I'm a bit worried, due to the fact it wasn't even an organized effort, but if the developers says they're sympathetic to said cause and needs no further prompts, so be it. Nothing to lose your head over.


Also, Overwatch girls have nice butts! I love D.va!

Wasn't this a huge deal on social media or something a while ago? Kinda stupid imo. We're all raging over a virtual girl's butt. It's not like other games don't do it. More importantly the game is almost released and I'm guessing the servers will be super slow for the next 2-3 weeks. Then again finals. PFT WHO NEEDS GOOD GRADES

This was indeed a huge thing a while ago, but I know Blizzard changed the pose, and honestly it didn't change much xD. Tracer's butt is still very visible but I think the new pose is actually a lot more cute than the first.

But when you think about the fact that everybody went nuts with Tracer's body, but then they said absolutely nothing about Widowmaker, you realize how stupid everyone is for complaining about this in the first place. It's a damn videogame, we play it for fun and nothing else.

The issue wasn't the butt it was the pose not fitting Tracers personality. The developers agreed and changed the pose to fit her personality. This is why you haven't seen people go after the new pose despite it arguably showing off the butt more or going on about Widowmaker's look.

Remember reading about this a while ago.

I think the complaint was from a mother showing it to her young child? Something about children and role models.

But the game isn't meant for children to start with...

Its rated 12 and up. But no, the complaint arose on the forums that it didn't fit her character. Blizzard was already thinking about changing it internally before anyone else brought it up. So its not really a case of moral outrage quashing artist creativity.

Besides, given the pose they replaced it with and the fact Widowmaker's inhuman hips/ass thrust/high heels are still in the game I don't see what anyone is complaining about. Most the female characters are still wearing skintight cat suits.

If anything they should go all Hawkeye Project and give one of the male characters the exact same butt pose.
