Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – January 7, 2019

  • Tanks are crap now
    Developer Comments: We wanted people to play Zarya only, or even better DPS only. OWL is where the cash is at, mofos.

  • Dva DM
    Developer comments: Dva was able to block ults you mindless threw at her. Now it will be more easy to press Q. Along with the armor-nerf Dva is effed. We hate her.

  • Reaper buff
    Just run in peoples face and shoot, you don´t need a healer anymore and Reaper-Ult won´t be blocked.
    Developer comments: We destroyed the game to make Reaper viable. Cool, huh?

  • Mercy
    What about her? She is in a totally great spot, no changes needed…


As are many others. (Not)
Their balancing is so slow, it’s frustrating. I hope they know what they’re doing.



The ulterior motive rears its head. Also they have to kill GOATs. This meta has driven away so many content creators, and in the end, they are who make people want to play this game.


This patch reeks of “We were desperate to get rid of GOATs before Season 2 OWL started”.



As a tank-main i am interested in a healthy Mercy, but it was not the purpose of this thread.
