As many of us here have noticed after this latest patch Reinhardt feels a bit…well…different. And by different, I mean much worse.
I think I speak collectively for all Reinhardt-mains when I say that we would really appreciate some kind of official response about this. I’m not even asking for a detailed response, just something like a “we are aware”, or “this is intentional”, or “wow, that’s news to us, we’ll look more into it”, or “haha, tough luck, home slice.”
Anything at this point.
It would mean the world to us to have an official answer/update on the current state of our beloved giant, German man.
For those out of the loop:
It also appears that Reddit users are also noticing the differences
And it looks like it’s not just animation cancelation issues, but some animation start-up delays as well. Additionally, Earthshatter has also been further affected:
Additional bugs affecting barrier/hero interactions:
So what’s going on? The lion on his shield gets fixed and somehow we’re magically smacked with these HUGE differences? That’s why we’re asking for some clarification, or at least acknowledgement. If it’s intentional, ok! At least now we know and we can move on. We’re used to having to adapt.
WARNING EXTREME TRIGGERING MAY OCCUR
So, not only do these bugs affect the Reinhardt players, but others as well. Look at that poor Hanzo getting phantom smashed by a Charge through a wall. Hey, guess what, everyone! We want our stuff to work, too! We’re not exactly having a blast over here.
In no way am I trying to impede on anyone else’s posts regarding struggles with heroes, such as Sombra or Bastion. I know Reinhardt topics are touchy since the meta is currently favoring him. We’re not asking for buffs, we just want our kit to work, and we also would greatly appreciate some sort of response.
Thanks to everyone who read this far. Stay positive out there, and remember, we are your shield!

Also, let’s not forget the other problems that still persist:
