Va, Winston, Gengi, and Tracer all work out better with Zen. Personal Question: Why isn't Zarya used more often? Mei is inbetween hanzo and torb+bastion so this makes sense. Trying and corner her, snipe her, or bait enemy mercies into going for unsafe resurrections. After the first week of Stage 2, Fissure's 1,117 player rating is third out of the 13 rated Winston players. Va's average pick rate was 90 percent and 89 percent, respectively.
Many high elo streamers say picking reinhardt is throwing when you can pick Orisa. The factors above were the ones we saw had a significant effect on winning a match. These two heroes have had the most dramatic impact on the meta due to their AoE heal potential and unique ultimates, making support play feel reminiscent of late 2016 Overwatch. In Stage 1, tobi ranked 11th among 22 players to play at least an hour on the character. It's okay for a hero to be good in one tier and bad in another. With Mercy being so strong, some picks are better than others.
Turns out it's only gone and turned him into an absolute monster - in specific scenarios, of course. In that time, he posted a 799 player rating, ranking 11th out of 14 players with at least an hour of playtime on Winston. His Transcendence is capable of negating damage, and his Discord and Healing Orbs are great for both removing vulnerable targets and ensuring allies are kept in the green. The meta's in a pretty balanced place right now, meaning many heroes are still viable, even if they aren't topping our list. Both Roadhog +10% and Reinhardt +7% are seeing a big bump in popularity, while D.
Seoul and Horizon Lunar Colony vs. His molten core can make a huge impact during the final few seconds of a match. We consider ultimate abilities used 12 seconds prior to a fight start to be included in a match, and all ults used after the fight ends are considered not part of the fight. Torb, for example, just happens to only be picked on defense teams 99% of the time. So how is Blizzard fixing her? Able to get herself out of a sticky situation at the press of a button? And he can't contest snipers. Part of the data that we were able to collect is the play-by-play data of each map - including information on each elimination that has happened in the game. It seems worth the trade-off in mobility and survivability.
Lucio -8% and Zenyatta -4% are still seeing quite a bit of play, while Ana -6% has fallen even further out of popularity. Her excellent, immobilising Ultimate ability does require you to have a team who are savvy enough to capitalise on the opportunity though, so she's by no means a first pick if you're queuing up for a match with randoms. On top of that she does pretty decent damage against squishies. This Korean gaming sensation is really good at creating space and forcing enemies out of position. This is probably due to the fact that they have in their roster one of the best Junkrat players in the league, and are playing to his strengths. It took each map against the Shock by one point, then did the same in its first map against Dallas, which was followed by a draw. In reality he's really good on attack and less functional on defense.
Mei, Junkrat, widowmaker, and hanzo are all awful too. Not to mention she has great burst healing and can negate the healing of enemy heroes. Characters that excel up close like Reaper and Mei also give her issues. Pharah is tier 3 at the highest not tier 2. That came to an end in Season 8 as her ability to constantly throw down shields and hold the frontline began to see the light of day.
Editor's Note: January Update Season 14 Overview It's difficult to make any definitive statements, but here's a snapshot of the heroes who are already beginning to have an impact in the competitive mix: Special thanks Your Overwatch's video which also proved to be a valuable resource when it came to getting a handy overview of the meta highlights right now. That month, three teams used Brigitte against the Excelsior more than they did overall. I'm making some further changes later on as I had a couple of uncertainties that I want to correct - I also think we perhaps need an extra bracket. According to Winston's Lab, he had the highest rated Roadhog in Stage 1 minimum 30 minutes played. Who knows how much more Brigitte will be nerfed before the Season 10 patch hits and she joins competitive play.
Just because something is unviable in tournament play with coordinated teams that literally live together sometimes, doesn't mean it won't be useful in Ranked. According to Winston's Lab, Envy played the hero for 42 minutes and 53 seconds and had a 1,422 Impact Rating measure of overall contribution to map objectives. While comps are more static and Brigitte exists, she still is often used as the the 3rd tank to round out the triple tank line-up with some mobility, burst damage and damage negation. Tracer and Genji are able to do all of this far more reliably, so unless Blizzard go and buff Doomfist a bunch, it's unlikely we'll see him knocking around in Competitive play for a while. Certain maps favor certain heroes while other heroes are more generalists and are less map dependent. As it was, the Excelsior used Hanzo only 6.
