Lucio suffers survivability nerfs on Overwatch’s PTR 1.10 update
Oh, hey hey.
Blizzard updated the PTR with some minor changes to Lucio and competitive maps, Blizzard clearly thought that Lucio was just a bit too good in the right handsm and Even though the nerf on his effective healing range in the last Overwatch PTR patch, the outcome was his speed was high enough, particularly while wall riding, for Lucio to engage in and disengage out of most situations a little bit with ease.
Lucio’s self-healing has also been reduced by 33% which makes Lucio players to be an easy target to kill if he’s trying to wall ride and zip around on walls to harass the enemy team. Meanwhile, his Sonic Amplifier has been buffed with a 25% increase in damage, and this should even out the minor changes to his abilities and also to inspire players to set down those Synaesthesia beats when it comes to DPS.
Here are the patch notes Geoff Goodman posted on Overwatch Forums.
