I dunno, I like the idea of a beefier Battle Mercy. I play a lot of QP, and you can't rely on anyone but yourself in QP.

New patch is live. Deathmatch and TDM are now a thing, played out over all the old maps (with smaller play fields) plus 1 new map. Roadhog got a small buff, and Junkrat has 2 concussion mines now. I was playing TDM earlier and wrecking with Junkrat, it felt like playing Q3 all over again. :up:

The most spammy character of all needed an extra way to spam. Makes sense :up:

Halloween event is live. New skins are available. I'm particularly fond of the new Symmetra skin:

Her gun for that skin is awesome, especially with the golden gun skin on top of it. :up:

If I remember correctly, you can set the screenshot resolution in the game's graphics settings. Not sure if you can set it to a higher res than your display and if it will even render he screenshot natively at that res, but it's worth a shot.

The new patch is out. Moira is playable and Mercy's Resurrect has a cast time of 1.75 seconds instead of 0.

The Resurrect change is a good start for Mercy, but she's still OP.

Moira definitely can't solo heal. I've only played a few matches as her, but I like her right click so far. It will take some time to get into the right rhythm to see if she's any good. I'm thinking that Moira and Zen on a team with a few tanks could put out a decent amount of damage. :up:

New winter event started. There are some new nice winter themed skins and a new brawl that's a Yeti hunt where 5 Mei's try to kill a single Winston (as Yeti). Winston can eat 4 pieces of meat to trigger his ult. Mei's ult is basically replaced with Junkrat's steel trap. It's fun for a few rounds.

Just for a few rounds. There was a game that came out not too long ago with that basic mechanic, and it flopped despite being a fresh change for PvP. The name escapes me.

Evolve

Played Yeti Hunt twice to the achievements. Done with that.

Evolve failed because it was riddled with issues. And it was little more than a vehicle for outrageous DLC delivery.

This new PvE event is excellent.
Time for a story mode, Blizzard.

Blizz said a couple of days ago on Twitter that story mode is not gonna happen.

I prefer the Uprising event actually. It felt like it was a bit more dynamic. This one just feels like a long rush forward.
Still, it's a welcome change of pace from quick play or competitive.

As a Mercy main, this one's a no-brainer. :p :up:

Apparently it's not cross-platform though, so if you unlock on PS4, you can't use it on PC.

The new Find A Grouo feature is awesome. Find and play with like-minded people with a few clicks.

The new hero though... Hammond the Hamster? Surely they are trolling.

It's the mech, though, not the Hamster?

So that charity skin raised $12.7 million, setting a record. Pretty impressive. I hope they do it again in the future, maybe an in-game ice bucket challenge for Mei or something. :up:
