This guide is our first to use the new format and style that we will be moving all the old guides to in the future. Feel free to leave any feedback here!

New format looks great. Clearer, easier to read, and the counters/synergies section is really useful.

Did notice though that while Orisa is displayed under Tank Heroes from the toolbar, the breadcrumb path lists her under Support (Homepage > Overwatch > Support Heroes > Orisa)

Really glad to hear it! 

There are a few smaller formatting issues that I'm going to resolve in the near future (including the path issue!), so thanks for pointing it out :p

So i freely admit I haven't checked the competitive rankings or statistics however, I have a few question/things to point out with orisa.

As far as synergies go, does she not have amazing synergy with both bastion and Torbjorn? In competitive mode myself and with other players Orisa is used as a hard point defender. So on secure objective you park her in a corner, shoot the protective barrier in front of her, and she's basically untouchable, sit a torb or a bastion in there with her and it takes full enemy team pressure to take that down. Especially with strategic use of halt. In addition the cooldown on protective barrier is relatively short so in many times under low to mild assault you simple reset it on the ground and it returns to its full defensive capability unlike reinhardt who has more of a recharge time once his shield breaks.  

The same synergy works very well for defend the payload type maps too. This is further increased with her ult, slam that badboy down behind a fresh wall barrier and now orisa herself becomes a huge disruption threat let alone if she has any help with her.

So i think turtling with Orisa makes her an incredible threat and if you use cooldowns properly she's a pretty sturdy tank. Fortify can help you survive many characters ults (im looking at you hanzo, F you and your stupid dragon). The only place where Orisa sort of struggles in attack payload missions, she can do fine there but not too well. There are also a couple maps where she cannot turtle properly.

Now I freely admit to never having completed a season higher than master (got grand once and deterioriated >_< ). So at grandmaster above more elite players may just nuke her on sight. However, I think her turtle strategy gives her a bit more value. You just have to really be smart with your abilities and embrace corners, corners are your friend.

She does synergise well with those.

Though, neither of those are meta. I've seen the strat work a couple of times on Numbani defense, where setting up on the highground causes problems for incoherent teams. That said, dive comps should honestly get it down quite easily with just a smidge of teamwork.

The line that i figured would be my downfall. Felt it would be worth a shot to mention them but if not in the competitive meta I understand the omission.

Well, I figure it's an oversight, especially considering the meta rarely actually translates into competitive play, and it is a guide. As I mentioned, they do synergise. :p

The sad part is that I'm probably better at English than my native language. I tend to just write stuff that comes to mind and send the reply, afterwards I see all the mistakes so I end up having to do loads of edits instead. :p

Orisa can deal a huge amount of damage against large and stationary targets due to her massive ammo clip

Small thing. She doesn't use a clip. A better term would be "ammo capacity", because she really doesn't use a magazine either.

I'll try fix the wording to something more appropriate. Thanks for letting me know! :)
