So.... what's the next experiment card?

Since the patch went live today, what is the next set of changes? Maybe they’re looking at reworking Orisa/Sig to be stronger individually but not have overwhelming synergy? Maybe they listened about the Bastion suggestions? Maybe looking into reducing the overall power level of the game?

I hope we see Bastion changes, but at this point I’ve almost given up honestly.

If we don’t see any changes for Bastion next then I will just have to accept Bastion will be useless until OW2. He will be quite good in some PvE missions I guess so that’s something to look forward to.


I’m hoping for UI changes that look at tanking/supporting and aim to reward them more appropriately.

And of course, Valkyrie changes with skill and the Mercy player’s impact in mind, but I’m more likely to go on a double date with Helen of Troy and Cleopatra before that happens.


I personally really hope they look into bap and mercy. I’m doubtful tho


One can only hope…

Things like this will not likely appear in the experimental card but instead would go to the PTR.
