    Is Paladins a rip off of Overwatch?

    - It hits me right in the feels whenever I have to face an enemy Nemesis.

    Not completely. Paladins got released first, OW was in development longer.

    They both rip off TF2.

    They are the same game genre but no, contrary to the belief of too many fanboys of Blizzard, Overwatch did not do everything first or original. Whats annoying is the people will say that Ruckus is a D.Va-wannabe when in reality Ruckus already was released before D.Va existed.

    This article is so biased towards Blizzard you can taste it.

    Huh? Overwatch got released first, and most likely began development first.

    But yea, every game in the hero genre technically ripped off TF2, and if you want to go even further... quake.
    ... just like every game in the MOBA genre ripped off DoTa, and every game in the rts genre ripped of dune/command and conquer.. etc

    I do wish that Hirez went with GA2 and not Paladins, they could've avoided all of this "Paladins is copying Overwatch" shenanigans by just saying "uhh, we're copying Global Agenda you losers".

    I called it stpid.
    No matter what planet...
    No matter what galaxy...
    They always look up in wonder.
    Some fall to their knees in worship.
    Others hide behind walls and towers.
    But the thing they do best... is beg for mercy.
    It's just... adorable.

    Abandon hope all ye who reply to me!

    Both have charms to them. But both of them also have tanks that can one-shot you. -.-

    I've moved back to Paladins because I'm sick of no-skill Roadhog being in every single match and one-shotting anything he feels like looking at. Makoa may be similar, but at least he can't press a button and get half of his HP back almost instantly like Roadhog can.

    I'd rather have a game that doesn't go 'Oh let's make the dwarf the turret builder' like a bazillion other games do.

    Paladins started off as GA2

    Overwatch started off as Titan

    Blizzard started Titan before Hirez started GA2, but ultimately both Titan and GA2 were scrapped.

    Lol Roadhog isn't that "OP" - Aside from the bullshit pulls every now and then, I don't have an issue with him.

    Really? People are still talking about this shit? This question has not been definitively answered a thousand times over? Look, nobody owns the class-based FPS. If anyone did, Valve would have a lot of suing to do. Besides, HR owned up to taking influence from Overwatch, so we can at least say they're not doing it shamelessly.
