Next, Nick talks quickly about the new Hearthstone expansion, "Rastakhan's Rumble." He thinks it looks good, but laughs that Rastakhan is dying in WoW.

Speaking of which, the gang moves onto talking about the news for World of Warcraft. Mechagon and Nazjatar were announced as future destinations. Nick thinks everything looks promising. Harv seemed less impressed. They also talked about WoW Classic, sharing their experiences in the game. Nick found the boundary of exploration before getting too close to Thousand Needles. Eric died a bunch as a warrior while Rei went oom. Overall, they enjoyed the experience but agreed it was at best a diversion from Battle for Azeroth.

Jarret talks briefly about the Starcraft II announcement of Zeratul and looks at the update about the Deep Mind AI. Nick mentions that Orphea is the new HotS hero. Then Jarret takes over and goes deep on the problems of Overwatch and how Ashe does not help the game. He talks about the problems with her ultimate B.O.B. He also looks at the Overwatch decisions of late.

Nick brings up Warcraft III Remastered. He fawns over the cinematic while Eric and Harv look forward to playing the game for the first time. Everyone agrees this was one of the best announcements of the Con.

Nick asks everyone how they would have handled Blizzcon if they knew what Blizzard was releasing. He also asks about what Blizzcon 2020 looks like if there is still no Diablo 4. Blizzard is in an interesting place over the next few years.

Finally, Nick talks to Bob from Watchpoint Radio about his time at Blizzcon. He talks about meeting lots of community members and going to Con Before the Storm. He discusses his time playing Ashe and watching the Overwatch World Cup.

Talk! gang to discuss expectations for Blizzcon! Jarret from WPR joins the WoW! Talk! gang to discuss expectations for Blizzcon!
First, they talk about the Mike Morhaime to J. Allen Brack transition and how that might affect the company. Jarret doesn't expect it will affect Overwatch, but Nick offers some examples of changes to WoW that may indicate the game is shifting in a different direction.

Next, Jarret dives into the state of Overwatch, talking about how the players tend not to understand the game, and how a certain player needs PVE Content or else the game population will decline. He also talks about how loot boxes have stalled as a revenue model.

Nick brings up Diablo and the lack of Diablo IV at Blizzcon. Harv mentions that maybe there will be a Diablo II remaster announced. They wonder if a mobile game would be acceptable to fans of the franchise, or if, despite Blizzard's announcements, it is still on the way.

The gang gets into expectations for WoW, talking about Patch 8.1 and patch 8.2 (or 8.1.5?) They ponder new allied races. They also talk about WoW Classic, and how Jarret doesn't expect WoW Classic to be popular, and everyone mostly agrees. They talk about the angst over the time-restricted demo. Jarret complains about smelting bullets back in vanilla WoW.

Nick rants briefly about Hearthstone, talking about how he thinks Ben Brode's departure is affecting the state of the game, and its going to be some time before it will fully recover, much to the community's chagrin.

Jarret talks briefly about Starcraft. Nick talks a little about Heroes. They have mild expectations for those games.

Then, the gang talks about the bands that were finally announced for Blizzcon: Lindsay Strling, Kristian Nairn, and Train. Nick points out that people are always disappointed in the band and although this set is more eclectic than usual, it really shouldn't matter. He then rants about people complaining about the virtual ticket items and bands like those are the only parts of the Blizzcon tickets that matter.

Finally, they talk about some of the panels they are looking forward to, including the cosplay competition and some of the voice acting panels. They also talk about some of the esports championships that will be happening.

The Mash Those Buttons Team will be back next week with a full recap of everything announced at Blizzcon! See you then!

PTR Changes


Ana is getting buffs, and Brigitte is getting nerfs. How will this affect both in the meta?

Brigitte - Omnic Meta Analysis


Omnic Meta put together an analysis on Brigitte from a sample size of 200k matches. Healing output, damage capacity, and more are analyzed. Check out the full report here.

Rewarding Good Behavior to fix Overwatch

Efforts to fix behavior in Overwatch have mostly focused on punishing bad behavior. We discuss what can be done to promote more teamwork and having players play Overwatch as intended.

