Watchpoint Radio #83: Moira, Blizzard World, and Good Conversation [w/ Andres of Omnic Lab]

November 22nd, 2017

This week we are joined by Andres of Omnic Lab to talk the latest in Overwatch. Patch 1.17 brought Moira live, but it looks like she was a little too good to be true. Her and a few other characters have a few silent adjustments on the PTR. Also on the PTR, Blizzard World! The map isn’t slated for release until next year, but it appears Blizzard is allowing some serious testing of the map over the next month. Another change that came with Patch 1.17 was the Mercy changes that were supposed to kill her… Didn’t happen. Mercy mains seem to be adjusting nicely.

Additionally we discuss Oversumo again, and now the newest changes aren’t making us very happy. We also dig into eAthelete behavior, and discuss whether or not Overwatch deserved eSports Game of the Year.
