Armor Nerf and Huge Reaper Buff
For those that haven't heard yet, the patch notes for the current version in PTR adds some meta defining changes. As the title suggests, armor is going to receive a nerf with damage reduction decreasing from 5 to 3. My guess is this is to further move the meta away from GOATS comp. All tanks are going to be reeling from this change while everyone else will receive an indirect buff in damage output. Also in regards to buffs, Reaper mains rejoice as he is now better than ever before. Life steal has increased from 30% to 50% of damage dealt, this is insane and combined with the armor nerf Reaper is almost a must pick. I wish Soldier got more attention to his balance, but maybe that will have to wait since he recently made headlines for his surprise backstory.
Check out more information regarding the PTR patch notes here. It's not 100% the changes will make it to live servers, but the past indicates this is what we will deal with for at least 2 weeks.

Overwatch confirms second gay character in the overwatch universe
Recently, Overwatch releases a short story named “Bastet” which gave us all some lore about S76, Reaper, and Ana. Read it here:
From this story, we learn that Jack (Soldier 76) was in a relationship with a man named Vincent. So that confirms that Jack is gay, making him the second gay character in their universe (him and tracer). What are your guys thoughts on this?

Overwatch will go FTP?
*Sorry, this is a duplicated article of the Cod Lounge.
Michael Patcher made an interesting prediction in 2019 through GamesIndustry.Biz. According to Michael, at the end of 2019, Activision-Blizzard plans to convert Overwatch and Black Ops 4 (blackout only) into F2P (free-to-play, part-paying games). Attach articles related to Activision below.
Activision will make Overwatch and Blackout free-to-play. I think that the 18 Overwatch League owners have been assured by Blizzard that it will expand the audience for Overwatch. The most expedient way to do this is to make the core game free-to-play in order to attract tens of millions of new users, who ostensibly will convert to OWL viewers. I expect this by mid-June (the third anniversary of the launch of the original game. Disgruntled players who bought the core game will likely be compensated by being given free stuff (skins or other cosmetic items). Blackout will go FTP at least a month prior to the launch of next year's Call of Duty, in order to promote the new game.

Doomfist, The main culprit in the destruction of balance, got nerfed.
Blizzard applied the "Overwatch" 1.3 patch on December 12. The most eye-catching thing in this patch is 'Doomfist' Nerf. Meanwhile, 'Doomfist' has been pointed out that it is strong enough to break the balance to the professional gamer beyond general gamer. This' Doomfist 'has been downgraded through this patch, stimulating gamers' expectations.
The main contents are as follows. 'Rising Uppercut', which first launches the enemy in the air, has lost control of heroes in the air from 3 seconds to 0.6 seconds. In the case of 'Rising Uppercut', it was pointed out that it was not possible to move the body in the air too long from the point of attack. So, even if you hit 'Rising Uppercut', you can control your movement faster than before.
Seismic Slam, also known as a rush, has also been reduced from a maximum range of 20 meters to 15 meters, and it does not lose its right to technology. The range is also shortened, allowing attacked objects to respond.
Finally, the 'Meteor Strike', which inflicts damage on enemies within a certain range, has reduced the outer ring maximum damage from 300 to 200 instead of increasing the inner ring range from 1.5 to 2 meters. It seems to be a measure to highlight the 'Doomfist' feature that hits the enemy as close as possible.
'Doomfist' Balance Adjustment Blizzard commented in developer comments that 'Seismic Slams have reduced the range of attacking in the air, so they can now attack closer to the enemy,' said Rising Uppercut, Doomfist 'is the basis for continuous attacks. I think I have found a good compromise by looking at the various methods of adjustment and limiting the amount of time I can prepare for the next action. "

POPULAR Ashe's Competitive Debut
The gates have opened for Ashe in competitive as she can now mix up the meta. It's going to be very interesting to see how comps shift with her introduction. I love her play style, but this does pose uncertainty for other heroes in similar roles. Namely McCree is on the chopping block which could warrant a nice rework or rebalancing of his power. Soldier 76, although frequently on the bench, is likely to see less playtime. Unless nerfs make their way to Ashe, this should be how things end up fairing for the remainder of the season.
Any thoughts on how the meta will be shifting and if any other heroes might be impacted negatively from Ashe's arrival?
