It has been my goal in life to become an astronaut. Now I can say I have reached it.
The new OW map named "Horizon Lunar Colony" is a Assault map based on the moon with tons of little fun things grandpa Jeff gave us to play with this update.
ATTACK AND DEFENDING
Jeff told us that this map is going to feature some excellent high ground spots for both attackers and defenders.(GET YOUR WIDOW MAINS READY)
He has told us that there are going to be some great routes to take, to make things exciting.
He also compared this map to hanamura in the fact that there are going to be more routes and more flanking positions.(That is amazing to me)
There is going to be a place to see where Winston grew up(SO CUTE OML)
THERE IS GOING TO BE LOW GRAVITY FOR PART OF THE MAP GET READY TO FLY PEOPLE
The OW team also told us that they are going to be letting us use gravity feature in our arcade settings for a short period of time. He said gravity options so maybe even extremely HIGH gravity(Inhouses if this ever gets off the PTR?)
I am personally so hyped for this map, it looks amazing, seems like they put a bunch of time into it, and they are really calling on the players to help them balance it out. With the recent map balance they did I do feel like they will listen to us if they think something is wrong.
Oni Genji and OFFICER D.Va are now in Classic Lootboxes as Legendary Skins!
-I don't know how I feel about this it makes me feel like I wasted my time with HOTS.... makes these skins a lot less rare.
Mcree-Deadeye Targets now begin locking on after 0.2 seconds, instead of 0.8 seconds Damage accumulated over the first 1.0 seconds increased from 20 to 80 (damage per second after the first 1.0 seconds is unchanged)
-Oh shit did Mcree become good again?
Reaper-The Reaping (Passive) Removed health orbs. Now regains 20% of all damage done to heroes as health
Roadhog -Head hitbox size reduced by 20% -Scrap Gun Bullet damage decreased by 33%, Fire rate increased by 30%, Clip size increased from 4 to 5
-IS THIS A NERF OR A BUFF? I CAN'T TELL
Remember everything I have said is a PTR thing and is most likely going to be changed at some point or canceled.
How hyped are you for this?
Personally I am OVER THE MOON FOR IT.
