Patch notes goes live
WHOO JACKPOT!


#79
  1. Who determines if a person is “whiny”?
  2. So we’re not gonna listen to the people who play the game 8 hours a day and understand it to a level that makes them professionals at it? :thinking:

Yes, let’s not listen to our community and only listen to the small group of forum support mains who CLEARLY know how to balance a game. Brilliant!

Genji
extra second of dragonblade since we decreased his movement speed

A list of ideas I’ve had for a while and I would love to try when the devs get around to releasing the Game editor. For those who aren’t aware it’s something they want to release and the custom games settings was supposed to be a temporary placeholder. Imagine custom games settings but like 20 times more powerful in terms of options to customize heroes and their abilities.

Mercy

  • Resurrect
    • Removed as normal ability restored as an ultimate

Resurrect Ultimate

  • Nerfs so it’s not as strong and has counterplay

    • give it a Line of Sight checker like D.Va bomb or Lucio Sound Barrier no more rezzing through walls, floors, ceilings, and the payload
    • remove the invulnerability during rez buff they gave her that sent her down the road to this garbage rework
  • Buffs so it’s not completely useless

    • increase mass resurrect range to 30 meters from 15 meters (original range during Beta was 40 meters with no LOS check)
    • Living allies within range/LOS get an instant full health heal to keep them alive while bringing back dead teammates. Which should get rid of the hide & rez and die on point mentality/Play Style. This also gives Resurrect another use.

  1. Whiny persons are the ones that ask for other heroes to get nerfed and yet cry on the forums when their favourite heroes get the same treatment. They define themselves by acting as such.
  2. Pros are a minority and GM people represent less than 1% of the community. I reached GM twice and I didn’t feel more important or superior to others in any way. They don’t understand the game better or less than us, it’s just a different gameplay determined by the hours you spend on it. Professionals dictating their code for the rest of the players (99% of OW players) isn’t healthy to the game.

Again, the small community you’re referring to is usually the one that calls for useless nerfs instead of using counters that exist and are available in the hero select menu.

You’re calling out support mains but they are not a minority, they’re a part of the 99% people from the community I just mentioned. Plus, all the nerfs and reworks are partially due to the 1 % of higher ranked players and look at the state of the game : everybody complains, yet they blame the wrong people for it.

All those streamers, Seagull etc… are saying the game is broken but they don’t even acknowledge they’re indirectly the persons to blame for this. Had they kept their mouth shut a year ago (or even before), the game would have been different and better today.


#83

Mercy eats cake, because ”Heroes Never Pie!”


#84

All toxic comments turn to positive. Or toxicity is gone.


#85

Hanzo

  • Dragonstrike
    Hanzo suicides after ulting and the allies in it die too.

Torbjörn

Now has limited voiceline capacity, once exceeded Torbjörn melts in his own molten core and hopefully gets banned.


#86

Mccree: roll is now usable in the air. Adjusted head hitbox to not count his hat.

Winston: ult is now cancellable.


#87

FOV reworked.
Vertical FOV adjustable up to 120.
Horizontal FOV auto adjusted depending on how wide your monitor is.

Meaning someone using a 16:9 monitor with an FOV set to 110 will have an actual FOV of ~125.

Viewmodel’s now have optional settings
Viewmodels now have the following:
Mini mode, VMFOV slider, enable/disable option, transparency slider.

Added a scoreboard
OW will now use a scoreboard.
Players can now keep track of their score and the score of their enemies and allies.

The medal system is still in place but they are small icons that are next to the numerical values on the scoreboard.

Depending on the hero you will play, the scoreboard will change stats that are more important to the specific hero and the importance of each stat goes from highest to low or left to right.

If you’re playing Moira your scoreboard will have: Healing, Assists, Eliminations, Deaths, ultimate %, ping

If Mercy: Healing, Assists, Deaths, Eliminations, ultimate %, ping

If McCree: Eliminations, Deaths, Assists, DMG, ultimate %, ping

Some details are not shown since some statistics are irrelevant to some heroes.
The rest of the statistics like dmg to barriers, dmg etc will be displayed bellow the scoreboard and that is available only to the player. Spectators can view this hidden area by right clicking the player and selecting “View Detailed Scoreboard”.

Custom crosshair builder
You can now draw your own crosshairs in game and apply the ingame settings to them.


#88

Tracer and Genji removed, Mercy is reverted


#89

This… I believe they need to shorten her fall off damage range.


#90
  • Remove Sombra (not letting others play the game as an ability? Really?)
  • Remove or completely rework Bastion (always been useless, still useless and will be useless)
  • Remove Mei, because… Mei (Really, no reason besides ‘Mei’)
  • Massively reduce stun/boop mechanics. (I’m not trying to play pinball here)
  • Nerf/change Dva (She enables WAY too many comps and pretty much makes hitscan useless at the higher level)
  • Make Mercy fun to play… somehow. Right now she’s braindead boring to play (which she’s been forever, regardless of past buffs/nerf/changes).

Ah well… I can dream :stuck_out_tongue:


#91

Mercy being reverted
not her ult though

#93

Please blizz omhlhlhlhlljlljljhll


#94

rein gives you a thumbs up


#95

This would be a really nice change! I also think activating Valkyrie should reset the cooldown of GA. My dream Valkyrie change is some form of strong single target beam healing.
