:Fish: Which do you think is Hero 30 - Tank Or Support? (Non healing Support?)


#53

I hope it’s a support.
looking from a different point of view, I want a tank because it will be easier to charge my crap beam as symmetra :slight_smile:


#54

Well, people will get angry when the new hero is shown.
Can’t make everyone happy.


#55

I would love sanjay as a shielding support. Just channeled and decaying, stacking shields like doomfists passive/lucios ultimate.

Would also think a support that can throw zarya shields on enemies would be a super fun, balanced alternative to anti-heal, and great counter for goats.


#56

Im pretty sure they said the next hero is tank


#57

Where did they say that?

Jeff did say they know people want a shield tank much like Rein and Orisa, but it was never confirmed.
I hope it is one, though.


#58

Almost certain tank, since I think Echo will be the Support.


#59

A non healing support would be interesting but then they would have to have some major utility that helps the team. So many people complained about symm being a support with no healing abilities and only have TP/Shield Gen, and even before shield Gen, her little shield ability that worked on a hero once per life.

However, making a non healing support would also conflict as people generally want 2 healers, and but having one of those support spots taken by a support that doesnt actually heal, people will complain and consider then as DPS.

I think support needs to heal in some capacity. However for hero 30, I want a new main tank. Main tanks are slim and we havent gotten one since Orisa and so many people call her trash (not me, I love her).

But im down for both. But the support needs to heal, even if its not “main healer” type of heals


#60

Just chiming in to say that when Echo does get released, I want her to be a DPS. I feel like the graceful, feminine, calm healer with a white color palette has already been done with Mercy, and I would be a bit disappointed to see that trope done over again.

I could easily see Echo having some kind of energy or psionic weaponry that allows her to placidly wreck house without a lot of visible gun-like structures built into her.


#61

I hope it will be another dps since they barely have anyone to choose from.


#62

totem support maybe?


#63

I wont give up echo to the dark side.
You guys can make Mercy a DPS instead.
Although it’d be interesting to have a small tank.


#64

Hopefully a hero that functions as a better check for long ranged damage, more sniper counters in the game would be nice :slight_smile:


#65

might as well leave this here: 🗿 THE AMAZING TALON HERO 30 CONCEPT: LEONORA (The Video)

again taking the week off, well only be posting any news that comes up that I think is important.


#66

Jetpack-cat is a support i guess?


#67

Cat pictures and videos warm our hearts in real life.

Maybe jetpack cat is the answer to toxicity? A true non healing support? Improves morale?


#68

Who knows… Who knows


#69

Hammond is also a main tank


#70

Echo is going to be hero 31 and her design screams support to me. So I’m gonna have to lean towards hero 30 being a tank though I could be wrong. Anyways, I want to see a Talon tank so that we can finally make a full Talon comp.


#71

Well there is style where he can be seen as Main tank but it is rather hard to pull off on ladder. Mostly he is played as off.


#72

I also dont agree with this for me he is more an off tank but gm players and pro know better.
