    Yesterday Blizzard’s posted that there would be significant hero changes coming to the Overwatch PTR and there’s now more detail on what these actually are.

    Blizard stressed that this PTR would be different with on-going experimentation and balance changes which were reiterated  today by their community team.

    “We don’t typically have the time to try multiple configurations to our hero balance composition, but the extended length of this PTR gives us a unique opportunity. Throughout the PTR, we’ll be continuously adjusting our heroes’ stats, which will provide valuable data needed to make some tough decisions.”

    The changes that re going live include:
