As Blizzard’s support for Overwatch rolls on, players might see some more buffs and nerfs for specific characters.
First, after getting a nice buff with the patch the released Ana, Zenyatta might get a touch of a nerf. The word comes from Overwatch Principal Designer Geoff Goodman on Battle.net. Apparently, the team is talking about nerfing his Discord Orb, the ability that causes enemies to take more damage from attacks. That bums me out.
Zenyatta is definitely playing a lot better these days. At this point anecdotal feedback, internal stats, and competitive feedback are all showing hes actually a bit *too* strong at the moment.
At this point we’re looking likely to reduce some of his power in an upcoming patch, probably related to his Discord Orb.
In that same thread, Goodman indicated that the team is looking for a way to make Mercy a touch stronger. They might even give her a new ability, though Goodman asserts that “it would ideally have to be something that she could use more ‘outside of combat’ or something that is generally used much more rarely.”
Finally, Mei’s Blizzard Ultimate might be improved to affect more and move through barriers like Reinhardt’s shield. I’m all for that.
What do you think of these potential changes?
