    When you slice with Genji's blade the very last second the slash doesn't get interrupted by the animation of him putting the blade away. Instead he finishes the slash and then puts away the blade.

    Doom's block feels so odd. It doesn't feel like it should be a channeled ability, but it's just like deflect, accretion, javelin spin, etc. It just feels different.

      I feel like he should be able to hold it and go 3rd person, like Rein or Brig. It befits a calculating evil mastermind to be able to "zoom out" and take in all the battlefield information happening around him, IMO.

      @viperuh i agree

    • viperuh
      viperuh Month ago +44

      true but Bap was gonna be inherently much less useful in 5v5 as there’s less AOE healing needed, so in my opinion, he needed some buffs to be balanced. but i’m biased lol

      I noticed something was up with Lucio, my first game on OW2 we were defenders on Watchpoint: Gibraltar, I was the only healer (as Lucio) and we almost won before the attackers even moved the payload, I feel like Lucio's healing was a MASSIVE help in it

    2:29 these are the two same slams just.. used on different verticality.
    the other kind of slam would have an indicator which would have doom engage a lot faster but you would end up with less damage.

    I played an OW1 mod that changed Mei's movement, and it's too bad OW2 didn't use it. You could freeze a path along the floor with her gun to travel faster, but at the expense of ammo (and looking up) so there was a great risk vs reward mechanic to it.

  • griffin Kay

    I like how ult gain from tanks is reduced. Makes dps less likely to target tanks and target healers first

  • Pix Tron
    Pix Tron Month ago +235

    They really gutted Doomfist's kit entirely. They changed him from a good aggressive DPS to the worst tank in the game, especially now that the game is balanced around solo tanks.
    On paper, it looked good, but in practice its just so bad. With the focus on him being a main tank, his abilities disposition him anyways so you can't properly shield your teammates, but you can't properly knockback or deal damage without putting the rest of the team at risk.
    At least Roadhog as a main tank is slightly better because he can hook from his position to give the rest of the team some good picks.
    I really hope they revert him, they turned one of the most fun heroes into a disaster of a tank. How embarrassing.

      @Arnold Munez welcome to modern gaming man, i played smash bros and halo for 20 years and when they ruined those games by listening to the shitters or to only the tip top pros i switched to Overwatch and a few others and now i see they are doing the same shit

    • william west
      william west Day ago

      @Hades (God Of The Underworld, Babe) if ur solution is nerfing the character in the ground where they are unusable or not worth it, just remove them entirely cause thats the lazy way of solving an issue.

    • Arnold Munez
      Arnold Munez 2 days ago +1

      On paper it was a horrible idea, awful players constantly asked for it and here it is. Overwatch needs to stop listening to the bad players who want every good character against them nerfed.

    I know a lot of folks like the bastion change but I just can't wrap my head around it. He feels way to squishy without his heal, and his new mobility doesn't help his previous weaknesses enough.

    You forgot the junk rat trap is changed and how they can move when trapped. Junk's grenades are also smaller, which causes a loss of hit box hitting. They tried to compensate by raising the distance his grenades hit the hit box, but it's an overall nerf from original.

  • Robyn — ThinkingEmoji106

    I learned things in this video I never knew some of these characters had or abilities did. Every time I’ve picked up a new OW character to try, I always get annoyed at the lack of detail. Seriously, at least 3 weapons are just “This is a gun” for the description. Meanwhile in Paladins, abilities are actually explained.

  • Sonia’s Way
    Sonia’s Way Month ago

    Stopped playing about 2 years ago and I'm considering to at least try OW2, so thanks for the update! I was a Mercy-main, but getting to know all the other supports and their abilities makes me wonder why one would ever pick a mercy above all the others. it's a shame. I loved playing her, but hated how useless one felt in comparison. and now, with all the utility the others bring to the table and the general change to much faster games seems to let her fall off even more...

    I think the Damage Role Passive increasing movement speed is a mistake because it helps close range heroes more than long range heroes. The other 2 role passives are equally good for all heroes on those roles I would say.

      Well, that was the goal. To make dps secure kills better, and let individual performance be more of a thing. But it definitely does buff dives disproportionately more than people like widowmaker

  • GojifanCatzilla
    GojifanCatzilla Month ago +1

    Bastion being in tank form for 6 seconds is just way too short. I hope they go back to having you being in alt mode for infinite amount of time, but still give the ability a cooldown. While I like the grenade ability, there was no need to replace the self-repair. They could’ve easily move self-repair to a different button on the controller instead.

