Overwatch, Blizzard’s latest and first FPS game, has been immensely popular since its launch. Since it’s being a phenomenon these days, XG Blog decided to feature this column as a summary of what happened in the community of Overwatch every last week.
Overwatch is Now the Most popular Game in Korean Cyber Cafes, Followed by LoL
According to the ranking of the popularity tracked by Gametrics, Overwatch just beats out League of Legends, which has been on the top for nearly four years, and is throned as the most popular game in cyber cafes in Korea now.
The gap between the two powers is quite narrow. Overwatch is only around 2 percent ahead its follower. Hence it would be interesting to observe how long the lead can last, with the upcoming Competitive Play mode this month.

Torbjörn is Being Nerfed on Consoles
Actually, it is the turret to be blamed this time. Feedbacks from console players suggest that the turret of Torbjörn is so difficult to be aimed by controller that it is “utterly ruining the game on PS4.”
An upcoming patch was then confirmed by Jeff Kaplan, the game director, that the damage done by turret will be reduced by 30% on console only, while the PC version will remain unchanged. And the update will come out in middle to late July, depending on certification process from Sony and Microsoft.
