Here is the part of the patch notes where they try to explain the drop off changes. We’ve said it in this thread I’m sure, that Mei’s secondary had to many limiting factors to it. So I’m glad they’ve removed one but kept her other restraining aspects.
EDIT: ALSO I personally don’t think this was the way to go… I mean Mei can build ult even quicker now… and Low HP heroes better watch out even more.
Now please fix cryofreeze. Jardio is up to 431 deaths since he started tracking…
Developer Comments: The goal of these changes is to slightly reduce the impact of damage falloff on mid-range weapons. While assessing falloff mechanics across the board, weapons intended primarily for close-range combat benefited too greatly from lowering their falloff restrictions. We also normalized a couple of outliers in that Mei had a long-range travel time projectile with falloff applied and Widowmaker’s automatic fire did not have any.
