And why would 500k open profiles they gain data for overbuff be somehow vastly inaccurate?
Genji is so overbuffed he’s top used dps on overwatch league now when he used to be one of the least used dps and even pros are complaining about him now.
There’s no question about it whether Genji has better stats or not. You don’t get more blade spam unless you’re doing vastly more damage and you don’t get all these players suddenly playing genji and going from 4.2k to 4.5k if he’s not really good.
So he’s literally silver player in masters because genji is now so broken that you barely need game sense or mechanics. So we got like OG Brigitte and Moth mercy boost syndrome on genji too.
I did see on stream that this top 500 genji who hasn’t reached top 500 before play against ML7 with little more than plat game sense too.
I know for a fact that Necros one account which has never been higher than 4.2k before one tricking Genji immediately reached 4.5k after the genji buffs. 300 SR in top 500 is a LOT and it’s the difference between random GM player and pro players and players like ML7 who frequently place 1# on the ladder.
I need to check top 500 leaderboards, it’s probably 70% full of Genji and rest are ashe, mccree, tracer, widow and others.
