    >still no Fenix
    I promised myself I wouldn’t touch this (likely) teaming garbage pile of a game until he got in, and it looks like he never will.
    Probably a good thing to be honest.

    Here’s hoping Hanzo won’t be as broken as he is in Overwatch with his Scatter Arrow.

    Cinematic model of Alexstrasza looks a little off but it seems that she looks fine in game.

    Overwatch characters really ruined the aesthetic of this game, they don’t fit in at all

    The cast of Overwatch characters has effectively ruined the the ‘nexus’ for me. They don’t fit in with the rest of the games at all. And the Overwatch maps that has been implemented thus far are by far the most hated ones by the community, so much so that there are countless threads on various forums petitioning the developers to remove them in their entirety.

    As for the cinematic, this must be made by Blizzards ‘B team’, because it’s just as bad as the Legacy of the Void one. Even the Hearthstone tweening-images cinematic was far better.

    Well,this one is pretty good.Mostly because of the singing dwarf.
