    MAke your voices heard.
    I tend to find the official forum is a tornado of idiots and an earthquake of trolls. You make a legit post to improve the game like leaving the name of the random arcade game up longer so you can tell the difference between random heroes, mayhem and mobawatch and a second later it is buried on page 7 behind 10,000 "OMG I play X and Y counters X so nerf X!" Posts.
    If you push a button that finds you a 'random group' and it gives you a random group of people with random skill and random knowledge then you have no right to complain that a 'random group' button did what it was designed to do. The fault lies in your inability to make friends to play with instead of relying on a button designed to be random. It is a 'random group' button, not a 'best of the best' button.

    What I'd like to see is either having experience shared between the PTR and the live game. We've got custom matches on live now, so people are able to do shenanigans anyway, and if you shared XP between the two, you'd incentivize more people to play on the PTR; testing Orisa right now wouldn't be without rewards.

    I *would* turn off the bonus lootboxes from brawls, on the PTR, so there isn't two sets of those you can farm. And lootboxes opened and coins spent on the PTR wouldn't carry over to live, so you could still use those for testing purposes without hurting your main account. We're just talking about the base XP for playing matches, so playing matches on the PTR is just as rewarding as playing on live.

    I actively avoid the PTR outside of a couple matches now and then to personally test something, and that's just to get a personal feel, not test it against opponents. I played 4 or 5 matches with the Bastion changes, and I've played 2 or 3 with Orisa, and I probably won't go back to the PTR. I would, if my XP gains were carried over, and I'd feel more able to give proper feedback with more testing done.

    Same was true of the WoW PTR, but it had a bigger community, and progression raiders looking for World/Server Firsts had to be on the PTR to practice, so they got plenty of action there. Overwatch just doesn't have that same drive, which is why they're not getting feedback; playing on the PTR is disincentivized.

    Did post it in a couple of threads, but as has been noted those sorts of threads get lost very quickly, especially over the weekend when moderation is non existent.

    Seems a lot of people are echoing the same thoughts though. She's not a great anchor but supplements Reinhardt and Zarya so well that it's hard to know where to buff her. 100 HP wouldn't be game breaking any more than her existence is, and she will need it when people aren't using Rein.

    You're better off posting on Reddit for legitimate feedback. Blizzard may not be there often, but really, do they ever show that they're actually reading teh forums and legitimate complaints? Nope.

    Not the first reference they made. I think it was a Pandaren in WoW named Pink Peony that was an obvious reference to Pinkie Pie. Eh, everybody does it.

    In any case, patch goes live in a few days, can't wait to actually try her out.

    Have to search this one up. Pinkie Pie is allways worth it just for the LOLs.

    This is the fun thing about Blizz Games, the references. Even after years and years of playing you missed at least 50.


    Bummer, didnt sell a ChimmyCherry...or CherryChanga....or ChimmyCherryChanga.....what do you think sounds best?


    Also, cant wait to test Orisa, even when in the first week all games are 6 v 6 Orisa.....

    Honestly, I wasn't thrilled about Orisa at first.

    I expected Doomfist too much, so it's purely my fault. I got over hyped like most of the players.
    Her design also didn't appeal to me on first look, but then I started noticing small tidbits, like colors connected to Numbani,
    how Efi designed her.

    And then I saw her eyes and how they change during gameplay. I was amazed at the amount of work Blizzards puts in the game.
    The eyes go X X when you hit her, she can be happy ^ ^ and so on.

    Another thing was her kit. I thought it was a rehash from other heroes, and it is in a smaller scale. BUT she was created by Efi who's a kid
    and the abilities flow together so great.


    21st March can't come fast enough. I'll buy skin and highlight intro as soon as she's on too!

    She gets released on Tuesday. I don't think I'm going to do comp that day because you're either going to get a very good Orisa, or a very terrible one because everyone and their mother is going to want to play her.
