People have a reason to be skeptical of the 4chan leaks. However, the leaks last time in terms of Osira and the Year of the Rooster event were all 100% accurate. Even the part where Blizzard was going to double down on the esports scene instead of trying to fix the MM in competitive play.

Sombra, Lena, Ana, Angela, Hana/D.VA? The theme is noticeable.

Names with A:
Ana
Sombra
D.Va
Symmetra

Names without A:
Mercy

Widowmaker

Names kinda pronounced like they end in A:
Pharah
Mei

This is amusingly even.

Funny, the team probably just likes how the names sound. To be fair they are all unique, we don't confuse one for the other.

Enough with new girl characters I'm sick of it time for dudes or a bloody animal maybe the cat with the jetpack and better be a dude.

Jeapers blizzy you made a dumb decision appealing to the dumb idiot, left Feminazis this is getting laughable.
Rofl, I find this trend a bit annoying too. I like imagining new characters, and I've kind of banned myself from naming my female characters with names that end in the "ah" sound. I allow myself to let this slip only rarely if everything before that vowel sound is rather unique in my opinion.

Now I've got a problem of ending most names with an N. *Sigh* It helps to go "what's a good name that would fit on a boy OR girl." Or even just write out the name... then cut off that soft vowel, and if it doesn't work, try to add just enough to end it with a less feminine sound. A names from my own list of OC I feel work naturally with either sex (and don't feel too out of Overwatch's world space:)

Everest
Hayden
Jules
Lynbel
Cou
Ash
Lui
Ryner

Though I understand that Blizzard might be looking up lists of proper names from the nationalities of their heroes, it just would be nice to stray from the easy pitfall of ending female names in "ah."
omg I love how everyone is noticing this just now
