Reinhardt's hammer swing speed issue.

Bug Report
Prev 1 10 11 12 26 Next
I did some tests, and the hammer has a different hitbox on the PTR. The hitbox looks like the one that it had before the anniversary patch. The hammer now has equal reach with each swing(Progress!!!!). The timing seems to still be a bit off though. Will need some of the editing wizards to put the two side by side and time their hitbox speeds. All in all, it seems better.

I can confirm as well that the hit boxes have changed. Atleast they are working on it now. Thanks for the videos

Try raising your shield the moment you hit your target, or throwing a firestrike, on ptr, like you could do before the Anniversary.
Your hits still will not register. Also earthshatter is still a coinflip on if it will hit or not regardless of what the visual shows you.
Yes the second swing seems to be more equal in time to the first swing on ptr but the problem that was introduced recently to Rein is nowhere near fixed.
At least we know that something is being done. I just hope that they are still working on it, and will properly document it when it's been fixed.
FIX YOUR GAME!! ITS BEEN 9 DAYS
For 2 weeks I can not play at the district. Lord, for what ??
ptr isnt much better, even worse when it comes to his ult, had reaper jump and my ult missed him.
If you guys find something try to record it. The more proof of what is wrong, the easier it will be for Blizz to fix it.

Edit:

I'm updating a post on the PTR regarding the changes/potential changes too. Post there as well as here if you find anything.

BUMP
I've been frequenting these forums a lot lately because of Rein's bugs, in case we got an answer and it's apparent by the frequency of threads, that something has gone wrong not only with Rein but in general with the games net code. I've multiple threads and clips of people showing shots that find their mark and make the hit confirmation sound only to not register.
I guess the fact that there hasn't been an update on these matters from blizzard means that they are working on it or that they are aware and that's how the game is supposed to work now?
Blizzard fix please.
Day 10?
They seem to be working on it on the PTR now? If you can, check out the changes by yourself, it seems they haven't fixed it yet. Also add your posts to the following PTR bug reports:

Didn't think this was going to be as big a deal so I played Rein for my placements. Huge mistake. I recommend not using him in Comp until the fix is implemented.

I haven't done my placement matches for the same reason. I just hope the fixes will be in soon, and we can all have Reinhardt back.
when is this going to be fixed???
BUMP
I play in PS4, so can't test the PTR, but things feel very off on PS4.

Yes, Reinhardt was the hit the worst, I won't play him at all anymore. But since the anniversary update, so many things feel off to me.

I feel like What iam seeing on my screen is now very different from what the enemy is seeing on his screen...

I put the killcam back on and I can see that my responses are not even shown in many instances (for example, I throw and detonate a junkrat bomb), in the kill cam you see soldier killing me, but you don't see me throwing or detonating the bomb...

Tracers feel like they are much harder for me to kill.

And my average number of deaths per game has skyrocketed for certain characters.

I have super fast internet and found that turning on the 'limit server send rate". Has helped some, but things are still off...
Blizzard please

I want to play my favourite character again, I miss him. :'(
bump , its been 2 weeks
