Overwatch’s Roadhog is getting a nerf

Here some fresh info directly from the Blizzard’s team working on the upcoming updates.

Geoff Goodman, Principal Designer of Overwatch, shared some inside info about the upcoming changes for Roadhog. It’s highly probable that players using PTR (Public Test Region – alternate servers for beta testing) will receive that update during this week.

The first major change applies to Roadhog’s hook. Now the enemy will move into the position directly in front of this Hero, not in line of the attack which was exploited to throw players of the map etc.

The second change is about line-of-sight and the difference between the hook’s position and Roadhog’s position. The former is preferred with additional changes to situations when the hook breaks off. You can read the original post on Battle.net and we’ll surely inform you when there’s full info about the upcoming updates.
