"Generally speaking, as a defense hero, Junkrat shines on the Defense side of maps, but he is not exactly crippling on Attack."

"As we said, though, Junkrat is not necessarily a crippling choice on Attack. "

--> This really confused me.  Do you mean:

a) he's not crippling to his own team (because people assume Junkrat the defense character would suck on Attack, so this needs to be clarified that he isn't a big handicap to his team at all?); or

b) he's not crippling to the enemy team, meaning he's just not very effective at all at Attack?

Which team is he not crippling?

We mean, that he's not necessarily bad in Attack. We'll reword it to make sure it's more easily understood :)

Worth noting that D-Va's projectile blocking ability cancels your grenades and your mine if they pass through her ability. Also be careful activating riptire near a ledge, it pushes your player model back slightly and WILL make you fall.

these points are both valid and the latter one is definitely worth mentioning in the guide. the one for the d'va's defense matrix is not really worth mentioning otherwise you should put that same line in every hero guide. that defense matrix swallows everything as far as I can tell. except channeled weps maybe. or mei's left click.

just my humble opinion

The mine getting eaten as you throw it was a surprise to me, though I could see how adding that to guides gets unwieldy. Thanks for the feedback.

Any projectile will be eaten by the matrix, as long as it travels in the air. Same goes for Genji's deflect. You can absorb/reflect Soldier's heal even.

      Season 9 End (source)
      Hey everyone,
      Season 9 of Competitive Play is coming to an end soon, so we wanted to lay out a few key dates and important pieces of information regarding the upcoming season roll.
      DATE AND TIMES
      Season 9 will officially end on Friday, April 27 at 5:00 p.m. PT (Saturday, April 28 at 00:00 UTC). Season 10 is currently scheduled to launch three days later on Monday, April 30 at 5:00 p.m. PT (Tuesday, May 1 at 00:00 UTC).

If you are placed within the Top 500 players on your platform (and in your region) at the end of the season, you’ll receive an extra player icon and animated spray on top of the other seasonal rewards.
      Aside from sprays and icons, you’ll also receive a number of Competitive Points based on the maximum skill rating you achieved during the season.
      Here’s the Skill Rating (SR) to Competitive Point (CP) breakdown for Season 9:
      SR 1-1499 (Bronze): 65 CP

      Symmetra has never really been in what you might call a good place, even disregarding portal trolls and such. She's already received a number of overhauls (both large and small), but this time it seems her upcoming rework is going to be the biggest ever and might significantly change how she plays.
      In an interview with Inven Global, Lead Software Engineer Timothy Ford revealed that the major changes would also make Symmetra a defense hero:
      The rest of the interview goes into detail on Retribution and the Archives event in general, Hanzo changes, Avoid as Teammate and more, so check it out.
