In competitive games in which team composition matters and you have different playable classes and/or roles (tank, area damage, point damage, various kinds of healing, buffs/debuffs, etc) what kind of character do you like to play?

I guess this would apply to stuff like MMOs, Overwatch, TF2, DOTA, Diablo/PoE, and so on.

    To start off, I'll answer: I almost always go healer or general support. I love healing and buffs/debuffs, it's a great feeling to get your team through a fight or revive others or synchronize your buffs with an ally's abilities or debuffs an enemy's abilities.

    Also, supports generally tend to call stuff out and make decisions, since they're more focused on the team and the overall flow of the game.

    Used to play mages on MMOs, haven't played any in a while though

    @irene ah, nice. I love going glass cannon when I'm not playing with a team. In Diablo 2 I'd go Sorceress with hugely amped damage (chain lightning or meteorb sorc anyone?) and garbage health (one shot or two shots for most enemies) so guess that qualifies as a glass cannon.

    @irene a good tank is worth their weight in gold.

    hehe, I loved Mordecai as well, though played Borderlands 2 with a team so switched to Maya, who has support abilities (Res is frickin OP, gotnus through so many fights)

    @irene ah, Zer0, the most popular pick apparently. I think I got to 50 or so with him, I agree he wasn't pure sniper but that sniper skill tree really did some neat damage. I didn't like the soldier much, too boring.

    Maya was my favourite by far. Our team had a siren, a gunzerker (fun if you like yelling at the screen I suppose), and a soldier. Rather tank-ish I guess but eh.

    Jack of all trades, master of none, mostly lean towards tanking now that I started thinking about it.

    TF2: Pyro
    Warframe: Rhino
    LoL: Master Yii
    WoW: Warrior
    Project Reality: Crew Member - Driver

    I always go for support characters/classes. I'm your Rein, Orisa, Zen and Ana in Overwatch :D I prefer tanks in classic MMOs too (RIP Wildstar). Even in Fallout 76 I'm the guy with some team heal perk cards.

    Always melee tank.

    I always liked the stealthy classes (assassins) or ranged ones (archer/sniper).

    Yeah, I really enjoy FO76.. it's relaxing and really fun to explore the world. I don't get the hate about this game... sure, it has some bugs... but nothing game breaking for me. Maybe it's because I never play alone or I never played Fallout 4 (and everything is new to me). I have about 100h play time and we had a ton of fun.

    I was always a warrior in games.
    Guess that shows that I love close combats even though they can be quite stressful.

    I have tried bowie, mage, healer and tank. Nope. Nothing for me. Warrior is the way to go.

    @thoxx I usually go Ana or Reinhardt too, high five! Love those two, though I also play Moira or Orisa sometimes. And less frequently, D.Va when dives are needed.

    @thoxx I think it's just because everyone wanted something brand new from scratch with ground breaking, never-before seen features/gameplay. Personally, I thing it's just a quick cash in, but it doesn't necessarily mean the game is bad. It's kinda like with Elder Scrolls Online - initially it was nothing special and just a "meh" ... but I've heard it's pretty alright now. Besides, even WoW has bugs.

    I'm always a sniper or combat medic.

    I also have a tendency to play sniper incorrectly

    @irene @ravijojila

    Exactly. I noscope in close range.

    I'm mainly playing CS:GO, but you could say there are roles too.

    I mainly play Support and Team Leader.

    FPS... it varies drastically; I enjoy all ranges, though I'm particularly good with anything that requires precise ballistics.

    WoW: belf warlock. Loved those endless dots and draining my enemies to a dedicated husk. and the fact that, even were they to kill me first, they would still die a slow and painful death. 😊💚

    I got used to be tank because of the high latency I always had playing online

    In any rpg I mostly prefer mages or something closest to it. Ever since Diablo 2 chain lightning fascinated me lol.

    Dirt rally: I roleplay Ford Fiesta

    LoL: Apart from mages, I was a professional troll. Constantly baiting people and laughing back at them.

    Overwaratch: Have most fun with CC heroes, Roadhog, Zarya, Winston (obviously :D). Anyone up for a game mby?

    Tank like, with good close up damage. (Mainly for solo play.)

    I also like long range, but only if the game makes it worth while. (That can include sniper, rocket / grenade launcher, remote explosive charges, tank on top of a hill..)

    But the mayor issue with classes in games with more than one person, is finding someone to work with who has a compatible class.

    Now, if we could have AI's helping out..

    Ranged dps... I like to think I'm a good team player but I'm not great at keeping track of current game state so not much for support or leader role

    Support, preferably some kind of hybrid melee support (like a healing paladin or monk).
  • 0
    League - medium range, preferably mage, with lot of hard cc. My main is morgana.
    Fps games - high damage, short range, i usually play revolver or smg. (Used to main symmetra in overwatch)
