Onlywatch *Internal Grunt of Pain*

As of 9 o’clock PDT today this morning, Overwatch entered its last invite only beta. Did you get in? Because I, like many did not. And I am so, SO salty about it.

I honestly felt like I had a good chance this time around. Mostly because this was a specific North American stress test, still no dice.

However I will say that yesterday at work didn’t help the hype. Because we got this marketing kit for Overwatch, which was full of lanyards, wristbands, posters, signs, stickers, and a beautifully made game and character breakdown book. I mean this thing is so good looking. My entire time working at GameStop I have never seen a higher quality Manager Kit then this one. So I took it! We don’t need it. Everyone is well versed on the game and if I were to leave it, it would be end up on the floor or in the hands of some crazy child showing his mother a game he knows nothing about. Yes, I’m justifying my theft. There’s also this pop open sign with character art of Winston and Widomaker with two empty slots with the words “Coming Soon.”

I mean look at it!

 

But just because I didn’t get into this beta doesn’t mean I’m giving up on this game.  I will continue to look forward to the open beta coming in May. I won’t be one of those salty tweeters who went from being super hopeful to super spiteful in a matter of seconds. Although I am strong enough to say that I was pretty close to doing so last night. Not anymore. I’m fine…

Overwatch Stress Test Weekend

On the eve of the your and my last chance to finally get invited to Blizzard’s “private” beta of Overwatch. We are all crossing our fingers and toes in hopes that tomorrow morning after anywhere from 50-100 refresh clicks of our respective email accounts will finally yield that ever elusive beta invite.

Overwatch Stress Test

Blizzard announced earlier this week that Thursday, yes tomorrow, they will send out one final wave of beta keys. But only for this weekend’s 36 hour stress test. So anyone of us regular Joe’s that aren’t angry have one final chance. That is until the beta is open for all of those who have pre ordered it. But still, even I like many others who have been teased and denied a beta key hold out for one more chance. It’s probably foolish of me to admit it but I’m super excited for tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed!

The stress test will have all 21 heroes available but only a small number of maps to play in. Hey, beggars can’t be choosers. So long as I get a chance to run around as D.Va, Tracer and/or Widow Maker I’m good.

Blizzard  says that they are giving out keys to an even larger amount of people then they have in the past. So our chances are a little higher. Blizzard also says that they may be a little slow with the distribution of the emails so in the honor of Overwatch. Stay vigilant, stay hopeful, and I hope you and I will see one another in Overwatch!
