Yeah, most guys I meet have certain main heroes maxed out till 20, with rest of the collection around 1-5 level bracket. There is only one other guy who levels with me and he has all at level 10 minimum and also 20-something heroes at max level.

I mostly did it to unlock master portraits. It being pretty much the only thing you were able to "progress" on. I also did a lot of it without steampacks. Blizz given steampack usually going to waste since I would be on holiday or work. One other thing that makes it difficult to level is that not all heroes were strong during the "meta". Though mostly playing QM games, weird combinations were most common. After the smooth and cooperated TL runs with voice chat, the QM matches were living hell. I would just look at that laning Morales (when objective is up and we are 2 levels ahead) and just facepalm mentally. Or "split" pushing Sylvan(asses) who would not leave the lane when enemy gank squad goes their way. 11+ deaths were common on them. So I did my best trying to play with friends xD


On the subject of master skins. Oh yeah, most are just atrocious. I would say Xul Master Skin is what a master skin should look like. That skin truly levels up a character's look in a good way.

Also, I thought mastery taunts were April Fool's...

Split-pushing Sylvanas is just a waste of time in general. She's probably one of the worst specialists for split pushing, and it's even worse because she actually gains value from pushing with someone else since she stuns towers. (Pairing her up with a Valla is insane)

I like Cho'gall, Tyrande, Tyrael, Thrall, Jaina, Kael... probably a few others. The D3 heroes are okay mostly because they just give them existing gear.

Welp, that's D.Va.

Also, my ability to care about HotS going down the drain.

Seriously though, if only there were a game, a recent game! Where you could play your favourite Overwatch Characters...

A D.VA IS THE FEMALE VERSION OF A HUSTLA YASSS

I'm honestly not very interested in Deathwing, but if/when he comes, it'll be cool i guess. They're obviously trying to make Overwatch a fullblown category (as they should, given it's became one of Blizz flagships) so stop being bitter.

DVA is at least a reasonable choice, but yeah, I've said it before: Too many Overwatch characters already, and now we get Genji AND DVA together.

>Still no Kel'thuzad, Baal, Mephisto, Belial, Imperius, Arcturus Mengsk, Fenix

But we get the fucking Weeb Ninja from Overwatch.

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

It's laughable.

These cross game promotions really work well with OW and Heroes. Now liek I said I dont see the big deal but yes I kinda agree I would really like to see KT and Mephisto, Imperius especially but it looks like they wanna ride the OW hype still.
I dont doubt after this promo we don't see an OW hero for a few months, but I could be wrong.
Looks like Gurzog going back on ignore

When hanging out at Blizzcon with Justin Dye he totally forgot who was already a playable hero and was namedropping characters that were real far down the pipeline like they were already finished.

If things haven't changed since then, D. Va might be a bit more than your average hero in a pretty unique way.

I get that D.Va was apparently the most requested Overwatch character according to various polls, but it still seems weird to me to add Genji and Hanamura but not Hanzo.

Oh they meant the cinematic welp.

Do you mean the veteran chests? There are also basic chests that will contain ONE (any quality, so most likely to have a voiceline) hero specific item. These chests obtained every 5 levels. They will even have a different name, like "Valla Loot Box" on the opening menu.

On the good side i did get Cheerleader Kerrigan, Sakura Auriel, Widowmaker and Novazon. On the bad side i had to buy Warchief and RG Sylvanas. They also need to step up their WC banner game.

Been playing a fair bit the past day. While I think this is overall a great update feature-wise, the game still suffers from the problem of tanks like Anub, Artanis, Arthas, Diablo, and Zarya being too powerful while tank-busters like Tychus being too few, too easy to counter, or in Zul'jins case too reliant on a Morales or Malf babysitting them.

If they don't start working to remedy this very quickly, the people they gained/brought back with this spiffy new shinies aren't going to stick around long.

Eh, Zarya is a tricky thing to fight (gotta avoid hitting her shields), but typically those bulky slow tanks are torn apart by any strong ranged AA carry (Tychus, Valla, Raynor, Zul'jin) and don't do very well against most mages either.
