Hey bro, use the something called the "SCIENTIFIC NOTATION" for big numbers. Srsly!!!!

So, simulation theory?
Skeleton Gaming (1 day ago)
I think I might have solved your problem... Possibly, the Chrono Accelerator allows her to travel to an alternate universe, multiverse-style. She travels to a world where everything is exactly the same, except everything that Tracer does happens exactly three seconds before it would in the other universe and that Tracer was going through a recall at the same time, therefore she can replace that Tracer. She then proceeds with that knowledge to do battle with the team. Granted, I'm not a multiversal expert, so correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the best thing I could think of. Thank you.

but what if that light thing on her chest is preventing to her to fall into a blob?
Skeleton Gaming (1 day ago)
First of all, it's called a Chrono Accelerator. Second, that's not what it does. It keeps her in control of her time-jumps. If she doesn't have it, like when it wasn't built yet in her origin video or when Doomfist rips it off in his origin video, she loses control of her jumping through time, leading her to, "...disappear and reappear months later."

Wait. What if rewind works like: 1. Future Tracer sends information about what happens in this 3 seconds to Past Tracer 2. Past Tracer moves forward in time 3 seconds, but doesn't change place where she is. And if so, i don't have any clue what happened to Future Tracer. Did she burn to create energy to send that information? Or create alternative reality, and when she in one, Past Tracer is in the other? Because there can't be two Tracers in the same place. Please, think about it. PS. You have super videos, super channel, you are the best <3

am i the only one who thinks Tracer is the most obnoxious 2016 video game millennial trope in video games even to the point of making her lesbian for the sake of signalling and yet still playing exactly into the desires of fans. Super edgy.

Bruh, I understood this in 4th grade because of DC Comics and this channel. I don't blame you, I blame the people around you for not introducing you to the wonderful world of General Relativity.

She changes history, no loop - past Tracer is replaced by future Tracer, no cloning, past Tracer ceases to exist together with all the future which has to be rewritten and that is the problem. Or is it? Space-time would have to become something that evolves as a whole... many worlds? Tracer is not only jumping in (space)-time, but also between worlds and she has superb intuition never actually pressing the button, but somehow remembering doing so in future that never happened. Nothing against any theory, although improbable, but still not impossible. And because the button was never actually pressed, god knows what it does (maybe nothing).

The Science behind tracer is that she goes backwards in a way that is like jumping out of an airplane, it makes a vacuum of air and sucks you out.
Skeleton Gaming (1 day ago)
Here's the problem... If another player looks at Tracer when she recalls, she disappears and suddenly reapears. Or, in the "Alive" short, she reenacts every action she makes in the last three seconds, meaning she wouldn't have just shot herself backwards.

TIME LOOOOOOOOOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Factora Arch (8 days ago)
I have an explanation for Tracer's recall. What if she's been pulled out of the timeline entirely, thus existing in a temporally transcendent state? This would mean that paradoxes, time loops, and the like don't affect her in any way because she is no longer a part of the timeline of the Overwatch world, temporally residing in sort of time between times instead. She is running on her own timeline, or possibly not even affected by time at all. Therefore, when she recalls or whatever (sorry if I'm getting the name wrong, I don't know that much about Overwatch), all she's doing is rewinding the Overwatch timeline and what in that timeline affected her.

Shadowtrap2010 (10 days ago)
lol you thinking too hard... let theoretically said that she got blast into 4th dimension the her you see is a projection of herself, the stabilizer is anchor the image of her in this 3d just like you pause the video. just as you can bend the paper the 4th dimension she in can bend the law of physic of the 3rd dimension. also let say that her mind is no longer belong to this 3 dimension but reside in 4th it explain how she remember when her avatar is rewind... so pretty much we play tracer that playing herself in the overwatch world!

Ok. Austin, say that all again, really really slowly, in simple English.
Crazy Tosser (13 days ago)
Actually, i mb found answer on it(just an idea, no science): Return itself doesnt need to be a single action, but a combination of a certain things you mentioned in this video. If time-like curves work just like that, it means, she will travel to the exact time and position that she want to. So, what is only left is making her travel to the present with her initial state of mind and without changing position. Time travel to the future is easy, the only thing to do is write a trigger to Tracer`s thingie that it will time-travel her forwards when she returns by time-like curve(guess it may be possible with quantim mechanics). But transfering the state of mind will require some exotic technologies. As I see it, after sending information about her mind state to past, some tech starts to work during time-travel to present, rewriting her brain(partially, probably) to the state of initial present. Because it may last some time, it may also explain why she doesnt return immediately.

