Overwatch Update: Ana to Get Nerfed Again? Blizzard Tweaks Winston and Roadhog
There are even more "Overwatch" changes coming after Blizzard addressed a recent issue. Roadhog and Ana are getting balance tweaks while Winston seems to be getting a buff.
Two "Overwatch" Tanks Gets Much-Needed Tweaks
Blizzard seems to be intent on wanting the "Overwatch" triple-tank meta but still wants to make these characters viable. With this in mind, PVP Live reports that both Roadhog and Winston are getting some changes that might secure them a spot in the meta. While this is Roadhog's third consecutive changes, some fans are pleased to hear about Winston's buff as they have been highly requesting for the studio to tweak him a bit.
To begin with, Roadhog's Scrap Gun now has a decreased spread of 20 percent. However, his Chain Hook now pills his targets 3.5 meters away and not the original 2. Moreover, the said skill's cooldown has increased from 6 to 8 seconds. On the other hand, the "Overwatch" character Winston has his critical hit volume decreased by 15 percent.
With these changes, Roadhog can hook farther and much more accurately at the cost of cooldown which means every hook throw must count. Meanwhile, Winston now has a better chance of surviving random shots from DPS characters like Soldier 76 or Tracer. This is a much-needed buff as the character is one of the least-frequently used tanks in the game.
Ana's Nanoboost Getting Damage Reduction Nerf?
In line with tanks, another PVP Live report explains that the current Bastion in the PTR is essentially unkillable when combining his new passive skill with Ana's Nanoboost. One video shows the situation wherein D.Va's ultimate only dealt a measly 144 damage to the omnic. Blizzard has already addressed this issue and they plan on capping the damage resistance to Ana's Nanoboost as a result.
While this may seem like a nerf on her part, it for fitting enough as Bastion and Ana combos would sweep and take over the meta. Now, the damage cap is set to 70 percent meaning that the 144 damage would now be at 300. Fans can play "Overwatch" on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

The US - China trade war impact on Tech
It’s only natural that the human and socio-economic impact of Covid-19 should have strained some international relationships, while it has certainly accelerated the tension that exists between China and the US. While there were suggestions that the two nations may have been inching towards a truce at the end of 2019, the Trump administration’s instances on blaming China for the coronavirus pandemic (the President even cited the country as the reason behind his decision to withdraw funding from the WHO) has sent tensions escalating once again. However, many believe that this is just a smokescreen for the underlying issue, as both nations look to position themselves as the dominant force in unveiling the next wave of wireless communication technology. But who’s paying the price for this ongoing conflict, and why has Taiwan recently emerged as a central player?
