The new changes to Symmetra basically kill the playstyle I fell in love with:
- Close-range microwave lock-on
- Hallway-control alt fire
- Frag-damage up-close alt fire
- Making area-controlling nests of turrets
- Clutch mini-Rein photon barrier
They took away all these things or changed them so much that she’s now a completely different hero. Completely different playstyle. Leaves me very sad.
Does anybody have an explanation for why Blizzard made such a massive overhaul to her? I’ve seen the “Symmetra Rework” thread by Geoff Goodman that lays out what the changes are, but it doesn’t really answer why the changes were made.
All I want is an explanation for why this happened.
