New Experimental Card – June 23

And the nerf is significantly worse than the buff. So her barrier was not buffed. It’s a second straight nerf.

Hey Molly Fender! I was wondering If you could take a look at this team built rework for Brigitte! If there’s someway you could send them over to the Blizzard balance team that would be great!

I have 100 more SR than you in every role and peaked 3112 on Open Queue.

okay so?? does that make you better? I don’t play this game cause I wanna get T500, I just play it cause its different then CSGO or any other shooter that’s what I like about OW. but I’m happy for you that your SR is higher congrats!

But why should a hero that takes less skill give you so much more value? The devs are balancing the game now to make it that you get more value from you mastering a hard hero (Ana, Zen, Lucio) than if you just exist on an easy hero (Brigitte and Moira).

where do I even start, first of all, ana, zen and Lucio are not much harder than brig and Moira, and in fact, they have more impact on the game,

ana: anti nade, nano boost
zen: discord orb, trans.
Lucio, sound barrier, boop.

what does brig have? shield? noo… armor? don’t think so gone in a second, her inspire? bastion has better self-healing, her ult? that doesn’t save you from anything in a grave or nana-blade or Hanzo ult (in fact zen his ult does more) so that means that zen and Lucio have more value overall.

How can you say that as a Mercy one trick? When everyone is inside of Rally, it is so hard to focus a single target down because they have up to 150 extra health with damage reduction You’ve clearly never tried to fight a 300 health Tracer in your backline before.

lol, one-trick mercy? no… I play every healer from zen to ana to brig. just not as much as mercy cause I love mercy just because of who she is and what she does.

brig her ult doesn’t give you 150 armor, 100 armor (nerfed it a while back) and if you think I’m a (mercy one-trick) then you should know that tracer loves to kill mercy, ana zen in the backline so I know how that feels and I don’t mind just talk to your teammates. BREAKING NEWS you are not alone in a match!

okay yeah, 7 swings? so tell me when are you alone in a comp match? lol, you are not the only one!

its called an ult for a reason so no joke that she is not killable with an ability lol weird of you to think that a ability needs to be better than an ult. funny :slight_smile:

yeah funny, but he when can laugh about it right?

it’s always funny when your rein goes into the enemy team and dies and then calls his healer’s trash cause he died from his mistake… no thanks.

All changes help balance the game a lot. Thank you.

It’s an Ult. There are multiple Supports that won’t die if you pin them during it. (Brigitte, Lucio, Zenyatta), one whose Ults makes pinning them pretty much impossible (Valkyrie) and one cooldown that makes it literally impossible to kill not just the support but their entire team (Baptiste).

Value in what way? After GOATS died, Brigitte only recently found her niche (giving armor to flankers). That is the only value that she has provided that made her worth playing at a high level.

this is a good idea and a step in the good direction, thanks for sharing your ideas! let’s hope they give this a shot.

I’m a 4500 DVA main. I really dislike the missile change.

It messes with years of muscle memory without giving much benefit.

I really like the other 2 changes.

I hope it comes with the talent system. Making it a micro transaction would be awful.

Very similar to my rework. I genuinely would like to see this kid of change tested.

Competitive mode is now divided…I don’t know whether it will bring more queue time or not…I will suggest RoleLock is the best option…after getting game players can select among 2 or 3 characters of each role…in that way it will be open q and also 222 or 312 or whatever the meta is but will not be 6 DPS together

Brigitte was specifically conceptualized and presented as an “armor-based support”. Torbjorn is an engineer, which has a little more conceptual flexibility around whether that involves granting armor to other players. (Torb himself still has armor as a thing, since he gets a lot during Overload, and he and Brig are the only non-tanks with intrinsic armor.) I think that armor, and specifically granting armor, is much more of a defining characteristic of Brigitte than it ever was of Torbjorn. Her base color palette even has that golden-yellow armor color as her primary color. I would be very surprised if they removed her armoring abilities completely, just as I would be very surprised if they completely removed Mercy’s Resurrect or Sym’s teleporter.
