I've been meaning to main Torbjorn every since his Magni Bronzebeard skin came out and I just never got around to it, but his rework looks really fun so I think now's as good a time as any.

Yeeeeeeeeeees! After so long it happened, and on a shitty match too. I already had the original ones that gave me Platinum, but lacked this one, so until a new hero comes out I have 100%

 

Picture of my 100%:

It's always on the shitty matches that I get mine. Bastion and Lúcios were on competitive games that I lost. As was the recent one I got this week. Moira's Antipode. It's bitter sweet as you got the trophy, but lost the match.

I genuinely enjoyed playing as Torbjörn. His reduced damage is a little disheartening, but the increased speed and instant turrets I hope will make up for it. He was easy enough for me to pick up, gets kills, and other than Reaper he is the only hero I trust to down tanks like Roadhog. Not just because of the turret. But because of his spread fire.

I was wondering when you guys were going to post. I would've done so, but I double posted by accident. Anywho:

 

I welcome any buffs for Reaper, as he's one of my favorite damage heroes.

 

Any experiences on the Halloween event so far? Or the reworked Torbjörn?

 

I've only gotten Doomfist's, but I want Pharah's, Moira's, and 76's. 

 

Torbjörn's new turrets are preferable, but it is a little more annoying to decommission them and set up new ones.

Turns out the reduced randomness is actually a DPS loss for Reaper, whoops.

Basically unless you're point blank where every pellet will hit, more pellets are focused on the outer edge, more likely to miss. So he's now more consistent, just consistently worse. I hope they fix this.

Well that's a damn shame. He's one of my favorite damage heroes. I would've figured that Reaper having to get up close and personal to deal damage was enough to balance out. I've heard Mercy's also getting a buff, but I stopped playing her after they slowed down her revive.

 

On an unrelated note, I finally got one of the skins I wanted yesterday! Moira Banshee!

Well there's already been a change in the PTR to aleviate it, they didn't intend any nerfs for him. Not sure what the numbers are like now, though.

Didn't post here yet because we had yet to receive Ashe on console. On Tuesday, the download would take too long, so I let it download overnight before going to bed. Yesterday, after work and class I finally got my hands on her. But I did so on Mystery Heroes for better results. The Coach Gun is a neat getaway, like Pahrah's ability. Her primary fire is nice. Her dynamite is a little awkward though. This I still need to improve on. Haven't gotten to Summon B.O.B. outside of target practice, so I can't really say how that holds up.

 

Overall, this might be my next gold weapon hero.

The Winter Wonderland event is here once again, so far I have gotten 1 new skin, Mercy's Sugar Fairy Plum.

Ah yes! Christmas has come to Overwatch once again! In my first 3 boxes, I got Roadhog's Fisherman skin. Pretty cool. The one I'm really after is Ana's Snow Owl. For this year, just Sugar Plum Fairy. Maybe Krampus. I did get Lúcio the Hedgehog though. Even if I don't pull any of the skins I really want, I've racked up over 3800 currency.

 

Also, I like the update they did for Asche. B.O.B. is glistening gloriously in gold.

There's actually quite a few I want. Genji's old one, Zenyatta and Reaper's new ones; maybe Roadhog's. But the only one I pulled was Pharah's old one. Near the end, if I don't have one of those, I'll buy it with the currency..

Oops, new map! Yeah, just right out of nowhere, they have new map for us, and it's Paris! I always wanted to see a map for Widowmaker, while yes we have the Chateau, it isn't a main map, but now we have one! It looks gorgeous, reminds me a bit of Numbani. Can't wait to try it out.

Well, by now the event is over. And all I've got to say is that I was disappointed. Didn't pull any skin from the event that I wanted (old or new). From the old ones, the ones I wanted were Roadhog, D. Va and Genji. And the only new one I got was Torbjorn. So I chose not to spend any of my currency on one and just save it for the Archive or Anniversary event.

 

That aside, Paris is now on all platforms. Say what you want about France, but I really like the map on a technical standpoint. Except maybe the narrow passageway in Attack, but I usually teleport past that with Reaper anyways.

 

What are your thoughts on Paris?

So Overwatch just got a workshop mode, meaning that people can program and change different things in the game. It was a cool idea at first, but thought it would be fairly limited from what Jeff told us in the video announcement, but already people have made a bunch of crazy things. Some of them are a bit silly, mostly just for a goof, but some may have a chance to become a real game mode, or at least worth trying out, like the gun game mode and PVP where everyone is the same hero, then changes to someone else every minute. If you want a taste, check out reddit, since everybody is posting their ideas on there:

So I discovered that you can be AFK in gungame as long as you at least move somewhat, so by putting the controller down and making sure the stick is continuously pushed, you can grind exp, and so I wanted to test how long it worked, so this is me coming back after 3 hours and the game still going on, so figured I would see if I could still win, and turns out that yes, I could. Sadly by timeout right when I get Torb, but I count it anyway. Skip to 4:00 to where I come back. Yes this is a weird video, but that's what you get. Ok byeeeeeeeeee

Overwatch 2 confirmed, a thing I was worried was real, as it made me wonder how they would handle the playerbase, but Jeff says that the way they are doing it is making everything in O2 also be in O1. Ok...so why buy the sequal exactly? I guess the story bits probably won't be in O1, but is that enough for a sequel buy for most people, considering that story was never the focus to begin with. I still don't get it, but am glad I don't feel forced to buy the new game (though I am sucker).

Same. I think I'll see user reviews before buying it. Because while there were some neat maps...I'm not sold yet.
