Patch Notes:

Listener Question:
This week it's from TimTheBearded via Discord:
So just now listening to episode 79 and you guys talked a bit about watchability and my question is do you think 6v6 is a bit too much? I struggle to watch comp OW because there is just too much going on and for the average watcher I would assume they would also be lost. Do you think it will be easier to watch if competitive was 5v5 or even 4v4? 8 characters would be a lot easier to follow than 12 in my opinion. What are your thoughts?


And that's it for this week! See you next week, loves!
