  3. Is the current meta Blizzard's attempt to get DPS mains to try tank/healer more?

We'll probably always have Hanzo mains, but maybe we won't see so many one tank, one healer, four dps comps.

I'm not a huge fan of the all tank and healers only comps, it feels very much against the concept the game intends, but it's definitely better than a team of nothing but snipers.

Ha... the assumption that it was bliz who planned on the goats meta is pretty hysterical.

They can't even figure out how to kill it without entirely deleting brig.

The hell does Brigitte have to do with it again? It continues even with her having been nerfed into the ground. People seem to always forget Ana and Lucio both received buffs at the same time Brigitte was released (and they still have those buffs while Brigitte has been run into the ground). Brigitte is clearly not an issue here.

You have no clue what you're talking about.

Is Ana part of goats? No
Is brig in 100% of goats comp? Yes

Lucio buff was just a larger radius... which is nice but not reallya factor in goats.

2 supports with passive AOE healing... 1 is brig. Goats was hardly ever used before brig.

Your question is what does brig have to do with it?

You must be trolling.

Idc about the meta as long as I have fun with the viable heroes in it.

Ana is in GOATS on ladder, dunno about pro play.

Lucio and brig are the 2 you will always see.

3rd is almost always zen. Discord and still the best defensive ult in the game. Sometimes moira, I haven't seen ana or mercy picked in OWL yet but I don't watch every single match.

All the supports are good and playable as the 3rd but mercy is probably the worst.

The only thing Blizzard/Overwatch devs are trying to do is get more money so we shouldn't pretend they are trying to do it for the players. All they see is viewers getting bored and not watching OWL because it's dominated by GOATS vs GOATS, aka the most boring to watch team setup so they are changing heroes to make the OWL pro players choose DPS to get the viewers back.

That's it. That's the only reason they are doing anything. Don't look beyond that because there is nothing to see.
