Update: And we now have official confirmation as well in form of a tweet from the OW account.
May 22nd brings the 2nd Overwatch anniversary and we now have a better idea of what's happening in-game. It seems we're not only getting the (somewhat expected) new skins and cosmetics, but also old event skins and brawls will be available during that time (although it seems unclear if ALL brawls and skins will return or, more likely, only select ones)! The leak came from the Brazilian OW twitter and was taken down quickly, but not before reddit captured the footage:

That Junkrat pirate skin looks pretty damn good and there will probably be more new legendary skins coming. There are no other details about the event, such as an end date or specifics on how all those brawls will be available, so we'll just have to wait a little bit more, but it's certainly going to be an exciting event.

Seems somewhat likely it will return now, I kinda think they'll bring back all brawls (not sure about all skins tho), since the limited time events can make sense for skins but if someone really like a particular brawl it sucks when they have to wait a whole year for it.

Lúcio ball is an event that belongs to summer event, not anniversary event, so I'm guessing it will come back.. in summer.

The skins that are shown in the video belong to events other than anniversary too, like Roadhog's Christmas skin. So I'm not sure seasonal restrictions will apply.

Well, I already got that. It is very adorable for sure. I'd like to have Olympic Mercy as well. I really like the flame on her staff. And then I can keep not playing her (she is pretty but boring af)

Gotta have the skins just to have them. I barely play anything anymore other than Pharah and Mei, but I needed the Moira skin from Retribution.

      The latest Overwatch event is coming on Thursday the 23th, and we already have three skins to take a look at. They're actually pretty damn good ones, featuring Reaper, Hanzo and Reinhardt connecting with their eastern roots (with Hanzo going double eastern, not that that sentence makes any sense).
      Reaper seems to have won the skin-off this time, with his LÜ BU garments, and he even has some pretty great fan art ( by Ethan墨画 ) to go with it already.


      There will be a few more coming in the next few days and hopefully they'll be as good as these three.

      The events keep on rolling in, as we still have the Ana Bastet challenge going on until the 21st, and now Blizzard have already announced the next big one. The Lunar New Year is returning with the Year of the Pig and Solider:76 is pretty happy about it.
      So, new emotes, highlight intros for Solider at least, and a whole lot more cosmetics are coming next week, keeping things moving along and fresh.
      We also have a new video commissioned by Blizzard themselves by dillongoo, featuring a very fluffy Ana and Solider:

      There's a pretty staggering amount of OW Funko Pop figures out there (55!), from the basic models to more specific skins and designs, and that doesn't even cover all heroes! Game Informer has put together a list of all the different editions you can buy, some at exclusive retailers and pointed out that we still don't have a Bastion one!
      You can head on over there if you want to check out everything that's available, and here's a few of my picks for the best ones as well:

      Here come the announced PTR notes, focusing mainly on some armor changes, going from 5 to 3 maximum damage blocked (remaining at a cap of half of the original damage). We also have another Brigitte nerf, capping the duration of Rally to 30 seconds, a nef to D.Va's Defensive Matrix and a big buff to Reaper's self-healing.
      PTR Noes, January 8 (source)
      HERO UPDATES
      General
      Damage reduction from armor reduced from -5 to -3 Developer Comments: Before this change armor reduced all incoming damage by up to 5, maxing at half of the normal amount. This change reduces the damage reduction to 3, while still capping at half. This change will be mostly noticeable on heroes that fire quickly or in a burst of shots (such as shotguns), and which do more than 6 damage per shot. For example, Soldier: 76’s Heavy Pulse Rifle will now do 16 damage per shot to armor, up from 14, an increase of 15%. Armor was a bit too strong overall, especially when being healed quickly and often. This change will help more heroes fight against higher armored enemies.
      Brigitte
      Rally Now has a maximum duration of 30 seconds Developer Comments: Sometimes Rally could cause a snowballing effect where it was too difficult to deal with the increased health of Brigitte’s allies before she built up another one. This change puts a cap on how long her Rally effect can last to make it a bit more manageable in those situations.
      D.Va
      Defense Matrix Cooldown increased from 1 second to 2 seconds Developer Comments: This change allows D.Va’s enemies to try to play around her Defense Matrix by increasing its downtime between uses.
      Reaper
      The Reaping Life steal increased from 30% to 50% of damage dealt Developer Comments: Reaper’s passive is one of the main tools he has which allow him to play aggressively when near his enemies. This change allows him to keep the pressure up as long as he can stay near his enemies enough to keep dealing damage. This change is particularly effective versus tanks, as they tend to do less damage than damage heroes, and also take more damage from his Hellfire Shotguns due to their larger hit volumes.
