    Sojourn is still good, Doomfist is OP, and Ramattra sucks. Welcome to Season 2 🎉🙌

      @Apotheosis No, he's not op. Sojourn is still broken though.

    • Rose Bud

      Sojourn one taps with a Mercy pocket she already had in the first place, Doomfist is Godfist now, and the new tank Ramattra is fun but bad. Season 2 everyone!

    • Cold Sand Gamer

      True Ramattra is one of the worse tanks in the game and I want the shield have more duration and only 6 second in his nemesis form only the cooldown

      Junkerqueen is arguably worse, Soujourn is fantastic if you can pocket her. Doomfist is a bad thing for mid tier comp and below because now everyone locks him in and is either great or god awful there Is no middle ground.

    The biggest thing here for me is honestly Kiriko being able to buffer her shift now. It sounds like a little thing but to me its huge.

    • EtanB22
      EtanB22 Місяць тому

      @nidbahn once again they’re not fully necessary especially when you’re just trying to teleport somewhere cuz I play on console with pc ppl a lot and that literally disables your aim assist and I still do fine so u just have really bad natural aim

    • nidbahn
      nidbahn Місяць тому +1

      @EtanB22 yeah i didn't pay attention to which comment you were replying to. also i disagree with you, playing first person shooters on a gamepad is like being handicapped anyway so things like aim assist are necessary

    • Small Might
      Small Might Місяць тому +3

      Everything everyone else said + Tank dies, you know the friendly Widow is behind you shooting but you're not 100% sure where. You swing the camera, buffering it, so you don't waste even a quarter of a second registering where she is before tapping or mashing the button.
      You've probably experienced several opportunities buffering it would have been more helpful but never thought about it.

    • EtanB22
      EtanB22 Місяць тому +2

      @nidbahn I do play kiriko a lot didn’t say it was useless I love that change I want commenting on the console ppl relying fully on aim assist to do anything and not getting it through walls slowing messing them up. Because they’re just bad then. Read my comment again before you assume

    • nidbahn
      nidbahn Місяць тому +2

      @EtanB22 clearly you haven't played kiriko enough, this change makes teleporting happen much quicker, increases chances of survival and in general makes the gameplay feel smoother

  • Connor Gray
    Connor Gray Місяць тому +538

    I cannot count how many times I have died to the unreliability of wall climbs or mashing swift step repeatedly and it not trigger. So happy about these quality of life improvements.

      ​@A guy on the internet second that guys point. Died a few times expecting myself to run up a wall because I just finished playing Genji and remembered she didn't have the option a fraction of a second too late.

    • The Bananas
      The Bananas Місяць тому +5

      @A guy on the internet 1. You'll still only climb if you're facing the wall when you jump at it, so it would be rare to accidentally do it.
      2. A lot of us are used to the auto-climb functionality that Genji and Hanzo have had for a few years now, meaning that Kiriko not having that setting messed some of us up.
      3. Every second counts in a fight, so being able to climb as soon as you touch that wall just may save your life once in a while.

    • A guy on the internet
      A guy on the internet Місяць тому +1

      I'm confused. Wouldn't climbing as soon as you touch a wall be way worse?

      @johnnycaralta yeah I played 1 game on sym I literally felt sorry for the enemies team. It was Nepal yes a good map for sym but they went phara mercy Winston. I just went out of Los of phara and turret bomber ppl and melted the monkey over and over to then snipe the phara out of the sky with turrets on the walls lol

    • johnnycaralta

      @Siks7Ate9 Sym is borderline op now.

    • Siks7Ate9
      Siks7Ate9 Місяць тому

      @Yazz you said it yourself rein is bad... So why do I need another counter that got buffed. Also I don't shieldbot at all... I play rein and when I get there I will have balanced my resources like I should have and then I get to sym and can't do anything that doesn't make her stronger and stronger while I'm unable to swing because by the time I get close enough she already has a tier 3 beam and will melt me... Even if you take the most optimal path she gets a T3 beam while your walking at her to be in swing range

    • Yazz
      Yazz Місяць тому

      @Siks7Ate9she isnt a hard counter, she is a soft counter at best. She needs to be damn near in melee, and so are you, press W and swing, if you ran out out shield and are low on HP by the time you get there, worl on your pathing and learn to play rein. What next you want hitscan lazer beams that shoot pharahs out of the sky? Thats a hard counter. Youre just embarassing yourself.
      Rein is bad, Syn existing is not even remotely the reason lmao. And I seriously hope I never get you shield botting in any of my games, but given your opinions I find that a little unlikely anyway.

