Watchpoint Radio #107: It’s Time For Some Changes

May 9th, 2018

Season 10 is in full effect, but with the exception of the meta, it doesn’t feel like much has changed. We discuss that, PTR changes, and Omnic Meta Analysis on Brigitte.

Comp Challenges

Over the past few seasons we’ve been seeing the same problems in comp, and there are steps both Blizzard and the community can take improve them. We discuss lop sided matches, effects of the SR bell curve with a declining player base, smurfs, and community toxicity.

PTR Changes

Ana is getting buffs, and Brigitte is getting nerfs. How will this affect both in the meta?

Brigitte – Omnic Meta Analysis

Omnic Meta put together an analysis on Brigitte from a sample size of 200k matches. Healing output, damage capacity, and more are analyzed. Check out the full report here.
