The first major patch post Overwatch release has had some significant effects on multiple heroes. We have analyzed data taken from three million competitive games with an average skill rating of 60. It’s important to understand how the patch has effected key heroes. D. Va and Zenyatta have been the biggest winners with key stat increases as well as boosts in win rates. Soldier: 76 and Mercy have been the biggest losers as result of the nerfs they received. Interestingly enough McCree wasn’t as overpowered as everyone perceived with a sub 50% win rate.
We've created a graph of the hero pick rates from the past weekends tournaments. Each hero is listed with the total playtime in minutes that they were used in the tournaments. From this data we can create tier lists.
S Tier: McCree, Zenyatta, Lucio
A Tier: Genji, D.Va, Reinhardt, Zarya
B Tier: Winston
C Tier: Reaper, Mercy, Roadhog, Tracer, Soldier: 76
F Tier: Junkrat, Ana, Torbjorn, Pharah, Widowmaker, Mei, Bastion, Hanzo, Symmetra
