80 - Omnic Lab - Perspectives from an outsider & a parent with Susan Lyon (Jakes Mom!)
In the Lab this week Andres got a really REALLY different style interview with Susan Lyon, mother of Jake from the Houston Outlaws. We ask her about her thoughts on the video game industry as a parent, how to support her son in esports for a career, and the developing industry around the Overwatch League.

Game Night -- RECAP
Omnic Meta: (Homepage)
Fixed on PTR:
Wall Slamming with a 45 degree impact as the cut-off point for registry vs sliding off.
Rocket Punch will break things on the make that can be broken consistently
Seismic Slam no longer cancels when you land too close to a wall.
Seismic Slam now "slides" a short distance up ramps instead of triggering immediately and Winston leap also adjusted in the same way.
Things not fixed yet
Seismic Slam bugged when you/your target is near a corner, it will sometimes not find them as a valid target. Little longer to get a fix in place.
Ghost Punches: going through enemies instead of impacting. Partially latency related, but there working on it.
Corner bounce: when you Punch near a corner/edge it will force you to "bounce off" and slide away a good distance. Working on it.
Things under investigation:
Rocket punch vs. Rocket Punch (or Charge): inconsistent interactions between hit registration on this. Both players are ideally supposed to fall down as a result.
Aerial Seismic Slam sometimes causing grounded SS: Reports of people being in the air and triggering the grounded version.
