2019-02-27 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Abilities

  • Eye of Horus (R)
    • Cooldown increased from 45 seconds to 60 seconds

Talents

  • Level 1
    • Slumber Shells (E)
      • Adjusted functionality:
        • Hitting an enemy Hero with Sleep dart grants Ana 25% Movement Speed for 3 seconds

Developer Comment: We're buffing up some of Ana's underperforming talents to make them more competitive with their counterparts. In addition, since we greatly increased its reliability, we're slightly increasing the cooldown of Eye of Horus to get ahead of potential frustration issues with a globally damaging Heroic being on such a low cooldown.

Bug Fixes

  • Ana: Eye of Horus can no longer hit and heal allied vehicles.
  • Ana: Fixed an issue with the Anti-Healer talent increasing the duration of the healing reduction by an incorrect amount.

Developer Comment: Ana came to the Nexus during the ‘Quest Revolution' where we were adding them in as many places as we could. We have learned a lot since that time, so we spent some time re-designing and re-organizing Ana's talent tree. Bringing Aim Down Sights into her base Shrike functionality gives us a design solve for the powerful yet flawed Piercing Darts quest. The rest of the talent changes and shuffles were directed at opening up some new builds while keeping all of her current beloved capabilities!

Bug Fixes

  • Ana: Fixed an issue allowing cooldowns to tick down during Time Stop if the Hero is affected by Nano Boost.

Developer Comment: While Ana’s current win-rate is sitting above most other Healers, and North of 50%, we have made some changes to make her feel more meaningful in solo-Support compositions. Along with the addition to self- sustain through Shrike, we also took the opportunity to do some Talent balancing as well. While there are no major outliers in terms of win-rate, she definitely has some Talents that are overshadowing others in terms of pick- rates. We have tried to address the majority of these to hopefully open up some new strategic choices for Ana players. We really enjoyed the changes internally, and we’re excited to see what players can do with them.

Bug Fixes

  • Ana: Debilitating Dart activation is no longer audible when the player camera is far from Ana’s location.

2018-02-06 Patch Notes

2017-10-11 Balance Update

Hero Updates

Stats

  • Basic Attack Damage increased from 30 to 33

Talents

  • Level 4
    • Overdose (Passive)
      • Adjusted functionality:
        • No longer applies to Biotic Grenade
        • Sleep Dart now applies 3 Doses to targets hit

Developer Comment: Ana has had an incredibly successful launch into the Nexus, and seems to be falling into a great place balance-wise. We are still light on high-level data for her, so our changes this patch are very light. We realize that she has some synergy concerns and wanted to get a small jump on the largest catalyst to those – Overdose. While playing her internally before launch, we knew she had the potential to single-handedly shift the meta, not to mention increase the amount of double-support we see. Rest assured that we are keeping a close eye on both of these concerns and are prepared to act accordingly if the need arises.
