    Jeff playing the “If you say nerf you explode” game

    • If you say nerf dva instantly interrupts by dropping her mech on you and finishing with “THIS” as her mech self destructs

  2. Jeff: Some heroes are going to receive changes that make w—


  3. Ooh boy, I can’t wait to get home and play Winston.
    Jeff: No.

  4. Jeff: “… this is not based on science”
    dinoflask: “we are making some balances, this is not based on science”

  5. 10:47 Finally! It took them YEARS to address that player icon issue.

  6. Burger King Demands 1 Million Subscribers

    “this is what you wanted.”

    Ive been on the forums asking for booty shorts Jeff…

  7. Hero pools: *exist*
    Flex players: This battle will be legendary!!

  8. Jeff: *doesn’t remember the word “nerf”
    Ex Mercy Mains: “Are we a joke to you?”


  10. ThePhysicalReaction

    So they’ll be examining what goes on with console play…

    “This is where the fun begins”

  11. Type of changes: Testing overwatch 2 on overwatch.

  12. Mm… I don’t know how I feel about this hero pool..

    • Think about it like this… There will never be another goats. That and i think when people hear that heros are getting banned for a week, people over estimate how many are getting banned… Its probably going to be 1-2, 2-4, 1-3… And the high points of those wpuldnt exist at the same time

  13. Jeff: “I know you’re going to give us a ton of feedback and we can’t wait to hear it all.”
    Good luck sifting through the thirty-thousand comments pointing out that you skirted saying the word “nerf”

  14. Every one in chat * make memes bout Papa Jeff *
    Jeff : please keep those coming

  15. “I have a bad feeling about this” ~ Orisa

  16. “Owl is excited about this idea as well.” ARE YOU SURE?

  17. The game’s been out for almost 4 years and we still have those same in-game stats and medals. Would be nice to see more useful in-game stats and maybe change the medals system

  18. I can hear the one tricks sweating

  19. You probably won’t see this but with the balance changing more frequently

    Can you add a menu on the main screen that could show patch notes?

    • Actually a good idea. I wanna see the patches but I don’t wanna pull open a new tab bc I know it will just be closed by the game in a few seconds, and it’s hard to find the patches that actually effect me. Maybe implement a thing that looks at what Heros you play most and give you a tab upon opening showing if any changes where made to the top five Heros you play.

    • Like that one 🙂

    • I know you can view patch notes on the battle net launcher!

    • Middleton Plays for console players though!
      It would be cool to replace the hero ability screen in game with patch notes or something

  20. 5:21 Producer: Avoid the word nerf at all costs people hate it.
