i think he's ironclad should heavily rely on aiming skill.

I do not really agree with that but I'm interested to know how you would make that work somehow.
Old sentry + new recon + old tank = best Bastion. I've been saying it since the rework went on the PTR. We don't need Ironclad, we don't need 300 bullets, and most of all we don't need to encourage Bastion to just sit in Sentry form for damage reduction. We need Bastion to kill everything in front of him if the enemy team lets him get set up.

Bastion's Sentry gun spread and lack of headshots is an inexcusably harsh nerf to his damage relative to only 20% Ironclad, and the severely limited effective range works completely against the idea of a stationary, vulnerable turret.

I myself would also much prefer new recon/healing + old sentry and tank but I doubt Blizz will get rid of Ironclad since I feel like that Blizz tends to not get rid of abilities very quickly and rather find a way to balance a hero with all their abilities still present.

I'm honestly speechless
Bastion should be given his shield back. It would have 200hp and be a button press ability.
