Overwatch – 31 August 2020 Patch Notes

Overwatch – 31 August 2020 Patch Notes

HERO UPDATES

Armor

  • Beam-type damage reduction against Armor health pools increased from 20% to 30%

In an environment with less pervasive barriers, some Damage heroes have become increasingly lethal. As such, we’re now looking to reduce damage outputs accordingly. As a cascading effect, this also introduces a need to reduce healing outputs for some Support heroes, as there’s less damage being dealt overall.

OVERWATCH RETAIL PATCH NOTES – AUGUST 13, 2020

HERO UPDATES

BRIGITTE
  • After gaining multiple Repair Pack charges, Brigitte was enabled to play at safer distances while still having a powerful impact on her team. Combined with her personal barrier, she ended up not needing as much survivability in terms of raw health.
  • Inspire has also had a powerful team impact despite being hard to feel due to its passive nature, so we are lowering its team-wide healing output while making it more useful for Brigitte herself.
  • Base health lowered from 200 to 150
Inspire
  • Total healing decreased from 130 to 90 (Healing reduced from 21 to 15 health per second)
  • Self-healing is no longer reduced by half

ORISA

The large radius of Orisa’s Halt! ability made it too effective in setting up combos against large groups of enemies on a relatively short cooldown. The changes to the projectile speed and radius are aimed at shifting its use to be more effective at catching single targets.

  • Base armor reduced from 250 to 200
Halt!
  • Radius reduced from 7 to 4 meters
  • Projectile speed increased from 20 to 30

PHARAH
  • We’re making some adjustments to Hover Jets that should increase her flight speed and make her more agile. To compensate for this change, we’re also lowering her hover uptime.
  • Rocket Barrage has such immense damage output that the tail end of the duration was often more of a liability than a benefit, especially with fewer barriers around to blast through.
Hover Jets
  • Movement speed increased 20%
  • Regeneration rate reduced from 50 to 35 per second
Barrage
  • Duration reduced from 3 to 2.5 seconds

ROADHOG

These weapon changes are intended to make Roadhog’s Chain Hook combo more consistent and bring back some of the heavyweight feeling it had in the past.

Scrap Gun

General

  • Ammo reduced from 6 to 5
  • Damage per projectile increased from 6 to 7
  • Recovery increased from 0.7 to 0.85 seconds

SIGMA

Given Sigma’s offensive strength with Hyperspheres and Accretion, we have reduced some of his defensive tools to bring him more in line with other Tank heroes.

Experimental Barrier
  • Health reduced from 900 to 700
  • Regeneration rate reduced from 120 to 80 per second
Kinetic Grasp
  • Cooldown increased from 10 to 12 seconds

SYMMETRA

We’re reducing the cooldown of the Teleporter to help lower the friction between needing to use it as both a personal and team-focused mobility tool.

Teleporter
  • Cooldown reduced from 12 to 10 seconds

ZENYATTA

Zenyatta has low healing and mobility outside of his ultimate but makes up for it with high potential damage output. With the recently lowered barrier uptime resulting in an overall faster pace of the game, we want to make sure Zenyatta still excels at his strengths. This change will make his charged attack flow a bit better in combat.

Orb of Destruction

Secondary Fire

  • Charge rate increased 15% (0.6 down to 0.52 seconds per orb)
  • Rate of fire increased from 8.5 to 9 shots per second

SUMMER GAMES 2020

Attention, athletes: It’s time for the 2020 Summer Games! Test your mettle in Lúcioball Remix, an all-new, even crazier version of your favorite ball-based sport. Sharpen your skills in the cutthroat competition of Copa Lúcioball Season 4. We’ve made major updates to our Busan and Sydney arenas, along with a variety of small updates to Lúcioball gameplay. Once you’ve worked up a sweat, hit the beach with legendary skins including Lifeguard Pharah, Surf’s Up Echo, and Tropical Baptiste. Unlock these and more, along with Summer Games items from previous years!

LÚCIOBALL REMIX

Lúcioball Remix is the wildest way to play Lúcioball yet. With two balls in play at once, plus periodic Bonus Balls worth three points each, scores will skyrocket and astounding plays will be made. Will you keep up, or will the barrage of balls break your brain?

Lúcioball Gameplay Updates
  • Lúcio moves faster
  • Lúcio has faster cooldowns
  • Lúcio punch and boop range increased
  • Lúcio punch and boop are now partially affected by your facing, to improve ball control
  • Lúcio can crouch in the air to drop down to the ground
  • Added new custom game options for Lúcioball

GENERAL UPDATES

Priority Requeue for Backfilled Games

If you join a game after it has started to replace a player who has previously left, you are considered to have “backfilled” into that game. After finishing a game where you backfill, you are now granted a priority requeue the next time you queue to play. You will see a small icon on the interface to denote this status. When you queue for a game with priority requeue status, the matchmaker tries to prioritize finding an appropriate game for you. This normally results in significantly lower times waiting in queue.

CUSTOM GAMES UPDATES

Lopsided Teams

Further customize how many players can be on each team in a custom game. While games are still limited to 12 players in total, you are now able to choose any number of slots on Team 1 and Team 2. For Workshop users, this affects how many dummy bots can spawn on each team. If the total number of player slots is 12, that defines how many dummy bots can spawn on each team (e.g. a 4v8 mode would allow for 4 dummy bots on one team and 8 on the other). If the total number of player slots is less than 12, additional dummy bots may be added to either team as long as the total number of players is within 12 (e.g. a 4v0 mode would allow up to 8 additional dummy bots on either team). We’re excited to see what asymmetrical game modes you all come up with!

COMPETITIVE UPDATES

Modification to High SR Grouping Restrictions

To match the new maximum SR of 3900 a player can achieve after finishing placements, you can no longer queue for Competitive Play in a group with more than 2 players if any player in the party is 3900 SR or higher.
