Pretty much every game I've noticed something. If my or the other team doesn't push the payload all the way on attack, whether they're 2ft or 2 miles from the finish line, it's pretty much guaranteed someone will pick Bastion on the defense turn.

Why is this?

I've noticed this as well...its kinda like it's an 'oh s***' tactic or something, as if bastion is the secret weapon that will save them the game...

I've also noticed that it happens mostly on Route 66's final stretch....

If the defending team switches in Mei, Bastion, maybe Junkrat, and/or Torb, I take it as a sign they've gotten desperate for that win. Nothing wrong with it, they're playing to win. But it gives me a smirk when it happens none the less.

Because they are using Bastion for what he actually is... a heavy damage dealing sentry turret. Especially if they pick a squat spot or sit on the payload and protect it by mowing down the other team.

Panic surprise Bastion is a legitimate tactic that can really pay off. Actually, it's about the only good use for Bastion most of the time.

If the other team does bad I'll usually play the characters that I cant afford to normally play otherwise.

I'll bring out Widow, Ana, Torb, Bastion if I think we're gonna win no matter what I play.

There have been a few times I've switched to Bastion on Payload Defence, and it worked like a charm. The enemies spend the whole match fighting the same heroes, and all of a sudden, they turn into swiss cheese.
It's incredibly useful against teams with a few tanks.

Probably best to switch off after the first death or ultimate is used though.

I've actually seen it work really well quite a few times, but I agree, it is funny. It just feels desperate.
It's not easy being rich. It's even harder being richer than rich.
