At this point, why even keep Brig and armor together?
The dev team really seems to be against the armorhealing. Fine, it doesn’t cause any more issues than any other support using their abilities, but we’ll sit here and pretend Brig’s armor is the one and only problem in this game, the one that obviously demands the dev’s repeated attentions, and that there’s no other problems in this game that haven’t been addressed in months or years.
Honestly if this is bugging the dev team this much that they’ll leave the rest of the game rot just to focus on over-armor, then just remove it completely and give Brig some other utility. There’s probably a lot of things this game needs, and you can re-shape her to whatever whim you have. Find a role for her to fill, and fill it. But removing Brig’s over-armor shouldn’t be done unless you’re ready and willing to strip a lot of support abilities across the board (yay a nerf Moira is immune to!). You can’t just focus on Brig and pretend that hers and hers alone causes a change in gameplay strategy or helps teammates push the envelope.
Seriously. Just give her something else at this point. Take away her armor identity and give her something new. Just stripping her abilities away and leaving her isn’t an answer.
