Blizzard's Overwatch Catch-All

That said, as of today it's been interrupting the stream every few minutes to show an ad, which I didn't realize was a thing. Rather jarring in that they cut in any old place, not between matches or anything.

Are you sure you are logged in to Twitch Prime (if you have it). I've never seen an ad and I thought that was the point of having Twitch prime.

I wonder how large of a Ministry grant it took to develop that.

Funny enough, I own both the "Evolution of Man" silly walk T-Shirt as well as this one:

Hey, Minotaar, you get to be my age, you are damn happy to have a steady, uninterrupted stream.

Here are comparisons between the Twitch desktop client at Source (1080 60) and MLG at 1080 60. I couldn't line up the exact same moments but it still illustrates my issue well: Album (Best viewed fullscreen)

So am I getting a different quality than people here? I have 150Mbps down and have 0 issues with other streaming services.

Ah, I don't have Prime or anything (not sure what you get for it even). I just watch via Twitch sporadically and had never seen an ad before yesterday.

Oddly, the ads were all "Overwatch on Twitch" sorts of ads, which seems like a weird message to interrupt Overwatch on Twitch for, but there you are.

For me twitch looks comparable to your MLG pictures, both in the desktop client and via the browser. Dunno what's going on, I guess the twitch side thinks your connection is slower than it is?

Ok good to know. The quality issues are the same whether on the desktop or browser. I'll have to spend some time and figure this out. I wonder if it has anything to do with my network adapter settings like jumbo frames or something like that.

If you have Amazon Prime, definitely sign up for twitch prime. It's free (Just link your accounts) and you get free stuff for games, free games, and no ads! it's awesome.

When you want your point back

Nice Hamma Down...

Here are 2 videos from last nights shenanigans...

1st - The Winston Rage boops

2nd - Highlights from the rest of the night. Lil long but it was a good night...

Clips from Last night. We learned not to mess with Hard Roadhog2 on Ilios...

Hard Roadhog2

Boopin' Amoebic, sorry if it felt like you were targeted...

Highlights from the rest of the night...

I like how you made sure to include my "Hit the Self Destruct button before hitting my boosters in the window" flub in that third video.

Makes me feel really good.

That's ok, nobody saw me hammering down in my own spawn that night

Was being Revived and surrounded by enemies, mashing Q so that as soon as I was up Hammer Down would go off. Instead Mercy died, the revive never finished, a split second later I was in the respawn room Hammering Down.

It was quite non-effective I must say.

Torbs daughter Brigitte!

Would be neat to see her as a new tank character, filling out a 3rd anchor tank role

There hasn't been a new defense hero yet has there?

In the top right it looks like that hammer can be on a chain.

You're right, and it looks like the sides of the hammer fold out into more of a pickaxe type of configuration.

There, I'm contributing!

More OW minifigures came in today! Widow, Genji, and Soldier

Nice! Widow looks a lil creepy...

Soldier looks like he has a hairpiece on.

Junkrat looks pretty awesome.
Hanzo and Reaper look like they could be in a Star Wars Lego set.

I have a feeling that Brigitte is going to be a WoW Hunter and have a pet and that pet is the Jetpackt Cat. Either that or Jetpack Cat is the ult. Maybe both. The ult is a controllable Jetpack Cat

Taken from a good Reddit post:

This appears to be a blueprint for a Crusader shield, as we already know Brigitte has a flail and chain - she'll look a little something like [this](http://www.heroesway.net/wp-content/...)

in game Translations; Kattmat (Post-It Note top left) - Cat Food, Morrhår - Whisker, Kompalt - Compact
Beneath the blueprint for the shield you can see a a rocket thruster of sort with a flame (or tail) coming out from behind.

Yes. There is a cat in the top right.

The pencil on the bottom right does say '07', but the fact it's captioned "Last Minute Check!" suggests that it'll be coming out VERY soon

Rein should be the Iron Man Hulkbuster set repainted and without the helmet.
Roadhog can just be a modified Jabba figure.

Patch is live now. Sombra changes and Doomfist ammo recharge increase.

They weren't already? I've noticed this is an even bigger thing now.
