Hold onto your butts, because Blizzard just teased the return of Uprising. I know that many are still recuperating from last year (myself included). Some may even have mental and emotional scars; but we can get through this together!

So look past the bickering, blaming, name-calling, no-showing, crying, screaming, raging, ranting, de-friending, trolling, or showboating that anyone did last year. For the person who may have been your enemy yesterday, could be your enemy tomorrow.


Uprising returns Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 (most likely). Let the speculations commence compute

The teaser says the uprising event was 7 years ago, but a few times in the video you’ll see it “glitch” and quickly show 8 years. There’s a good chance we may get a new mission entirely.

From what I've heard, the common theory is that it'll be a new Blackwatch mission taking place in Dorado.

Also, lest we forget that when they bring back Uprising, they have to bring back All Heroes Mode which was completely separate. So that would be three altogether. Maybe four.

Ummmm, for me only Uprising achievements left. Never played before. I hope it is not going to be something crazy difficult. I really want to finish this game and never play it again untill odd character achievements. Good luck to everyone. :)

It easily has the hardest achievement in the game. Definitely not impossible though.

From what I've heard, the Legendary requirements have been modified to allow people to earn it with any heroes they wish. Don't quote me though.

If this is true, then it will most likely be a breeze. Bastion, Lucio, Rein, and 76 would run roughshod.

I hope they don't add a "beat Retribution on Legendary" achievement... I hope against hope they can modify the existing achievement to "beat an Archive mission on Legendary".

Though, the legendary cheev is the orisa spray, right? Kinda makes me think that's not gonna happen...

God damn, the flash backs...

On a side note, I played 80+ hours of Reinhardt during uprising last year, anyone need a rien?

Edit: now that I look at the list, they did seperate cheeves for Halloween 17' '18, and winter '17, '18. Last year was "Uprising", I suspect this year will be called "Retribution" (hold your sarcasm, please, I'm not finished speculating). Looking at last year, we can for certain expect 2 cheeves, beat Retribution with all 4 regular characters, and then 8 heros from All heros mode. I suspect that like last year there will be a map/mission specific cheev similar to pushing the payload with more than 80% hp (thank fucking God for that despawn cheese before they patched it). That's 3 cheevs, putting us at 99, and assuming 15gs, 1585gs for OW. An conversation with Epilepsy earlier had both of us speculate that they might round it off at 100 cheevs, and 1600gs. There will definitely be a "Beat Retribution on Hard" this year, so there, 100 cheevs, 1600 gs. But I suspect that there will be a beat it on Expert, and if that's so, then what's stopping them from putting in a legendary?

Junkenstien y1 was, what, easy, normal, hard? Right? Got cheves for doing normal and hard, yes, then y2 updated the difficulties, hard became legendary, and they introduced expert mode, and a cheev for that. Uprising was easy, normal, expert, legendary, yeah? Retribution will be the same...

I'm making myself depressed...

All I can hope is that they heard the utter rage we had last year at Legendary achievements and don't tie the mode to one... Though that's not looking good...

I need.to cry now...

I hope the alter the existing achievement to say "beat an archives mission on Legendary", but looking at how the updated junkenstien, if there are individual difficultly cheevs, then there most likely cwill be a legendary....

I was watching YouTube last night where Kephrii and xQc had Rein, Orisa, Bastion and Zen doing Uprising Legendary in All Heroes mode and that seemed a decent team comp too.
