We know how much you all love Mei

Long awaited Hanzo skin seen in comics - Apparently this skin? Might not look exactly like this. | Another image
Roadhog and Rat legendary skins
Black Forest Winter version. Seasonal versions of Hanamura and King's Row will also be returning.
Snowball offensive on Ecopoint and Black Forest
Mei's Yeti Hunt - a 1v5 boss game mode. 5 Mei players vs 1 Winston player. Winston can pick up meat(power ups) that give him primal rage around the map. Once Winston is in primal rage the Meis just have to escape. Mei has a special ice trap ability in this mode along with her other normal abilities.

Map is Nepal Village.


Edit: 5 Meis instead of 6.

Thanks to /u/YhCHKN for linking the Hanzo image. It's a photoshop so it may not look exactly like that.

"If he gets enough meat" Well theres fuel for the next Dinoflask video

Legendary skins for the junkers you say?

Custom game boss fight is now an official game mode. God bless Edit: Does this mean official hide-and-seek event with custom map soonTM?

I know a lot of you are thinking it sounds kinda silly and kinda ridiculous, and well, I'm here to tell you it absolutely is.

Jeff you are a god.

5 Meis vs 1 Winston actually. It straight up sounds like Evolve.

sounds like your worst nightmare in no limits.

No, that'd be six symmetras

Huh, could've sworn I was straight just a second ago...

She may be frustrating to play against, but like Tracer the character is pretty endearing. She's certainly one of my favorites as far as character and lore go.

Now Dinoflask can mention Counter Strike: Global Offensive in his videos.

Mei thicc as hell boi you know i love that fat ass

Game browser is just a place where the dev team can steal ideas take inspiration from.

If we get speedo Roadhog before speedo Reinhardt I will riot

Casual Hanzo confirmed. Reddit is about to explode.

"There's a lot coming"

It's definitely on purpose at this point.

Mei's Global... Ehm, Snowball Offensive

I see what you did there, Papa Jeff

Overwatch: Evolve

This one!

I love playing her but I'm terrible at her ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

5 Mei's vs 1 Yeti Winston?

Overwatch: Evolve

"surprise when you login to the game"

more like when i open reddit and see a post with leaks coming from facebook ads

Thanks! ¯_(ツ)_/¯\

Still waiting on Mei's ass balancing 6 Roadhogs

Im pretty sure what I am

What is the Hanzo skin he is talking about?

EDIT: As everybody who replied has pointed out, its probably this one.

Sure but like Boss fight was the idea they handed to us in the announcement dev video.

Not just any role queue: role queue with a 1:5 slot ratio. Frankly, if you wanted to test if/how well role queue works in an environment with unequal role distribution (say, a general preference for certain heroes), this is a brilliant way to do it.

Role queue in the event, intresting

tfw they only give you one take to do the video

So is my penis- I mean, oh cool Junkrat skin! cough

But at the same time, SAXTON HAAAAAALE

six torbjorns* 6 Winstons would destroy them or Pharahs.

Endearing? She ate all those other dead scientists’ bodies. She’s straight up Jeffrey Dahmer.

/sub/watchmeidie

He's a big guy

For you.

My lord that's enough to make me a Hanzo main

dinoflask won't even have to change anything about that one.

Inb4 Overwatch goes F2P

HIJFTOT.

THOT JIF.

Message decoded.

I thought the balance team forgot Mei existed and didn't even watch her cinematic, but now that Jeff mentioned it, I'm sure they care deeply about her. <:)

haHAA kill me

CS:SNOW

Only now did I realize why they were wearing summer clothes.

I mean, I thought it was pretty obvious he was joking...

So many people tried to be the first to post this on Reddit, kudos to you buddy. Merry Christmas Everyone :)

Anecdote: Every time I play as one of the 6 Syms, we just gang up on a Winston and easily melt them one by one.

That skin better have Adidas Boosts or Yeezys

I know your post was mostly in jest, but for the record, any kind of armorless Rein skin would be drastically smaller in silhouette and hitbox than his armored skins. He's a big guy, but not nearly as big as his armor suit.

Oh my... I need a moment.

She's my most player hero, and by far my best. Unfortunately her icicle shot has ruined my aim with any other hero due to the delay. Guess I have to keep annoying everyone.

Last year comic Hanzo skin confirmed!!!

It's not really impressive that a 6 player train would win if you can isolate targets. But if all six Winstons simply group up and jump on you at once, the only way you win that fight is if a couple of them have a stroke midway through. Six tesla guns are going to fucking evaporate a team of Syms.

