New PTR is up, buffs to Junkrat, Orisa, Roadhog and Widowmaker. Along with that it goes into detail about deathmatch:

Looking forward to the Junkrat and Orisa changes, if this is anything to go by Junkrat can now triple jump and hopefully Orisa's weapon will a bit a more practical to use.

Never mind the triple jump, Junkrat will be able to kill Mei, Reaper and Doomfist outright and severely damage the tanks. I feel Orisa has been getting plenty of buffs and is going to leave Reinhardt behind.

killing "outright" probably won't happen, you can't place two mines at once because if you throw another mine after having already placed one, the older one disappears, it can probably happen in a tight corridor but it honestly seems like it's just better to shoot with his primary fire instead. His ult is probably in good terms now though (still squishy, but the extra speed and the wall ride buff are very good).

Reaper's new skin just made me want to play him more, and god, I'm loving the new him! (I haven't played Reaper for AGES)

Definitely getting him a Gold weapon (which looks amazing with his new skin) when Season 5 ends.

I got the Sombra skin, First one and it's the costume I wanted the most so this is just great :D . I think the other ones I want is the Soldier and Widow one.

I just got three new legendary skins in one crate and only one of them was from the event., and even that one wasn't one of the ones I wanted.

The gods of RNG are cruel.

Looks like D.Va is getting a rework:

https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20758746118?page=2#post-30

Quote

    Actually, we've made some significant changes to D.Va internally and have been testing them for a while now. Here are the changes we've made:

    Defense Matrix: Energy drain increased by 2x. This means her effective uptime for this ability has been reduced by 50%.

    Boosters: D.Va can now use her Fusion Cannons while flying.

    New ability - Micro Missiles: D.Va launches a long salvo of small missiles that explode on impact, dealing damage in a small radius around them. This ability can be used while using her other abilities or firing her Fusion Cannons.

    The combination of these changes allow her to play more aggressively and deal more damage, at the cost of being able to Defense Matrix as often as before. Defense Matrix still remains an extremely powerful tool when timed correctly, but the reduced uptime means D.Va won't be able to use it nearly as often overall.

    Her new Micro Missiles ability in combination with her ability to fire while flying allow for some more aggressive play, as well as opening up some new options versus heroes such as Pharah.

    Overall the goal here is to reduce her reliance on Defense Matrix and make her more fun to play. As far as balancing goes, we want to nerf Defense Matrix as an ability, not D.Va as a hero.

    She has been a ton of fun to play with these changes, and we're looking forward you letting you guys play with them as well. Hopefully we'll have a new PTR up soon!

That's fine, I thought the game needed more DPS heroes anyway

Tbqf her DM is pretty insane, I like her defensive style but this ability is a little too good. I think it's quite crazy that her "shield" is better than Reinhardt's or Orisa's when those two are supposed to be the anchor defensive tanks in comparison.

Seems that Mei short leak from months ago was true.

Gonna watch that animation when I get home, finally an animated short featuring Mei :D (Edit: saw It, It was pretty good as always, I love these animated shorts)

I believe the leak was about "Anchora" (Orisa), correct? Neat
