Tired of Mercy POTGs? Well, say farewell to those with this new patch

Blizzard released a new update for Overwatch tweaking the frequency of Mercy getting Play of the Game moments as well as adding a few bug fixes and changes. Here's a full list of changes:

GENERAL UPDATES

General

  • Players should now see fewer Plays of the Game featuring Mercy’s Resurrection ability
  • Increased payload speed on Eichenwalde

USER INTERFACE UPDATES

General

  • A new Competitive Tier legend has been added to the Competitive Play info screen
  • A new Match Complete splash screen has replaced the former Round Complete splash screen in competitive matches

BUG FIXES

General

  • Fixed a bug which prevented the Triple Kill announcement from being played after a kill streak of 3 or more
  • Fixed several issues causing some players obtain a skill rating that's higher than their actual rating
    • Note: A very small number of people were affected by these issues, but those who were affected will have their skill rating adjusted appropriately

Heroes

  • Fixed a bug causing the wrong arrow to be shown on Hanzo's bow, or disappear entirely (the correct arrow would still be fired)
  • Fixed a bug preventing Junkrat’s RIP-Tire from receiving credit for kills, achievements, and other stats

Maps

  • Fixed a bug allowing Reaper to Shadow Step to unintended locations on Hollywood
