    Avering! How can you not like the Lucio skin! It's beautiful! I'm certainly not bias when I say that's it's one of the best skins in the game for Lucio.

    Anyway, there's a new Overwatch comic, this one's for Tracer. You can read the English version here, and while your at it I'd recommend reading everything else if you haven't.

    Thoughts anyone?
    One of the mane things I took from the comic is that Widow still has feelings for her husband even though she's brainwashed. I just noticed that about her name, she's called Widowmaker because she made herself a widow. I'm slower then a Mcree during Deadeye.

    Chinese New Year skins sound fun, Roadhog would have some sort of year of the hog skin and Hanzo would have to get something year of the dragon related.

    People are flipping thir shite over Tracer. Don't they have anything better to do?

    Also ,you can see Mcree passed out, with Sombra actually sitting not far away from him. What was she doing there? (There are a few fun fan theories)
    Also, old men with their grandkids. That was adorable.

    Apparently Kaplin was so pleased with my Tracer gameplay that he put the lootboxes in my favor.

    I caved in and got the game in the end. But if Summer games roles around and the old items aren't made available again, Kaplin will have hell to pay.

    As someone with nearly 750 hours in Team Fortress, I think you'll enjoy it. It's far from the same thing but it does sort of fill the cartoony class-based FPS niche and it does a damn good job at it.

    About the summer games thing, I'm in the same boat as you, the only summer exclusive I have is a player icon and I think maybe a spray. Most people including myself believe that Blizzard will let the event items be accessible once a year every time the event takes place, Summer Skins become available at summer, Winter become available in Winter, etc. I don't really see any reason Blizzard wouldn't follow this formula. We gotta have some hope and put some faith in Blizzard.

    I actually got this a week or so ago. Blizzard games tend to keep their 'value' over time. I noticed they had $20 off, so I grabbed the mid-tier version, the Digital special edition basically.

    It's not too bad. I've played a dozen or two rounds with others, mostly vs AI though. I first started with Purple Sniper Lady, but it didn't go so well versus real people, so I switched to the last guy on the list, Mr. Floaty McBallThrower the PseudoMagicMan. With him, I tend to do alright in AI matches at least. I obviously don't get the high kill count, but I can at least heal others, and I often top out the charts in terms of assists.

    I'm...Bad with names, as you might have noticed.

    Oh, one question, What does it mean when your name is orange with an asterisk/star next to it? I presume it means you're doing pretty well?

    This is his name now. Don't bother calling him anything else.
    I'm not entirely sure what you mean, do you mean the little star that appears under someone's name when they pass rank one hundred? That's the only star I can think of, and I don't think I've ever seen my name or anyone else's turn orange.

    I'm recommending you go online. Aside from being fun occasionally, it's a massively different experience from AI fights. Also you can't experience the feeling if teammates who couldn't find their own arses in the dark with a map and a flashlight.
    The arcade modes tend to be fun tho.

    Fair enough!

    And no. I mean like, when the match is being set up, the players select their characters, I see some of us have orange instead of blue names, and there are little * (asterisk/star) type symbols next to them. We're all on the same team in these matches, and it's always (that I can recall anyway) users on the left side, and I think it's usually 2 or 3 players that are like that.

    That would explain why I can't find it, I've been on the PC with Mouse and Keyboard. I would love to figure this out though, maybe it means people that have microphones connected or something like that?

    When you're in a group with other players, they show up exactly as described. The only problem with that is that the names should be green.

    I can't say I know entirely, but I think the combination of being on the objective that long and taunting were the mane reasons, the amp just topped it all off and made the system pick me. I know taunting increases the chance of getting POTG based on some research I've done, so that was a largely contributing factor. I can't say I'm still entirely sure why it decided this was worthy of play of the game though.

    New PTR update!

    I'm really excited to see what'll be done with the new server browser feature, there's so many possibilities and I can't wait to see what the first custom gamemode people will come up with.

    EDIT: I forgot to link the actual dev update where he talks about The Server Browser.
    Here.
    Sorry about that!

    Dinoflask do your thing.

    So apparently the PTR has some hidden menu song in the files, and it's music that played during the first Cinematic Trailer, when they were fighting over Doomfist's gauntlet. The glass covering Doomfist's gauntlet on Numbani is also broken now. So.... Doomfist hype?

    I vote for a new tank. 'Cause it would be tight to punch people into the far distance while having a massive pool of HP. That or defense. A new char in either would make me happy personally.

    I actually am thinking of attack. High mobility, high damage with a short reach. There are already Rein for great melee tank, and Winston for knocking people around, and a single gauntlet is not enough for locking down an area, as the defense heroes' shtick. But to be frank nobody cares about that. Terry Crews is the only important thing.

    I can certainly agree concerning the Terry Crews bit. But I am more interested in a new tank... mainly because the idea of throwing players around with a muscle bound Terry Crews appeals to me...

    I can't wait for Doomfist! Orisa was kind of a strange addition to the team imo.

    I've never cared much for Doomfist story wise so I was really glad when Orisa happened. There's honestly no way he could be more interesting than her anyway.
