Symmetra Changes

9 posts in this topic

 

 

If you can't watch the video, here are the important details on her changes:

  • She's getting a second ultimate. You can now toggle between her teleporter and a new shield generator, which gives free shields (exact amount wasn't mentioned) to teammates within its radius. It also ignores line-of-sight so it can be hidden more effectively.
  • Both ultimate placements will now have some regenerating shields to make them last a little longer.
  • Her shield-giving ability will be replaced by Photon Barrier, which fires a shield (similar to Reinhardt's) that moves forward.
  • She'll now be able to hold a stock of 6 turrets instead of 3, and their cooldown will be reduced by 2 seconds.
  • Her beam will have slightly more range.

Changes are coming to PTR "very soon".

Symmetra is getting a looksie from Blizzard again.

Regarding Torbjorn and Symmetra: We've been watching them closely. Up until recently they were performing in lockstep with PC. Recently they've begun to diverge a little bit so we're taking a look at them now and we'll consider adjusting them.

Regarding Reporting: This feature is coming to both PS4 and Xbox. I don't have an exact ETA because there are many moving parts to make this happen. My hope is that everything locks into place before summer... or sooner. But we're at the mercy of things beyond our control on this one and we've been working super hard to make it happen.

Regarding additional bindings: We'll work on this.

I agree, seems like sometimes it locks on you and you just cant get away.

Idk I feel like symetras beam is fine and is really useful at capitalizing on someones mistake of over extending, I'm looking at you genji. If they change anything it should be her alt fire because that thing charges her ult so damn fast
