CradleAre there gonna be community servers?

Not exactly an answer to your question, but I do not think there is any Blizzard game that has community servers in:
SC:BW, SC2, WC3, WoW, Hearthstone, Diablo 3, or HotS.
As far as they go, they only have "custom game" rooms in some of those games listed and official Blizzard servers in WoW.
Pretty much what I'm saying is that there is a least likely chance due to their past games and how they may not have any experience with this. If they do intend to copy TF2 as a whole, then they should be working on the ability to do so, but nothing has been said about the works of it I believe.

There are Unofficial private servers for WoW, but that's as close as it comes to community servers.

Its shit. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Ignoring everything else wrong with the game the lack of Quake-like DM/movement is enough to make me not want to play.

Not to mention the screen is constant clusterfuck of rainbows and pressing Q gives you aimbot.

The game is so bad in so many levels

Same. It's because you play on low levels. Up 10+ level and your enemies will be more skilled.

to me it looks like a moderatly fun but pretty casual game
among the lack of advanced movement techniques (aside from maybe Lucio's rollerbading wall-to-wall) some skills are really damn annoying and the kills people make with them feel really undeserved
-soldier 76 and mccree ult, the first is simply aimbot which does nothing but aim for you, the damage is the same, fire rate the same, the game just doesn't require you to move the mouse for several seconds; second one is just instakill ater you look at enemies long enough
-hanzo sonic arrow or whatever and widowmaker ult, just a wallhack; i mean, not exactly that overpowered, just... why?
-junkrat's passive, drops grenades near your body on death; how the hell is this supposed to be fair or satisfying to get kills with, i've no idea
-winston's tesla cannon and symmetra's gun automatically latch on enemies at close range, you basically just gotta have them in your FOV
-genji's ult feels really dumb because he has to hold m1 with some enemies around and someone will inevitably die because of huge melee range/arc
-d.va's "be invulnerable to projectiles" and genji's "deflect all projectiles back for a few seconds" makes pyro's airblast look like an incredibly fun mechanic
overall i can see why this game would appeal to a large audience but it is pretty lacking in depth and variety of advanced skills to master imo

I can't say OW is not enjoyable on some level. Running around with all the eye candy and using all the different abilities is fun. OW might be a great game to just kick back with friends and fool around but from what I have seen / experienced so far, I am not going to spend time playing this on a competitive level for 1 reason.

IMO Aiming, speed and movement are the key things you practice and improve with FPS games to get more individual skill over other players. In OW, those main factors are mostly all replaced by some gimmick "ability" for each class. Sure you can learn to use that gimmick better and pass it off as skill but I just don't see it.

fyi

you can pre-order through amazon and save 20% if you have amazon prime. this only applies to the origins and collectors edition. the downside: you have to wait two days free shipping for your physical copy to arrive. the plus side: you pay $48 for the origins copy and $104 for the collectors copy if you're into that.

edit: this supposedly works with free trial prime accounts too and according to the rules page on amazon, may work up to two weeks after release date as well. ymmv.
