⭐POLL⭐ Genji's Balance

General Discussion
Ive seen a lot of people talking about genji, so ive decided to make a poll about genji so i can put all the opinions of people in here and with enough luck the devs can see this and properly adress this.

Remember to comment when you vote so the thread doesnt get buried

Upvote if at all possible so we have a higher chance of the devs popping by

DONT forget to spread the poll arround so we can get as many votes as possible!
Genji is balanced other than deflect. The reason why people whine about him is because he doesn’t have a clear counter. The upcoming Sombra buffs will keep people happy about him since he will be countered hard.
Obviously he'll be voted completely broken here.

Post this somewhere that isn't filled with mindless Genji haters.

Increased movement speed relative to others
His deflect is the size of a schoolbus
He has a string bean body
The hitbox on all his abilities are quite forgiving, especially his dash/melee/ult
Uh oh... I hear the Overwatch forums Genji hate bandwagon marching...

but it all seriousness, even though I dont play Genji (im terrible at him) I think he's overall fine besides deflects hitbox being a bit over the top. I think people who want swift strike to not have a reset or shurikens to have falloff damage are just overreacting. (especially the swift strike reset one)

your acting like the passives break the game, lol. those things arent even close to the things that make Genji good. Its useful yes but not even close to "OP"

Winston is a clear counter in every sense.

Genji can't deflect Tesla Cannon.
Genji's projectiles are absorbed by Winston's barrier.
Winston's large health pool means Genji can't just win with 2 quick attacks.
Winston's mobility is better than the majority of the cast's.
Winston can use his kit to protect his team mates from Genji as well.
The only problem I have is his deflect hit box.

Watch this and just tell me it’s balanced, being able to deflect at targets you can’t even see, through walls, through the floor, it’s ridiculous. And if they still want it to be the size of Roadhog himself at least change the artwork to show that it is that huge.

hitbox thing is really what gets me. hes so forgiving yet for some reason also is one of the hardest heroes to track. when he gets in your face, you have to be extremely good to do anything.

Moira can't be deflected, requires minimal aiming skills, has Fade to match Swift Strike, and has superior attrition (health pool + damage) due to her orb ability.
i voted for the one that says Hes not that broken
Game balance isn’t a democracy.

This isnt democracy

This is puttig all opinions in one place so its easier to see what people think is going on
My favorite type of poll, a biased one.
logically his reflect should be as big as he can reach his arms
everyone's acting like it hits his body and then reflects

1) Genji has to put his nuts on the table to use his melee/dash/ult abilities. The risk-reward ratio is fair.

2) Deflect lasts for only 2 seconds and he can't even attack for that time period. If the damage you willfully inflict upon yourself is less than the damage he would've done with his other moves, you are fine.