Never played Overwatch, so maybe it's normal for everyone who has to see the Borderlands "Vault Hunter" logo on that plane, but I have a question. Why is there a Vault Hunter symbol on that plane?

Kyle Jolly (19 days ago)
When you said the time travel of information the first thing that come to mind is an anime called Steins Gate where at some point in the series manages to transfer his mind so to speak to his previous self while still maintaining all that he knows.
Dante Banducci (19 days ago)
The more I listen to this math and science, the more the existence of a God outside of time seems likely.
ArcadrGaming (19 days ago)
The device is called a chronal accelerator in the lore. The other thing I have to point out is that Tracer didn’t reappear normally, she kept phasing in and out of our own timestream. The chronal accelerator or device, is helping Tracer to take advantage of the positive effects of the accident, like (from Ant-Man and The Wasp) Ghost’s suit that allows her/him to take advantage of her/his condition.

It’s not ‘Leeena’ (😔), it’s Lena. Only an American could make that mistake
Peter Bard (20 days ago)
It couldn't be time travel because if tracer is damaged before the reverse the damage persists afterwards
She could just be teleporting backwards....

So glad I found the "Austin Playlist" because he's my favorite. But Austin old buddy old pal... there is something you're not giving enough thought to in this video. You mentioned Information traveling in time... that is where I think you should have gone with this. I might be looking at it more from my imaginative writer perspective than from a science view, but that's why I watch you! The science gives me a headache but you make it funny. So anyway, look at how many of the heroes in overwatch that have at least SOME level of cybernetic enhancement. Whether it be a cybernetic eye (Ana) or hand (a bunch of them) or something more external like Meka suits and crusader armor. Tell me... don't you think that cell phones and radios would be antiques by the time period of OW? Doesn't it make sense that everyone has some type of subspace communicator chip in their head or something by this point? Wouldn't it also make sense that when Winston created the crono-accelerator, that he also upgraded Tracer's comm chip to be able to interface with the accelerator since we never actually see her physically press any buttons or anything to trigger her blinking or recall? So when she activates recall it actually sends a couple seconds of memory or info back in time to the comm chip. The name is pun... she's recalling evens that haven't happened yet... tho I think a better name for the ability would be deja vu. She senses a glitch in the matrix and sends some info back in time to fix it lol.
michael stepensky (22 days ago)
but austin :) , in the trailer when tracer breathed toxic(?) gas, some of it probably got into her neural system, yet she is perfectly fine after the recall. if she returned to her state before the recall, her neural connection should be affected too so she shouldn`t have her memories, and if somehow the neural system wasn`t affected, then shouldn`t her brain die from the gas? (sorry for bad language, i am not from the USA or UK)

xCedo (26 days ago)
Maybe, her suit isn’t traveling back in time. Maybe her suit is just recording her movements constantly and is just rewinding her actions by 4 seconds every time she uses recall. This would make it completely possible and she would keep her memories.

Tracer is a none event quantum mass. Capable of interacting with the universe. With a device that effects her connection to time and space.

Space is warped and time is bendable... it'l like a big ball of wibbley wobbley timey wimey... stuff. and tracer seems to be related to Yog Sothoth because past present and future are all one in her.... or maybe someone just doesn't speak science. who knows?

Present tracer copies itself , so the present tracer distort and gets remove from existence while the copied tracer which is copied so it is not a solid thing,is able to move back in time and reform the atoms of itself.Infomations or memory is not judged by atoms so the copied tracer still have the memory of the ‘present’ tracer

this Theory doesnt take in count (dont know if it was giving INfo at the time) that Tracer Without her (or Close by), probably modificated, new Slipstream-maschine is Unstable in time .. so how does that work !?

You can calm down for this Theory, cuz I think I got this one down, she's not traveling back in time, she's literally retracing are physical footsteps, and it seems that she does create a wormhole she does travel faster than the speed of light but she is not traveling back to her past self but rather self in reverse, it might be confusing but you'll have to read this a couple of times. # theorist

If traveled near the speed of light for 30 seconds, she would be able to travel a distance that takes light 8.5 minutes to travel 30,000 times? What?
