Apparently Blizzard is considering rotating characters out of use or outright banning them. Why do I get the feeling Brigitte is actually going to disappear?

Removing Widowmaker from the game would be the one thing that might me want to return to it. C'mon Blizz, nip the snip !

[up][up][up] Can we get some official statement on that? If so, Blizzard must be out of their minds.

I'm too tired to find the original Q&A, but here's the article quoting it: Link

Their argument is that, while they dont intend to stop making characters, too many characters will make the game unmanageable.

Then stop making charaters at some point and focus on balancing.

I can see what Blizzard is thinking. They want to do something similar to Rainbow 6 Siege or League where the players ban a champion or operator so they won't be used but I am not sure how well that system would work.

And League has the issue of their being so many characters that balance is impossible and newbies are in for a bad time if they try to get into the game now. Not exactly a example to be following.

Blizzard is struggling with just 26+ heroes, I think at some point we need to stop.

I approve, because I hold the opinion that some characters just have unbalanceable kits and can't be reworked without gutting the entire concept of the character. For example Roadhog just doesn't work, he is either a 600 HP mid-range-Sniper or ult-feeding pea shooter.

Honestly, I feel like Roadhog being labeled as a "Tank" doesn't really work when he can't actually tank at all, given that damaging other characters feeds ults and he's got no shield or even armor to actually avoid doing that.

He's probably more like Wrecking Ball in that he's better utilized as a beefy DPS.

Plus, remember how in Eragon everyone cries "a single tear"? Yeah, just try that with One Piece and see if it works

Baptiste is pretty interesting to play, albeit a bit unusual for me as his mobility option is a bit hard to get used too.

A new round of changes for the PTR incoming

There were also a few other changes that came with Baptiste that i think went unnoticed here

So apparently typing Winnie the Pooh in the chat will get you banned. China’s “glorious” leader is a real sensitive guy.

Here is all the changes in teh PTR build

This is easily the biggest balance patch we had in a while. They really want to murder GOATS.

Those changes should impact GOATS severely, though I feel for myself and the other lower rankers. Junkrat is already a pain and I feel he needs to go back to one mine.

I hope that Mercy moving while Resurrecting isn't a bug and is a feature. Still holding on to Mass Rez coming back in some shape or form.

An Overwatch League News!

Oh. My. God. Is this for real?

Shanghai Dragons actually defeated Chengdu Hunters, making it the former's very first win ever! SD finally got out of its losing streak, aka THE single biggest loss streak in the history of any sports team ever.

It took forever, but good for Shanghai Dragons!

EDIT: Oh wait, nevermind it already got its first victory against Boston Uprising.

Still, awesome nonetheless! It seems that Shanghai is on its way to lose its underdog title!

I’m like a page late, but nonbinary people generally default to the pronouns “they/them”, not “he/his”. Both Bloodhound and Lynx 17 (Overwatch’s nonbinary omnic) use they/them pronouns.

Also, if they do drop characters, I’m definitely never coming back to the game. As it is, I’m just here for the lore now.

Random question.

Who here watches Rapida's Overwatch Moments? Does anyone think the channel warrants a page of its own?

A) I do, B) I'm not sure but would lean toward no.

There Is No Such Thing as Notability. If it has its own tropes, it can have a page.

Notability isn't the problem here. I'm just not sure there's much to write about aside from a 20 page long entry under good bad bugs, crowning moment of funny and awesome.

Crowning Moments are not tropes.

If you can't think of actual tropes, then the answer is "No, it doesn't deserve a page"
