Hero of My Storm
Overwatch rewards in Nexus Challenge 2.0 are detailed, a netcode discussion prompted by another game, and the Overwatch event cycle....
Having an incredible and well executed event drop on us last week, it’s no surprise that there isn’t much news this week. Mike and Jaa cover the lastest PC meta report, confirming some of what we already know, but also unveiling some hidden bias in the community. Additionally some of the data shows that Blizzard really needs to work on making Defense heroes viable, and the answer isn’t by making changes to defense heroes. We also discuss a little Heroes of the Storm. There is an update on the way that includes new skins for Zarya, adding Genji as a hero, and also playing in an expanded Hanamura map.
We talk some recent bug fixes, and also some changes coming to Genji. Finally we get into our community discussion this week, asking if SR for season 5 should be reset.
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.
Mikey has been playing fighting games since he could reach the arcade stick and buttons. While not be ever being tournament ready he strives to do better. Loves pure action games and enjoying bonkers jrpgs. He's just you're average gaymer.
This week Exomatt is joined by Hertel3k as he talks about Ranked through the ages.
Street Fighter 6 reviews are in, Asuka arrives in Guilty Gear, Bryan Fury announced for Tekken and Combo Breaker results.
We're talking about (and spoiler warning for) non-MSQ 6.4 stuff: islands, fishing, raids, etc.
