Stealth nerf via bug fix

Honestly, I think this is a good change. But I think people should be aware there is an additional nerf to Brigitte in the form of a bug fix with patch 1.24. This is the kind of change that could easily fly under the radar.

Meanwhile, Reinhardt cries in a corner :frowning:

But nice find! I think this patch will be really good for her, and after this she won’t need anymore tweaking.

It’s not a nerf if it was never intended to be wider than her shield (which was described as the original “nerf” meaning they never intended it to be larger than her shield.)

They already said they were gonna nerf the Shield Bash hitbox

This is the nerf they were talking about

No, they nerfed that in the previous patch. They reduced the cone of it on May 3rd. This is different.

Actually, she did already have a real nerf to her hitbox in the last major patch. I think it was two weeks ago? But this one apparently is a bug fix, so I guess one was a real nerf and this one was an adjustment/fix?

Here it is

EDIT: Lumin beat me to it :stuck_out_tongue: and they have level 3! Foiled again!

I do think this patch should put to rest the Brigitte problem. I think she’ll be balanced after this personally.

Now it’s just a case of making sure the team stays with her so she can heal them

Yeah, I guess that’s what I am saying. She was definitely overtuned, but her design was very nice and worked. This patch was a step in the right direction for her.
