Watchpoint Radio #65: All Aboard the Buff Train!
After last week’s nerf to Doomfist, it appears Blizzard is being very liberal with the buffs this week. Zarya, McCree, Reaper, and Reinhardt were all blessed this week with some pretty sweet buffs to make them more efficient. This comes at a great time, as a recent video suggests that Overwatch should use buffs more for balancing versus nerfing. While it might seem like fun, balancing in that way won’t work out in the long term, and we discuss why. Also, since everyone else is talking about it, we discuss if Overwatch is dying. I’m pretty sure you won’t be surprised by our answer.
Additionally we talk Overwatch league legal troubles, Doomfist’s official release date, confirmed loot drop rates, reclassifying characters, and more. This episode was live streamed, and we plan to continue to live stream going forward. If you want to hang out with us during the recording, be sure to follow Mash Those Buttons on Twitch.
