I started playing Overwatch again after a break of about a month. working on my placement games. So far the ones where my team has won have been when i've been Mercy. I even got a play of the game and kudos from teammates for a clutch rez in one of the games.

Nice! I like starting my placements later in the season. I hate feeling forced to play comp every day to avoid SR decay.

If you subscribe to Amazon Prime (and therefore Twitch Prime!), they'll give you a free loot box with one guaranteed legendary, along with 5 regular boxes in August and October.

Well, that's unexpected! A full-on deathmatch mode is up on the PTR.

Like free for all? Tickets per team? One life? What style?

Excerpts from the announcement on Kotaku:

The core mode will be a free-for-all deathmatch where eight players face-off in a battle presumably to determine whose ‘ships are canon. All you’ve gotta worry about is eliminations. In an interesting wrinkle, you don’t have to come in first to earn a “win” toward your weekly allotment of Arcade loot boxes. Rather, you’ve just gotta be in the top half of players in a match.
Deathmatch will use a series of modified versions of maps that are already in the game as well as a brand new one: Chateau Guillard. It’s a fitting (?) place to host a deathmatch, because it used to be Widowmaker’s home before her husband kicked the bucket. We’ll get to learn more about her backstory while defiling any remaining good memories she had of the place with even more bloodshed. Fun!
There’ll also be a team deathmatch option where two teams of six rush to get 30 kills. Kaplan said Mercy’s resurrects will take away kill credits from the other team, which sounds heinously frustrating and basically makes Mercy a required pick.
Also, the second round of Loot Boxes from Twitch Prime started today. 5 free loot boxes!

Did everyone see the video talking about the upcoming changes to Mercy? As a Mercy main I am kind of excited.

The skins for the Overwatch League are up now. If you login soon-ish, you’ll get 100 tokens — enough to buy a skin for the character/team of your choice. These skins don’t show up in loot boxes.

Nice! I'll have to check it out.

I wonder how difficult it will be to get tickets to the live games; just in case i'm in the area for work

Re: Overwatch from Blizzard (May for PC, Xbox One & PS4)

I watched some of the live league games on saturday; the broadcast was well done.
I then played some Overwatch; did my 10 games for competitive ranking; half of them on a team with my daughter and her boyfriend. I got 6 wins, 4 loses and was ranked at 986, they got like 4 or 5 wins and got ranked at 1700 and 1900, so they laughed at me since they thought i was rank 1986 instead of just 986. I was racking up the gold metals playing Diva. the new rockets are a nice addition

New patch with a new limited time team PvE event. The previous 2 event modes are also available (I had missed the 2nd one with Reaper's origin).

I enjoyed the event last night. I like that Mercy was finally in a cut scene/cinematic.

I am sort of disappointed in the skins and such.

Re: Overwatch from Blizzard (May for PC, Xbox One & PS4)

is there a good strat for playing as Hammond (hamster ball tank)? I've tried him out but have always done terrible. At best, i'm a distraction. I cant seem to kill anyone when i tether and roll around. I rarely can get the ground pound move to work. whenever i transform out of ball form to shoot at someone, i die real quick.

I have been having a blast playing as Brigette and Moira. Also fun playing as Ashe.
