Questions on Zarya Changes


#1

I have a few questions. Does her beam animation change if she has high charge? Does it still grow in appearance?

Also, could this be a net buff for her? Or is this a net nerf?


#2

The beam will probably just be moderately thick all the time instead of really thick when she is high charge and not as thick when she’s low charge.


#3

They directly state it


#4

That’s unfortunate because having a high charged beam feels so satisfying to use. It would be nice if the beam got more vibrant the more charge you have. Idk.


#5

nope it will be the same thickness no matter the charge

everything in total is a nerf


#6

yes and yes

Neither? Its the animation, so it has no effect, the real changes are the tick rate and MY GOD.
OH ITS LIKE BUTTER BROWNED AND BASTED ON A BURGER.

Edit: OH MY GOD WAHT HAVE THEY DONE???


#7

To be fair, it does leave a bit of ambiguity as to whether or not the beam’s actual hitbox changes or if it’s just the beam’s appearance.


#8

Does she still have the same animation where her beam appears thin at low energy but thicker at high energy, though the actual hurtbox remains at .15 the whole time is what they’re asking (I think…). If not, I would like to ask this question cos I’m curious.
