Mash Those Buttons is pleased to present Watchpoint Radio: our official podcast dedicated to Overwatch and its community. Luckily for us, Beta came back just in time, and with a bunch of changes.
In this episode talk about the new progression system – how it works, what kind of rewards, and how deeply you can customize your character. Blizzard has revealed how they plan to monetize the game (after the initial $40-$60 of course), so we discuss how we think that will impact the game as well as try to predict the exchange rate for RL money to OW currency. We go through the LONG list of character balance updates, as well as a few general changes as well. Most character balances feel right, while some don’t sit too well with Jarret and Jason. Additionally, Blizzard has made some changes to the UI, added in some config options players have been asking for, and added a brand new career menu so you can bask in your own glory. All this and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio!
