General Discussion
Title.
Mada mada
"Not good Enough" If you wanna become a pro genji, reflect a ultimate and then tbag on their bodies spamming "Mada Mada"
The name of the voiceline is the translation, something like "you're not good enough".
Muda Muda Muda
Bad english for "Mother Mother". Genji seems to be a little cry baby.
Not enough or Not good enough
I need healing
It's basically a taunt to your opponent.
mada mada dane まだまだだね,means "not enough ","not good enough ",who said it to you showed an unsatisfied attitude to your ability,skill,or other things he probably refered to
It means "not yet," in Japanese, or that you still have more to do to reach your goal. In this case, Genji is saying you're not yet strong enough to kill him.

You can use as a taunt like Genji does here. Or you can use it sincerely.

Here's some sample sentences from Jisho.

“I NEED HEEEEEEEALING”
it means you're about to get hit by a road roller
It means not good enough in Japanese. The voice line is even called not good enough.
It means "wait up !" basically
if you are to slow to catch up with your team for example
it also means "not yet"
everything depends on context
for example the word "like"
I like overwatch and paladins is like overwatch.

I think you're confusing "mada" with "mate".

Accurate.
Like can anyone confirm these voices actually mean anything? Or is it like those idiots who get a Chinese tattoo and are like look at me man I’m down with the orient the culture ya man. WTF you have chicken soup in Chinese tattooed on your arm idiot.

It would be funny if blizzard is trolling people.

If true it is hardly surprising...it is genji.
