Overwatch Blizzard/Developer Post Directory - Last Updated: 1/15/2019


New update to the archives today…

First Tom Powers did a bump on a constructive topic in the Bug Report forum which significantly breaks down a VERY detailed report of suspected bugs for Doomfist and how they affect his current kit, identifying which are bugs and which are not. While I don’t typically document Blizzard responses to bugs, if most of these bugs are being resolved, it could result in a dramatic shift of balance for Doomfist. So for now it is going to be in the hero balance section for the time being.

Now I also caught up on several non-critical developer responses on Reddit from Lead Engineer Bill Warnecke, first he confirms a video advertisting an “Overwatch Mobile” game is indeed fake and any information collecting from it is a SCAM. Because of this, I am starting a new emoji, the :warning: icon, to denote such posts. The idea is to help spread the message that such content is a scam, but players MUST be careful to NOT go to the source content in order to protect their accounts.

On a lighter note, Bill Warnecke also had positive reactions to fan-created content in the last few weeks:


Guys you should really buff dommfist, he need buffs, #BuffDoomfist


You, uh, know Dinoflask does NOT do that, right?


Game Director Jeff Kaplan is popping in on the forums today, this first post is not likely to be placed into the directory as it has little context outside of announcing an upcoming patch hopefully next week.

However he did gives a little trip back down memory lane of what he remembers it was like to first play Overwatch. This post will be sorted into the Development History section


The directory has been updated with the lore drops from the new Bastet story.




RIP Briggette. Rippity Rip.

And also I really like reaper, but 50% is too much.


There were two key interviews in the Overwatch Creator’s Residency today with Game Director Jeff Kaplan.

On that note, I have moved all Interviews into a separate section in the Development & History section on the third post since most of those interviews have a huge variety of subjects discussed. If you want to discuss these interviews specifically, please see this topic:


Minor new update discovered on Reddit earlier this week, apparently the feature of being able to transfer ownership of a custom game lobby will be introduced in the 1.33 patch (note we are currently live on patch 1.32 and the PTR is testing features for 1.32.1).
