People are going so far away from the truth, almost everyone is just grabbing their favourite hero and trying to find a way to make them into a support or tank since that is the most likely options for hero 30. Junker Queen would NEVER become a support, she is an axe swinging maniac for crying out loud, she is and only is a DPS or a Tank. The robots you see in the map are tachy and terrible especially for a Queen? Surely a Queen would have something better. Personally she would be a DPS, i have never seen her in a mech. I’ve only seen her use her hold weapons, indicating to me she doesn’t need a tank. Her bruit strength is enough to overcome it. We have also not long had another Hero from Junker Town, Hammond, plus we have two others who are Junkrat and Roadhog. This to me just shows the likeliness of us getting ANOTHER hero from Junker Town is slim.
People are doing the same with Max, a tank? really? He is a skinny robot like Zen. Him being a tank is very unlikely, personally i couldn’t see him being a hero at all. He is someone who comes across as not getting his hands dirty, he would much rather pay someone to do it for him. As for him being a support, well no we have Zen and having the two could confuse some people. He Doesn’t come across as a support from looking over at him. If anything he would be a DPS but again i doubt he would even become a hero.
I for one think that most likely candidates for Hero 30 would be Echo or Sanjay. The reason why i say Echo is because in the speech when Jeff announced Ashe he said they were designing Echo but didn’t release her because they were fond of Ashe so they postponed Echo to design Ashe. Now since Echo was already near compliant wouldn’t it be more wise to then finish her and release her just after. People speculated she would be a tank, i mean really? No. She has that support vibe about her and doesn’t look tanky at all. Hero 30 will also not be that mysterious face that appeared on Anubis, the face has been their since beta.
As for Sanjay i personally recon he would be a tank with support utility. I recon sanjay would have a good chance because he is that link between his world and Lucio’s. He could potentially use something similar to Symmetra’s old shield gen as a support utility, but who knows. Hero 30 will be either Echo, Sanjay or some other hero we have not seen of yet.
