  1. Overwatch | Patch 1.15.0.2

    PATCH HIGHLIGHTS New Escort Map: Junkertown Junkertown is located in the harsh and unforgiving Australian Outback. Constructed from the remains of a destroyed omnium, it's now the home to a band of lawless scavengers known as the Junkers, led by their cutthroat Queen. When they aren’t pillaging the omnium's skeleton for anything of value, the Junkers blow off steam in the Scrapyard—a massive gladiatorial arena whose combatants fight for glory, riches... and to survive. GENERAL UPDATES General [XB1] Players whose Xbox Live reputation has been downgraded to "Avoid Me" will remain in the same matchmaking pool as other Overwatch players. However, they will no longer be able to use the in-game voice communication Mystery Heroes Players will no longer see the Assemble Your Team screen at the beginning of a game Players who purposefully kill themselves will no longer respawn as a new hero. However, their Ultimate ability will reset and anything that’s been placed (i.e. Torbjörn’s turret) will despawn Players will no longer be respawned as the same hero These changes also apply to any custom games where the “Respawn as Random Hero” option has been enabled. User Interface Updates The skull icons that indicate where teammates were killed throughout the map have been replaced with hero portrait icons Third person camera view will now frame the action automatically when spectating or waiting to respawn HERO UPDATES D.Va Micro Missiles (New Ability) D.Va fires a barrage of small rockets that detonate on impact, dealing damage in a limited radius around each explosion. These can be fired while D.Va is using any other ability or firing her Fusion Cannons Defense Matrix Defense Matrix's resource meter will now deplete twice as quickly Energy regeneration per second has been increased to 12.5% (formerly 10%) Boosters Fusion Cannons can now be fired while flying Developer Comments: D.Va’s Defense Matrix uptime has proven to be too strong, but simply reducing it without making other changes would make her too weak (and far less interesting to play). Instead, we’re adding a new ability and giving her the ability to fire while flying. These changes give D.Va new options while maintaining Defense Matrix’s ability to shut down big enemy attacks. Mercy Resurrect (Formerly Mercy's Ultimate ability) Ability now targets a single player, instead of every player within a radius Radius reduced to 5 meters Ability cooldown is 30 seconds Mercy is no longer granted invulnerability while Resurrect is active Valkyrie (New Ultimate Ability) Valkyrie unleashes the full power of Mercy’s Valkyrie suit, enhancing her weapons and abilities for 20 seconds Caduceus Staff: Mercy's healing and damage boosts beams now affect all allies near the targeted teammate, and the staff's effective range has been extended Caduceus Blaster: Now has infinite ammo and increased projectile speed Guardian Angel: Increased range and movement speed Resurrect: Cooldown is instantly reset when Valkyrie is activated and reduced to 10s after the initial cast Hover: Mercy gains the ability to fly freely, at increased movement speed Regeneration (Passive): No longer interrupted when Mercy takes damage Developer Comments: While resurrecting downed allies is a core part of Mercy’s gameplay, the way her Ultimate functioned was causing a number of problems. It was frustrating to play against, and it incentivized Mercy players to hide away from important battles, instead of taking part in them. This version turns Resurrect into a single target ability. It’s still an important part of Mercy’s kit, but plays much better for both Mercy players and her enemies. Valkyrie, her new Ultimate, gives her the opportunity for big game-making plays and opens a number of new options for her. Reinhardt Barrier Field Holding primary fire while your shield is active now allows you to rotate the camera Developer Comments: This change gives Reinhardt more situational awareness while using his shield, allowing him to keep an eye on the battlefield while still protecting his team. A new “Movement Relative to Camera During Barrier Free Look” option can be found under Settings > Controls. Simply select “Reinhardt” from the dropdown menu. This allows players to change the way Reinhardt moves when Barrier