    • Sum Gai
      Sum Gai Місяць тому +1

      @Specialopsdave Not to mention, TONS of players use shield heroes depending on the map. Like Sigma for poke comps or Rein on Kingsrow. Not sure what games you're watching. But that happens at literally all levels of play. So, unless you're a console player, Rammatra is objectively worse than about every other tank. Keep taking those Ls.

    • Sum Gai
      Sum Gai Місяць тому +1

      @Specialopsdave Comps change. But seeing as he isn't going to be used in high level play it doesn't really matter. Doom and Hog are top right now and both absolutely shit on him. So either with a shield or without, his ult is worthless unless you're a Bronze player.

      @Tony The Pigeon not wrong. everyone else gonna get actually mad when they can't play Kiriko, cos she's the only one with a busted escape, she'll be the only option not to play spawn simulator. if people thought surviving as support was challenging before and doomfist becomes meta, lmao. gonna be a lot of tears and long ass queues once the new season bounce wears off.

    • Sam
      Sam Місяць тому

      @ThunderStriker absolutely. most people playing Kiriko have AWFUL positioning and rely on swift step because it's the only support they don't immediately die on. they don't (well.. shouldn't) balance around heroes being played badly.

    • ThunderStriker
      ThunderStriker Місяць тому

      @Sam as a person who was Baptiste main to a Kiriko main.
      Kiriko is only good if you know what the heck you're doing.
      (Dude I see so many bad ones LOL)
      She's only OP when she's used right, cause when someone uses her suzu or ult incorrectly, it becomes terrible.

  • Myth Mage
    Myth Mage Місяць тому +10

    Rampage wound duration reduction isn't completely a buff. The 100 damage comes out 0.5 seconds faster, but that also means that the antiheal effect lasts 0.5 seconds sooner. I like this change, but just something I wanted to make others aware of.

  • BarklessTree
    BarklessTree Місяць тому +811

    The switch between gun and staff time reduction is actually going to be pretty nice to put a little pressure on flankers since the entire team completely ignores them most of the time while they destroy both supports in the back lines :)

    • BlaizeTheDragon
      BlaizeTheDragon Місяць тому

      @Nexa rare or not, the situations exist and I'd rather have a chance to fight back when you'd probably have more success to fight than to flee. I have to say, if a genji is on my tail and him alone with the nearest teammate still too far to fly to then absolutely that blaster is coming out.
      A good hero has tools for all eventualities no matter how frequent it is.

    • Nexa
      Nexa Місяць тому

      @BlaizeTheDragon Rare situations. In most cases you're better off using her mobility to escape. Because as you said DPS have better kits to kill you, you won't do much to them with your pistol. But anyways it won't hurt either for those rare situations so why not.

    • BlaizeTheDragon
      BlaizeTheDragon Місяць тому

      @Nexa two reasons. One, healing/boosting does not mean the person you're attached to will actually help stop the person attacking you (also flying to someone will not help if you're being pursued by high mobility DPS)
      And two: spawn campers who await you to leave spawn and kill you before you get close to a teammate

    • Nexa
      Nexa Місяць тому

      Why would you take out the pistol when you can just fly away to another team mate you can damage boost and heal?

    For bastion, instead of doing a bunch of explosion damage, I think it should do a little explosion and have a burn effect on the ground for a while like torb.

    • Small Might

      That would remove it's main function though, which is the use the explosion for tons of mobility.

  • Mikael Brenner

    Doomfist powerblock buff is actually insane. It went from 0,25s per second to 0,35s per second. That’s a 40% uptime buff.

  • Szabolcs
    Szabolcs Місяць тому +3

    I think the point of the Mercy changes is actually to encourage battle medics to heal (for real though, the problem was always that jt was cumbersome to mix the two, now the glock can contend better with damage boost)

  • Gowon Gang

  • EvilestDeath
    EvilestDeath Місяць тому +2

    I like the part of this games story where Blizzard made a problem for the game limiting the number of tanks to 1 for specific modes, admitted they had a major issue due to too many people wanting to queue as tanks seriously hurting the game due to lack of interest in support roles and then announced they had 3 new heros 2 being healers on the way only to release a tank first.
    That was a funny part of the story.

