Im going to start playing Phara a bit more, she seems overpowered and you can really chain up the mulikills using her, perhaps the best close quaters toon ive played yet.
Who else has played competitive? I am still a bit away from being lvl 25 so no ranked for me yet.
the problem is, most matches are decided by character ability rather than player skill. The balance is pretty dreadful. Isn't that much of a shock, WoW used to have pretty dreadful balancing as well. So many abilities need to be toned down. Mei having an auto attack that deals damage, slows and freezes is a little bit too much is just one example of the rather bad balance. Think the freezing should be removed and the damage reduced by quite a bit or keep the damage and remove the slow and the freeze.
Cant wait to see what they do with Zanetta, i just hope its not a boring buff like a little extra health, though its VERY much needed - getting 1 shot to a bullet/arrow to the leg is laughable for something made of metal. I think his skills could do with updating and improving as well.
