because there's no point in trying to do anything once you're hooked because you're just f***ing dead


that's not true. perhaps this is just because I'm in low silver (lol me), but as Lucio, I find that I can boop the Roadhog about 1/2 the time and survive after being hooked.


Same here, and I can also shield myself as Zarya and iceblock myself as Mei at least half of the time after being hooked

From what I'm gathering, team composition is now going to be:

100% locks:
- Ana
- Reinhardt
- Zarya

95% locks:
- Lucio
- Soldier

1 "wildcard" spot left over for one of the following:
- D.va or Roadhog for people good enough to work around the nerfs
- Winston in very specific circumstances
- a non-tank specialist for certain scenarios (ex flanking Reaper, sniping Widow, disrupting Mei)

Is that about right?
Couldn't stand shooters until I played Splatoon and Overwatch. Huge props to Nintendo and Blizzard.

This comes down to the person playing the Roadhog not playing him properly, not due to game mechanics. Some Hogs will wait until the hook pulls you back and then click to fire. These are the scenarios where you may be able to get in an action before the shot goes off.

However, a properly played roadhog will hold down left click as soon as he lands the hook while it is in the process of dragging the enemy back. If this is the case, he will 100% of the time get his shot off before any character in the game can physically react. If the shot doesn't kill you, you still potentially have a chance to act between the shot and the followup melee, but that's it.

You can't always hold down left click as soon as you use the hook because then you end up missing every time the person lands in some random spot. You have to wait and react to where people land a lot of the time

Eh, that'll probably get you fewer confirms than holding down the fire button will.

Guess they want d'va to be back to being a joke tank.

Isn't joke tank supposed to be bastion?



That's more of Winston.

For those of you "lol'ing" about the Sombra change... do you really expect Blizzard to jump the gun and make drastic changes when we already had that Ana situation once before, where she was already good but have been buffed to hell due to no one really using her much?

If some of you would stop being so afraid of losing and actually tried using Sombra (and doing well enough), you'd be surprised how much work she can get done, especially against Reinhardt, Zarya, and Zenyatta (and no, i am not referring to just her Ultimate).

Then again, skepticism only comes from players with little to no experience.

D.Va is not a joke tank now, she's just not going to be a pseudo-main tank on top of having great mobility. She is meant to function similarly to Winston much like Tracer and Genji (or Tracer and Sombra).

Roadhog hook is fair now. You need to actually land your hits now, and enemy players can have the oppurtunity to flee if they see it coming. Know what this means? Ambush as Roadhog, don't tank (despite being labeled as such).
