Was talking to someone at work about Overwatch.

I’m not exactly sure what it is, and he couldn’t really answer my questions...

- Is the user interface anything like Warcraft?
- how similar is the game play to Warcraft?
- do they use the same lore as Warcraft, ie are there druids and do they play the same?

Uhhhhh. No to all questions xD there are roles like WoW but thats kinda where the similarities end. Hero PvP FPS game. As of right now i believe there are 28 heroes? Each fall into 3 character rolls. Healer, tank and damage. Some are pure to there roles some are hybrids. Each hero has its own set of abilities. So one hero Genji a damage hero has a dash, a reflect, a frontal spread of knives and a straight throw of 3 knives as main attack. Every hero also has an ultimate ability which charges throughout the match a few times. For genji he pulls out a sword and gets a speed boost for 8 secs. On the surface very simple but as someone who has played it at a higher level at LAN events it can get more complex with team composition and how you play. Anymore questions let me know :)
Why is everyone either overwhelmed or underwhelmed? Why is no one ever just whelmed?

fnn made it sound closer to wow than it is :p its a shooter game basically, regardless of roles played. If you dont like those sort of games you wont like overwatch at all regardless of the Roles part of the game

Ever played Unreal Tournament - Deathmatch? Then that - it's really entertaining and very colourful - no real lore knowledge required but some nice videos to watch. Good working as a team - you can play any role you like often switching based on the way the fights are going.

Unreal Tournament was the most fun the world has never known. I miss it great. Used to play on a Rune server (runes gave extra buffs), had so much fun. This was like 15+ years ago though, the newer version sucked in comparison.

You die, you run back in, you die, run back in. Rinse and repeat. It's fast paced and can be quite fun. There are roles but not like they are in WoW. It's more about buffs etc.

It's a team based First person shooter PvP (3v3 i think?). No single player campaign at all.
The Overwatch short stories videos are realy cool thou.
for example "Honor and Glory"

But sadly no druids.