#101: Brigitte and the PTR Report Brigitte and the PTR Report Bob is joined by IcySorrow and TotemlyDrunk to discuss Brigitte and a crazy PTR. Mash Those Buttons Bob is joined by IcySorrow and TotemlyDrunk to discuss Brigitte and a crazy PTR. Bob is joined by IcySorrow and TotemlyDrunk to discuss Brigitte and a crazy PTR.
Brigitte is live now! Totem says she's annoying to play against. IcySorrow had been playing her on the PTR and was not enjoying her yet. She and Bob debate her frontline vs. backline usage. Icy is worried about Ana's viability now that so many shields have entered the game.

Next, on the PTR report, a large number of changes have come to the PTR -- so many that Bob says this is the biggest PTR report he can remember. First they discuss the Avoid a Teammate feature, which Bob wants to use so he can be sure to play against people. Who knew he was so vindictive? There are also updates to the Report menu which seem intended to affect Sombra players. You can now also double-click to select a hero, which should help against players who use macros to speed-select their hero. Bob says he has a monster pc so he always gets the hero he wants. As for character changes, D.Va had her micro missile damage reduced and Mei can now freeze people through other people. Bob and Totem disagree about how the Mei change will affect OWL. Icy doesn't want this to lead to people overplaying Mei. There were major Reaper changes, and Icy is worried about them as well. Bob sounds excited for them, and they both agree that it raises Reaper's skill ceiling. Moira is getting some visual changes, and Zenyatta's Orb of Destruction has been nerfed. Bob says that all these changes are to affect either low tier play or high tier play.

In the Weekly Update, the NYXL won the Stage 2 Finals, defeating the Fusion, who previously upset the Spitfire.

Finally, IcySorrow talks about her new podcast Enter the Iris, and TotemlyDrunk discusses all the podcasts he can be found on.

Mash Those Buttons With a lack of Overwatch news we have the opportunity to talk about who should control balance, and the problems with the current competitive system. With a lack of Overwatch news we have the opportunity to talk about who should control balance, and the problems with the current competitive system.
Who should control the balance?

There is some chatter on the forums right now regarding pros controlling balance. Some agree, but many don't. Who should control the balance? Unlike most competitive games, Overwatch isn't dominated by its competitive players and has seen most of its success due to its high number of casual players. Does this mean the casuals should be important to balance changes?

The current competitive system.

It was a bit of a shock that no changes came with Season 9, even though Overwatch's ranked system definitely needs work. We talk about the various issue affecting competitive and what can be done to fix it.

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.

Year of the Dog

This year's Lunar New Year event brings us six new legendaries, one new highlight intro, and two new emotes. Additionally, major tweaks have been added to CTF, as well as a competitive mode for the remainder of the event.

Sombra Buff Incoming

Sombra is being beefed up on the PTR. One nerf, which stops her from gaining ult charge from hacked health packs, but buffs in the the form of decreased weapon spread, faster hacking, and more meaningful hacks.

Year of the Dog Developer Update

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.

Mercy/Junkrat Nerf Effects

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.

Should Smurfing be an actionable Offense?

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?

What hero does Overwatch Need?

One of our iTunes reviews requested that we discuss a bit about heroes we would like to see in Overwatch. We did just that.

Community Update

Jeff Kaplan delivered a community update late last week that detailed the results of the efforts to reduce toxicity in Overwatch, as well as discuss upcoming character balance, and possibly some changes we will see for other characters.

Character Balance

Both Mercy and Junkrat received the nerfs expected. Bob and Andres talk a bit about what they saw, but we really need to wait a bit to see how this will affect the meta.

Overwatch League Upsets

Last week was a week of surprises in the Overwatch League. Andres and Bob talk about what they expected and what actually happened.

Deathblow from the High Noon Podcast joins us this week to discuss the long-awaited Cosmetic update, Blizzard World, and more.
Cosmetic Update

The long-awaited cosmetic update finally arrived and ended up surprising Jaa with extra skins he did not expect. Five new emotes, five new epic skins, 12 new legendary skins, and four new highlight intros are now available PERMANENTLY for all Overwatch players to get in loot boxes.

Blizzard World

Along with the cosmetic update, Blizzard World also arrived. Players are still getting used to all of the pathways, and Blizzard continues to add complexity to their maps.

xQc Suspended

xQc has been suspended after some unsportsmanlike behavior on Twitch. Jaa, Bob, and Deathblow discuss what this means for xQc, and also, how Overwatch League players need to proceed going forward.

