Overwatch Beta Patch: Character Profile Wipe on March/8/2016

Community Manager Lylirra announced this new patch (build 27704) comes with a full character profile wipe. Once you login you will keep your current level, past rewards (such as avatars, sprays, Victory Pose, Highlight Intro, Currency).

You will lose all stats found in the character profile. This is my character profile as a sample:

We’re in the process of preparing the next beta patch for release and wanted to provide all Closed Beta testers with a heads-up that a full wipe of players’ Career Profiles will be included. As a result, the Career Profile page will appear empty when you first log in after patching, and your previous “Personal Best” records will be reset.

Note: This wipe will not affect matchmaking, player levels, progression, or rewards.

We don’t have an ETA for when the next beta patch will be ready for download, but we’re looking to deploy it to all regions as soon as possible. As always, patch notes will be posted in the Beta News forum shortly after the patch is live.

Thanks for your continued feedback and testing! — source: Official Forum
