    Only got two of the new skins during the event (Talon Doomfist and "I need to speak to your manager" Sombra)

    Definitely my worst haul of any event so far, but I pretty much only played to get arcade boxes

    Brigette is out and to say people are displeased with her is an understatement. Check out the win rates

    PC win rates:
    • Bronze: 85%
    • Silver: 77%
    • Gold: 65%
    • Platinum: 66%
    • Diamond: 64%
    • Master: 76% (!!!)
    • GM/T500: 68%
    • ----------------------
    • Xbox one: 64%
    • PS4: 60%
    Console is a bit skewered since smurfing is a major issue and the player bases are a bit smaller.

    That's a 69% average win rate across the board (on PC). Second highest is Symmetra at roughly 59%. Though obviously with her she becomes more of a situation/strong pick on certain maps at higher levels, thus allowing her win rate to shoot up because she's mostly picked in those situations. Even if it's early that type of statistical anomoly is probably a sign something's wrong.

    Brigette averages on fire time at about 30% across all levels. second highest is Reaper at 17%. Again, big gap means big problem.

    It's still early and people haven't figured out how to counter her properly. I wouldn't become concerned until much more time has passed. Rushing to make balance changes typically isn't the solution.

    Personally, I think she really messes with the known metas from previous seasons and is going to force people to re-think the way the game is approached. I'm genuinely interested in running 3 supports and seeing how it works.

    these Anna changes are going to be great. She's probably my favourite healer to play aside from Lucio, and this might give Anna the edge.

    Still not happy with the Symmetra changes

    She's getting more ammo per clip, 10 to 14. Also, her healing will go through fully healed allies so tanks won't block her from healing anyone that is in front of them if they're at 100% health.
