Orisa, the third hero to be added to Overwatch since launch, is live now. It feels like people have been less interested in the new tank character when compared to the two previous hero launches - Ana and Sombra - but I think there's a lot to be excited about.

Truth be told, I adore Orisa - her blend of abilities appeals directly to my play style and, seemingly unlike a good portion of the internet, I really don't mind the fact she looks like a character cars would invent in order to scare their children into behaving at night.

To celebrate Orisa's arrival, I pulled together seven reasons she's my new favourite - with apologies to Lucio, Mercy, Pharah and D.Va, of course.

I'm still worried Orisa is going to get nerfed, by the way - those cooldown timers seem really generous. Just me?