    I still think Doomfist Block (and Ramatra) should let them see in 3rd person. Similarly to Rein and Brig. How else will you see what's hitting you? Imagine if Rein and Brig couldn't see in 3rd persob with their shields? They'd be painful to play

    RAGE_TV Місяць тому

    I think with mercy they should add a new feature. A certain amount of healing gives her empowered bullets. Say she heals 200 hp she gets 2 empowered bullets that ,obviously, deal more damage. Say she’s healed 1k Hp now she has 10 empowered bullets and she can make an aggressive play being able to kill a DPS character extremely fast. It wouldn’t be based on a time limit it would be based on the individual bullet so if u miss you lose out on extra damage. If you die while you had empowered shots you lose everything aswell encouraging you to actually use them when you get a decent amount. I feel like if her entire mag dealt more damage that would be a little too much so let’s say 15 shots at most deal extra damage. This will encourage players to heal everyone not just tank, to stay back so you can build up ur bullets, and to pull out the pistol. Sometimes teammates don’t need healing they need something to be dead and empowered bullets can get that job done. This is kinda like the frontier justice on engi from TF2 where when he gets kills he gets guaranteed crits. 3 kills = 3 crits. So 200 healing = 2 bullets. This is honestly something they really need to consider for mercy or honestly all the support characters. Except for Moira don’t need to be encouraging Moira players to deal dmg😒😒.

  • MSauce
    MSauce Місяць тому

    When I started playing this game I was like Doomfist looks like the strongest tank and oh deception, good to see those buffs on him by the way my favorite tank is Junker queen, haven't seen many people playing her she is so funny to play.

  • Lèfloof
    Lèfloof Місяць тому

    As a person that is (unfortunately for my sanity) a mercy main, I think the little buff is okay. She’s pretty good already, I think anything to her movement would’ve made things too much for other players, since she’s a pain in the butt to hit in the first place. A good mercy with a team doing their jobs properly just shouldn’t die; buffing that’s any more would be a bit much. Plus the blaster swap speed will probably actually help, cannot count the amount of times I’ve been short one extra shot from my blaster to take down a flanking soldier before I die.

  • ppDown2Floor

  • DiegoK

    Wait, I just tested Ramattra in practice range and discovered that you can body block his ult damage completely, and it deals the extra damage to the enemy that body blocks it. I thought it worked like zen ult but with damage, but I guess it's more similar to moira's biotic grasp, but locking on more than one enemy

    I love Doom but keep in mind he still gets mollywhopped by Sombra and easily manhandled by Hog, the best tank of last patch according to ZBRA. No cc immunity or shields for his team, just a much better dive tank as he was a pretty big meme before this compared to other tanks. Super DUPER excited to play him with the training weights removed now.

    JQ barely feels changed. Her healing is still super low (seriously, even great JQ barely break 100hp/minute, an extra 25% isn't going to do much) and her hitbox changes kinda nullify the rest of her buffs. She feels exactly the same as before, just now the worst because Doom got buffed ahead of her.

    maybe im bad but im failing to see how the doomfist buffs are that crazy. the cool down and power block buffs are pretty good but his punch is really no different in terms of overall damage and the .25 stun on regular punches i dont get the point. The ult buffs are good but really not crazy. doomfist feels fundamentally weak as well as his overall damage just being super low.

      @mmmHardstyle every other character in the game has some movement ability to get away, heal, or way to protect themselves. Bastions closest ability to that is his sentry with a little damage reduction, but it is in no way an ability thats you're supposed to flee with, especially since it reduces speed. instead they buff his win button and leave his recon in the terrible state its at.

    Can't believe the METHOD they used to buff Doom. Rather than piling on numbers and weird little extra buffs you need to actively remember, they should have let you toggle power block whenever and it should charge your punch instead of empowering it.

  • sethescope
    sethescope Місяць тому +194

    9:14 to be fair, I think most Mercy players won't use this as an opportunity to go more battle Mercy. i think the main benefit of this minor buff is an increased ability to ward off flankers if you don't have an easy escape route (which is obviously what you want given mercy's insane mobility and survivability, it's better if you can just defend yourself by escaping). the best dps mercy plays are when in Valkyrie, and you have unlimited ammo in ult, so I don't know that this necessarily will encourage any dramatic play style shifts.
    but then again, my opinion is based on my own approach to mercy and how most of the people I know who play a lot of Mercy play. that's not the entire community so ymmv

    Side note not mentioned in this video but they also changed the recovery path of Junker Queen's knife. It used to come directly back towards you, but now it curves out to your right on it's way back. Perhaps giving it extra potential to hit additional enemies on return and apply a little more bleed and adrenaline heeling

    They probably nerfed the railgun damage to get the 1 shot meta out again. Those who remember pre nerf Ashe know what it was back then.
