HERO UPDATES

Moira

◽ Biotic Orb
○ Healing reduced from 75 healing per second to 50 healing per second
○ Damage reduced from 50 damage per second to 30 damage per second
○ Speed reduced from 20 meters per second to 15 meters per second

Developer omments: Supports don't like that Moira is a viable hero so we nerfed her healing. Genji mains also told us that they got killed by the orb once so that has to be completely destroyed.

◽ Biotic Grasp (Healing)
○ Healing reduced from 80 per second to 60 per second
○ Healing can no longer go through barriers

Developer Comments:We heard that you enjoyed being useful as a support, but the DPS are struggling to kill the whole team instantly, so you gotta go. Also you can't heal through barriers anymore because f you.

◽ Biotic Grasp (Damage)
○ Damage reduced from 50 per second to 30 per second
○ Range reduced from 20 meters to 10 meters

Developer Comments:Genji cried because a support could actually kill him and not be scared. We killed Ana because of this reason and she is perfectly fine atm so this should work well. Her range was reduced because I don't think she should be able to heal!

◽ Fade
○ Speed reduced from 18.75 meters per second to 12.75 meters per second
○ Cooldown increased from 6 seconds to 8 seconds

Developer Comments:No one shall escape our lore and savior Genji!

All joking aside, it will happen; but I hope it doesn't
At least when Moira gets nerfed, then either Tracer or Genji will be in the number one spot. Then we can point to their pick rates as a clear indication that they’re OP and recall and deflect need to be gutted and reworked.

Tracer has the highest pickrate for DPS in OWL. Never thought this was a problem to point out. Genji is not OP, just annoying.

Nah.

Stage 2 starts this week. People will see that Lucio and Zen are the dive meta healers once again, and the complaining about Moira will drop significantly.
I rarely see quad tank in ladder, so where is this meta she enables? dive is still dominant.

It won't drop. Moira is a fun and rewarding support that doesn't have to sit and take the abuse from enemies. Because of this reason, nerf trains will always be directed at her.
I feel like this was a lot of effort to make a rather simple statement.

I wanted to waste time. I know she will be nerfed, I mean Symmetra was nerfed on console and she was never good after the first 6 months. Anyone can be nerfed, even for dumb reasons.
I initially downvoted before realizing you’re joking lol.
That aside though, I don’t see a nerf happening anytime soon, if at all.
She’s still a relatively new hero and the player base is still adjusting. Once the dust settles and people have learned how to deal with her, people won’t complain so much.
This "Moira will be nerfed" topic is also a thing because people keep posting threads with "Moira will be nerfed" for no reason. Seriously stop with this vanities...
Assuming Blizzard is following the same pattern for hero release dates, won't we have a new hero within the next 2 months? (or am I confused?) People will have something else to cry over, hopefully they'll forget about Moira and stop trying to ruin her.

NP, I think a lot of the downvotes are for the same reason. The developer comments are where I tried to express how stupid it would be to nerf her.
