Watchpoint Radio #50: Support Gets the Shaft... Again.
Supports are getting the SR shaft, players are holding competitive matches for ransom, and can you game the SR system by playing unpopular characters?...
Orisa is now live, and as expected, it’s taking the community some time to get used to her. Many are trying to use her as a replacement for Zarya, D.Va, and other tanks, when it’s pretty clear she was built to be an option for Reinhardt. But now that she’s off the PTR, we can focus on other important changes coming, such as Lucio being readjusted. Healing radius nerfed, healing amount buff, as well as some other interesting changes. Also, in an attempt to reduce draws on Assault maps, Overwatch will now track progress on objectives as a way to determine the winner on assault maps in competitive.
Also we talk about additional character balance, changes to Route 66, is Reinhardt actually a must pick, and more.
