1GB PTR update?


#1

Anyone has the patchnotes?


#2

And so this is how Brigette dies.
Not with a quiet whimper, but a 1GB patch.


#3

Incoming PTR Changes


#4

so, a patch as large as her presence on the field

seems about right.


#5

R.I.P bout time it happened


#6

Blizzard posted the patch notes on the launcher, it’s the Brig rebalance, nerfing her shield damage, but buffing her overall healing and duration for her passive. Doomfist’s ult has a large middle ring by .5m but now deals much less damage outside the middle ring


#7

Nice, they released that much quicker than I expected


#8

I personally welcome the change, I love brig as a character, I do feel like she’s a bit much, I worry they’re going to nerf her to be worthless, and I don’t want that to happen. She’s definitely healthy for the game, but she doesn’t need to be OP like she is, so i understand.

Brigitte

  • Whip Shot
    • Damage reduced from 70 to 7

Dev Notes: Reducing Whip Shot’s damage reduces her total stun combo damage potential while still allowing her to be a troll pick. Brigitte is a hybrid tank/healer, and lately we’ve been reducing her effectiveness by reducing the power of her non-healing functionality, so lol.

She’s nowhere near dead. She may have lost a little bit of dueling/offensive power, but she’s going to make GOATS even stronger. She still has her utility and the increased healing is going to make taking down group-up deathballs around Brigitte even harder.


#11

It’s a take on a star wars meme.


#12

RIP bully Brigitte.

You won’t be missed.


#13

Apparently the McCree and Bastion changes are included too


#14

Those were there before. This is a 2nd set of changes announced last week.


#15

Really? No idea how I messed them then


#16

It’s easy enough to do. There wasn’t any sort of fanfare behind the 1st set of changes, they just appeared a couple days after being spoken about.


#17

I guess it takes a lot of space to ruin a hero


#18

i wouldn’t say brigittes dead, but she definitly feels more like a support now.
she kind of have to stay next to someone now to get value out of her.
