Oh I have no problem with this. Get out of my competitive matches if you have a sketchy connection; go play QP and stop wasting everyone else's time, energy, and money.

I love how stern Blizzard is with Overwatch. It's one of the reasons why I will continue to play this for the foreseeable future.

Agreed, they really need a way to crack down on the scripting though. There was a no-recoil script for quiet a while for Soldier76 that I watched get abused.

The soldier 76 thing wasn't a "script" that was abused, you just had to pulse your trigger every 4 shots. It just needed a simple macro that any gaming mouse can do these days... it was pretty easy to do without a macro too. Blizzard fixed that the proper way, by making the recoil have a cooldown so pulsing the trigger didn't help.

So I've got an odd video artifact in Overwatch, one that I'm not entirely sure how to address. The symptom is a flickering of certain textures and lighting, most notably on hair/feathers on character models but also on light sources on maps. It first showed up as a very rapid flickering, but since the recent update to Windows 10 it has turned into more of a screen tearing effect, but only on the portions of the model that are hair or feathers or anything covered by a specific light source. The light sources are the oddest part, it's not reproducible for a specific source. I can play a map and see it on one light, then play the same map again and that light will be fine but have it show up on a different light.

I believe it's related to SLI, but I'm not sure if there's a SLI setting I can use to get rid of it while still taking advantage of SLI for higher framerates. I don't think it's an actual hardware error, as this is the only game that has anything remotely like this effect and it is very specific to certain objects in Overwatch.

Anyone have any ideas?

Ahh thanks for this clarification, I was misinformed. Definitely makes sense. +

PTR
Changes to Widowmaker: Increased scope speed. May explore future changes if it isn't enough to make her viable.
Genji can no longer dash through Junkrat's trap.
Speeding up activation time of Junkrat's ultimate.
Full patch notes available on their page (have been for a while)

Symmetra
The types of changes they want to make will take a while, since it won't be just changing a few numbers. Could be a change in numbers and cooldowns, or possibly her playstyle/kit.
They are not looking to explore her possibly becoming a healer, despite being a support class.
Going to try to make her viable outside of "on defense on the first point."
Changes coming as early as mid-November, possibly later.

Spectator mode
Possible bookmarking certain cameras in certain locations and on certain players that can be switched between using hotkeys.
Adding a camera that is always focused on the objective.
Made camera more steady/fluid.
You can focus on certain heroes using hotkeys while still staying on a different camera. So, let's say you're on a camera that's focused on the point. Tracer is in slot 2, you hit Shift+2, the camera on the point will focus on that Tracer using that camera. If you switch cameras, it will still be focused on that Tracer.

New heroes
Actively working on new heroes, one hero is very far along. "Will see the light of day sooner rather than later."
Another hero prototype that looks very promising. Placeholder models and effects currently. Will probably come out sometime next year.

New maps
One map is very far along on a pre-existing mode. They're already adding art for that map. It's "very cool" in terms of appearance and the story behind it.
Another map in prototype stage which is going to take a bit longer. No further information other than it uses a pre-existing game mode.
A number of maps that are prototypes of new game modes. Currently developer-only and super experimental. Hard to balance because they're trying to make maps and game modes that has good balance for all heroes.
Actively exploring new game modes.

Misc
Also working on many small QOL changes, no details.
Looking into making the eSports scene a better experience. No real details on that either.
A lot of passion, time, and effort is being put into this game. They want to make sure everything works right before releasing it. Yay Blizzard!
No mention of a Halloween update, though possibly hinted at with "upcoming voice line and emote changes/additions" Some mention of "unlocking more and making them available all at once" which could mean we can have multiple emotes/voice lines per hero, or that they won't be loot box exclusive. Remains to be seen.

The vocal community as is toxic as radioactive waste, some really try-hards in competitive mode make it hard to like at times, but generally people are ok.

As for people here to play with here check the stickied list on the OP. Don't think it's fully up to date but Ill see if I can't make a newer one this weekend.
