Is anyone else getting a bug with Lucio? I can't switch his crossfade at all. It keeps giving me the 'not available' sound as if it's on a cooldown.

seeing full body shots, both skins look really nice, soooooo much better than the Tracer and Genji skins last year
the lighting in the menu is very pretty too, good wallpaper fodder

I’ll probably be able to get enough tokens to get both before they’re gone so the question becomes which one do I get first

I bought the tracer skin (what else am I gonna do with these coins), but I never use her skin because 1. Her giant, bright blue hair just screams "Please headshot me!" and 2. I hate that water swooshing sound she makes when she blinks. Genji's was okay, but he has better skins.

Mercy looks like one of those ads you get begging you to play some mobile game.

however, as a toxic Mercy main who only plays to show off my rare skins, I am required to buy it

It looks like both Mercy and Lucio skins don't have any new audio or visual effects. Compared to last year's skins.

New map week is best week. You have the only time that quickplayers (in the new map) are trying to make a good team comp on any consistent level instead of just 'do whatever because lawl qp'

So I'm getting this weird issue in OW where opening the game will eventually cause my monitor to start blinking in and out, going black for a few seconds before returning. It's only on Overwatch. It's a right annoyance and I want to fix it.

But most importantly I did a test match to see if repairing the game's files would do it (it did not), and somehow I won with like.... 6 kills, 1 death, and getting on the board for objective time.

The moral of the story is that even an idiot like me can play this game half-blind.

Also if anyone could give me a solution that would be greeeeeaaaaaat.

Really disappointed they didn't bring last year's Atlantic/Pacific skins back for this season. They're kinda throwing away a tons of potential$$.

Snagged Lucio but need 98 more coins for Mercy so I may just fork over $5.

I just spent $5 and got 100 points. I never spent the 100 points they gave as a gift. Got the Mercy skin. Don't have the time to actually watch OWL. Loving the skin, although it really makes you stand out with it's bright spots, which is bad for Mercy.

I wonder if they'll ever permanently fix the intermittent voice line preview not working on the lootbox screen?

I mean lowest of the low priority but seems crazy it's been here for a aeon.

After keeping track of each one of my last 83 matches I am now certain that I am stuck at the rank i'm in because of terrible teammates, my stats are as Support are way beyond this rank, ugh. I should find a 3 stack.

All the toxic people must be on tonight, because its much worse than normal. Oh well, easy mute and avoid.

Stats aren't always everything though. And if that's 83 games total across all seasons I'd say that's not really that many. Climbing in this game is slow unless you're far, far below where you should be.

What heroes do you play and what rank?

Stats averages i'd say are extremely important. 83 is just this season about to do placements and am dreading it because being a support main is the worst in solo queue.

I fucking killed it in my placements, 7 out of 10 as support, 2 tank and one DPS and got mid silver (up from Bronze last season!!!!) to finish 8-2. My last match had a 2 stack clearly trying to throw to lower their placement with the Mei doing everything she could to stop us from gaining any ground at all... and it fucking worked. Super thrilled about that. Man this game sometimes.

Nice :) I'm hoping to crawl out of this bronze hole (1150) back into silver. I fell into the "one more game/let's try again" trap when I was home sick for a week so...yeah, that didn't go so well.

tfw you get a 4k at the first corner as orisa. then the enemy team just said fuck it and go dps only. my dva was pretty off the whole game. noticed sens is a bit low for her. i'll have to adjust.


also the video might be processing. but its only 720p anyways.

POTG was from here.

Did my placements for the first time in like 7 seasons and, as expected, got placed lower than I've ever been: high gold. But I'm feeling really good about my play. My wins have almost universally been complete rolls, and my losses have all been extremely close. Reinvigorated to play this game competitively and get climbing!

i really don't know where any of the Healthpacks are on Havana. the stairs seems to give me an issue because its higher than usual and theres no box or anything to jump on in certain areas. but then again. i like to move backwards and i haven't really familiarized myself enough to know the layout yet.

I continue to be amazed at the stuff that comes out of the workshop. When it was first announced, I thought "Oh no. It's nice, but we're probably not gonna get too much out of it as a community, it's just for a niche audience that likes playing around with stuff is gonna make some minigames that we play a few times and then drop"

Instead, whole new game modes are being made. If they just give players map editor functions (or even better, Map AND Asset editors), Overwatch will basically never die. We will have new things coming out forever.

That Atlantic Mercy art is so amazing. I am loving the skin. I feel so bad for not buying the Pink one, that's her only skin i am missing. :(

So how exactly do you earn league tokens? I assume you don't have to have the twitch channel of OWL running in background 24/7...
Do you only get tokens when you're watching the battles being advertised in the main game, like the ones happening at 9pm & 11pm EST today?
And exacly how rare is that 100 tokens drop? Because with only 3 tokens per hour... I might as well just pay the damn tokens if the 100 free are extremely rare.

you only get drops during live matches and the 100 drops are one at the end of each match per night (usually 3-4 opportunities)
the 100 token drops aren’t that rare but they’re not particularly common either, I think I’ve gotten it twice or three times but I don’t watch every night
you can leave the stream running at 160p and muted and it will count for drops

basically, if you don’t watch OWL regularly and don’t already have some tokens you’re probably better off just buying them

An all star Winston skin has tons of potential and he could use something different.

A shame itll be dva and rein.

I had no idea that there was an all star team. Wondering where the skins came from.

Go pacific.
