Well I guess it's time for me to start this game again lol.

Also haven't been caught up on the updates but did the game play get a lot faster? The main reason I stopped playing is cause it was slow af moving around.

The monolith update compressed the map(at least to me) so engagements are faster to get into. They removed the run/walk mechanic as well, so everyone is quicker. Things have sped up.

Be still my beating heart!

EDIT: Seriously, though. Is this game any good? Bear in mind I've never played a MOBA before (I've always thought the community was too toxic to bother with).

Yeah, Dva x Gal Gadot or something...

The game is decent but the cast is bland, boring, unispired, just an accumulation of cliche...

Wow didnt expect that but its nice. Just speaking from ignorance, is she based in any real person? Just asking because of the song.

Anyway the less dudebro heroes the games has the better, because from my little knowledge of this game it has a generic dudebro design aesthetic.

The way I once described the game's hero set to charlequin was that it's like they took all the most generic game characters from 1997-2006 Western games and rendered them in a loving, incredibly detailed 2017 fashion.

That said, they've been expanding a bit lately.

Here's the full list: https://www.epicgames.com/paragon/en-US/heroes

Clicked a few character highlight videos and boy they are pretty obviously chasing the Overwatch dream so hard.

A lot of these are obvious uninspired attempts to mirror characters from OW.

Each character is an obvious uninspired attempt to mirror characters from OW.
Now are they more or less inspired than when Overwatch was cribbing from not only designs but actual, completely prototypical MOBA hero abilities? Tell me more about all these creature characters in Overwatch.

Both games were in development at the same time and Paragon actually came out a few months prior to Overwatch. Overwatch also didn't invent K-Pop and fanservice as far as I know.

OMG! They added another melee fighter. I'm so shocked!

She looks cool, but why not make her a ranged character?
Next ranged hero is in April, then more and more after that. Epic actually apologised for the amount of melee heroes in a row, they mentioned the development pipeline as the reason. I have no idea what that means.

I had pretty much written this game off after being under the same impression from the very little I knew of it, so I was quite surprised by this. I suppose I'll be looking into it a bit more.

It's not cohesive design, seems out of place.

You could do waifu better, Epic. Was kpop really necessary? Subtlety is key.

Basically, to launch heroes every three weeks, they started them 6-9 months ago, and can't change the order of heroes already X% done without missing their schedule.

This also happened with Heroes of the Storm recently and six Warcraft Assassins in a row.

Overwatch is a game changer, expect to see more waifu in western games, lol
Paragon has gone full waifu for his last characters... and they aren't even that original...



Note how 4 (here, 5th is Shinbi just announced) on the 7 last characters are smoking hot girls...

And how they are all Melee characters...

So you got the vampire in red latex yes she's a bad Bloodrayne rip off
You got Bellica, Lara Croft in a mass effect armor
The blonde angel with a demon side
The killer frost smoking hot ice woman
and now the kpop singer...

Not saying they invented anything considering a lot of their designs are definitely inspired from other designs as well. I'm saying Overwatch gained a more universal appeal and resonated with players much more, and now Paragon, while being in development at the same time, is CURRENTLY definitely chasing the Overwatch dream.
