Junker Queen as an announcer might make it hard to make her a character.

Also, kinda odd for her to say the world ended.

They could hop a plane and go to thriving future-cities.

They could use tech to fix the outback. Bah.

I was so completely happy I came home from a 10 hour drive from Gencon to the Junkertown announcement and the two videos. The video was pretty great as a little set up, I'm a little sad that after so long without a cinematic short we get one using in game models, but I cannot really complain. As a Junkrat main I'm pumped for this new map.

I NEED to know more about the Junker Queen. I really doubt she's just an announcer since so few maps have their own unique announcer, none of that implies shes an announcer for the map as the dialogue is not really generic announcer dialogue. Nor do I think she will be necessarily a playable character, but given that they have a voice actress for her it does support the possibility. Of course I never really ruled out Athena as a possible hero since she is shown in art possibly having an Omnic host, but given her digital omniscient nature that's not really a good I throw her in the pool along with Liao, Hammond, Brigitt as being possible, though likely a long way off.

Dude you're trying way too hard to find something interesting in a literal pile of junk.

Oh, I forgot about Liao and Brigitte.

Yeah, this game could really benefit from a couple of short stories to explain stuff like why the Lunar Colony's empty, give us an idea who the Junker Queen is, etc.

I don't think that necessarily stops her from being a character the same way I don't think it stops Athena from being added. It's not like the players are going to be confused when they use their voice lines for their ults or when they need healing.

In fact, for the Junker Queen's case, I think her being the announcer could be used to get in a couple of cheap laughs when she's in that map.

It's happening because people expect a single offensive ult to obliterate an entire team with absolutely no consequence.

It's very pathetic.

What we needed most is non tank heroes that can point fight against tanks and get through defense matrix.

Here you go, Sonn:



About death match, I main support and tanks, so I'm not touching it. I do think the more game modes the better, though.

Team death match I liked. The FFA sucked for me only because I was trying to figure out my way around the map the first time

I think its pretty clear now that they're seeding her as a future hero (as well as Hammond). Now that we have Doomfist, they've got to start building up other potential heroes so we can be excited for them.

It's hard getting use to the D.Va rework especially when they changed her abilities so that using/canceling boosters is on one button.

How do you feel about them redesigning characters? Do you think it works In terms of keeping game "fresh?"

Over all I'm pretty happy with the skins but kind of bummed at the content in general. We got considerably less this year than last. That is to say, yeah we got a couple more legendary skins vs 8 vs 4, but we got little much else. Small things like lack of RIP stones for the new characters, which really don't take much effort to make, Highlights, I guess we got a couple victory poses but it all amounts to less than year one. This is compounded with getting the exact same event brawl with one new boss and I guess 3 more characters in a new mode of that same event brawl. I dunno, I guess I expected more since they have so much less to do.

That said, Cultist Zen, Jiangshi Mei, Dragon Sym and Viking Torb are all wonderful. Totally 80's Zarya is pretty ok, it would be better at another time of year. Pirate Ana is alright. Van Helsing Mcree's hat needs to be taller, it's pretty bland otherwise. Finally, Dracula Reaper is over all pretty lack luster and his skin last year was superior in all ways, I sort of wish he didn't have his regular mask. I'd much rather have seen other characters that haven't gotten any love last year get skins or at least... stuff. Really odd choices about who got skins this year...

Overall the skins are pretty solid IMO. I love the Zarya skin and I like this much better than the Anniversary one. I would say there is a bit of content lacking, but at the same time the custom games are pretty creative on what players on doing in them. I just want to get more comp points this season for a gold weapon lol

Overwatch Art Book bits

At first I thought this was fan art of Gabe as Mercy but it's apparently the original concept for the hero


I would love if Mercy had a skin more like some of these


Goddamn just when you thought Gabriel Reyes couldn't be more Extra



Junkrat as Vinny from Atlantis



Glad they had the sense not to put McCree ingame with a confederate flag on him


I'd love some Lucio skins like this
