Overwatch’s Tracer Victory Pose Removed After Fan Complaint

It seems that one of the new victory poses for the hero Tracer is causing a lot of controversy with fans. The “over-the-shoulder” pose shows Tracer in a manner that seems to be too sexualized for some players.

The player named Fipps went to Overwatch‘s forum to complain about the pose and sparked a heated discussion among those that are for and against the racy pose.

If you haven’t seen the pose yet, we’ve embedded it below. Take a look.

Some of you might be fine with it, some of you might not, either way, Blizzard saw the complaint and decided to remove the victory pose immediately with Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan responding to the outcry over the change.

“We understand that not everyone will agree with our decision, and that’s okay,” Kaplan said in a statement. “That’s what these kinds of public tests are for. This wasn’t pandering or caving, though. This was the right call from our perspective, and we think the game will be just as fun the next time you play it.”

You can read his full statement here.

Whether you agree with the removal of the pose or not, in the end of the day, it’s the developer’s decision to include or remove whatever is in the game.

Rather than worrying about what you might get from Overwatch, why not think about what you can get from Overwatch? Specifically the Overwatch PC Edition from OffGamers which is available for pre-order at a discounted price!
