Depends on how the Sombra rework goes. Sombra is a go to counter against widow for many. Her low risk engagement due to translocator can kinda keep widow’s low risk positioning in check. But the devs said this in the coming Sombra rework:
Finally, we’re looking forward to revealing our plans for our upcoming reworks. Sombra’s changes will be coming at the start of Season 7. Here are some of our stated goals heading into her rework:
- Make Sombra more committal when engaging
- Increase the active feel throughout her kit
- Uphold her current hacker identity and playstyle
Part of what makes Sombra a decent counter to widow is that she doesn’t have to hard commit to killing her. Even if you don’t kill the widow you can very easily harass with very little downtime. Simply hacking and distracting her so she doesn’t have free resign to do whatever she wants can be beneficial.
But if this is not the case? Then Widow will have a lot less pressure in a game where the peel for her is already insane. I agree with their goals in this Sombra rework but if they’re going this route they also need to seriously change widow. Because if this rework fails then one shots will be even more prevalent than they already are which is scary.
