    Honestly as much as I love Archives and most OW events, I’d be willing to go a year without events if it meant they could just focus their time on OW2 and get it out soon.

  • Harpy
    Harpy2 days ago

    Wasted opportunity, it’s not too late to fix it; 1) Delete Widow and tracer skin because they have nothing to do with the character except nationality 2) Add Mansa Musa or just ‘King’ Doomfist and Traditional or ‘Saree’ Symmetra. 3) Add short descriptions like with other archive skins to relate the skin to the character 4) Make the special game modes exclusive by only releasing 3 per week 5) I know that your expecting this to be over watches worst year with popularity and income because hopefully your releasing ow2 next year but you still could’ve made a bit more of an effort.

    What?? Will there be no lore? Will there be no new story? Will there be a new assignment? Or at least maps ?? The Archive Event was created to reveal the story, and where is it? They feed again with the same skins. Yes, they are great. But the archival event has always differed from the rest with its lore. Not even a comic book or story

  • heg pxl
    heg pxl4 days ago

    For those who are interested I have some knowledge on Zarya's skin to share with ya'll, since I am Russian: this skin is based on the heavy cavalry class called " Bogatyr' " - very prominent slavic army figures that have many ties to nordic-slavic traditions. They usually commanded the tzar's army and subdivisions of that. They are like knights but usually have more similarities with vikings in historical descriptions - in that they are more physically buff and are prone to handle conflicts bare handed. But in Russian folklore and slavic mythos there is a specific bogatyr named Dobrinya Nikitich who defeated the dragon named "Zmey Gorinich" which had seven heads - that's why the gun has a red dragon motif. And the overall design of Zarya herself and her color scheme is similar to 20 century painting that depicts the same warrior mentioned earlier fighting the dragon. (you can find it on wikipedia)

    @Ximena Abrego the best thing about ow right now is the custom games. The queues for comp are too long because nobody plays anymore due to the lack of new events and heroes. You’re right, I’m not happy with everything because everything in overwatch has pretty much stayed the same for so long that it’s stale. I’ll still play ow 2 when it comes out and probably stick with it for years after just like i did with ow 1

    So? Archives is lore you remember? There are no new maps and no new modes since 2019. Sorry but whole 2020 and 2021 "events" are only for adding skins and sprays. Nothing more. I used to argue with guys who say Dead Game to Overwatch. Now, I agree them.

  • TimTime

    We'll get there again!! :/ As a diehard overwatch fan myself the wait is super hard and the devs are doing a pretty bad job at communicating with us. They want to impress us with the results, not talks. Judging on everything they've said in interviews throughout the years, Overwatch 2 will be huge. Events will be renewed, some removed, some new added, lots of new content with more than just cosmetics. It still takes time, for now all we can do is wait.

Protip: stay on top of the restaurant at the end of Retribution and retreat to the other end of the bridge outside of the fort during the final stage of Storm Rising. But stay with your team above all else!
