    This is a fun meta

    Impactful dps, no real killer combos that teams are required to build around, double barrier is now fragile enough to still keep things dynamic, and still a respectable amount of off meta stuff and dive comps

    Great weekend of matches. Plenty of stinkers but the good ones were REAL good.

    LAV/FLA on Rialto was one of the best maps I've seen in some time. Too bad that Echo, Brig, D.va, and Sombra are back in next week cause that "meta" was pretty dang fun.

    Brigitte

    No longer grants an additional armor health pool when healing full health targets
    Barrier Shield

    Maximum health increased from 200 to 250
    Regeneration rate decreased from 100 to 85 health per second
    Cooldown when destroyed increased from 3 to 5 seconds

    D.Va

    Fusion Cannons

    Movement penalty reduced from 50 to 40%
    Defense Matrix

    Cooldown reduced from 1.5 to 1 second

    That Brig overheal nerf is pretty massive. What if instead, it just replaced HP with armor instead of adding it on top? Get the benefits of armor without totally needing the ability.

  • DragkoniasDragkonias Registered User regular
    I really don't mind the overheal removal.

    It was cool but tbh its short duration meant it was only really useful when cheesed. And she still has it in Rally.

    Also...funny thing about the Genji buff. I think it only made him decent as an individual character.

    But Genji hasn't been meta in so long I think people forgot how terrifying nanoblade is.

  • SixshotStrikerSixshotStriker Registered User regular
    As someone who has died to multiple nanoblades in the past week alone, I'm going to say no to that. People have not forgotten how terrifying it is.

    I would blame account selling but I don't even know that is a thing anymore Anyways this is a great example of the lack of teamwork I deal with in games

    My concern was that all five of the shattered players were in a straight line and E was not pressed. Think of the cool factor!

    The D.Va buffs seen unnecessary

    Over the last month she's got the worst tank pick rate from Plat to GM and the worst tank win rate from Diamond to GM (second worst in Plat)

    She doesn't have a win rate over 50% in any rank other than GM, and it's barely over it there.

    She was doing well in OWL when she wasn't banned (though I suspect double shield will be the meta even without pools this weekend), but if you're not running a 6 stack that you've scrimmed for 60 hours a week she's kinda trash right now.

    I can't even play her in QP without getting asked/yelled at to switch at the moment.

    The buffs don't help anyway, Sigma still Rocks her at will and shrunken 10 metre DM means that a second barrier is better 100% of the time.

    D.Va problem is that Sigma does like 80% of what she wants to do but better.

    Buffing DM and her lethality to accentuate her role as a highly mobile dive tank is probably best.

  • AshcroftAshcroft LOL The PayloadRegistered User regular
    I really think she needs 15 metre DM and her armor back, plus Rock needs to be eatable.

    If they did that and toned down the level of poke damage in the game, a second shield might go from 'always better' to 'sometimes better'.

    The interesting part with both Genji and Tracer getting a lot of play is what happens if Brig gets nerfed

    She's still OK as anti-dive, but she's even better at enabling dive thanks to her overheal.

    So will removing the overheal and making Brig worse end up nerfing the dive heroes, or will it balance out with them not having to deal with Brig healing their dive targets?

  • BionicPenguinBionicPenguin Registered User regular
    Tracer was still being used without Brig. I think dive comps will be slightly worse, but should still be viable if the team's good enough at it.

    Well, 'Operation Make Genji Meta Even if It Makes Him Massively Overpowered' has been a great, "success".

    I was never a big proponent of the theory that OWL harms the ladder game, but it's pretty obvious that the Genji buffs were solely because he's fun to watch and nothing to do with balance. He wasn't great before this but he was stilll better than like half the DPS roster. Now he's just bonkers.
