    what makes a character good at anti-dive
    1. takes away mobility - some sort of root instead of a full stun, something like junks trap but have it be AE, her stun is really powerful and in many cases puts her in a better position than mccree. also allows a team to focus something down fast.
    2. reposition - knockback like a boop or her flail help take someone away from helping but get her boop does a decent chunk of damage. I'd say get rid of the damage on it and maybe if someone hits a wall, that could cause damage but the hit itself shouldn't maybe?
    3. protection - her ae healing in a radius really helps against the dive and that can she move a short distance quickly means she can get to a teammate fast. maybe she shouldn't self heal like ana can only self heal with the nade.

    so yeah, she's strong, we all agree right?

    Brig's real power against dive is actually Rally. Giving armor to your whole team when half of dive characters get completely fucked by armor is super strong.

    People complain about Brig because they can't fucking stand when a healer can kill them. They bitched about Moira too. What baffles me is how no one seems to understand how to counter her. I can't count how many games I play in comp where towards the end they enemy has a Brig to counter mine. Spoiler alert PLAY PHARAH YOU IDIOTS. Or at least Junkrat. Or or Hanzo, the actual strongest character in the game right now.

    Edit: Also pro tip. DON"T STAND NEXT TO HER. Literally everyone else has guns, shoot her outside her range, and the only person who doesn't have a gun, does a fuckload more damage than she does.

    Hell, even Zarya with at least a little energy can make a Brig fall back, just plop some right-clicks slightly to her side and watch the splash damage go "lol what shield"

    They stopped doing the Chrome/Blue/Carbon fiber skins because they're not going to entice anyone besides completionists to buy a digital pass to Blizzcon. If they have rad as hell skins that you can only get by buying the passes a lot more people will do so. It's a marketing move.

    And Zarya with medium energy can also just hold down LMB and kill her shield nigh-instantly. The beam is super high DPS when you can't miss.

    I actually really liked the Bastion one (couldn't get it, but wish I had). The Winston one wasn't great, admittedly, but there's a handful of other characters I think would look really good with Blizzard skins (for lack of a better name). Genji would be one of them, but he basically already has it as one of his epic quality skins.

    But yeah, $40 is way too much for any skin. Personally speaking, $10 is the highest I'd go, but I feel like skins shouldn't go above $5 unless it also comes with unique animations, ability special effects, and/or voice overs.

    Says $69.95 for me, though I’m not sure if that’s already converted to Australian.

    Way too high just to get a skin. I’m not big enough into Blizzard stuff to get more out of the ticket than the skin.

    Oddly, my favorite part of Busan is the point where walls come up periodically. I like evolving terrain I guess?

    I'm not convinced brig is over-powered, I think dive heroes got used to feeling like they could dominate healers on the back line more or less at will, and now that's not necessarily a given so it feels like injustice. Was less of a given when moira got added, and then outright zoned with brig. The quarterbacks needed a linebacker (I guess tanks would be the linebackers, defensive end? No Hanzo, you were not the quarterback...)! You'll get maced in the face and you'll like it. And like someone mentioned, she's extremely vulnerable from range by a number of characters. I don't follow the meta game with any sort of seriousness though, so .... Idk, Like any character she counters some and is countered by other picks. Don't expect to have a great game against your hard counter?

    *Moira is clearly the quarterback, don't @ me.

    The issue isn't that Brig is too good against dive, it's that she's too good against literally everyone if she gets within ten feet of you. A reaper that gets the drop on you you can respond to because he still has to space to land his shots and has a generous hitbox, Brig can just stand inside your model and hold down LMB as you die a slow and embarrassing death.

    Yeah I just saw they added a $10 "because we can" tax this year so the virtual ticket will be $50US this year. For you it's probably adjusting for region.

    How would you quantify that though? She's brutal at close range 1 on 1 yes, but I've killed many an over-extending brig and been killed myself going too aggressively after someone. With her shield down she's as vulnerable to headshots as anyone. That said, I wouldn't cry if they toned her down somehow, so long as she didn't suddenly feel like a free pick to a dps.

    If I could change one thing, make her swing an actual arc so you need space properly to hit people with it and can't just bunnyhop on top of their head like a maniac without losing DPS.

    so like a minimum range where she does no damage? That would be interesting.

    My one change would be one of either: nerfing her own self heal; or increasing the cd and/or cast time of repair pack.

