I still really like the game but I want all the Asian characters nerfed. DVA, Genji, Hanzo all annoy the hell out of me and naturally they all have high pick rates…
In League of Legends all of the humanoid Asian champs were always high damage, very mobile assassin characters (Ahri, Yasuo, Zed, Akali, Irelia, Yi, Lee sin, Jax just to name a few) and they were ALWAYS slow to change the characters, but monster, creature raced champs were changed very fast.
It seems that positive Asian stereotypes (smart, mobile, playmakers) has made its way to this game too.
Dva is a tank that can theoretically blow up an entire team, and she’s mobile, Genji is annoying as hell and everyone knows what he can do. Hanzo’s arrow will literally send your body flying if he smacks you in the head.
Europeon type knights? One is a tank, one is A healer.
What Overwatch could do is spice up the game archetype and stop bending over to the same old superficial racial stereotypes.
Like look at our two black characters. One is a big muscled black guy and one has an obsession with music that he’s made it into a weapon… just offensive honestly…
Where is the slim, anatomically correct black guy/girl ninja type character that has a high skill cap and situationally unavoidable 1-2 hit abilities?
