[Update #2]: Overwatch 2's Battle for Olympus update has arrived with a fun novelty game mode and some truly awful challenges.

[Update]: Overwatch 2 has just nerfed Doomfist, Sojourn and Tracer, while Roadhog has managed to escape his fate... for now!

Last week Overwatch 2's Season 2 update arrived with Ramattra as a brand new tank hero, a new escort map by the name of Shambali Monastery, as well as a whole host of balance changes. Unfortunately, while the idea behind the balance tweaks was a noble one, the numerous buffs have ended up creating a far, far bigger problem than what we had before.

So in order to sort this newfound mess out, Blizzard has just announced that there will be a balance update coming later this week. The exact list of changes has not been announced just yet, but you can look forward to Doomfist, Roadhog, Sojourn and Tracer getting nerfed, while the newcomer Ramattra will most likely be getting some major buffs given how weak he currently is.

It's also worth mentioning that these are not going to be the only changes coming this week. So if you're like me and you're disappointed with how Junker Queen got treated in the last patch, don't lose hope just yet. With a bit of luck, Blizzard might just make her a bit tankier this week!

The final bit of good news is that Blizzard has fixed a major issue that prevent them from doing hotfixes all throughout Season 1. As such, balance updates should be coming out at a much faster pace than before which should hopefully prevent certain heroes from being overly dominant for two months straight.

Whatever the future might bring, I'll make sure to let you know once the full patch notes get revealed. Until then, have fun practicing with Ramattra!
