OWL Contenders Logo

General Discussion
Would be Genji...suprise surprise
Yeah, who would have guessed they'd use one of the most unique designed and iconic characters in the game to represent their T2 esports scene since the covergirl was already taken for the T1 scene.
delfecting? or its a small logo?

You mean the other pampered hero besides tracer? Yeah that one.

Yeah man, cyber-ninjas are lame. There's no way anyone would look at that logo and become interested, because everyone knows ninjas are just, soo lame. /s

Seriously though, Genji has a great silhouette, especially with the sword. It makes for a dynamic logo that is clearly not for a 'regular' sport. Even to those not familiar with Overwatch, it evokes the idea of fast-paced gameplay and dynamic combat.

The one in C Tier currently?

The first hero to receive a nerf to their passive ability and the first hero to receive a nerf to their ultimate since launch? The one that had no-reg ultimate swings for 12+ months before Blizzard even acknowledged them? Yeah that one.

The one who also made a carpet nerf to the entire cast of heroes even though it should have been only him to have his ult nerfed when slept or killed mid animation? The one who got that extra swing in the end even though it should have been 6 not 7 swings? The one who can animation cancel and all his hitboxes are wayyy too generous? Yeah that one.

Stop taking the change for this out of context.

Genji ult would be cancelled by a stun ONLY DURING THE CAST and he would get it refunded. It was made consistent with the other transformation ultimates with cast times (Soldier and Bastion) so that the cast will complete if he's stunned but he will lose it when he dies during the cast.

It was always intended to be 7, There was a bug which resulted in some high ping players getting 6 since the ult change from 8 to 6 seconds was poorly implemented with his 1.16 swings per second rate of fire.

Animation cancel? You mean like every hero in the game?

Genji's only animation cancel is M1/M2 + Melee, which every single hero can do.

McCree can, Roadhog can, Pharah can, Reaper can, etc.

It was actually 6 but some got an extra swing so they just gave everyone 7 after the patch.

“We’re going to increase his swing speed overall so he’ll gain that 7th swing back for all players, regardless of latency,”

His swing rate was 1.16666r They rounded it from 6.999999999 to 7 to prevent swing numbers being different based on latency. So they effectively gave him 0.0001 extra swings due to the way they rounded it.
If you've ever watched the Overwatch League you've seen Seagull play. We're all ProvGenji mains after that.

Bust out as many numbers you want goodman literally said the other quote lol. They had 6 some people with different ping had 7 so they just gave everyone 7. If you cant admit that then there is no point arguing with a genji fanboy. Now double jump along.

Id say something like doomfist. Have tracer the good person from overwatch on owl and doom on contenders. Reaper could have been pretty cool too to add that duality of the overwatch universe. Basically anyone outside of overwatch more along the lines of talon.
Does it really matter though? Why do we have to keep finding reasons to hate Genji so much?

Doomfist's silhouette wouldn't fit at all, especially since most angles they could go with would result in the silhouette being simply a giant bulky arm covered in spikes.

Reaper's silhouette is literally a guy in a trench coat and hood, it's so generic.
