Reinhardt’s range-finding Workshop Mode is only one small part of a larger project currently underway by DarwinStreams to make a new-and-improved practice mode for players.
Unlock the fattest of shatters
In the new mode, there are two circles surrounding Reinhardt, one blue one at 20 meters out and another red one much closer.
The blue circle denotes Reinhardt’s Earthshatter range and the red shows the range of his basic hammer swing attack.
Reinhardt’s Earthshatter already does a pretty good job of visualizing how far it goes with animations alone, but DarwinStreams Workshop mode will allow players to really dial in the range on the ability.
It will also help players know exactly how close that annoying, flanking Tracer has to get before you can punish her with Reinhardt’s hammer and not just whiff it completely.
As we said earlier a code for the massive new training mode isn’t available yet, but we will update as soon as it comes out.
Is Role Lock coming to Overwatch?
There’s been a lot of talk about a 2-2-2 role lock coming to Overwatch League for Stage 4 and those rumors seemed to be confirmed by pro player Baek ‘Fissure’ Chan-hyung on stream after he retired from the L.A. Gladiators.
Just because role queue is coming to the Overwatch League doesn’t mean it will for sure be headed to the main game, but considering how Blizzard has handled new Overwatch features in the past with OWL, it definitely could happen.
Jeff Kaplan did tease “big changes” coming to Overwatch this summer earlier in the year, and role lock would certainly be one of the biggest changes the game has seen yet.
