    harbgames went quite well, might just upload my whole POV of the matches tomorrow but here is a snippet for now

    Someone did a visual of the critboxes in the game, and some of them are interesting

    https://i.imgur.com/Z3gJnqr.jpg

    Ana is used as the base for 100%, so all other numbers are compared to her.

    Some things of note:

    Brig has the smallest crit box in the game
    Mei is only 1% bigger than Tracer, and has a smaller critbox
    Baptiste is the same size as Tracer and has a smaller critbox
    Mercy is smaller than Ana
    Sigma's toes are not shootable (sorry, foot people)
    D.Va's hitbox is very loose and if you aim low can miss her by quite a bit and still hit her

    Of course this doesn't tell the whole story, width is often more important than overall size (ahem), which is why Ana's narrowness in the torso make her feel so much harder to hit than Mercy, and these are only from the front, but I thought it was cool to see these anyway.

    I just save my tokens for the special stuff like the MVP skin.

    It's going to be a really long time before the next MVP and division skins, though.

    Yeah. I probably have a lot of tokens. I'd just never use the OWL skins.

    NYXL is going to get eliminated in the first round of playoffs and still act like they're a top tier team. Genuinely one of the worst matches of Overwatch ever

    It's not even choking, they're acting like it's beneath them to care about winning unless it's the actual grand finals. Needing to win games before that is a rude imposition

    No they're slacking now and it's going to result in them choking in the playoffs. They get the top team from the play ins and are gonna get wrecked.

    Except for the division skins, I just wait til they put out a new character, then buy a team skin to use until I unlock something I like better.

    I do not like that you queue for Quick Play before you pick your role

    I feel like that's just going to lead to people joining, seeing all the DPS or whatever role they want is already filled, and then quitting and then people backfilling get stuck with whatever role is available, whether or not they're good at it or want to play it

    Well it's roll around in the muck of arcade now as I enjoyed the odd games of all dps or heals in quick play it was fun. Being forced to pick your roll seems silly as I just showed up and picked whatever the team needed

    I haven’t played the live server yet but that’s not how it was on the PTR iirc. You chose QP, then your role choices, then go. If you don’t want to play not-dps then you don’t click those boxes.

    There’s no pre-queue choice at the moment, you click QP, it queues, you get a match and initially all the heroes are available until a role fills and then they grey out, or you pick a hero and the corresponding role

    They wanted to give a real test to the role queue sytem on the live servers because PTR is useless, but didn't want to risk breaking the whole game for everyone if it blew up.

    That's ok I guess but I feel like this intermediate system doesn't... Prove anything? Other than that insta lock dps is even more burdensome than we thought

    I think the beta is the mini competitive season that is using Role Queue. That gets them a player base larger than the PTR but smaller than Quick Play for a couple weeks

    Right, but the point is it's kinda of weird and worst-of-both-worlds to implement role lock in QP without also being able to choose your role beforehand. Maybe there's some need for them to do it this way, but as a player it sucks. I know I won't be touching QP at all till it gets implemented properly.

    I’m a little mixed about the changes to comp rewards.

    I like that each role only needs 5 matches to get a rating.
    I like that you can theoretically win more points at the end of the season.

    I dislike how it’s only theoretical that you can get more points.

    Under the old system, if I ended in Plat I got 500 points. Under the new system, if I get all 3 roles to Plat I get 600...
    if I get 2 Plat and 1 Gold I get 500 still (so essentially I had to play 5 extra matches for now extra reward)
    If I get 1 Plat, 1 Gold, and 1 Silver (which will likely be my Support/Tank/DPS ranks) I’d get 350... which is better-than-old-Gold but worse-than-old-Plat.
