Nerf to Hanzo's Storm Arrow
It seems like Hanzo's Storm Arrow ability will be having its damage lowered soon.

We’re reducing the damage per arrow from 80 to 70, which not only drops them out of one-shot territory for 200 hp heroes (w/ dmg boost), but also drops them out of one-shot range of 150 heroes such as Tracer and D.Va pilot.

The ability will still be very strong overall, but this change should help mitigate the most frustrating element of fighting against it. We’re looking at getting this change up onto the PTR soon.

    ??? They dont put content in these boxes Expecting anything. most people will get them for free from just leveling especially the epic ones, thats how lootboxes work

    If you think it looks good then you are the one with bad taste. It looks like garbage. Someone made some fanart with that hairstyle and was able to make it look pretty good but on the model itself it looks terrible.

    I kind of like the Tracer skin simply because it makes me think Blizzard is giving a tribute to One Punch Man with a resemblance to Lightning Max

    Yikes.

    Glad to see the Hanzo nerf.
