First attempt we failed in the 3rd phase because our Reinhardt quit after the first phase so the payload was completely defenseless other than our offense.

I tried.

Might have to do this with friends.

They should give her a selfie taunt so you can style on em with a repeat of the intro.

Me and friends have a hard time getting past the orisas at the end on legendary. Everytime we get a bit further, there is a bastion in his ultimate outa nowhere and tears us to shreds... Best 6h of my life so far.. <3

Mode is really fun. Love the banter that you get when you play it vanilla.

Got Genji and Mcree's event outfits along with 76's emote. Out of 7 boxes.

I've also now completed my Zarya goth collection. Sigh.

8 boxes opened from level up/weekly rewards

Blackwatch Genji and Talon Widowmaker. Now to get Blackwatch McCree and Selfie Highlight for Dva and I'm all done for this event. I'm having way more luck than the chinese new year event, didn't get a single legendary from the lootboxes on that one.

Ive opened about 15 event boxes so far. Ive been grinding as much as I can to earn that 3000 for the new Widow outfit. I usually dont play Overwatch that much and I know I'll want Mercys sexy witch outfit when Halloween rolls around, so Im hoping I'll get that Widow in a box before the event ends. The thought of having to re-grind another 3000 coins for Mercy is not a comforting one.
I've gotten 3 Legendaries since this event started...

Same. Orisa seems like a must with her shield.

I've also had good games with Lucio.
Finished hard three times.

Mercy is a goddess here with the beam enhancement and combos with Bastion like PPj.

Tobs is great had a good run with him and I had a blast playing Rein. Mercy helps Rein s ton given his hammer range.

CTF mode just reinforces how this game and its maps were definitely not designed for CTF play.

I think 9 of my 10 matches ended in a draw. Small sample size, though.

I bought 11 Lootboxes and only got the Solider 76 Emote. The rest was sprays and voice lines. I don't know what I was expecting to happen and I'm ashamed of myself. I've got 10,000 Gold overall though, so I think I'll be fine if I just play it regularly. I was saving it for a reason I suppose.

For those who are playing the PC version, is anyone down to complete the Uprising mode & earn some achievements? Already got the ones that involve completing it with all four heroes & 8 different characters.

CTF really needs to be more offensive. Heroes like Sym really ruin it for me tbh.

Had a good run on Uprising on hard difficulty, Zen is just as strong as the regular game, if you can manage his discord and heals.

Someone also showed off a cheeky strat:
When your team has cleared most of the last wave while you defend the cart as it starts up, send your fastest member to the door your supposed to escort the cart to and have them sit there. It bugs EVERY omnic spawn along that route, none of them will spawn.

No. Just go there and wait for the payload to arrive. No enemies will spawn.

Me and my friends still can't beat Legendary. The enemies respawn from all sides. Fuck.

Beat expert with 3 solo q randoms last night. In legend I mostly get to either point 2 or point 4. And then lose with 1 or 2 minutes remaining.

Hope I can get it though, but it's damn hard with randoms I feel.

Stylosa did a 50 lootbox unboxing and the only legendary he got was for Tracer (he got it twice). Everything else was Epic or lower. I feel like they totally nerfed legendary drop rates even tho they deny it.

Just bad luck. I've been the luckiest I've ever been during this event. I bought 24 boxes with 20 bucks and got every Overwatch classic blue skin. I got Torb on my first free box. I got Widow and McCree in back to back boxes and I haven't even played THAT much.

I opened like 10 lootboxes tops since the start of this event and got every single legendary skin except McCree's.

Zero buys, of course.

Opened 10+ boxes so far. Got 2 legendaries - both normal ones I already had.

There's nothing worse than getting these old ass legendaries in these events.

So, you got all the luck available for this event and there's nothing left for us.

When does the week reset? I'm in EU right now hoping I can play tomorrow (Sunday) before the weekly reset. You get 3 lootboxes for 9 arcade wins, right?

I never get skin(s) I want, no matter how much I farm so these events usually mean frustration and me stopping playing until the next one.

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.

Yep. In Europe, at least in France it resets around 1 or 2 am on Tuesdays, so you've got time.

I have to say, there's 2 things about this event that I applaud blizzard for

1) opening it up to play the event with all heroes and

2) putting it in the arcade to expedite getting lootboxes

Without these two things I'd probably play this 2 or 3 times and call it quits the same way I did with junkensteins revenge
