OVERWATCH LUNAR NEW YEAR EARLY PATCH NOTES…
CUSTOM GAME OPTIONS
• The Lobby section of Custom Game Settings has a new option “Data Center Preference”.
• This option provides the game creator with more control over where the game will be hosted.
• The default “Best Available” choice automatically provides the creator with the best quality connection available to them.
