Watchpoint Radio #57: Happy Anniversary, Heroes!
It’s been a full year since Overwatch has released, and while there has been some complaints, it’s mostly been an incredible year. The success of Overwatch certainly surprised Blizzard, and we hope that they double down on Overwatch going forward.
The Overwatch Anniversary event is here, though it’s not exactly what we thought it might be… Or at least what was leaked. No new hero, no new cinematic, no new game mode. However, we did get three new 3v3 maps and new rulesets for Elimination. Additionally, we got a bunch of legendary event skins. The problem being that ALL of the skins are legendary and there is no way you’re going to get them all or even most of them. Each character also gets a new dance emote!
We discuss the latest in character balance, and what it means going forward. We also discuss the upcoming Overwatch Contenders league — basically a minor league for Overwatch League. We then get into a discussion about a service Jaa didn’t know existed: SR Boosting. Bob did a little digging and talks his experience talking to their customer service. All that and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio!
