    As a winston main i strongly disagree as winston has glasses therefore he is smarter than the rest of the cast leading to easy outplays.

    I'd argue mercy gets so much value in this meta because she enables the strong dps so much, and zen too, due to damage boost. Not because she has particularly high heals, as she barely out heals Winston's gun

    I'm a self admitted edgelord, all I wanna know is if Reaper can still do work this season. And if so, how do you switch it up to adapt around it? Alot of it feels like getting lucky with flank picks. And the team isn't being as aggressively mobile to get on objectives with him as they used to be, or at least what I've observed in open cue comp on PS4. Looking at you Sombra.

  • Vanitas50

    You know that scene in the Overwatch 2 hype trailer that felt like years ago cause we haven't had news about it yet? That one scene where Winston is looking steely eyed in the face of death? Yeah, imagine that, but the big robot is actually the meta of the game currently.

  • Vanitas50
    Vanitas502 miesięcy temu

    Also, this is my personal opinion, but l honestly feel like if they are gonna nerf Sigs shield deployment, in return they should give SOME of its health back. Like, at least make it 900 again. l'd be content with that honestly.

  • Vanitas50
    Vanitas502 miesięcy temu

    l noticed how when l picked up zen l suddenly was...putting in work. Like, don't think l'm some play of the game zenny, heck no, but.... l was getting MANY kills and doggone it was something l couldn't believe. l'm glad it wasn't my imagination that zen felt like he had power.

  • Kevin Super Charger
    Kevin Super Charger2 miesięcy temu

    I love Overwatch, it's one of my favorite games, but the way the game is balanced is not really fair. I am a Mercy and a Winston main, tho I can play all tanks and healers, I feel like if I'm not around at least two decent healers or dps that can protect me from the enemies I'll get destroyed in a sec. The dps in the other hand pretty much only get buffs while the shields are trash rn they're pretty much overpowered, specially Reaper and Junkrat. In a game as Reinhardt I was getting healed by a Mercy and an Ana a Reaper came and just killed me with 4 bullets, I don't know what Blizzard is doing, but I hope they nerf the dps or buff the shields/healing. Like Sigma his shield has around the same health as Winston's, but his shield should be around a 1000 now since he has such a long shield cooldown specially since all his other abilities have massive cooldowns as well, he's just not playable anymore as a shield tank but more as an off-tank like Zarya/Roadhog

    Maybe im making mistakes, but I see that "protect the president" playstyle always in use now. Mercy and Reinhardt + another shield tank and A tier healer. You have duel shield, invincibility and a revive while dps fire away from a distance. It's hard to play the angles and heights even with that combo wombo

    As a long time players here is my completely uneducated idea for a 2021 Road Map if the game is delayed until 2022: Blizzcon: Announce OW going Free To Play (mid March) Announce new “Clash” mode (Live on PTR) Announce Delay of OW2 Mid-March: Release A Content Drop Archives Free to Play New Clash Mode *creates momentum and gets players back May: Anniversary Event *keeps momentum going with hopes of coasting through summer months. August: Release closed beta *allow access via twitch drops so it creates huge momentum. October: Closed beta ends and Halloween Event Starts *ride this momentum to Blizzcon Blizzcon: Announce set release date and open beta for Jan December: Christmas event January 2022: Release open beta Game releases on Anniversary in May It’s not great but it would create a constant amount of content to hold attention until the new game comes out.

    @Conrad Gude-Martinez honestly, comparing the design on release and modern day is like night and day, like look at zenyatta’s volley ( mechanic around from release) compared to hanzo’s storm arrow( added much later), volley takes some prediction and can make good moments, for storm arrow you just press E to kill an enemy

  • Conrad Gude-Martinez

    Correct, look at widow, hanzo storm arrow, and echo spam combo, all one shotting 200-300 health heroes, and can melt heroes like roadhog at a distance and drop him before they are in danger themselves

  • Vitor Vena
    Vitor Vena2 miesięcy temu

    Echo needs to be nerfed. Tracer should not be getting nerfed at all. Hanzo didnt need the buff. Ball still dominating since the nerf barely scratched the surface. Zen should be fine with either 30% or 25% discord depebding on what direction the meta heads towards.g And Sigmas damage should have been nerfed instead of his barrier because it didnt fix the problem while also making him less of a main tank and more frustrating to play.

  • Lukas Lambraia

    You didn't think about a Rein/Winston combo

  • Ryan Ager
    Ryan Ager3 miesięcy temu

    So what you are saying is that the next experimental card is going to have: Zenyatta: Discord reduces from 30% to 25% Hanzo: Storm arrow recovery time increased per shot from 0.25 to 0.3, arrow speed increased from 110 to 125, arrow damage reduced to 100, from 125. (Stronger against other dps, weaker against tanks) Echo: Tri-shot, damage reduced from 17 to either 16 or 15. Sticky Bombs, explosion damage reduced from 25 to 20. (Landing all sticky bombs results in 150 damage) Baptiste: primary fire damage reduced from 24 to 20 Immortality Field cooldown increased from 25 to 35 minimum. McCree: Fan the hammer, damage reduced from 50 to 40, fire rate increased to 1 per 0.1s from 1 per 0.13s. (Increases dps of fan the hammer From 385 to 400, reduces the damage from 300 to 200) I still think Echo and Sombra would be prime candidates for 175 base health, but I would check game balance before implementing the health adjustments. I still think Brig needs to be adjusted, either her Repair pack healing, or the range on her healing. She should not be able to put heal a Winston killing a zen 19 metres away just by throwing 3 packs and going back to swinging, shield bashing, Whipshot etc. No other support can save an ally like that while turning around and focusing on the rest of the fight in the meantime, nor should they be able to do so. I’m just kidding. These ideas make too much sense

  • Stefano Raparo
    Stefano Raparo3 miesięcy temu

    i have a solution: make damage doing only a % of damage to shied, for example: if a shot does 50 to an enemy, just make that this damage will only do a 60% of the total to the shield. you can even add some "power up" to some characters, for example: junkrat does 80% instead and so on, so that there will be characters that can really breack shields fast and other that will just struggle

    I said all this shit months ago. Huh, interesting. But everyone told me to shut up, I don't understand because I'm Gold. Whatever. If you're looking to grow a little bit, you should watch some console VODs and discuss Switch Torb Junkrat meta. With a peppering of Reaper, Pharah, and Bastion. Blizzard isn't going to balance for them. And the entire playerbase is full of idiots throwing by just standing on cart nonstop and shitting on players who try to do the right thing. Then the SR system punishes them because "other players don't do that." Big neglected market waiting for you.

    I think Freedo will be surprised when he sees that Contenders Korea is playing Winston/Zarya to huge success right now. Not that it changes the ranked meta... but still. And I heard that the "Double Bubble" comp requires like literally all 6 players to have perfect positioning and cooldown usage for it to work lmao EDIT: Bit of a useless comment given how this tier list is about ranked and not pro play (kinda forget that sometimes LOL) but it's very interesting how different semi-pro play and ranked play are rn
