After thousands of submissions and loads of suggestions (some good, some questionable…but hey, it’s all part of the fun–even “Mascot McMascotface”!). We decided that Scorch was the perfect name for our mascot.
Here’s Scorch’s backstory:
Scorch was born from the excess energy of all the gamers from around the world coming together to play games. The more games people play, the more powerful Scorch becomes. Scorch is a digital creature who travels from game to game to team up with the best gamers in the world, make friends to go on adventures with, and find the ultimate loot.
These other suggestions were not far behind in our consideration set:
All of our winners have been contacted. If we haven’t heard from you, please email us back so we can get your prize to you.
Again, we were so impressed with all of the submissions. Thank you for participating and let’s give a shout-out of congrats to our winners and a welcome to Scorch (who will be making appearances from time to time)!
Earlier this year we launched a rebrand for Plays. This included a new logo, mascot, color palette, icons, styles, messaging, and a lot more. Click here to read more about the rebrand.
Today we’re announcing a contest to name the Plays mascot.
We’ve got tons of prizes for people who submit mascot name suggestions.
- Handmade bespoke mascot pillow (grand prize)
- Plays mascot stickers
- 1 Plays hoodie
- 1 Plays hat
- 1 Plays water bottle
We’ll award the grand prize to the person who submits the winning name. 4 runner-ups will be selected at random to win the other prizes. If more than one person submits the winning name, we will randomly pick the winner.
To enter, just fill out the form below. It’s as easy as that! Please submit your ideas by August 1.
If you haven’t heard the news, Mercy’s resurrection ability is getting a big overhaul. Mercy will no longer be able to use her ultimate to resurrect multiple teammates. Her ultimate ability will be replaced with the new “Valkyrie” ultimate, which increases her damage, range, and allows her to fly freely. Battle Mercy mains rejoice!
However, this means that we must bid farewell to multi-resurrects. But dry your tears, Mercy fans, we’re giving multi-resurrects a proper send off with a contest! Two winners will receive the ultimate Mercy prize pack!
To enter, upload an Overwatch video of you resurrecting 2 or more teammates. Add the tag #GoodbyeMultiRes. You can use our Overwatch integration to help you easily find your Mercy resurrections.
You may submit multiple videos for submission. The more you submit, the better chance you’ll have to win! The winners will be judged and chosen by the Plays.tv staff.
Here’s what’s up for grabs:
2 lucky winners will receive:
- Mercy Nendoroid
- Mercy Print by Steph Lew
- “Have Mercy” Tee
- $20 Battle.net Gift Card
- Contest will run from August 30th, 2017 – September 19th, 2017
- Videos must be submitted to Plays.tv to qualify
- Videos must be from Overwatch and must contain a resurrection of 2 or more team mates.
- Videos must be using the Plays.tv Overwatch integration (will be automatically tagged with a “resurrection event”)
- Submissions must contain the #GoodbyeMultiRes tag — you may edit this into your description if you forget to add it.
- Submissions must be received by 11:59 PM PST on September 19th, 2017
Remember, HEROES NEVER DIE, so get out there and get some multi-resurrects while you still can! Did someone call a doctor?
