Hi, hopefully I can clear some of the number stuff up.
Symmetra does 65/130/195 damage per second at each respective charge level against non-armored health pools.

Against the original armor calculation (-5 dmg per hit) this got a flat 25 DPS reduction and a 15 DPS reduction after the armor changes to -3 per hit.

So with this current PTR patch, at level 1 charge you gain +2 DPS versus armor, at level 3 you lose 24 DPS compared to before (now 156, previously 180).

This ends up being a difference of about .17 seconds in time to kill 200 armor health. We’ll see if this ends up being significant or not and go from there. I will say there wasn’t any specific intent to reduce Symmetra’s power.

But Talon would not let him go. Baptiste knew too much, and they sent operatives after him to silence him. Agent after agent came for him, including Baptiste’s former comrades. To stay under the radar, Baptiste drifted from place to place, aiding in humanitarian efforts around the globe. The few Talon members who managed to track him down were never seen again.


Hey there!
Armor used to have a varying effect on damage over time and beam type weapons based on how damage instances were handled by the server (it’s not the server tick rate, some weapons have different update rates).

This meant that Winston’s primary fire would hit the maximum 50% damage reduction against armor because it had a faster damage update rate while Zarya’s beam would lose a flat 15 damage per second (after the armor change from -5 damage per hit to -3).

So the general results after this patch are Winston’s damage is increased against armor compared to before, Moira is about the same, Zarya and Symmetra are roughly the same at low charge and deal less damage to armor health pools than before while at high charge.

Communication is key, especially in Competitive. If haters harass you because of the sound of your voice then they’re sabotaging their chances to achieve victory in the match. If you’re constructively communicating, your heart is in the right place. You’re being competitive.

At one point we all had the squeak or teenage voice fluctuations. Stay the course and speak your mind; if they’re trying to bring you down they’re already below you.
