Wdym, you’re arguing he starts to fall of in Diamond which is simply not true. I am stating a fact that in every rank besides GM he is an above average pick. All because a hero isn’t good in EVERY rank doesn’t mean players should be discouraged to play them.
Again, how is being the 4th most picked DPS in most ranks not enough to get you to GM? The reality is, Genji mains in gold or plat are hardstuck because they aren’t good enough, not because they are ‘discouraged’ by their hero being bad in the top rank which they will never even get to and thats the truth.
If they can’t climb in plat, how would they ever make it to GM to even be worried about Genji’s success in high elo?
what genji needs is his ult set so it cant be dmg boosted BUT the rest of his kit buffed.
doing 170 dmg per ‘combo’ is honestly solid, sure its not quick kills but its good enough the dmg boosts and nano’s make it actually worthwhile but in doing so it puts genji in a position where they (bliz) are afraid of buffing his base kit for fear it’ll give him his ult too fast.
