Watchpoint Radio #92: New Skins, Who Dis?

January 24th, 2018

Deathblow from the High Noon Podcast joins us this week to discuss the long-awaited Cosmetic update, Blizzard World, and more!

Cosmetic Update

The long-awaited cosmetic update finally arrived and ended up surprising Jaa with extra skins he did not expect. Five new emotes, five new epic skins, 12 new legendary skins, and four new highlight intros are now available PERMANENTLY for all Overwatch players to get in loot boxes.

Blizzard World

Along with the cosmetic update, Blizzard World also arrived. Players are still getting used to all of the pathways, and Blizzard continues to add complexity to their maps.

xQc Suspended

xQc has been suspended after some unsportsmanlike behavior on Twitch. Jaa, Bob, and Deathblow discuss what this means for xQc, and also, how Overwatch League players need to proceed going forward.
