I don't see much broken with the game. My server gets out of sync sometimes and enemies bug out but that's server side not client side.Mars_Orbital said:review seems off from what I'm readingon the official forums. A lot of broken, a lot of cheating and a lot of request for refunds. my score .
I think you are giving far too much credit to both developers here with the idea of the game.IceDark said:"I remember back in the days, when some people defended Paladins and they even said ( based on some pathetic Hi-Rez *proves* ) that actually, Overwatch is the one copying Paladins."Panther2103 said:This argument is moot though, both sides will always defend that their game was announced first or had X feature first.IceDark said:Exactly what I said in my above post.koldmiser said:Since Paladins was announced a full year before Overwatch I'm going to say Blizzard is the copy cat here. Overwatch was originally supposed an MMO called Project Titan which was canceled in 2014 one year after Paladins.
As for original ideas...Let's not forget that Warcraft was ripped right from Warhammer.
Please, educate yourself :
The game was announced on August 5, 2015. Paladins: Champions of the Realm went into open beta on September 16, 2016
Overwatch was unveiled at BlizzCon 2014 in a fully playable state and was in a closed beta from late 2015 through early 2016.
Fully playable state , yes?
Here is a reddit post with a Hirez member linking footage of the game prior to it being called Paladins (it was called AU, and the footage is from 2012).
I mean, in general both games are incredibly similar yes. But both games are heavily copied from other IP's and games that already existed.
I still call that pre-pre-pre Alpha/Prototype "proves" pathetic. I mean, the videos are not even remotely close to what Paladins actually is.
If you however, want to see some real prototype game play which actually looks like the final product, take a look here :
So assuming, based on the May 2014 alpha/prototype videos of Overwatch, we can safely say that Blizz started to work on the game in 2012, with full production in early 2013.
Now , based on the above info, how can someone say that Overwatch copied Paladins ? Even if Blizzard had ( yea right, lol ) access to the "amazing" 2012 Hi Rez prototype videos , there is nothing to compare between the Blizz prototype videos and ... Hi Rez prototype videos.
I remember that Paladins looked pretty different in early day's , but soon changed the dev's "vision" to copy Overwatch.
There are estimates that they made 129 million in revenue in February alone off of fortnite. That's one month. Since then, from what I see, a lot more players are spending a lot more money on skins and Battle Passes. They can't throw around numbers like that and post them publicly on their official website and have it be fake. People will call it out when the tournaments happen if that is the case. It's definitely not fake news.Elminzter said:imo, this is fake news, 100 mio really??? idk epic games always tries to get free publicity..., show us the money!!!!
