Overwatch PTR 1.50

Blizzard Entertainment deployed Overwatch PTR 1.50 (build 70299) introducing new Career Profile improvements.

Achievements are now grouped by category and may be filtered to find things easily.

Junkrat has been buffed a bit by reducing the delay when you trigger a concussion mine — meaning he can explode them faster, and you can control Junk faster after detonating the RIP-Tire. The patch also adds several bug fixes across the board.

GENERAL UPDATES

Feature Update: Career Profile Improvements

The Career Profile page has been redesigned to provide a better, more streamlined experience when viewing player profiles. Aside from the brand new look, we’ve also added some new quality-of-life features:

  • Game mode play time has been added to the overview section, so you can see exactly how much time you’ve spent in modes like Competitive Play or any of the community’s creative Workshop modes
  • Statistics are displayed in a tabular format, separated by “Average/10 min”, “Best”, “Total”, providing a cleaner, more readable view
  • Your in-game achievements are grouped by category, and can be filtered by what you’ve earned and have yet to unlock
  • Your Player Icons are now grouped by category and can be filtered by hero and whether you own them

General

  • Capture the Flag in-game achievements have been moved to the Maps category
  • Added additional playback languages for Echo’s Duplicate ability video
