1.40 PTR Concluded

Post
2 days ago - RomainDijoux-1354 on Blizzard Forums - Thread - Direct

Thanks for helping us test the game! We are now concluding the 1.40 Public Test where a lot of Dummy Bots were bravely obliterated in the Workshop for the greater good.

The Public Test Region will not be accessible until we update it with new content in the future. As usual, we will leave the PTR Forums active so you can continue to provide any additional feedback and bug reports.

Thank you for participating!

Hey there,

Balance changes take time and there will of course be more to come. We’ve just barely entered into 2-2-2 role queue and released a new hero at the same time. It’s important to collect statistics/data, as well as feedback to make informed decisions.

Reverting all balance changes over the last year is unlikely to happen. Any hero change could potentially affect a meta to some degree, but not all changes are directly targeted at the current meta, if that makes sense.

For some transparency, we’ve known for awhile that we would be moving to a 2-2-2 format (it required a long time to implement) and not all changes over the last year were directly targeted at affecting the 3-3 GOATS meta (eg. Soldier, McCree, Junkrat buffs).

The goal of the changes that actually were aimed at GOATS was not to kill it entirely but to weaken it enough, without destroying the individual heroes, that other new comps could arise to compete with it. Though it took a long ti...

Career Profile Bug

Post

Hey everyone,

We’ve identified a bug that prevents Competitive Season 18 stats from being shown in the Career Profile until placement matches are finished in any role or playing one match in each role. We’re actively investigating solutions and will update with more information when we have a fix.

Thanks for the reports!

Now that we’ve brought competitive back I’m closing this topic to avoid confusion. Feel free to continue discussions around matchmaking and role queue in other appropriate threads.

⚠️ Disabled Competive

Comment

The Role Queue Beta season has ended and Season 18 did start but due to reported issues of players getting placed in severely different SRs than normal, they disabled Competitive to investigate.

Hey everyone, when Season 18 went live matchmaking values from prior seasons weren’t being respected. We’re extending the Role Queue Beta Season while we work on a fix for this bug, we expect to be ready for Season 18 early next week.

(A side effect of extending the beta season, the competitive card will say the season is ending in less than a minute.)
