New map and Capture the Flag mode coming soon!

Uighur Ethnic Dancers

The event will, of course, include new skins and the return of Capture the Flag mode, but this time around we're also getting an all-new map! One side will, therefore, be filled with an ancient temple, while the other side will be more contemporary. Instead, we're getting a new sudden death mechanic whereby both team's flags move closer to the centre of the map.

The Capture the Flag mode itself is seeing major changes that'll kick off alongside the event. Blizzard received a lot of feedback from the community on capture the flag and this new map is the result of that feedback. However, tomorrow begins the Year of the Dog celebration, and the Overwatch team has something good things cooked up.

Fed's Yellen will be part of Brookings Establishment
Yet many of Yellen's critics contend that low rates have helped swell unsafe bubbles in such assets as stocks and perhaps home prices.

As expected, the event will bring with it a hoard of new Legendary skins - some old, and some new - along with a new Capture map.

This is how: slowly, incrementally adding onto the foundation laid two years ago with new and diverse content. Think of Overwatch less as a standalone game and more as a platform for absorbing players into its fandom, slowly but steadily branching out into new avenues of engagement, new ways for people to enjoy the Overwatch universe.

State of emergency in Maldives to 'probe coup' as judges arrested
The decree gives the government sweeping powers to make arrests, search and seize property, and restricts freedom of assembly. Abdullah Riyaz, a former Commissioner of Police said, "People of Maldives are demanding the President to step down".

A couple rule changes have also been devised to ensure that CTF games are more engaging and less likely to end in draws. Currently, Blizzard is planning a competitive season dedicated to Capture the Flag that will last four weeks.

The Year of the Dog is now upon us and you know what that means: it's time for an Overwatch event! Kaplan said players voiced their discontent for draws, adding that they can feel "anti-climatic". He has assured us that the mode has been tweaked so that there will always be a victor based on a sudden death mode. What's more, flag pick-ups are now instantaneous and certain abilities (such as those providing invulnerability or great mobility) will cause the player to drop the flag.

Seven Turkish soldiers die in Afrin offensive in Syria
In a village called Jeleme in the countryside of Afrin, civilians told Kurdistan 24 a Turkish military airstrike destroyed a school in their village.

One thing to keep in mind is that while any new Overwatch character skins introduced through the Lunar New Year 2018 event will only be found through loot boxes, the skins that were released alongside the event in 2017 should be purchasable with standard in-game currency. If you land in the top 500 at the end of the season, Blizzard will award you a spray and player icon. However, Kaplan also assured that Genji and Mercy will be two of the heroes that will be receiving one legendary skin each from the six that are going to be available.
