All the Skill

As the new characters are rolling out, it feels a bit like some others got left behind.  That’s not to say they aren’t good, just that others are better.  I’m sure this is an unpopular opinion but I think Pharah needs some minor buffs.  She’s the only character that freezes in place during her ult, which means she’s a complete sitting duck and almost never gets her entire ult line off.  Someone even made a joke video about that, in fact.  Justice rains from AAH!  Justice AHH!  Justice rains AHH!  If she gets out the entire line, the other team is objectively terrible, imo.

McCree is somewhat close behind because he glows and moves slowly but, his range is much better so he can be almost anywhere and after the slight charge up, he fires immediately.

The other thing is, why is she able to kill herself with her rockets or her ult? No one else is like this (other than Soldier and his rockets, I think).  Junkrat was inexplicably made safe from his own bombs and D.va was made safe from her own ult (which she should have been).  But turn to get someone and accidentally hit a skinny road sign? Cool, you just killed yourself.

I tried looking back through the patch notes, but it feels like Widowmaker got buffs. I went all the way back to April but I didn’t see anything.  It feels like her non-snipe damage went way back up, since she can often melt me as D.va when I’m in her face.  Additionally it feels like it takes way too much to kill Widow, since I’ve hit her with Pharah, or D.va, or have been spraying bullets right on her when she had 1 sliver of health and she still didn’t die.  Add that to rapid fire sniping and wtf really? Oh and plus the grapple.  I meant to do a test game with a widow just standing in place and see how long it takes me to kill her.  I feel it’s way longer than other classes especially because of her small hitbox, which I’m almost guessing was possible made even skinnier. When I’m Pharah I try to counter Widow  but it feels like even if I hit her with a rocket, it barely does anything.
