On the subject of hero adjustments in Overwatch, a recent sore spot has been based on the overhaul of Mercy, which at one point not only made the support hero overpowered, but also made her practically dwarf the powers of fellow healer, Ana.
Ana was subject to heavy nerfing after she was introduced into the game, which heavily affected her popularity and selection ratio in Competitive Play. What’s worse for Ana mains, it now appears as if she has been nerfed once again.
User WarGoat posted proof of issues with her projectile, posting the following evidence whilst playing against bots.
It must be difficult for Ana mains to understand why Blizzard are seemingly consistently nerfing Ana. She was considered one of the most popular heroes once she was first introduced to the expansive Overwatch roster. However, the consistent changes have made it difficult for her to find herself among the more powerful and effective characters that players are choosing over her.
Whilst this proof provided against bots, it is a shame to see that Ana is once more being involved with nerfing, though it may not actually be the case. Recently, Blizzard addressed an unintentional nerf for Lucio, which was picked up by the developers and confirmed to be a bug in the PTR. This could also be the case for Ana, since the PTR looks to be riddled with a number of bugs that are affecting heroes.
We are awaiting confirmation on whether or not Ana has officially been nerfed, or if it is indeed just a glitch in the PTR.
