Description

Welcome to the Omnic Lab. We’re a podcast that focuses on the strategies inside of the game of Overwatch. We learn through trial and error in the lab, even if things get a bit crazy and blow up sometimes! We’ll brew up team composition strategies, stir in some tips to play better, and hopefully equip listeners with the instruments they need to gain a strategic edge!

Brigitte is a hybrid tank/healer, and lately we’ve been reducing her effectiveness by reducing the power of her non-healing functionality, but we want to make sure she is still a viable pick so we’re increasing the uptime of her <strong>Inspire passive</strong> to help increase her overall healing output.</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Doomfist</strong>:</p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Rising Uppercut</strong>: Loss of Air control down 3s -> 0.6s</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Seismic Slam</strong>: Max range down 20m -> 15m</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Seismic Slam</strong>: Victims no longer lose air control when being pulled in</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Meteor Strike: Inner ring damage radius up 1.5m -> 2.0m (still deals 300 DMG)</strong></p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Meteor Strike: Max DMG outside the inner ring down 300 -> 200</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>This is where the falloff happens, still reduces the DMG down to 15 at max range</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Comments</strong>: Doomfist’s high mobility allows him to engage and disengage from extremely long ranges. Decreasing the range of his targeted aerial version of Seismic Slam requires him to get closer before engaging an enemy and makes it slightly harder for him to escape from combat. The loss of air control on Rising Uppercut was a frustrating mechanic for players, but it allowed Doomfist to set up combos. We’ve found a decent middle ground by limiting the time Doomfist has to line up his next move.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Comments Nov. 20: The PTR Doomfist changes are all about trying to give his enemies more opportunities to effectively fight back, and these changes are no exception. The Meteor Strike changes will make it harder to secure a “free” kill on heroes without mobility such as Zenyatta or Ana, while still preserving its max potential damage when aimed well or when combined with other abilities such as Graviton Surge or Sleep Dart.</strong></p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>McCree:</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>Fan the Hammer DMG up 45 -> 55</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Reinhardt:</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>Bug Fixed preventing <strong>Earthshatter</strong> from going over some terrain.</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Soldier 76:</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Tactical Visor: Helix Rocket no longer auto-targets enemies</strong></p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Torbjorn:</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Molten Core: DMG up 130dps -> 160dps</strong></p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Sound Bugs: Varying sound bugs having to do with Windows volume settings have been fixed.</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>Most notably an issue with scoping sounds on Ana.</p> </li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h3><a href= "https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/1-31-known-issues-list/250344"> <strong>Known Issues List</strong></a> <strong>11.22.18 (edited)</strong></h3> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Ashe: Coach Gun: can launch you into orbit by shooting a Genji Deflect</strong></p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Ashe: B.O.B.</strong> can move Sentry Bastion & cryo-freeze Mei</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Ashe: B.O.B.</strong> LoS is blocked if Mei cryo-freezes on top of him</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Ashe: B.O.B.</strong> no audio call out for nano boosting B.O.B.</p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Winston: Jump Pack: sometimes knockbacks enemies without dealing any DMG</strong></p> </li> </ul> <h3><a href= "https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/ashe-low-fps-scope-animation/243436"> <strong>New Bug Report</strong></a></h3> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Ashe: Scope for Viper: <em>when scoping in or out</em> it massively drops the in-game FPS down</strong></p> </li> </ul> <p>Also the current PTR is getting feedback on the <a href= "https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/overwatch/t/ashes-scoping-animation-is-capped-at-60-fps/245944"> same issues before live in this post</a></p> <h3><strong>Special Thanks to</strong> <a href= "http://www.omniclab.com/sponsors/"><strong>Diamond Sponsors</strong></a> <strong>& New Patrons:</strong></h3> <p>Top Score Solutions, Anthony E.

His Chain Hook had issues with breaking when enemy targets jumped or fell behind environment collision. It will now slow them down in the air more when the hook lands, and wait less time before it starts reeling them in. Since Chain Hook’s cooldown now begins immediately upon use, so it no longer varies based on Roadhog’s distance to the hook target. We’ve also moved some of the projectiles closer to the center of the spread pattern on his Scrap Gun, which gives him a more consistent damage output for its primary and alternate fire. Previously, there was a long-standing bug that caused close-range targets to fly much further than expected. After this bug was fixed, we still wanted to keep some of the knockback burst it provided, so we’ve increased the overall velocity cap to maintain some of that functionality.</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Symmetra - Photon Projector</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Primary fire beam charges up 20% faster</strong></p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Dev Comments</strong>: It’s still difficult to use Symmetra’s Photon Projector beam effectively, even after its range was increased. By speeding up the primary fire charge rate, it takes less time to ramp up to its full damage potential and will be a stronger option when she’s presented with targets to charge up on.</p> </li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h3><strong><em>BUG FIXES</em></strong></h3> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Doomfist</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Fixed a bug that prevented Doomfist’s Rising Uppercut from damaging enemies</strong></p> </li> <li> <p><strong>Fixed a bug that prevented Doomist’s Seismic Slam from dealing damage if he hit by a knockback ability the moment he landed</strong></p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Orisa</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p><strong>Fixed bug that prevented Orisa’s Fortify from canceling Doomfist’s Rising Uppercut air control effects</strong></p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Roadhog</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>Fixed a bug that prevented <strong>Chain Hook</strong> from going on cooldown if it was interrupted before the chain retracted</p> </li> <li> <p>Fixed a bug that prevented <strong>Chain Hook</strong> from destroying breakable objects when pulling the target backward</p> </li> <li> <p>Fixed a bug that caused Roadhog’s <strong>Whole Hog</strong> visual effects to cover a wider area than the spread of projectiles</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Symmetra</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>Fixed a bug that prevented Symmetra to <strong>charge</strong> up her <strong>primary weapon</strong> on enemy ice walls</p> </li> </ul> </li> <li> <p><strong>Zarya</strong></p> <ul data-rte-list="default"> <li> <p>Fixed a bug that allowed heroes to charge through a <strong>Graviton Surge</strong> without getting trapped</p> </li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h2><strong>Special Thanks to</strong> <a href= "http://www.omniclab.com/sponsors/"><strong>Diamond Sponsors</strong></a> <strong>& New Patrons:</strong></h2> <p>Anthony E., Ben K, Britmus, Chrisdaplaya, DurandaL, JanJinkle, Lisome, Mr. Marz, Roger B, Shazear, Solo PS4, Terry F, Top Score Solutions, TragicZac</p> <p><strong>New Patrons this week:</strong> Anthony E. & Erik W.</p> <h2><br /> <strong>Omnic Lab Links:</strong></h2> <p><strong>Omnic Lab is now a Twitch Affiliate!
