If one removes that fist will you enter a deceased state?

That action would result in a tremendous quantity of physical discomfort.

If I was new to this forum, I would probably believe that Drusus and Hammerbrew are actually the same person.

There are some large difference between them.

They're both cool, though. Would have a beer with.

They're not?

There's a lot of Sombra decoding stuff going on. It's pretty neat as far as Blizzard stuff goes:

A profile of sorts on Ana and what is probably Sombra's icon:

The countdown on the original thread went down a couple of hours ago. Thread vanished, but then we got new stuff.

Also apparently Sombra "hacked" some twitter accounts of people.

This is quite a lot of effort to put into teasing a character.

I love the extra mile. I just found out there were bits and pieces of code that linked to Sombra in the Summer Games trailer.


Co-op campaign mode confirmed~

Now I want to see Dale Cooper as a playable Overwatch character.

So apparently Jeff Kaplan said that they're going to "leave the door open" in regards to eventually "retiring" some old characters as they add more and more new characters to the game.

What the actual fuck.

That sounds dumb. Will they at least keep a 'classic' mode where all characters are available?

I don't know. Here's the original statement:

Quote:
Jeff Kaplan revealed that heroes in Overwatch could eventually be retired after more heroes are released.

"We would leave the door open to that. I think the fact that we chose the business model we did – that the game comes with all the heroes and we’re giving you everything [extra] for free so far – allows us to retire a hero without feeling bad about it. But I think we have a long way to go before heroes will need to be," he said.
Now, to be fair he's saying they're not planning to do that anywhere in the near future, but the fact that they even consider this is beyond retarded.

Ahahahaa, that is just beyond the word "retarded" - fucking seriously Kaplan?

Game is absolutely finished if they pull that sort of shit.

It's not planned in any near future. He said it this way simply to make sure no one can claim that he promised otherwise should they ever feel forced to do so. :p That something like this gets asked that early in the game's life cycle surprises me more.

The three games (LoL, Dota, TF2) most comparable to Overwatch have never retired characters (changed models, skill sets, ect, yes) but not retired. This is just more cutting content from Blizzard to either make money or add something that was basically the same thing.

Don't get me wrong, I get your point, that it's not happening anytime soon (if it ever does), but there is literally zero reason to do it unless THEY want to remove them for whatever stupid reason.

I get your point, but as I said earlier, this shouldn't even be considered an option for the future. That's not "a door that needs to be kept open", that's a door that needs to be shut, locked, the keys to it thrown away and never be spoken of again.

And as Mertico rightly pointed out, look at LoL or Dota2 for example. They've got a shitload more characters than Overwatch will ever have. Do they retire old characters? No, instead they revisit them and change their outdated playstyle/models up so they fit better into the current version of the game. That should be an option, not outright "retirement" of them.

I also find it really worrying that he says they're giving us everything extra for free "so far".

Yeah that's got me worried too, he also seems to think the launch content and what's followed is somehow something special, like they've done us a favour. Newsflash Kap; it's not, it's pretty bog-fucking-standard for a triple A game of this type. If anything, it's lacking on the content.
