    This sounds like an Overwatch OC trying to squish it's way into someone's canon backstory.

    wouldn't it be cool if the entire narration for this clip was voiced by the hamster himself? i mean... the art that is representing the story in this clip is doing a good job visualizing his story :)

    Blizzard Logic:
    A hyper-intelligent hamster from the moon with the intelligence required to both construct and pilot a deadly mech made out of scrap and a busted escape pod: Completely plausible and realistic.

    I love this hero, but it would make more sense to just call him Hammond in-game (like on the hero roster or POTG) because Wrecking Ball is just the mech. In a way, you play more as Hammond operating the mech, like D.Va, than Wrecking Ball or the MEKA. Thats just my take on it tho... Hammond is amazing either way :D

    Hammond is the one who released all of the scientists into the vacuum of space. He truly is an absolute scum bag.

    “Journal entry: 1963/4. Harold Winston. Status update on specimen 8:
    By now, we’re all used to our super intelligent gorillas on the colony, but the hamster, hehe, we’ve named him Hammond, continues to be one of our biggest surprises.
    Even though he’s grown from the genetic modification, we have more trouble keeping track of him than any of the other animals. Somehow, he managed to get out of his cage, AGAIN. It took us days to find him.
    I can’t help but wonder what it is he’s looking for when gets out there. He’s shown impressive problem-solving skills and adaptability to new situations. And he’s overcome all the challenges that have been placed in front of him.
    I for one can’t wait to see what trouble the little guy gets up to next.”

    They're taking shots at Richard Hammond from Top Gear because he's so short. First Jeremy Clarkson calls Hammond a hamster repeatedly, then Blizzard create a hamster character they call Hammond. Coincidence? I think not!

    Intelligent hamster? Seriously blizzard?? At least pick an animal that's already intelligent. Replace the rodent with a corgi and rework the robot to be more pupper less hamster ball. Also plz add the ability to revert to previous versions of the game and server for version so we can escape every release and re work of the past year, thx form everyone who played during the first 2 seasons. Alternatively just remove Moria, Hampton, and Brigon from the game.
