    PTR Patch Aug 10, 2017


    New Game Modes: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch

    Two new game modes have been added to the Arcade: Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch!

    In Deathmatch, eight players go head-to-head until one player scores 20 points. Players will earn 1 point whenever they land the final blow on an opponent and will lose 1 point whenever they die to environmental damage (ex: falling off a cliff) or self-inflicted damage. This scoring will be tracked in a brand-new scoreboard. The first player to 20 points wins!

    In Team Deathmatch, two teams of four players face off until one team scores 30 points. Players will earn 1 point for their team whenever they land the final blow on an opponent and will lose 1 point for their team whenever they die to environmental damage (ex: falling off a cliff) or self-inflicted damage. If players are resurrected before they respawn, the corresponding point for their death will be deducted from the enemy team’s score. This scoring will be tracked in our default scoreboard. The first team to 30 points wins!

    Both modes will play out on a selection of maps from our existing pool:

    • Hanamura
    • Horizon Lunar Colony
    • Temple of Anubis
    • Volskaya Industries
    • Dorado
    • Eichenwalde
    • Hollywood
    • King’s Row
    • (TDM only) Black Forest
    • (TDM only) Castillo
    • (TDM only) Ecopoint: Antarctica
    • (TDM only) Necropolis

    We’ve made several modifications to many of these maps (including restricting play to a specific area and developing a special respawn system) when playing in these modes. We’re also introducing a brand-new map specifically for Deathmatch: Château Guillard! Learn more about this map below.

    Both modes will be available for play in Custom Games.

    Watch our developer update for additional insight: https://youtu.be/4_CBzklel1c 

    Here is video showing of the new deathmatch FFA. here

    New Deathmatch Map: Château Guillard

    Image result for overwatch Château Guillard

    Château Guillard is located near Annecy in southeastern France. For hundreds of years, it was the estate of the influential Guillard family, until it gradually fell into disrepair after the family's power waned in the decades after the Revolution. Recently, the château has found a new owner: the Talon agent Widowmaker, who has returned to her family's ancestral home.


    • A number of data format changes have been implemented

    Developer Comments: Over the past few months, we’ve been working on a number of significant under-the-hood changes that will help us streamline the patching process. This will allow us to reduce the download size in future patches, but it does mean that today’s patch is larger than a traditional patch.

    • Concussion Mine
      • Junkrat can now hold two mines
    • RIP-Tire
      • Tire’s movement speed has been increased by 30%
      • There is no longer a time limit when wall climbing

    Developer Comments: Giving the Junkrat the ability to store two concussion mines adds some much-needed flexibility and versatility to his kit, particularly when using the mines for mobility. RIP-Tire’s damage has always been very good, but it was often difficult to steer the tire into position before it was destroyed. Increasing its speed will allow players to effectively detonate the tire more often and decrease the amount of time that Junkrat is vulnerable while controlling it.

    • Fusion Driver
      • Projectile speed increased by 20%
    • Protective Barrier
      • Barrier size increase by 20%
      • Barrier shape has been changed to allow for more coverage from enemies that are below the barrier

    Developer Comments: The projectile speed increase helps Orisa’s consistency, especially at medium ranges (or further). Her barrier size has been increased to better protect her team, and the new shape makes the shield more effective when it’s used on slopes or on top of objects (such as a payload).

    • Take a Breather
      • Can now be used while moving
      • Damage taken while healing has been reduced by 50%

    Developer Comments: These changes help Roadhog be much more aggressive when looking for hook targets or blocking for his team. The combination of these effects significantly increases Roadhog’s sustainability and survivability.

    • Grappling Hook
      • Cooldown has been reduced from 12 seconds to 8
    • Venom Mine
      • Affected targets are now visible through walls (to you as Widowmaker only)

    Developer Comments: Widowmaker is extremely powerful in the right hands, but her abilities often felt a little weak. The Grappling Hook cooldown reduction means she is more likely to have it available when she needs to escape. Venom Mine is intended to be an early warning system, uncovering enemies that are attempting to flank her or her team. With this change, she can see enemies when they trigger the mine, even if they’re on the other side of a wall.

    You watch this video to see the new buffs in action.

    Really excited to see Team Deathmatch! I think it'll be lots of fun. I'm also looking forward to a new map, especially since we get a new area of the world to explore in Overwatch.

    I'm certainly excited for the Junkrat & Orisa buffs. I want out of meta heroes to have a chance to be played without the team yelling at ya. Really looking forward to them getting some love. I'm not super excited about the Roadhog changes just because he was finally out of the spotlight for a moment, but now they're just pulling him back in. I think Widowmaker's venom mine change will be interesting and I look forward to it.
