A grand total of 19 nerfs and it looks like she might have finally been put in the grave. I don't know what all ranks of play are looking like, but I never see her in Quick Play or Competitive anymore. I'm not defending the abhorrent state she was released and was in for a while, but at this point it seems pretty excessive. Unfortunately it seems that Blizzard has dug themselves into a hole when trying to balance Brigitte as she's too easy to play to give her serviceable healing. As tempting as it is to say she deserves it because of how OP she was a couple of years ago, I just want to see a more balanced hero that is fair to play and fight against. If we just start "deleting" heroes the game gets smaller and less interesting. There might be a glimmer of hope for some major balancing shifts to occur in Overwatch 2. For now though, she may join the likes of Bastion in the graveyard of forgotten heroes.
