After waiting forever I'm in. I have a basic understanding of the characters but which ones shine in their roles and which aren't worth bothering? (guess I should just play more but it closes sat night and I'm busy most of the day)

Reinhardt and D.Va are the best tanks.

Mercy and Lucio are the best medic/supports.

Everyone else is map dependent. Assassin characters like Tracer and Reaper are great on control maps like Nepal, while defensive characters like Bastion and Widowmaker are great on Payload and Point Capture maps like Route 66.

Everyone else is fairly balanced. There are just a couple mediocre heroes that aren't in a good spot, in my opinion, like Winston and Zenyatta.

I'm sort of enjoying the beta so far, but honestly, I think the gameplay feels a bit shallow. Everything just feels more manic and haphazard than Team Fortress 2, Overwatch seems far less strategic.

Sorta getting that feeling too. I guess I was hoping for more of a straight up TF2 ripoff. But with all the crazy movement abilities and ults going off, it does seem a bit nuts.
