Welcome to the The Tracer Tribunal, the Fever Clan’s Overwatch Newsletter. This week we discuss the most recent patch notes, Game Nights, the game heads, and a look at the new hero Batptiste.
Tuesday Game Night Lead (8pm):
Chronubis (Company Commander)
Thursday Game Night Lead (6:30):
Patch Notes (February 19)
(Highlights of the notes)
Beam-type damage is now reduced by 20% when hitting armor
Damage over time effects are no longer mitigated by armor
Damage boost is now applied when a projectile is fired rather than when it hits a target
Knockback distance is now more consistent
Heroes that are flying can now be knocked back and slowed
Also there are individual reworks for characters. See the above link for the complete list.
On the PTR they are currently doing some reworks to Reapers teleport. They are making it so he can now teleport mid-air, and also onto breakable surfaces such as railings. The general buzz, although it is early yet, is that this may bring back Reapers popularity in comp.
There is a new hero out for arcade and quick play! The new Hero is called Baptiste. He is a support healer who uses a three round burst gun, which both heals and damages.
His abilities are Regenerative Burst, Immortality Field, Amplification Matrix, and Exo Boots. The Regenerative Burst is an AOE explosion of healing to nearby enemies. The explosion comes from Baptiste’s own body. The Immortality Field acts much like a shield barrier, however instead of having a health based expiration, it is time based. The Amplification Matric is similar to the Immortality shield, in that it is a time based ability which has similar graphics to the shield as well. This ability amplifies any projectiles that pass through it.
Feel free to check him out and give us your thoughts on his usefulness in comps.
Here is a link to the Overwatch overview of him:
Comp Season ends on April 30th
