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.

Patch Notes

Besides Year of the Dog, the latest patch brings balance changes to Doomfist and Reaper that should slightly improve quality of life for both characters. Additionally, helpful UI changes were made.
