I'm not sure, I don't think I'll be on until later - 10-ish, maybe? Will be on a bit on Sunday too.

:)) :)) That was amazing. Went for a cheeky loop round behind them and no-one was guarding the back door!

I definitely need to play Reaper more; I'm always too conservative to pick him.

Might get on tomorrow night for some but away on Saturday and most of Sunday.

Hanzo and reaper buffed.

Reaper now fills his ammo when entering wraith form.

Hanzo charge takes 10% less on his bow and if you charge his bow before you climb a wall, it'll still be charged when you get to top/off wall.

Solider damage output dropped from 20 to 19.

Some tweaks to other heroes like Orissa and Reinhardt. But those 3 the main ones.

The Orisa change is bigger than Reaper imo, having an 8 second cooldown on her barrier is really good. Unless you're constantly focussing the barrier (and so not actually defending yourself or generating charge) she going to have a barrier up pretty much all the time. Rein can't do that, so even though his charge/ult are generally better (particularly on attack) I think Orisa is going to become that bit more useful when holding a choke.

Good news on Soldier though, he was a bit silly. I do worry about Pharah though, Soldier's damage falloff means he can't always reliably kill her anyway so if it's toned down she's going to be even stronger.

I'm all over that Reaper change!

Fair comment RE: Pharah though. Need another reliable hero to counter her really.

Anyone know when Season 4 ends?

My pro Mcree/Widow skills can make mincemeat of pharah :D

Speaking of McCree, I'm annoyed he's not had any attention. Guy needs some love, a few cooldown tweaks or a more useful combat roll (either invincible frames, or a Genji dash-style reset on kill, or both) and a slightly longer effective range would help him a lot. He's not good enough at the moment - not even niche or high skill, just a bit crap.

Agree, he just needs a slight bit of work to become an excellent choice.

Love rolling him in quick play, he's a fun hero to play as when just relaxing.

Yeah, some of his kit just doesn't make sense compared to other heroes either. Like his flashbang vs Roadhogs hook - flashbang has a small AOE but I think hook has a lower cooldown, puts people right in front of you for an instant kill, there's no weird head bobble so headshots post-hook are easy, longer range, drags people out of position. FB should be closer to hooks level.

I think they wanted that flashbang to be anti-tracer/genji, which it is, but that's it. When Roadhogg can hook those two, and every other fucker from far away, I see your point.

Sunday evening if anyone is free?

Bank Holiday monday this week, and the missus is away. So give me a shout.

Also went on a 13 kill streak last night on Defense-Hollywood last night. With Hanzo.

Patch out.

1.6 gb.

Genji buffed
Reaper buffed
Hanzo buffed

Changes to Orisa/Reinhardt

Solider nerf.

All the new skins added for the new event etc.

Time to #hanzoOnAttack

Although I slightly kid, 10% reduction on the time it takes to charge a Hanzo arrow, is seemingly on paper, quite huge.

Did some of the arcade games to get my free lootboxes last night.

I like the new arena maps.

Can't wait for some mystery heroes over the weekend.
