"Open" beta 5th-9th. Early access beta begins on the 1st. I have a spare key for it if anyone wants.

 

Do you have to do anything like pre order to get into the open beta?  Not that it matters as I can always cancel if I don't like it.

Nope. All a pre-order gets you is entry into the open beta a few days early. Everyone can get in on the 5th, pre-orders get in on the 2nd (not 1st, I was wrong)

It's a lot of fun. Good variation within the role archetypes.

 

I like Bastion and playing defense at present. Want to get good with an offensive character - most likely the gunslinger.

 

Tank/Heals don't really appeal to me yet.

 

edit: Take that back. Reinhardt was fun as hell on escort missions

pre-order beta opens today at ... 4pm PDT (-8GMT) so ... Midnight :lol:

 

edit: complete east coast bias on my part but hate blizzard's timetables all being west coast.

 

Just be glad you're not in Europe.  :lol:  The last Hearthstone expansion went live on the EU servers at 1:30am.

and the eu servers are run on hamster power and held together with selotape and have a tendency of burning down

Actually debating wether to play the beta at all. Had me eye on this game for ages now and i'm definitely getting it, so don't want to beta to take the gloss off. Beta has full access to everything also. I will probably snap tomorrow mind

Think they've disabled Competitive in the latest beta.

Yeah all i'm getting atm is Quick match which is fine for me really as all i really want to do is get in and have fun. Tried some more different heroes last night and i think i'm going to love Widowmaker.

Competitive doesn't appear till you're level 25.

Starting to get my head round this a bit. Need to work out the maps now. When I've been trying to play support it seems like everyone's running all over the place instead of concentrating on an objective. Dunno if that's just cos everyone else is as crap as me.

In my limited experience there are a lot of (bad) people who want to run in and try to be the lonewolf hero and take down the other team single-handed. The tiniest bit of teamwork > any twitch fps skills though so they get repeatedly and hilariously wafflestomped.

 

I suspect they'll get tired of it quickly and either adapt or quit.

 

edit: also it's really new, there's learning for everyone. I meet a lot of people who don't know that you can fire through Reinhardt's shield, so they just cower and follow me while not firing at the guy right in front of us :lol:
