Blizzard Devs Nerf Moira In “Overwatch” After Community Complaints

It appears Moira players are going to be cursing the Overwatch community as a whole for a while after public outcry got the hero nerfed. It all started a while ago when the devs decided to give her a bit of a buff to her fade ability, which is basically a quick teleport in any direction the player chooses. The buff that they gave her was the ability to get out of sticky situations, such as being stunned, since Moira is more of a squishy healer than a DPS. That quickly angered a number of players as they saw her being stunned frequently and being able to run like hell without getting the kill on her. Here’s a perfect example of what we’re talking about.

This apparently annoyed the community so much that they complained enough to get the developers to nerf her again with the latest update. The reason it’s newsworthy is that Overwatch, while they do care about their players, generally don’t just change characters abilities based on complaints. If they did, Mercy wouldn’t be such a mess and they wouldn’t have kept Symmetra as broken as she is compared to how she used to be. So for many of us, this is a first when it comes to seeing a character be changed. But if this is what they’re going to do from now on, we have a suggestion. Change Symmetra back and leave Moira alone!!!
