    WHOA They need to add a fourth omnic hero, then add an achievement for all heroes Uprising call "Kill Your Kin" by using that team... We already have an omnic tank and support, Bastion is DPS, so it could be anyone!

    I have over 1000 hours as Symmetra and most of the changes that have been leaked sound terrible. Us Symm ,mains don’t want her changed. We want her improved so other players don’t complain.
    The biggest mistake is taking away her Photon Projector. A good Symm uses it to block Roadhog hooks, sleep darts, flashbangs, helix rockets and then close the distance for the kill. Without the Photon Projector she has nothing.
    The other big mistake is taking away her primary fire lock on. That would be like taking away Widow’s sniper rifle and giving her a shotgun instead, ridiculous.

  • SayWut

    The game balance right now is stupid. You guys are just changing things thats not needed and based off baby cries on the community. Also, the game intention is to be “fun”, but all the changes and focus are for competitive scenes, and the casual changes are based on baby cries. This is just making this game a mess in general.

    Fortnite’s gotta have a story mode. Seriously it has to. It’d work so well. All these limited time missions just aren’t enough. Come on. Do it like fortnite. It’s got a story mode and a pvp. Overwatch’s only got a pvp and limited pves*.

    They should just keep the PVE i mean, not have to wait till next year. BOTS is just BOTS, but STORY or should i say CO-OP it brings out the better side, like Left 4 Dead did. it can give you a break from all the PVP focused Cancer that is Comp (and some QP)and open up on more of the lore. the IN GAME ENGINE CINEMATIC (Retribution) was amazing. LIKE IF THEY SHOULD KEEP ARCHIVES AND RELEASE MORE CO-OP STORY CONTENT.

    Hey Jeff i havent played Overwatch for long but i bet hanzo can still super easily one shot some heroes with a bad aimshot from the split arrows skill . and i bet the sniper hitbox is still super generous (made for noobs, friendly to noobs, my grandma could do it if she would be alive) , so until you decide to make your game a real thing , i will play other games .

    Jeff, a developer update YOU should make is lucio to have more like a knock back ultimate like pharah’s ability like when you capturing a point and the enemy is just coming and your team is very low lucio can knock the off for a couple of seconds and that can give lucio or another healer to get everyone set to have another battle I mean briggite has her armour ultimate and zen has tranquility and I just feel like lucio is now a less played character since his ultimate is kind of useless... heh anyways don’t know what I’m saying I’m just really bored😂😂😂