  • A AAA
    A AAA Month ago

    I kinda wish they let us choose mei's weapon, Imo in OW2 the kit is efficient on intented targets(killing 200/250hp player) but the current multiple tank qp meta means you need to get very good with icicle shots or there's no point using her. imo having the choice between ow2 weapon and ow1 weapon is good it fulfills two very different goals

  • Maia B
    Maia B Month ago +1

    When the Zarya change to her bubbles being a shared pool is actually a nerf
    ): (shared cooldown means it takes 20 seconds to regenerate both bubbles, vs 10 seconds for both to regenerate seperately, where you could basically stagger the bubbles and basically have a bubble used every 5 seconds if you managed the cooldown right, thus better maintaining energy. sure you can use both bubbles either way but with OVW2 you gotta wait longer till theyre both back)
    For some maths:
    OW1, Zarya could cast max 14 bubbles per minute in the absolute ideal situation where its used as soon as the cooldown is done. (1 right at the start, then 6 more over the course of the minute on herself (1 for each 10 seconds), and then the same on allies)
    OW2: Max possible bubbles is 8 possible bubbles. 2 right out the gate and then 1 every ten seconds)
    And the energy decay combined with that makes it suck even more because maintaining energy is even harder now.
    I hope they decrease the cooldown for those bubbles, because as a solo tank now she needs em
    Not sure how I feel about Cassidy's lack of the flash bang ): how wil i deal with the pesky tracers with their tiny hitbox who are even faster now (if theyre killing*) IK they're reducing cc but agh. Same for the increase on Ana's sleep dart cooldown, considering only one tanks means one less person looking out for the healers, meaning those without an escape route (Ana.) are gonna struggle more. Also automatic nerf to Mercy's flight considering there's one less person to fly to XD. And general decrease on how much ult charge for everyone as theres less people to heal or damage etc.

  • MasterOogway
    MasterOogway Month ago

    Healing is increased, healers line ana have buffs like self heal. Now healer is more fun.
    Also, 1 super tank feels more fun to me than OW1, seen in tank queue times being the limiting factor in OW2 (so far.) And dps are still dps, plenty fun. Nice job blizzard, i like it so far

  • Ryan Reed
    Ryan Reed Month ago +3

    I absolutely hate the bastion rework :/ playing aggressive bastion was fun because of the immobility, you had to know when to get in and out of a situation. He's been stripped of all his uniqueness gameplay wise, I guess the sticky grenade is cool tho.
    also, echo's change should simply have been they only get one ult after changing into someone. The usefulness of her ult should be the versatility not the magnitude

  • angelo perri

      @b33lze6u6 Bruh I mean he needs way more aim cause of his uppercut taken away so he just does not lift enemys easily in the air.
      Like do you think I talk about aim when im mentioning his E? WTF???
      Also.. Yes hes bad right now cause of the new hero releases. Thats mostly because of the meta and not because of Doom.
      "Talking out of your ass" get some manners boi.

    • b33lze6u6
      b33lze6u6 Month ago +5

      @Mista Meff tf you talking about. his gun is the same, his punch is the same aim wise and his slam requires LESS aim now since its an aoe shockwave. You are talking out your ass.
      Old E was at least mechanically unique instead of what it is now, literally just winstons jump.
      I dont watch owl but I watch a few streamers absolutely flounder on doom, barely able to kill a squishy after pumping every ability into them and a few gunshots.
      Hes at most D tier rn and thats being generous

    • Mista Meff
      Mista Meff Month ago +1

      @b33lze6u6 Bro his punch is not meant to kill people. Also if they are stunned you can simply just run up and shoot them 2-3 times in the head.
      Doom just takes much more aim now, which is far better than getting killed by a stupid E and Shift.
      OWL dooms are top damage when they play you know that right?

    • b33lze6u6
      b33lze6u6 Month ago +6

      @Mista Meff not really he only does 100 damage fully charged, and thats if they hit a wall. thats assuming he even gets the charge and doesnt have to immediately waste the charge to get out/reposition.
      what people ended up doing in the last beta was ignoring him since that would mean he never gets charge and his base damage is so low hes basically irrelevant

  • Evelyn Octavia

    Thank you for the video! This is extremely informative. I didn't even realize the huge changes to Doomfist, Orisa, and Bastion because I don't play them lol. I'll have to give them a another try now!

  • Ryan
    Ryan Month ago +29

    You missed a couple things:
    - Orisa’s fortify cooldown went from 10 seconds to 12 seconds
    - Zaryas bubbles start cooldown on activation rather than on destruction
    - junkrats trap does 100 damage now instead of 80
    - soldier’s movement speed was not reduced as that was reverted
    - baptiste’s damage falloff was at 25 meters in Overwatch 1 they just nerfed it to 20 meters in the initial beta and then reverted the nerf in the last patch
    - baptiste’s regen burst had its cooldown increased to 15 seconds from 13
    Honestly this is actually kinda a lot dunno how he missed all of this.

    Reinhardt lost 25% of the shield, he has a bit more health and armor so that he can swing the hammer for a bit longer while waiting to die, but 1 extra fire strike makes it feel like u are playing a wizard for a short time 🙃
    And reaper got a well earned nerf, should've been a slight nerf to the ultimate too, just wanted to show some love to the reaper players ❤ 🤣

      Despite all the complaints and negativity its been getting, they really have been trying with this game. Yes there are bad decisions but compared to how OW 1 ended up, this is way better. I'm sure with time they will make doom better without breaking the game because honestly, OW 1 doom was a pain for both the player and the enemy. Just fingers crossed it wont take too long but they are trying to make it fun.

