  1. Italy has a ton of maps, could be cool to have an Italian hero.

    Also I’m from South Africa, would be awesome to have a South African hero

  2. Who is the second German hero?
    I mean Reinhardt is sure. But who else?

  3. For some reason I though Roadhog was from New Zealand. Is it confirmed that he’s an Aussie?

  4. Thought it said players and that it was a really funny shit post

  5. I’d say maybe Persian, Turkish, Thai, or Malay? Eastern European would be interesting to see as well.

  6. I wonder what a portuguese hero would look like!

  7. Who is from Malaysia/Singapore? Can’t really determine the position on the map.

  8. who is the hero from canada?

  9. I’m hoping Mauga will come, which would likely bring in Samoa, as I’m pretty sure Mauga is Samoan. This would also bring in the first pacific island nation and second Oceanic nation overall after Australia. They don’t get too much representation so that’s nice.

    Apart from that I would also like to see a Vietnamese hero.

  10. Just gonna do the kiwis dirty like that huh

  11. It would be cool to have another Pacific Islander hero, since Roadhog filling that role is kind of a stretch

  12. philippines. no video game that i can recall has a filipino character (or superhero or main villain blahblahblah).

    edit: today i learned that Valorant has a Filipino character, Neon.

  13. We need polish hero preferably the wizard from Magnaci i Czarodzieje

  14. I’d like a hero from Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic. Caribbean Spanish is so different from Castellano or Mexican- video games have bloat of Spanish Spanish, and just in recent years started having Mexican Spanish. Seeing a Caribbean Spanish character would be cool, it’s very rare in video games.

  15. Man, I know folks are going to be excited for locales they are most familiar with, but slightly disheartening to see people look at this map and go: “See the biggest cluster on that little peninsula? We need more around there”

    Anyhow, South America, Africa, Middle East, and Southeast Asia all could use some serious love. All four are such varied regions. Hopefully they’re not solely repped by Brazil, Nigeria, Egypt, and a robot who imprinted on a Singaporean woman respectively forever.

  16. Spain, Finland, Norway, South Africa, another South American country, Philippines

  17. Why not have an Icelandic hero?

  18. Want a Portuguese one but at the same time I would probably nitpick every lil inconsistency or unfitting thing about them so maybe it’s better if they keep doing heroes from countries I’m not from.

  19. looking at the map id have to say id like to see a hero from the middle east.

  20. South America and Sub-Saharan Africa are severely underrepresented. like every country is lumped into generalized “Latin” and “African”

  21. Id like a Scottish hero but I just know Blizzard would use an American actor doing an awful accent

  22. South America is grossly underrepresented. We have no hero from Hispanic South America

  23. Madagascar.

    Gotta see the King Julian clutch the objective

  24. Mediterranean and Middle East needs more representation. Someone from Central Asia or the Steppe would be sick and a good concept to work with also (think horseback nomadic tribes)

  25. Not so much country, but I’d go with Native American, Aztec, Incan, or Mayan.

  26. I think the areas that are most underrepresented as far as overwatch heroes go are southern europe, western asia, central asia, eastern africa, southern africa, and polynesia. There are no heroes from these regions! I think they should add greek, persian, Uzbek, ethiopian, and South African characters! Mauga will likely be a Polynesian character they add to the game 🙂

    Some other areas that have very few characters are eastern Europe, southeast Asia, and South / Central America.

    Most overrepresented are north america, western Europe, and east asia, probably because most players are from these regions

  27. I want a Hispanic hero who isn’t from Mexico

  28. I’d LOVE to get a hero from Croatia or any countries surrounding it. I know that’s never happening tho haha

  29. I hope to someday see a Thai hero. But we don’t even have the game with a Thai version even though there’s a big Thai community so…

  30. One from Germany, one from Switzerland.

    Sad Austrian noices

  31. Wait a Minute, who besides Reinhardt is German?

  32. Someone from an obscure east european small country would be hilarious.

  33. Taiwan.

  34. Iceland. Have it ice themed. Mei isn’t cutting it. More ice puns needed.

  35. Gimmie a South African district 9 lookin motherfucker

  36. Turkey: Blizzard literally has Emre Sarioğlu in their pocket since 4 years but don’t release him 🙁

  37. Same countries, but make an indigenous hero. I’d love to see a Native American support…could have a bow and be mechanically like Hanzo, but heals like Ana. I’d love to see an indigenous hero regardless though

  38. Ukraine, Finland, Mongolia, Argentina

  39. Not a country but how bout Puerto Rico. I feel like we’re the forgotten hispanics sometimes.

  40. I’d like a Welsh hero

  41. As an Estonian I have a personal dream of seeing an Estonian hero in Overwatch. I even made a concept of one in the Tank role, plays similarly to Reinhardt by wielding a longsword and focusing on melee combat.

  42. Technically Numbani is a new city-state like country (similar to Andorra, Monaco, or Singapore) near Nigeria, not in Nigeria itself.

    Echo was created in Switzerland, and never actually was in Singapore, though she gets her personality from a Singaporean, so I guess it’s complicated.

  43. There’s like 4 Italian maps and no (playable) Italian heroes so I’ll go with that

  44. I want more Moira Irish Voice Lines

  45. Kazakhstan

  46. Havent played in forever, and never knew theres a dutch hero. Who is it?
