Hey Vlad I been playing Solider 76 a Substantial amount and I think you forgot to mention the cool down they added after Sprinting. Its approximately 2 seconds after sprinting that you can use Helix Rockets  or  Heavy Pulse Rifle   which is a huge NERF as I used to be able to perfectly Time my Helix Rockets and Heavy Pulse Shots after a successful sprint to a good spot. This essentially puts us Solider's in a pinch when we attempt to sprint ahead and get a few quick kills. Kinda seems like they want us to camp as Soliders and sit back behind a shield BORRRING! Damn it @Blizzard that's why we can't have nice things.

Hey, I just looked at this in-game, and the delay seems to be much lower than 2 seconds. I'd say it feels like 0.3 seconds or so. A bit annoying to be sure, but it doesn't feel that gamebreaking. I'll play more and check. Thanks for letting me know.

You can remove the "disadvantes". Soldier does NOT require much skill to play at all, and if you didnt notice, that "prominent sound warning" is included in EVERY CHAMPIONS ULTIMATE, not only in his. Please try to actually play the champions b4 writing next time.

I think you are misunderstanding what the statement says. It isn't saying Soldier is hard to play, it says he has a high skill cap, which he certainly does. In games at very high ranks, the entire match is pretty much decided on Soldier vs. Soldier at the moment. If you can't track properly, can't aim well enough, there is no leniency. You don't have a scope, you don't have a spammable right-click with lenient spread, no stun or root to keep people in place. Either you can aim or you can't and that's where the skill cap emerges.

      One of the biggest PTR patches to date, today's new playground brings the massive Torbjörn rework, a fairly big one for Pharah as well, in addition some significant changes to Brigitte and McCree, and some less significant ones for Orisa, Mei and Solider 76. There's also the usual bug fixes, and you can read up on the Torbjörn changes in more detail here, as Geoff Goodman went into them in-depth.
      PTR September 22 (source)
      Colorblind Options Updates
      Customize how team colors are displayed in your UI (e.g. nameplates, HUD, health bars) and hero outlines with a set of nine different colorblind-friendly colors to choose from. You choose to colorize enemy and friendly UI separately as well. These options can be found under Options > Video > Color Blind Options. All changes made will be saved and ready for you to see in the next match you play!
      HERO UPDATES
      General
      Updated visuals for all shields and barriers to increase readability Brigitte
      Barrier Shield Shield health reduced from 600 to 500 Developer Comments: The health of Brigitte’s barrier was extremely difficult for most heroes to deal with even as she was able to close the distance with her targets. This change still provides Brigitte with substantial survivability but should also be more rewarding for opponents who pressure her.
      McCree
      Combat Roll Cooldown reduced from 8 to 6 seconds Developer Comments: Previously, the cooldown of McCree’s Combat Roll felt too restrictive, which sometimes prohibited players from using it. The new, faster cooldown should allow for more flexibility when choosing between using it for mobility or an instant reload.
      Pharah
      Concussive Blast Cooldown reduced from 12 to 9 seconds Rocket Launcher Attack speed increased Lowered recovery between shots from 0.9 to 0.75 Damage redistributed between explosion and impact Explosion damage reduced from 80 to 65 Impact damage increased from 40 to 55 Explosion knockback reduced by 20% Self-knockback range increased by 25% Developer Comments: We wanted to increase how responsive Pharah’s Rocket Launcher felt. Having almost a full second of recovery between shots made it feel sluggish. To balance out the improved recovery time, we shifted some of the damage from the rocket's explosion to the direct impact damage. The overall damage potential is now increased when landing direct hits and decreased slightly when only dealing explosive damage. We reduced the amount of knockback each explosion causes, as they made it very difficult to aim at Pharah while rockets came in at a faster pace. The Concussive Blast cooldown reduction should allow the ability to sync up more closely with the Jump Jet cooldown when used for mobility.
      Mei
      General Updated visual effects for all abilities Orisa
      Fusion Driver Maximum spread reduced from 1.5 to 1.2 Developer Comments: Orisa spends a significant amount of time firing her Fusion Driver from a relatively stationary location and the weapon's spread value caused it to feel too random when leading targets at a distance, taking into account the projectiles' travel time. We’ve tightened the spread slightly, which should leave her close- and mid-range damage potential largely unchanged, while making it feel better to try to hit targets at longer ranges.
      Soldier: 76
      Heavy Pulse Rifle Number of shots until max spread increased from 6 to 9 Developer Comments: Soldier: 76’s damage output was a bit low but not too far off from where we feel it should be. Making it take a few more shots to reach max spread smooths out the weapon spread curve and should help his damage be more consistent.
      Torbjörn
      General Reduced the size of Torbjörn’s head hit volume by 10% Rivet Gun Primary Fire Projectile speed increased from 60 to 70 per second Reload time reduced from 2.2 to 2 seconds Turret targets enemy hit by primary fire Alternate Fire Recovery lowered from 0.8 to 0.6 seconds Damage per shot lowered from 150 to 125 Reload time reduced from 2.2 to 2 seconds Spread randomization readjusted Forge Hammer Radius increased to align with Quick Melee Deploy Turret Now a thrown projectile Automatically builds over three seconds No longer has different levels Same damage output as previous level 2 turret Maximum health reduced from 300 to 250 Now incurs a 5 second cooldown when deployed Now incurs a 10 second cooldown when destroyed in combat No longer able to deploy a new turret if it’s in combat While the turret is firing If the turret has taken damage within three seconds Now able to destroy turret using the Interact input Now will complete self-building once deployed, even if Torbjörn is eliminated New Ability: Overload Replaces Armor Pack Lasts for 5 seconds (12 second cooldown) Temporarily grants 150 armor Increases attack, movement, and reload speed by 30% New Ultimate: Molten Core Switches weapon from Rivet Gun to his claw arm Lasts 6 seconds Fire up to 10 molten globules that create damage pools where they land for 10 seconds Bounces off walls and ceilings until coming into contact with the ground Base damage is 130 Damage increases from 130 to 190 against enemies who have armor Heroes affected by armor: Bastion, Brigitte, D.Va, Orisa, Reinhardt, Torbjörn, Winston, Wrecking Ball Heroes who can grant armor to their allies: Brigitte Developer Comments: Torbjörn was initially designed to be a specialized hero, intended to be a strong defensive option due to his armor-generating capabilities and ability to control areas with his turret. However, the scrap collecting and Armor Pack mechanics have proven to cause problematic gameplay issues through their feast or famine nature. In order to make the hero more flexible in a wide variety of situations, we’ve removed the scrap system, made the turret much easier to deploy, replaced the Armor Pack ability with Overload—a powerful self-buff—and transformed Molten Core into a powerful new area denial ultimate ability.
