    DVa's skin is nice, but her problem always is you don't really get to see it as during the starting period of a match when you have a window to do emotes she's in her mech. And her mech is always sort of the same.

    Gotta say, none of this year's legendaries really strike me, but funnily enough the epic skins are the opposite. Usually it's them that come off uninspiring, but this time I like each of them.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    Lucky rolls gave me three of the new skins, Genji, Orisa and Hammond; they're nicer than I first thought now that I got to see them from gameplay perspective. Though Orisa suffers from the same problem as DVa's mech, its variations being mostly the same due to form factor. It's like customizing a car: At the end of the day the basics are still the same, where as a person changes a lot with a makeover. This applies to Hammond as well, but the snow-covering this year is unique enough that it manages to stand out a bit more. DVa's character skin was probably my favorite this year, but since it's overshadowed by her mech I gave it a pass.

    So I didn't end up coughing up more tokens this year than 2000 for Mei and Moira. Turns out I actually don't like the penguin suit :P
    Now you see it. Now you don't.
