Blizzard Land is out now. It's a pretty good map, but I feel like I'd appreciate it more if I'd ever played any of the games it's referencing. There's boatload of exposed straightaways and tight, enclosed areas so it's pretty much tailor-made for Widowmakers and Moiras.
A few changes that are being worked on accidentally found their way into the most recent patch. This is unintentional and we're working on removing these.We're planning on putting up a new PTR soon that has these changes (and more), so consider this a sneak peak.Here are the complete changes (so far) for Sombra that we are looking to test out soon:* No longer gains ult from health pack healing* Weapon Spread decreased by 10%* Hacking speed increased from 0.8s to 0.65s* Hacking will disable more abilities. Basically any ability that requires a button press will also be disabled. Here is a list:Genji - Double Jump/Wall ClimbPharah - Hover JetsHanzo - Wall ClimbLucio - currently running Crossfade song will be disabledMercy - Angelic DescentThe idea here is to take some power out of her ult (and awkwardness of ult gain through health packs), and give her more power and usefulness in the rest of her kit.
Mei Increasing freeze duration from 1 second to 1.5s Decreasing ammo requirement for icicles from 25 to 20 per shotSombra Translocator time increased from 15 seconds to 20 seconds Health packs no longer increase ult charge Speed of hack reduced from 0.8s to 0.65s Spread on main gun reduced from 3 to 2.7 Hack now disables the following abilities: Genji—Cyber-agility Hanzo—Wall Climb Pharah—Hover Jets Lúcio—Healing Boost and Speed Boost (turns off current song entirely), Wall Ride Mercy—Angelic Descent Opportunist (wallhacks on low health targets) Now activates when enemies’ health bars are at less than 100%, up from 50% health EMP is no longer blocked by small objects (e.g. sign posts)HanzoChanges not yet on PTR but should be coming soon: Horizontal leap to be used more for disengaging than engaging Secondary ability replacing scatter arrow that allows you to shoot 5 arrows at a much faster fire rate, no mention on whether or not these are full damage arrows or not.Doomfist Hand Cannon ammo recovery rate increased from 0.8 seconds to 0.65 seconds per bullet
There was a clarification regarding Sombra's Opportunist passive. It wasn't changed, they simply added the ability for Sombra to see enemy heath bars if they took any damage.
