This game seems to be doing very well for itself. Everyone is playing it whenever I look at my friends list.

Because he isn't a threat against a coordinated team or a team willing to change characters. It isn't Blizzards job to babysit people that won't or can't do that.
Well you're obviously wrong, because I trust Blizzard and their judgement over "yankeessuck72" on UnionVGF.

30% less damage? Ouch. It gets a nerf because people don't know how to flank and switch characters?

Still enjoying the game (PC). I play a few games here and there. Almost 40.

well this game will go down to sh*t soon. There was nothing wrong with the character balance. The problem is when you have 1 team have the same character that is where you have a problem. Imagine to have 5 Bastion or TorbJorn on one side.

It is tough to get used to at first. I started out learning Rein and got really good. However teams would counter so as soon as I start getting shut down I go Dva and the mobility catches them completely off guard. Then they switch to characters to counter than and it is back to Rein. I'm always the tank but I'm always shaking things up.

Think of the game like rock-paper-scissors. Certain classes destroy others really well.

Don't be the guy that says "I'm a really good X and that's all I play".
IDD. You sometimes HAVE to switch characters to win, this is part of the game and certain maps cater for certain characters and others say for the start Symetra might be good to defend point A but if they get through then Hanzo might be a better choice for point B.
Also like Kerosene just said, certain classes counter others really well, and part of the strategy is knowing when and where to use them.
Overwatch at first for me, seemed like a normal team based MP online shooter, but the more i play the more i realise how brilliant it is and how deep you can get re how you play a certain map/class/game mode. All in all, OW is one of the best MP online games i have played to date and lots of fun.

I don't think that happens all to often. If it does, you can always counter it.

Dealing with teams of all a class is only tough to deal with if you are playing with randoms who refuse to change tactics and classes.

6 Tjorborns on D? I'd go with a Rein, plus a bunch of Widow/Hanzos. That should break the other team out of their classes in a hurry or better yet win the game.

The problem in the game isn't balance, but randos. People play like it is a twitch based shooter where skill gives you a huge advantage. In this game you don't even have to know how to aim for some classes. The game is so much about playing smart instead of landing the play of the game.

Wait a min....sorry I was wrong, though comp mode would be only one or max 2 of each class but you can roll with 6 torbs if you want.
I guess this is so teams can use whatever strategy they want and doesn't want anyone to have limitations.
Comp mode is pretty tough

Thanks for the update because now the game is damaged. Not going back to that game. Would love to get my money back because now I have a product that is not working anymore.

Much more to do? With who? All 70 other people?
There's plenty of people playing from what I can tell. I haven't had to wait too long for a match yet. If I don't feel like playing with other people, I can go play the campaign or do a bot match. I also like the new moba-like game modes they have. Much more fresh than the few game modes that overwatch has.

Not saying it's better than overwatch, but 30 bucks for a game with a single player and coop campaign, more heroes, fresher game modes, vs 60 bucks for a.multiplayer exclusive game = more bang for the buck IMO.
