    Whenever I fight a Tracer, I can barely get them in my sights, and every time I play as Tracer, I get shredded instantly.

    I had a lot more luck with Tracer than I expected to. I don't play as her a ton, but she's fun for annoying the shit out of people and maybe distracting them from the objective for a few seconds.

    Also: I really enjoy taunting Reinhardts as Pharah. I definitely matadored one into a pit, and I've definitely never been prouder of myself, but it's a lot of fun to just...juke around them and fire rockets into their ass, or to pop a concussive missile just above their head and watch them helplessly float off the point to their death

    Also one big thing that k think the game does a bad job incentivizing: do not be afraid at all to switch characters frequently depending on what your team is having trouble with

    The single biggest thing that stops me from switching mid match is that it means losing your ult charge.

    I wish I was better at Tracer, considering how much I like the character.

    playing as tracer gives me an excuse to show off my awful british accent, which is essentially, "don't use any consonants ever"

    Tracer is fun! I haven't had a ton of luck with her ult, but it's very satisfying to land it

    Speaking as Reinhardt, Tracer's ult is the bane of my existence.

    A tracer once hurled her bomb at my shield, stuck it to a corner of it, then i swung round and put that corner right in her face as it exploded, killing her with her own bomb

    Get wrecked you annoying gnat

    Had some nice matchrs with fellow PAers this evening; we did a silly attack on Volskaya with 5 D.Vas and a Mercy, and it was glorious how we capped point A.

    Bonus points too for each D.Va having a different skin :biggrin:

    But the end was brutal, they had 2 Torbjorns, 2 Bastions, a Mei and a Zarya which was a very tough nut to crack.
    10 seconds remained, (I was the only player who still played D.Va at that point), and a lucky fly-and-super later I killed 3 players and a turret, and we managed to win the match :biggrin:

    I still need to hammer on my PS4 to get that PotG movie posted :lol:

    We met a lot of good teams and players; a murderous Tracer, someone who was an insane Genji (and he was low level, but apparently of the 25 hours played, 24 were Genji :eek: )

    Fun times! Many thanks everyone!

    It is my understanding than in Ye Olde Englande and other Commonwealth nations, a V sign with the palm facing towards you is comparable to "flipping the bird" as an insulting gesture. I would guess that D.Va is showing a V not in the common fashion for a Peace sign, with the palm and fingers facing away from the signer, but instead facing towards her, in her own direction. Undoubtedly this is meant to be a lazy usage of the Peace sign, but in certain nations could likely be misconstrued.

    So I read today that Torb's turret is getting a well earned nerf on consoles in the form of a 30% damage reduction. This should help fix the fact that on defense he's super broken but only if it also leads to an average increase in time that he build's his ult.

    you're seeing the back of her hand because she's on her back with her head toward you. Her wrist is twisted the right way, she just has her hand on her horizontal so that it's upright, and the camera is effectively "behind" her.

    Nails towards the other person is the insult, no matter which way your body is.

    I'm not complaining, I welcome any opportunity to stick 2 fingers up at everyone.

    My PSN is based on a fucking efed I was in at the time, I would pay to change it. And without the correct capitalization (it should be IWAshcroft), I often get people thinking it says either I wash croft, or I was h croft.

    Oh pubs. If you hear a tire and see me backpedaling like crazy from the enemy team, don't try to fly in and heal me. RIP Mercy that got a tire to the face.

    Three greys and a blue as per usual, but I did get Zarya's bear wrestling skin, so I'll take that as a positive.

    Tried to scare a Junkrat into detonating early against my Zarya. Got his tire down to 25% health but he was too smart to fall for it.

    Luckily my team picked up the rest.

    I just had a game where 3 people picked Mei as soon as the pick screen opened, so of course I did too, as did 5th person. The other person, chose 76, which somehow made it funny.

    The round was chaos. After we spent the entire minute in the spawn building walls around the 76, it was just non stop walls everywhere.

    I love how confidently Zarya can just deal with the tire.

    Ults aren't as important as having a good team comp. If I'm over 60% I'll wait to change, depending on the ult.

    I am thoroughly confused by people who insist on playing Torbjorn on attack. Not saying you can't, I've seen it work but it required a lot of communication. That said, if we're trying to push the payload and I've seen the same Torb body just fly across the screen, maybe consider switching?

    I had a bunch of games last night where the other team would repeatedly pop ults just to kill me. Like, drive the tire around everyone else to pick me off by myself, or in one case send the tire to the *spawn* to off me before I returned.

    Felt good to be worth that much overkill I guess?

    After about 30 levels of 1 rare, 3 common crates, I finally got another legendary. Bonus, it had legendary currency and a rare skin with it! Ifrit for Zen, Chrysanthemum for Mei, a Tracer spray and 500 coins. Nice!

    Encountered that as a defense Reinhardt. So intimidating.
