Roadhog loses his only good thing and now he's trash? They could never see it coming! I mean Roadhog has other amazing abilities such as...his self-heal? Yeah I'm not surprised if he's ignored now: he was good only for killing smaller heroes and now he can barely do that, and unless they make him more defense oriented he'll just sit in the hero pool getting dust. I mean why would you pick a roadhog now, when almost every other tank is more useful than him?

TBH, I've tried. I really tried to make him work. I was like "thos metasheep are crying for nothing look at me" And then, I hooked a couple of Lucios and Soldiers, and just could keep them. I hook them, I shoot at them, and they just don't die, and I'm here the dick in the wind and I felt totally useless. The nerf to his damage coupling to the previous nerf to his hook (ie your target landing farther than before) make hims legitimately useless. The whole thing about Roadhog was to punish people with bad placement, now you can't do that, you don't do much damage and you are just a sand bag to the enemy team to charge their ult. Feels bad man.

If a 1-shot mechanic is such a damn problem might as well get rid of Hanzo's bullshit Scatter Arrow too lol

Buffing his damage would mean he'd have even more dps than he used to have... Do we really need that when he used to be such a mega hero who won most 1v1 duels against more than half the overwatch roster? He could only not 1 shot tanks for crying out load! Now because he's more in line with the other heroes people are crying, he's my second most played hero and i'm glad he's nerfed.
Fred Fredburger on 29. Jun. 2017.
of course his win rate is gonna go down they changed him in a way that means he has to be played different, its going to take some time for people to get used to playing him, he is no longer huge burst damage and is now more sustained damage. yes it is harder to one shot the small targets he could before but he is really good at taking tanks and staying in a fight and doing lots of damage because he doesn't need to reload as often. i personally think this is a change that needed to be made because it was way too much that he could one shot 2/3 of the characters in the game so easily with no real chance of escape if he hooks you, you were going to die. his hook was dodgeable but there are so many times where a completely lucky hook or random blind hook with no skill involved could shut someone down instantly

Blizzard: Alright. So we heard people complain about the changes to Roadhog, and we agree. Which is why we removed his hook entirely, and now he has no Shift! That's what you wanted right?
bleunt on 29. Jun. 2017.
Good. The game has never been better. Fuck one shot kills.
Endorsi Hidei on 29. Jun. 2017.
'If I cant oneshot hook I wont play him" everyone that quit playing Roadhog
Kieran Bowditch on 29. Jun. 2017.
His combo could be made more reliable without increasing his overall damage by simply giving the hook itself a damage buff, right?
Gabriel Meunier on 29. Jun. 2017.
why on earth should i play hog when he's legit one of only heros who could lose me entire teamfights n games just cuz i'm getting swarmed by dps also why would i play hog when he's legit the only hero pigeonholed into hugging my team when legit no other hero cept maybe rein has to do that and he has a bloody 2k hp shield so it's not like he's dying or feeding ults legit hog is just a giant liability now, gotta be care who you hook cuz they want to jam their guns in your face farm ultis legit its like plz hook me hog now. and not to mention you hook reaper dva many more they either imidiately peace out nuke you for ulti or pop death blossom/dva bomb n fk you for hooking them no thanks i legit pick any other hero in the game and can flank like a retard without the destructive downsides and i get a free get out of jail ability winston jump sombra translocator dva boosters etc. at least the other bottom pick rate heros have a niche they can be strong at unlike hog, bastion rips barriers

i feel like they should just reduce the cooldown on the hook back to 6 seconds
stop right there on 29. Jun. 2017.
rip roadhog mains
sixeswow on 29. Jun. 2017.
Sad to say, but he's pretty useless now. He was always a one trick pony, that was easily countered, but that trick was useful. He has next to nothing to bring to a team now, other than his large hit box and ability to feed enemy ults, neither of which is going to make people pick him.

the only thing that they should ve changed was the right click on shot , it was the only thing that seemed unbalanced

Rip my gold gun
Dan Phillips on 29. Jun. 2017.
This is because people haven't tried to adjust the style of play, that is necessary to use his new kit.
PrimGurney on 29. Jun. 2017.
He's not useless you just can't play him the same, he can still get kills but you need to be more careful and can't rely on getting hooks as the only way to get kills.
Flip ze Fox on 29. Jun. 2017.
*sniff* Roadhog rides... no more... *cries*
Gilbertoxo on 29. Jun. 2017.
Do people really think roadhog is all about his one shot ability? Seriously, get good and find another way to play him, it's not only about his one shot hook. Pulling someone away from their team is already is big impact to a fight, just tell your team who to target when you've hooked someone.
Gabor Hodossy on 29. Jun. 2017.
People calm down when his winrate fly down he will get buff instead. We will see which scenario will win.

