This was a really great thread to read - I genuinely appreciate the sentiments from both sides of the fence, here.
For those of you who are already as excited about Orphea as we are - that is so awesome! Can’t wait to see what power she has in your hands!
For those of you who are apathetic to lore and find yourself on the fence, that’s cool too! I encourage you to try her. I think she is one of the most fun heroes I’ve ever played. Kyle did an amazing job designing her kit for a variety of playstyles, and heavily took into consideration not only how it feels to play as her, but how it feels to play against her. She’s super approachable to pick up and get going with, but I think you’ll find that to be as much of a beast as you see in our videos, that bar is much higher than you think it is.
For those of you who vehemently hate what we’ve done here, you know what? That’s cool too. We have no shortage of amazing characters from our history that we are excited to keep on sharing with you. I’d encourage you to try her out, still, but the best part of the Nexus is that there’s always something new on the horizon.
Thank you so much, everyone, for your passion for this game.
GLHF, see you in the Nexus.
