Some characters are straight out of TF2, I mean mecha--gimli Torbjorn literately IS the engineer, but other than him, Mercy who is just a flying medic , Pharaoh the soldier with jetpack instead of rocketjumping and Widowmaker the sniper with gadgets and tits the other characters are original.

did some snooping.
gimmick skills from an event in 2013 =/= core game mechanics.
Also, none of those spells reverted you three seconds in the past. Even the blink was more of a sandman skill with movement attached to it than a true blink.
Seriously dude, if THAT'S what you're calling copying then you're impossible to satisfy. Enjoy TF2

I'm honestly on the fence about subs. I hate having to pay one, but i kind of like playing games with a sub just because having to pay does wonders to filter out a lot of the 12 year olds, trolls, gold farmers, and general faggots since the sub makes it so much harder to make a new account when they get banned

Another thing is that Blizz puts most of the subscription money back into the game in the form of server maintenance and stability fixes. GW2 craps out all the time, sometimes even bluescreening my PC in the process. I literally can't remember the last time WoW crashed on me.

There's a certain spell (2 charges) that allows the player to teleport short distances. In combination with Scout's manoeuvrability, he can travel quite a distance without ever touching the ground (kind of like combining double jump & Blink as Corvo/Daud in Dishonored).
In any event, aside from the Recall mechanic (famously used in the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time trilogy) Tracer is basically the equivalent of Scout in TF2 - a lightweight mobility specialist.

omg a class based shooter where one of the classes moves quickly! WOW COPYING TF2! Next you're gonna say battlefield was copying tf2 by having a medic class that heals, right?
C'mon, you're ignoring core mechanics and blaming the dev team for using a bloody archetype of the genre. What, you think class based shooters shouldn't have a point man? There's always gonna be a stringy runny guy. It's how they do the runny guy that's unique. The fact that you're comparing her to prince of persia, a single player fantasy adventure game indicates how unprecedented her revert skill is in the genre of class based shooters.
Just admit it. Overwatch is fuckin' cool.

I never said it wasn't cool and I was only comparing one mechanic to PoP. Her two defining mechanics (Blink & Recall) are the core powers in two existing games (Dishonored & Prince of Persia respectively). As comment #28 points out, each new hero represents one of the archetypes in your average TF2 game.

#1 those games are both single player adventure games. Finding a way to implement traditionally single player mechanics into an fps is unique in and of itself.
#2 the guy was literally just bullshitting how they look similar to tf2 classes. Alone we've found out that tracer is already pretty unique from scout. I'm willing to bet every class has their own unique abilities that make them completely different from the tf2 classes you're casually pigeonholing them into.
You may not have said it isn't cool, but your casual denigration of it as unoriginal is kind of annoying to me. Seriously, how are you supposed to make a class based fps without a sniper class? That doesn't mean it's a cut 'n paste of sniper from tf2, that just means they share a bloody archetype. I'm sure their sniper handles completely differently because they're completely different games. Even if they were trying to make a shiny copy-paste of tf2, being a completely different dev team probably makes it friggen impossible for this to be a copy of tf2.
Are you started to get the gist of my frustration here? Everyone is dismissing this game as a tf2 knock-off just because it's a class based shooter. Jesus christ, all you've seen is a single reveal trailer and some flavour background videos. Reserve your judgment for when the shit is actually released.

Responding to #2, there are actually about 4 characters in overwatch who are arguably ripoffs of TF2. The biggest offenders are Torbjorn who is almost exactly the engineer from TF2 His weapons are a gun that has a pistol mode and shotgun mode, which is effectively the same as the engineer's pistol and shotgun and he has a sentry gun that has the same design as the TF2 sentry gun, right down to how it's upgraded and Mercy Who is basically the Medic with wings and a group revive instead of a targeted one . Also, Widowmaker is somewhat similar to the sniper in that she uses a sniper rifle and sub-machine gun, though she does have some cool gadgets which are different enough. Pharaoh is quite similar to the soldier, a rocket launcher using class with great mid-air mobility the main difference being that the soldier rocket jumps and Pharaoh uses a jetpack
Also, all the game modes that we know about right now are straight out of TF2, right down to the names. I can forgive control points, seeing as how it's a FPS staple, but Payload is copy/pasted right out of TF2.

>buying into hype.
Thinking something looks cool and not immediately dismissing it is not buying into hype. It's being a curious consumer instead of a cynical pedant.
Probably won't buy it, but that doesn't mean I think it's fair to shit on it.
Why does chroma deserve any more love than overwatch?
