Overwatch – Patchnotes 1.3.0.212 min read

Reading Time: 8 minutes

Normalerweise wird in meiner Battle.net-Freundesliste eher Overwatch gespielt. Seit dem 30. September sehe ich jedoch nur noch World of Warcraft-Spieler. Ob sich das ab heute wieder ändert?

Seit gestern Nacht ist der Patch 1.3.0.2 für PC und Xbox One live, welcher unter anderem Season 2 des Ranked Modus und die neue Map Eichenwalde enthält. Ingesamt gibt es jedoch auch viele weitere Änderungen, wie uns die folgenden Patchnotes verraten:

Highlights

Competitive Play Season 2

We’ve made some big changes to Competitive Play in Season 2. The most noticeable change is the introduction of skill tiers, which we hope will better communicate players‘ relative skill levels. Competitive Play will put a greater emphasis on skill tiers over specific ratings, and as such, a player’s tier will be more prominently displayed throughout the game. We’ve also switched the skill rating system to a 1-5000 scale to give players more detailed information about how each match affects their specific rating.

Sudden Death is also going away in Season 2. Instead, matches that are tied when the clock runs out end in a draw—though, it should be a rare occurrence. Because of this, we’ve made some changes to our game modes in Competitive Play to help reduce the chance that a draw can happen.

We’ve also made a few minor adjustments to leaver penalties, the top 500 system, and the competitive point system. Read on below to learn more!

New Assault/Escort Map: Eichenwalde

The forest has slowly begun overtaking the abandoned village of Eichenwalde, but the scars will never completely fade. During the Omnic Crisis, Eichenwalde was the site of a key battle. General Balderich von Adler took a handful of crusaders to the village in an effort to outflank the omnic army. Balderich’s soldiers were able to break down the enemy forces, giving the German military an opportunity to push back, but the Crusaders didn’t make it out of the battle. General Balderich finally collapsed in the castle’s great hall.
