“Cheers Love, The Calvary’s Here!” – Hero Discussion: Tracer

Content of the article: "“Cheers Love, The Calvary’s Here!” – Hero Discussion: Tracer"

Welcome to the continuation of the Subreddit Anomalies – Hero Discussions 2020, where we feature in 2020 & beyond a rotating hero discussion randomly when the HotS devs rework or release a new hero that is the talk of the town, the Reddit community demands a hero discussion, or the mods feel sufficiently compelled to create one based on community feedback or engagement.


This week we feature Tracer who is classified as a Ranged Assassin in the new Blizzard Roles system. In May 2020, Tracer received a talent & balance rework that caused the hero to have imbalanced sustainability, the following balanced patch addressed that issue. Currently in organized play, there is concern that combining Leeching Rounds at Level 4 and Jumper at 16 is bugged due to the hero gaining more leech than intended. There was a Tracer Hero Discussion on September 6th, 2018.

We no longer have the HGC, but there is still organized play coordinated by Heroes Lounge and Nexus Gaming Series that can give us a glimpse into builds and comps that work well with Tracer prior to the balance changes. Heroes Lounge recent matches can be found on their EU & NA season sites and NGS hosts their meta on Heroes Profile.

Tracer's popularity on the HotS ladder based on Heroes Profile(Link) and HotsLogs(Link) is high (13% w/5% Ban rate) and recently their win rate is dipping a little .25% to 54% over the past seven days.
