Legit question at this point. We've had here for almost a month I think, and I'm partially curious and partially terrified to see what she'll bring to the comp meta when she debuts next season.

I'll save my opinion for later, after seeing some good arguments from other posters.

Shes balanced, she has plenty of counters, and only fits incertain comps.

She fits fine in between the other healers.

Aside from Shield Bash dealing a decent amount of damage she's balanced.

Shield Bash needs like a 2-3 second longer cooldown time. Other than that, she's okay.
If you make an intelligent post, people tend to ignore it because they only respond to stupid. Don't believe me? Just look at most of the chained replies.

If you tone down her shield bash, she becomes just trash again and Tracer has her way even more

She's fine. She's free to Pharah, Junkrat (two very popular picks) and Sombra and can't do a lot from a certain range.

Probably more useful on attack and KotH than anywhere else.

Somewhat between balanced and slightly OP. The only thing that needs to be toned down is the shield bash, but she should receive a buff to healing to compensate.

Her stun needs hit box nerf. The hit box is just a little too big.

But other than that she's a great addition

Edit: however I don't want a huge nerf like Doomfists. It just slightly too big.

She's fine. The only thing that need adjustments is the shieldbash hitbox which has been proven to hit enemies even when you are not directly hitting them. Other than that she's ok.

Initially, she seemed overpowered until I remembered Junkrat and Pharah exist.

In my case, I usually try to engage while having aerial superiority, a high ground, or just insane burst to take her, which is a pretty fair trade considering the utility she brings to the table. I think it's fair that I need to invest work to counter her. Her CC and mobility allow her to hold against a frontal assault and the typical flank, so you can't just take her like Rein. Though she can be frustrating to play against, she's nothing that coordinated team-play and certain picks can't counter.

She doesn't play like a typical Support and actually has the utility to be an off-tank. I think the players that will think she's in need of a nerf will be DPS players that refuse to adjust their approach and simply try to melt her like Rein. She clearly surpasses him in that regard and hence, warrants the use of a different style or approach to counter her. Nothing wrong with that.

I do believe, however, that her Shield Bash's hit-box and stun will receive nerfs.