Blizzard: Uhhh what if we made Roadhog bad Reaper?
Dusty 05 on 29. Jun. 2017.
They should have focused on nerfing the hook instead of his weapon, the only thing about his gun that was annoying was getting onehit from range with those bs headshots. They should have made the hook on a much longer cooldown (like doubled), but if you actually hit an enemy with it the cooldown is halved. That rewards skilled players and makes it easier to kill him once his hook is down.
Gintoms Gaming on 29. Jun. 2017.
at least symetra has the highest win rate
Howser on 29. Jun. 2017.
BREAKING NEWS!!!! LUCIO has a ONE SHOT COMBO!!! he just has to pre and post fire than boop and get assistance of his team LUL

ROADHOG RIDES NO MORE ;-;
Crafty K9 on 29. Jun. 2017.
Y'all need to chill. If you know how to play him in this new play style , he's fine. I didn't have much of a change.
D-man Bradley on 29. Jun. 2017.
His pick rate went down, but his win rate barely changed. Even during the "adjustment period" he's still got a near 50% win rate. I don't see how that makes him useless or in need of a buff. They just raised his skill cap. It's no different than what happened to Widow. They didn't become terrible, they just stopped being so OP that you can wipe half the enemy team before the team fight even started. If his win rate had dropped to like 20% or something, I could see the argument that they just ruined him. What more likely happened is that the brain-dead flanker Roadhogs that climbed higher than they should have without learning positioning and teamwork due to his OP one-shots got on losing streaks and dropped the character at all levels of play. That's why his pick rate dropped 6% and why his win rate had that dip. As people either give up the character or learn to use him properly, the win rate will likely go right back to 50% if not higher. Being able to pull a tank out of position, b

cant ez mode anymore qq
Jed C on 29. Jun. 2017.
Maybe try not putting his prior stats as the "norm" because ya, unless he gets buffed ANYTHING less than that is going to be worse than he was before..... that's kind of the point. D.va dropped after her nerf too, now everyone is playing her and she is in just about every match. The "meta" feeds into this too, as roadhog is hardly dive. Not to mention you can still get your one shot if you so much as clip somebody before hooking them. you can essentially fuse your shot with your hook so they all but fire at the same time, then proceed with the regular combo to solo kill any non tank just as before. Hell, before you could hook a d.va and two shot her out of mech through armor. don't try to tell me that's balanced.
Ryan Mangum on 29. Jun. 2017.
This is just like what happened to d.va, people just have to learn how to play him again.
Vayt on 29. Jun. 2017.
There is no point in picking him
Michael Wartnaby on 29. Jun. 2017.
Everyone cried about the D.va nerf but I am seeing her in almost every game now. Everyone adjusted and the meta changed so now she is back. Same thing will happen with hog.
SushiMudkip on 29. Jun. 2017.
I'm still playing quite well with roadhog, not as good as before, but not horribly bad
Zulu on 29. Jun. 2017.
Just get paladins.
Pac on 29. Jun. 2017.
The way his bigass gun shoots now looks like you hacked the game for shooting speed.
Autistic Torchic on 29. Jun. 2017.
Its really bad design to make the character who looks fat sluggish and slow but menacing into a fast shooter but weak as fuck damage. He feels very wrong.
Richie King on 29. Jun. 2017.
He didn't need such a big nerf, just reduce the hook range would have been enough
Adras Adraki on 29. Jun. 2017.
Meanwhile the vid is filled with 1shots xD. Im not saying roadhog is fine far from it but its fun to watch. About upping his utility how did they exactly do that? They mostly if not overly nerfed him. Idk if i was to suggest a buff i would give him a new passive kind of that works like bastions. "since he lived in astralia where the radioactive environment and shit made him toughter making him take less dmg overall?
P-Duck on 29. Jun. 2017.
They should have just decreased his hook range by like 40% instead of his damage.
Kaaz Lovaas on 29. Jun. 2017.
I feel like no one wants to take the chance on seeing whether they are good or not with the new RoadHog. D.va ,Zarya and Winston are safe picks. I remember when he used to kill tracers, now he only feeds a tracer.
Pippenpadleobsticapo on 29. Jun. 2017.
Honestly, lower the cooldown of the hook back down, that's all he's good for. If he can't one shot that often, make his utility something you can use more often.
Mikey oo on 29. Jun. 2017.
If you think a tank should be able to one shot people you're dumb, he needs skill to play now you can't 1v6 the whole team anymore. Play with your team as him and I'll bet you you'll see he's pretty decent
Aftertaste on 29. Jun. 2017.
Blizzard nerfed Roadhog to remove one shot. Yet they buffed Hanzo so he could one shot more frequently.
Zookeeper25 on 29. Jun. 2017.
I like the direction Blizzard is trying to take Roadhog - now he requires more skill with the gun and is less reliant on cheap and easy one-shots. With a bit more tweaking he may become an entirely new hero.
Aftertaste on 29. Jun. 2017.
What do you mean Hog's useless? He's the perfect enemy ult battery.
The best of the west on 29. Jun. 2017.
Idk what they were thinking with this nerf, instead of making his weakness worse they make his strength worse high risk low reward (not my words from a video but forgot were it was from)
