Content of the article: "Hi, devs: could you guys please at least give us a hint as to when the upcoming Butcher rework will finally arrive? Like letting us know whether he’ll be here before this year is over?"
Last night, I played a bots game where the Butcher AI was using an unreleased Spectral skin, a skin which I first found a reference to months ago in a post by u/sPindOoLu (where they also uncovered the then-unreleased Greek goddess Cassia).
However, it has now been months since the Cassia teaser eventually culminated in that skin actually being released, but there is still no sign of Butcher's skin also finally being released whatsoever.
The reason I bring this issue up isn't to whine about cosmetics per se, but because the Spectral skin reminded me of an even older tease with Butch, one which the devs themselves were kind enough to give me last December: that they were actively working on a rework for his entire kit.
Now, I could be wrong as an overall dumbass here, but it seems to me that Butcher is a bit more straightforward in his kit and general gameplay loop than say, the infamously work-in-progress D.Va, so is it safe to assume that we should have heard at least some mention of his rework by now (assuming the pace of development mentioned back in December held steady up until now)?
As it stands, he is literally the only reason I still play HOTS, so if the devs put him on a backshelf because of development hell or COVID-19 logistics or whatever, I would at least appreciate a simple heads-up so I could take a break from this game for a while. It's come to the point where as soon as any patchnotes are released, I literally scroll down immediately to the melee-assassin section again and again, and it goes without saying that so far I've been doing this for no payoff whatsoever.
Sorry for sounding so worked up about something this seemingly trivial, but I've kinda burned myself out after getting excited for basically every single patch since December. I think it’s safe to say that in hindsight, it was probably better to not know about a rework at all than to be waiting this long for one, with arguably no end in sight for the wait either. 😞
