Lucioball is such a terrible game mode, can't believe they brought it back. It screams creative bankruptcy.

Having a lot of fun with lucioball so far, had an epic overtime game that lasted like 10 minutes before we finally won.

No connection or SR issues so far on PS4, but I only started playing 30 minutes ago so maybe they ironed it out?

I think its great and I hope they continue to just build upon all their returning modes.

Im pretty sure the devs have talked about them discussing a second phase of the junkenstein mode past the giant door as a possible addition they were considering. I think that would be awesome.

Mei's snowball offensive will probably include all 4 deathmatch maps along with competitive as well, and I hope Uprising gets a second map. Numbani would be really cool for that.

It's been a real long time since I've wanted every skin. Good job this time Blizzard crew.

That Soldier 76 grillmaster skin is my absolute must-get.

Wooo, got Mercy's Winged Victory skin. Nice to have something to use other than witch, lol

Grillmaster 76 is still my most wanted, hope I can nab that one soon.

Did anyone else get into a state where the game says you're searching for a game, but there is no timer indicating how long it will take or even an option to cancel it? I'm currently endlessly searching for a game and I can't figure out how to stop. Even quitting the game and relaunching battle.net does nothing. When I start the game up again I'm back in the same endless searching state.

edit: It seems to be a competitive queue as well so I can't get invited into a group to break out of it that way. I'm pretty sure I selected the lucio ball comp before I got into this so hopefully this doesn't fuck me.

Well I like Lucio Ball. It probably helps that I don't have Rocket League either.

It's mindless fun for me! Plus its so so so much better than Mei's Snowball Offensive in my opinion.

They brought back the mode where you punch the ball around.

And don't let you play as the guy with the giant golden fist they just released.

I got into a comp game sort of by accident (I canceled out, but I guess it didn't take in time). That was a long match. Then I saw you needed to play 9 more of them to even be placed. Oof.

Made the mistake of buying 48 crates.

Got Mercy and Widow. And 6 non-event legs that I didn't want and gave 0 fucks about. fuckin LAUNCH skins like the tribal Roadhog and Clown Junk skins. Really leaves a bad taste. All I really wanted was more Dad 76.

Why do you guys buy crates now?

Why not wait until the deadline when the event is about to finish and then buy some crates. That's what I do.

... and I still don't get half the stuff I want.

Dude, it's a rushed Rocket League clone made to fit in an FPS that after a year they did nothing to except make another map and change what the ult does.

But hey, at least it isn't Mei's Snowball Offensive.
'

What the fuck? Before glitchers destroyed it that was my favorite seasonal mode.

Always thought it was weird to buy crates at the start of the event.
Although I don't buy them at all. lol

Their PVE modes could be good if they offered a mode with random enemy placements and spawns. It could create some crazy moments and not feel the same so quickly. Just do a Mystery Heroes equivalent for Uprising etc.

I agree with this - things got too predictable too quickly.

Having an 'All Heroes' mode for Uprising was a nice touch though. I hope they make that a standard for future PvE.

There's no point in waiting for crates unless you really only want ONE skin. If you want all of them buying them sooner is no different than buying them later.

Buying the SKIN. with CREDITS, that you should wait on, but the boxes make no difference.

I mean if it means anything i got almost masters on lucio ball because most players dont know how to goalie.

Meanwhile actual comp is still full of smurfs and my favorite guy doomfist killing the whole team.

I mean, it's definitely different than that.

If you play a ton over the next three weeks, you could get pretty much everything you're interested in.

Lucioball is fine for a thing that's around for 2 weeks.

Also the best part about the new Junkrat skin is everyone in Australia will be using it haha.

My problem with Lucio Ball is the fact that the arena is miles too big for 3v3. They should have either gone 5v5, or made the arena smaller.

Lucio ball is fun! hmm.. Maybe I should finally buy Rocket League since I like Lucio ball so much.

It's a fantastic game. I've not played much of it, but it's basically a more polished version of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket Powered Battle Cars, although it doesn't have the more gimmicky arenas, sadly.
