A female's clothed backside is offensive. Killing each other is not.

...In an FPS, where one does not even see the character avatar, only its disembodied, anonymous hands / generic floating firearm ! xD

I don't agree with the original outrage, but I'm not this naive either.

How is it offensive? They changed the pose and it shows even more, and resembles a pin up girl. This whole this is over now

Blizz responded to a non controversy with a non solution. Seems like everyone is a loser in this scenario

It doesn't simply resemble a pin-up girl, it's a blatant rip-off of pin-up art. By pandering to SJW's they are potentially beckoning copyright infringement suits that could remove this game from existance.

People complained about the pose because it was out of character for Tracer. Now it's a more playful pose that fits her style.

^ What "style"? ...All the characters are just anonymous, disembodied, floating hands!

Oh come on.

There's no way in hell they'd be able to get any kind of copyright infringement suit for this. If anything, Blizz could write it off as an homage to the artist.

This.

It wasn't "SJW" bulls***. The original post that started it all even said "It looks more like a pose Widowmaker would make."
