Overwatch’s Next Nerf May Be Zenyatta, Not Long After His Buff

Not long after the peaceful Robot Monk was buffed, a buff that made him much more playable to those who could never get a hang of him (Ahem… me), it seems he’ll get a nerf in the next update, most likely on his discord orb.

Discussed on Overwatch’s forums on a thread called “Don’t Nerf Zenyatta“, Overwatch Principal Designer, Geoff Goodman, stated:

“Zenyatta is definitely playing a lot better these days. At this point anecdotal feedback, internal stats, and competitive feedback are all showing hes actually a bit *too* strong at the moment.

At this point we’re looking likely to reduce some of his power in an upcoming patch, probably related to his Discord Orb.”

Sigh… looks like I’m going back to being incredibly average…
