Overwatch is running a weekend beta stress test from November 20th

Perhaps the bank should be re-evaluated.

The good news for you here is that if you aren’t already in the Overwatch beta but want to be, you have better odds of getting in for a weekend of testing. The bad news is, well, it’s just a weekend of testing, and it’s all by invitation only. Starting on November 20th and running through November 23rd, the game will be opening to far more people in an effort to test the game’s servers under pressure.

Players who get invited to the test will be able to install and load the game starting on November 19th. All 21 heroes will be available to play, but map selection will be limited. There is also no NDA to worry about during the weekend beta, so you can jump in and say whatever you want about the experience – if, of course, you’re lucky enough to be invited.

Well, I gave it a shot. It’s “ok”. I’m having way more fun in Star Wars Battlefront as a shooter. 

My feeling is that it’s trying to be too simple and yet too much at the same time. The maps didn’t feel very inspired, and I know they are only a few. The capture the point game mode, fun, but I’m hoping they will have more on launch. 

And then the characters. Just a lot that feels for “a lot sake”. It’s not like TF2 where you have some set roles or even some of the more popular FPS where you have assault/medic/support/etc classes. I get that they have that in the meta. I suppose maybe as you play every single class enough the game might get more fun, with better maps.

Still, I was very excited to play and after an hour or more it was back to Star Wars Battlefront.

Ohh shit people are already forgetting about this TF2 Clone. Quickly release some keys for our reused assets from a defunct mmo game!

Good luck to all of you. As well as an advance welcome to those of you lucky enough to join us long term testers.

That’s something I’d like to see. Give this one a beta key!

So all of the streamers moved on after one week, and now Overwatch is rarely on the front page of Twitch. Hey, let’s do an open weekend!

If Madda gets a beta key, Madda will eat Madda’s hat on a live stream.
