Overwatch Reinhardt

Charge can be cancelled by pressing right click

Thanks for the comment, but I think this is just not true. It wasn't the case on the Beta when I played Reinhardt, and I've asked around and everyone seems to agree that there's no way to stop the charge (short of, you know, charging into something). I'll check again once the game is live.

I know that i'm super late, but Reinhardt's charge movement speed has the highest speed rate in the whole game, He moves 16.5m/s during it, meanwhile you said "It's not that fast", in fact, you should worded it as "Takes quite a time to blast off", because Charge takes 0.75s (?) to activate.

The charge is cancelled if you're hit by Roadhog's chain hook. You are then pulled to him as normal for that ability.

A few things to update.  You cannot cancel a charge once you have started it.  You can navigate quite a bit.  It is fast but it takes a chunk of time to get it started and anyone paying attention will notice and move out of the way so do it when the enemy is distracted or they have no choice such as being in a narrow hall with you.  Hammer swing and immediate follow up of fire strike is a great combo. in general being a good Reinhardt means putting your team first.  Get kills if you can but protect your team.

Edit - where do you see info on being able to cancel charge? I can't find it.

Nicoman made the comment that you could cancel the charge.  I just wanted to reiterate that you cannot cancel (As much as I wish you could sometimes).

Ah, I see! Yeah, that was at an earlier point in the game's history. You did used to be able to cancel it right at the end of the beta phase. It was changed shortly before launch.

      Another great feat for Blizzard! Overwatch won the title "Game of the Year" at Dice Awards 2017 and beat Battlefield 1, Inside, Pokemon Go & Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.
      Aside from that three additional awards went out for the game, securing a total of 4 awards for Blizzard, the same amount as Naughty Dog got for their Uncharted 4: A Thief's End game title.

      Wildcard24 makes some great WoW-themed skins for OW, as well as some SC and Diablo ones! As usual Rein and Reaper win.
       
      As you can see from the image above, wildcard24 really knocked it out of the park on these skins, making us yearn for some Blizzard-game themed events to come to Overwatch so we can see something like them. And there's a special one for everyone's favorite in WoW/maybe not so favorite in OW - Leeroy Genji:

      He even got the usual pattern of official event skin priority right: Reinhardt must have the very best one, and then the rest can be whatever, with one or two standouts (in this instance Pharah and Junkrat). He also made some options for other Blizz games:
      Starcraft:

      Diablo:

      Seriously, look at that Reaper and Zarya! We need to get this Blizzard-games event thing happening right away! Definitely check out the rest of wildcard24's art here.
