Before the threshhold before dmg was halved was 10 (because of the -5) So the calculations reduce dmg done to Armor targets by half, until the dmg exceeds 6.

World Cup Predictions UK vs USA AUS vs SKR Winners faceoff (loser to 3rd place) CN vs FIN CAN vs FR Winners faceoff (loser to 3rd place) Discussion Points: PTR 10/23/18 HERO UPDATES General - All Made jump height consistent across hero roster Mercy - Valkyrie Ultimate cost reduced 15% Healing per second increased from 50 to 60 Dev Comments: Mercy’s ultimate was charging a bit too slowly after her base healing was reduced in a previous update. These changes should restore some of her ultimate’s strength and let it build up more quickly. Reaper Hellfire Shotguns - Spread randomization reduced by 50% NOTE: This is currently a nerf, and Jeff said they’re updating PTR with an adjustment The Reaping (Passive) - Life steal increased from 20% to 30% of damage dealt Dev Comments: Reaper’s specialty is fighting at a very close range. The more consistent spread pattern and increase in healing from his passive ability will make him more capable of standing toe-to-toe with his enemies. Roadhog Chain Hook Decreased the delay before pulling a hooked target from 0.5 seconds to 0.3 seconds Now greatly reduces the target’s momentum upon being hooked Cooldown now begins immediately, instead of after the target has been pulled Scrap Gun Spread pattern adjusted for both primary and secondary fire Spread randomization reduced by 50% Whole Hog Knockback maximum velocity increased by 25% (from 8 to 10 meters per second) Horizontal recoil decreased slightly Dev Comments: Roadhog is receiving several large changes to make his abilities more consistent. 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. Symmetra - Photon Projector Primary fire beam charges up 20% faster Dev Comments: 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. BUG FIXES Doomfist Fixed a bug that prevented Doomfist’s Rising Uppercut from damaging enemies Fixed a bug that prevented Doomist’s Seismic Slam from dealing damage if he hit by a knockback ability the moment he landed Orisa Fixed bug that prevented Orisa’s Fortify from canceling Doomfist’s Rising Uppercut air control effects Roadhog Fixed a bug that prevented Chain Hook from going on cooldown if it was interrupted before the chain retracted Fixed a bug that prevented Chain Hook from destroying breakable objects when pulling the target backward Fixed a bug that caused Roadhog’s Whole Hog visual effects to cover a wider area than the spread of projectiles Symmetra Fixed a bug that prevented Symmetra to charge up her primary weapon on enemy ice walls Zarya Fixed a bug that allowed heroes to charge through a Graviton Surge without getting trapped Special Thanks to Diamond Sponsors & New Patrons: Anthony E., Ben K, Britmus, Chrisdaplaya, DurandaL, JanJinkle, Lisome, Mr. Marz, Roger B, Shazear, Solo PS4, Terry F, Top Score Solutions, TragicZac New Patrons this week: Anthony E. & Erik W.

