Hey, as the Hannah Montana song goes, everybody makes mistakes. Everybody has those days. Or rather, a leopard can't change its spots. But, uh, I guess Blizzard can.
When Doomfist's skins mysteriously appeared deep into Overwatch's PTR (after he was pushed into the test realm), there was trouble afoot. Fans complained. Fans cried. Fans were deeming the game unplayable. There was something blatantly wrong here. Blizzard had labeled an animal-print skin for new hero Doomfist as "Cheetah," when in reality, the spots matched those of a leopard. Yikes.
Blizzard seemed to catch wind of the mistake pretty quick though, as reported by DotEsports. That was evidenced today, when the PTR was updated with a teensy little fix: no longer is the skin called "Cheetah," it is now called "Leopard." (Ah, that'll do.) Overwatch lead writer Michael Chu even took to the forums, begging for forgiveness. "Please forgive us," he wrote on a forum post calling out the unfortunate error.
In the meantime, Doomfist remains on the PTR for the time being. If you have Overwatch on PC, you can test out the melee-centric hero now. For the rest of players scattered across consoles, Doomfist will be unleashed alongside other balance changes in the coming weeks.
