    So you're saying that retaliate now works in overwatch?

    I'm having an issue in the distance where if I overwatch all 3 survivors only one will attack, during overwarctch, even though there are other walkers in range.

    Is it possible that the other walkers were in passive mode?

    @Kaz
    Isn't your first "ps" exactly why I made this discussion??
    Do you mean revenge?

    Ops, yes. Revenge!

    Anyway, I have to bring you some bad news guys. Since now overwatch is unreliable, we are going to return to the previous behavior where Overwatch + Retaliate/Revenge doesn't work on the same turn.

    We don't have an ETA for the fix to be applied to the game, but it seems that we'll have to fix it only in the next update.

    Sorry about that. :(

    Dammit, I know @JayZ and @jimmorrison369 have been carrying the banner for this issue for a LONG time (with myself and many, many others right behind them), and I was PUMPED to see it finally, after all this time, get fixed to work the way it's supposed to. What a bummer that it only lasted an hour or two :(

    On the bright side, at least we know they are in fact trying to finally get it to work right. Good luck @Kaz and crew on getting it right. Fingers crossed that it is in full working order by the next update.

    I used to be cool with overwatch and retaliate not working together.
    Thought it was the trade-off, it was intended for all I knew...

    It did ache when I found out it was intended to work together but for years wasn't important enough to look at...

    After playing around with it.
    It was grand, it was sweet.
    It got taken away and now it really hurts the most.
    After experiencing it I don't want to go back...

    They'd still be attacked in overwatch if in range and there is LOS.

    The issue was "fixed" yesterday, meaning that overwatch is now working the same way it was working before 2.12. But it also means that Retaliate and Revenge doesn't work on the same turn as overwatch. :(

    We had a meeting today to discuss it and since it requires a mandatory update, it'll be included in the next update later this year. Sorry for the buzzkill, guys, but at least we know how cool it'll be when it's fixed, right? :p

    Not if they are standing still...
    Overwatch need movement.
    Very true. I was assuming walkers were moving around from the context given by @gbarton16

    Even when moving, my assault hardly ever hits more than one. :disappointed:
