Overwatch‘s newest experimental card is right here, and it doesn’t bear excellent news for followers of Echo, Tracer, or Zenyatta. Blizzard has posted patch notes to its blog that element nerfs for the trio of heroes.
Echo’s Tri-Shot ammo has been decreased to 12 from 15, and the length of Focusing Beam has been decreased to 2 seconds from 2.5. Blizzard explains that the injury character was faring too properly in opposition to high-health targets, so she’s being nerfed in a manner that fixes the difficulty whereas retaining her lethality in opposition to squishier targets.
Talking of squishy, everybody’s favorite Brit can also be getting reined in. The injury of Tracer’s pistols has been rescaled from 13-23 metres to 12-20. Blizzard says the concept behind Tracer is that she’s deadly when up shut and that she was doing too properly at medium ranges. Lastly, Zenyatta’s orbs of Concord and Discord are being slowed down from 120 to 90. Orb of Discord’s injury amplification can also be being shrunk from 30% to 25%. Blizzard says that the omnic is proving to be too efficient at enabling team-wide injury proper now, so these modifications ought to sluggish him down a bit.
As the cardboard implies, these modifications are experimental, so they might nonetheless change. As a former Tracer fundamental, I can solely hope.
The Overwatch 2 release date continues to be a little bit of a thriller, however hey, Blizzcon 2021 isn’t far-off, so perhaps we’ll hear one thing quickly.
