Overwatch Lunar Event 2019 patch notes

Hero Updates


  • Damage reduction from armour reduced from -5 to -3

Developer Comments: This change is most noticeable for heroes who shoot fast or in series, like shotguns, and do more than damage per shot. For example, the Soldier: 76 heavy pulse rifle now does 16 damage per shot to armoured opponents out of 14 (an increase of nearly 15%). Overall, the armour was a little too strong, significantly as the heroes healed quickly and often. This change will help more heroes fight higher armoured enemies.

  • Brigitte
  • Rally: Now, its maximum duration is 30 seconds
  • D.Va
  • Defense Matrix: Cooling time increased from 1 second to 2 seconds
  • Reaper
  • Harvest: Life theft rose from 30 per cent to 50 per cent of the damage
  • Bug fixes

Earlier, Blizzard revealed that it has

five or six Overwatch heroes at a time.

The Overwatch team has a variety of great

heroes to select from to announce and add to the game.

Although the thought process behind them is not the same.

“There are currently five or six different

hero prototypes in use,” Overwatch Production

Director Chacko Sonny said. “Some attraction ideas

like ‘this would be a good addition to this

category,’ and sometimes it’s backed by a great

sketch we want to make [a hero]. I don’t want to

present a picture where they all come from in the

same way.” The inspiration comes from many different

places, and there’s a lot of discussion going on at the

time about who is the next hero and what is the right

thing for the game at that time. “

In this note, we asked if Overwatch has a

the specific number of heroes in mind.

The game was launched with 21 heroes,

and has added eight more because Sonny

claims the studio is driven by what the

heroes add to the gameplay, not just the

the number of players available.

“They’ve all come up with something new

and changed the strategy people play the game,”

he said. “There have been cases where we are

editing some things since the release, but we

think there is fertile ground for the

introduction of new hero models.

I know for sure about some of the

prototypes I have recently played,

I am very excited about the future.”
