    I see. I really need to get started on reading the comics and just in general anything that isn't just the shorts.

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.
    I doubt very much a mace wielder will be able to counter pharmacy. Only two things can counter it and that is long range accurate Widow like snipes and someone who can fly up there and be more accurate than a slow moving rocket.
    Soldierand McCree arenot bad but Soldier has a bad prolonged spray and McCree has a low rate of fire, missing a shot or two means McCree diesfirst.

    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.

    So there's a new teaser today:



    Goes with:



    The letter:
    My dear Ingrid,

    I know that by now you have gotten news of my injuries in our latest mission. While the descriptions may sound terrible, the doctors are quite sure I'll make a full recovery. Even Angela came to visit me! On the matter of my arm, I promise to make it my first priority to construct a suitable prosthesis that will make everyone forget that it was ever gone. If only Angela's dreams of tissue regeneration were a reality! I told her she should be working harder!

    They tell me that you have not yet gone into labor, so I am holding out hope that I will be able to be by your side back home in Gothenburg when the time comes. Just wait a little longer for me!

    You may have heard that Reinhardt is responsible for saving my life. I've heard the story at least four different times myself, already, each time more unbelievable than the last. Exaggerations, as you know how he can be. All the same, they've decided to award him a commendation for "conspicuous bravery." Could two words better describe the big oaf?

    He has been bothering me insufferably at my bedside. Half in jest, I suggested that if it would shut him up, I would allow him to name our daughter, as he has been badgering me about it these past months. He, of course, took me at my word. Truth be told, I had been considering making him her godfather, and I hope you'll forgive me for making this decision without your consultation. We can only hope she doesn't take after him too much.

    I told him that you would have to agree to any name he chose, so let’s hope it's a good one (though I fear that may be beyond his abilities, given some of the ridiculous names he gives the characters in his "true stories"). I'm getting sick of this hospital, so I am hoping to return soon.

    Love,
    Torbjörn




    So almost certainly Brigitte, and she carries a small mace and shield. And perhaps a Jetpack Cat as seen in the schematics under the final image (top).

    Will probably be a mace that turns into a flail (slaga means flail)

    Some minor typos in today's tease though :P

    In the background of the second picture you can see the mace extended on a chain like a flail but it almost looks like a grappling hook with the head extended like claws as well.

    Not sure how legit this is but seen someone saying this was posted instead of the image on the Japanese twitter account.

    Kind of surprised they put out another teaser instead of just revealing the hero today. We all know who it is at this point.

    It's legit. People have verified that it actually came from Blizzard. The question is was it an accident or intentional because the same thing happened at OW twitter Brazil.

    Plot Twist:

    Brigitte is the junker queen.
    Do not ask questions for which you do not want the answers.

    My guess is that she gets a suit of armor like Rheins and goes from squire to knight, has a shield like Rhein but it is much smaller and more of a personalized shield so she can get close enough to start using the flail in aoe strikes. I can imagine it could rocket forward and nail someone into a wall without her physically having to be there like Rhein, an improvement since Rhein tends to be toast once he flies into the enemy team but not as lethal in terms of damage since less weight.

    And just for lols when she ults she releases jetpack cat to hunt your ass down, ROWR!!!!

    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

    They need to boost some heroes drastically, like most defense heroes. People give up the second someone pick a Torbjörn or Bastion or Widow in comp. And I can't blame them, as those heroes are pretty useless in A LOT of situations and overall, people can not perform well with them.

    considering all new characters save Doomfist that has been released post launch have been female I reckon it's lightly.
    (Not giving "shit", I realize there was a huge M to F disparity at launch)
