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.


GAME NIGHTS


Tuesday Game Night Lead (8pm):


Chronubis (Company Commander)


Thursday Game Night Lead (6:30):


Divine Kitty


Patch Notes (February 19)
https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/news/patch-notes/pc/

(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.


PTR Note:

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.




New Hero!!!



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
