Earlier this month six brilliant community artists remade our Overwatch Lunar New Year skins into these stunning cr… https://t.co/CCeiPZi6HK
None of the Overwatch heroes seem very waterproof though, do they…
Bastion is definitely waterproof enough to exist/walk along the seafloor though (the result of which is seen in the “Binary” comic).
The “medianoche” or midnight that Sombra refers to in that voiceline is actually the name given to the period of time in Mexico after the omnic crisis. The war had ravaged the country energy grid and infrastructure, and most of it was plunged in the darkness without powers for several years, hence the name midnight, and why Sombra used this quote in development since she uses EMP. It’s also why the energy company LumériCo plays such a big role in Mexico, since the basically rebuilt the country.
“Volvamos a la Medianoche” was a bit too long and a moutful, which is probably why they didn’t use it, which is a shame because I really like it. I like her referencing lore event, and it ties in into her “down with the man”, neutral chaotic attitude.
You pretty much hit it. When we were testing the two lines, we felt that “Apagando las luces” worked a little better as an ult line compared to the other. Would have loved to keep the story reference in, but ultimately (groan) it lives on as a voice line.
Respawn did such a good job with the Ping System in Apex Legends. It works really well.
Back in early development of Overwatch, we actually had a very similar ping system. Ours was inspired from MOBA’s like League of Legends and Heroes of the Storm.
We eventually removed it because of a few issues.
It would be fun to revisit the system and see if we could make something like that workable. We do have some designs for improvements and customization to the communication wheel that we’re trying to get in. But we’re always appreciative of feedback and suggestions.
When the pros play Overwatch at the Blizzard Arena, it looks just like it does for you and me at home. They don’t see the team coloring of the HUD or the Visual FX. They don’t even see the team uniforms. It’s the spectator functionality and the broadcast that makes the game look that way.
You can use some color blind settings to adjust the way things look for you at home, but it’s not quite like the OWL view.
