In a thread simply titled "Don't nerf Zenyatta," Goodman had some bad news:
"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."
As for Mei, Goodman only thinks a tweak to her ultimate ability is necessary. "Currently her ult can feel a bit unwieldy and inconsistent, especially when you compare it to other similar ults such as Reinhardt's. We're internally testing allowing the ultimate projectile she throws to pierce barriers (such as Reinhardt's shield), and increasing the radius a bit on it."
Mercy has been a topic of conversation for some time now. Ideas of buffing her alternate fire haven't worked, and there have even been attempts at changing her abilities. A new E ability put a slow heal over time effect on everyone around the target, but never saw the light of day.
"If she were to get a new ability it would ideally have to be something that she could use more 'outside of combat' or something that is generally used much more rarely," said Goodman. "That said there are some things we can do to help her out in the near future."
In other news, the game has now passed 15 million players, and a World Cup has been announced. The next Overwatch animated short, which will feature Bastion, is scheduled to arrive next week at Gamescom.
