Overwatch Summer Games Next Week

A new Overwatch developer update video reveals the return of the Summer Games to the multiplayer shooter, saying things will kick off on August 8th, and the festivities will include the return of Lúcioball. This will be a relief to anyone who thought they'd have to wait for the next summer Olympics to earn new skins and goodies. Jeff Kaplan brings us the news along with other future plans, describing all they learned from running the first event last year, and promising the new one will benefit from this experience. The description of the clip has an index of all the topics covered:

I"Enough of me rambling. You all want to hear about Lucioball"

No, I don't. I could care less of lucioball. wtf?

Well I love OW, play it every day, and my first thought when I heard about a new Summer Games event was "What about Lucioball?" My second thought was "What about the skins I didn't get last year?"

Fix competitive gameplay, and fix Quickplay matchmaking. Stop putting me in matches with people that aren't at my skill level. Give me a key to press to communicate an enemy's position to my team, so I can stop feeling helpless when I'm on a team with no one in voice chat.

wtf...

I think it's as good as it's going to get.
Then I guess I'm a better game designer than Blizzard.

How much of a SR discrepancy do you get?

Maybe I should clarify that I don't play much Overwatch since release, I just pop in occasionally. So I'm out of the loop a bit, if something's fucked up with it. After playing tons of Diablo again recently, I'm well aware Blizzard can royally fuck up or ignore problems. =P

I just never ran into problems with OW.

Cool. This event had some skins I really wanted and never got (now available with credits, for cheapish). Lucio Ball is also very fun.

I don't get it. Why isn't this developer update talking about the improvements they're doing to the areas that need improvement.

"Enough of me rambling. You all want to hear about Lucioball"

No, I don't. I could care less of lucioball. wtf? Fix competitive gameplay, and fix Quickplay matchmaking. Stop putting me in matches with people that aren't at my skill level.
