Blizzard is going full furry
Black cat D.va: nya
Lucio: hold my turntable
Doesn’t Lucio already have an animal costume skin?
Lucio has the frog head that's more of a shoutout to Deadmau 5 than anything.
I just need another oppotunity to get Tuxedo Doomfist again to go with the shiny golden giant fist I'm gonna buy to him. Dude's gonna look like a fuckin G.
Oh god I love that skin.
There's not gonna be something new in terms of gametype, isn't it. I'm predicting competitive... whatever that God-forsaken Mei only mode was.
Though honestly, even just some sort of special PvE would satisfy me. It would spare me from "tryhards" treating Arcade like a 3500+ SR competitive match.
They are really hitting the ball out of the park with these new skins
Too bad I don't play Mercy though...
I see that someone heard "Fairy" instead of "Furry"
RIP that artist
Backpacker Hanzo is daddy.
Glad that Zarya and Lucio are getting winter skins, I wasn’t at all impressed by their Epic winter skins they’ve had.
I got a POTG which essentially resulted from my furious Button Mash. XD
I don't have a video of it, I think, but a recent POTG I had was as Wrecking Ball, in the Ilios Lighthouse (where the point is that one little room). I'm swinging around, doing my Wrecking Ball thing when I just so happen to hit a Reinhardt right at the moment he was starting a charge. I didn't interrupt the charge and it hadn't started yet so it couldn't hurt me, but I did knock him off course in such a way that he charged over the edge and I, if I'm remembering correctly, I hit and took out another person in the process.
Ever since I took up a prior post's advice on treating Wrecking Ball more like a DPS than a tank, I've seen a lot of success with him. To the point I consider him now among my mains with D.va, Zen, and Ana.
I find him a solid counter to Reinhardt, in particular, since that big shield of his doesn't prevent him being knocked back and expose anyone behind him. WB is also surprisingly accurate at long range, imo, albeit with damage drop off. Still it makes him useful for harassing fire, if not properly countering, distance attackers like Pharah or the snipers.

I recently stole a POTG from my Hanzo teammate as Junkrat.
Hanamura, assaulting second point, the entire enemy team were stacked on the loft on the left-hand side of the room when going in from the main entrance (the little platform on the side above the hallway that leads to the outdoor balcony), courtesy of a Symmetra. I got up there as Junk with some bomb-boosting. Our Hanzo proceeded to ult. The dragons hit them all hard, and would have killed them, but I threw down another remote bomb and detonated, getting a quintuple kill (I had the last hits, so I got credit for the kills).
Our Hanzo was annoyed when his ult, which got him those same five elims, didn't get him POTG.
Stealing Hanzos' thunder is the noblest pursuit.
Interesting video on Blizzard, Activision and how the recent changes (shutting down Hot S's e-league) could impact Overwatch. I feel as if it already did, it's said that Activision is focusing on cost-cutting which would expect the lack of new events this year.
So, a funny thing happened.
Today I started with the worst loss streak ever, with seven consecutive defeats. Boy I took it hard, and thought maybe it's time I should quit this game.
Then I started sticking to Winston and I had six consecutive victories. Huh. I guess I'm particularly good with Winston.
Ok this is funny.
I was playing a Mystery Heroes match and i left because the enemy composition was impossible to get through.
So when i search for a new match again, it puts me in the same match but on the winning team and won.
Talk about luck
The holiday reskin of Blizzardworld is officially my favorite map in the game, aesthetically. Love the contrast of the bright, cheery environment with the dark sky but glowing moon. It's gorgeous.
Here, this video came out:
More stop-motion animation. This time it's all Christmas-themed.

I hope Jeff sits in front of a fireplace for twenty hours this year!
Now that I've had a chance to test it out in practice, I'm still not fan of the new Brigitte nerf. I understand why the shield bash is no longer capable to stun through shields, but reducing the damage to a fraction of its original just makes it a weaker flashbang.
I don't know why people think Brigitte is somehow more annoying then Mc Cree.
Brigitte's supposed to be a Support hero, so it doesn't seem that odd to me that a similar power on a Damage hero like McCree would be stronger.
Brigitte always did way less damage the Mccree.
She also doesn't have a gun. Pretty big difference there.
She does have CC, a reposition, a shield that prevents you from doing damage to her till you break it, AOE healing per hit, and her heal is decent when used on someone else.
It's like with Moira. If you get into an extended fight with her, she's likely to win because she'll heal any damage you deal her, as long as she's connecting. But unlike Moira, she has those extra abilities that allow her to disengage via CC or keep you from using your abilities out of fear of the stun, whereas Moira's abilities allowed her to chase or escape with no hard CC.
