Because you’re reading into it.
I said that she’s fine where she is, meaning she doesn’t need more changes, reverts, buffs or changes. In fact, she could be ignored entirely and it wouldn’t affect the people I know who play her. They have fun with her, find it a challenge to learn a new way of playing her so her gameplay doesn’t get stale.
What seems to be happening is that, they made a change for Symmetra, but the focus is instead of how for 8 months they neglected to correct what the damage output for Symmetra was. That screams entitlement to me, and that any change they make (whether a nerf/buff, indirect or not) is never going to make any of the Symmetra players happy. They are just going to gripe all the time about every change, or say it was the wrong one.
I’m a McCree main, and while I thought the FtH change was unnecessary, I thought about how the squishies suffer and the tanks will suffer more under it. They made him temporarily viable to sustain against heroes who would wreck him nonstop, and gave him at least a bit of a chance. It isn’t my fault people got used to playing him as McRightClick and now have to learn to actually aim.
The Deadeye buff was a good compensation for me to the nerf for FtH when he was just getting good.
And again, these are in my games, at my rank (I play on PS4 and PC, but I don’t like sharing my profile since I tend to play with friends and like to have fun). In even gold Symmetra 2.0 was doing some serious damage, and people mostly play in that rank anyway.
if you read what I actually said, I mentioned numbers or mechanics. It was not specific to Symmetra’s damage numbers. It was overall, they don’t tell you everything because they don’t want you gaming the system. Same reason they don’t reveal the full stats regarding MMR and SR and how they work; what kinds of stats they look for below Diamond to determine how much SR you gain/lose. There are plenty of things they don’t want us doing because it games the system, and it’s not fun for people who are honest and don’t.
Also, who gaf if they made a mistake in the numbers? Who gaf if they aren’t on here everyday reading every single Symmetra thread? You know they only have a finite amount of time in a day, families and kids, and other shiz to do with their lives? Hell, I’m surprised they even see the feedback on Youtube, which is where most of the thoughts are well laid out (because recording a video) and heard.
