Huh she really is a wizard.
Shoot Sombra's what?
Those purple lines she shoots out in her hacking skill.
No, D.Va can't block those.
Everyone can shoot sombra before she hacks tho, that's not unique to D.Va
Huh misread that statement then.
No, D.Va can block those. Here's the OWL Twitch channel's video of Friday's match between the Chengdu Hunters and the Philadelphia Fusion. Watch the kill feed at 15:11; Elsa as D.Va uses Defense Matrix to counter a Hack from Eqo as Sombra. The commentators even remark on the odd graphic it puts in the kill feed.

I play Sombra most of all, and that's one of the several reasons I find D. V particularly annoying.
That said, you shouldn't be gearing up to hack people from the front regardless.
So is there any new kill quote in PTR? Mostly concerning Sigma and other heroes
Sigma cosmetics are available in PTR for anyone interested
So is today Sigma's and Role Queue's release? My Blizzard client was doing the background download thing last week. That's usually the sign it's imminent, but I don't follow the actual news on the matter.
If so I'll likely be getting on to try them after I get home from work today.

Sigma's now available, yes. Role Queue is apparently available in Competitive Mode only (they're doing a special shortened beta season for the next three weeks); I think I read that it will move across to Quick Play for the next patch in early September.
For the curious, the achievements for which one can get the Pixel and Cute sprays for Sigma are gathering 350 in shields with a single use of Kinetic Grasp (probably involves timing it with an enemy Ultimate) and delivering three killing blows with a single Gravitic Flux.

Role Queu is available in QP. It's just bugged
Role Queue isn't in QP, but forced 2-2-2 is. It's working by first picked first served right now.
According to blizzard that's a bug. You are not supposed to queue like that.
Otherwise it's basically a race to who gets DPS (And Sigma) first
Which I assume is why Arcade is No Limits this week
Hm. I just spent an evening playing Quick Play with my usual groupmates, and we had several matches where one or both teams had three DPS characters, or occasionally three Tanks. It didn't grey out the categories in which two characters had already been selected or anything. By and large, we did mostly end up with 2/2/2 parties on both sides, but more by choice than anything else. Perhaps Blizzard will be releasing a bugfix patch in the next few days to sort this out.
Unsurprisingly, nearly every match featured a Sigma on both teams, which meant I spent most of the evening playing Support, and more precisely Mercy, since, as I've mentioned in this thread before, one of my usual groupmates is a D.Va main (the other is happy playing whatever the situation calls for - he's nominally a Wrecking Ball main but also plays Orisa, Symmetra, Sombra, Moira, and Brigitte). Which did lead to a few firsts for me as Mercy - getting more eliminations than deaths in a game, getting a Shutdown highlight (for shutting down a Configuration: Tank, no less), and spending time on fire. Minor achievements at best, of course, but I was still happy to finally manage them.

Looks like we have an OWL leak◊

An official Overwatch themed Nintendo Switch case was posted on Amazon and then quickly taken down.
Posted this on the Ensemble Darkhorse cleanup but posting in here just in case
The Ensemble Dark Horse entry in the YMMV page is a problem
So the trend here is that any named character is an authomatic Ensemble Dark Horse. The problem here is that couple of them were Promoted to Playable or are often seen in the game itself (Like Bob) so i don't think they qualify for the trope.
On other case like Lynx, Mauga or Balderich while they aren't playable characters, the stories that do feature them have them in an important role and AFAIK, Ensemble Dark Horse is only for tertiary or minor characters. If a comic or short story features you as an important character, do you still qualify for the trope?
Overwatch for Switch confirmed
I'm surprised they didn't make some Nintendo themed exclusive skins, or at least didn't show them off.

Bowser Roadhog costume when.
And Blizzard makes a shit-ton of more money.

How're people taking the implementation of Role Queue? Seems fine enough to me. At least I haven't felt any real problem with it in the few games I played yesterday.
Overwatch Switch physical will be cart-less.

How well does it match the trope?
