I’m not clear on why they made changes, or specifically, the changes they made to Torb. I guess he wasn’t good in comp but in general he felt pretty good. I liked throwing out armor packs to people, and while pounding on the turret to upgrade it could have been removed, it really feels like they just nerfed a meh character really hard.
Currently setting down a turret puts it at level 2 instantly. I am not clear on if it has more or less health but it feels like it dies so much faster. It also was given ‘tracer bullets’ so it’s easier to see where it’s coming from, which probably effects how quickly it dies.
Previously if you have your ult up and it started to die, you could pop the ult and much like Winston, it would heal up to something like 800 health and start shooting much quicker. We lost that, entirely.
We also lost armor packs. Completely gone.
We have a minor version of the old ult but it’s only for a few seconds and feels pretty lackluster honestly.
And of course the new ult lets you spray the ground with this molten stuff but it’s so limited it’s super easy to avoid, even easier to avoid than Mei’s original ult AOE effect.
So yeah, gg. Torb is bad.
