Overwatch is a Class Based FPS that pits different Heroes against their enemies reminiscent of a MOBA with various strategies, counters, and lots of teamplay/wombo combo potential. Since my friends don't know what TF2 is I've tried describing it as a FPS with comic book characters, each of whom has vastly different traits and abilities. Some are fast, squishy, but deadly, others are Slow, Tanky, Behemoths and still some more Utility based, creating walls, turrets, healing, stopping damage etc.
There is a LOT to cover but don't be intimidated as 1.) Its Free 2.) There are SEVERAL heroes that are VERY easy to pick up and do well with. The maps, overall, feel good so any FPS game sense still applies and as long as you PTFO you'll do well! For some OW basics click on their homepage HERE or watch this video

I'll be online and available Friday Night and would really LOVE to get a full party or MORE together. We'll cover some basics, talk about the maps, heroes, and best pairings/counters as each hero has their strengths and weaknesses. This will be a very laid back get together as I'm hoping to get more people playing this amazing game. The maps and heroes are all free and any skins/in game aesthetics can also be unlocked by simply playing. See you there!
