Jeff, Reinhardt Is Ult is Inconsistent ( Video Proof )

General Discussion
I don't know how many times I'm going to get stun from bull crap areas.
The height box from the ult is insane.

I do not have a highlight of my own but I do have a youtube video that supports my reasoning.

EX.1) When i double jump as genji, I shouldn't be stunned that high in mid air. I was wrong. ( Video in the bottom )
EX.2) When I use my jet pack as pharrah ( NOT SHIFT ). Having 3/4 of the bar almost gone, I still get stunned mid air. ( Video )
EX.3) Their was moments where Im in Route 66 that I got stun in high ground. So i was playing McCree on Route 66 match. So the payload was about to cap. We were in the last choke inside the factory. You know that huge truck on left? So I was going to take high ground ontop of that truck. Somehow Somewhat, reinhardt look straight at the middle center of the truck. I Use My Highnoon. He counter me from lowground by using his ult. And his ult reached me ontop of the truck. Like is just spiderman climb on the truck. Does line of sight not matter?

Youtube Video:
Genji & Pharrah Height video - https://youtu.be/wPSrMH-3ttM?t=6m51s

Physical DOESNT MATTER DO NOT TRUST THE ANIMATION video:

https://youtu.be/wPSrMH-3ttM?t=4m51s ( Imagine this car as a huge big truck from route 66, yeah he could still stun you from that high. it climb walls...)

https://youtu.be/wPSrMH-3ttM?t=3m29s ( Fake Animations. ) This made me laugh. You cant get stun from medium ground.. but I get stun from the truck in route 66...

This needs to be look at every game i got into has to do something with bull crap reinhardt ult. Apology for bad grammar

EDIT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFiZwqsdvVg&feature=youtu.be&t=470 Thank You ( someone int his forum for linking me this ) This is exactly WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT.
Reinhardt's Ult is a 3D cone, not a 2D triangle.

It will stun target in the air.

Have a look at the width of the ult on the ground.

This is it's diameter.

I'm pretty sure I know what Earth Shatter look like... But I don't get how that answer my statement? Someone hasn't check the video that I'm talking about.
Maybe you don't understand.

There are some bugs associated with the ult, but stunning targets in the air is not a bug, it's an intended feature.

So a double jump genji SHOULD get stunned in mid air?
Yes. If you read the description, it says his ult is a cone.

Do you know what a cone is?

Im not talking about the shape... Im talking about the height hitbox is absurd and sometimes it climbs over short ledges of walls. Higher than payloads.
this isn't school, this is overwatch forums.

If it's a cone and his double jump is within radius of the cone, then yes he should.

Whether the cone itself should be changed is a different matter.
Yeah Rein ult always seem to piss me off as genji. I dash as the Reinhardt Ults and sometimes he hits me when he shouldn't hit me and ill be behind him

That's like saying Mei's Blizzard shouldn't freeze enemies over short ledges.

Mei's ult is a 3D sphere.

These things happen because it's 3D.

But lets say Im pharrah... without using my shift, Using all my bar. Im still in the radius of the cone but i still get stun?
Is earth shatter.. Is height hitbox of that ult shouldn't be that high. If your ontop of a car or a huge obstacle that you think you won't get hit.. think again.
Yes. If you read the description, it says his ult is a cone.

Actually, if you were to involve realism, its called EARTH SHATTER, not AIR SHATTER.

Even if a 1000 ton rock came crashing down from the sky, and you jump just a the right second, you won't feel a thing. You might feel a burst of kinetic energy, but otherwise nothing.

This includes Reinhardt's giant hammer.

YES Thank you! It's not just genji too. Even if your behind close to reinhardt ( NOT WITHIN THE CONE ) you'll still get stun especially if you have a huge hitbox such as roadhog and d.va
In every one of the videos you posted, all the targets are within the area of effect.
Just wanna mention, that this is a two way street. Yes a lot of times his ult hits people it shouldn't but at the same time a lot of time when you use your ult on people it should affect but it doesn't. His ult is just really inconsistent.

In every one of the videos you posted, all the targets are well within the area of effect.

When an earthquake happens in real life, please be in the air when it happens so you can tell me if you can feel the EARTHSHATTER or not
Well, how about hitting the catwalks in Gilbraltar with Earthshatter?

If Reinhardt is in a position where the cone projects on to the catwalk then yes.

I know it's been raised that the visual indicator of his ult is crap.

Doesn't help when the name of ult itself is misleading. I hope it's something Blizzard will look in to.
Today I learned that people don't understand that a hammer can hit you while it's traveling towards the ground.
Comon guys, it's an ult. If pharah didn get stunned she will just empty her clips into poor rein who was just collecting his kill. Now how is that fair to him
