Winston Shield CD Reduction

General Discussion
Blizzard, thank you for listening to the community on this. There have been many missed plays due to just waiting on the CD for the shield. Winston has always been in a pretty good spot, but this will help him engage more often.
I can't say much about Winston from experience as I found him intimidating to play and play effectively. But in the least, his bubble shield feels more reliable to time with the new patch. I actually want to try him out and see how well I can play as him with this small change.
Now when the shield destroys itself we have to wait 7 seconds instead of like 16-17 seconds
this change basically reduces winston's learning curve a tad since you can be more liberal with barriers now. best change imo. yet no one is talking about it. so thanks for bringing it up.
