Hello people here Bastion with the weekly news and this is very special for Ana players on both Xbox and ps4 because as we know console and pc are too different in terms of sensitivity and mode of use of some character and although there may be minimal differences when playing in Ana there has been a difference of up to 7% between console and pc and that is why this change announced just yesterday by one of the main developers of the game.
In if this small buff will give an additional option that would be assisted marksmanship to allies which would allow Ana to be more effective when using the sniper mode and function as a healer at the same time. Ana’s update is expected to arrive at the same time as Winter’s Paradise or in one of the updates close to it.
The 2018 Summer Games have arrived in Overwatch and with them many changes that will impact the metagame. Some characters were weakened, while others benefited. So let’s take a look at all the changes in patch 18.104.22.168.
Overwatch 2 developers want more ‘Mercy-style’ support heroes with less focus on targeting.
Overwatch 2 developers got candid about the types of heroes they want in the long-awaited sequel and teased the release of more Mercy-style supports.
Overwatch’s wild cast of heroes has an incredibly diverse skill set to suit a variety of play styles.
With so much to choose from, it’s surprising that there are only a handful of characters that don’t need precision to make an impact, with Mercy being one of the best examples.
Ultimately, Mercy-style heroes are exactly what Overwatch 2’s developers talked about adding later on, especially with more characters planned after launch.
Overwatch 2 will add more Mercy-like mounts
In a recent interview, lead hero designer Geoff Goodman talked about new heroes that might not be as focused on as Ana or Baptiste and the team’s design philosophy.
“We want to make sure there are more ways to express your abilities than just aiming. Mercy was a very early example,” he said, explaining how he personally disagreed with those who think she is an under-skilled heroine. “There are so many skills it takes to position yourself well and decide when to Rez. “
According to Goodman, that kind of hero is something the team wants to keep adding and plans to do.
“Lately, especially on the support side, we’ve been talking about adding more of the less objective-focused Mercy style. Some of our most popular supports, like Zenyatta and Ana, are very objective-oriented, but we started thinking that maybe we needed a more pure Mercy style,” he continued.
Goodman further stated that these heroes would be more focused on their own team, but could make big plays “off-target”. It’s definitely something we talk about a lot and plan to do more of in the future,” said the hero designer.
Overwatch has a few more props currently in the works, including a fox-like hero being teased. We’ll have to see if they end up looking more like Mercy when they’re finally revealed in future seasons of OW2.
