That's how I see it anyway, but if you're having fun diving into the deep end off the bat, go do that instead
I took your advice and started with other "simpler" characters first. I had a blast to tell you the truth. I have a lot of exp. with FPS and MMORPG's so i caught on to the game mechanics fairly fast. I ended up tanking most of the night, because everyone wanted to be fucking Bastion.

I ended up finding a party of folks that had mics. They taught me what they thought I needed to know and we played. At first I disliked Roadhog because of his appearance, but quickly changed my mind after using him. I think that it is amazing how different all the characters are and I have a lot to learn still, but having a blast.

I never seem to be on a balanced team, so I am sort of forced to fill in spots. Then all through the game, people are changing their roles and I have to switch again to fill a different gap. I hope that goes away when I eventually make it into competitive.

So no Genji yet. I have to learn the maps first! I am enjoying the game though!
