Reaper Deserve Buffs

General Discussion
His ult takes too long to charge and the only way to use it is to wraith form in...unless on certain maps where you can drop down but his E is so slow and unreliable and most of the time enemies would know where you are...theres also a widowmaker with wallhack.
His ult is the only ult that require you to move into the middle of the enemy group while being extremely vulnerable compared to sombra who can teleport out...huge range instant ult, once Reaper ult hes stuck in ulting saying "Die...die....dieeeeeeeeeee" any tank can kill him easily.
List:
Zarya bubble any teammates
Dva swallow his ult
Reinhardt charges into him
Roadhog simply hook....
Genji can deflect
Mc Cree flashbang
Mei wall
Doomfist HU-RGH
Ana sleep dart
Lucio *boop*
Pharah *boop 2*
Junkrat *boop 3*
Reaper is just...sad...
Widowmaker kinda has wallhack lol

If you wraith form in the enemies to use your ultimate, you're doing it wrong.
The point of Reaper ult is to surprise the opponent, not to give them the opportunity to stun you while ulting.

Reaper doesn't need a buff. If you want to have your ultimate fast, just focus tanks. You're their counter and they're just an xp farm for you, since you get loads of healing from damaging them. Reaper's ultimate is really good versus squishy and can be casted in no time. That's why it shouldn't be buff

You must agree that E really need a buff...don't you?

Reaper just needs to learn to be stealthy...

"REPOSITIONIIIING"

And when ulting, you gain health from the enemies that are slowly dying, that's why it's really hard to kill you in your ult if nobody stuns you

its difficult to get close enough to do significant damage without dying
the ulti of reaper is very easy to counter because a simple hack of sombra is enough, a hook of roadog, a simple stun, and if you do not have the 6 enemies you go almost nothing regen (and thanks ana)
But I do not think he needs to up his ulti which can be devastating, it's like Phara you have to know when to use it and when especially

But his kit really needs a buff, to be brought up to date
For the spread of these weapons I do not know it's up to the devs to judge

And, trust me, in Diamond and above, where people have game awareness, they WILL interrupt you most of the time.
+5% leech should be enough for reaper IMO. Anything more would turn him into a monster (well, even more).
Spirit (#1 Reaper player) said, "Low speed + short range makes him bad"

Reaper is a niche hero that specialises in close quarter combat, and is rather terrible on open area maps. If you use Reaper with this mindset, you're going to be a lot more successful. If your opponent sees you coming, the problem is you as a player, and not Reaper as a hero. If you have a good sense of timing and average aim, there's no reason why you shouldn't be successful as Reaper. He's the perfect pounce hero.

Does this mean that every pro besides a few ones like Spirit and Flow3r have awful sense of timing and subpar aim? Since Reaper has such a miserable pickrate at high levels.

The pro scene is influenced by popularity and the meta, as much as the average player is. They will mostly stick to playing heroes that are reliable in all situations, rather then playing heroes that are great in one aspect and less in others. Add to this that Reaper thrives on chaos of team fights, and does rather badly in dive comps as he has no quick movements, or grouped barrier comps where ranged damage is important, and you won't have many reasons to pick Reaper in the pro scene right now. If they move into more of a tank meta, I definitely can see Reaper being played more. But you and I aren't pros, we're just average players trying to have fun, so what the pros use or don't use, isn't really relevant to the games we play.
I think Reaper needs a spread reduction, yes he's a tank killer but they can kill you most of the time, he should be able to kill you abit further away.

Yes, because Reaper was very popular back during the Triple Tank meta.

Its not going to work mate. You dont need to make reaper a better tank killer, he already does a good job there.
The problem is everything else, he is a close quarter hero and doesnt have any reliable mobility. I would copy paste the things said in 12-15 threads about reaper but im tired, i dont think reworks are happening.

Blizzard doesn't give a !@#$ about anyone but Genji and Tracer
