Several maps removed from Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch rotation.
A new patch is live for Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch and it fixes a number of different bugs while also fixing one rather odd bug.
Earlier in the week, Blizzard revealed that a bug had prevented the Ultimate voice lines for Genji and Mercy from playing properly when the Oni or Winged Victory skins were equipped, respectively. During a match, this can be rather hazardous since you have no clue where an Ultimate will come from and thus be at a disadvantage. The bug has since been fixed and the voice lines should play properly now.
The patch also makes changes to Mercy’s Resurrect ability and how it works for her on-fire meter, especially since it’s now a normal ability and not an Ultimate. Will it fix the tremendous SR gains that players are getting from Mercy? Time will tell. For Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, maps like Hanamura, Horizon Lunar Colony, Temple of Anubis and Volskaya Industries have been removed from the rotation though they’re still available in Custom Games.
Check out the full patch notes below and let us know what you think of the changes.
The credit that Mercy’s Resurrect contributes toward her on-fire meter has been adjusted to account for the recent changes in its functionality.
Hanamura, Horizon Lunar Colony, Temple of Anubis, or Volskaya Industries have been removed from the Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch map rotation, but can still be selected in Custom Games.
