This is interesting, as I, as a person extremely allergic to edginess, actually find her very likable and her edginess toned down and, well, in the lack of a better word, “muted”. Not in the sense that she’s not all over the place with her corruption stuffs, but the whole effect it has on me is, surprisingly positive and endearing if you will:)
I mean, we are talking about a guy who got OW access about a year ago and didn’t play for a month until I decided to proactively learn to play a game that has Reaper in it:) Now I find him hilariously fun, like an overblown linkin park teenager dude, but I had severe (very childish) difficulties of even playing matches he didn’t even actually had to be in, because my mind knew that he is somewhere in the roster, just waiting for me to cringe me to death:)
Galilea, on the other hand, took the whole gimmick to a more “mature” (well, honestly, quotation marks are there for a reason, but you get the notion) level and to me at least, she was very likable and there was zero off putting when it comes to her. I was mostly like “see, that’s the brooding character that “feels right””. Unlike Nolan’s Batman, for example. Or Reaper (though, I am a bit too harsh on Reaper, as he is meant to be “that cringy guy” quite deliberately and if we are to be fair to him, he more fills the shayne and aurox niche than galileas because he is so over the top that he runs full circle and becomes a lovable stuffed bear once you get through the initialization pain:) ).
tl;dr - i find her surprisingly non-edgy and cringe-inducing.
As for the particles, I think, while it doesn’t look so, one of the main sinners is actually oscar mike with upgraded grenade. Now, that’s billions of both 2d and 3d post processing rainbow vomit that burns every cpu/gpu combo to shreds, along with one’s eyes:)
About the topic, I kinda “fell for her” while I was browsing character roster. She seemed very, well, politely designed, not going anywhere weird but still having the decent punch to the design, which was rather refreshing (I know, that’s a weird notion) when one goes through the BB roster:) Add to that that I am generally a “I will take over the world along with this gurl” kinda player rather than the “I AM this dude” kinda player and you get a perfect mix. Although I mostly played Thorn and Oscar Mike (him basically because the game prompts you to and he’s a safe character, so to speak, for beginners), Galilea is my “to go to” character. Though I don’t get much chance to play with her as everyone picks bunch of thorns and marquises with all power of their ssd first-load-first-served disks, that I often do damage control with someone like Ambra, athoguh I am not exactly thrilled:)
But when I manage to squeeze her in, I pick Galilea.
As for the “she’s OP, you have no shame” notion, well, she’s actually UP when I play her:D As I am pretty good at fps games of any variety, it’s way better for the enemy team if I go Galilea, regardless of how OP she might be, than for example Thorn and employ all of my high mouse sensitivity quake heritage:)
So, I never even regarded the notion as I am some kind of a douche if I select Galilea:)
