Watchpoint Radio #95: Capture the Dog
2018 Lunar New Year kicked off in Overwatch late last week. We go over what came with it, along with character balance, and UI updates....
We’ve had a week to digest the Mercy and Junkrat changes, and it’s looking like those nerfs have taken their toll. This week Kinder from Fragging Out Podcast joins us to talk the latest in Overwatch!
Jeff decided to grace us with a developer update literally minutes before we recorded. It gave us some insight into this year’s Lunar New Year event, such as balance changes for CTF, a longer event time, and a new map.
There has been a clear effect on Mercy and Junkrat from the latest nerfs. Both Bob and Kinder lament the changes to Junkrat, which Jaa seems to be perfectly fine with them. Through analysis, we are able to the negative impact to Mercy thanks to Omnic Meta.
We pulled a forum post where the OP was complaining about smurfs on console. Console players have access to unlimited smurfs, which can cause lots of problems and can also limit the effect of the reporting system. Should something be done about it?
One of our iTunes reviews requested that we discuss a bit about heroes we would like to see in Overwatch. We did just that.
