Booty not updating
(The game's closest male equivalent is the swordsman Genji, who, like all cybernetic ninja, has buns of steel.) We've seen this type of negative reaction to games in development altering their content a lot recently.
While the original criticism from Fipps was measured, thoughtful and thorough, response to that feedback has swung in the other direction, toward hyperbole."From Mei to Zarya to Widowmaker the female cast reflects a large spectrum of personalities and player fantasies," Fipps wrote. From a marketing standpoint, she's the star of the show. When we look at the way she's portrayed in promotional media, lore, and art in game we know a few things about her: She's fast. "What about this pose has anything to do with the character you're building in [Tracer]? "It's not fun, its not silly, it has nothing to do with being a fast elite killer.It just reduces [Tracer] to another bland female sex symbol." Fipps argues that that sort of pose is appropriate, from a character standpoint, for another Overwatch hero: the sultry French assassin Widowmaker.Update: Game director Jeff Kaplan posted a lengthier statement on the Overwatch forums to expand on Blizzard's decision and the ensuing fallout.Blizzard also re-opened the original forum thread to allow further discussion. While I stand by my previous comment, I realize I should have been more clear.
