Overwatch

The latest Overwatch map, Blizzard World, is ready for testing on the PTR. Part Assault and part Escort, the map is an amusement park that mostly pays tribute to Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo. It's a fun idea for sure, but based on Chris' impressions out of BlizzCon, I've lowered my expectations a little.

Still, with this in the works and Moira in the live game, I'm in the mood for Overwatch again.

Today's PTR patch also lets you remove AI characters in the custom game lobby (right click, then "Remove All Bots") and it introduces some assorted bug fixes:

General

  • Fixed an issue that caused the arcade card for Limited Duel and Mystery Duel to not list all currently disabled characters
  • Fixed an issue that prevented certain sound effects from playing when navigating the Options menu with a controller

Heroes

  • Fixed a visual bug that caused Ana's Biotic Rifle ammo clip to detach when her Captain Amari skin was equipped
  • Fixed a bug that caused Doomfist's Seismic Slam to create performance drops when repeatedly used with no cooldown
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Mei's Cryo-freeze from clearing the healing debuff caused by Ana's Biotic Grenade
  • Fixed a visual bug with Moira's Biotic Orb that sometimes caused Biotic Grasp's healing spray effects to display instead
  • Fixed a bug that prevented Moira from being able to pass through enemies when using Fade
  • Fixed a bug that caused Moira's eyelashes to detach from her face during her Heroic highlight intro
  • Fixed a visual issue with Moira's Oasis skin that caused her knees to clip through her knee guards while crouched
  • Fixed a bug that caused Reaper's shotguns to animate incorrectly when discarded on the ground
  • Fixed an issue that prevented highlights captured by Zenyatta players from recording correctly when the Cultist skin was equipped

Maps

  • Fixed a bug that caused a performance drop when players shot at the gold coin piles in the last Defender spawn of Junkertown

I really want to see the bug that caused "Moira's eyelashes to detach from her face."
