    Genji hasn't been in the meta for like 2 years

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    And yet's he's maintained a constant middle of the pack pick and win rate, despite mutliple anti-dive heroes being added. He was at best about 10th in line for a buff, and he in no way needed 4 or 5 all around the same time.

    I randomly played in a game with TreeBoyDave yesterday. Nothing special happened but it was kinda neat.

    I think that was because folks played Genji in spite of his badness cause he's fun.

    But yeah he kind of has stunk at higher ranks for a while now.

    Patch notes!
    COMPETITIVE UPDATES

    Open Queue Added to Competitive Play

    Starting with Season 23, Competitive Play will support both Role Queue and Open Queue. These will be separate queues, so you won’t see Role Queue teams playing against Open Queue teams. Open Queue will have its own SR and leaderboard, separate from the role-specific Role Queue SRs and leaderboards.

    Adjustments to Seasonal Placements for High SR Players

    Beginning with Season 23, the maximum Skill Rating (SR) earned after a player completes each season’s placements has been capped at 3900 SR. Players are still matched with other players of similar skill, as we want to keep matches as fair and fun as possible. As each player participates in more games during the current season, their SR will slowly rise to reach a value that fully reflects their current skill.

    This change is intended to address many of the issues that SR Decay tried to fix, but in a more positive manner that rewards staying active and playing more games instead of penalizing players for not playing enough. Achieving a very high SR at the end of a season can no longer be achieved by completing a mere five placement matches. This does mean you may see larger SR differences between all the players in a very high SR match than in previous seasons, as two similar and highly skilled players might have different SRs based on how many games they’ve played during the season.

    HERO UPDATES

    Ashe

    Dynamite

    Cooldown increased from 10 to 12 seconds

    Developer Comment: With recent improvements to Ashe’s weapon her overall damage output has increased significantly. Toning Dynamite down will lower her overall damage while keeping her damage output focused on her rifle.

    Brigitte

    Repair Pack

    No longer grants an additional armor health pool

    Barrier Shield

    Maximum health increased from 200 to 250
    Regeneration rate decreased from 100 to 85 health per second
    Cooldown when destroyed increased from 3 to 5 seconds

    Developer Comment: Granting additional maximum health is a powerful ability and has proven too effective when combined with the additional healing of Repair Pack. Brigitte’s barrier will now provide more protection up front, enabling her to withstand more directed fire, but will also have a longer downtime if it is destroyed.

    D.Va

    Fusion Cannons

    Movement penalty reduced from 50 to 40%

    Defense Matrix

    Cooldown reduced from 1.5 to 1 second

    Micro Missiles

    Activation delay reduced from 0.5 to 0.25 seconds

    Developer Comment: These buffs are aimed at making D.Va feel more fluid and responsive to play.

    Junkrat

    Concussion Mine

    Trigger delay reduced from 0.156 to 0.1 seconds

    RIP-Tire

    Time to take control of Junkrat post detonation has been reduced from 1.5 to 0.9 seconds

    Developer Comment: These are a couple quality of life changes for Junkrat. This makes it possible to do some Concussion Mine jumps that were no longer possible after a previous increase to its projectile speed.

    BUG FIXES

    General

    Fixed a bug with patch notes truncation for the Taiwanese locale
    Fixed a bug with specific hero ultimate voicelines playing both their friendly and enemy team variations

    Heroes

    Ashe

    Fixed a bug with an Incorrect shadow displayed across the hood of the Little Red skin

    Lucio

    Fixed a bug with Lucio being able to switch to Heal Song while stunned

    Reinhardt

    Fixed a bug with fire strike appearing invisible for allies

    Roadhog

    Fixed a bug that allowed Roadhog to hook Baptiste’s Immortality Field

    Wrecking Ball

    Fixed a bug where Wrecking Ball could hit an enemy much faster than intended with Roll Damage

    Experimental changes are in. Open queue is now permanently available alongside Role queue.

    The biggest change is that placements now cap at 3900. So top level players get to watch that SR rise instead of hitting 4600 right away and fighting back and forth for top 50ish all season. Still matched by MMR so they aren't just lumped in with high master players.

    Did anyone else forget there was OWL today?

    Catching up on the live stream:
    Houston and Toronto pull off upsets? I'd be thrilled if not for the fact that Shock is just gonna massacre Toronto. Maybe Houston can go on a run against Vancouver/Atlanta?

    Edit:
    On second thought, maybe Shock picks Houston to snuff them out. They seem like they could go on a run with than Toronto and Shock likes to snuff those teams out early. I assume that everyone is going to leave Paris for Philly to deal with.

    APAC summer showdown
    this uhhh sure is a one-sided map. i know there used to be a joke about the Chengdu zone but nowadays they just look bad...

    i also dislike comcast's g4m3r internet commercial because good lord does it enforce a common toxic mindset in the name of "competition"

    I can't tell if Eqo's blades are just bad or if they're doing it to force Lamp and let Fury Flux for free

    Eqo in the neutral is just dominating though

    Molten variables hiss and roar. On my mind-forge, I hammer them into the greatsword Epistemology. Many are my foes this night.

    blading to get out lamp would be a really bad use of ult. in almost every case, fluxing first to get out lamp and then blading would be the better play (or do what Washington did to Shock and use flux and blade at the same time, then dash up into them so that the other team is too far up to get lamp's effects)

    I'm on team reinforce. Raisins are great, Soe's list is whack.
    It has mangos at 9, and olives on there at all.

    SirToasty's Fruit Power Rankings

    1. Bananas - easy to eat, subtly sweet, overripe can be converted to bread form
    2. Grapes - easy to eat, refreshing, many flavor varieties, can be converted to booze form
    3. Strawberries - tasty, pretty neat looking, seeds on the outside!
    4. Honeydew - probably the tastiest fruit on the list but they don't ripen on their own after being picked so they're hard to get just right
    5. Cantaloupe - more forgiving than honeydew, not quite as tasty, a bit time consuming to prepare
    6. Apples - classic, many varieties for different sweetness/tartness preferences
    7. Oranges - delicious in liquid or solid form, potentially messy if not careful peeling
    8. Lemons - secret weapon in many sweet and savory dishes, not for eating on it's own
    9. Lime - same as lemons but a bit more limited
    10. Mango - unique flavor, not convenient to prep
