    Not content with shoehorning Tracer everything into every event so far, they've decided to make a whole Tracer event...

    Also I'm in Iceland doing field work for most of it. FFS.

    You think it's just sheer coincidence that they thought 'King's Row event'... Then realised OMG THIS TRACER MAP DO STUFF FOR TRACER?

    I think it is cool that they're doing something outside of a holiday, maybe? Does anyone even have the foggiest idea of what this is? Besides new outfits and stuff for Tracer?

    Tracer is bae. Tracer is main. 319 hours on tracer in QP and across the seasons.

    I really don't dislike Tracer at all, I should play her a lot more than I do; I keep promising myself I will then I just end up playing Widow, Sombra and DVa anyway. I do think she gets a bit too much attention though, even for the poster girl.

    I love Tracer in the lore but there's 20-something goddamn other characters, most of which they haven't bothered to even include in any video.

    Be nice to have Zenyatta be a part of this. The robot that gets killed by Widow was his master/teacher

    I feel like this time around it may actually make sense for her to be actively involved in the event somehow given her character's background and the map in question. I do agree with you when it comes to previous events, though. Especially when there's heroes who don't tend to get a very good deal when it comes to new skins and other goodies.

    i'm confused by the sentiment. She got 1 more piece of media than other heroes (as the mascot thats pretty low) and 3/4 of a skin per event.

    anyways as others said Kings row. Kinda where she lives. Next thing people will complain that Mercy is the one with the Swiss outfit...
    I grew up Horde, and as a proud orc shaman I cant understand these people. "ooh we blew up your city and killed everyone you care about but thats no reason to be angry" "oh we destroyed your entire country and murdered your son, but get over it" "Oh we invade foreign countries and melt, torture and mind control our victims but the Alliance were negligent and accidentally sent Tauren into dangerous territory. THEY are the evil ones" The players hate hypocrites more than murderers

    Yes, clearly Kings Row was just randomly selected and they were simply forced to use Tracer because of it.

    Yes, clearly did they select Kings Row just to make a Tracer Skin for the new event and not because it was the Location of the Omnic Riot.

    Yeah, again, because setting it on King's Row and picking the Omnic Riot as the event were entirely random and somehow forced upon them. There clearly weren't any other lore events they could have chosen which have maps associated with them.

    Holy shit is this what you actually believe?
    You have not seen the event yet perhaps its the most important piece of lore?
    you really have the mindset that they would even DISCUSS "nah we cant do this event do another first so we cant make a Tracer Skin"
    They have a set shedule for events which they then make skins for which they seem fitting.
    How can you get your jimmies rustled so hard.

    In game events are not tied to a real world calendar, they can happen literally whenever the hell Blizzard wants them to happen. I mean, everyone was predicting the 'in game' event would be tied to the Numbani thing, this King's Row Omnic thing pretty much came from nowhere.

    They've pretty much confirmed Widowmaker's getting a new skin now, and that's who I'm mostly interested in; but there are other heroes that haven't had much either, but Tracer who I've been playing more of recently, who I don't dislike, has had an unfair share of the limelight - I'd say Zenyatta and Reinhardt had too.

    New Comic!

    I understand where you come from and I wish skins for Widow too since shes awesome and needs love too because she was friggin awesome in Alive. I just dont get the hate because when someone gets a skin since 11 other heroes will get a skin too. And as you said Zenyatta and Rein are "loved" ones too. But I just guess thats because they seem fitting to the event and not because they hate a hero. If I should have to decide a new Skin I could probably name few for tracer but for Zarya? I wouldnt even know.

    Also the Event video was posted and people complained about the Tracer skin that's why I reacted a bit harsh I guess because of the "even theme" thing. Since its lore heavy and with the new comic its just as I suspected a important moment for lore so thats why I stand with my statement when everyone said "uhh why kings row it will just be a new tracer skin mimimi".

    I hope we get a Lacroix Widowmaker skin. I would love that to death.

    €: Lmao tracer is hella ugly on the Comic Cover damn
