In the vibrant world of Overwatch 2, heroes rise and fall, and none know this better than Brigitte. Once a force to be reckoned with, this valiant support hero has faced the ebb and flow of balance changes, leaving some players yearning for her long-lost glory.
Cast your mind back to the early days when Brigitte burst onto the scene. In a meta dominated by dive, her arrival in Season 10 of the original game turned everything on its head. With her versatile kit and surprising damage output, she blurred the lines between support and tank, wreaking havoc in the ranks. Climbing to the Top 500 became a breeze for those who exploited her power.
But as time passed, the developers sought to rein in Brigitte's might, bringing balance to the battlefield. The once-unstoppable juggernaut gradually faded from the limelight, as her pick rate plummeted, leaving Overwatch veterans reminiscing about her former glory.
Now, a lone voice rises from the community, questioning if the developers harbor a secret resentment towards our beefy paladin lady. In a heartfelt post on Reddit, one player laments the absence of Battle Pass skins for Brigitte, a nine-season drought that seems to mock her loyal fans.
"As a Brig main, I'm saddened. My stalwart warrior deserves some affection," the post reads, echoing the sentiments of many who hold Brigitte dear. Admittedly, she has received a few new skins during the course of Overwatch 2, such as the striking Antifragile BB and the regal Royal Captain Brigitte. Alas, these treasures can only be found in the game's shop, not the coveted Battle Pass.
"I'm not particularly fond of Brig, but this is outrageous! Blizzard must have a grudge against her, or so it seems," exclaims one player, voicing the frustration shared by many.
"Perhaps it's revenge for her tumultuous launch," suggests another, hinting at the memories of Brigitte's past dominance.
Yet, amid the cries of neglect, one cannot help but notice the lavish treatment bestowed upon heroes like Kiriko and Mercy. Their skins, showered upon them like confetti, leave Brigitte's followers feeling left out in the cold.
"The shop skins are fine, but it's disheartening to see no Battle Pass content for our beloved crusader. Typical Blizzard, favoring Kiri and Mercy while the rest of us suffer," laments a player, capturing the sentiment of a disillusioned community.
The consensus is clear among players, with one asserting that Mercy, the undeniable "money maker," receives new skins almost every season, while Brigitte has been left with a mere victory pose from the Battle Pass.
Oh, Brigitte, stalwart paladin of Overwatch, fear not, for your devoted fans stand by your side, rallying for your cause. Let the winds of change blow through the halls of Blizzard, bringing forth a Battle Pass adorned with splendid skins tailored to your noble spirit.
In the unpredictable realm of Overwatch 2, heroes may falter, but hope remains eternal. So, dear Brigitte, steel yourself for the battles to come, for the tide may yet turn in your favor. And when that moment arrives, when the Battle Pass unveils its long-awaited treasures, your devoted fans shall rejoice, adorned in the radiant glory befitting their beloved crusader.
Until then, let your hammer strike true, your shield withstand the onslaught, and your indomitable spirit inspire us all. For the day shall come when Brigitte, the valiant paladin, reclaims her rightful place in the hearts and skins of Overwatch 2.