Shield is active and players are controlling the third-person camera movement BUG FIXES General Fixed a bug that caused Custom Reticles to appear transparent and ignore opacity settings when their thickness was set to 1 Fixed a bug that caused Control matches to be played in a best-of-five format when creating a custom game using the Competitive preset Fixed a bug that prevented players from requesting a highlight while viewing a killcam after being killed Fixed a bug that prevented voice lines from playing after players received five votes on a commendation card at the end of a match Fixed an issue that prevented players from automatically joining Match Chat, even when the option was enabled Fixed a bug that prevented players from receiving the Perfect Round indicator after an Elimination game if they received a temporary health boost from an ability (e.g. Lúcio’s Sound Barrier) Fixed a bug that caused the “Aim Ease In” setting to affect controller input too aggressively when the thumbstick was deflected diagonally Deathmatch Fixed an issue that prevented the entire Team Deathmatch description from being displayed in the info section Fixed a bug that occasionally caused the incorrect announcer VO to play in highlights captured during Deathmatch games Fixed a bug that allowed Junkrat to destroy his own Steel Traps with Concussion Mines Heroes Fixed a bug that occasionally caused the heroes’ “sigh” voice line to play when respawning Fixed a bug that interrupted the animation on Ana’s eye during the Beach Ball emote with her Captain Amari skin equipped Fixed a bug that prevented Doomfist from being knocked back when his Rocket Punch ability was being used Fixed a bug that allowed Doomfist’s Rocket Punch to hit players through the taxi on King’s Row Fixed a bug that caused a pair of pink fuzzy dice to mysteriously float onto the screen when viewing D.Va’s weapon in the Hero Gallery if her Cruiser skin was equipped Fixed an issue that caused the golden tint of Junkrat’s weapon to appear dull when his Firework skin was equipped Fixed a bug that gave Junkrat’s RIP-Tire a speed boost when players wall jumped on ledges Fixed a bug that occasionally caused Mei’s Ice Wall to launch players into the air Fixed a bug that caused Mei’s Ultimate to appear friendly (it failed to change from blue to red) after being reflected by Genji Fixed a bug that prevented Roadhog’s Chain Hook icon from being displayed in the kill feed when it caused an environmental kill Fixed a bug that caused Symmetra’s Photon Barrier to indicate a 10-second cooldown when the red “cannot use” icon was active Using D.Va's melee attack no longer cancels Micro Missile barrage D.Va's Micro Missiles are now interrupted by stuns, knockbacks, and other crowd-control effects Mercy’s Resurrect is no longer blocked by Steel Trap or Graviton Surge Mercy is no longer able to use Valkyrie to escape Graviton Surge and Steel Traps Maps Fixed a bug on Ecopoint: Antarctica that could cause a crate to block your view of heroes during the winning team lineup Fixed a bug that allowed Reaper to reach unintended locations on Castillo Fixed a bug that allowed some heroes to reach unintended locations on Horizon Lunar Colony Fixed a bug that prevented reflections from appearing on weapons while standing in certain areas on Ilios Fixed a bug that caused jump pads to bounce players higher than intended on Oasis Fixed a lighting issue that caused some items on the last point of Route 66 to take on a pinkish hue when players used low video settings Fixed an issue that caused reflections to appear overly dark while players were standing in areas of the Cave Inn on Route 66 Fixed an issue that caused excessive camera zoom and flashing lights when players loaded into the tutorial map Fixed a bug that prevented plated railings from being properly destroyed by weapons fire on Volskaya Industries Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Watchpoint: Gibraltar User Interface Removed the “Healing Prevented” statistic from Ana’s career profile page Fixed a bug that caused Doomfist’s Rocket Punch UI to occasionally remain visible when respawning Fixed a bug that prevented Doomfist’s Seismic Slam from accurately targeting moving objects, causing Doomfist to land in unintended locations View full article

    FFA!
