  • I miss this mode

  • Wonter Winderland

  • nice.

  • Yeti hunt is basically Vs Saxton Hale from TF2

  • I hope you are watching the translation of the video for the Arabic language as we benefit

  • When did we ask for more Mei Jeff ???

  • Jeff when are you going to give widow a better ult?

  • I have a cool update for tracer her ult can be that time stops accept her and her teammates

  • I hear that you guys listen to people so... If hanzo can one shot people with a regular arrow I think it’s only fair that other heroes can do it too. Like mei. 🤷‍♀️ after I freeze people, which already takes away some health, I have to shoot them twice in the head.

  • we all love mei -jeff HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA the demon

  • One question where is hero27 hinted at comics,animation or ingame?

  • make a genji skin in lunar event

  • The winter event in the game has been fun. The maps, loot and Mei stuff. What's NOT been fun is your new Match making system. Many of us players here are TIRED of "Charity matches". ie. being a lvl 500+ player and having all SCRUBS on our teams (1-200s). It really makes for an annoying and very toxic environment. I myself included have become toxic, because I get matched up with 4 other players WELL below my team experience level, while these newb-trash, morons sit there doing NOTHING in the game. I don't care if they are smurf accounts from your Christmas income bonus sale. I don't want them on my team. If their account IS NOT of a certain level. They shouldn't be on my roster. It's time to bust out Oracle database and maybe invest a few million in a CRAY computer system to properly decide match makes. You got the money. Don't lie. This game has gone from Overwatch to overflush. Because that dumb broad Moira was put into the game, along with Dumbfist. We hate both of these characters. Oh and while you are at it. FIX THE GAME'S MEMORY LEAK!!^9. Learn to code for play. You don't allocate your game's programming resources correctly. The game should rely MORE on the GPU and less on the CPU.

  • 1:44 '' we know how much you love mei'' Do you realy want to die?

  • Yeti hunt best arcade so far ty

  • great steal from, and excellent shade throwing at, evolve there.

  • Hey I cold give u Carter's ideas

    • Make a movie I was waiting for days and a 1 years

  • Plis derf scater arrow /Hanzo :)

  • This was a pretty bad event when you consider you literally get 0xp

  • BUT WHEN ARE YOU NERFING JUNKRAT AND MERCY??

  • Your next hero should be a defense because there has been two new offense and support heroes and one tank but no defense.

  • Jeff i love u xD i got 3 legendarys in a row thank you for giving me the legendary power thx u

  • Saxton hale or me I who will get the yeti first

  • Can we please get ,uea and south Africa servers for overwatch , ea have why doesn't blizzard have them ,🎅

  • Why do i lose sr when i lag out of the game?

  • What is your email? I have something to say

  • hey jeff can you add a diffrent ultimite abbility to symetery where she can get a mech

  • What is wrong with mercy????

  • Please bring back no limits completely

  • You made the yeti op nerf him

  • i love yeti hunt

  • 27 hero plz mama hong

  • Thank you guys! I very much love the new mode and skins; Great work on everything, and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  • I'm done with overwatch so many problems but they don't care 🙌🙏🙌🙏🙌🙏🙌🙏

    • ScalyDinosaur3e yeah they want to be a Halo scene but like 343 a shooter isn't the best aspect

  • I think the hero should have other ability but they should be unlock and all hero should have more or 2 more ability to be unlocked and also some hero need some more health

  • When is genji getting a new skin

  • jeff i have some questions: ever since OW dropped everything about lore happened before OW regrouped, are we ever going to find what happened after that like what will the gouvermant do against it

  • I love you Jeff

  • Jeff if you want it to be fun, give higher Chance for getting legendary!!!

  • Question; in Mei's Yeti Hunt, can I NOT play as may, possibly a quality character(s) like the ones from the Halloween event, PLEASE, STOP WITH THE MEI CANCER S**T, JEFF YOUR ONLY FUELING THE MEI MAIN CANCER STORM, PLEASE JEFF HELP END MEI AND MAKE OVERWATCH GREAT AGAIN, OR GET RID OF HER ABILITY TO FREEZE PEOPLE, THE SLOW EFFECT IS GOOD ENOUGH

  • Can I directly buy the skins without having to gamble with my money?

  • Can we get yeti hunt all year round? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • You should say something about how you desecrated the legendary rate man...30 hours and no new skins. Fml

  • Release more D. Va skins! :D

  • Jeff I have a question where you high when you added Moira

  • I don't want new skins and re-skinned maps, I want new MAPS and new GAMEMODES. This update was just essentially new skins and 1 seasonal game mode

  • So when is symettra getting a nerf to her lock on.. surely she shouldn't keep the damage buff after getting a kill and it carrying over to another charcter

  • That moment when Blizzard is making Evolve 2

  • Jeff we need dab emote every single characters 😉

  • Mei learned how to make traps? ... SHIP CONFIRMED

  • Next developer update story mode

  • Jeff can you make a trading system please

  • Evolve game mode 😂😂😂

  • Hey Jeff why do you hate mercy so much? She’s had like 4 nerfs like come on

  • if you guys agree with me then like if they should delete bastion

  • Cant wait I'm getting the game this Christmas. Btw you should make a non-canon game to overwatch where people can use the website and pick parts from there favorite characters and add it to their character just saying.

  • Hey Jeff. I won‘t lie, my fellow Lucio Mains and I are really disappointed. Lucio only got one christmas skin, and it isn‘t even a legendary one. Looks pretty ugly tbh. While you aren‘t putting a lot of effort into Lucios new skins besides the anniversary skin (and he actually is one of the most picked heroes in the game) you made a legendary christmas skin for Roadhog last year, you made one this year and you also created the soon coming skin „Butcher“. Now, to me - as an actual Lucio main - that all seems pretty unfair. I would really appreciate, a legendary christmas skin for Lucio this year.

  • Lol love mei more like hate mei

  • You should also fix the toxic players on comp and quick play

  • But......pharah

  • So basically eVolve

  • She's been missing out.I hear you saying new skins are coming up but no new skins for Diva.

  • Jeff why isn't there new skins for Diva man? Diva has been missing out for 2 events; possibly 3.

  • Whoop

  • The only time you will ever hear anything remnant of season pass in Overwatch. Love you guys.

  • For me this is such an amazing event because the first time i booted up overwatch it was that christmas music that played in my ears and listening to it now is so much more different than any other event! im gonna enjoy this way more just because of that music lol

  • So there brawl is Evolve, but Overwatch

  • *Hai I'm Jeff From the Overwatch Team*

  • so u just play the new game mode to unlock winter loot boxes?

  • I have a question, can you make that we can change abilities of heroes in custom games? Because it will be awesome but also chaotic( can you imagine roadhog with mercy’s regen ability!?!?! or mercy with zaria’s shield?!?!)

  • Jeff I haven't been able to get into Overwatch on my account I was just wondering if I got banded or not my account name is hootsalot and the account number is #11317. I would like to have this fixed by tommorow or today not to be picky I just really want to play the new event

  • Tfw there's nothing lighthearted about the Yeti hunt mode. There's no way you'll win as Meis if you play alone and not in a premade group because there's always someone who just runs into the Winston ult or doesn't realize that they're going to get killed if they're close to him when he is about to get that ult. Also once you're in a pool there's always gonna be that one same guy as Winston every single round, the Yeti player never changes unless you leave the game and re-que.

  • So, you can put in preference as to what you wanna play in the Brawl mode (Yeti or Yeti hunter). Why can't you put preferences on what character class you wanna play (Attack, Defense, Tank, Support)? I feel like if there was a mechanic like this, matchmaking and team comps would be way better.
