So I’m a low gold player on all roles at this point. I understand that bastion is not as viable in higher ranks but in my case Bastion is the most annoying hero out of any other to play against. And of course I hate it when I’m up against a really good Mei and whatever I do I find myself frozen and dead or a Doomfist that appears out of no-where to one shot me and then instantly get out of there. But those situations don’t come even close to being up against a Bastion double-shield comp.
You’re pretty much always in cover and if you go out of cover for 2 seconds to output some damage you’re already at half health. Your shields break instantly, if you’re a bit overextended you get punished instantly. All that value from someone that sits behind shields and is left-clicking while the whole enemy team is protecting him. He’s basically the easy way to win a hard match-up or just to win the game without doing much honestly. It always feels cheap losing to Bastion comps.
Also I know that Bastion is weak in higher ranks and his kit is really boring. In lower ranks he’s too rewarding for the braindead gameplay he brings to the table.
I think he seriously needs a rework. One that will make him more viable for higher ranks and less oppressive for lower ranks. I honestly can’t stand Bastion in this game.
