What is annoying me about Lúcio representation in Overwatch lately is this:
I saw it around here and on twitter non-brazilians cheering this small bit of Lore but for me it’s “Ah a stereotype”.
It’s just Blizzard sweeping under the rug they changed Lúcio nationality before the game released, because who knows? maybe they noticed they didn’t have any character that could represent Latin America.
I said it and I’ll say it again: He doesn’t represent Brazil. He doesn’t have any skins that ties to Brazil’s culture. BRAZIL’S CUTURE, NOT STEREOTYPES.
Yeah, soccer is a national sport, but you can’t tell a story about an entire nation through a sport. A sport that was brough here by a brazilan guy when he visited England back in 1800.
You simply cannot.
Then we have a bit of his background and his relationship with Symmetra that instead of cement who he is, actually make us look at his design with that feeling of “can’t relate”.
