I’m not just imagining that he literally said increase in healing power has happened, but 4 healers have been nerfed in terms of healing per second by a fair amount. Main healers too.
Meanwhile we have Hanzo who since rework has been doing 4k more damage on average (from 12k dmg to 16k dmg) and we have main tank (one with a barrier) that does over twice the amount of damage as Reinhardt, the OG main tank.
And finally we have soldier who’s in a far better state ability wise than during season 3 after which he was nerfed for being too powerful, but who’s now not picked almost at all in GM for being too weak. Screw winrates, people don’t pick overall weak heroes. And genji who used to be a strong hero feared across all ranks but who’s nowdays just a bladebot.
If they want this game to survive, they’re gonna have to start sounding like they know what they’re talking about. Because they got Overwatch 2 and they need an actual playerbase for that and not just a dumpster fire they left behind.
I’d love for this game to be good. But gutting heroes left and right for no reason only to give them joke buffs half a year later or worse, leaving them down to rot and pretending everything in this game isn’t on fire isn’t helping this game become good or making the sequel sound enticing.