    Glad you made this. No wonder tracer feels so hard to play now. I spent hours playing her today and didn't get a single one clip. It just felt so off. Everyone lived way longer than i thought they would and i guess this nerf is why.

    Sombra's changes seem to be very fair. Buffs for sneakiness, nerfs for trying to play her like a typical shooter.

    I like the changes, but I feel like they nerfed Sombra a bit too much, and was there even a point in nerfing Tracer's damage

  • Der Giggler
    Der Giggler Month ago +202

    As a former Zarya main I H A T E the bubble changes. Really felt like a nerf because they recharge with the same counter, so if you play the same as OW1 you have 1 bubble at a time instead of 1 personal and 1 team bubble.

      @WeedAsmr and despite it all I'm still consistently making Play of the Games...

    • WeedAsmr
      WeedAsmr Month ago

      @Captain Falcon ya I’ll admit after playing more, I agree with you on thanks being a harder to kill offensive class. Junker Queen legit just is a hassle to kill sometimes. But yes the lack if shields and extra tank does defeat the idea of teamwork/team pushes a lil more to just individuals making plays.

    • Captain Falcon
      Captain Falcon Month ago

      @WeedAsmr as a Reinhardt main, I'm insulted that they massacred my barrier in such a manner & didn't even bother to double down on my passive ability. If every other tank has my passive knockback resistance, then Rein should just *_NOT_* get knockbacked at all. Senator Armstrong up this bitch.
      But seriously the fact that they took away 400 hp from my shield, making it easier to break, while ALSO making it take longer to recover LESS shield health now is fucking asinine. With the changes made to Orisa, Doomfist being a Tank(???) now, & this new Junker Queen bitch, the Tank role is literally just a harder to kill Offense role. Reinhardt was & still is the ONLY tank that actually encourages genuine teamwork & now he's punished for doing so.
      Blizzard seriously never fails to disappoint me I swear.

    Moira is still ridiculously strong without the second tank blocking for the other dps and healers. She should've had a damage nerf imo
    Edit: I've never seen so many dps healers in all of my games before. It's insane

    Overwatch 2 might suck, but reworking Doom into a tank and the Orisa redesign are what I always wanted. Orisa is finally the centaur she should always have been instead of a tank bastion.

    You forgot the passive pharah and echo nerf on the gravity. Direct changes weren't made to the characters, but the games gravity was increased a little which makes the two flying chars fly less, and also everyones jump a bit smaller

    • Altair Gaming
      Altair Gaming Month ago

      Which is funny that the flying characters have some issues, but then Mercy got that glorious change. As long as I have a teammate to zip too, I can stay airborne forever. Sure the downside is slower movement

    hunter mushero Month ago +61

    I think it’s a smart little change to Cassidy’s ult. It’s a little quicker to get to the 200 damage needed to kill a squishy, but takes a while longer to get to the 600-800 damage range to kill most tanks. Where there is only one tank in OW2 that change makes sense to me.

    • ~Lynx~
      ~Lynx~ Month ago +5

      @hunter mushero Okay, but imagine the other Jesse Mcree's out there that are good people, and suddenly a hero character can't be named that because 1 person decided to be a dick, it's just dumb and doesn't do anything for anyone what so ever, it's more confusing if anything and no one is going to seriously call him Cassidy anyways. So it's just a waste of time and resources to only make Blizzard look even dumber than before.
      They're doing the bare minimum to "better their public image", if anything the name change made them just seem lazy.
      And just wait for the OWL to kick off again, players will probably be reprimanded for calling Cassidy McCree, wouldn't be shocked. It just causes too many issues and helps no one in any form.

    • hunter mushero
      hunter mushero Month ago

      @Fillername092 ok I found the graph and reread my comment back. You’re right it does take a little longer to hit the 200hp break point. It’s separated by the second on the graph but it only looks like a quarter to half a second longer than the original ult. I never said it was more powerful either though, just that the change makes sense for the new 5v5 format. I could see how it would feel worse, but I don’t really play a lot of Cass. It makes sense to me because if it were the same as it used to be, without the extra tank, I feel like it would be too easy to wipe teams without shields. Especially where I dwell down in gold.

    • hunter mushero
      hunter mushero Month ago

      @Laxus I get that but the point is that Cassidy or Mcree is a “hero”. He is supposed to represent good and in light of what happened at Blizzard, I don’t think the name fits a hero anymore. I understand that Mcree the developer and Mcree the character are two different entities, and that OW is just a game. I also understand how annoying it is to try and remember the name change. Ultimately I think it was worth the change. It shows at most a recognition of the wrongdoings in the company and some effort to change it. At the least they are making an effort to better their public image. Even if it’s just them trying to better their public image, I still think it’s a positive change for the franchise.

    • hunter mushero

      @Fillername092 I could have been wrong. I was stoned to the bone at like 2am when I made that comment. I’m in gold and play support. Of course listen to KarQ over me. But by the way it looked to me it seemed like it fit the new overwatch better than the old one.
