But yes, after a couple weeks of foreboding hints from Blizzard, the day of reckoning's finally arrived; and the Patch only on PC for now, is here to nerf McCree and Widowmaker. Some notes from the developers:
-Recovery time (i.e. the amount of time before McCree starts reloading) decreased from 0.75 seconds to 0.3 seconds
-Bullet damage decreased from 70 to 45
Developer Comments: McCree was performing too well against all targets, making him feel like a must-pick in many situations. By reducing the damage of his alternate fire, McCree is now significantly weaker against tanks like Roadhog and Reinhardt, but still maintains his lethality against smaller targets like Tracer and Genji.
-Alternate Fire (Scoped Shot)Base damage decreased from 15 to 12Note: Scoped shot damage multiplier remains unchanged
-Headshot damage multiplier increased from 2x to 2.5x
-Players must now wait for the unscoping animation to completely finish before scoping
-Ultimate cost increased by 10%
Developer Comments: In the right hands, Widowmaker can often feel unstoppable—even when just landing body shots instead of critical heads shots. The changes to her alternate fire weaken body shot damage while leaving her headshot damage unchanged. Additionally, we felt her Ultimate ability, Infra-Sight, was coming up a little too frequently, especially considering its impact on the game.
Jackie Chan was quoted by the THR while giving a talk at the Shanghai Movie Festival saying, “Warcraft made 600 million RMB [$91 million] in two days—this has scared the Americans,” said Chan. “If we can make a film that earns 10 billion [$1.5 billion], then people from all over the world who study film will learn Chinese, instead of us learning English.”
Chan continued on and told the primarily Chinese crowd that “it is you, not us, who makes China powerful.” Continuing, he added, “So, thank you all—we hope the Chinese film industry gets even more powerful.”
