origins edition has a code for some skins, but that's all.

That's a real shame because not only is battleborn a genuinely good game in its own right, it's also only similar to overwatch on the surface, in that they're both team based FPS with larger than life characters. The core mechanics are different enough that there is sufficient room for both.
