What do ya mean by custom guns?
There's footage from the last update video of Sombra and 75 using different gun models. Every 3-4 months is far too slow for the type of game Overwatch is and where it is in its life cycle.

Honestly I love all of them featured here, Junkrat already has his... and all the other Characters have so much potential, but Carnivale is in late January to early February given that totally overlaps with Lunar Newyear which will surely be reoccurring given it's reach and nature... it's slightly problematic. Man, I really want a sweet half submerged but like in a futuristic way Venetian map.

Cant help but wonder who the red haired Talon member in the "Joker" makeup is at the end. Also I love Maximilen's facial designs, gave him real character... hope we see more of him.

And the models aren't even that high quality anyway.

Paladins has released like 12 heroes since release, and it released after Overwatch. Just recognize the obvious truth: Blizzard doesn't care.

It's a shame because I think Hi-rez is a trash can of a company.

Next hero will probably be out November 11th

So if it's true and they keep up with the current schedule, we'll have three heroes every year with releases on March, July, and November.

Not if doomfist is any indication, I can't believe he's not out yet after over 3 weeks on the PTR and now he's being released on the 27th rather than a Tuesday. Given the trend expect them to be announced then be on the ptr for 4 weeks and be released a random day a couple days later. So just in time for Christmas.

There are also the other changes that have been on PTR as well. Roadhog getting buffed, Reins hammer swings being fixed and a few other changes. Not to mention Doomfist had a good amount of bugs as well. Can easily guarantee that a new hero will be announced at Blizzcon, also I think patches aren't always based on server maintenance. Seasons have started a Wednesday and even Sombra(i think) was released on a Wednesday.

Ha, man, all that time on the PTR and somehow Doomfist's launch destroyed B.net.

I don't want to double post but y'all don't care about Overwatch releasing a new hero weeks ago.

On one hand it sucks that Summer Games is a week late, on the other I think many of the slated changes to lootboxes go above my expectations. So we are getting new skins for return events thank god, the old skins on the other hands are discounted IE a legendary from 3000 to 1000 during this time, thats going above and beyond what I expected. Also hearing a massively reduced duplicate rate for these lootboxes is really exciting, I suppose with there basically being twice as much filler loot for the events they needed to do this, it's still pretty nice and respectable. Can't wait for the new Junkrat skin even though I'm not much of a sports guy, I'm guessing Tennis will be his jam.

I'm a little sad that theres no NEW brawl, but I found Lucioball to be pretty fun last year, the changes to it seem positive and the introduction of a competitive mode is also interesting. Makes me really curious what the other events are going to shake out like, it will be a massive downer though if we just get the same brawls for the events though, that will be less and less fresh every year.

Im ok with it being a week late, its still lasting 3 weeks. I am really looking forward to still being able to get those old skins, I missed out on those and I plan on grinding for a lot of em.
The changes to Lucio ball is a plus and even the competitive is a cool idea and cant wait to check it out. They surprised me as well with the discounted credit skins so that is great and I hope they do this for future ones.

Agreed, I fully expected them to either not drop them or reduce them to 2000. I'm not sure how it will play out though the community is going to have a "BUT MAH EXCLUSIVELY!!!" Tantrum as it usually does.

Yea I think thats just annoying. Its just a skin its not like some crazy achieve they are just handing out. Im just glad they arent adding any more tracer skins lol. I also think this got pushed back to add the changes in for other heroes as well so Im ok with it coming a week later

Bought like $60 worth of boxes, got all the skins I wanted, played for about 40 min, then logged out after realizing Pharah's mere existence is why I don't really play OW much anymore.

Too bad cause most of those skins are great.

Most of the time I end up playing with my friend whos very good with soldier. Each game pharah will switch off on the other team because he just focuses her down all the time.
I still agree tho that Pharmercy is pure cancer

She's still a giant pain in the ass to deal with and even though I consider myself good at Widow and Soldier I still hate going against her.

She should have never been added into the game to begin with and with every new hero the list of people she counters grows bigger and the list of who counters her gets shorter. I can only imagine the balance problems she creates for the team and I'm 100% certain the entire reason Soldier doesn't get heavy nerfs is because she'd run rampant in every match.

And yea let's not even fucking discuss Pharmercy. I know two people who don't even play on console anymore because of it.

It's a shame because I liked to play Pharah before but now it kinda sucks.

Think adding a few more aerial heroes and new folks that hard-counter aerial folks would help?
