    Summer Games 2017 (August 8 - 28)

    Last year's skins coming back, normal non-event prices for those
    New skins for Junkrat, Mercy, McCree,Widowmaker, (Roadhog) and more
    2 lucioball maps (new one is Sydney)
    Competetive lucioball (can get to top 500)

    Got the impression that he'd moved on from skins when talking about Widow and McCree to "other cool things" to be excited about.

    Meh. That's a very small amount of new stuff, and I hated Lucioball.

    That roast on Roadhog though !
    If you have to attack a person instead of what they're saying, then you've already lost the argument.

    Good for players that missed the event, good for players interested in OW.
    I think i'll pass, i have no urge to come back and stress the hell out. :P
    Here was a level 85 Enhancement Shaman. Now there is just an epitaph.

    So you mean this year we can actually BUY the skins etc? Last year they could ONLY drop in the boxes, meaning if you had a million credits you had no use of it to get the skins

    Yeah, it sounds like you can. Which is a good thing, and just like every event after Summer Games.

    They are also much much cheaper.
    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.

    Old ones will be cheaper, there are new skins and other items which will be the higher price.

    Yeah I was referring to last years.

    Ah yeah I can get that soccer skin for Lucio at a reasonable price. Don't care for the event but it's good enough for the brawl cap.

    Other events haven't had major leaks, those that did came from official sources in other regions before they were picked up on as "leaks". Think the first summer games was the only real leak through the Xbox store?

    We'll probably see something a few hours before it goes live though, that seems the typical MO.

    no offense to anyone who likes em but i kinda feel like her devil and valkalrye skins look like cheap cosplays. like so many other skins where they "are" something (a witch, a cyborg, w/e) they ARE that thing. while for those ones it looks like a "well made' costume. they are certainly 'fun" but as for me the only skins she' shad i could stand where her uprising and witch skin (the second of which i dont have)
    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