Despite deploying new technologies including powered armour and super-soldier programs, no nation alone could stand against the growing omnic army.” The UN formed OW For 20yrs OW served as a global peacekeeping force & overall world & space betterment Controversy struck their missions & forced disgraceful retirements through failed missions and allegations plus the uncovering of Blackwatch’s covert operations surfaced The UN investigated and the OW Swiss headquarters was destroyed and Jack & Gabriel were reported dead during the investigations. The UN still decided to shut down OW & BW even with the destruction ruled as an “accident” The Petras Act declared all OW activity illegal & could be prosecuted Since then: Vishkar Corp. destroyed Calado Tower to control Rio de Janeiro Side note: Lucio’s Father worked on design & creator for sonic tech for Vishkar Lucio also is a known enemy & freedom fighter to force them out of Rio de Janeiro Satya Vaswani (Symmetra) was a high rank hard-light architect & trade agent for Vishkar Symmetra was the key in destroying Caldo Tower with Sanjay Korpal (Vishkar agent & Talon leader) who helped assist after they couldn’t negotiate a contract with the Mayor of Rio de Janeiro. Hyde Global hired 2 international criminals Junkrat & Roadhog to swindle insurance Heroes Introduced since launch: Talon: Sombra (Origin Story) Animated Short Doomfist (Origin Story) “Conflict & War is the Crucible by which we evolve.” Doomfist Smashed the airport in Numbani & OR-15 models Moira (Origin Story) Blackwatch Associations: Genji McCree Moira Overwatch & Misc: Ana - Fareeha’s (Pharah’s) Mother Lore Origin Story OW Sniper with original Overwatch Faked her death just like Jack Morrison (76) & Gabriel (Reaper) Brigitte - Torbjorn’s Daughter, Reinhardt is the Godfather Lore Origin Story Orisa (Origin Story) OR-15 modified by Effie Odele to an OR15A Wrecking Ball (Origin Story) Connected to Horizon Lunar Colony & Dr. Winston Name: Hammond -- Connections with winning a Junkertown Arena Animated Shorts: “The Last Bastion” - Bastion The only animated short with zero dialogue Shows that Bastion was abandoned in a forest in Sweden after the Omnic Crisis Ganymede somehow activated Bastion (the bird) The Omnic has PTSD from the battles in the crisis Finds some abandoned B73 models destroyed in a field & uses his repair tech to get a memory note on what happened Remembers what it’s supposed to attack in the city, but takes the bird to help understand it is in the past Apparently, Bastion met Torbjorn after this and took him under it wing & upgraded it “Infiltration” - Sombra with Widowmaker & Reaper (Guest Zarya) Talon assassination mission in Volskaya Industries (RUS) Chairman Katya Volskaya? (defender against the omnics) Sombra Blackmails her with knowledge of the Chairman using tech from Omnic technicians. (Chairman also shows her daughter) Mechs being built use Particle Beams that Zarya utilizes & Shield Arms like her barriers Zarya arrives at the end “Junkertown: The Plan” - Junkrat & Roadhog (Teaser for The Queen?) Mostly Map & World building, Character fun “Rise and Shine” - Mei & Snowball Mei & companions in Antarctica ran low on resources. Cryo-froze themselves to power down the base. Only Mei woke up from Cryo-sleep Atmospheric predictions were far worse than expected. Comms lost & they slept through the OW/Blackwatch controversy Asleep for 9 years resulting in the companions’ tanks to malfunction. On the plus side, the 9 years the base while they slept. Companions died to the Cryonics “Malfunctioning” Opara (Cryonics) - from Numbani, Africa Arrhenius (Climatologist) - from Sweden Torres (Cryonics) - from Spain Macready (Engineering) - from USA Adams (Researcher) from USA Mei sets out with the data and some snow gear to get back to Overwatch from Antarctica “Honor and Glory” - Reinhardt & Brigitte (OR-14 Orisa Model & Bastion models) Rein & Brigitte talking to avoid going back to OW Reinhardt’s young crusader days “Live with Honor, Die with Glory” Shows his arrogance and aggression while not protecting his men An OR-14 Unit gets deployed and cuts Reinhardt’s Eye open with a blade. Reinhardt’s senior officer gets a mortal wound from the same unit to rescue him Fun fact: One of the crusaders helping while Reinhardt is on his rampage is a female crusader! This means that there could be more of his unit that were female or even omnics! Reinhardt’s superior rests in Eichenwalde (or at least the armor does) Speculations? Omnics vs humans, thoughts? Lots of story retrospection, but how will they move forward? Talon, how do they come into play? Will Sanjay Korpal, Talon leadership show up? He’s also Vishkar’s CEO This guy was in the Symmetra comic (A Better World) & Masquerade Comic as well as the Moira Origin Story & sat with Moira & Maximillien when Doomfist returned. More Overwatch heroes? “Sound Quake” from the original trailer has STILL gone unmade “has chest missiles” according to punch kid Special Thanks to Diamond Sponsors & New Patrons: Ben K, Britmus, Chrisdaplaya, DurandaL, JanJinkle, Lisome, Mr. Marz, Roger B, Shazear, Solo PS4, Terry F, Top Score Solutions, TragicZac Omnic Lab Links: Omnic Lab is now a Twitch Affiliate!

Twitter Main Feed Aidmaro’s Twitter Sombra & Bastion “Toast” Victory Poses not in Lootboxes PTR Patch changing movement & Acceleration Silver to Diamond Progress: Basics: The core of Overwatch - Moba at heart disguised as FPS Much faster pace than MOBA Constant team fight I usually play in like 3-ish hour sittings, sometimes multiple times a day Putting in the hours Good practice is important. Don't form bad habits Watch streams, ask for help, get coaching Advanced Roles: Hero Switching Hero tracking, skill tracking and looking for openings. Learning your matchups. Self-Imposed Rules: My biggest self-imposed rule is if we’ve already lost a fight, just don’t ult Flexibility: Allowing yourself to know multiple heroes/roles Personal examples Mentality: If you lose a game, you should always look back on the game as if the loss was your fault -  as if there is always something you could improve Don’t be afraid to admit others can be better than you, embrace it and learn from them. Dealing with Teammates: Accept that is a team game and you need your teammates.
