Overwatch PTR v1.5.0.0.32559 (Oct 22)

Blizzard Entertainment deployed Overwatch PTR build v1.5.0.0.32559 with a mere 75MB file size. If you are wondering what that patch added, Bill Warnecke posted a brief comment in the PTR Forums:

Bill: Hey folks, the changes Geoff outlined here are now live on the PTR in build 1.5.0.0.32554.

Thanks!

The link provided by Bill shows the previous PTR Patch forum thread by Geoff Goodman, but Geoff updated the page adding the following:

We’re planning on kicking off another build for the weekend! Hopefully it will be some time tonight, but I’m going to post the notes now so you guys know right away whats going on. Thanks for testing and giving feedback.
