    Just the ladies? For some reason with this patch, there has been literally 0 ping spikes. Makes me think they actually fixed the QoS issues or it was something unrelated. Now instead of playing with a spike every 7 seconds I can actually play smoothly!

  3. PATCH HIGHLIGHTS New Hero: Doomfist (Offense): Equipped with charisma and ambition, Doomfist is a consummate tactician and one of the leaders of Talon: literally throwing down his gauntlet as he joins the fight. From his base in Nigeria, Doomfist is a commanding offense hero equipped with hard-hitting melee abilities. Driven by a belief that conflict is essential to humanity’s progress, he’s committed to advancing his vision of the future—even if the agents of Overwatch disagree with his methods. Doomfist’s cybernetics make him a highly mobile, powerful frontline fighter. His primary attack is the Hand Cannon; this four-shot weapon fires projectiles from Doomfist’s knuckles one at a time or in a single blast. With his secondary attack, Rocket Punch, he charges forward and delivers a devastating blow, knocking back any opponent it connects with and dealing extra damage if the enemy is hurled into a wall. Seismic Slam smashes into a targeted area, knocking opponents toward him so he can deal further damage. His Rising Uppercut tosses enemies high into the air, while his passive ability, The Best Defense…, grants him shields every time he uses one of his abilities against an opponent. Lastly, his ultimate ability, Meteor Strike, causes him to leap high and drop into a targeted area, dealing massive amounts of damage. Loot Box Updates We always want the experience of opening a loot box to feel exciting and rewarding, and in our latest patch, we’re working to improve that experience in two key ways. First, we’re drastically reducing the amount of duplicates you will receive when opening loot boxes. Second, to compensate for this reduction of duplicate items, we’re also increasing the overall amount of credits you will receive from loot boxes. On average, you should be earning just as many credits, if not slightly more, from loot boxes as you did prior to these changes. New Highlight Options Our highlights system has received several major updates: The game will continue to automatically generate highlights for you based on your recent gameplay. These auto-generated highlights—now categorized as “Today’s Top 5”—will be surfaced on a daily basis and persist for a full 24 hours (or until the game client is patched, whichever happens first). Players can now generate their own highlights! The ability to capture 12 seconds of your own gameplay has been added to the game, and can be bound to a single button of your choice (or a button per highlight slot) in the Options menu under “Request Highlight.” These player-generated highlights will be saved under a new section called “Recently Captured” and will persist until the game client is patched. Players can have up to 36 recently-captured highlights stored at one time. With the above, players can now record any of their “Top 5” or “Recently Captured” highlights, exporting them as a video file to their gaming platform’s designated media library (on console) or directory (on PC). On PC, players will also have the option to select the quality at which these highlights are exported, supporting up to 4K for Windows 8 or higher operating systems, and up to 1080p on Windows 7. GENERAL Adjusted the respawn timing to limit defensive stalling strategies when the offensive team has a clear advantage and plays aggressively Custom Games and Game Browser Clarified the text on the “Flag Carrier” options under the Capture the Flag settings for Custom Games Removed the “Projectile Speed” and “Projectile Gravity” options for heroes who do not have projectile weapons Minimum movement speed has been changed to 50% (formerly 10%) Players can no longer select Roadhog during Limited 1v1 matches User Interface Added ability to create customized reticles Reticle options can be found under the “Controls” tab in the “Options” menu (click the “Advanced” expander under the “Reticle” heading) The name of Mercy's “Stethoscope” spray has been changed to “Heartbeat” Statistics gathered from 6v6 Elimination matches will now be added to statistics in the Career Profile Tie games will no longer be included in the win percentage calculation that’s listed under the Player Profile HERO UPDATES D.Va Defense Matrix New sound effects and voice lines have been added, indicating when Defense Matrix has absorbed an enemy’s ultimate ability Genji Deflect New sound effects and voice lines have been added, indicating when an enemy’s ultimate ability has been deflected McCree Flashbang Stunned targets are now slowed heavily, meaning they're less likely to escape while stunned (especially while in the air) Developer Comment: This change will make McCree's Flashbang consistent against fast-moving targets like Genji or Lúcio. Reaper Shadow Step Sound effect and VO distance has been reduced by 50% Developer Comment: Even though Shadow Step wasn't intended to be used as a way for players to teleport right next to an enemy without their knowledge, the sound effects were audible from distances that made teleportation difficult from nearly anywhere. This change allows Reaper to be a bit more sneaky with his flanking options. Reinhardt Rocket Hammer Swing speed increased by 10% Developer Comment: In the last update, Reinhardt’s Rocket Hammer had an issue that allowed players with higher latency to swing faster. We fixed this bug, which suddenly made the swing speed feel too slow, so we’re compensating by increasing his standard swing speed. During this process, we also found and fixed a few bugs with Rocket Hammer’s hit registration. Overall, the hammer should feel much better. Zarya Graviton Surge Now disables mobility abilities on all affected targets Developer Comment: In the past, the abilities that allowed heroes to escape Zarya’s Graviton Surge felt fairly arbitrary. We’re cleaning this up and increasing Graviton Surge's overall power by rendering all movement abilities unusable when an enemy is trapped. BUG FIXES
  4. @smiley ever thought of applying for admin yourself. If you are playing at the times which admins need to be on and you are willing, then why not help out too. If you fill the requirements and you are a decent person then just go ahead and apply.
  5. interested?

