Stop Asking for nerfs and ask for counters you babies.

General Discussion
Instead of Nerfing a hero to oblivion until they are useless

Ask for counters to be buffed you bunch of babies.
Sure, asking for counters to be buffed is plausible.

However in extreme cases (e.g. Roadhog, Ana, Genji), a nerf is necessary.
Toxic
That can create a pretty nasty power creep though. Especially with blizzards radical flavor of the month balancing sh*t
and cause more problems? yeah how about just nerfing roadhog instead
Constant buffs lead to power creep scenarios. Your telling me you don't think it's possible to nerf things fairly? Keep in mind if you don't then it's also equally impossible to buff counters fairly either as they are two sides of the same coin.
Yeap. Genju need a nerf.

A lot of the time this won't work, like Ana. She really did need a nerf, and so trying to buff her counters would have disproportionately buffed Winston or Genji.

One example where this was probably a good idea was Reaper. Blizzard said was that one of the reasons that they nerfed Dva was because that her counters e.g. Reaper weren't working. However, Dva is now weak and Reaper still doesn't see much play.

Considering Blizzard can't balance for !@#$? Yeah they can't nerf %^-* fairly either. They'll probably give Roadhog a 20 second cooldown for his hook anda 60 second cooldown on his heal just to appease the 50 !@#$ing threads %^-*!ing about him.
Nerfing = makes something easier to kill for everything

vs

Buffing = have to buff everything to make something easier to kill

Which one do you think will take more time for Blizzard to do?
That's an arms race. You buff their counters, you then have to buff their counters and then their counters... it never ends.
