Blizzard is working hard to get Overwatch balanced and ready ahead of Baptiste‘s graduation from the PTR onto the public servers. 

Multiple patches and updates have been applied in the past few weeks, mainly focuses on Baptiste, and applying some nerfs and buffs to the likes of Junkrat to keep the game as balanced as possible.

The latest update to the PTR, which hit on March 8, focuses on the Support class, whilst also applying a subtle change to DVa.

Most of the changes come in the way of “bug” fixes rather than actually balancing: with Ashe, for example, her Dynamite blast had a bug where the damage wasn’t increasing and boosting over time. This patch aims to fix that (so you could probably count this as a buff of sorts).

A Brigitte bug where her Barrier Shield would not regenerate after being destroyed has always been addressed.

As for DVa, a bug where her mech would destroy itself sooner than intended has been addressed.
