For me personally playing with people on Discord VOIP is the only fun way to play, it's so much more enjoyable having more than 2 eyes observing the battlefield and calling out enemy positions.

We can make a clan/guild when they add that to the game. I'm Not aware of the possibility of creating your own general chat channel like you can on the Starcraft engine(SC2/heroes of the storm).

But then again, I may be ill informed!

Some people have dropped their battle tags in the thread, so i just mass added them all yesterday through friend requests. I haven't seen clans per se, but just having friends available to play with is really fun. Unfortunately I can only play to about 9:30 EDT every night through week because of my job and family time, so I really wish I was on longer to play with more people.

Now Widowmaker is great, don't get me wrong, especially for taking out Bastion and Torbjörn, but on maps like holding a choke point she is nothing but a distraction.

Yeah, but the game can easily be ruined already just by that one leaver.

Even if they're replaced immediately, it still may take 20-30 seconds for the player to load in and choose a hero, and then another 20-30 seconds to go from the spawn to where the action is, particularly if the new player is on defense on the first point of a match.

That minute of 5v6, which again is the best case with a leaver, is easily enough to disrupt any potential defense of the first point. And a loss that quickly can very easily steamroll into a completely hopeless game for the defense, all because someone left.

You don't get a leaver penalty for one game, you get it for having a high percentage of left games over your last 20. To remove the penalty, you need to improve your percentage by completing more games. Leaving hurts the experience of all 11 of the players in the game you left, as well as anyone who backfills for you. The penalty is actually lighter than I would make it if it were up to me, and you get zero sympathy.

I was not aware that Overwatch did this, I think players should receive some form of discipline for leaving to many games just because it looks like their team is going to lose and they don't want that on their stats.
OW tracks games won and lost so why not keep track of games left during the finale 2 minutes of the game and make it part of your stats or if you leave a game while your team is behind it counts against you as a loss.

Leaving games early just to keep you stats intact really makes me hot. The games are so quick that even if you're playing like crap, the experience will be over soon enough. This isn't like Battlefield where you would suffer through 30 to 45 minutes of grief.

I realized that there is a form of penalty when I started to see a warning that I keep leaving games early (due to RL reasons). Here is a detailed post about the leaver penalty http://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20745234477#post-6

Too many one man armies most of the time I play. Find myself on a team that's half Junkrat or Roadho and people whining about not having "Play of the Game"...

I'll get a list together of the given battletags(or usernames for the console guys) and consolidate them tonight after work and go from there.

I got a 4 day weekend starting so I'm game to play with whoever and I'll send out invs to those on here

How often do people here use in the in-game voice chat? Or do you end up using something like Ventrilo, Team Speak, Mumble, or Skype?
