OVERWATCH UPDATED ON THE 13TH YA SCHMUCKS!
There's actually a lot of new things that's come out. Don't think this is just a thread about the gameplay! I'm also here to bring an update on the current storyline going on for Overwatch outside of the game, so I'll be going over stuff in order:

OVERWATCH ANIMATED SHORT: REUNION (McCree, Ashe & Bob, Echo reveal)
Summary: Out on Route 66, McCree drops in on an old friend -- Ashe, the co-founder and leader of the Deadlock Gang. McCree gets into a fight with the Deadlocks over the cargo they have seized which is of particular interest to him. This cargo turns out to be a sentient AI named Echo (not to be confused with Iris, who was most likely a prototype Symmetra given she had more or less the same kit). Ashe is the newest hero added to the roster:
The chronology of McCree being a cofounder of the deadlock gang and then being recruited into blackwatch as a teenager/late 20s before the fall of OW is a little more blurred now though since the "EST 1970" part of the Deadlock tattoo can make him anywhere between his stated age and 237 years old since Overwatch's current years are in the year 30XX... yeah it's weird

And here is the boatload of fixes and additions in the 2.54 ver update!

Brigette got nerf. Isn't this like the 7th nerf in the row so far? Lmao

Ashe is pretty difficult to do (but she's still easier than Widow), just have to find the right settings so I can play comfortably.

Is it me or there's a strange lag on the console? There were times were I moved, stop, but for some reasons, it still registers as me moving until a certain point. thonk

I ain't complaining, Baguette is annoying B| XDD

There's been an issue lately with latency and registering hits, so I wouldn't be shocked if the update exacerbated this on the console.

Aah, that's might be the issue then. It's a pain in the ass to move around, only for that to happen. It's not all the time, but when it comes to crutches and whatnot, it's sucks.

thonk Bob seems to get taken down pretty quickly if you discord it, so keep that in mind.

Is Echo Athena, or an completely different character?

Athena is a computer AI that is situated in Watchpoint Gibraltar if I remember correctly, at least, I think that's where Winston is stationed at.

Echo has a different voice actress and seems to have been sealed away in some kind of crate for no explicable reason. Blizzard likes creating more questions than actually answering them.

Iris in the art background of either one of the animated shorts or the concept art book, and bears an uncanny resemblance to Echo.

I don't see why they felt a need to give Echo a human face. She looks far more humanoid than an Omnic, so I'm not sure what she actually is. Iris' kit was basically split into Lucio's music and Symmetra's old abilities (minus the turrets). Jeff has stated they are working on 6 new heroes, but I'm not sure what exactly Echo could bring to the table if she actually will be her own hero and not an Assist trophy like BOB. She sounds implied to be a support hero.

Not sure what McCree means by "unfinished business" though. I know he's an outlaw in the current events of the story, but we've never actually seen him do anything that warrants a wanted poster (same with Ana, who is implied to be a mercenary that Egyptian authorities are currently after).
