Should we just call this game Barrierwatch?

General Discussion
Barrier users:
  • Reinhardt
  • Symmetra
  • Orisa
  • Zarya
  • Winston

Barrier counters
  • Sombra's ultimate
  • Lasers
  • Bastion

The funny thing is, most heroes that would counter a barrier use barriers themselves.
Are you suggesting having barriers is a bad thing?
One bastion and those barriers vanish in seconds. Get a junkrate and you can fire over those barriers. There are a few different things you can do other than just using sombra's ult.
Pharah says اهلًا (hi)
You forgot Bastion! Oh and Pharah I guess because if you have a Rein-Sym-Orisa-Winston team with two more healers literaly no one can deal with her(exept maybe Ana but she got nerfed so idk)
all say hi and not to worry because those barriers melt in about 2 seconds with any of them on your team.
Forgot about Bastionius, yes. I forget sometimes Bastion is the new Soldier lol.

My point is that we have a lot of barrier based defenses. I like defenses like Mei's ice wall. Sure, you can't see through it, but that's also a good thing- they can't see through it too. And lasers can't puncture them.
