    I was wondering why they were pushing Hanbin. I didn't even think about hiding D.va's footstep sounds. That's incredible.

    oh sure, that's just what the enemy team would expect

    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.

    I am on board with like, most of this

    Ok to be fair I don't really care about Bastion, and I'm not sure that Ana or Mercy needed changes...but I am on board with Moira nerfs and Zenyatta buffs.

    My new favorite thing in Mystery Heroes is people being accused of using aimbots. In Mystery Heroes. Well, it happened to me yesterday, because of this:

    I knew the Widow was there because they had eliminated me as Ana and Brigitte previously. I wish I knew that replays don't capture chat, because it was pretty silly.

    EDIT: The Widow was camping. . . do the kids still say "camping"?

    I am stunned that Ana got nerfed, but the nerf wasn't to her nade, which is easily the strongest part of her kit and might be the best ability in the game

    i honestly don't think her nade really needs any nerfing. it's only the best ability when you use it perfectly, it's mostly average in most people's hands, and the super-long cooldown means you already have to be smart about using it

    it's an ability that rewards skillful play, it feels really satisfying when you use it well, it's fun to watch other people use it well (a rarity among supports), and it doesn't really feel cheap when you're on the other side of it (compared to say lamp or orb). it's exactly the kind of ability I think they should leave alone unless it's clearly and egregiously broken (which I don't think nade is)

    You don't need to use it perfectly, splashing it on a wall near the enemy frontlne will win your team a fight.

    depending on a whole slew of factors, sure. you could also misjudge just a little bit and have it do nothing.

    But fer real yes ana nade is one of the best abilities in the game and has fight-winning potential, but it also has a good amount of pretty simple counterplay and it's a key part of her kit

    I saw a lot of people eager to jump back on the hype train when they beat Shanghai and I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt against the completely unpredictable Chengdu Hunters

    but no. they are just bad. they're about as coordinated as my ladder games where nobody's in team chat

    Mayhem vs. Justice

    Something is up and Jake appears to be sucking the bandwidth of the partner caster as ZP and Uber both could not cast without significant lag. Jake has. not. stopped. talking. and Sideshow/Bren on a companion stream are laughing their asses off.

    BOS vs. LAG
    Sideshow bet their chat 20 gifted subs that Boston would lose. Having gifted the subs, Sideshow is now in the midst of a Level 6 hype scam train as chat is just dumping bits and subs.

    Edit: 120 subs and 6000 bits lollllllllll
