So, I got enough gold saved the other day to purchase Mei, my OW waifu before mean uncle Jeff murdered her. And I’m kinda puzzled. She seems strong but nothing on paper screams broken to me at least. I don’t really feel I get any major power spikes other than lvl 10 but I still end up winning more games than I probably should. Even when playing against her I don’t feel particularly oppressed, I just lose sometimes. Are there any standout talents or are the other talents just weak in comparison? To me they seem pretty low key mostly. Or is it that you don’t really notice constant 15-20% upgrades until the very end?
When released people said she was pretty balanced but avalanche and crystallize are too strong, and which received minor nerfs the next patch. So how come does a hero, and I’m paraphrasing what I believe was the general forum sentiment at the time, that is durable but low damage and lacking in reliable hard CC end up with slightly over 55% WR and 100% pick/ban rate? Sure avalanche is nice and all but compared to other ults in the game is it really strong enough to skyrocket her WR just because its CD is slightly too short?
What do you think? Is it the base stats, talents ults or what that need looking into?
