Blizzard swapped Tracer's butt pose in Overwatch

We’re sure you’re all still watching Overwatch’s #tracergate with keen anticipation, so you’ll be pleased to know that Blizzard replaced Tracer’s infamous “butt pose” with the latest patch.

Player complaints over the original pose of the quirky kid sister character were addressed last week by Game Director Jeff Kaplan, who said his team wasn’t comfortable the butt pose either and would be changing it, which of course sent the usual suspects into a frothing fight over “artists’ rights,” by which they mean artists’ obligations to render all the butts. ALL the butts.

Well, the butt pose people are going to be happy about the (side-butt?) replacement pose that is apparently Blizzard’s solution, which is plainly derived from pin-up art, most likely a piece by Alberto Vargas, as Twitter user @christianmccrea noted.

What do you folks think — is this an improvement for the character’s personality, or is it just more awkward than the original?


The Dragoon King;

"Let your character be your weapon, your fellow guild members be your armour, your blood thirst be your helmet, and use your boots to make a stand. After every battle allow your shield to be your faith in one another, and return from battle either carrying it or resting upon it."

Dorek: hopefully it has ingame voip
Dorek: then you could shout at em
Dorek: besides you sound like a fucking psycho anyway so you would make em piss emselves
