What if instead, Brigitte’s shield bash is replaced with a body slam attack that functions every bit the same as shield bash.
That way she will have to drop the shield first to do the stun attack.
What this change does
Opens up room for counter play.
When Brigitte drops the shield, you know she can stun you, but if you are brigitte player, you don’t necessarily have to go for that attack. Against Tracer that means she might blink when she sees you drop the shield, but you can just put up the shield again. This will make it a skill match up based on prediction, mind game and reaction.
Gives Brigitte a bit of vulnerability and risk to using her stun
Needless to say one of the reasons shield bash is very powerful yet so hard to play against is because Brigitte is pretty much safe behind her shield against just about everything. Body slam will require her to drop her shield and risk her safety for a powerful attack.
