Watchpoint Radio #74: Not Family Friendly [w/ Thorn & Thyst of Lagging Balls Podcast]

September 20th, 2017

Thorn & Thyst of Lagging Balls podcast join us this week to talk the latest in Overwatch, leading to probably our most not family friendly episode ever. After asking them a few questions we jump into the latest patch which brings Junkertown, D.Va, and Mercy changes. These changes are sure to shake up the meta, as well as leading to a lot of people trying to get Battle Mercy to be a thing again. Make not mistake, however, that the most important change in this patch is that Reinhardt can now change his camera view while his shield is up.

We also dive into the most recent developer update where Jeff Kaplan talks about their role in policing the community, but also pleas with the community to take a look inside itself. Jaa understands where he is coming from, but is not fully sure that the Overwatch team understands what the problem is here. After a few weekly update we hop into community questions which consists of performance tracking tools and how effective comms are overall.

Big thanks to Thorn & Thyst for coming on the show! Enjoy!
