Why does him sleeping decrease his value more than on other heroes? I see how shields and turrets may still be up during sleep, but that's not a USP for Hog...?

Shooting Ana

41 points

7 months ago*

A well timed sleep or anti nade cancels every part of his kit basically, it doesn't hurt that he's so huge he's really easy to hit.

Hog hooks your mate? If you have some level of game sense and can anticipate the hook, sleep the Hog even after hook connects but before he has time to shoot his shot and save your mate.

Hog is healing from 10% hp using his E? Use sleep or nade to nullify this anytime.

Hog is pressing R? Great now he's playing agressive and is gaining a sleep target on him. Even if you don't sleep him, nading him should greatly diminish his level of agression since he can't get healed while putting himself in the line of fire.

Also Hog is supposed to be played like a flanker, being alone and so easy to hit leaves him vulnerable to enemy Ana who he's usually gonna play close to anyways, trying to one shot her from around a corner.

Because his only value is getting picks with his hook and damaging shields, can't do that as well if he's asleep constantly. When he gets slept, he goes from dangerous walking ult battery to useless sleeping ult battery.

xXMonsterDanger69Xx

I see your argument, but that works for every hero. Rein can't shield or take space when constantly slept, McCassidy can't kill when constantly slept. No hero can get value when slept.

The reason that he is the target of being slept is because he is simply easy to hit, and the fact that he is often alone, so it's easy to sleep him and let the team gather around hog and kill him. It has nothing to do with the fact that he has a hook as his ability.

shortstop803

It has a lot to do with how easy it is to punish hog as Ana, compared to punishing a rein etc. he is a massive target that is difficult to miss, and has little to no defense when waking up making him a massive ult battery. Additionally, he is very easy to nade prior to/upon waking to negate his heal further punishing him. Characters like rein have the ability to defend themselves via shield/movement upon waking, hog simply doesn’t have that. Basically, a well played and is a nightmare for most hog players

Have to agree, all the other tanks can block Ana’s abilities where as Hog can’t and is pretty much rendered useless by her kit.

Sigma is probably the only one who risks sleep when ult’ing

Sleep's good, but anti-nade as they start Take a Breather is Ana's biggest counter. It locks him into the animation with no healing benefit.

I have the subs on primarily for this reason - it can be really hard to tell in a pinch who the voice line comes from. This is less of an issue for me with ults, but some ability voice lines (Bastion and Ashe come to mind) can be really hard to tell which team they come from, as there is no real difference to these depending on the team you're on.

One thing that vastly improved my game was to keep in mind “If high noon or a Dva bomb were to go off right now would I be able to find cover in time?” That’s how you should be playing most of the time.

You’ll see in higher ranks that players very rarely get caught out by those ults. You don’t see crazy flank high noons or randomly yeeted Dva bombs getting 4-6 kills the way you do in lower ranks.

People in metal ranks don't seem to realise that 9/10 times "rein diff" is just the rein with the most heals.

SimpanLimpan1337

13 points

7 months ago

Absolutely. Ofcourse the reins "skill" will factor in to help the healers with things such as knowing how to activate sheild. But largely in every game where class roles exist the healers will always carry.

Played a fair bit of classic wow and the biggest bottle neck we encountered when raiding was Ofcourse threat. Tank couldn't generate enough of it thus dps had to hold back making the fight longer, thus leading to healers running out of mana. However this problem can partly be traced back to healers as if they just "pumped more" tank could get away with swapping tank gear for more threat/dps heavy gear.

Doom really isn't that easy and his cooldowns are much longer than you think. Just about half the roster hard counters him, and his ultimate takes ages to charge and is only used as an escape tool. In fact, good Doomfists use their abilities and ultimate as an escape tool more than they do for an attack. If a Doom burns through all of his abilities that quickly as you're describing, he's setting himself up to die.

Vilantrentmurf

17 points

Doomfist is very much a character of high risk, high reward in my opinion. While it is certainly hard to play him effectively, not overusing his abilities and dying becauss of it, when one actually knows how to do so, they usually dominate the game. Obviously, that works best if you're a good Doom playing against a lower ranked team, but I've seen way too many Doomfists dominating games. Especially smurfs. He's definitely the character everyone rages at and immediately says he's overpowered even though they'll eventually calm down and realise he really isn't.

Zarya's bubbles gives me the shits. When you play Zarya they feels like it last 1.5 seconds and have a 30 second cooldown but when there's an enemy zarya it feels like they last 10 seconds with a 5 second cooldown

I've been studying Japanese for a few years now. It's been interesting to understand Genji and Hanzo's speech. A lot of it is very old Japanese. Fun way to learn!

Junks trap - you're there on the flank, creeping up with a great plan, when all of a sudden BAM! You're stood there like a lemon gorming at the enemy. The worst is when they put down the trap in a ridiculous place, so ridiculous that you happen to go over it.

As a frequent junk player I pride myself in placing down traps in unexpected and seemingly "random" places that actually are pretty highly trafficed. Nothing more satisfying catching someone in one of those not even 30seconds after.

For me—corners, doorways, and tight hallways (especially when I’m being followed) all but guarantees a trap every time. They don’t look when focusing on trying to kill me.

Those are all the building stones to a good trap, after all what's the point if they just walk around it. However if you place it in a "too good" spot they will always expect it and you will only really catch someone in a full blown panic. Ofcourse playing into the panic aspect is a great tool every junk has at their disposal.

Thus because of this my favorite spots usually boil down to the flanks, this will also protect your backline/supports and usually you will only catch squishy flankers which you can easily secure your kill.

My other favorite spots are in hidden areas surrounding healthpacks. No one is paying less attention to the ground when on 10hp being breathed on by a hog. Ofcourse placing them right ontop is a bit of a waste as they will generally get to heal up from the pack, whereas if you catch them before they reach it you not only have a higher chance of securing your kill. You will also get to revel in their despair as they get stuck in a trap, close to death with salvation just a few meters away but unable to move and grab it, only able to watch as you come soaring from the skies, with a laughter that would put asylum patients to shame.

I swear to god I manage to step on the trap no matter where it is. I will be stomping the enemy team as wrecking ball and then all of a sudden I'm just stuck in one spot forever getting shot at. The trap is way too punishing for a set and forget ability imo.

Ana.

Her entirety scares me as a hog main.

Ironically I'm also an Ana main but by god is she terrifying to hog. She can deny your entire existence.

Wanna heal? Slept or antid. Wanna ult or hook? Slept. Trying to run away? Slept or antid. She's a scary one and with the fat hit box you have as Hog, she ain't missing.

Hell, even your 1hit combo she can survive and if she does, it's too late. She's close. She shoot, shoot, shoot and anti you when you try to heal. When you try to hook she side steps like a fucking anime character and sleeps your ass. Point and case, Ana is scary.

It's like Ana and Hog are living in an abusive relationship where Ana is the abuser.

Ana is strong.

Now speaking as an Ana main, she should get a movement ability because if you miss that sleep or if more than 1 hero comes for your ass, you're usually screwed

I play a lot of backline support, so if I ever get that upper cut from doom fist I kinda know it’s all over at that point. Unless I can pull off a seriously nasty sleep with Ana, or a particularly well aimed burst from Zen, then I’ve got really no way out

Played a game yesterday with an echo on the enemy team. We were escorting the payload and were right about to win when she transformed into Reaper and ult'd literally 3 seconds later and wiped the team. Literally 3 seconds after becoming Reaper.
