Michael Chu interview
From a stream at Blizzard HQ, LA Gladiators Surefour talking with some devs on stream indicate they are working on pushing some changes to the PTR for the following heroes:
DOOMFIST - Video timestamp
Reverted the internal change to Rocket Punch distance (when canceled with a jump). They tried reducing the extra distance by 40%, but it felt bad during internal testing.
Seismic Slam range reduced from 20 to 15 meters (max damage from 85 to 65).
Enemies affected by Rising Uppercut only lose air control of their character for 0.6 seconds (essentially just during the ‘knocked up’ portion)
BASTION - Video timestamp
Bastion’s Recon clip size increased from 25 to 35.
Bastion’s Sentry minigun gets a ‘reverse-spread’ effect: the longer he shoots, the more precise his shots become. This was specifically described as a change that “may or may not make it.”
MCCREE - Video timestamp
Fan the Hammer damage increased by 10 damage per shot.
