    Pretty much the only things widow has above hanzo is her mine can alert her and her gun is scoped + doesn't arc but hanzo doesn't have to worry as much about arcs now. Her ult is pretty crap, hanzo pretty much has a smaller version as a standard skill which is all you need and we don't even need to mention his ult.

    When I get home I feel like wanting to Photoshop hanzo with a rocket instead of an arrow with tree trunks from regular show on the end.

    I recently started playing mei again and with her buff I'm going to main her on def and koth.
    I'm surprised Widow is recieving no buff in this update. She has been F tier since her nerf. She shouldn't be brought back to where she was, but she needs something to make her more viable. I'm not a fan of snipers in most shooters, but she should be at least viable for people that want to play her.

    I love Mei as a character, but I hate her kit. I don't like that she's annoying to play against and her low DPS is also not great. She is really good in 1v1's, but you can be more efficient using McCree or Reaper. Still, at least you know you're likely tilting people when playing her.

    It was actually nice to see her get some play in the $100,000 tournament. I know Rogue and Reunited played her on Hanamura point A. She may have been played outside of that, but I only saw her there when watching live and recordings on YouTube. The wall is really good when used well. The buff to her ult should also help a lot to get people trapped inside. It has a huge radius now.

    Speaking of the tournament, it was such a great watch. Seeing Overwatch played the way it can be by pros is pretty good learning experience. They stay together so much more than you will ever find in pub games and the team fights are over a lot quicker.

    I don't mind her dps since her purpose is disruption, point control and separating the enemy team so indirectly and directly weakening the team. Also she's very good for countering flankers and on KOTH very good from holding the point from a few enemy players until your team comes back etc.

    Widow I would say a good buff would be to penetrate rhein and winstons shield at full charge but dealing less dmg. Also reduce the cd of the hook.

    There's 2 issues with queuing and stuff:
    Solo queue there's so many idiots who can ruin a game for even good players.
    For some reason sometimes low levels are put with high levels.

    It really depends on what playstyle you want to play as though these are probably the easiest to play (terms of how skilled you need to be to get the most out of them):
    Soldier 76
    Lucio
    Reaper
    Bastion
    Roadhog

    The problem that I have with this game is not that some people are unskilled (e.g. aiming with mcree) in terms of how good they are in a fight, but its how they use the role. Some people like to choose whatever the hell they like even if it doesn't work in the game mode or use a hero incorrectly (e.g. using mercy as a dps... wtf?).

    Three most important things to learn in the game:
    Know good team composition and character synergy.
    Counters to each character.
    Your role.

    I too play a lot of Tracer and Reaper. I play Genji the most tho. It feels so damn satisfying to deflect a strong ultimate.

    Is Overwatch honestly worth buying? I'm getting a new PC which is finally up to date and decent spec and I was debating buying it because several people I know have it but I just want to know if it's worth it because I've heard a lot of mixed reviews and it's not as though it's cheap. I don't wanna spend like £30 and end up hating it.
