Brig has a 4.49% pickrate & 58.26% winrate this week in GM

She has the 3rd highest winrate in the game while also being the 9th most picked hero (4th most picked support)

I don’t know if people can really say her winrate is due to her being a niche hero with a low pickrate anymore…

Brig rework seems to be doing just fine


Players are just mad, that they can’t go Rambo anymore with Brig.


Meta is in flux right now. You can’t look at weekly stats after 2 days and have them mean much. Team fights are pure chaos right now 'cause of the patch, Brig kinda works better in that.


Her win rate is because of the niche nature of her kit.

Shes a bad support.

Torb, and sym cover 1 and 3 on the winrate list

I rest my case your honor


3rd Most picked Healer
9th Most picked Hero



if you cant auto-win by picking her then she deserves buffs!


actually it generally takes 2-3 days for meta to settle in GM. GMs are smart dudes they figure out what works best fairly fast (and also talk with Contenders/OWL players etc.)


First time double shield isn’t meta after role queue released, this is an unprecedented situation.

Then play her

Thanks for the regular “Brig is fine” threads. Can’t have the devs getting any funny ideas.

Actually if you look at the top ten highest winrates the only heroes who have solid pick rates is sig and rein.

They’ll probably nerf rein in a couple weeks. :disappointed::disappointed:

Yea, I don’t really understand the comments about her being weak. I’ve found her to be strong and useful in certain situations, just not all of them.


You mean the same Sym & Torb that have 1/4 of her pickrate combined? Case dismissed. Her 58% winrate with a close to 5% pickrate is significant.

Right, I can only imagine her pickrate goes up as the week goes on since “this week” stats are still majority based on the patch before Orisa/Sig/Bap/Hanzo nerfs

I love to.

You mean in not most of them.

Brig is decent in 1 or 2 niche situations and honestly in most of those cases lucio is just as good if not better.

I didn’t think it would be ok, but it seems to have turned out. I’ll play her myself nowadays. She is really fun and seems effective although the other team can negate you if they work at it (mostly by denying opportunities to proc inspire).

My point is low pickrates inflate winrate numbers if you didn’t get my meaning for bringing up torb and sym.

I find it not to be about her being weak but more her having conflicting gameplay and abillties.

Imagine the balance of widow is to play her like soldier but her abillties and flow tell you to be a sniper.

I think that’s why people dont like her

Her balance tells you to play like mercy or ana but her abillties and weapons tell you to play like rein or zarya


That is my biggest issue with brig and I love brig.

Yes, 100%

I am just so surprised that the average person doesn’t get this.

Blizzard makes a melee hero that has to play far behind the front line. Like WT Actual F. But somehow people have just jumped in line to call it a win, cuz it works…sometimes.
