thanks!

same here, I didn't have any FPS experience as well, so I started playing Mercy because 1) it seemed easy and 2) nobody else wanted to heal, lol. soon I realized how fun it was, and I have barely touched another hero since.

it's very satisfying when you learn how to position yourself and be able to be in a middle of a fight without dying.  I need to improve my decision making though. I die sometimes trying to revive people in impossible situations, and sometimes when I see an opponent with low HP I try to use my gun instead of healing my team mates which often just ends with me getting a kill and my team mates dying. I tried some competitive matches, but that was way to hard at this point.

moira seems fun too, and Lucio is crazy when you can handle him. I want to try them out sometimes. having a good healer in your team can do all the difference it seems.

btw, I just got play of the game with Mercy. what the fuck did everyone else doing??

I'd recommend Mercy to anyone, because she's a lot of fun and can have a huge impact on a match. Mercy is one of those heroes that's easy to learn but hard to master. Positioning is everything. Mobility is everything. At any given time, on top of healing and damage boosting, you should have three things in mind. Am I behind cover? Are there flankers? What is my next escape (i.e. who am I flying to next)?

I remember trying Mercy when I first got the game. I set her aside because I felt like I was constantly under attack and didn't enjoy being the #1 target. How naive I was. A good Mercy is very slippery. It's all about escape routes and using terrain cleverly.

Play this game so sporadically (cuz it's raptoroblivion'z ps4, not mine) that I haven't racked up any significant hours, but having come into it off of countless FPS' it's always fun to take people to town with McCree and D.Va ~

Mercy and Torbjörn are the only support I can offer, but I'm a nimble assist when it counts.

Finally was able to see it and I'm really glad I saw it in a theater, it was well worth the wait.

Fantastically intense and focused, I really didn't know where it was going in the last 1/2 hour and that's a great thing.

Music was awesome too! Will try to see it again in the theater before it leaves. I have a feeling seeing it on a smaller/home screen will lose some of the intensity, especially with the sound design and music.

Starting this thread for KJ, who has just picked up Overwatch.

I've played it on PC for just over a year (since May 8th 2017). It's essentially the only video game I play.

I had no FPS background aside from Goldeneye, so I started off pretty mechanically weak. But I had other skills that transferred from WoW PvP: healing/tanking roles, teamwork, callouts, positioning, line of sight, game sense, etc.

I ended up being a support main, focusing on Moira and Mercy (over 100 hours on each), and recently Brigitte. Apparently I'm in the 92nd percentile on Moira. Lately I've been refining Mercy and feel like I can carry a lot of games with her.

I know a fair amount about most heroes, though, so if you have Qs I can try to A.

Thanks for sharing. I watched it this time and there were comments. Ben Mankiewicz introduced it and provided closing remarks afterwards. I'm having trouble remembering what he said, though -- partly boilerplate stuff, I think. I believe he talked about how DDL enjoyed PDL and how that led to his collaboration with PTA. I have it recorded, so I can take another look later on and come back with more detail.

When I interviewed Paul Thomas Anderson about Lesley Manville [https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/16/theater/lesley-manville-long-days-journey-into-night.html] I snuck in an unrelated Phantom Thread question I have wondered about since I saw the film: IS ALMA JEWISH? His answer: "A-HA. YES."

Believe it or not, this is the SECOND time it’s played on TCM. It played on TCM at like 3:00 AM in 2013ish during the 31 Days of Oscar. I remember because I watched it to see if there was any kind of introduction or closing  comments. There weren’t.
