Overwatch Retirement Day

I reached level 1201 in Overwatch last week, which got me a useless gold portrait border and a good point at which to stop playing the game so obsessively for a while. Overwatch has always been fun (and it's the only game I ever played contiguously for over 2 years) but like Hearthstone before it, it got to a point where I was mostly playing it because it was familiar, fit into the baby-nap-sized holes in my schedule, and I didn't have to think too hard about it. Recently, queue times are getting longer, the community is getting grumpier, and I'm not improving nearly as much as I want to. I'll still play a game now and again, but it will no longer be the default thing to do whenever free time exists.

To mark this occasion, here are the last few Junkrat Play of the Game videos I had sitting on my hard drive which prove that Junkrat is clearly the best character in the game.

Next up to fill the Overwatch-shaped gap in my life: dive further into Divinity: Original Sin 2 (a game with actual progression and a storyline) and reacquire all of my AWS certifications that expired while I was working for that startup last year!
