Kotaku is getting called out across the internet right now for riding the wave of Overwatch news upon its release by bringing forth a list of what they consider to be the best Overwatch characters from worst to best.
To give you a little sense of what they're claiming they got the likes of:
Soldier 76, Bastion and Torbjorn as the three WORST characters.
Mercy, Mei and D.Va as the three BEST characters.
What the hell metric did they use?!
The trouble with their claim is that it's written as though they've never actually played the damn game. If they did they'd have more insight. Instead, this piece is written like they're just fans of the character's designs and aesthetics.
As anyone will tell you, Overwatch is terrifically balanced among all characters. While there's a bit of a rock-paper-scissors dynamic going into how each character is made to counter another in a massive, twisty food chain of sorts - they're all absurdly well balanced. There's no one character that's far and away better than the others. Never was. Never will be.
There's always going to be a character that's better suited for particular situations during particular games but no ONE hero holds more sway than the others.
Just check out this great Unit Lost breakdown video that further describes what we're talking about.
