If you haven’t gotten onto the PTR yet I suggest trying out Symmetra, Zarya, and Moira (haven’t tried mei yet). The beam “bug fix” have significantly buffed these heroes damage. Symmetra and Zarya MELT people. It’s nice to see Symmetra be able to compete with the other DPS heroes now. She is no longer a joke on the PTR, and is very deadly if you get into her space. Moira can kill squishies even more easily now with her long beam and I think the changes reinforce DPS Moira playstyle (not saying that’s a bad thing). I’m however am extremely worried about how the changes affect Zarya because as a 400hp tank with barriers she can instantly delete people BEFORE she’s even fully charge. That’s absolutely insane. A dev mentioned keeping an eye on these heroes in particular and I can see why.
Personally I think sym is fine as she’s a DPS and is supposed to do damage. Zarya I can see getting some damage number nerfs.
Everyone’s so preoccupied with Sigma right now but I want to know what you all think about these beam changes? If you haven’t tried it yet you should, the changes feel really good.
