Hello all - just a quick note to let you know we’re working with Intel on the Arc GPU crashes. I’ll post back here when we have more info.
Craig commented on Why are you changing Orisa Blizz? 50 days ago

We decided to give Orisa and Ramattra an adjustment in order to give them more competitive options to stand up to Roadhog. Originally we planned to adjust Roadhog in this patch, but we could not adjust him due to a technical issue with our hotfix today. We’ll keep an eye on all of these heroes and expect more updates in a future patch.

Craig commented on Why can't I be a Yeti? 51 days ago

Hey everyone. I get that it can take a while to actually be selected as the Yeti in Mei’s Yeti Hunt, but here is a tip to keep in mind to make it easier. If you are playing on your own, remember to consistently queue for the Yeti and complete your games as Mei, this helps increase your chances every game.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: heroes get cozy cosmetics, maps are blanketed in snow, and the arcade modes get a unique, icy twist!
