D.Va is better at skirmishing and attacking (as is Road Hog) but I feel like a Mercy would rather stick with an Orisa than a Hog and maybe even a D.Va.
I disagree to me Reinhardt, Zarya and Hog are the best tanks in the game and if the player that it using anyone of those heroes is really good they can carry a whole team and Winston isn't too far behind.

Ana is awesome as long as you can land your shots and boost the right hero at the right time..... No pressure. Lol

After more time I agree with you. I actually forgot Zarya. I still do way better with Hog than I ever even came close to with Orissa. The shine on her newness has worn off a little and I feel like she is solid but not focused enough to really take a top spot.

That being said, I am also not that terribly good of a player. I know Lucio is a top tier pick yet I play him like he has a nerf gun.

Lucio is my main and favorite hero. The key to getting damage in with Lucio is his speed. On an average quick play game I can get anywhere from 5K-8K damage with him and if anyone has played him that is a lot for Lucio.

Lately I've been doing and experiment with friends we pick the worst comp and use me to speed past the choke point and believe it or not we get it like 70% of the time it's hilarious to see a hanzo, symettra, Lucio, Orissa, torb and widow successfully perform a dive comp.

Soooooo, with the new Overwatch Omnic Crisis comic you see Mercy in a cool blue Overwatch outfit.

Any chance this will be a sweet skin in this event?

The new horde mode is fun. Only played through it once but got a win without too much trouble. Didn't get all that high a rating, though.

It looks like it's a way to get loot boxes insanely fast. You get a box for every win, another box for every 3 wins, and you get tons of XP to boot.

Nothing good in the 3 loot boxes from today, but looking forward to this:

Yeah, I am enjoying the horde mode. Played it with the four base characters. Now working on the 8 different characters for that achievement.

The first box I opened though I got that D.Va selfie intro. I was pretty stoked.

So, the 4 character achievement is by playing it in the 'regular' mode where you have 4 characters to choose from: gotta successfully complete the mission with each of the 4. The 8 character achievement is in the mode where you have all 24 characters to choose from: gotta successfully complete the mission with any 8 of the 24.

Play the Uprising unlimited game. Succeed as 8 different characters that aren't the four from the main plalist (Rein, Mercy, Torb, Tracer).

I believe so. But some of the spray unlocking has been weird in Overwatch. Like I got one of the Junkrat achievements that was supposed to unlock a spray but the spray never unlocked. (I think it was that way).

Finished the All heroes mode on expert. Now need to do it in regular mode and then go for Legendary.

I also found a glitch. When you are defending the payload as the timer hits around 30 seconds or anytime before the payload stats moving have someone run to the other side where the payload blows up. There is a black square area and if you stand in it you can have your team walk the payload all the way uncontested.

The rage-quitters on Uprising are pretty insufferable. I wish there were a penalty to discourage people from quitting mid-match or at least a way to bring in a substitute.
