- Dev Update:

- Doesn’t just exist for player feedback, although this is important
- Most important thing: is it stable? Does it work correctly? Allows them to iron out bugs and issues. Is it ready to go live?
- Hero changes:
- Sombra: needs a little bit of a bump, but will do it gradually. Not intended to be a vicious assassin. She’s a backline disrupter, not a quick killer.
- Roadhog: the hook. “Feels really unfair”, they have to approach it from both angles. This is something we’ve discussed many times.
- D.Va: “Doing too much right now”. They like her mobility. Unique: doesn’t have to reoload. Pull her back a bit so she’s not great at everything. Keep her mobility and shooting cadence.
- Ana: They really like her kit. They want to pull back her healing on large, coordinated groups. Looking at grenade changes, but not a drastic rework.
- Jumping strategy. JB hates it.
