The Meat

  • Update to Blizzard launcher - cool little icons and collapsible sidebar.
  • Doomfist releases on 7/27 - that’s a Thursday! Weird.
    • Complaints about him just saying his move: the guys said that this is their homage to the fighting genre. They always do this.
  • New comic about Doomfist - if you haven’t read it via Madefire, you’re missing out. 
    • The question of whether or not Reaper got anything from the database in the Winston animated short has been answered: YES

      • Place your bets
      • Next player.
      • No!

      • Seems to want to eliminate the combined leadership
    • How quickly will the Masquerade costumes become skins?
  • Summer Games - will they happen again?
