Here's the full set of minifigures. Like the previous ones you won't know what you're going to get until you open it, and they're like $10 a piece. They all seem to be modeled after the Cute sprays though, based on the Reaper and Zarya ones I've seen (Also there's a good chance these will be exclusive to the Blizzcon store for awhile)

There will definitely be something OW related with the ticket, not sure what it would be though. They announced the digital items around this time last year, but since it was the 10th anniversary of Blizzcon the timing might be different this year.

I honestly wish they weren't in blind boxes. I just wanna buy the OW figures but I also have to get shit from the other IPs.

This is also why I've avoided buying these in the past, so naturally they made this set OOPS ALL OVERWATCH.

I got extremely lucky with the Cute But Deadly's. But man is it stressful to drop $10 on something that could be either crap or a repeat. My Walmart ended up discounting them down to $3 a month or so ago, maybe I'll hold out for these to hopefully come to Walmart and become clearance too.

It would have been my fourth win in a row so the easy SR would have been appreciated. Arg.

Would it go against the spirit of competitive if an idle/quit player was replaced by a bot? I mean, even if the bot is set at easy it would still fill in that extra spot.

A bot set to easy would be pure liability and free ult charge for the enemy team. Leavers suck, but better an open spot on your team than an easy bot or medium bot.

A hard bot, maybe, but then you'll have bots being more effective than actual players.

I hadn't considered the easy ult charge from a bot, you're right. I guess there really isn't a good solution for quitters.

Unless it just immediately ends the game and pairs you up against another team that just lost a team member and keeps whatever advantage/disadvantage either team had. Actually that sounds way too complicated lol

That's funny, although he probably should have set up somewhere else if he wasn't seeing anyone!

Up to my season high of 3168 before losing the last match. I've found that duo queuing is a huge advantage (countless people have said it, and now I believe it). Also Orisa is my new tank? She's better than I gave her credit for.

I think Orisa just needs a Soldier Sprint style ability called Gallop.

Winston, Rein and D.Va all have mobility options to go for health packs, Zarya's shields recharge and Hog's got huff, but when Orisa's in trouble she just dies.

She can do the thing where she dies slower!

I think an Orisa rework is coming, personally. She at the very least needs a new Ult since Mercy just does what Orisa does now. My guess is that they're going to change the drum to give people Fortify instead of attack boosting.

But that should also mean her fortify ability turns into something else, and yeah, a mobility ability of some kind would be nice. It's strange that she has 4 legs, yet is among the least mobile of all the tanks. Give the pony some kick!

Depending on what kind of ability it is though, they might have to rework her damage. Her gun is actually pretty good if you can aim with it. A mobility ability might make it OP.

That would be really cool and better than what it currently is, IMO.

It would benefit an entire team instead of just DPS/offensive tanks/Zen.

Yeah. It would even function as a counter to some ults. Currently, if a Zarya lands her graviton, there's no escaping it. But if Orisa can fortify everyone, that would be a cool counter ult to that.

I really want Winston and Orisa to get a Gorilla Punch and Horse Kick, respectively. Something to knock people away so Reaper doesn't eat them alive for free. It could also help initiate a fight by punting a tank into the back ranks of a team. Or punt a DPS or healer into your team for Winston. It would be like a Roadhog hook that's good.

I'm still new to the game and I think the SR system is balls and maybe should emphasize individual relative performance over wins and losses. Thoughts?

It's just tough to accurately assess that in such a team-based game. there's little carry potential so DPS needs good team support to get kills, support needs good tanks and anti-flankers to stay alive and therefore get good healing stats, tanks need support and DPSes taking some heat off them to stay alive and protect allies, etc.

Oh boy! The goody bag has an extra blind box figure and a mystery overwatch character hanger along with the Mercy.

I'm such a sucker.

Edit: No reveal for Overwatch, not surprised considering most of the goody bag stuff is Overwatch related, almost to the point of overkill.

Thank you both for the info.

And it was a waste of time that they didn't reveal all the virtual goodies, as I already knew about the WOW mounts. I wanted to see some Diablo and Overwatch stuff, gosh darn it!

So, question to players who've messed with their aiming settings (particularly console):

Do you have different sensitivity for different heroes?

Or is universality preferable to not mess up your aim when switching between characters?

I have identical aim settings for everyone - but a lot of folks prefer custom for different chars. Having Winston's sensitivity super-high, for example.

Majority of them

100/100 aim smooth/assist
60/60 hori/vertical sens
E Ramp

Widow/Mccree/hanzo have less auto aim/smooth and Hog has I think 50/50 or 40/40 on sensitivity
