Watchpoint Radio #56: No News, but New Host!

No news from Blizzard regarding an anniversary event. Good thing we have XBox to leak info on the anniversary loot boxes! The Overwatch community has been pretty quiet in general, so it’s a pretty good time to bring on our new host: BlazzinBob (Bob Schissler)! Bob plays a ton of Overwatch — pretty much every night of the week. His main is Diamond level, so he’ll definitely bring a different perspective that the show has been missing.

Since this week has been pretty news dry we tackle a few other topics. We talk about our hopes for Season 5 as Season 4 comes to a close. We discuss a few interesting points from the Michael Chu AMA.

We also got some stats from the Uprising event that leaves Jaa a bit disappointed in the community. Finally, we open up a community discussion on whether or not heroes should have individual levels.

All that and more on this week’s Watchpoint Radio.
