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.

My ideal underdog scenario ain't looking good.

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
