    • Fusion Driver

      • Movement speed penalty reduced from 30% to 20%
    • Protective Barrier

      • Health reduced from 900 to 600
    • Fortify

      • Cooldown decreased from 10 seconds to 8 seconds
  • Sigma

    Ability Changes

    • Experimental Barrier

      • Health reduced from 1500 to 900
      • Barrier health regeneration rate reduced from 150 to 120 health per second
    • Kinetic Grasp

      • Cooldown reduced from 13 seconds to 10 seconds
      • Damage-to-shield gain ratio increased from 40% to 60%
  • Reinhardt

    Ability Changes

    • Barrier Field

      • Health reduced from 2000 to 1600
      • Movement speed penalty reduced from 50% to 25%
    • Steadfast (Passive)

      • Knockback resistance increased from 30% to 50%
    • Developer Comment: The above changes to armor, Orisa, Sigma, and Reinhardt are aimed at decreasing the overall amount time players spend damaging barriers while improving the individual heroes in other areas. This is a significant change to the pace of the game and we'll be monitoring these heroes closely to ensure they retain impactful gameplay in the tank role.
  • Moira

    Ability Changes

    • Biotic Grasp

      • Healing reduced from 4 to 3.25 (80 HP/s to 65 HP/s)
    • Developer Comment: Moira's primary heal has proven to be too potent, largely due to its ability to heal multiple targets.
  • D.Va

    Ability Changes

    • Defense Matrix

      • Cooldown decreased from 2 seconds to 1.5 seconds
    • Developer Comment: With role locks in place there is some room to improve D.Va's impact as a tank, so we’re partially reverting a previous change which increased Defense Matrix’s cooldown.
  • Widowmaker

    Ability Changes

    • Grappling Hook

      • Cooldown increased from 10 to 12 seconds
    • Developer Comment: With barriers having less uptime, Widowmaker will be even more effective at locking down long sight lines. This change weakens her mobility so she can still be reasonably countered.

    Bug Fixes

    • Turning off the toggle zoom control option for Widowmaker while zoomed in no longer remains stuck in the zoomed state
  • Torbjörn

    Ability Changes

    • Overload

      • Cooldown decreased from 12 to 10 seconds
    • Developer Comment: Torbjörn has difficulty in extended team fights once his turret is eliminated and Overload has been used. This change allows Torbjörn to be able to rely on his Overload more often.
  • Genji

    Ability Changes

    • Shuriken

      • Ammo increased from 24 to 30
    • Developer Comment: As average hero survivability has gone up over time, Genji can sometimes have difficulty finishing off his targets. Loosening his ammunition constraints will help give him a small boost.
  • Zarya

    Ability Changes

    • Particle Cannon (Secondary Fire)

      • Explosion radius increased from 2 to 2.5 meters
      • Ammo cost decreased from 25 to 20
    • Developer Comment: Zarya's overall damage output is in a good spot but the secondary fire was left feeling a little too weak after the last set of changes.
  • Doomfist

    Bug Fixes

    • The default circle is now hidden when using advanced reticle settings
    • Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented the sound effect of Doomfist's Rising Uppercut from playing
    • Fixed a bug where Seismic Slam could land on an enemy's head while playing FFA modes
  • Junkrat

    Bug Fixes

    • Fixed a bug where Junkrat grenades would not explode when slowly rolling down steep inclines
    • Orisa
    • Fixed an issue where Orisa's halt projectile could sometimes appear to go through the ground when viewed in 3rd person.
  • Roadhog

    Bug Fixes

    • Fixed a bug that prevented Roadhog's hook from damaging turrets and barriers
Maps
  • Maps

    Bug Fixes

    • Black Forest (1v1) - Fixed a bug that allowed Reaper to Shadow Step through the breakable doors

Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – November 13, 2019

A new Overwatch patch is in development and now available for testing! To share your feedback or report any issues, please post in the PTR Feedback or PTR Bug Report forums.

Please note that the below patch notes only include changes currently available for testing on the PTR. While many of these changes may also be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a future patch, the PTR is PC-only and only reflects changes coming specifically to that platform.

INTRODUCING: “WHILE YOU WAIT”

Coming with this patch, we will be removing the current “Skirmish” feature that allowed you to spar while waiting to start a game and replacing it with a brand new option called “While You Wait”.

When in queue, players will now be prompted to pick, if they want to, between the following game modes:

  • Practice Range - Now available to be entered as a group
  • Skirmish - Spar freely with other players without keeping track of score
  • Deathmatch - Compete for the top place on the scoreboard
  • Custom Game - Pick a custom game from the Custom Game Browser or create your own game mode
  • Note that Custom Game will have to have the new setting "Allow players who are matchmaking" available in order to be selected

All “While You Wait” game modes are optional and can be accessed by a single player or as a group, but only the group leader can decide which mode to pick.

WORKSHOP UPDATES

  • Custom Games - Practice Range Mode
  • New Workshop Values
    • Game Mode
    • Current Game Mode
  • New Workshop setting
    • "Allow players who are matchmaking": allows players who are matchmaking to participate in the Custom Game created
