One of Overwatch’s heroes is getting a name change, after his namesake was dismissed from the company earlier this month.

In a statement released by the Overwatch development team, it was revealed that McCree will be getting a new name, and that the company will refrain from naming characters after employees in the future.

Blizzard lead level designer Jesse McCree, for whom the character is named, was one of a number of employees dismissed from the company earlier this month. While no reasons were given for the dismissals, they came just after the company was sued by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, who accuse Activision Blizzard of maintaining a “frat boy culture” rife with sexual harassment and unequal treatment.

“We built the Overwatch universe around the idea that inclusivity, equity, and hope are the building blocks of a better future,” reads the statement.”They are central to the game and to the Overwatch team.

“As we continue to discuss how we best live up to our values and to demonstrate our commitment to creating a game world that reflects them, we believe it’s necessary to change the name of the hero currently known as McCree to something that better represents what Overwatch stands for.”

McCree’s new name has yet to be revealed, with a planned narrative arc for September was already going to feature McCree. As such, the narrative has been changed to include McCree’s name change, and as such has been delayed until later this year.

Instead of the narrative arc, Overwatch will instead release a new map in September.

“Work on these updates is underway, and they are just a part of our ongoing commitment to honest reflection and making whatever changes are necessary to build a future worth fighting for.

“We know that actions speak louder than words, and we hope to show you our commitment to making Overwatch a better experience in-game and continue to make our team the best it can be. ”

Survival of The Fittest 08/28/2021 | Baltimore Ravens Roster

russellstreetreport.com 29 August, 2021 - 12:40am

Tonight’s game down in Landover against the WFT marks the last audition for many players vying for limited available spots on the Ravens 53-man roster. A few of the positional battles are hotly contested – the competition is fierce and the victors have yet to be determined.

There’s always the possibility that some players who sit firmly on the bubble, could slide through waivers and land on the Ravens practice squad. Some could be claimed by other teams. Such is the journey of NFL hopefuls.

The bubble players who make the 53 are guaranteed $660,000, spread out over 17 paychecks. Those who land on the practice squad will earn $9,200 per week. Veterans who agree to remain on the practice squad if it’s offered, can earn $14,000 per week. Either way, the pay to land on the 53 is substantially greater.

Teams must trim down to 53 by 4PM on Tuesday, August 31. But even if The Turk doesn’t come calling, spots at the bottom of a roster remain volatile. The juxtapositioning continues right up to the start of the regular season. Those who barely make the final cut remain vulnerable, particularly if other teams cut loose a player or two who the Ravens see as a fit.

Tonight I’ll be focused upon these positional battles:

Defensive Back: Chris Westry has had a very productive camp but he’ll have to fend off a few others who have had impressive summers such as Ar’Darius Washington, Nigel Warrior and Geno Stone.

Offensive Line: Who will win the starting nod at LG? Ben Powers seems to have the edge right now but the battle is tightly contested, if for no other reason than NO ONE has really stepped up to snatch the opportunity. Ben Bredeson, Patrick Mekari and Trystan Colon will determine this survival of the fittest.

Wide Receiver: Some believe that there is still a position to win here. Don’t be so sure. I think there are six players who will shape the WR room and at this point it would be a significant upset if those six don’t include: Marquise Brown, Sammy Watkins, Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, James Proche and Tylan Wallace. Bateman could start the season on IR but that doesn’t necessarily mean that his roster spot will be replaced by another receiver until he comes off IR.

ILB: The Ravens are down to four inside linebackers. Three are givens: Patrick Queen, Malik Harrison and Chris Board. Will Kristian Welch stick? I peg his chances at about 25%, or less. The Ravens aren’t a traditional defense and it could be argued that their base is the nickel. Wink could employ one of his capable DB’s during game rotations to absorb snaps and still compete effectively. Starting the season with 3 ILB’s would not be a surprise.

I’m sure you remember former Ravens DT Lional Dalton, aka “Jelly”. Recently while re-watching the Ravens Hard Knocks on HBO from 2001, the Ravens equipment manager teased Jelly for having the team’s biggest head, literally. The unflappable, easy going defender took it all in stride and he was a very serviceable and complementary piece of Marvin Lewis’ defenses from 1998 through 2001.

Recently Jelly took to social media to share his personal struggles – his acute need for a new kidney. Ravens fans rallied, spread the word of Jelly’s quest while keeping him in their prayer. Eventually it worked.

We often condemn social media platforms as a haven for hate speech and trolling – and it is those things far too often. But every now and then, when people come together to achieve a common goal, social media can shine and it did exactly that with Lional. Here he is from his hospital bed after his transplant surgery.

A special message from Lional to his @Twitter followers. Please continue to post messages for him. They 100% raise his spirits. He’s eternally grateful for all of you. @Ravens #RavensFlock @nfl #nfl @TDianeD @NFLPAFmrPlayers #billsmafia #ChiefsKingdom #SteelersNation #Broncos pic.twitter.com/oB1KLRtZHE

Continued prayers for Jelly. Here’s to his full recovery and his body’s complete acceptance of his new kidney. God bless!
