Black Forest Map Lore & Easter Eggs

Just how badly hit was Germany by the Crisis? How is it faring now?

Low Mana Gaming: The most atmospheric map in the game and one with a greater feeling of both peace and sadness than any other, the Black Forest arena map may be light on lore compared to Castillo and Necropolis, but what it does say is well worth listening to.

New Cruiser D.va, Sentai Genji Voice Lines And Hero Interactions


voicelines_lore_interactions

As Overwatch Anniversary has launched, with new skins and some new voicelines.

Hammeh – Overwatch (FailCraft): These are in the Overwatch client, including new lines for Cruiser D.va, Sentai Genji, a new Pharah interaction, more kill lines, and some chilling Omnic / Null Sector lines that never got used in Uprising! I’m going through the files more, there will be more where this came from, but here’s a taster.

As always, let me know what you think of the lines, and check the playlists for more of these (much longer, too, including hero lore and interactions!) if you enjoy!

New Hero “On the Horizon” (Jeff Kaplan Confirmed)

So the next hero is on the Moon? Interesting!

“In a recent live stream, Jeff Kaplan has confirmed that the next Overwatch hero is just “on the horizon”. Interpret that as you will. Currently, the biggest leaks have yet to be confirmed.”

3v3 Ranked Mode? Loot Box Backlash

“In today’s news roundup we report on recent forum posts by Jeff Kaplan in pertains to making the new 3v3 elimination mode into a competitive game type.

The problem of MMR in quickplay making games too hard, toxicity and the reporting function as well as the new Anniversary Event Loot Boxes which have caused a bit of a backlash for those trying to enjoy Overwatch Gameplay.

This recent event has sported some of the most exciting skins, but also the downside that they’re all legendary and cost 3000 credits, making collecting them as well as the 24 dance emotes (750 per) quite an expensive affair. Are the loot box items fairly priced for this event? Let us know what you think and don’t forget to leave a rating.”

Overwatch Anniversary Broken Loot Boxes

“Overwatch Anniversary is a great event, but..

It’s also the only event to date to only feature legendary skins (costing 3000 credits), this makes getting duplicates feel even more terrible. Dance emotes should be none event specific too.”

Necropolis Map Lore & Easter Eggs


necropolis_3v3_map_environment

Overwatch Lore runs deep in Necropolis – secret base of Ana Amari and Soldier 76 at this point in Overwatch Lore timeline!

Hammeh – Overwatch (FailCraft): In Overwatch Lore Tours, I run through Necropolis’ lore, history and easter eggs, then speculate what the rest of its story might be!

Necropolis is a map rich with details and lore explaining where Ana may have been recently, where Soldier 76 is right now, and what they might be up to next!

Why is Reaper going all these places, and what has he been doing? Where will Ana and Soldier head next? Is Morrison a bit of a drunk now? So many questions!

What do you think of Necropolis, map lore and story wise?
