Overwatch News, Discussion, and Community
Watchpoint Radio is Mash Those Buttons weekly podcast dedicated to Overwatch and its community. Join us as we talk news, gameplay, strategy, events, and what’s going on in the community.
Bob is out this week, but the show must go on. In this episode we discuss the impact of two recent changes: how LFG has impacted community interaction, as well as how Symmetra has impacted the competitive scene.
With not much in terms of news this week, we bring on Grand Master player Foo to discuss his thoughts on our newest heroes, LFG, and more.
We expected Hammond, but we did not expect for him to be a hamster. We talk about Overwatch's newest tank and other changes to the PTR, like Sombra's upcoming buffs (or nerfs depending on who you are talking too).
Patch 1.25 is here, bringing Endorsements and LFG to all Overwatch players. It also brings the Symmetra changes that will turn Overwatch upside down. We also got a lot of information on the matchmaker and SR system from Scott Mercer.
Things are quiet this week on the news front, and the Overwatch forums are complaints on repeat. Things are kind of stable. We discuss Jaa's experience with Hanzo, a new Jeff Kaplan interview, and our thoughts on the end of OWL Season 1.
The Year 2 Anniversary event has come to an end, but there is much to discuss. Symmetra's changes didn't play out as expected, patch 1.24 wasn't as effective as hoped, and Reinhardt is still having some major issues.
This week the team at WPR feels vindicated. A new developer update has arrived that is bringing some heavily requested social features that we've talked about for a while: LFG and Endorsements!
Jaa is back, but we are still experiencing some technical difficulties. Despite that, we discuss updated info on Symmetra's rework, winners and losers of the current meta, and more.
It doesn't feel like it, but we've been playing Overwatch for two years now! Jaa is out this episode, but Bob and Kinder talk about the Anniversary event as well as recent meta changes.
The Brigitte meta has brought some changes, but an unexpected change was the rise of Hanzo as a complete boss DPS. In this episode we go over Omnicmeta's Hanzo analysis, discuss Overwatch Year 2 Anniversary, and more.
Season 10 is in full effect, but with the exception of the meta, it doesn't feel like much has changed. We discuss that, PTR changes, and Omnic Meta Analysis on Brigitte.
Details on the Symmetra rework have come out and it looks like she will be packing some major heat. Additionally, with the end of April came the end of season 9, Retribution, and competitive elimination will be out soon too. We reflect on our experiences on this episode.
This week we take a stroll back through competitive seasons 1-9 via a listener e-mail, as well as talk about PTR changes and the new map: Rialto.
