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.

Hey everyone!

We are currently working on re-doing and updating all of our Overwatch guides, with a new format to boot! The guides will be targeted towards all players, with tips being useful for new players and veterans alike, regardless of skill rating.

With this new update, you will also see guides created for the three heroes we currently do not have guides for (Orisa, Ana and Sombra).

For those wondering, I will be taking over the writing of the guides and you should see the first guides and updates being released in the near future.

Thanks for your patience!
