Watchpoint Radio #87: Sending the Wrong Message
New changes on the PTR and the debate about one-tricking continues, and Blizzard might be sending the wrong message....
It’s a new week in Overwatch and a lot is happening. Jaa and Bob are without Timeless this week, but we get the job done.
Winter Wonderland returns with seven new legendary skins, two new emotes, and one new highlight intro as well as a new arcade mode: Yetti Hunt. Both Bob and Jaa appear to not be too impressed.
Last week we got our first taste of Overwatch League. Bob was pretty excited about the action. While Jaa did enjoy the matches and casting of those matches, he wasn’t too thrilled about the commentary and analysis between matches.
Jaa proposes an idea that could bring more skins to Overwatch in collaboration with companies like Marvel & DC. Blizzard could partner with those companies, and make tokens the currency for those skins. Bob gives his thoughts on the matter.
In the latest patch, Blizzard included an update to the reporting system that will give players an in-game warning if they are reported. Also, if your report results in action, you will be notified in-game as well. Will this help with Toxicity?
Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Combat games.
IT System Engineer by day, avid gamer by night! Bob has been gaming his entire life and first started standing on a chair playing the arcade version of Super Mario Bros. Now he plays all kinds of games but focuses mainly on Overwatch.
Melty Blood gameplay, Granblue has a patch, SFV new skins, Nick All Stars Brawl is legit and a cake for going 0-2.
So much news to cover this week with the playoffs a week away! Let's dive in to this week's news and a playoff preview.
This week Melderon joins BlazzinBob and Melarina to talk about TBC Classic.
We finally get to starting Mass Effect 2 which starts with the death of Commander Shepard. WHAT???
