1.5G PTR update?

General Discussion
PTR just launched a 1.5G update. Nothing in announcements - any ideas?
DOOMFIST
That was my hope also!
Event ends > rumors leaks > Anniversary soon > 1.5G ptr patch.

Hype intensifies.
I'm calling BS. Mine is still using a version older than the main. 1.10.0 on the PTR, while the main is 1.10.1

Edit: AAAAAAAAAAAAAND as I post this, it starts updating. FML.
Fixes bug when Sombra translocator Zzzz...
Fixes bug when Orisa using Fortify Zzz....
Fixed the visual glitch of McCree Blackwatch skin ...

Do not hope, hope leads to disappointment.

EDIT : OHH SHEIT

What are the odds in your opinion of doomfist being released at any other time of the year besides blizzcon? I can't see it being very likely.

@OP. Slight soldier nerf/Slight McCree buff/Slight Pharamercy synergy nerf. That'd be my guess(aka hope).
soldier:
damage reduced from 20 - 16
spread reduced from 2.4 - 2.1

reaper: wraith form speed increased by 10%

rheinhart: maximum shield reduced from 2000 to 1500hp

pharah: 200hp replaced with 50 armor and 150hp
Don't see any new heroes or maps, but Lijiang is mysteriously unavailable in custom games.
Fixed a bug where Reaper could reach unintended locations.

Changed the voice lines for Genji to "I need healing!" for each slot.

I know these aren't the actual changes, but Jesus that would make Soldier worse than he was before the buff

And the babes awaiting the slaughter wept blood soaked tears.
Sombra: Broke "boop" line again. Will not realize it until it goes live and then will take an extra week to fix it via patch again.

Again biased towards Pharah...

Christ no.
Barely effects Soldier/McCree's damage against her.

It's a buff specifically targeting characters like Tracer.
If Tracer manages to get a hold of you, you deserve to die.
Might be a balance patch, hell could even be a new map/hero.
Hoping for those QoL Reaper charges.
It's just a map guys, calm down