    EU/US is to be decided but I could safely assume US. Technically any team can have members from any rank. This means that if you aren't ranked right now you could still go play and get a rank and still have a chance to compete. At the moment there aren't as many details to go off. This is to gather up how many people are actually interested.
  6. You have been accepted. Message me if you have any questions or issues.
  7. Try pressing delete a couple times. I thought this may of been an issue for myself at one point but just pressing delete 3 ish times got rid of the tag.
  8. interested?

    Just to let you all know this will also help gather information on whether we pursue a League of Legends mini division too. (there will be a separate discussion for this)
  9. We are discussing within multiple communities at the moment on whether we should hold a cross-community tournament on League of Legends. At the moment we are trying to gauge how many people from each community are interested in competing within this style tournament. I have spoken to many people who have shown interest in this and want to reach out to everyone. If you could all take a couple moments to fill this in https://goo.gl/forms/FKDmgdWmm5EeRki62. This is a questionnaire to help find out if we want to/ have enough interested people to enter a League event. Once you've filled it in could you make a post below to let me know. Thank you
  10. Same ^ Also @ZombieSurvivalist224 please don't ask for likes on a post it's against the rules, I removed that statement from your post.
  11. I have to say I think you have misunderstood me. I am not an artist or a graphics designer at all. Just making an observation towards the image. Also if you have an issue with the creative team, message me. Their "questionable" actions may have a reason or might be something I should deal with. They aren't here to work against anyone, they are here to work with us all. Yes sometimes some members can come across in the wrong way but that is not intentional and is something which is being talked about.
  12. btw many where very aware that the logo was not going to be our logo, but ty very much for seeing this as a chance of improvements. rather then a bad thing as it seems others are looking at it like that ty again remember how great a meme can be now. And how we can turn a meme into something good. You are my hero.

      I can appreciate the work put into making it. I had to make it officially known that it won't be our logo just in case anyone read that and thought otherwise. However, I would love to encourage people working together to try to better something. 

       

      It may have been taken the wrong as the comments seemed as if they were directed at a GFX members work. However, opinions can be great ways to facilitate improvement.

  13. Just in case you guys were thinking that this is/was planned to be a logo for GFL, it is not. The original design was made for a member using their specifications for personal use. Back on topic I actually do like It is very "2010" in its design. However, with the GFL theme being grey and blue I would like to see it reworked a little to fit our theme.
  14. Makes a thread asking for a shitpost thread. Realised he just made his very own shitpost thread.
  15. You just triggered my trap card aka maxresdefault.jpg

    or else risk the worst it's called being in funny-memes-ultimate-trap-card.jpg
