Blizzard's Overwatch Catch-All

Is this in addition to the 20% she already got?

It's in the PTR patch notes, so unless it's a docs mistake I guess so?

My understanding of the boop changes is that while it technically makes boops "more consistent" (since moving against the boop no longer means you get booped less / moving with the boop no longer means you get booped more), in practice it's a buff to booping, since it means the boop-ee can no longer "fight" the boop.

The boop's going to boop you as much as the boop is going to boop you, regardless of which combination of WASD you try to press while being booped.

Yeah I remember xQc (as a Rein main) was complaining against it since he can't defend himself as well against boops now. High skilled players who can predict an incoming boop will (in the last moment before getting hit) move towards the Lucio/Brig/Ashe/etc. since the forward momentum will reduce the force of the push.

I guess this kinda explains why sometimes I feel like my boops can launch an enemy several meters and other times it's nothing more than a light shove.

The boop changes should be nice then for Phara. The last adjustments to her made booping people off the map much harder and inconsistent.

A Mercy shutdown! Very nice!

Soldier's ult now targets rip tire which is unexpected.

As someone who plays a lot of both Lucio and D.Va, the ability to boop a flying D.Va makes me both happy and sad.

Yeah, and also Baptiste's immortality thingy. Forgot to mention that in my rundown. Those are the only two things mentioned in the notes, so I guess it still can't hit turrets, bongos, and so forth (which personally I find super annoying).

Blizzard EU is hosting the an insane cosplay competition with the best cosplayers in the EU showing off what they can create.

Team Russia - Classic D.Va (my favourite)

Team Spain - CNY Genji

Team Italy - Blackwatch Genji

Team Germany - Dragon Symmetra

Team France - Dwarf Torb

Team UK - Forrest Orisa

I'm REALLY hoping Orisa is actually 2 people like the classic horse costumes

Some Clips from tonight and one other.

Super happy with this recovery.

Somebody's been playing spiderman.

Sweet, this year's Archives event starts the 16th. Looks like a new one..

https://twitter.com/PlayOverwatch/st...

Finally started to actually try to play this on PC (bought it a few weeks back). I'm surprised at how much fun I'm having, almost to the point where I think it's because I'm new and I'm up against other new players. I think at some point I'll hit that spot where I'll need friends to play with otherwise frustration will win the day.

Come join us on Discord.

If I'm ever on at the same time. It seems like whenever I get on, the discord is empty.

Sometimes you just need to be first and we rush in like lemmings.

Can someone post a discord invite? I don't see it searching discord, and other invites I found here in teh forums seem to be expired.

Generally people start rolling in sometime between 8:00-9:00 Eastern in the looking for group channel. Though Sundays and Wednesdays tend to be a little bit of a lighter crowd.

Typical Torb. For the Horde!

And Hamfter

Some fun shenanigans tonight. Thanks everyone.
BH in all his squeezing with gloves glory..

Highlights from rest of nite..

I really did not recognize my own voice until the end.

It was nice being the guy throwing off the matchmaking :D. I definitely felt like I learned some things though.

We were talking in discord the other day about the original Mercy ult, so I decided to dig out this gem featuring Staygold, Medmey, Amoebic, and Crimeny.

Featuring myself and LocalGod

Here's mine.

Nice pull, @HBIII. Pharah/Mercy was incredibly OP in unranked games back then, and likely still is, honestly. That late rez of the whole point was great, though.

It's an ooooollld clip. Back from before I discovered Zarya and the joys of tanking
