Blizzard swapped Tracer’s butt pose in Overwatch with a… different butt pose

Right, luv.

We’re sure you’re all still watching Overwatch’s #tracergate with keen anticipation, so you’ll be pleased to know that Blizzard replaced Tracer’s infamous “butt pose” with the latest patch.

Tracer's original butt pose
Original pose

Player complaints over the original pose of the quirky kid sister character were addressed last week by Game Director Jeff Kaplan, who said his team wasn’t comfortable the butt pose either and would be changing it, which of course sent the usual suspects into a frothing fight over “artists’ rights,” by which they mean artists’ obligations to render all the butts. ALL the butts.

Well, the butt pose people are going to be happy about the (side-butt?) replacement pose that is apparently Blizzard’s solution, which is plainly derived from pin-up art, most likely a piece by Alberto Vargas, as Twitter user @christianmccrea noted.

What do you folks think — is this an improvement for the character’s personality, or is it just more awkward than the original? Just keep it clean down in the comments, guys.

Tch. I thought they were going to improve the pose to something a bit more practical not something stupid. Well there goes my hope Blizzard finally got their act together and stopped being a bunch of horny teenager boys.
