    Neither of those points are wrong, though. Taunts are a ridiculous mechanic for PvP with time to kills of under like three seconds, and tanks as they are right now are too good at solo killing DPS. And I say that as a tank player.

    I don't disagree.

    Oh, I missed the "wouldn't be wrong" clause, my b

    So I picked this up for Xbox a while ago and just started playing more regularly now. Finally reached level 25 and did my placement matches and I ended up in pretty much on the border of Gold/Plat. Because of work, school and family I can only play with my friends a couple nights a week, if that. If anyone here is interested in grouping up on Xbox, I'd be happy to team up and avoid solo queue, either QP or Comp.

    I prefer playing Zen or Orisa, but I'll pick up 76, McCree or Bastion if those two are already taken. I'd also like the chance to learn some of the other characters, but they seem so situational that I've been leaving them to more experienced players.

    I was never going to be an Ana main because I can't aim, but man it sucks playing Ana in QP with Brigitte in every game. So much shield and dive and armor

    I don't disagree. I mean, except that tanks are already too good at killing dps. D.Va might still need some minor retuning, sure.

    I might be interested in a tank whose tanking skill is like the old Titanfall reflective-shield-hand thing. The one that catches all shots for a limited time then sends them back out in a burst later. It's a little close to Genji's deflect and Zarya's bubble mecehanics but eh, if it makes for a new fun tank then I'm down with some design overlap.

    That kind of ability might work well for the Junker Queen. Magnets and scrapyards go hand-in-hand.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    The way you do "taunt" in a PvP game is to punish the enemy team for ignoring the tank. There are a number of ways to do that which you see in Overwatch - either because they do solid damage, have powerful CC, or they have the means to protect their teammates. Shooting a tank first should be the right thing to do - there's no need for a mechanic that takes the enemy team's choices away.

    Huh, I figured Doomfist was bald. I guess he actually just shaves his head. Or maybe he just went bald as he got older.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    Let's speculate, who else is getting a skin?! I think we're due for eight and know four already (Moira, Reaper, Doomfist, Hanzo)

    I figure it'll lean towards Overwatch/Blackwatch/Talon adjacent characters who didn't get one last year, and there really aren't a lot of those left.

    Winston seems super due for a skin (it's been over a year since he got one!)

    Maybe Sombra?

    She doesn't really have a Talon specific skin yet does she?

    Doomfist's hair has no texture, hope they fix that. Looks fine, otherwise.

    Best random sombra qp moment today. Defending volskya point B, genji fleeng symmetra jumps off right side, intending to dash across gap to our back lines. I hack him just as he jumps over edge. Genji falls to his death. I laugh, and laugh, and laugh...

    Talon Sombra has lego hair, I'm just gonna stick to the summer style.

    Talon Doomfist looks good, and they didn't keep him in the left nipple club.

    Why did they give Mei of all people a Summer Games shirt, in the wrong event no less? I guess it's meant to be ironic?

    What can I say

    Some days I'm just on it

    Bout to climb up to 1700. The game placed me at 1200.

    I have a good feeling I'll be gold by the end of this season