Christmas here in Australia & NZ is in summer, so these are accurate.

SAXTON HALE

>:(

Happy one year anniversary of Tracer being gay!

"everybody loves"

"snowball"

You dropped this \

Username checks out.

Yeah it feels like they already have the QP ratio of tanks/supports to DPS all figured out too!

No, my worst nightmare is Rein, Orisa, Bastion, Torb, Symmetra, Mercy.

FUCK THAT COMP. I feel my entire team (me included) just runs in there and dies)

Likely the Casual Hanzo from last years Christmas Comic Pg. 10

Holy shit.

Translation to English Torr foot Xun Yi in ¨Ò ¨Ò Nianshupianpangfang

That kid's face is hilarious

The Hanzo skin we saw in the comic last year.

THEY FUCKING DID IT.

THE ABSOLUTE FUCKING MADMEN.

Or the "SEX IF GIRL HITS U SHE IS UR GF [18+ TURN ON MIC]" event

In the jungle update video Saxton Hale was hunting a Yeti...coincidence?

Pretty sure it was a joke too...Jeff loves this kind of deadpan trolling.

OMG PLS

This one!

Maybe, like, WAYYYY down the road

Real Overwatch veterans know Mei > Widow when it comes to booty

A mix between Evolve and Saxton Hale, I already played some custom games of the genre in Overwatch and it's pretty fun, I just hope the meat thing and mei special ability will be added to custom game options.

Hipster Hanzo is my Cultist Zenyatta for this event - the one skin I absolutely must have at any cost.

Only took Starcraft II 7 years.

MEI-RRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Are we gonna get a short where Reinhardt uses tracer as a hammer to fight winston?

They literally admitted to this when they made the browser. Definitely not a bad thing.

If there is a trend of comic skins, some of you might hate me for this, but I hope we get this skin for Tracer.

Would fit her perfectly.

Right!? I immediately thought, this might be a small, early build of what might be adapted into comp. Holy fuck I'm excited if it's true. (Inb4 big if true)

Even if the Syms have 650 health each?

Yes. Six Winston left clicks will be doing 300 damage a second to everyone in range three targets at a time, and Sym has no escape. If any of them have ult that’s an extra 1000 health they can pop if you get them low, and now they can also disrupt and split your Sym army, but this is already overkill. If you can win in this situation I’d love to see it.

Edit: I forgot the three player limit. With shields the Syms could live about 4.333 seconds (repeating of course) if they were grouped. I still favor the monkeys by a mile here

Edit again: someone who has friends should test the Winston gun thing

Just have him wear the speedo on top of his armor. Problem solved!

Oh that’s daddy

People hate having Sym on attack (I get it) but this combo would get wrecked by her. All she needs to do is send her little balls towards the turret. The Torb would have to spend his whole time healing turret/dodging balls and any Rein/Orisa that tries to keep up their shields in front of it would have to dodge them too. Sym would get Shield Gen pretty quick on that comp and after it's down the team just needs to dive in.

Sombra would also wreck this comp come to think of it. One EMP + any hard hitting ult (Tire, DVA, Sights, Deadeye, Die Die Die) would be GG.

I am excited for Evolve, er... Mei's Yeti Hunt

If their skins aren't summer themed, there will be a riot.

Jeff Kaplan when confirming the reflections hanzo skin: "I'm gonna give the gays everything they want"

hype beast hanzo

God damnit, man. I'm not even safe in my nerd subs

IactuallydoloveMeiunironically

WELCOME, TO BLIZZARD PARK!

run "begone_thot.exe"

Omg.... heeeeey daddy.

Substantial if substantiated.

Reflections Hanzo!

God I want to fletch his shaft. I mean he's got a lot in that quiver of his.

Hanzo Reflection skins confirmed. Junkrat and Roadhog confirmed to have legendary skins too. Mei also seems to have one based on the introduction of the video and the promotional video on Twitter.

EDIT: OOPS. My bad. The Mei skin is already a base skin. They were just using it to promote the new Yeti hunt game mode. Thanks to u/JJFreshMemes

vvvvvvVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV

MEI'S YETI HUNT! THIS WILL BE SO COOL!!

When he said that I laughed and then I realised he wasn't joking. I think Jeff has gone insane.

his clothes were a bit plain for an overwatch skin, I'm excited to see how they jazz it up a little bit

Good bait.

Mei, could work.
