Symmetra is still in the game. Saying she was deleted is hyperbolic.
Please no. Things like Infinite shield generator and easy auto lock-on were removed from Symmetra for a reason. Making another hero with these attributes would literally be taking steps backwards after moving forwards.
It would be like creating another hero with mass resurrection. Why?
But it wasn’t always part of her kit, are you claiming Symmetra’s been removed from the game twice?
You mean it’s okay if you want to make spurious comparisons in an effort to make a hyperbolic statement look reasonable
I’ve played since day 1. I remember Symmetra when she gave everyone 25 shields, so don’t come at me saying I’ve never played the old Symmetra; I played the first one
I do understand. You are making a hyperbolic statement and backing it up with spurious comparisons and, when called out on this, you resort to simply claiming the other person doesn’t understand instead of combating their points.
Honestly? It’s a little sloppy. This strategy may work on others, but it won’t work on me
I’d have reworked Sym into a tank hero by proxy. Meaning, give her the projectile barrier back, though give her the ability to toggle its movement on and off. That way she could hang out in the back, laying down turrets and whatnot whilst also providing a main tank barrier in the choke.
This would appeal to non traditional tank players and frankly tank is the least enjoyable role for most people, so anything that helps fix that would be great.
I agree with Sine here. PB was NEVER her core kit. I’d say that about Teleporter, as it really is her iconic ability. I loved Sym 2.0, but my god was she a mess. The kit just didn’t work out because of how she could go from OP(lower ranks) to hot garbage.
Look, we get it. Not everyone wanted a rework. There is absolutely NO WAY she would remain like this. You should blame OWL tbh, as Sym would be at her 2.0 state because in OWL she was NEVER played in S1. You don’t enjoy her? Fine. Some of us do enjoy this version.
If you only played Sym for the shield, then you are NOT a true Sym main. You played her because you enjoyed her playstyle, not because you liked throwing shields. She was not removed, and she is in better shape than 2.0, and stats prove it.
