I'm a Soldier/D.Va main and use Reinhardt or Zarya if those two are taken (or D.Va is taken and we need another tank). I've done well with Reaper in Quick Play but haven't played him in competitive yet. Ditto Pharah.

I'd love to get good with Roadhog but haven't yet.

Feel I can carry a game the best as Roadhog when I'm in the zone. Ability to make key pick offs and clutch kills is massive as Roadhog. Although I tend to not play tanks too, too often. A good Zarya has a massive impact in the game, but still requires a decent healer to help you out (same with D'va). You just use all the poking as Zarya to time building up your charge fast. Can also clutch save people from D'Va bombs, etc. The amount of shred damage Zarya does is absurd once over 50 energy.

As Tracer the other night, it literally felt like I got 1 shot when a high energy Zarya hit me with a beam while discorded by a Zen - no time to react, 100 to 0

Roadhog is quite strong these days. I think it's partly because of how strong healing is now with Ana and such. His burst damage is enough to pick off a target and is a great way to start a team fight while not giving healers much ult charge. Getting discorded blows though. Even if you hook a tank, your team can sometimes focus them down pretty quickly when they're out of position. It feels like the hitbox for hook is rather generous as well.

I love using Roadhog as a stealth flanker. So cool to get a big hook on the opposition's healer to stop a charge before it begins. He's also quite good vs. a solo Reinhardt if you have any supporting offense (shoot, shoot, hook, shoot, shoot).

Was out sick all week last week and as a result had a bunch time to play Overwatch. Managed to hit Diamond again before dropping back to 2800s (which is where I belong really), still nice to hold the logo! Played a lot of Soldier, Zarya, Zen, Ana, D'Va for the most part.

Never got the Torj skin unfortunately and forgot to go through and buy them all.

Had my best night playing in awhile. 4 straight wins, after first one, ended up hooking up with a group of 5. This game is so much more fun with a group of 6 communicating.

Yeah, hackers, that's the ticket!
