What's the best strat once you get to the Orisa's on Legendary with the set 4 team? I just don't see how that group has the DPS/survivability to kill all of the Bastion's they throw at you and get the Orisa's in time. I beat it with Orisa/Bastion/Mercy/Rein with like 5 seconds left, lol.

Let the the Torb snipe the turret Bastions since his gun has no damage fall off and keeping a turret alive is not worth the hassle outside of Molten Core. Mercy works too but she'll​ probably be busy. It allows you to stay together instead trying to move four people through all the bullets not to mention save resources for the tanks. Just take your time, stay together, and when you hear a tank Bastion coming, find a defensible position to fight it.

I've gotten Tracer's skin so far. Probably one of the ones I wanted least, but at least it only took like 9 boxes. Have gotten 3 legendaries, but two were dupes, so far. Have 6000 coins (haven't been playing much lately or I'd have a lot more), so I can hopefully I can get a few more skins from XP and weekly boxes and buy a couple more that I want before the event is over.

I hope they add some sort of permanent PvE element to the game, it's a great way to cool down after getting stuck with some particularly bad teams.

Opened 13 boxes without buying and got nothing but the bastion skin

:(

That's better than me. I haven't opened that many yet but have only gotten icons, sprays, emotes and currency. Had 2 purples that ended up being currency.

Mercy skin.
Torb skin.
Bastion skin.

So far, after maybe 15-16 boxes. Also few more things, like icons and sprays. Not that bad.

I already got three legendary skins... But all of them are old.

Never had this problem before. For me it looks like they nerfed new skins' droprate but maybe I'm wrong.

I've been getting dupes of all the legendaries I have. Out of 11 or 12 boxes, I've gotten Reinhardt's skin and not much else.

Someone loan me their luck!

The banter in this was really good and a nice way to get some lore inserted into the game. Probably won't be playing any more but it was a fun one time thing for me.

I only got one legendary and it was Sombra's Los Muertos skin, which I didn't want because I had the Azucar skin and was pretty happy with that.

I love people , squishy people, running away from me the healer during the pve event, and then they quit the game because no one wants to leave the objective area to go pick his ass up again for the fifth time

I've gotten Mercys legendary twice. You can have some of my luck.

Just need Mcrees and Reindharts to complete the set

Beat "Any Hero" on Legendary, and once we were done one of the guys said "y'all know the achievement is for the stock insurection mode right?"

And so I moved over to basic Insurrection. Very Hard wasn't too challenging, but Legendary has proven pretty rough.

Had a few great groups, and we got close but kept screwing up the orisa glitch, got gunned down by the 2nd turret bastion a lot.

If you know a good tracer/torb/rein, you can clean this up no problem if you communicate. A good mercy helps but isn't as important, you basically try to damage boost tracer while healing rein every so often

I got both of Torbjorn's Legendary skins from some recent loot boxes, so I'm pretty happy on that front. I wanted an origins skin for him (along with Reinhardt, McCree, & Widowmaker), so 3/4 is pretty awesome!

I also like Reinhardt's new Epic Skin, but I'm hoping we get a skin of him back during the Omnic Crisis.

Got the D.Va intro right out of the gate, so that means I'll never see anything else I want unless I buy it...

Able to grab Reinhardt, Mcree, and Genji's legendaries. Hoping I can get Mercy and Widowmaker before this event ends.

Just got Mercy tonight... too many skins for me to choose for her now o_O

Still stuck on basic insurrection on legendary. We can usually get to the final 3 orisas, but it takes a ton to kill the 2nd orisa, and the last two are an absolute pain, tracer does 0 damage at range, the shields, uhg, IDK how we're gonna manage it

who the fuck chooses widowmaker for uprising

A long time ago, I was in Burma. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So, we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anybody who traded with him. One day, I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.

I have literally every skin except Genji and Orisa. Honestly this luckiest I've ever been with RNG maybe ever. Got Torb skin from my free box. Got McCree and Widow back to back.

6 boxes last night. I got legendary gold, an old Junkrat legendary, and one of the new Torbjorn skins. Got a few purples in there but I already had them. Not bad.

Really want the Mercy and Tracer skins. I'll have to see what I buy at the end of the event. Back to 4K coins!

Got the Reinhard skin twice and that's it.
Same with me. I really don't feel like spending much credits (or money) on this event because there are only a few things I really want and would rather continue to save up for the next event. Ugh.

Around 25 boxes (11 of which were via real money), and I got 4 of the new legendaries (including Mercy's finally), along with the two epic skins. I also gotten a legendary skin for Sombra and a legendary currency box.

I kind of dig Orisa's Null Sector skin, but don't think I would spend currency on it if I don't get it via loot box.

Any legends out there who've got the Uprising on Legendary down? Been trying all day with various friends and have been within a couple shots of killing the final Orisa but ultimately running out of time. Trying to beat it before they patch the door exploit.

I play Tracer.

Only skin I've gotten so far is Bastion's, so I guess I'll see if I have any better luck this coming week. Should be fine as I have 6k credits saved up and I can just buy the two I want at the end if it come down to that.

I finally got the Widow skin I wanted today, in my 25th box.
I was becoming suspicious that the game was holding out on me in regards to that costume, because it knew Widow is my most used/favorite character.
