You died? Ah, that's sh*tty man. Best of luck making a mad dash back to defend the first point on Anubis without her.

Information just wants to be free... For those out there otherwise unaware this means that all five expansion packs have been consolidated into the basic game, which is $20 before starting up with the monthly subscription fee. 

Can't help but hear the tortured cries of those souls that perished in the closing of Nostalrius in the background though...

“Apologies for this bug. We've attempted to fix it numerous times and have had unrelated issues preventing the fix. We hope to have a fix this week,” Game Director Jeff Kaplan wrote in the Battle.net forums. “In the meantime, we are in discussions with our Customer Support group to start taking action against those deliberately using the bug to play heroes other than Lucio. Please do not exploit this bug. Fair warning.”

Over the course of a forum post on Battle.net, Blizzard outlined its policy on cheating in Overwatch, and placed a notable emphasis on the fact that players should play fair; play nice or suffer the consequences...

"If a player is found to be cheating — €”or using hacks, bots, or third-party software that provides any sort of unfair advantage — €”that player will be permanently banned from the game. Full stop," the company said. "Not only does cheating undermine the spirit of fair play that all of our products are based on, but it works to diminish the fun and enjoyment of others. While we are unlikely to publicly acknowledge when accounts are closed as a result of cheating or using unauthorized programs, we have and will continue to monitorOverwatch for exploitative behavior, as well as take action as needed to preserve the integrity of game."

Blizzard was quick to note that they will actively seek to verify accusations of cheating through the most reliable means possible:

"It's important to note that while video evidence from killcams, Plays of the Game, Highlights, and other community captured footage can be very helpful, we will never use it alone to verify whether or not cheating is taking place," Blizzard said. "As a result, we encourage players to play nice, play fair and avoid publicly accusing individuals of cheating whenever possible and instead use the reporting methods detailed above."

-Gee whiz! That was fun. Good playing!
-Well played. I salute you all.
-I could really use a hug right now.
-It's past my bedtime. Please don't tell my mommy.
-Ah shucks... you guys are the best!

Pretty exciting stuff here. The hype encircling Blizzard's latest franchise in 18 years has been palpable. As to be expected, the internet's already spat out a decent amount of gameplay videos/pictures. Can you really beat this though?



I went through a grabbed a pretty dang extended stream vid from Squadron foer anyone eager to spectate on various facets of gameplay available in beta:



Let's get a discussion rolling on everything and anything that's right, and wrong, with the game. Have you already started up with defaulting to Mercy or another support class, 'cause every gamer seemingly wants to play as Tracer? I don't know. Anyways, shoot:
