Since the game was officially released, I haven't seen much plays of the game being given to Bastion.
I think there is credit to be given to Blizzard that different people have different opinions about who is OP. I have seen people attack Genji, Bastion or even Winston as OP.ObsidianJones said:There are just certain Characters that Blizzard loves most and gives them the most Kit.
To me, those characters are certainly Bastion, Reaper, Tracer, and Mei. Their damage potential, ability to singlehandedly take care of a team, and heal themselves is way too much. With most of them, just take the ability to heal themselves away would make them fair in my mind.
For Reaper, I'd just take away the teleport. He already has a mist form. Just too much.
Except it really isn't.Obbi said:Counterpicking for a particular setup is fair advice for this game, where switching characters is relatively seamless. However, I feel like it falls apart a bit when Bastion is the only hero where you hear this advice.Eric the Orange said:But seriously people who think Bastion is OP need to learn how counter pick. Bastion is the easiest character to counter pick in the game.
Blizzard deserves all the credit in the world. I love the game.hermes said:I think there is credit to be given to Blizzard that different people have different opinions about who is OP. I have seen people attack Genji, Bastion or even Winston as OP.
Hey, putsing about as Torbjorn and letting the turret do all the work is a very hard to master skill, I'll have you know. It's hard to be that good when Bastion 2.0 is so hard to use.Irridium said:
he can be infuriating. Makes it all the more satisfying when I chain him as roadhog. Though it's still usually him in potg or trobjorn putsing about while his turret kills everyone.
Bastion isn't tanky and he can't move in turret mode. Tracer can one-shot him with her sticky, Pharah can nail him with rockets with supreme ease, Widowmaker and Hanzo can snipe him effortlessly, hell, Roadhog can hook him out of turret mode, etc.. When you know where he is, he's easy to deal with. Just don't be a dipshit and run straight at him solo. Co-ordinate with your team.Frankster said:Also what is this myth of "if you know where Bastion is, you can counter him". That is just bull of the highest degree, there are chokepoints such as on Vostroya industries where you can damn well know where the bastion is, it doesn't change diddly squat, not least because you also have to deal with said Bastion's team supporting it as it overwatches the only entrances.
