Overwatch’s endorsement system seems to have lost some of the appeal it had when it was first added to the game earlier in 2018, and now Philadelphia Fusion streamer Jeff ‘emongg’ Anderson explained that the inconsistency of the system is what makes it seem almost pointless.
Endorsements are a way for Overwatch players to acknowledge other players after a match in a positive way, and players can get up to level endorsement level five.
The streamer explained that in his experience, every time he got up to level four endorsement, he would quickly drop back down to level three, going back and forth between the two all the time.
“Here’s how I feel about endorsements: Hey I’m level four, yay I got level four endorsement level,” emongg imitated for fans. “‘Your endorsement level has gone from four to three,’ yay I lost an endorsement level.”
He went back and forth between the two a few times before he clarified it was this inconsistency with the system that he had a problem with.
The October 28 Overwatch update has arrived and the latest patch comes with a ton of critical bug fixes, many of which will give Sombra mains a huge sigh of relief.
Blizzard has been on a hot streak with major quality of life improvements over the past few days. On Oct. 20, it was Wrecking Ball and Lucio that received some much-needed changes. A few days later, on Oct. 22, multiple heroes had their health adjusted.
Now, it’s time for Sombra players to rejoice as the latest update is almost entirely for them. While a ton of bug fixes were in focus this time around, it’s clear that Sombra was Blizzard’s top priority for this patch.
If you’ve been avoiding the hero, now is the time to jump back in with your favorite hacker. Here’s everything there is to know about the latest Overwatch update.
Sombra’s Translocator was at the top of the list in the latest Overwatch patch.
Sombra is the only hero that received changes in the October 28 patch notes. Everything else on the list purely focused on general bug fixes. Two main changes for the Damage dealer should make her life easier than ever.
First up, a rare Translocator bug was squashed. Seemingly at random, her teleporting ability could go on its full six-second cooldown if it was destroyed while being used. As with most abilities in Overwatch, if they’re taken out the split moment in which they’re triggered, the game often refunds them right away. Sombra’s translocator should now function just the same.
Moreover, if you’re invisible with the hero, you can now rely on her intel more than ever before. Sombra is supposed to be notified when an enemy spots her while cloaked. That hadn’t been the case from time to time due to a pesky bug. Though the brand new update has completely fixed this issue.
