Hanzos looks fine. Everything else is trash.

I like the Dune Buggie theme behind bastion so I like his, Zarya...like wtf thats not "awesome" like they were hinting. I only equipped that because Im sick of the other ones. Hanzos is good. Genji is the green ranger and its ok nothing special. Tracer and Pharah I can definitely do without, they look like someone just barfed on the screen. Mei works I guess, I have no issues with that one. Dva eh nothing special.Soldier Im still not 100% on, the legs just look a bit off. Lucio seems fine as well but like others have said theres really no "Theme" behind these.
Im wondering if people are shitting on the skins on the official forums

Hanzos has grown on me, the more I've looked at it. It's probably one of the best of the bunch.

I'd still say I only "like" Hanzos, 76, and Syms. The rest are utter trash, to varying degrees.

I really don't understand what they were aiming for, it's crazy tbh. Every other event had a very specific theme and the skins matched accordingly, these are just all over the place.

I feel like a crazy person because this event is one where I happen to like most of the skins: I totally want the Soldier, Zarya, Symmetra, Genji and Hanzo skins.

You're into the neo-80s style.

I like the D.Va skin. Tracer, the robot, Hanzo (Or his brother? The green one with the V.) and Mei (?) are passable.

Zarya should get her HotS exclusive skin.

It took me awhile to actually check stuff out because I was immediately sucked into gaming with friends. So far my lootboxes, which are numbered around 8 or so are as follows: The first lootbox was Zenyatta saying "So Disappointing" which forshadowed what came next, 5 lootboxes with the terrible just gold recoloured face icons, a card spray for widow followed by a gold recoloured icon. Because I didn't have a chance to check the gallery til just now and I didnt really get anything I decided to head here.

So this event is sort of all over the place, all four of the ones they showcased on twitter were between Meh and Ugh. However there's a few I actually dig now that it's been released. Rated from best to worst:

Mei, Genji, Hanzo, D.va, Symmetra, Tracer, Lucio, Soldier: 76, Bastion, Pharah, Zarya.

The best dance is Reaper by far. The worst is Torb.

Surprised we didn't get any highlight or victory things.

I love the new brawl mode and the new maps, I kind of resent every time I get Antarctica as it overstayed it's welcome months ago. My favorite being Black Forest.

All and all this is a weird event... I was kind of expecting the Anniversary to be... big. Instead it's the most lack luster event yet. We got some over due maps for 3v3 and 1v1 and not really a new brawl. Some emotes that are not in anyway surprising. Skins without any cohesive theme that don't really continue or expand on any pre existing themes ('cept maybe D'va and kinda Pharah.) It's all just sort of a letdown. No comic, no animated shorts, nothing building on or even tying to the world itself or the lore... Just... stuff that likely should have always been in the game, even having the Sombra sit is just adding a thing that should have always been there... with one grand fantastic exception.

The Reaper shrug.

I don't get a retro 80's aesthetic from any of them, aside from the fact that Genji kinda resembles some 80's Kamen Riders.

I'm getting an 80s aesthetic from Tracer, Genji, Hanzo, Soldier, and Zarya.

Jazz is my second favorite genre and even I'd probably get annoyed by that sound when you switch into speed after a while.

Hey guys,

How do I download Overwatch? Basically I have never purchased it, but wanted to download the files in preparation for the Free Weekend. On their official website it says choose the Overwatch icon on Battle.net app and from drop down menu select the region and choose the download. Except when I open the app, there is no dropdown menu Every other game has it, even SC2, which I also never purchased.

Thanks in advance

After killing 5 people with Reaper's Death Blossom ultimate and then killing 4 people again with it in the exact same match... I'm considering playing him a hell of a lot more.

So as bad as I am at Comp I still wanted to play a bit and try to get some more points for a weapon. What really is getting under my skin is, why do people play competitive but don't talk? I always felt that if you are doing ranked you should communicate to improve chances to win. Had some decent games and some horrible ones. One game the opposing team captured the first point in about a minute and then steamrolled onto the next in about 2. Then to add to it when a soldier doesn't realize he needs to take out the Pharah...I am not looking forward to the free weekend.
On a positive note Im doing much better with Torb and having a blast with him especially when people tell me to not play him.

Aw, that sucks. Thanks for the answer.

Another question is, when does Blizz usually do sales? I only know Christmas sales. For whatever reason I am very interested in the game now, but money is wee bit of an issue atm.

Rarely, they have the GOTY edition 20 bucks off currently, but they don't always discount games or expansions on the anniversary. Christmas you are more likely to see a discount as well, they did one for the collectors ed last winter.
