    I wouldn't say it was a big nerf at all. The swift strike should have been interrupted by traps in the beginning and its really not that much of a problem double jump won't reset on a wall climb. It'll only affect very little areas of the map (Volskya requiring a swift strike to get through first major shortcut instead of double jump wall climb double jump) and the Ult Duration needed a nerf anyways. I do think the changes to the double jump was unnecessary though.

    Also dont forget Zenyatta had the biggest nerf. his orbs used to stay on the target until they died or he put the orbs on someone else. It made his 100% pick rate in tournaments to nearly 0% pick rate

    I swear though McCree has got to be the most readjusted Hero ever. I think what, the last 3 updates they made changes to him?

    They've been nerfing and buffing him like crazy. Next patch will make it so your Ult will drain to 0 when you use it, even if it is cancelled.

    Aside from jumping, Genji nerfs feels too weak on PTR.
    Seagull teammate Shadder2k played 10/10 wins in placement matches solo on PTR, got 4k rating (Grandmaster - top tier) and got gold eliminations and damage in all games.

    Genji aside, Hanzo is a new cancer in PTR.

    p.s. forgot to post this: GENJI - the FUN deliverer! (not mine)

    Let me copy my post from US forum discussion:
    Don't be discouraged by Genji nerfs, he's still strong + now you have easier time to land Shurikens -> which lead to faster ultimate charge & easier time /w headshots.

    That doesnt really say much other then people who are professionals are still professional. When you see someone like Shadder2k play Genji it doesnt mean everyone else will play at the same level. Its the same as how Seagull used to play a lot of Hanzo, he could just eliminate someone the moment they leave spawn in a single arrow but it doesnt mean that every other Hanzo player can do the same thing.

    Yeah its true, the Genji nerfs isnt that bad. However..they need adjustments. And since this is the PTR, these may not be the final adjustments. Tbh, the ult should be 7 seconds, and the triple jump may or may not make a return.

    I'll actually take back what I said about Genji not being affected too much by the nerf after playing the PTR for a while. The removal of Triple Jump (Jump reset on wall climb) is actually massive. It removes the ability for him to move behind enemy lines safely (Ex: Hollywood shortcut) and forces him to play very defensively on the ground because he cant triple jump anymore, meaning that he is more prone to getting headshot (They only need to aim at him on the X-Axis instead of both the X and Y Axis). Everything else is fine but the removal of the Jump reset on wall climb is a massive mobility nerf.

    I guess everyone just has to be that much more pro with him. Forget his 3 star difficulty they should bump it up to 4 lol
