New Hero: Sigma
Sigma is an eccentric astrophysicist and volatile tank who gained the power to control gravity in an orbital experiment gone wrong. Manipulated by Talon and deployed as a living weapon, Sigma’s presence on the battlefield cannot be ignored. Sigma launches two Hyperspheres (gravitic charges), which bounce off walls and implode after a short duration, damaging enemies within a sizable radius. Using Experimental Barrier, he propels a floating barrier to a location of his choosing and he can dismiss the barrier at any time. With Kinetic Grasp Sigma freezes incoming projectiles in midair, converting them into shields. Accretion allows Sigma to gather a mass of debris and flings it at an enemy to knock them down. Unleashing his full powers with Gravitic Flux, Sigma takes flight, lifts enemies in a targeted area, and launches them into the sky before slamming them back down. Learn more about Sigma on his hero page.GENERAL UPDATES
Feature Update: Endorsements
Developer Comment: A commonly requested feature for the Workshop is the ability to track healing, so we’ve added two new Event types and three new Values to make this possible. We’ve also added Events to make it easier to detect players joining and leaving matches. To support the creation of admin-style privileges for custom games, the owner of the game can now be detected using Host Player. Finally, we’ve added the ability to scale, invert, and rotate a player’s input throttle to make controlling characters in third person easier.BUG FIXES

Hey rakspak if you DM me your in game name I’ll take a look. Since there are no servers in the Middle East we sometimes see bad network quality due to general internet issues.
Since launching we’ve worked to expand to more regions. I know we haven’t gotten servers into the Middle East yet but it’s absolutely a region we’re looking at. This process can be a bit slow, sorry for that.
I didn’t see the negative comments because I came to this thread late, but a core tenet of Overwatch is together we are strong. I’d encourage anyone who considers themselves a part of this community to be a force for positive change in this world.