OWL Premiere

Overwatch League is now in full swing. Things kicked off with a bang last week, with Wednesday's broadcast bringing in over 400k viewers. Not bad!

What to do about Mercy?

The community has been coming down hard on Mercy recently, or more specifically, Resurrect. In a game with a very long Time to Kill, Resurrect can be a real downer, and much of the community feels that way. What can we do about Mercy?

Hero 27

Jeff Kaplan has confirmed the Hero 27 is moving right along, with skins in development. He also hints that Hero 27 is meta changing.

Placement Matches

Season 8 has started, and Jaa & Bob have completed placements on multiple characters. Something seems off those, as both have placed much lower than expected despite great stats during placement matches. They discuss what's going on.

Patch Notes

The latest OW patch delivers OWL skins, a new OWL menu in game, an update for Zenyatta, and LOTS of bug fixes for Doomfist. Additionally, console players will get some features they've been asking for.

PTR Report

Looks like Jaa isn't the only person that's been thinking Junkrat needs a nerf. His mine is receiving a bit of a nerf, while Mercy is getting hit hard with the nerf hammer. Valkyrie no longer has the resurrection benefits it had, as well as Guardian Angel speed being cut, and its length is reduced to 15 seconds.

Rien Buff?

Complaints have been bubbling up on the Overwatch forums stating that Rein needs a buff to compete with Orisa. Jaa and Bob talk it out.

Overwatch is kicking off the new year with a new competitive season with fresh changes, and we're kicking off the new year with special guest host Rob May of Omnic Lab.
Competitive Season 8

Starting with season 8, those in higher ranks will see some changes regarding matchmaking. Masters will only be placed in games with people within 500 SR, and for Grandmasters, that difference is 250 SR. This will lead to longer queue times for them but will result in better matches. Additionally, performance-based SR gains are disabled for ranks Diamond and above. This means players should focus more on teamwork than stats.

Community Update

Jeff Kaplan and team released a dev update recapping 2017, but also giving us an idea of what to expect in 2018. Hero 27 is deep in development, events will continue as we have expected it seems, and the Overwatch team is still looking to make changes to comp.

Playing Tanks

A recent interview suggests that Tanks carry a team rather than the DPS. Is that true? Jaa, Bob, and Rob discuss what the true role of a Tank is, and if they are really the carry.

New changes on the PTR and the debate about one-tricking continues, and Blizzard might be sending the wrong message.
PTR Report

If you check out the current build on the PTR you will notice that characters like Winston and Junkrat have more noticeable air control. This is a side effect of a fix made to all character movement. Bob likes it, but Jaa is skeptical. Additionally, Zenyatta mains will have more info about their Harmony and Discord targets, and Doomfist may be receiving a buff... Or a bug. We can't tell.

The One-trick Discussion

The discussion that never ends. An Overwatch dev steps into a forum post say that you can play whatever you want, as long as you are trying your best. Bob and Jaa think this is sending the wrong message for competitive players, as the overall team comp is more important than a players favorite character. Jaa & Bob also talk about ways that Blizzard can resolve this by adding new systems to Overwatch that give players more information about the matches.

Path to Pro

New info on how you can go from scrub to pro was released. On top of Open Division being available for all ranks, some Overwatch League teams are creating Academy teams to play in Contenders. This should help mold the next group of OWL pros.

Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland returns with seven new legendary skins, two new emotes, and one new highlight intro as well as a new arcade mode: Yetti Hunt. Both Bob and Jaa appear to not be too impressed.

Overwatch League Pre-Season

Last week we got our first taste of Overwatch League. Bob was pretty excited about the action. While Jaa did enjoy the matches and casting of those matches, he wasn't too thrilled about the commentary and analysis between matches.

Tokens

Jaa proposes an idea that could bring more skins to Overwatch in collaboration with companies like Marvel & DC. Blizzard could partner with those companies, and make tokens the currency for those skins. Bob gives his thoughts on the matter.

Player Warnings

In the latest patch, Blizzard included an update to the reporting system that will give players an in-game warning if they are reported. Also, if your report results in action, you will be notified in-game as well. Will this help with Toxicity?

