Overwatch PTR Update Further Balances Roadhog, Sombra, Ana
The balancing continues…
Contrary to popular belief, Blizzard Entertainment will not be immediately pushing out its next patch for Overwatch. The latest version of the patch on its Public Test Realm, which is currently available only for PC players to try out.
According to patch notes, Roadhog’s hook should now have an easier time capturing partially exposed targets. Hooked enemies will also be slowed down to prevent them from accidentally moving behind an object and breaking away suddenly. You can also no longer pull hooked enemies behind you.
As for Ana, Biotic Grenade’s duration has been reduced from 5 to 4 seconds. This presumably applies to both the healing and anti-healing effect. Meanwhile, Sombra’s Hack cooldown has been reduced from 12 to 8 seconds.
There’s no word yet on D.Va, whose HP changes have made it easier to kill her, but this is still the testing phase. What are your thoughts on the latest PTR balance changes? Let us know in the comments.
