You’re welcome! haha We all gotta work together! I am starting to believe the devs might not have seen these posts, we just gotta keep at it! They finally fixed his tank shot bug too, so we’re a step in the right direction!

One day on one post we will see some sort of update for Bastion. Just got to hold on to hope.

And play the event in the mean time :slight_smile:

Bastion really seems like he needs some help. He’s a pretty weak hero other than in a few extremely niche situations such as on Junkertown. Blizzard don’t seem to be acknowledging many threads like these on the forums or really anywhere at all, there’s the occasional comment, but there isn’t much developer response. All we can hope for is that Blizzard are reading, but not responding at least.

I think a problem that might arise with a Bastion rework/buff/etc is that there will probably be a lot of outcry saying that Bastion is now too strong. I don’t think this is a valid reason to not help him, however, but for heroes like Bastion, buffs can lead to some very vocal people getting upset, and it might lead to a Bastion nerf or similar, which is far from what anyone in their right mind wants.

Either way, Bastion needs help. Doubt Blizzard will take notice though.

This is the reason why i Personally Think that Bastion Might be the “Someone Else” That Jeff mentioned, in This Post:

Not giving a name, As to keep the Knee Jerk reactions Down… Perhaps to later Buff Bastion while giving a lengthy reason? :thinking:

All we can do is Talk, And Hope at this point.-

It could be. There’s a few heroes that I hope Jeff is talking about, namely heroes like Bastion and Reinhardt.

The community has severe knee-jerk reactions to pretty much any buff or nerf, especially to niche or lower-pickrate heroes or those who currently have a bit of a “troll-pick” reputation, like Torbjörn or Symmetra. (Not that they are troll picks, but they definitely have a negative reception from a fair few players).

Hopefully heroes like Reinhardt and Bastion get some help soon.

As far as i can tell, They have given at least some kind Of reply about Most Of the Heroes, Especially the “F-Tier List”, Yet Bastion seems to be the only one they are Dodging Questions about…

Thanks for checking this thread out, And remember to always keep it Positive!

The thing is, the amount of people complaining about Genji, Tracer, Widow being annoying or op etc on the forums, but they haven’t really gotten any changes. Same with Moira and Brigitte. People just have to learn to have him in games if he gets some buff or change. As long as a buff to him isn’t too intense, then there shouldn’t be a problem.

Yeah. This exactly. I don’t agree with such opinions, but we all know for a fact that this community can get very vocal (to say the least) about such balance changes. I do think people should learn to adapt more instead of complaining.

My only fear is that Good Bastion players will be like, Reported in mass, out of
Pure Rage… (More so than they already are now…)

I get a LOT Of Salty Reports/Messages on Console, Due to someone running directly at me, Because they thought i was an Easy kill… :joy_cat:

I would hate to see people get punished for making better use out of their Mains like that… Already Kinda happened to both Symmetra And sombra players…

Now that i think about it, Most of those Reports come from Junkrat mains specifically… :thinking: I don’t have anything against junk mains, But they really should know better than to run head first at a Bastion… Is this how they think the game plays nowadays?

Oh yeah when I played bastion 3 days ago in low gravity for fun, I kept killing this McCree who flew at me with the low gravity and I killed him every time. Later added me to tell me that I was “a sh*tty mercy main with no skill” just because I played mercy season 7. (Which is last time I played comp, I don’t like comp)

People are just easily mad but that’s what we have to deal with. If bastion buffs come out and a good player is annoying people, then that’s the peoples problem. Again with my last statement, Genji, Tracer, Etc, can have extremely good players and the enemy will get mad about that if that’s how they are.

I made a rework for Bastion as well. Without seeing this post, or the one referenced here, I made similar thing like camp 3 and 4 mixed together. You can read about the changes on page 31.
Read about them below:

I think bastion as a character is balanced. But the team itself needs to play a certain way for it not to be risky

Whenever I get a bastion main I always switch to ana and try my best to pocket while my teammates do orisa and try to play around bastion

I will say though it is a little unfair that junkrat takes 0 damage from mines and grenades but bastion cannot rocket jump during ult without having to heal, seems a bit biased

Over 200 hundred likes! This is pretty cool. If we get enough notice we may get one orange post. Keep it up!

People are too used to not seeing a Bastion, or when they do easily dealing with him, that as soon as the Tracer dies consistently to a Bastion more often the Tracer will complain because suddenly her easy pray is killing her.
