Genji Deflect Issue

I bring up your stats because someone who is winning 4/5 matches with him has no reason to believe hes fine. Didnt know your were a smurf at the time.

His GM stats are broken, you can see that all over the forums, it gets discussed in multiple threads.

Yeah so basically the fact that I am doing good with Genji proves that he was OP even before the buff? No it doesn’t. He was a nano-bot before the buff and couldn’t kill much of his targets, this buff only changes that and allows him to actually be lethal without waiting for Nano-blade to actually do something.

Also, US OW Forums are extremely biased and are terrible, I just come here to lose a couple of braincells everyday, remember about that girl called Aria Rose? And don’t ignore what I said about Overbuff.

The time frame doesnt matter if stats blow up like that. When Sombra got buffed, she didnt have half the increase Genji got and she got a hotfix nerf. Same with Bastion when they gave him 35% Ironclad.

Genji also retroactively deflects things that hit him on your screen, but not theirs. :cowboy_hat_face:

And me waiting for

so much curious .__.

Mean while Genji mains have been waiting for over 2 years deflect hitbox bug, not to mention the hit reg bug and wall climb bug that plagued Genji since antiquity.

How will you ever live through a day without that victim mentality?

Genji should also have a short delay after the end of deflect before he can throw shuriken again, deflect is already a very powerful ability, and the fact the he essentially gains peeker’s advantage due to ping at the end of deflect or whenever he cancels it is incredibly frustrating to play against. Just make it unaffected if he chooses to cancel it via dash cause he’s using multiple abilities, and the dash combo takes time/ skill to master…

The biggest of brain plays.


what about Ana’s sleep? The sound clip lasts longer than the sleep, so it’s harder to know when the slept player is going to wake up.

I am happy this is going to get fixed ( i hope ) but i am kind of mad that my forum that i made about this did not get any report back to.

The fact that I’m a genji main smurf but have 2x the damage and more elims per 10 on ashe even after genji buff just proves genji still isn’t OP. He’s still one of the easiest characters in the game to counter. Winston, moira, brig, zen, lucio, zarya, a good rein all shut him down with ease. Cree can easily counter him with decent aim and timing. Sombra makes him a literal potato. Genji has been bad for 3 years, finally gets a buff that doesn’t even make him as oppressive as a good ashe, widow, hanzo, nowhere near as oppressive as doomfist or echo, and everybody loses their minds. L. M. F. A. O.

Not to mention the dash hitbox where you can shoot anywhere in the line of the dash and hit him because dash hitbox is the size of a semi truck.

Zen a genji counter. Are you serious about this ?

eh, kinda.
Genji counters Zenyatta in the mid-fight with his high mobility and “reliable” (easy) damage against an immobile, large hitbox, no escape/defense hero
Zenyatta counters Genji in the ult-fight through trans vs. dragonblade (but this interaction has been busted since Genji gets his ult faster with his extra damage, when they used to both get it at around the same time)
So, yeah. Zen does counter Genji, but Genji counters him too

Nanoblade kills through transc. Also, blade is gotten much faster now since the buffs. He literally does more damage, and he does it more reliably than ever, so it’s obvious why he gets blade faster.

yes, but I was meaning them just by themselves. Of course, nanoblade can kill through trans, that is two ults against one ult (and is impossible if the genji messes up dash combo). Ana is also just a trans counter to begin with, her nade and nano make it quite easy to kill through trans (more so with nade because that was made to counter trans).

I’m tired of this nonsensical argument. Grav dragon is two ults and it can’t kill through transcendance. Any actual legit argument?

Ok, legit argument:

  • Transcendence is an ultimate that counters damage Over Time.
  • Two ultimates that both use DoT would, obviously, be countered by transcendence.
  • Nano-blade does high burst damage that can kill through an ultimate that doesn’t protect against burst damage. This is also why snipers and Doomfist can kill through trans.
  • IIRC Nano-blade can still be useless against trans if the Genji messes up his dash combo.

So there you go, legit argument.

Damage over time generally sucks anyway and can be reacted to and healed regularly, so is it really countering anything? Compare it to Beat and Beat just dominates it in almost every regard. Transcendance is niche in comparison. Transcendance is much more applicable in a scenario where you can have more than two tanks and where 250+ HP DPS characters are viable, but none of this applies anymore. Role queue doesn’t allow more than 2 tanks, Reaper sucks, Mei is meh bordering on suck, Doomfist is meh, Bastion is trash. Grav+Dragon is not a common threat anymore. Anyone who thinks Transcendance is game-changing right now doesn’t think very much about how it interacts with the game in its current state. :woman_shrugging:
