When is there an update???

Schreeeeee creator

There will be one soon! I'm having complications with adding the update. This website wasn't letting me add anything. I will try it again, soon.

admin *

Hey! Workshop.codes admin here, do you have any details on what was going wrong?

Schreeeeee creator

It's working just fine, now. A couple weeks ago, I was trying to add a revision to this project (I was on a Windows computer). It would just kick me out and back to the home page. It's good now, though.

JOJO

Nice gamemode! Keep up the work!!!

Schreeeeee creator

Thanks, dude.

Update Log

2.9
X1RP9

Made for Overwatch Version 1.51.1.0

Code: X1RP9

General Changes

  • All commands and rule are now more organised and are easier to understand. This helps both me, and others who want to modify my settings easily understand what everything does.

  • New Experimental settings (Enable it in the Workshop Settings Card)

Hero Changes

Reaper

Death Blossom

Repair Pack

  • Total healing increased by 25%

Rally

  • No longer provides 3 charges extra of Repair Pack when activated

Workshoper Notes:

With these changes to CC, I hope to reduce the effectivity of CC by making it absolutely useless! JK. Really, I just wanted to experiment with some features and I though this was kind-of cool. This will not make it into the "final" gamemode.

These Brigitte change aim to directly increase the healing potential, while also keep her main features intact. This change also doesn't just affect her ultimate, too. I have more ideas to make her better, as a support.

Stay tuned! - Me

Dev Notes:

The auto-heal seemed to activate too quickly, making it too easy to just back out of a fight and wait in a safe place to heal. The healing it provided also was too little. I made these changes to counteract these problems.

Brigitte has recently been nerfed into the ground. This change was made increased her effectiveness while using her ultimate.

Mei's healing from Cryofreeze was significantly more than before she was modified. This change was made to not make that happen anymore.

Torbjorn really didn't need this added function. It was not really warranted.

Winston/Wrecking Ball's changes didn't really make sense. It didn't really impede on their effectiveness, nor did it more them more effective.

With the new Workshop settings card, I can now let you, the viewer/player to customise my game without being a workshop expert. I plan to add lots more functionality in the future, but I can only add a couple as of now.

Enjoy the new patch!

VK6WX

Made for Overwatch Version 1.51.0.0

Code: VK6WX

General Changes

  • Health packs no longer heal 25 more health

Hero Changes

General

  • A heal over time effect now activates after 10 seconds of not taking damage

Echo

  • Now disallows the use of Fortify when in use

Torbjorn

Overload

  • Now provides 100 extra temporary armor (was 80)

  • Auto reloads after activated

Creator Notes:

I noticed that after a lot of fights, there are some times when a healer can't get to you, or you are stuck in a place with low health and cannot leave without immediately being shot down. I wanted to make a fix for this. Also, this means supports don't have to use up resources that could be used for the next fight.

Genji has become more powerful with the recent changes to his character. I only made the change to his projectile speed because he was lacking in some departments. Now, he is not.

Mei's Cryofreeze is a good ability. Maybe too good. The ability's max duration is a bit too long, especially when contesting the point or payload. I wanted to fix that and try not to change its effectiveness. So I made some changes. Also, I've heard a lot of people ask Blizzard to incorporate the ammo rest feature, so I did that :P

Orisa's new patch update has made her Halt! ability absolute garbage. It's not even an ability anymore. I wanted to give it some functionality that'll actually help Orisa's team. I need to fix some bugs and stuff, but the ability is still pretty solid, IMO.

Tobjorn had only 80 extra armor whenever he used Overload. Now, with the new health pool feature, I can give him the 100 armor he deserves. Idk why I made the auto reload thing a feature. I’m probably going to remove it in the next bug fixing patch.

7exs2

Adjustments:

  • Torbjorn's "Overload" heal per second has been set to 15 per second
  • Made adjustments to Mercy's Ult
  • Changed the overall function of Mercy's "Guardian Angel" ability
  • Changed Brigitte's cooldown for her "Shield Bash" ability

Comments:
I am really starting to struggle with Mercy's ult. I have a debug command built-in just to test out her ult. It works on Workshop-generated Dummy Bots, but not on the bots with A.I. built-in (the ones that you add in from the lobby). Can anyone tell me if this is a problem that they have? I want this to be able to work on actual games, and I can't tell if it works or not on real players (since I have no friends😢). Can anyone tell me if this works on actual players, and give me feedback on how balanced it is? Thank you so much for reading this!
