The Career Profile page has been redesigned to provide a better, more streamlined experience when viewing player profiles. Aside from the brand new look, we’ve also added some new quality-of-life features:

  • Statistics are displayed in a tabular format, separated by “Average/10 min”, “Best”, “Total”, providing a cleaner, more readable view
  • In-game achievements are grouped by category, and can be filtered by what you’ve earned and have yet to unlock
  • Player Icons are now grouped by category and can be filtered by hero and owned status
General
  • Capture the Flag in-game achievements have been moved to the Maps category
  • Added additional playback languages for Echo’s Duplicate ability video
