My count thus far is 3 successful escapes from 28 tries. And on those 3 escapes, two of them I escaped alone while my team died before being able to escape.
TP have a 2 second casting time, and graviton keeps everyone in place for 4 seconds. Most grav combos will kill your team before TP is ready to be used.
So, I’d love to be proved that I’m being terrible at adapting to her new kit, and that it’s perfectly viable to use TP to save your team from a Graviton combo. Can we gather more feedback from Symmetra players about using TP to rescue a teammate (or the team) from the thick of the fight, or from any kind of slow/root.
Yeah, I’d say about 2 out of 10 times, I can get it deployed and clicked quick enough to escape a barrage/dragon combo. I’m more successful with the latter than the former though, Pharah can always adjust where she’s shooting, and when she sees the teleporter has the option of barraging that point.
Saying that it can teleport a whole team in response to it being something that can be destroyed is not really a counter argument.
You said that the cooldown is fine because it’s ‘only two seconds’.
The cooldown is ‘only two seconds’ if your TP doesn’t get killed - which, it OFTEN does, because guess what, it’s easy to spot, and easy to destroy. Especially with the 2 second casting time where everyone can see you putting it up.
So the cooldown is not ‘only two seconds’ a majority of the time, it’s actually got several seconds where I can’t use it frequently due to having tried to use it to help a team mate escape and it getting killed instantly.
This whole ‘it’s fine!’ response to people having legit complaints is silly.
Literally almost impossible to do. You need lightning reaction time + teleporter setup time is way to long. It’s just false advertisement - the same false advertisement that said her range is way longer and the beam is way thicker.
You can just read when zarya is approaching you to grav and put it down before she does. An ability can be used in anticipation not just in reaction such as a zenyatta trancing before a sombra emps and an zarya blocking a rein shatter with her self bubble
