When is the Sigma nerf?


#1

This character is an absolute joke in comp, having an absorb that eats just about anything (goodbye DVA) and an ult that does way too much damage given its easy setup.

Title says it all, what are they planning to do about this?


#2

I think he needs a buff but there is a nerf on the PTR right now.


#3

??

PTR patch notes don’t exist for today’s patch, do you have a source?


#4

Sigma

Hyper Spheres

  • Explosion damaged reduced from 35 to 30

Experimental Barrier

  • Added a toggle option for deploying Sigma’s Experimental Barrier

#5

They don’t need to do anything about it because he’s not in need of a nerf.

He’s not as unstoppable as you seem to think. He’s easily countered by Zarya, Symmetra, Mei, even Rein.

His absorb only eats projectiles and only those in front of him.

And his ult is easily survivable thanks to the likes of Zarya, Baptiste, Lucio, and Ana.

He’s fine the way he is. We don’t need another Brigitte-like travesty on our hands.


#6

You forgot 2 more items - one a slight buff and another slight nerf:

Accretion

  • Explosion damage increased from 50 to 60

Gravitic Flux

  • Intro cast time increased from 0.4 seconds to 0.6

oh that, I thought you were talking about a nerf that came with today’s patch.
Thanks tho.


#8

FOTM balancing. working as intended. :confused:

Comparing Kinetic Grasp to DM tells me you have no idea how the ability works. Sure they both can absorb hits, but they have totally different applications.
