Patch 1.43 clarification

We’ve been seeing quite a bit of misinformation being spread about our December patch (1.43).

The patch is scheduled to go live next week. Short of some unforeseen circumstance causing a delay, we’re expecting to go live with the patch next week.

I’m guessing everyone is as excited as we are for the changes to go live as soon as possible along with Winter Wonderland.

Thanks for clarifying. I appreciate the dialogue on your end. I am always fond of any balance change as I like staying on my toes.

For future balance changes, can you please consider pushing balance changes without a patch, and instead just adjust variables.

Possibly putting balance changes and code changes into the PTR for one week.
Then put the balance changes onto Quickplay for one week.
Then put the balance changes to Competitive.
And then push the code changes whenever they are ready, or it lines up with an event or content release.

Which may even make it so you could have multiple rounds of incremental balance changes, before pushing a code change patch.

If you don’t mind sharing, which heroes are on your watchlist rn besides Hanzo? Any hints?

And all you’ll see is a mass of complaints asking for tank nerfs left and right.

See how much clarity some communication can provide? Thank you, really. Just in the future please do better on this front. A lot of unnecessary frustration coming from the community, the creators and the pro players due to the lack of communication. A few of us already kinda knew this patch wouldn’t go live till winter wonderland because that’s been the history. Mind you it still looks disappointing seeing a patch this influential being sat on for almost a month while we are left to marinate in a very frustrating game state. But I’m sure most would have felt less frustrated had this launch date been properly communicated instead left up to speculation.