    The only remaining problem I find with Brig is you can't (efficiently) kill her and you can't ignore her.

    So you can make her a little easier to kill in the scenarios where she's relying on her shield, her self heal and her cds coming back. In other words, make her easier to kill in those scenarios where she's just stalling and most any other hero in the game would have been dead long ago.

    OR, you just nerf the repair pack. Because for all the talk about Brig being a bad healer, she has a unique healing ability unlike anything in the game except Ana. That hero who just now re-entered the meta because she just got a second source of burst healing. Funny that. But Ana's burst healing sources have punishable cooldowns. Brig's does not. 6 seconds just isn't long enough to say "repair pack on cd" and others to follow-up on the work you did forcing it out. If anything, using your valuable cds just to be nixed by RP is probably a net win for the Brig, not you. And the cast time is so fast it requires almost no prediction and a pretty damn average reaction time to get off. If you nerfed the cd or the cast time, at least all those heroes whose best option was "just stay away from her" could get work done elsewhere, y'know?

    Well, my suggestion is meant to make her more efficient to kill because it makes it possible (if still difficult) to headshot her when she's hitting you. While Armor Pack is a strong ability it's not really part of what makes her strong in the comps she's in, so nerfing it doesn't address the overarching issues. If like Armor Packing a Genji twice during Dragon Blade was a top strat I could see it, but afaik that's not really the case.

    My first thought goes to a Vietnam standby like Long Tall Sally, but what was the war soundtrack to the omnic crisis? We may never know, but I like to think modern roots-folk, making it retro by the time the war actually happened - thus, it would be One Man's Shame by William Elliott Whitmore.

    In reality, they would not duet. Soldier would sing Born In The USA and Reaper would sing Crawling by Linkin Park.

    (Searches for an image I know I've seen of Reaper singing Karaoke... I'm not at home on my laptop and don't have access to my art archive... well, that woulda' been funny anyway... I'mma' just post this.)

    Comp game. Enemy team is 5 silvers and a bronze. Our team is 5 silvers and a gold, the gold being a 2 man with another silver. 2 whole tiers up? This should be a cakewalk, right?

    The 2 man switches heroes every single death, like they're playing random. Also like random, it wasn't to fill any needed role, just random. Constant spamming voice lines the entire match. Half a dozen times I caught them just sitting out of spawn facing each other trying to teabag the other. Enemy team has 4 people capping the first point, and the 2 of them are sitting at the enemy spawn not even trying to come back to the point.

    We lost. I end up losing thirty-two SR. The most I've ever won from a win is 28, with 20-24 being the average.

    It's not my favorite activity to read about how the matchmaking system works ;_;

    Someone's trying to throw their way down to bronze I guess. That's brutal - I hope you reported.

    I worry that my brother and I might get some hate from our teams. I've got the plat badge and he's in silver, so we always end up with a team of golds who probably expect me to hard carry, or expect him to scuttle our chances (he's not bad at all - he gets a ton of cards and PotGs, he just gets tunnel vision a lot).

    I mean, on a very good day I can carry, but I can't hard carry an entire game, you still need to stay alive and help get picks and get on the point!

    at the bottom of this press release:
    The in-game items for Overwatch, StarCraft II, and StarCraft: Remastered will also be available separately in 2019—further details will be announced at a later date.

    Thanks Papa Jeff. I really didn't want to have to jump through hoops for that DH skin, because it looks rad.

    I really wish they'd have some kind of "super report" feature, or "this person belongs at least one league lower" report feature.

    You only get one of them per 1-3 days so you can't use them lightly, but the receiver gets much closer scrutiny when they get one.

    So, Jeff Kaplan says that Pharah changes might hit the PTR soon: https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/are-we-going-to-see-any-pharah-changes-soon/209275/63

    I've got nothing for a Department of Bad Ideas on this, but I kind of feel like something's going to happen with Concussive Blast. It has its uses, sure, but I've never been able to get the hang of dropping people off ledges with it, and 12 seconds for one slightly more confident rocket shot (because enemies who have been booped have a more predictable trajectory) is kind of underwhelming. Nor does it really function as a good way of scattering the enemy team.

    Possibly up the kickback on the Concussive Blast and reduce the air-drag on affected targets for a bit, such that, whether it's the enemy or Pharah that it affects, you get more movement out of it?

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.