  4. Overwatch | Patch 1.14.1.2

    Overwatch | Patch 1.14.1.2 = 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). 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. New Deathmatch Map: 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. GENERAL 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. Match-wide voice chat has been added for Deathmatch and Custom Games [PS4/XB1] Player reporting has been enabled An “Aim Ease in” option has been added under the “Advanced” tab in the “Controller” menu. This allows players to customize their turn rate acceleration. If you’d like to know more, check out the developer explain over on the forums HERO UPDATES Junkrat 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. Orisa 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). Roadhog 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. Widowmaker 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 COMPETITIVE PLAY General The length of Competitive Play seasons has been reduced to 2 months (formerly 3) The winner on Control maps will now be decided based on a best-2-out-of-3 series (formerly 3-out-of-5) Due to the shortened season length, fewer Competitive Points will be rewarded at the end of each season More Competitive Points will be rewarded for wins or ties in Competitive Play 15 Competitive Points for a win (formerly 10) 5 Competitive Points for a win (formerly 3) Periodic Skill Rating decay has been reduced Previously inactive players (in Diamond tier or above) lost 50 Skill Rating per day. This has been reduced to 25 Skill Rating per day Playing a match now increases the time till decay by 36 hours (up from 24 hours). The maximum number of days remains set at 7 Players who place in Diamond or below can now lose their place in that tier if their Skill Rating drops below the minimum requirement. However, they’ll still earn their end-of-season rewards for their highest skill tier placed Player Skill Ratings will no longer be temporarily lowered at the beginning of a season (after placement matches) Changes in Skill Rating that occur after each competitive match have been adjusted to address some anomalies, especially with certain heroes Skill Rating earned during players' placement matches will now more accurately reflect their true Skill Rating The calculation system for personal performance contributions has been improved Developer Comments: Learn more about Skill Rating and Skill Tier Updates in our forum post here. Gameplay Anti-stall timers for control points have been reduced to negate stalling as a viable tactic USER INTERFACE General Added an “Outline Opacity” option under the custom reticle settings (found under Controls > Options > Advanced), which allows players to control the opacity of the black outline surrounding the reticule BUG FIXES General Fixed a bug that occasionally required the Capture Point progress bar to progress past the 2nd tick mark before being activated Heroes Fixed a bug that could cause D.Va's black ejection screen to briefly reappear after being ejected from her mech Fixed a bug causing D. Va’s Light Gun to utilize the wrong texture while outside of her mech when the Junker skin was equipped Fixed a bug that caused D. Va’s hair to stand straight up on the Hero Select screen when her Cruiser skin was equipped Fixed a bug causing the lights on the back of Doomfist’s hand to incorrectly indicate full ammo when his Hello emote was activated Fixed a bug that prevented the area-of-effect circle for Doomfist’s Meteor Strike from being visible to all players Fixed a bug that prevented Doomfist’s Meteor Strike from reaching certain high-altitude locations Fixed a bug that was preventing Doomfist’s Rocket Punch from connecting with enemy players that were moving up an incline Fixed a bug preventing Orisa’s “Overclocked” achievement from being granted, even after the criteria was met Fixed a bug causing Sombra’s teeth to be visible while her Stealth ability was active when her Los Muertos skin was equipped Fixed a bug causing Sombra’s reload animation to play even when interrupted Maps Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Ecopoint: Antarctica Fixed a bug that allowed players to see past the map’s background on Black Forest Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Black Forest Fixed a bug that caused the announcer to say “Travelling to Dorado” when joining Castillo Fixed a bug that prevented some equipment (vents, pipes, etc.) from properly connecting to the walls of the power plant on Dorado Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Hanamura Fixed a bug that caused some projectiles to go through the ground on the last point of Horizon Lunar Colony Fixed an issue that caused sprays to display incorrectly on the crane on the Horizon Lunar Colony Fixed a bug that caused pink lighting to appear in some areas of Ilios Fixed a bug that could cause A.I. heroes to get themselves stuck while traveling to the Well Capture Point on Ilios Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Ilios Fixed an issue that caused the lighting to appear dark in Genji’s room on Nepal Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations on Oasis Fixed a bug that prevented Pharah’s Jump Jet from recharging while perched on doorframes in Oasis Fixed a bug that prevented doorframes from being visible and lacking collision on the Practice Range Fixed a bug that caused some players to get stuck behind a plant near the second point on Route 66 Fixed a bug that allowed Doomfist to reach unintended locations on Volskaya Industries User Interface Fixed a bug in the Options > Controls menu that prevented the asterisk (which normally indicates that changes have been made) from being removed from the hero’s dropdown after controls have been set to default Fixed a bug causing the Back button to disappear when scrolling through the list of available games in the Game Browser
