Crosshairs & The Mercy Bug


Mercy_random

Horizon Lunar Colony is set to go live next week June 20th.

  • Patch changing Roadhog, McCree and Reaper ‘s Overwatch Gameplay will go live as well as some unannounced Crosshair Options.
  • Reinhardt’s hammer swing detection bug should be fixed next week as well, but no word yet on the Mercy Rez bug that stops some heroes from ‘never dying’ [get it?] when they are shown on screen to be in range to be rez’d, hopefully that gets patched too.
  • Last two stories are report options for hackers on the Blizzard website and a question for you all :
  • Were you disappointed in the Overwatch Anniversary event?

Blueposts: Permanent Ban Incoming. Mystery Hero Fix. LĂșcio’s Badass Skin.

Permanent Ban Incoming

OhitsFreezey: I was playing in fighting games lately and i see sometimes a red label over over there battle tage name and its label them as a leaver or disconnects . also i see them get into games with other leavers / disconnected players matches for a few games so i was wondering if you guys can take this idea as a reconsideration.

Jeff Kaplan: We’ll definitely take the idea into consideration. Our philosophy has been that we would rather not have leavers playing the game at all (especially in Competitive Play). We keep increasing the penalty for leaving and will continue to do so. We’re in the process of implementing a new policy which would take into account how many Competitive Seasons you have been banned from and at a certain point, prevent you from playing Competitive ever again. [source]

Mystery Hero Fix

Jeff Kaplan: We have a number of Mystery Heroes fixes on our to-do list. We’re very eager to get to them but it just hasn’t bubbled to the top of our priority list yet. We definitely want to get rid of suiciding to force a hero switch. We will also remove the “Assemble Heroes” wait time as there is no reason for it in this mode. We have some other improvements in mind as well.

I am curious how the community as a whole feels about some of the ideas you bring up. I know that it frustrates me when the other team ends up with 5 D.Va’s. I also get frustrated when the enemy team has a balanced team comp and my team comp is less balanced. But perhaps that is part of the charm of the mode?

How do you guys feel about a purely random system (such as it works now) versus a mostly random system where we try to limit stacking and nudge the team comps towards something more reasonable? I can see arguments for both ways being compelling to different people. [source]

LĂșcio’s Badass Skin

side_support_lucio_classAmir: This is what Lucio was initially supposed to look like. He looks so badass omg make it happen please. https://twitter.com/overwatchgg/status/872506015341834240

Jeff Kaplan: That was Arnold’s early concept for LĂșcio. We’re glad you like it. Maybe we’ll consider making it a skin someday.

The art book is really amazing. Our art team and our publishing team have poured so much love into it. We hope you enjoy it when it comes out. [source]

Health Pack Location Change

OO7: Anyone else think the health packs are too close together on this map?
For example – 2 Megas 20 meters apart. http://imgur.com/kNQtxw3

Dave Adams: Just did a pass on all health packs, should be in the next patch. [source]