We also discuss console players being treated as second class, and properly using the reporting system.
Patch Notes

Players should see improved matchmaking in competitive due to a patch that decreases the range of skill raking between players on the same team.

OWL Info Drop

TimeLess goes over the list of matches, which have been shaken up due to the Philadelphia Fusion backing out of pre-season exhibitions.

Blizzard has introduced League Tokens which will be used to purchase league skins for your favorite team. A team skin will be available for each character. League tokens will not drop in loot boxes and can be purchased with real money.

Overwatch League merch will be available the same day the pre-season exhibitions start.

Console Players: Second Class Citizens?

Console players have been complaining for a while that they are being treated like second-class citizens in Overwatch. We discuss this issue which has been thrust back in the forefront thanks to a forum post.

Proper Use of the Reporting System

We dig into the reporting system, and how to properly use each item since there seems to be some confusion of what should be reported and what shouldn't.

Weekly Updates

There is currently a bug where Moria can target the payload.

Mercy has a bug on the PTR were rez can be canceled.

It's a payload map, which has Jaa a bit disappointed, because he was hoping for a new game mode this year. Oh well.

Then, Jarret talks about Overwatch's new hero Moira. He doesn't think she's a good addition to the game. They also discuss the Reinhardt cinematic which was good. The best part of Overwatch however was Blizzardworld, a theme park map which Jarret did not care for because it was a payload map, but otherwise has a ton of flavor and is awesome for any Blizzard fan to experience. Nick then interviews Bob from Watchpoint Radio who is on-site at Blizzcon to talk about playing Moira on the showfloor and the various people he met at Blizzcon.

Finally, the gang talks about World of Warcraft's newest expansion, Battle for Azeroth. Everyone gushes over the cinematic, which may well be the best cinematic Blizzard has ever put out. Nick brings up Classic Wow, and Nick and Jarret get into an argument about whether WoW or Overwatch is currently making Blizzard more money. Then the gang runs through the new features coming in Battle for Azeroth which is going to be exciting. FInally, Nick interviews Katie from The Tauren & the Goblin who was at Blizzcon to talk about the giant diorama onsite and the panels and craziness of Blizzcon.

We hop into a post Jeff Kaplan made giving a small preview of what is on the horizon in terms of balance, competitive, and toxicity. One of those topics was about changes coming to Mercy, and what do you know -- they happened as we were talking about that exact issue. Mercy mains will not be pleased to find out that res will not leave them exposed, and can no longer be used on the fly to fix team mates mistakes, such as being out of position.

We also dig into the effectiveness of reoccuring holiday events, and talk what we would like to see instead. We also discuss Ana buff on the way, new Winston highlight intro, possible Hanzo buff, and more.

The community seems to have adapted to D.Va's changes quickly, the Overwatch team is going heavy on anti-toxicity, and there are some bugs and exploits flying around.
We also dig into some upcoming changes to the PTR that will punish many heroes by completely removing their ult charge if they are interrupted when activating their ultimate. Genji, Reinhardt, and Lucio seem to be the most affected, as their animations take a bit longer. Hanzo's dance before his ultimate isn't helping him either.

We also get into Blizzards recent anti-toxicity efforts, an upcoming Zarya comic, and some bugs and exploits that have been flying around.

Lagging Balls podcast join us this week to talk the latest in Overwatch, leading to probably our most not family friendly episode ever. After asking them a few questions we jump into the latest patch which brings Junkertown, D.Va, and Mercy changes. These changes are sure to shake up the meta, as well as leading to a lot of people trying to get Battle Mercy to be a thing again. Make not mistake, however, that the most important change in this patch is that Reinhardt can now change his camera view while his shield is up.

We also dive into the most recent developer update where Jeff Kaplan talks about their role in policing the community, but also pleas with the community to take a look inside itself. Jaa understands where he is coming from, but is not fully sure that the Overwatch team understands what the problem is here. After a few weekly update we hop into community questions which consists of performance tracking tools and how effective comms are overall.

Big thanks to Thorn & Thyst for coming on the show! Enjoy!

Despite being happy with getting a new character, Jaa isn't too fond of Doomfist. Melee combat isn't something he's interested in for FPS. Both Rob and Anthony like the character and plan to play him.

