Reddit has some ideas on how to make Reinhardt and Moira more effective heroes

Users on Reddit have come up with an idea that they think would make life easier for Reinhardt and Moira players: adding a voice line to indicate what level their abilities are currently at.

For Moira, users suggested adding a voice line that plays when her reload button his hit that tells teammates she’s either out of healing or the percent she has left.

Similar for Reinhardt, users thought adding a voice line to his reload button that would tell teammates how much health his shield has left would be a good idea.

A voice line would allow Moira to get pesky teammates asking for healing off of her back and maybe allow for more effective communication between teammates.

Same with Reinhardt, if he were able to alert teammates as to when his shield is about to break, they would be able to get out of the way in time to avoid serious damage.

Talking in voice chat would solve the problems these users have brought up, but a lot of players either don’t listen or aren’t even in voice channels to begin with.

Voice lines, on the other hand, would come through the game’s audio and show up in the chat log to the side, reaching players who aren’t may not utilize voice chat.


Overwatch cosplayer gets ready for Halloween as a perfect Mercy

Halloween is almost upon us, and cosplayers everywhere are preparing for the holiday. This Overwatch Mercy cosplay goes above and beyond when bringing this angelic healer to life and deserves some extra recognition. 

When Overwatch came out back in 2016, there were only three healers, and Mercy was one of them. A lot has changed since then and there are a lot more Heroes, and the hero herself has seen quite a few changes. Despite this, she remains a fan favorite, especially for cosplayers.

There are plenty of awesome OW cosplays out there, but Hanxiaoyue really brings her to life with the help of @Anka_Ephemere on Twitter. The two collaborate for a fantastic rendition with excellent photography and visual effects.

Mercy cosplayer preps for Halloween

Despite the fact that Witch Mercy is Mercy’s Halloween skin, Hanxiaoyue went with the Winged Victory skin with some extra spooky effects, and she nailed it. Starting with her hair, she puts her blonde hair in a ponytail and parts her bangs. It is held back by a golden crown with wing-like ear guards, just like in the cosmetic. To cap it off, she includes the fern-like plants behind her ears.

For her attire, she dons a white tunic with gold embroidery held up with a brown rope. On her arms and legs, she wears bracelets. On her back, she has Mercy’s signature wings, modeled directly off of the skin. Then, there is of course the staff, which is perfect down to the last little leaf.

If the cosplay itself wasn’t impressive enough, the graphic design that goes along with it really gives it life. @Anka_Ephemere includes two shots with Mercy on a dark and fiery battlefield, and then another two with her at what appears to be Ilios Ruins.

The first two images are fitting for the hero, as she is a beacon of hope and light on the battlefield. The Winged Victory skin also based on the Goddess Nike and works well with the other images on Ilios, which is an Overwatch map based on Santorini in Greece.

This is one of the most impressive Mercy cosplays out there, and Hanxiaoyue really brings the character to life along with @Anka-Ephemere’s photography and graphic design.
