    Overwatch comic - Uprising

    https://comic.playoverwatch.com/en-us/tracer-uprising

    Seeing some sweet new skins that are gonna happen. Considering this all happened in the past, and everyone speculates that the next event is going to be lore-heavy, not sure how this is all going to be implemented. Maybe a Junkenstein-type event that takes you back to the past. If so, I'm not really big on being forced into playing a specific set of characters like that. Because between Torb, Mercy, Tracer, and Reinhardt, I'd rather...pass.

    PvE please. Also a lot of skins, but I feel like most of them will just be generic "overwatch suit" skins. The only ones that stood out were the potential genji and mercy skins. The rest is just more of the same and some skins are already ingame(soldier 76, reaper, ana)

    If they do another "set characters" thing, I hope they give us some flexibility, rather than the "these four heroes and that's it" of the halloween event. Especially since I'm not sure how well a Tracer/Rein/Torb/Mercy setup works; there's very little synergy off heroes who largely rely on it. The Halloween event, they could all handle themselves, for the most part. Here, they each have a clear "role", which means there's little opportunity to offset someone's mistakes.

    I want PvE, but I want a PvE with a LITTLE more flexibility. Maybe we're not reliving the past. Maybe it's a training-room event, like the X-men's Danger Room, where it's a training exercise to see how your four modern agents handle what the historical crew faced, and whether your skills/abilities are up to the task.

    I could be missing something but from what I've heard the event is taking place "present day". regardless it doesn't sound as fun as junkenstien's revenge.

    I hope it would be more like an overwatch dungeon or something, would be interesting. Would settle for man vs machine as well if it were a permanent addition to the game.

    Leak of the skins on XBox. I'm getting this feeling Widowmaker isn't getting anything this time either, all this happened while she was still a ballet dancer.

    To be fair this was before Overwatch hired Edna Mode to design their team costume. "No Capes!"
    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.
