Hello, its been a year since this game was realised on steam and a lot of people started playing it because they didit had money for overwatch and it became really popular game. In this article i would like to help you and make you understand a games basics.
Lets start about rules. its a 5vs5 game with 2 gamemodes, Casual and Competetive. Casual it self goes into 2 gamemodes. Siege where you have to capture the middle point and then escort the tank to the enemy base. second Casual gamemode is just capture the mid and 10 minute timer. Competetive is for more experienced players. you need to be at least 15 level and own 12 champions. when you start playing Ranked games you will start as a Qualifying player and need to play 15 games to get Rank. There are 7 ranks Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master, Grandmaster, and each of them conside of 5 stages. you can rank up by winning Competetive games.
Now lets talk about champions. There are 4 different classes
1- Front Line
Front line is a one of the most important classes in the game, you have the most health and have some kind of shield. Your main role is to stay on mid as long as possible. but because of less fraging potential its the least used class in casual gamemodes, but in competetive there are usualy 2 front lines in each team.
One of the best Front Line Champions to start with are Makoa and Torvald
Damage class is one of the most used class beacuse lots of people like to play aggresive. your main role is to kill Front Line enemys and back up theit Front Lines.

Support is also less used class because of a defensive playstile. your main role is to stay close with a Front Line player and heal him as much as you can so you can capture Mid Point
