I'm not saying it even has to be a catch-all, I'm just saying start with underrepresented roles mixed in for those…
Yikes to that comments section. Real talk, it bothers that the OW community (well, ppl in general) have such broad…
I honestly don't play this game, but this is a huge issue with most every game out there. Representation matters.
the whole comment section under this article Hurts
Is... Is Pharah not Black?
lmao their response was so fuckin boring gnight

Ok @ayabrea_ , explica esto. 🤨🧐
Pergunta honesta aqui, Symmetra, Ana e Pharah não são consideradas negras?
Fucking dumbass!!!
Smh.... This is really disappointing
while their only black man hero is doomfist, a villain
"We saw cowboys were hot as fuck again so we needed another cowboy" whatever lmao
Лучше бы они объяснили почему у них есть фиолетовая баба
Devs are actually trash
"We dont want one"
That's great @Blizzard_Ent, but you still decided to put in yet another white woman before a single black woman.
Blizzard 😑 None so far. Out of 29.
because they arent politically correct
This article is good, Nathan is a great writer but mannnnnnn these comments are depressing
This is sad, Blizzard. Do better
Remember what it takes to comment on something. Easy as it is to type, how often DON'T you comment? Review your Ama…
Good piece and I like that the vagueness of Kaplan was addressed. No one is saying Ashe couldn't have been a charac…
Comments are exactly what you'd expect. No, Ana and Pharah don't count as black. Neither does Symmetra. Doomfist a…

ashe is cool, but also overwatch has 29 heroes now, and zero of them are black women. I asked blizzard about that

Maybe don't be so shallow to measure a character purely for the color of their skin.
how to avoid a question blizzard edition
Overwatch is cool but it doesn't have any Italians
Lol at Black women who refuse to look at indie games made by Black girls bc they wanna suck Blizzard's nut.
So the reason why Blizzard made another white character was because when they made that short film, they said "It'd…
Kotaku is good as fuck.
We will not be getting a black girl till 2020. I am calling it now

Interesting piece, you cannot claim to want diversity but fail to add a black woman to the game.
Im much more concerned about the balance of the game over the diversity of that cast All the diversity in the world…
