Bastion is "too powerful right now", says Overwatch director

Overwatch public enemy number one, Bastion, was changed on Tuesday this week. The robot was supposed to become less of a glass cannon, losing some ranged accuracy and therefore damage in exchange for manoeuvrability and survivability. But now people are having a hard time killing Bastion at all.

These Bastion changes were tested by players on the Public Test Realm, which means Blizzard must have been confident before going live. So it’s weird – and mightily refreshing – to see game director Jeff Kaplan hold his hands up days later and admit Bastion feels “too powerful right now”.
