    Regardless of how you feel she fits into the lore, she is by far the cutest thing in Overwatch. Fite me.

    Oh yeah, I forgot, this is a ... horse site ;)

    Kidding, of course! I think she is absolutely *adorable* but I mostly meant her mechanics and how she fits into the game competitively. I think she's a great fit lore-wise and I love her design and adorable animations! :3

    D. Va main here. I was excited for Orisa, and I love her ability to manipulate the battlefield. BUt somehow, she still feels weak. Not her gun, just overall

    A buddy gifted me this on PC the other day so I don't have too much at the moment. Did get Reindhart's Uprising skin, though.

    I have a Widowmaker "smurf" that I play so I really want the Legendary skin on that account, but I've got nearly 9k credits on my main just waiting to be spent. Not sure if I'll end up spending on the legendaries this time -- I got Tracer's already, and I have Witch Mercy so ... hmm~

    Lucio's just got a really awesome new Jazzy skin, it kinda reminds me of Big Band.

    More importantly, it changes his music!

    All of the dance emotes are dumb and great but none of the new skins are really doing it for me. Maybe Pharah's but I don't think I'd use it over Anubis anyway.

    The new dance emotes are fantastic, and I also love that Sombra and Orisa finally got their sitting and laughing emotes. As a D.Va main, I feel spoiled with all these legendaries for her over the past few months!

    Also, I just discovered Total Mayhem and it is hilariously stupid. You haven't lived until you've seen a flying Winston dropping shields all over the map.

    Kaplan won't give me my Mei dance, and it's really bothering me. I'm glad I have Pharah's and all, but that's the one thing I want from this event.

    Also, Total Mayhem is nearly unbeatable for Offense. I've only seen it win it once to date. :/

    Blizzard listened to the fans calls for more animated trailers.



    By using a completely different animation style than usual.



    Also, new character or something like that.

    I tried Doomfist on the PTR for a little yesterday, and he is crazy. His abilities give him mad mobility and lead to some really powerful combos. Others have said that he feels like a fighting game character and I'm inclined to agree, his gameplay really has that style to it, performing various ability combinations that can punch foes to the moon and back. His ult is really cool and feels that way too, although it does feel a little cheap to go invulnerable and be able to stalk someone for six seconds and then nuke them from orbit, moving to whichever part of the map you want in the process. I wonder how he'll affect the competitive meta? He's got some strong ways to supplement a good dive with his but I've heard from various sources that he can cause much grief to one too, seeing how he can tear through D.Va and Winston's shield barely effects him. From what I've read it sounds like Zarya pairs really well with him, being able bubble him when Doomfist has trouble in the backlines and set up potential wipes with their ultimates. Who am I kidding though, that's pretty much every flanker. On the topic of flanking, Sombra just completely ruins Doomfist's day, with one hack turning his Rocket Punch into a pimp slap. I can't wait to see what to be some of the pros do with him and how he will change the meta up.

    Edit: Rewrote for clarity and ease of reading.

    Personally, after seeing how he works, suddenly Orisa makes a lot more sense. Like, most of her tool kit would screw and negate most of what Doomfist can do. Though I still think her ult is as random as all get out.

    From what I've seen... Sombra is a direct counter to DoomFist just because he becomes almost useless when hacked.

    It's Christmas, and you know what that means. New lootcrate purchase temptations!

    But I got Ana Owl in an arcade box, so no money from me this year Blizzard! You'll just have to cry into your moneybin full of my WoW subscriptions.

    I have so many Hanzo skins. I cannot aim. If I was a suspicious person, I would say it calculates which character you play the least and then stack all the goodies on that one so you'll buy lootboxes.

    It is a crime that once again Mercy did not get a Christmas angel skin.

    yeah I notived she doesn't have one! I have no idea why they didn't make one for her by now. I think you could be right about the lootboxes. although, I always assumed it was because they want to encourage people to play OTHER characters.

    So far I've only gotten one Christmas legendary. I'm not really expecting to get any more either, since I only got two during the Halloween event. I'm not exactly playing the game sparingly either. Why are you doing this to me, Lord Kaplan?

    Oh well. At least it was one of the new ones, and one of my favorites of the new skins. A shame I don't really play the character though...
