That ending was pretty great! Definitely a character that seems fun to play though likely to have a high skill requirement to be effective.

It looks like he'll require a different kind of mechanical skill compared to the norm for Overwatch, too. I wonder if current tank/flex players will adapt to that easily or not. Maybe he'll end up being more of a bridge into the tank class for other folks, like Bri kinda is for supports.

The fanart wing of the OW community is still the best. (At least until the cosplay wing figures out how to approach this lil' guy.)

Looks like that Pink Mercy skin (+ related t-shirts and streamer donations) raised about $12.7 million for the BCRF.

I've been sleeping on OWL expansion team news and rumours.

Confirmed by Blizzard: Atlanta, Guangzhou
Unconfirmed but reported by ESPN: Paris
Strongly rumoured: Toronto :can

Toronto being the first Canadian OWL team means I'll gladly continue to rep the Dragons. :pac

Up to six slots appear to be in play, but that's also just a rumour, they could just expand with three or four.

I wonder if Guangzhou would have the same problems as Shanghai.

I guess the numbers must work out for them to expand like this /and/ go ahead with their "actually play in those cities" plans.

Seems that way, and that's after adding the reported $20M franchise startup fee, too. (See: why teams like Philly are owned by Comcast.) (Just in case you were looking for a raisin to root against Philly. :pac )

That said I think they're doing one more season at the Blizzard Arena in LA before going to the city system. The logistics of that probably totally need the extra time to work out considering the travel distances.

Chances are that'll completely change how the schedules work. It's easy for the Dragons to commute across LA to face a New York team or whatever also currently chilling in LA, but how they're gonna make that workable in a couple years, I dunno. Some teams might just not play each other some years.

Well, you see, heated gaming mo... (oh he said it was in good fun?) i mean, he's just having bantz with people he knows knows its not seri... (oh he half-heartedly apologised for if he offended opponents?) well... uh... at least he wasn't raci... (oh he spammed emotes commonly used in that way by racist trolls?)

He's got a lot of twitch followers though so I declare this a YOUTHFUL MISTAKE and xQc is officially fit to MAKE BLIZZARD MONEY

Looking forward to seeing what she can do on a team that isn't the Dragons, up against an Eastern Division all-star team composed mainly of, uh, NYXL dudes. Welp.

New short!



New map!



It's gonna be control, which is good, 'cause we're doing pretty well on payload/hybrids, I think. Probably already on the PTR so maybe I should actually install that thing sometime. Also on the PTR... Mystery Deathmatch, apparently? I feel like that's something I wished for aloud on stream once. That would definitely get me rolling FFA more often.

I've barely played at all during this event so I guess I should really get in there and grind out a skin or two.

e: from the short,

not what I expected from an ExoSquad reboot but I'll take it

They're no Egg Gang to be sure.

I do enjoy how Blizzard leaned into the Gremlin D.VA persona. Was her backstory always Pacific Rim?

Yeah, pretty much. I think the deal there is the only remaining operational Omnium is somewhere undersea off the coast of Korea where no one can get to it, so they're still under regular threat from the Omnics it keeps spitting out. Plus I guess Korea's conventional military is toast, and Overwatch is disbanded, so all they really got left is this one (?) Meka division staffed at least partially by former civilians recruited from high-skill fields (D.Va herself and esports.)

It's a great goofy setup to tell a kaiju story within the bigger overall story, now I guess with slight sentai trappings what with a colour-coded squad and all that. Blizzard's done a pretty good job developing Overwatch as a platform for almost every comic book thing imaginable.

I joked on Twitter than what we need now is a spinoff game featuring D.Va's squad a la Ace Combat or Zone of the Enders, and maybe if I keep making that joke it'll eventually happen for real.

All-Star Weekend starts in half an hour, or just in time for me to get somewhat near a computer, maybe.

https://overwatchleague.com/en-us/

Kicking off with Lucioball featuring Meko/Ark/Poko (Atlantic) vs. Geguri/Fate/Fissure (Pacific) and then some more skills challenges and Arcade stuff. The actual All-Star game is tomorrow.

This'll be the first appearance of the hamster in OWL play, even if it doesn't really count. First use of Symmetra as well thanks to the Mystery Heroes RNG. :pac

watching today's streamer Fran tear shit up as Ana in Deathmatch, first place finishes, POTGs, great way to feel like an old man

played a few hours yesterday to get the d.va stuff and a few last minute summer event boxes, realized pretty quickly that I have no clue what I'm doing with Wrecking Ball, or the new Symmetra, and I guess Sombra was rebuilt at some point too, yikes
