When the best OT / most positive streamer is mad too, you know there’s a problem
That post is like a slap in the face waking you up out of a dream to realize the game you played for years and loved and grinded to get a meaningless high number on your monitor is never going to be in a good state again because of the disconnect that has just been made disgustingly apparent
They did the same thing with paladins, there were (supposedly, I don’t play it) 2 characters with 60% winrate but less than 1% pickrate, while the top played heroes only had 40% winrate even though they were the actual meta hero
It’s strange though, because from the dev post, it seems that their balance philosophy is quite on point (i.e. focus on the top ranks, but keep the lower ranks in mind). However, they seem to fail at properly interpreting statistics and executing their balance philosophy.
What heros are you talking about?
60% win rate hero in flank category still bork anything below diamond they’re like Moira with burst dps and the meta dps ones with 40% win rate aren’t the most popular also you won’t find any decent player for the above meta dps hero below diamond
So, soldire and genji are fine, after all they can compeat with a hero that is “imensly favourd by the meta”?
Good to know we have that off the list. And made sure that the devs have some knowlage.
But picking thos heros dont magicly make hanzo less OP.
And you said after all that all thats needed to get him out of the spot he is in where some changes to other heros, what other heros would you change to be on the lvl of Hanzo without creating a bigger powercreep?
Shift orisa power back into her shield and out of fortify
Maybe get rid of sigmas shield entirely since he doesn’t need 2 defensive abilities and re add his ability to block hook with it.
Make accretion reflect / eatable like everything else
Make immortality a flash ability on a shorter cooldown
But I’m just diamond so those aren’t perfect character changes
