Watchpoint Radio #90: This Episode is Not About Overwatch League
Overwatch League kicks off this week, but that’s not what this episode is about.
Season 8 has started, and Jaa & Bob have completed placements on multiple characters. Something seems off those, as both have placed much lower than expected despite great stats during placement matches. They discuss what’s going on.
The latest OW patch delivers OWL skins, a new OWL menu in game, an update for Zenyatta, and LOTS of bug fixes for Doomfist. Additionally, console players will get some features they’ve been asking for.
Looks like Jaa isn’t the only person that’s been thinking Junkrat needs a nerf. His mine is receiving a bit of a nerf, while Mercy is getting hit hard with the nerf hammer. Valkyrie no longer has the resurrection benefits it had, as well as Guardian Angel speed being cut, and its length is reduced to 15 seconds.
Complaints have been bubbling up on the Overwatch forums stating that Rein needs a buff to compete with Orisa. Jaa and Bob talk it out.
