Out of no where and for no legitimate reason, Blizzard decided to nerf our beloved Roadhog into extinction and then once BLizzard realized they made a mistake, they are now proposing buffs that completely change the role of Roadhog served way too late into the Overwatch's development. Roadhog served a critical part of the meta and there are countless Roadhog mains that have quit Overwatch as their favorite hero was essentially taken from them which is totally unjustifiable on Blizzards behalf. Once Roadhog was nerfed, the meta of the game on all skill levels changed. Winstons and DVAs are not uncontested whilst Roadhog is completely absent from the game. The proposed buffs change the role of Roadhog to slug that is slightly harder to kill that can't get kills himself. Meanwhile, Tracer and the buffed reaper hard counter this proposed version of Roadhog rendering him useless once again.

The purpose of this petition is to coax Blizzard to revert the old Roadhog back to what it once was. The old Roadhog wasn't broken. It is easily hard countered. It kept DVA and Winston in check. And it was a lot of fun to play. For me personally, it was the reason why I played Overwatch.

If Blizzard insists on nerfing the old Roadhog, just simply reduce damage to 90% or 95% and reduce the hook length. Maybe increase hook cool down as well. But for the love of god, please don't completely uproot Roadhog and change the rule he fulfilled within the game. He was deeply inbedded within the meta in ways the balance team and just starting to realize.
