So you may have noticed that spray that spoiled competitive 6v6 elimination.

It's up now.

A PTR patch just got released and it includes some pretty interesting changes, highlights are the Hanzo rework and a new payload map (Rialto)! Other changes include Genji, Junkrat, Lucio and Tracer.

Quote
A new Overwatch patch is currently in development and now available for testing. To share your feedback or report and issue, please post in the PTR Feedback 50 or PTR Bug Report 13 forums.

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

PATCH HIGHLIGHTS

New Escort Map: Rialto

Rialto was home to Talon agent Antonio Bartalotti’s sprawling estate and the backdrop to the infamous “Venice Incident,” a turning point for Overwatch and Talon. The Italian government has taken great steps to preserve Venice, and the results are striking. Tourists visiting this picturesque town can sample the regional cuisine, enjoy a relaxing gondola ride, visit Galleria D’arte Omnica, or simply take in the sights with a stroll along the canal.

HERO UPDATES

Genji

Deflect

    Hitbox size has been reduced

Developer Comments: The hitbox on Genji’s Deflect was big enough that it would sometimes reflect projectiles that were pretty far away from him. We’ve tightened up the hitbox, which should solve this problem while still fully protecting him from projectiles that would hit him from the front.

Hanzo

Storm Bow

    Projectile speed increased from 85 to 100

Sonic Arrow

    Cooldown decreased from 20 seconds to 12 seconds

    Duration decreased from 10 seconds to 6 seconds

    Radius decreased from 10 meters to 7 meters

New Abilities

Lunge

    Press jump while in the air to leap horizontally

Storm Arrows

    Replaces his existing Scatter Arrow ability

    Hanzo can now rapidly fire up to 6 arrows that deal reduced damage but are always fired at full power

Developer Comments: The goal of these Hanzo changes is to allow him to have new options and maintain his high damage output, while removing the frustration of fighting against the old Scatter Arrow. Hanzo is now much more mobile with his new Lunge ability, and with the combination of the bow projectile speed increase and the new Storm Arrows ability he can now deal his high damage more consistently than ever before.

Junkrat

Frag Launcher

    Projectile size decreased from 0.3 to 0.2

RIP-Tire

    Tire movement speed decreased from 13 to 12

Developer Comments: These changes are aimed at lowering some of the most frustrating parts about playing against Junkrat. Decreasing the Frag Launcher’s projectile size means he will have to aim a bit more carefully to land powerful direct hits and slowing the RIP-Tire’s movement speed gives his opponents slightly more time to destroy it before it detonates.

Lúcio

Wall Ride

    Wall riding is less likely to be interrupted along a single surface

    Can now go around corners (both outside corners, and inside corners) without having to leave the wall

    Can now land back on the same wall after leaping away, provided his leap takes him far enough away from the original jumping off point.

Soundwave

    No longer consumes ammo

Developer Comments: Wall Ride has been significantly overhauled to allow it to function more smoothly across more areas of every map. Lúcio players should instantly notice a huge improvement in where and how Wall Ride can be used. In addition, Sonic Amplifier’s Soundwave ability was unnecessarily controlled by both a cooldown and an ammo cost, so we’re removing the ammo cost.

Tracer

Pulse Bomb

    Max damage decreased from 400 to 300

Developer Comments: Pulse Bomb was too good at killing tanks, who can be easy to stick due to their size. This damage reduction makes it less powerful as a tank-destroyer, while keeping it lethal against most other heroes.

GAME BROWSER AND CUSTOM GAMES

General

    Mercy’s Regeneration (passive ability) can now be turned off in Custom Game settings

    Settings for Hanzo’s Lunge and Storm Arrow abilities can now be found in the Custom Game settings

BUG FIXES

General

    Fixed a bug that caused the option “Invite to a Custom Game” to appear while in the Tutorial and Practice Range

A.I.

    Fixed a bug that prevented training bots from returning to their original position and behavior after being hit with an ability (e.g. Lúcio’s Soundwave)

    Fixed a bug that caused bots to use the wrong route when tracking down the player if their target jumped off a ledge

    Fixed a bug that caused bots to get stuck on the siege tank in the StarCraft area of Blizzard World

Game Browser and Custom Game

    Fixed a bug that caused custom game invites to persist on the invitee’s screen

Heroes

    Fixed a bug that prevented Bastion’s Zwing Zwing Zwing voice line from playing if the Null Sector skin was equipped

    Fixed a bug that prevented Genji’s melee attack from making sound effects

    Fixed a bug that prevented Genji’s golden weapon variant from displaying its golden sheen when some skins were equipped

    Fixed a bug that allowed Junkrat’s RIP-TIRE to be immune to the freeze effects of Mei’s Endothermic Blaster

    Fixed a bug that allowed Lúcio to move around while caught in Junkrat’s Steel Trap

    Fixed a bug that allowed Lúcio to travel straight up using Wall Ride

    Fixed a bug that prevented crowd control abilities from affecting Resurrect (e.g. McCree’s Flashbang)

    Fixed a bug that prevented Moira’s flask from displaying in her Erlenmeyer victory pose when an Overwatch League skin was equipped

    Fixed a bug that caused Reaper’s Hellfire Shotguns to float when previewing his Dance emote in Hero Gallery

    Fixed a bug that caused the camera to not focus correctly when viewing Roadhog’s Mug Shot victory pose

    Fixed a bug that caused Roadhog’s Chain Hook to float during his Footsteps highlight intro

    Fixed a bug that prevented the laser sight from Sombra’s Machine Pistol golden variant from tapering at its end if her Talon skin equipped

    Fixed a bug that caused Widowaker’s HUD to disappear if she used Widow’s Kiss while looking through the scope

    Fixed a bug that caused the logos on Symmetra’s Overwatch League skins to appear faded when viewed in the Hero Gallery

    Fixed a bug that caused the logos on Torbjörn’s Overwatch League skins to appear faded when viewed in the Hero Gallery

Maps

    Fixed a bug that caused bots to get stuck walking into the side of the Rikimaru Ramen Shop on Hanamura

    Fixed a bug that allowed players to place turrets in unintended locations on Horizon Lunar Colony

    Fixed a bug that allowed players to reach unintended locations in Horizon Lunar Colony

    Fixed a bug that caused the pig head on the bike to float after the bike had been destroyed in Junkertown

    Fixed a bug that allowed players to place turrets and Symmetra’s Teleporter in unintended locations in Junkertown

The update that takes Hanzo's scatter arrows to the back and shoots it is now live.

Also there's a new map.

A new Mercy skin is available from May 8th to 21st, and it's actually a charity for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (it costs $14.99, and 100% of its purchase price of it is going to be donated to the foundation)

The new Symmetra rework is up on PTR, and she's a completely different character.  Her primary fire is stronger, but it doesn't lock on any more so it's closer to Zarya's primary.   She can launch her sentries onto walls at a distance, but she can only place three at a time.  Teleporter is now a regular special instead of an ult;  one portal spawns on Symmetra's location, and the other one gets manually placed with the same range as Reaper's teleport.  Gonna have to completely relearn how to use her.

The other notable thing is that the Attack and Defense hero categories are being combined into a single class called Damage instead.
