Apparently the Ana nade nerf has been reverted. On top of that Zenyetta is not able to discord through shields anymore, but the spread on his orb shooting has been decreased.

If I recall correctly, they reverted her grenade and her rifle's healing aspect, but kept the nerf on the rifle's damage output.

Well, Eichenwalde just crushed everything, leaving Watchpoint: Gibraltar and Dorado in the dust. The new question who your favorite tank is.Feel free to leave as to why in the thread!

I really enjoy Reinhardt's kit. Charging is so much fun.

I played a lot of D.Va before her nerf, now I struggle to find the balance between getting too aggressive (resulting in my almost instantaneous death) and playing too defensive (resulting in dim-to-nil contribution to team fights and the match overall) After I finally figured out how to play Zarya, she has become my main tank. While on occasion I play Reinhardt, I again find it difficult to balance aggressiveness with defensiveness.

Zarya outweighs Roadhog by a slim margin due to the almost mediocre simplicity of Roadhog's kit, making him somewhat a bore to play despite how "meta" he is. (Though I still get gratification from shredding things with his massive damage output.)

Well, this survey was a lot closer than the last, but Reinhardt has come out on top. The question will be who your favorite Defense hero is.

Also, I've seen the new Junkrat in action... It is a glorious and majestic sight to witness.

Apparently, we are getting a lot more lore in the form of little tidbits of info that come along with some of a hero's skins. From these little facts, we have learned that the name of the Shimada brothers' father is Sojiro and that Widowmaker has a background as a ballet dancer. Small facts, but interesting no less.

Orisa drops on the live servers tomorrow. I'd like to hear about how you guys plan to use her, or how you think she could/should be used, or whether or not you plan on playing her at all. She has some great personal gameplay and is very beneficial to her teammates and Overwatch's 2nd anchor tank.

Also, they completely redid Lucio. They sped up his projectiles, upped his effects, but shortened his aura range. You basically have to be standing on your teammates in order for them to gain any benefits from your presence. Blizzard seem to have traded personal experience for teamplay benefits.
