1.30 patch now online! (New Hero Ashe) - IMPORTANT PATCHING INFORMATION!


#9

will it fully reinstall on XBox as well, or just Windows/PC?


#10

It should fully reinstall on all platforms.


#11

I don’t have PTR installed but it was only 500mb for me.


#12

danke

any special instructions/advice for us console folks?


#13

Just try to let the updater work like normal, but if you get an error saying not enough room, you may have to manually uninstall Overwatch.


(Bill Warnecke) #14

We also initiated a background download (aka prepatch) for this 1.30 update late last week. This prepatch allowed for a smaller update today.

Cheers!


So when this "major update" is coming?
#15

You guys are great !


#16

Is it me or is there a FPS loading bug when launching the game?


#17

I am very curious about the changes that were, uhm, infrastructural?

I dont have a good word here

They have been mentioned but with (to the best of my knowledge) no specifics


#18

oh the doomfist nerf is for later? :disappointed_relieved: he’s still gonna be ruining games until then.


#19

Faster load for no SSD plebs, correction bugs and prepare the game for replay.


#20

…Timepass… Sigh When is Sym gonna get a serious look at during a ptr.

Honestly I can’t tell at all if you take Sym’s development seriously or not.


#21

I like how the team are making videos for patches. To the devs, I really hope you guys continue to give us highlights in the future of the patch changes. It’s a nice refreshing way to see what’s new outside of reading blocks of text. Nicely done there with the presentation. :smiley:

#22

There has only been interviews during BlizzCon from the devs saying balance changes were planned for Doomfist. Nothing has been tested on the PTR for Doomfist as of late.


#23

Doom is for 1.31 in December or January.


#24

She quite literally was just buffed and the devs have said they are not sure what to think of her place yet and are watching her.

Edit: This probably isn’t the thread for this anyway. The info is really welome, OP.


#25

Thank you, this is how you spread informations right :smiley:


#26

I have tested the buff, I was not amused, it was the same when they add 2 meters to her beam. It really didn’t do much.

Sigh…(I have been sighing a lot because of this.)

Personally She became a Taxi driver. And Saying that just makes me sad.

I think the Teleporter is just same thing as Armor Packs. I think it was a poor decision to lose the Photon Barrier.

But I never hear what Devs think about it all.

Honestly just make me mad for the way this was all handled.


#27

Good to know. Thanks for the info. Good thing I already have PTR installed.

So Ashe is already live? That’s quicker than I thought. Got to sample her briefly in PTR. Curious how she will shake things up.


#28

I’m more excited to enjoy Mercy.
Edit: Nevermind.
