What a waste of plastic.

Now we just wait to see when an Overwatch character makes it to Smash Bros.

Well, Sakurai did just announce a second set of DLC for Smash Ultimate. If an Overwatch character gets in it's likely there, but that depends on whether Nintendo wants to count Activision and Blizzard as one or two companies (cause Crash is much more likely as an Activision character) and weather another Blizzard character would fit better in Smash.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

@20899 (sgamer82 asking how people are finding Role Queue) - variable, I suppose. I've been matched into some very good teams and some downright terrible teams (it feels as though there have been more of the latter, but it's human nature to Accentuate the Negative), and I've had wait times of 15-20 minutes just for low-level Quick Play. But at least the team compositions have been balanced, and the people who play Tank and Support generally want to play Tank and Support instead of feeling forced into it.

And it's forcing me to do something I really should have done ages ago: broaden my character selection a bit. I'm mediocre at best at all three categories (I avoid Competitive Play like the plague, but it's fair to say I'd be low-level Bronze across the board if I bothered), but I've been especially reluctant to play DPS characters until recently, and there's really only been one character in each class as whom I've logged a significant amount of time. Clearly, the time to learn at least two per class - and preferably more, to make it possible to adapt to changing circumstances - is now. (No chance in Hades of me learning the hitscan characters ever, though. My aim is Biblically terrible.)

I suspect that may be related to some of the terrible teams into which I've been matched - there must be a lot of low-level players who are playing characters and/or classes they're not used to playing in a bid to get a free loot box, and the results aren't always pretty. Hopefully that will settle a bit in time.

I have a question. Since the game tells you zilch about story, what's the best way to learn Overwatch's lore? Should I just go trough all videos and comics here and then read all characters' backstories?

Basically, yeah.

The game really needs an in-game story-mode

Overwatch League news!

The Grand Final of 2019 Season Playoff would be:

New York Excelsior vs Vancouver Titans.

It's sad how NYE making it to the Finals is actually a shock now. [lol]

And even then, the vast majority of the story content is backstory. We know next to nothing about what's going on in the present.

Hell, iirc it was only relatively recently that it was more or less confirmed that Bastion was with New Overwatch (or at least, that he and Torbjorn were more than just two guy who made a shaky friendship), and Bastion's been around since the beginning.

I'm into Overwatch very casually, and it's a bit surreal to realize the things I don't know about the backstory are things that no one knows.

[up][up][up] Actually, that's not the Grand Final, that's just the final of the winners' bracket; whoever wins that match then goes on to face the winner of the losers' bracket, which currently includes the the Atlanta Reign, the Hangzhou Spark, the Los Angeles Gladiators, and the San Francisco Shock. The Reign play the Spark and the Gladiators play the Shock this coming Thursday, then the winners of those matches play each other on Saturday, and finally the winner of that match plays whoever loses out of the Titans and the NXYL on Sunday and goes on to face the winner in the Grand Final at the end of September.

My prediction is yet another Titans-Shock final; the only reason the Shock are in the losers' bracket is because of a "Cloud 9" moment at the worst possible time. It made for an awesome upset win for the Reign, but I think even they would admit they got very lucky.
