Double your chances for beekeeper Mei

Happily, this XP boost is occurring just before the current event ends on June 12, so Overwatchfans will have some extra chances to unbox Anniversary skins and dance emotes. You’ll still be able to earn 20% bonus experience for playing with friends in addition to the slight modifier for competitive games.

There was an additional small patch on PC today that will be rolled into a larger patch for the console versions. It fixes the bug where players will fall through moving platforms while using their dance emotes and cleans up a couple of exploits that allowed certain characters to reach places they shouldn’t be able to.
