• Nelle ultime ore molti giocatori di Overwatch sono preoccupati da diversi nerf e potenziamenti che sembrano aver fatto il proprio ingresso nell'ultimo PTR, specialmente un deciso depotenziamento della Biomanipolazione di Moira.

    Ma Tim Ford, Lead Engineer for Gameplay Systems, rassicura che questi cambiamenti sono stati causati da un nuovo sistema che l'abilità usa per colpire i propri bersagli, ancora in fase di testing. Allo stesso modo, un'altra modifica simile ha potenziato in maniera abbastanza significativa la Resurrezione di Mercy e alcune abilità di Symmetra.

    In ogni caso, Ford assicura che entrambi questi problemi saranno risolti nel corso del PTR per ripristinare l'equilibrio della patch attualmente live.

    Hi everyone! We wanted to give you a heads up on what’s happening with the targeting on Moira’s Biotic Grasp.

    On the PTR, we made a number of improvements to the mechanism that Moira uses to select a target. Now players can more accurately select a target when multiple targets are in the field of view (which resolves issues like this: https://streamable.com/rosvo), and the new system can better discern which target is closest to the player's reticle when multiple targets are valid.

    When we made this change, we did our best to make the everything feel as close to her original system as possible, but since the new mechanism uses a different functionality, it didn’t convert perfectly for a number of heroes. Generally, the larger heroes are a little harder to target, while the smaller heroes are much closer to her original behavior. The training bots also need to be adjusted, as they are by far the worst offender in the new system.

    Since it wasn't our intention to do anything but improve Moira's targeting, we’re hoping to test a new configuration on the PTR either late this week or early next.

    Thank you so much for surfacing the issue for us; these reports are incredibly useful for us when it comes to tracking down bugs.

    Thank you for responding, Tim. Hopefully this mess gets sorted out. Does this new system have anything to do with Symmetra's supposed buffed lock on range?

    The inconsistencies with Moira are unrelated to Symmetra's increased lock on range. That is a separate defect that is also affecting Mercy Rez and a few other AoE abilities. We'll get a fix for those up on PTR next week.Again, thank you all for your help. Hopefully a thorough dose of tryptophan over the weekend will improve our math skills.
