as long as rez is in the game at any meaningful capacity in the game, mercy's never going to be balanced because she completely nullifies getting picks because her absurd healing and winning trades/first bloods outrides any utility that zenny, ana, or lucio can bring to a comp, and when ana and lucio had their sustain and self-healing nerfed, they buffed mercy's so you have this insanely mobile healer that if you don't lock her down and kill her immediately she'll regen back to full in less than 10 seconds after being on the brink of death, so if you fail to punish killing her you'll likely lose the trade and if you focus somebody else she'll just nullify your pick and rez them back to full

 

if the opposing team has mercy you have to run her or lose, at least when ana and lucio were strong, zenny and mercy were still good and worth considering, when mercy's strong she's objectively better than every healer in the game

I remember triple tank. I remember when people actually wanted to be tank instead of me having to choose between that and healer every single round.

the problem with overwatch right now is that it's a young game, which means two things

 

-inexperience balancing the game properly

-lack of a foundational bedrock for the game's balance

 

when a single hero or two is unbalanced, the pool of characters is still small enough that it'll drastically affect the balance of the game as a whole, a healthy baseline of "well this will always be viable/good" in the game's meta hasn't been as heavily established as other games with complex balance issues

 

unlike league of legends where no matter how much i bitch about caitlyn being a poorly balanced dumpster fire of a champion, her presence alone isn't enough to render the entire ADC pool completely unviable, just lucian and vayne theydonothing;

I should be uploading those FLAC files tonight. There's a site update for me to do as well.

 

Life's been busy - but in a very good way! If all is well, I should have a resident visa in New Zealand in just a few weeks. :)

Thanks! It was something only my fiancee and the judges had seen. Throughout the con I only opened my parasols maybe 2 or 3 times and they were never loaded with petals. So before the contest I loaded them to shower the crowd with for my final pose (as shown) and the crowd went crazy. It was fantastic.

Dude I lost my shit just watching the video I can only imagine what it must have been like live in person. The cosplay / Zelda community is blessed only have you.

There's no evidence in the text that the Monster Mash takes place on Halloween. It's just a fun party for monsters that could be in April for all we know.

The evidence of it being a graveyard smash is insurmountable.

It was the sad-look-at-flower pose. Which I then turned around and gave it to the MC.

 

Then I did my best shuffle-walk to look like a Deku to center stage where for pose 2 I did the hands-on-head headshake Link does when he's first turned into a Deku. 

 

Shuffle to the last point, then did a couple "looking over my shoulder" checks before pulling out the parasols for the finish.

 

I did a shit ton of pictures over the weekend for it (I only wore it Friday and Sunday) and a lot of people loved that I picked a Link that's so rarely done in cosplay. Took about 2 months and around $400 (it was my first build, mistakes were made, lots of learning involved), but it was so worth it.

Ugh fuck wind

 

Agreed. I never realized how annoying wind could be until my hair got longer. Now it is my sworn enemy.

The last of my financial aid and insurance waivers were applied to my bill for this semester and my remaining balance went from $2000 to $130. I almost started crying in the middle of DnD last night.
