But i’m wondering why even set a time limit given how the damage of this mode is already drastically reduced on top of the fact he has reduced movement speed in this mode.
If you can, try to avoid comparing the damage numbers you saw on OWL stream with what you see in retail.
It’s all relative.
Can you confirm anything about the Doom rework? How many abilities are planned to stay?
To manage expectations: nope.
Can we maybe get a version of the 5v5 match played in OWL without the casters voices?
We’re seeing what we can do to get the rest of the footage out in the wild.
Hey while i’m here i gotta ask, any reason the new turret mode was given a set time limit?
From the Hero balance and design folks:
Geoff G: We decided to add both a duration and a cooldown to the new Turret mode to allow us to keep the ability tuned to have a high damage output, while still taking into account his newfound mobility.
How does bastions ult work with regard to ceilings? Does it just ignore them? Does he have to be in open? Can target not take cover in a room?
Checked in with Hero balance and design on this to make sure:
Geoff G: Like Doomfist’s Meteor Strike, Bastions new ult, Configuration: Artillery, ignores ceilings. Rooms may not provide safe cover.
Do you know when the next rework might be revealed or that we can get information about?
Just to manage expectations: that’s not something I would reveal here on the forum.
If specific changes aren’t ready to be discussed yet, would you mind telling us how different the developer’s current test build is from the build we saw at the last OW stream with the Bastion/Sombra reworks?
The build we’re playing on for our daily playtests is close to what you saw on stream. A lot of the changes that have been mentioned, like the double Zarya shield pool and adjusted barrier values, were present and seen in the exhibition match.
That shouldn’t be taken as any indication of where we are vis-a-vis hero reworks. There are plenty of smaller playtests focused on testing other changes that haven’t made it into the main playtest build. Just as there are stages of public development and testing (like the experimental card and PTR), we have varying stages of testing internally.
is there a possibility we will get confirmed tank changes soon?
We’re not quite at the point where we’d be discussing those changes. Hopefully soon.
Bastion’s Grenade also seems to be able to allow him to rocket jump…
Bouncy Bastion is terrifying.
