Overwatch PTR Update Planned for Reducing Match Draws
CTF and Elimination draws also being looked at.
Sick of draws in Competitive Play for Overwatch? Blizzard will have a solution hitting the Public Test Region server soon according to game director Jeff Kaplan.
Responding to a thread in the official forums about how draws in Competitive games often feel like a waste of time (despite the XP gain), Kaplan noted that, “We have changes coming to the PTR very soon. These changes will greatly diminish the number of draws. More details inc. extremely soon.”
If you’re concerned about draws in Capture the Flag and Elimination, you may need to wait longer. “We’re also working on reducing Capture the Flag draws and elimination draws but those changes are further out,” said Kaplan in another reply.
Overwatch will be receiving a new hero on March 21st with Orisa, the robot tank, on PS4, Xbox One and PS4. Could the long-awaited Bastion nerf finally be coming to consoles? Stay tuned to find out.
