A balance update aimed at making Tracer just a tad less overpowered will be hitting Heroes of the Storm, Wednesday May 4th. According to the developers, the character has been doing far too well in every area and required a few changes. They're lowering her health and attack damage and increasing the cooldown on one of her abilities.

Included in the changes are a variety of bonus increases, a nearly 70 point health decrease, and a .25 health regeneration decrease.

  • Health decreased from 1270 (+4% per level) to 1206 (+4% per level).
  • Health Regeneration decreased from 5.25 (+4% per level) to approximately 5.02 (+4% per level) Health per second.
  • Basic Attack damage reduced from 29 (+4% per level) to 27 (+4% per level).
  • Focus Fire (Talent)
    • Final shot damage bonus increased from 30% to 35% of the total magazine’s damage.
  • Locked and Loaded (Talent)
    • Damage bonus increased from 35% to 40%.
  • Melee (W)
    • Pulse Strike (Talent)
      • Pulse Bomb charge bonus increased from 15% to 20%.
  • Recall (E)
    • Cooldown increased from 24 to 26 seconds.
    • Slipstream (Talent)
      • Cooldown reduction decreased from 4 to 2 seconds.

More information on the update is available on Battle.net.

Was obvious. P2W exposed through preordering a game which most people didn't even want in the first place and haven't even bothered playing since they purchased it. Truth be told that the only people who have fun with this game is paying customers. None of them believed Tracer was overpowered.
