There were so many hero balance changes put on the ptr, but Symmetra got nothing? Really? She needs lots of quality of life changes.
Oh but she did get something! A nice fat nerf.
Calm down. The chances are it’s a minor decrease in DPS, that while unwarranted, isn’t a fat nerf.
When it’s on a hero who is probably the weakest hero in the DPS category, while ALSO buffing other DPS heroes around her, it’s a fat nerf.
(She also deals more damage at low charge, which you’re more likey to be on)
Oof. They should just up her beam damage at this point - it’s so weak.
How would you feel if she has more damage in her weapon and less damage in her turrets? And I mean with number changes that add up to a flat buff.
Absolutely fine by me. I prefer more damage under my control anyway.
I would rather she have a very strong weapon and teleporter and have the turrets as a supplement / utility than her main damage source. Would feel better for both me and my enemies.
She got a nerf, i’m literally criying
I don’t want a damage buff. I want another charge level. From 60 dps, each level would take 1 second to charge but only increase her damage by 30 dps. The max level would still be 180 dps.
I also want these changes:
Yeah I’d much prefer sym to work this way as well.
hey you told it all by yourself, it’s balance changes, symettra needs way more than a simple “balance change”.
The Junkrat mains are here for you. We know how you feel.
People were quick to call the change a buff to Symm every time someone pointed out the fact she got 0 changes.
Now it’s actually been confirmed as a nerf people are backtracking and saying ‘oh but it’s not that big of a nerf’ LOL ugh your minds!
It’s almost as if people’s minds change with the more information we get. This is a minor change, peroid.
That 0.17 sec is from starting with a lvl 1 beam, the values for lvl 1 and 2 aren’t as significantly affected by the change. However when you start attacking armor with level 3 you lose 24 DPS. Add healing from enemy team, and yeah, the nerf starts to become a problem.
I personally wouldn’t call it a minor change.