Remembering the last year in Overwatch, incoming changes for arcade and leavers, new bugs, bug fixes, and a final show for one of the hosts.
We get into some changes that we should be coming up soon. Tweaks are being made to Mystery Hero, and leavers will start to get perma-banned if their behavior continues. Additionally, Reinhardts hammer is finally getting fixed, just as we find out that Mercy has some bugs of her own. The #1 DPS in Overwatch has been banned for throwing, and Jaa has some important information about when you can leave a competitive match. This episode is a long one because it turns out that when you cover an entire year of an active game, it can take a while.

Our community discussion focuses on improving broadcasting for Overwatch, which manages to spur a heated conversation between Mikey and Jaa on whether or not Blizzard will allow modding tools.

Overwatch Anniversary event, recent character balance, Overwatch Contenders, and SR Boosting services.
The Overwatch Anniversary event is here, though it's not exactly what we thought it might be... Or at least what was leaked. No new hero, no new cinematic, no new game mode. However, we did get three new 3v3 maps and new rulesets for Elimination. Additionally, we got a bunch of legendary event skins. The problem being that ALL of the skins are legendary and there is no way you're going to get them all or even most of them. Each character also gets a new dance emote!

We discuss the latest in character balance, and what it means going forward. We also discuss the upcoming Overwatch Contenders league -- basically a minor league for Overwatch League. We then get into a discussion about a service Jaa didn't know existed: SR Boosting. Bob did a little digging and talks his experience talking to their customer service.

We get into discussion whether or not the community would benefit from SR decay across all platforms. We also got some stats from the Uprising event that leaves Jaa a bit disappointed in the community. Finally, we open up a community discussion on whether or not heroes should have individual levels.

We also discuss if there is any benefit to using unpopular characters to game the SR system. The theory is that characters that are played less have less data on them, and should provide an SR advantage to those who play them even fairly well. One Reddit user tested the theory, and he seems to be onto something. We also take a look at the console meta, most of which is predictable, but there are some surprises.

The changes to Bastion were put in specifically to make him more viable in other situations than sitting in a corner or behind a shield.

We also dive into recent Overwatch rumors revolving around Doomfist, and how easy it was to debunk them.

Later in the show we dive into some community feedback and start this weeks community discussion by asking if McCree needs a buff or do people just need to L2P. All that and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

Hot on the heels of the latest character balance, Blizzard is already talking about their next target: Bastion.
Speaking of Roadhog, the big guy seems to be doing a bit too good right now. We predict some possible nerfs heading his way to make him feel like less of a must pick. We also discuss the LFG experience in Overwatch, as Jaa's favorite LFG looks like it may be making a come back. After that we get into some user feedback as well.

Along with the event came long awaited character changes. Roadhog players will rejoice, while D.Va players will probably be left wondering where they fit in. Sombra players should feel a bit more useful, but we doubt we see her in the meta still. We also try a new community discussion segment this week and more.

D.Va last patch definitely made her overpowered, but this new balance is definitely leaving us wondering what D.Va's true role in Overwatch is. Her armor reduction definitely limits her survivability, but the addition on the damage nerf makes her an ineffective killer on many targets. Pharah and Junkrat feel like they can tear her apart, and even Roadhog no longer needs to fear her. It feels like a bit much, and we discuss the issue and talk about what we would like to see happen to D.Va.

Additionally, we talk some new voice lines for Valentine's day between Mercy and Genji, as well as discuss the problem how map rotation currently works.

Oasis is finally available to the public, and we talk about the Overwatch solo experience and how it can be improved.
There is a lack of news, so on this episode we are focusing on the Overwatch solo experience. It's no secret that Overwatch is can be a VERY frustrating game to play alone. Lack of cooperation, trolls, and more add to the frustration. Blizzard can take steps to help with this, and that's what we discuss. We also talk about why there are no reporting options on console, and we also discuss the Mei glitch that's getting heavy use in 3v3 elimination.

