Orisa is a new TANK hero that brings a lot of utility ranging from immunity from CC allowing her to position offensively without being stun locked, CC from a gravitation charge that slows and pulls enemies towards the explosion, a stationary barrier that can be thrown and buffing her allies’ damage.

Orisa currently has a base health of 400.

Abilities

FUSION DRIVER – Orisa’s automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it. Ammo:200

FORTIFY – Orisa temporarily reduces damage she takes, and cannot be affected by action-impairing effects. CD:10s

HALT! – Orisa launches a graviton charge which she can detonate, slowing nearby enemies and pulling them towards the explosion. CD: 8s

PROTECTIVE BARRIER – Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire. 900 Health Shield with CD:12s

SUPERCHARGER – Orisa deploys a device to increase damage inflicted by allies within her line of sight.

Orisa is currently available to be played on PTR.

Overwatch – 2017 Lunar New Year Event

Overwatch’s 2017 Lunar New Years Event has started and will go until February 13th. It features a Lunar New Years Event Capture the Flag brawl on Lijiang Tower.

In Capture the Rooster, teams will face off on Lijiang Tower, attempting to secure the enemy flag while the opposing team does the same. In this fast-paced brawl, players will need to get creative with their team compositions as they attempt to construct a lineup that’s built for offensive speed and defensive stability.

Overwatch’s Lunar New Years Event replaces original loot boxes with Lunar Loot Boxes that can reward Lunar themed items.

Diablo 3 – Season 9

Diablo 3’s Season 9 ladder has begun and it’s going off Patch 2.4.3 which doesn’t really have any new additions to the game except a few new legendaries and set changes that warrant little to no change to meta-builds since Season 7. Similar to Season 8, the season is going to be lackluster and burn-out is going to happen very soon when all season journey rewards have been claimed.
