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.
The Workshop on PTR, what Overwatch can learn from the APEX ping system, and how to not tilt your main healer when you're gold Zen.
It's been a while, but Jaa is running this show solo. He talks about the even we've all been waiting for: Storm Rising! He also discusses some things Jeff Kaplan talked about on stream, and what we can expect in the coming months, as well as more talk on game sense and reading a play before it happens.
Storm Rising revealed, why 2-2-2 locked comp won't fix Overwatch, picking characters in low tiers, and more.
More PTR changes are on the way and toxicity is down! We dig into that, why pro's shoot Zarya bubbles, and what a 2-2-2 role queue might play like with our special guest Ramses. We also have a special announcement!
Even the Overwatch team can't decide how to pronounce Baptiste. As of this recording, it's officially pronounced with the P. We discuss the dev Q&A that brought forth that revelation, PTR updates, carry fatigue, and more.
Along with Baptiste we see a lot of buffs incoming that will pump damage through the roof. Is this because the Overwatch team is trying kill GOATS? Or is it because Blizzard is trying to woo players back with more efficient (and fun) DPS play?
This episode focuses our recent community feedback. We'll discuss new hero ideas, six stacking, using stat's properly, Baptiste synergies, and more.
Big show this week as Hero 30 has been revealed: Baptiste! In addition to our new support character there are a TON of updates to current characters on the PTR. We discuss this and what we see in the future of Overwatch on this episode.
Shows late, Jaa's sick, Kinder is MIA, and not much going on in Overwatch this week. That's ok, though. We still have a show to do! We discuss climbing your rank by playing your rank, personal gains vs SR gains, and what role SR would look like.
Two surprises from the devs this week! We got a new Ana challenge that came with a short story, and we got some incoming balance changes via PTR. We also discuss if CTF didn't get a fair shake and more.
First episode of 2019, but we're giving Kinder and Ben a chance to give their thoughts on 2018. We also dig into why playing online can't be fair, and discuss hero bans in competitive.
This is the final WPR for 2018, and we end it by talking about this year in Overwatch. Once we look back, we realize the game didn't have many feature changes, but new characters and balance changes affected it in a big way.
