Overwatch Patch Notes – April 19, 2016 (beta)

April 15, 2016 (beta) • • • • • List of Patches • • • • • April 21, 2016 (beta)

GeneralEdit

Progression RewardsEdit

  • Portrait Frames
    • “Gray” portrait frame design removed (levels 1-100)
    • All remaining portrait frame designs will now shift down one promotion as a result (i.e. players level 1-100 will now have a bronze frame, players level 100-200 will now have a bronze frame with a star, etc.)
  • Removed some of the less popular sprays
    • Note: These sprays may return in future content patches
    • All heroes will have the same number of hero-specific sprays

Map Balance ChangesEdit

HanamuraEdit

  • The map has been temporarily disabled to address an issue affecting spawn room doors

Route 66Edit

  • Slowed the payload by 10%
  • Adjusted placement of the health packs across the map

Developer Comments: We've noticed that attackers are winning more often than we'd like on Route 66, so we've made some adjustments to the payload speed and health pack placement to try to bring the attacker win rate more in line with our other escort maps.

Volskaya IndustriesEdit

  • Moved initial spawn points to further back

Developer Comments: We're also seeing attackers win more often than we'd like on Volskaya Industries, so we've pushed spawn points back a little bit in the library to help defenders hold objective A.

Bug FixesEdit
