Overwatch PTR Patch Notes – July 24, 2019

A new Overwatch patch is in development and now available for testing! To share your feedback or report any issues, please post in the PTR Feedback or PTR Bug Report forums.

Please note that the below patch notes only include changes currently available for testing on the PTR. While many of these changes may also be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in a future patch, the PTR is PC-only and only reflects changes coming specifically to that platform.


Practice Range

  • Practice Range has been temporarily disabled on PTR-only. For players looking to try out Sigma’s abilities in a solo setting, private Custom Games can still be made in the Game Browser.

Role Queue

  • Fixed a bug that caused the Ready button to be displayed when no roles had been selected, when using a controller.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause players to be on multiple regional leaderboards at the same time.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause players to appear on the Top 500 All leaderboard when 1 or more roles are still in placement matches.
  • Fixed a bug that caused players who allow the "Waiting on you to select role" timer to expire, to get into an unusable state if they were grouped in LFG.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented players from interacting with the role selection invite using a gamepad if inside the Play menu.
  • Fixed a bug where queue time wasn't displayed properly while in skirmish.
