Terry Crews visited the "Blizzard" headquarters this week to meet with the "Overwatch" team, sparking speculation that he may end up voicing a yet unannounced character. This sparked a lot of excitement from Reddit's Overwatch community, with the thread recording 1222 responses at the time of writing.

"I would love to play Doomfist," as stated by Terry Crews, in an interview with Bizzard.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Expendables star threw fuel on the rumor-fire by visiting the Overwatch team at Blizzard headquarters. Nothing has been confirmed from either Terry Crews or Blizzard, but fan speculation is running high.

Meanwhile, "Winter Wonderland" event up and running in Overwatch, fans has taken early, hard-hitting concerns to Blizzard's forums, namely involving Mei's hideous new outfit. Though she now totes her own "Snowball Offensive" mode, the character was largely overlooked in previous events held earlier in the year. A lumbering red coat garnished with fluffy white trim and bright green embellishments, the outfit is boisterous to say the least.

"We just sort of make a gut call based off of what we think is cool. Coolness is very subjective, and based off of the community reaction it seems like our gauge was off on this one," as stated by Jeff Kaplan the game director of Overwatch.

The game developers thought that it was pretty special and they had done it specifically based on community suggestions from months ago when people were speculating that they might have a winter event.

Mei's winter coat has incited rage, if only because of its status as a "Legendary" skin. While players expect these designs to be particularly edgy and cutthroat, this one is actually kind of fun-loving. "Blizzard" is aiming to turn things around with "something pretty awesome" slated for early 2017. Beyond that, the company hasn't specified what exactly is in store for dedicated Overwatch players
