Watchpoint Radio #71: Lord Have Mercy

August 30th, 2017

Not one, but two major character reworks are on the PTR right now. D.Va and Mercy have received kit changing updates that will certainly shake up the meta. No more mass rez for Mercy will lead to more decision making, while Blizzard cuts defense matrix in half, leaving us to wonder what D.Va’s role is now. Additionally Reinhardt got a nice QoL change in being able to rotate his camera in a full 360 while his shield is up.

Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch went live, as well as the expected changes for Junkrat, Orisa, and Windowmaker. Season 6 is on the horizon, and all of these changes are sure to make things interesting. Finally, we discuss a recent troll that got what he deserved. However, in trying to show him up, Jeff Kaplan revealed just how relaxed the reporting system is. There is hope for the future, as Jeff discusses their future plans for reporting.