Additionally, we talk about the state of balance in the game, and what we'd like to see fixed in 2017. While Jarret and Mikey agree on somethings, they definitely have a difference in opinion on how to handle Symmetra. However, they do both agree that something needs to be done. We give predictions on 2017, and even come up with an idea for  Telltale Overwatch game. Mikey isn't so sure it will work, but after playing Tales from the Borderlands, Jarret is quite certain it would be awesome. We also talk a little bit about what we want to accomplish with WPR in 2017 and the community. That and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

Tracers gay, Torbjorn can't keep it in his pants, we hope you like Tanks, and there is still hope for Sombra.
We also discuss the pro meta displayed at MLG Vegas. We hope you like Tanks, because you’re probably going to be seeing a lot of them. Seeing how the community loves to mimic the pros, we may unfortunately be seeing a lot of 3-4 tank stacks. Solider: 76’s revived popularity may have run its course, as a beefed up D.Va appears to be shutting him down. Also, Zarya proves that you can’t nerf stupid as her kit proves powerful enough to still be used frequently in competitive play.

We also talk a bit about Sombra and how she may not be getting a fair shake. Is she too complex for the basic strategies we are seeing in Overwatch? We then get into why Blizzard should leave policing of the community to the community, and talk about how adding modding tools to the game would do nothing but help it.

Winter Wonderland also brings the new Symmetra changes we've been talking about live. Now we get to see exactly how Symmetra will play, and to be honest, she's a bit of a beefcake right now. The new changes definitely make her more viable in various situations, but at the same time, it appears that the Overwatch team didn't account for areas she already excelled in; like cooking enemies in no time. Sym feels a bit OP right now, but only time will tell if the Overwatch dev team agrees. We talk about all this and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

Starcraft II is getting some AI and Jarret is concerned this will lead to bad things. Diablo is getting retro-content in the form of Diablo I remade in Diablo III.

The PTR is testing the new placement system Overwatch is hoping to use in Competitive Season 3, so we talk a bit about those changes to help those falling Diamond players… and gloat a little. We also got a bit more information on how MMR affects SR gain/loss, and while it did help us dig a bit deeper into how SR works, it also left behind some new questions. Additionally, are console players being treated like second-class citizens by Blizzard? At least one forum user thinks so, but at least he got a reply from Jeff.

Sure, if you’re playing with the same team of six every time you hop in to comp, it may work out. However, odds are you’re not. Please remember the pro-meta only works if EVERYONE is in on it. Trying to force players into it with stubborn picks isn’t the best way to handle the situation. Your best tool in competitive mode Overwatch is communication, and using that communication to be able to adapt not only to the people you’re playing against, but also the people you’re playing with. We also discuss why it’s a good idea to be proficient in many characters, versus putting all of your chips in one.

We also get back to audience comments and questions, and continue our discussion on how to make Zenyatta’s alt-fire more useful. That and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

We also discuss Jarret’s findings regarding competitive matchmaking. While many factors contribute to the current state of competitive mode, we are going to imagine for about 10 minutes that placement matches and SR gain/loss is working perfectly. Taking that into consideration, we still found a surprising flaw in the system, but we’re not sure if Blizzard is ready to do what it takes to fix it. We also dig into patch notes and a very promising Sombra leak, as well as our normal shenanigans on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

We also talk a bit more about tweaking crosshairs and discuss some of the feedback the audience has given us on it. We also dig a bit more into Sombra speculation and what her abilities could possibly be. You’ll also hear about a few bugs, and some Halloween event speculation. That and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

Balance update on horizon for a few heroes as the community clamors for single hero pick quick play.
Another interesting changing coming from the PTR is a new “Dual-zone” mode for controllers. This should help console players and PC players that use controllers (why would you do that to yourself?) aim more precisely while also being able to turn around quickly. Too bad console doesn’t have a PTR, as we’re sure they’d get better data over there. Additionally, it appears the community is clamoring for a single pick quick play queue, or as we like to call it, unranked competitive mode. Adding a queue like this may seem like it may hurt matchmaking, but it may actually help improve quality of life for both players that don’t want to take Quick Play seriously, and those who like to use Quick Play to improve their game.

Finally, there are some changes coming to Symmetra soon, and we read a few e-mails from the audience that drum up quite the debate between Jarret and Mikey.

While on the subject of season 2, we also talk about Jeff Kaplan’s response on leaver penalties. For the most part we agree, but Jaa seems to think we need a harsher penalty for leavers. Mikey talks a bit about how he has had to abandon Mercy recently for Ana, mainly because it’s hard to find people that will protect Mercy when she needs it. We also discuss Ana’s ult, something that can be a game changer for many. What do you do when you see a glowing red Reinhardt coming your way? There are many ways to deal with Ana’s Nano boost, but we discuss our favorite and most effective methods.

