    Clearly the kind of hero we need.

    Well they're clearly a fairly long way along with her character design (seen in posters), voice actor, story (from the Junkertown intro cinematic), and even weapons if we look at those around Junketown so I really wouldn't be surprised if she was as soon as the next hero.

    My guess is the next hero will go beta two weeks before uprising and then release when uprising hits and this time uprising will feature blackwatch/future talon doing some behind the scenes of kings row and it will involve Reaper, Moira, McCree and the new talon tank character. My guess is it is Sanjay (Syms boss) in a suit of hard light armor.
    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.

    I think you're all forgetting Doomfist is simply a moniker, not any one specific person. Whomever holds the gauntlet is Doomfist. You could have an evil Doomfist and you could have a good Doomfist.

    Going by the old Numbani map and some lore, there's been three Doomfists. The first one was good (Hailed as "Savior" on the banner showing him) while the second one was not only evil but was the guy who the current Doomfist killed for his position and gauntlet.

    Overwatch twitter has since put out a tweet that may be hinting at what this year's Uprising event is about. It is an old mission report from Ana about an "Operation White Dome" involving her, Reinhardt, Torbjorn, and "Private First Class Emre Sarioglu." It is also likely the mission that is where Reinhardt and Torb became good friends considering it specifically mentions Reinhardt saving Torb's life.

    Which means he is dps as that team has a healer, a tank and a defence class on it.

    Now they are saying that Emre isn't the point of the leak, that it was to introduce the mission where Torb loses his arm, the next leak is his letter to his wife to tell her that he will survive and recover from his injuries and since Rhein and him were such friends for saving his life he wanted Rhein to be the god father and to let Rhein name his daughter.

    So now it looks like Bridgette may be hero 27. She is a part of the engineering guild and Squire to Rhein. She also repaired Rheins damaged armor by hand.

    What type of abilities would Bridgette possibly have?

    I'm hoping she's a tank. That role is looking kind of stale these days outside of D.va.

    I would say tank or defense, haven’t had a defense in a while. I wouldn’t mind getting someone who throws grenades of various natures and leaves land mines on the ground.

    So basically exactly like Junkrat?

    What I had in mind was more along the lines of explosives that blow up when you cross them rather than by manual detonation. Also various types of grenades like back in the days of TF, an emp grenade that sets off ammo when it hits causing a big of damage and forcing a reload. Smoke grenades that block line of sight. A gas grenade that makes you halucinate, a stun grenade that doesn't stop you from moving but rather your camera roll around making it hard to aim and manuever. A grenade that explodes into smaller grenades, one that creates a fire patch that acts as area denial dot. Ect.

    It looks like Bridgette is all but confirmed, image today includes a weapon schematic with Swedish writing on it of what looks like a giant mace that pops open in a T formation, and it must have a concealed chain in it. One of the words translates to flail, and the weapon is named Slagga.

    My guess is that Bridgette gets a Rhardt armor with a massive fucking flail, melee with a medium range?

    She is likely a tank and the Flail may act similar to Widowmaker's Grappling Hook, allowing her to get to higher places. She can use it again to get back to her team. Winston works the same way with his leap. It might work like Roadhog's hook and pull others toward her. It may just be a ranged weapon. Kaplan said she is meta changing but I didn't play at all last season so I don't know what the meta was.

    Dive Meta (very mobile heroes like Winston, Dva, Genji), strategy is to pick key enemies and kill them fast alltogether. S9 seems to come with a 3/4 tank meta again, where Moira is key for her AOE heal, this is where maybe Bridgette finds her place.

    I am really looking forward to nr. 27 as i play mostly tanks - Blizzard, let her out of the cage!!!

    We don't need more heroes, it's almost a mess as it is already. They need to balance what we got instead.

    Think we're pretty much confirmed for Brigitte next.

    i'm 900% sure that they are using every opportunity to make unique characters for the sake of variety, and also to build up the universe and flesh it out LONG before a hero is released.

    Remember the first time we saw Bridgette was in Reinhardt's comic, what? 2 years ago?

    So while i think it IS possible that characters like Lynx, or the Junker Queen might become heroes...like... The Junker Queen is just a voice on the map and a single, probably inaccurate, picture.

    and thats even assuming Bridgette is the hero. I can easily see them having the hero be Emre(?)'s kid who used Bridgette's help to create a tech suit that will help them prevent tragedies like what almost happened to Torbjorn.

    of course that japaenese leak plus the fact that everything in the last picture leads me to believe it IS bridgette.

    but remember how both DOomfist's tease and the original character Efi were created JUST to make Orisa's backstory. BUT that was info for doomfist, who did come out eventually.

    what is this thing called 'balance"

    balance doesnt exist in any game in existence and never has.

    i think what people mean by 'balance" is "expecting the devs to magically teach everyone how to use and counter each hero perfectly and mind control them into using the right strategy"

    Like ppl call scatter arrow unbalanced but wtf are you doing standing still in front of a sniper?
    (glad for the change but i've never seen it as unfair in a game where people can consistently 1 shot you)

    Not to mention the IDEA of balance in this game is ludicrous considering they intentionally make some heroes high skill cap and others low skill cap, some for quick aimers and some for people who cant aim. Like Ana seems HORRIBLY unbalanced considering her healing thouroughput and her CC. however its not really possible to compare that to someone like Mercy who can bring someone back to life and whos ultimate affects multiple people including herself.

    Ana is a big rewards for a well aimed healer who has a coordinated team, while mercy is good for a chaotic game and sacrifices some thourouput for mobility and the ability to bring people back from spawn if she has 2 seconds of saftey.

    Just like how in this game "maining" makes zero sense. There isnt SUPPOSE to be balance because all the heroes arent suppose to be equal. Hanzo should die EASILY if he solos roadhog because Hanzo isnt SUPPOSE to be in combat. and while a GOOD hanzo can kill a mediocre roadhog before he dies thats not the basis of the characters. Mei is SUPPOSE to be bad against long distance mobile heroes. Reaper is suppose to be a tank killer, Tracer is SUPPOSE to have a glass jaw and lighting legs.

    apparently the japanese overwatch accidentally gave a bad link that was listed as "bridgette tease" so unless that was a doctored image or whatever then yea.

    i figured the swedish in the tablet on the last picture BASICALLY confirmed it
    Its a bit nutty seeing someone literally replying to every post in a topic obsessed with belittle everyone for not thinking warcraft is crap, call OTHER people Addicts and fanboys. Lol You're addicted to hate and being your own fanboy, ya nutter butter

    The teaser before that doesn't at all pertain to Brigitte is my only doubt as to whether it's her, it could still reasonably be this Emre guy using armaments made by Brigitte, but idk. But even that is disputed by the filename 'leak' which names Brigitte. Either way, I'm hoping for a peel/antidive tank, with the chain flail hopefully also providing harassment against Pharmercy, this would be the perfect new hero.

    The original teaser talks about Torb's injury, which then ties into his letter written while recovering and talking about his promises to Reinhardt about her.
