Baptiste arrived last week and his little backpack gadget is gold. Superb.
These all look great and these heroes definitely deserve this treatment. I mean Golden BOB is a bit much but
All these changes were made so these heroes could show off their gold. All those hard earned CPs. That’s great. However, can we look at Symmetra.
Fan (no gold)
The game will be 3 years old this May and Symmetra has yet to be given a victory pose or highlight intro featuring her golden gun. Why not?
The requirement for getting gold seems to be that it’s part of your kit that lets you use your ULT.
Well, Symmetra’s photon glove makes her turrets “from light into being”.
Those turrets do 50dps each, 150dps in a car wash. Her glove makes her Teleporter which is an amazing mobility tool for bypassing chokes, TP bombing, and gaining the high ground.
Her glove also lets her create her map spanning 5000hp wall.
So why isn’t her glove gold? Even just having that little glint of gold would make people think twice and as she has her gloves in EVERY victory pose and EVERY highlight intro it would be a simple fix to give Symmetra mains something to show for their hard work.
Roadhog has a golden hook (he’s in serious need of a golden gun victory pose as well btw, as is Mei and Winston).
Symmetra has not had one but two massive reworks and she’s never been given any gold. It’s really diseheartening everytime a new hero comes out and they get something and she has nothing.
It’s really disheartening seeing events come and go only for Symmetra to remain without a victory pose or highlight intro that shows off her gold.
She really deserves a golden glove, especially if you want her to be taken seriously as a hero.
And i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again; her VA, Anjali Bhimani agrees.
This is my hill and I will die on it. Please just acknowledge this post and if anyone else agrees you know what to do.
This has been asked for for a long time. Don’t let all these people down.
Doomfist got a second Archives Highlight Intro. Symmetra got a voice line saying “Who knows what the future holds?”
Is that shade, gurl?
EDIT: May 2, 2019
Still no Dev comment, response, acknowledgement. Will this change? “Who knows what the future holds?”

She got a voiceline for Anniversary. A very good one. Still no Victory Pose or Highlight Intro with her gun.

This happened and I am still buzzing (no pun intended)
If the golden gloves are still on the table here’s a great piece of work made by Minerrow

AND Sigma literally got golden gauntlets. I can’t even make this stuff up now.

Michael Chu said he’ll pass the suggestion along!

We do get SOME nice things. Expensive things. But nice things.
November 5, 2019
With the announcement of Overwatch 2 I can only hope that the art team take the golden glove into consideration with Symmetra’s OW2 design.
December 10, 2019
Like. She looks great. But. Her gun?
April 14, 2020
Need I say anything at this point? Echo is launched. She has what we want. Devs don’t respond. Repeat ad nauseum.
May 12, 2020
Moira mains want a golden backpack and I get it. because sleeves.
May 12, 2020
So this seems to happen now in practice range when Symmetra uses her Have A Seat emote. Does this bode well for a Victory pose this anniversary with her gun? I hope so.
May 31, 2020
Seriously, Blizzard. Four years. Can you just add this pose to the base lootbox and we’ll call it a day?

To add insult to injury, this was Symmetra’s victory pose in promotional materials.