All that and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

Outside of the PTR (and competitive), it’s looking like more and more people want a quick play mode with a hero limit. Blizzard is exploring ways to do this, but isn’t so fast to pull the trigger. Some people play quick play for practice, others take it more seriously. How can you please both? And how can you do it without segmenting the community too much? Discussion ensues. We also answer some questions from the listeners regarding Roadhog vs Reaper and a retort to our thoughts on D.Va last week. All that and more on this week’s episode of Watchpoint Radio.

Mash Those Buttons The PTR shows what's on the horizon for Overwatch. Nothing going on right now. Let's check it out. The PTR shows what's on the horizon for Overwatch. Nothing going on right now. Let's check it out.
We had a chance to hop on the PTR and check out what we can look forward to in Competitive Mode Season 2. The tier system is just a dressed up version of last season’s ranking system, but the changes made to how the competitive maps are played are really shaking up the game. Sudden Death, and by extension coin flip), is gone. You would barely notice, however, since most games are settled before you would even reach that point. Adding Time Bank to Assault maps and tweaking the system overall appears to have made Competitive Mode much more competitive.

Lots of buffs and nerfs are heading to live servers soon. Some were needed like Zenyatta’s Orb of Discord nerf, while others left us confused (*cough Hanzo speed increase? *cough). Also, large hitboxes are back for projectiles. Why? Eichenwalde, just announced last week, is now playable on the PTR. To be honest, we’re not liking it too much. There has been talk of how defenders seem subpar recently… Not if you play Eichenwalde. We’re going to need to have a discussion about this. We talk Eichenwalde, The Last Bastion, and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio.

We also got a lot of info from Jeff Kaplan on the upcoming changes to Competitive Mode Season 2. Sudden Death? Out of here! Skill rank? Still here, but changing. Besides the salty kind, tiers are also being reintroduced in to competitive mode. If you’ve played Starcraft 2 you might be familiar with the tier levels already.  Most of the changes are welcome, but will they help the true problems that competitive mode faces?

We also discuss upcoming character balance. Nothing is set in stone yet, but the Overwatch team has been communicating a lot of what they’ve been seeing and what options they are looking at for characters such as Zenyatta, Mercy, and Mei. The WPR team dives into these topics and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio!

Loot Boxes are still a hot topic, Sombra's dropping more clues, and are defense heroes actually best for defense?
Speaking of Loot Boxes, we opened 50 of them to get some data on drop rates. If you’re not going to listen to the show, just know that even if you buy fifty boxes you’ll probably not going to get the skin you want. Jarret did, twice, but that was beating the odds. Sombra has (kind of) popped up again, so we talk the latest in Sombra Watch. There was an interesting post in the Overwatch forums regarding defenders. Do they need buffs, or are we just playing them wrong?  Additionally, Overwatch celebrates 15 million players as well as gives us some info on what we should expect at the end of the competitive season. Is it enough to get Jarret to come back, or will he keep hunting for Summer Games loot boxes? All this and more on this week’s episode of Watchpoint Radio.

In addition to that, the community has been kicking up dust recently about both Symmetra’s nerf on console and Mercy seemingly being useless. Both could be knee-jerk reactions to changes in the games meta, but both could be very real issues that need to be addressed. We talk about both. We also talk about Athena possibly becoming playable, recent patch notes, and this week’s Watchpointers on Zenyatta.

Mash Those Buttons Round 2 of Overwatch Beta has just kicked off. Jaa and Emery talk the good and bad that came with the updates. Round 2 of Overwatch Beta has just kicked off. Jaa and Emery talk the good and bad that came with the updates.
In this episode talk about the new progression system – how it works, what kind of rewards, and how deeply you can customize your character. Blizzard has revealed how they plan to monetize the game (after the initial $40-$60 of course), so we discuss how we think that will impact the game as well as try to predict the exchange rate for RL money to OW currency. We go through the LONG list of character balance updates, as well as a few general changes as well. Most character balances feel right, while some don’t sit too well with Jarret and Jason. Additionally, Blizzard has made some changes to the UI, added in some config options players have been asking for, and added a brand new career menu so you can bask in your own glory. All this and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio!
