In the wonderful world of Overwatch, there comes a time when two people who enjoy using the same character find themselves on the same team. What happens then? Who should play as that character? How do console peasants like myself communicate with each other to ensure a mutually-acceptable resolution?
Having come across this dilemma a few times of late, which is odd given the lack of people willing to play a healer in the game, I had to make sure a backup plan was in place. I needed to learn a second character to make sure I could hold my own and contribute to the team in other ways.
So I picked the robotic monk Zenyatta as he is a blend of support and offense, using orbs to buff and debuff allies and enemies from a distance. It’s proved an enjoyable diversion, with the positional sense I’ve picked up playing Mercy translating into where and when to place the status orbs for maximum effect. As is the case with so much of Overwatch it’s a really enjoyable experience and I feel I have a second string to my bow.
What’s next? Maybe a defensive character, Torbjorn appeals as I like the strategy behind turret placement for maximum effect and to surprise the opposition. We shall see. Either way, if you see me online be sure to say hello and I look forward to being your support!
