What about Tracer and Hanzo? I seem to have missed these patch notes…


#16

It is so good. I am close to let a tear out.


#18

Tracer’s pulse bomb overall damage went from 400 to 300.

Hanzo, well it’s a lot… hopefully I can link you to the changes.


#19

Lots of things actually.


#20

Everything that is not listed as a bug, can’t be “fixed” by a “nerf”.


#21

Seems suspension I see. :grin:

But I do agree, that these changes to Genji is not really a nerf honestly. I am being targeted with toxicity because I spoke my opinion/ feedback. :sweat_smile:


#22

genji’s deflect change is factually a nerf, even if he wasn’t intended to be nerfed in ptr

a bugfix can end up being a nerf as an unintended consequence


#23

Thanks you for doing that for me, I was caught up replying to some of the individuals on this thread. :grin: seems like they hate me.


#25

Thank you.

Glad that Junkrat has been nerfed slightly. Ever since I started playing I thought that guy was an overpowered killing machine…


#26

Again, like I told a user from before… think of it however you want.

I think it is a fix more than anything.


#27

I guess I have a different way of viewing thing I supposed.


#28

You are not alone in that. I think that every hero change in this patch can be directed traced back to forum balance threads. It’s a very community feedback PTR patch.


#29

I brought that up because quite funnily, the community sees the Doomfist Rocketpunch hitbox decrease and recent increase as buffs, and the Genji deflect hitbox reduction as a fix. Blizzard however writes them in the patchnotes as the opposite.


#30

Your delusion is hilarious.


#31

Thanks :kissing_heart: Now enjoy your day man.


#32

Tracer main here, I’m ok with it due to pulse bombs low charge rate.


#33

Oh blizzard :wink:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


#34

Hey ZodiHD do you think these changes to Tracer is going to affect her overall role as an Offense hero?
