For this installment of the ongoing Overwatch digital comic series, we go into the past (like in most installments, now that I think about it) and see Strike Commander Jack Morrison aka Solider: 76 deal with an Omnic crisis of his own on King's Row.

"I fought to survive, and I’m willing to fight for the world, too."

The latest installment in our series of digital comic shorts has arrived: Uprising!

In "Uprising," readers travel seven years into Overwatch's past, witnessing a flashpoint in the conflict between omnics and humans. On the eve of a historic peace accord, King's Row is seized by an extremist faction of robots known as Null Sector. The British government forbids Overwatch from interceding, which means Strike Commander Jack Morrison must decide whether to disobey orders or stand by while thousands of lives are in peril.

Written by Blizzard’s own Michael Chu and illustrated by Gray Shuko, "Uprising" is now available for download at comic.playoverwatch.com. You can also experience the action and sound of this story through the Madefire motion book on desktop, mobile, and Apple TV.

We hope you enjoy it and stay tuned for more Overwatch comics coming soon!

      There's another blue post adding two new changes coming with Season 6, skill rating calculations after wins and losses and high tier players can now drop to lower tiers:

      In our latest developer update, Jeff Kaplan shared a variety of changes coming soon to Season 6 of Competitive Play. Along with these changes, there are two more important updates planned for Season 6 that we didn’t get to talk about in the video:
      Players in Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond can now drop into lower skill tiers We’ve made some adjustments to how skill rating is calculated after a win/loss  
      SKILL TIER UPDATES
      Players in Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond will now be moved into lower skill tiers if they cannot consistently maintain the minimum skill rating for that tier. After a loss, the game will check to see what a player’s current tier and skill rating are—if their skill rating has not exceeded the minimum for their current tier for the past five games, they will be demoted. (Players will never be demoted on a win.)
      Don’t worry: Competitive Points awarded at the end of a season will still be based on the highest tier earned that season. So, for example, if you reached Platinum during Season 6, but ended the season in Gold, you will still receive a number of Competitive Points based on your Platinum ranking.
      SKILL RATING UPDATES
      We've adjusted the calculations that determine how much skill rating players will gain after a win and lose after a loss. These changes should help address some of the anomalies players have been reporting, especially with heroes that have lower win-rates. We'll continue tuning this system and are committed to making additional adjustments so that players are encouraged to play the hero they feel gives their team the best chance to win a competitive match.
      As a reminder, Season 5 ends August 28 at 5PM PT and Season 6 begins August 31 at 5PM PT. Competitive Point rewards for Season 5 can be found here.

      We're getting to see Mei's origin story, and it's a pretty bleak one in the beginning there. Blizzard have made another great animated short, deepening the lore of the world and filling in the backstory of the various Heroes, so take a look!

      The gamescom stream has revealed a lot of junk! We just got the latest animated short, featuring everyone's favorites, Junkrat and Roadhog, starring in "Junkertown: The Plan". And then there's also the actual Junkertown escort map that will be coming soon!
