Roadhog still feels useless

General Discussion
he can now survive better but it makes him not more useable
just give him more dmg the less hp he has or something like that pls
Just learn to pepper the enemy with some right clicks before hooking them. I'm playing Roadhog more now and i'm starting to nail playing him.
The biggest problem is that he still charges ults like no other character in the game, and he has no barriers or way to really protect his team. His hook is the only thing he can use to really effectively peel, and even then characters like Genji can still probably manage to get away. Is he expected to out in front and expose himself? All in all he's still just worse than every other tank as being a tank and protecting the team. He used to be a bulky DPS pick, but taking that away makes him good at nothing.

If Blizzard wants to -start- bringing Roadhog back into the swing of things they neither A. need an entire rework, or B. give him a passive to reduce enemy ult charge gained by 50% to start with.

Give it such passive, and he'll still be useless compared to other tanks and DPS.
He needs a complete rework or a complete revert
