Summer Games 2017 Skin-Specific Voice Lines


hammeh_1

Overwatch has new skin-specific voice lines for Summer Games 2017 skins! Grillmaster 76, Cricket Junkrat have a bunch of new lines, with a few sounds for Tulum Sombra and Lifeguard Mccree. Check them out with explanation here!

Grillmaster 76, Tulum Sombra and Cricket Junkrat all have some new voicework! Check it out here – timecodes to skip to just the voicework of the heroes. I try to explain the Cricket references, which are very specific….good luck and hope they make some kinds of sense. It’s different types of “bowling” delivery mostly!

What are your favourite lines? Think of any that Mercy, McCree and the other heroes with new skins should have? Do let me know in the comments! – Hammeh – Overwatch (FailCraft)

Grillmaster 76 – 0:28 | Cricket Junkrat – 2:24 | Cricket references in voicelines – 3:31 | Tulum Sombra – 5:41

Hammeh: Ban Wave. Toxic Players Beware. Reporting Changes & More.


toxic_players_harassment

Overwatch throwers, toxic players and griefers, beware – a suspension wave is in progress, with changes to the reporting system announced too! Will this help the current state of Competitive matches? News, analysis and a quick channel update here!

toxic_undead_by_semlimitOverwatch changes requested by the community incoming! With people on Reddit and social media reporting that a lot of 1 day suspensions have been fired out, Blizzard announced they are taking immediate action against accounts with proven toxic behaviour, with more to come, including changes to the reporting system! I go through the changes, explain why they’ve probably been made and how they’ll work, and look at how we can help improve things too – it won’t be an immediate fix!

Bluepost: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overw…

Also, a quick channel update on video release plans/schedule for the future, from next week. Do you think these changes will help? Let me know if your competitive experience is better over the next few days, or how it’s been the last few days in the comments!

2:15 – Scaling Competitive Season Bans for toxicity
3:40 – Notifications when action taken on one of your reports.
4:56 – Report people properly, for valid reasons!

Your Overwatch: Roadhog Saved! Torbjörn Counter Dive Guide.


roadhog_potg_mud_skin

Discussions, guides and videos made by Your Overwatch

Roadhog Saved

Roadhog has struggled to fit into the mobility meta with his incredible damage reduced however, Geoff and the Overwatch team have something exciting in store for Overwatch Gameplay!

The ability to move at full speed while using “Take a Breather” in its own right allows for a lot of flexibility and character flow, but the -50% to incoming damage while doing so makes shooting Roadhog during the animation a waste of time in many situations.

Blizzard is pushing Roadhog into being a very brawl-y hero, but the question is; is this good enough? Winston Dva blocks so much damage by itself, will Roadhog being very tanky be enough to make an impact in the meta? Either way, it’s difficult to find major impact on Roadhogs hook (damage aside) thanks to Defense Matrix being so good, but at least in matchmaking where the coordination and teamplay isn’t as tight as the pros, this will make Hog a worthwhile pick. Let’s hope so! [Bluepost]
