Please rescale reaper lifesteal, its quite unfair the he is categorized as a dmage hero but can tank since the lifesteal is very insane. he just heals the incoming damage he recieves in 2 hits of his weapon even from a far… Or atleast rescale his damage if you dont want to rescale his lifesteal. its not enjoyable anymore that he can cheese out heroes almost any mission because of the buff and high damage while support heroes like Ana gets nerfed almost that its not its not viable to use anymore.

For your kind consideration. Thank you!!

Dear Sir/Madam

I hope that i do not be considered racist or hater for my following comments. I simply want the game be more joyful and pleasant for me and others.

“”“Could you please kindly dedicate a SERVER just for Russia.”""

based on my many hours playing Overwatch (mostly arcade and quick play and lessen competitive) I came across followings to back my reasons for my request:

1-Most Russian players refuse to communicate in English and despite 5 team members with non-Russian language, they continue to speak Russian even when 5 other players ask not to or at least not to talk (i know about muting but this game is about communication). they communicate with other Russians even if one person, in Russian and you can hear two people talking when other players cant understand.

2-they get toxic (very toxic) when tides are not in favor (in a gold rank, all players are relatively the same, therefore there is no need to call others noob, idiots or same things with (in many cases) adding inappropriate words usually starts with F)

3- they leave during games if they feel they are going to loose.

4-they refuse to cooperate with the team. I know every body is free to pick the hero he/she wants, but they can point out their words more politely with no game play sabotage, or ask others more politely.

5- many times i have come across Russian players who are throwing and some times just playing emotics with other Russian player when 4 other players are in a team fight.

I need to point out that not all of Russian are like this and I also have two Russian friends in Overwatch who they have same opinion and Many of my friend who plays Overwatch have same problem.

I hope i dont look a hater and I really hope that this matter would be solved.
It could have been solved if players reported such cases and not ignorantly forgo it.

Best Regards

Jeff Kaplan appeared on the forums mid-day today. Talking about past experiments with role queue and team comp expectations.

These will be sorted into the Role Queue and Other Game Feature Responses respectively in the General Game Features section.

During the Overwatch League matches, Michael Chu dropped a lore bit identifying Hammond as more of a mechanic in terms of his profession.

Another post in the books. Kaplan compares the ping system seen in Respawn’s Apex Legends to features they tried in Overwatch during development.


#110

I can see why this would be hard to implement jn a very confined 3d environment but what if all you pinged was say your targets or an ally simple things

Sorry everyone for not keeping things updated lately, between watching Overwatch League and some personal matters on my part, I have been quite busy. I have updated the directory with the ample supply of information that has appeared in the last couple of weeks including:

On Reddit, Game Director Jeff Kaplan shares a video of Baptiste’s prototyping where the Immortality field was literally a lamp post spawned into the play field.
