Ahahahahhaah you legitimately believe Reaper should be a good hero in league play. Oml. Anyways everyone knew the Reaper changes would be pub stomp only and pretty much everyone said “please don’t do this”. That’s Bliz balance in a nutshell tho. If you can’t see why Reaper will be a league potato without completely insane numbers or some aspect of his kit reworked I can’t help you. People have game sense, good positioning, good call outs, good cooldown management and good aim. For the exact reasons you’re saying " if Reaper good in gold why no good do in league" is basically why he’s going to tap out somewhere on the ladder. The increasing teamwork, mechanical skill, prediction etc benefits other heroes dramatically more than Reaper who is countered by all of these more than he gets out of them. He’s a classic case of having too low a skill ceiling to be good in pro play without being completely broken on the ladder (and basically ruining pub games).
For Pharah the problem isn’t hitting a hero with pharah. It’s landing three direct shots in a row against a healer that is intermittently speed boosted. And before you yourself die (and landing 200 damage to a discorded pharah is something Dva can do in under a second). If you think you’ll win any fight at pro level because you landed direct hits on a tank Idk what to say. Maybe if they afk and the lucio and Brig walk far enough away from them?
Mei is not bad. Junkrat is theoretically not bad and better now with the dva nerfs. There are many variants of goats comps that have worked. There have been many attempts to play various 2-2-2. Or sym bastion. Or pharmercy. Or sombra. Or multiple dps. Or dozens of other strategies. Literal hundreds of games between T1 teams. If something worked against goats with any consistency the team who figured it out (just like the team who figured out goats) would be over the moon practising a comp that no one was ready to counter. I think if any really consistent strategy has been found S2 is where it’s going to get sprung. And it might just (here’s hoping). And it might only be possible now with the rally and matrix nerfs. But here’s hoping.
But you just sound like a classic case of a completely average player who thinks pros are there on mechanics only. That pro teams who scrim all day, review vods, have coaches, attempt and refine strategies in scrims, etc just won’t ask a uniquely insightful individual like you “hey bro what counters goats in 2500sr?” If they just did that they’d be like “oh man why did we never think of that, try that and lose with that consistently despite many variations of it? Why didn’t a single one of the league coaches push us hard to learn this seemingly obvious counter?”
This kind of stuff just sounds like a god complex. A good understanding of the game with strong ult tracking, positioning and call outs can easily get you to masters. Beyond that you still don’t need particularly strong mechanics to continue climbing with certain heroes. There’s certain phenomenal tank mains that have placed plat when they try to pick up dps. But at a league level that player has incredible instincts, timing, positioning, decision making, and general understanding of the game. Your over simplification of pros as “good at mechanics, bad at understanding the game” is painfully common. If you understood the game a third as well as the average pro you’d be low masters by default without any checks on your mechanics. Again it’s too bad they lack your insight
