  1. It looks like the 5 matches for week 1 can be a mixture of quick play and play against bots so if you want to check it out without playing against real people we can do that. The rest of the weeks say they have to be played in quick play or ranked matches.
     
  2. http://www.ign.com/articles/2017/04/26/overwatchs-heroes-of-the-storm-exclusive-skins-will-be-made-available-to-all

    It sounds like the exclusive Genji and D.Va skins you get from this Heroes of the Storm event will be made available in Overwatch loot boxes at some undetermined point in the future. I can see why they are doing this. Apparently they have received a lot of criticism from the millions of people who play Overwatch on consoles and don't have a gaming PC to play HoTS on.

    Still, as someone who likes both games I liked the idea of having exclusive skins for taking part in this event. The fact that everyone will be able to get them at some point is a little disappointing to me. Also, HoTS is playable on integrated graphics if console Overwatch players wanted the skins badly enough. It's not like you need a high end gaming PC to play it.
     
  3. From those responses you'd think they announced a Hitler skin for her. People are ridiculous.

    Not that this is surprising but it looks like there is going to be an Overwatch Anniversary event. I knew I shouldn't have spent so much of my gold during the Omnics event with the anniversary coming up. I may have to cough up some cash and just buy some loot boxes this time.

    There is also going to be a game of the year edition released alongside the anniversary. Since they don't sell DLC for Overwatch this GOTY edition is just going to be the Origins Edition bundled with 10 loot boxes.
     
  5. I'm more interested in what this new game mode is. Actually I think they should for the anniversary bring back ALL the custom games they made (Lucio Ball, Junkenstein's Revenge, etc) for this event. That'd be pretty sweet IMO.
     
  6. I found this mildly amusing.

    D.Va is now live in Heroes of the Storm. In the couple years I have been playing this game, she will be the first hero I buy on day one. I should point out that I've been stockpiling in game currency for quite a while so this won't actually cost me any real money.

    I realize that this is the Overwatch thread but she is an Overwatch character and there has been enough HoTS talk here that it feels like the best place to post this.
     
  8. So, I see 7 people have read this thread but only 2 of us are actually commenting on it. To everyone else, are you Overwatch players as well or at least interested in the game? If you haven't tried yet, don't forget there's a free weekend to play starting tomorrow at 11am PST.

  9. So this is a thing...


     
  10. This game here is a perfect example as to why I love playing Total Mayhem.

     
  11. So... this is a thing.. in China anyways..



     
  12. I like how he called out the Hanzo clone for being a Hawkeye ripoff and mentioned Guardians of the Galaxy but gave a pass to Black Widow: Natasha because in his words "they know how to make a cute girl."

    For those who don't know, Black Widow is Scarlett Johansson's character in all the Marvel movies. Her actual name in all those movies is Natasha. Naming a character in this game Black Widow: Natasha was easily the most blatant ripoff shown, certainly more than the Hanzo clone he laughed about.
     
  13. I'm a big fan of the Stormtrooper myself.
     
  14. I didn't watch the whole thing so I must have missed that part.
