Hamtaro looks fun. I have literally no clue how he'll play, but his adaptive shield giving him 1000-1300 HP for 7 seconds makes for some crazy engage potential. It's like having an on-demand winston ult, except it gives the enemy no ult charge when they damage it.

Kind of feel bad for Rein though, if hamtaro becomes meta he'll be more of a liability on defense than anything. He can push Rein around and gains a huge boost if the team is grouped up around Rein's shield. Ham's ult seems really powerful against Rein/Orisa too, considering how slow they are; just setting up the mines in front of Rein will either kill him or force him to put down his shield and charge away, leaving the team without a tank.

I don't play Overwatch but I approve of anything with a playable hamster. Good job Blizzard.

Kind of feel bad for Rein though

Rein hasn't been relevant for a while but that's ok because that's how OW is balanced.

Rein is pretty relevant right now though, he's one of the most picked characters. Doesn't stop him from having some inconsistencies from bugs, however...

Aye. Rein still very much has a place in Overwatch; though, it is a smaller place than what it used to be.

There's a reason I'd joke among friends by referring to rein as just "Rectangle"

Granted, that's the whole point of the character, but I've always had more fun hammering people than being mobile cover for the team.  Just like his short.

Yeah, having what is basically a super fat, bus-sized Hog strapped to the front of your team to soak up the hits while your team pours through a choke is pretty invaluable. He just feels pretty awful to play past a certain skill point, where having "fun" with Rein's other abilities is punished too harshly. If there's a significant enough skill disparity the two teams of DPS players you can't even really play Rein, as nothing will get done with your shield up and you (or your team) will get vaporized with the shield down.

I really loved Rein when I started, and played him quite a bit during my first season of competitive, but that was before Brig, Orisa, DF (feels naughty using that acronym on B12 tbh), and Moira. He still works, but you have to be a bit of a masochist to want to hold RMB all day.

He's still got more than a use on Payload maps and the like though. I would want no one else in those final pushes to get Payload in those last few meters. There is also a wonderful strategy on the Russian map where the whole team goes all-in on the left. By the time the enemy team knows what is going on, someone is paste up against the wall and the rest of your team is blitzing in behind you.

Usually a Mercy. I have the dandiest of luck when it comes to charging Mercy.

According to my gameplays as supports, Reinhardt is an assassin hero.

hamtaro is really very powerful. If he becomes a meta then it would be really very nice for the team. rein is very dangerous and I also think that he will kill him.
