Looks pretty cool. Jennifer Hale does her voice, which I also enjoy. I've seen some gameplay video responses - people who played it at Blizzcon and they felt like the ultimate was a little lacking, if not situational. Otherwise the rest of her kit was pretty decent.

The Blizzard forums are interesting about this though. Instead of being happy for getting a new hero (for free) they seem to be whining that its a white woman instead of a person of color.

I think the most intelligent response to that I saw was someone who said that if they had made it a person of color and she's in charge of a gang, then Blizzard would be getting attacked for stereotyping another race for whatever.

I got Overwatch when it came out. I burned out on it pretty fast. I Have only gone back in once or twice. I know they have been adding maps and characters and kudos to Blizz for that. Have they added any male characters? Granted maybe they have and missed it. Just seems like everytime I hear about a new character it's a female one. Which seems weird. Not bad just weird.

One, Doomfist.

Here is the post launch date character releases.

22 Ana Support 19 July 2016
23 Sombra Damage 15 November 2016
24 Orisa Tank 21 March 2017
25 Doomfist Damage 27 July 2017
26 Moira Support 16 November 2017
27 Brigitte Support 20 March 2018
28 Wrecking Ball Tank 24 July 2018
29 Ashe Damage TBA

So 5 females, 1 robot (female I guess), and 1 cute cuddly ball of murder (hamster). Of the post release group you've had 2 white characters, the rest are middle eastern, hispanic, and black.

The original line up had 10 males, 8 females, 2 robots (one genderless, one male) and 1 monkey (male). Of that original count 10 were white of various types, 8 were of other ethnicities (4 asian of various types, 2 black, 1 india, 1 middle eastern/native american).

So I'm just a little confused by the whining about diversity. I'm getting more and more disillusioned with the world I guess as all I see is alot of negative complaints and not praise for what we do get.

I forgot about Doomfist wasn't he rumored 4ever b4 he ever came out. The SJWs will never be happy. The SJWs eat their own aswelll. Maybe Blizzard saw how popular OW female characters are on porn hub. Hence more female characters. If fans are making porno with your characters it is free adverts. It makes some business sense I guess now that I think about it.

Maybe she's a she, because they wanted a female counter to McCree?
And maybe she's White, because they've already done a bunch of diverse characters and wanted to get back to some paler skins, huh? You know... "balance".

I don't think most people want "all or nothing". Unfortunately, the internet (especially here) are always looking for something to complain about and think that the world is zero-sum. Sometimes it's just, "hey, you like cowboys, right? We already have one... but if we make a woman, we'll get more... you know... draft that Red Dead hype! Okay, make a cowboy chick, concept department!"

The left wanted this, they wanted to politicize any and everything. enjoy your identity politics, now even in gaming.

Same here. I think, in the end, I just don't enjoy the class based shooters as much as a say Counterstrike, Quake, etc. Every character feels weak to me in some way when I play OverWatch. Blizz makes games that ooze style but they've been striking out on the fun factor for me for a while now.

There is all this random butthurt that Ashe is not black. Etc.,

Its a good thing I don't need to be represented to play any games. Last I checked, the last Burmese character in a game was a bad guy.. who wasn't even fucking Burmese.

ABCDE, Ashe. Get that checked for melanoma. Serious business, skin cancer!

Looking forward to trying Ashe out. Overwatch is the only shooter I can stomach anymore.

She looks rather good. Her shotgun mobility looks fantastic and I think her dynamite and NPC ultimate--disrupting abilities on a ranged character--are a good start for breaking up the GOATS dominance. I do not want to see quad-sniper or pure dive again--But the 3/0/3 and desperate attempts to counter it is getting old.

Most likely it is due to the last three characters, minus the hamster, being white. So people had expected that another person of color would have been released by now, but totally forget how diverse the line-up has been.

The funny thing is, Blizzard just seems to trying to keep the ethnic diversity one to one. We had three persons of color plus misc as the initial group of new characters followed by three Caucasians plus misc.

Pretty much, granted these are the same people that believe simply saying "it's ok to be white" is some sort of racism alone. I say it all the time, liberals are literally mentally ill.
