    Rhein w/out support is tough and mostly useless.. Doesn't matter how many hp you have if the other team just focuses you down... If I'm getting smeared as Rhein I will usually switch to Dva for her range and mobility... As Rhein, if you are the sole tank about the only chance you have is with a Mercy stuck to you. Otherwise DVa or Zarya are nice 2nd tanks that compliment Rhein well when on Def.. Roadhog & Dva on attack imo.

    It did yesterday but only in quickplay. I just played 3 games but wasn't able to grab the new tank yet. Definitely changes things as the stationary wall is really nice for defending. I was able to kill her when she was in the open pretty easy (with DPS).

    I got on the new tank 2x, gonna take some learning. The shield seemed awesome tho, and I know I'll love to use her second ability to pull people from behind cover.. But could definitly tell she's on the squishy side for a tank... (but really, every tank out in the open gets smoked).

    I got in another match where someone else was playing her well. They had another tank, Dva I think to help block incoming, but the new tank was kinda hanging back and deploying her shield about 20m out front of the group and most the dps was actually in front of her.

    I like Orisa on the Attack side of escort/ctf. Some of Rheins capabilities with the shield, but the ability to do ranged attack to help push back the Def. can be a useful addition. Need good support and some heals tho or you will get smoked by any organized attack. Had a few good rounds with her, used her well to cap a few flags by getting in a corner with the shield out, little mini bubble for everyone to gather under. I will use her power-up just as the shield drops and by the time it ends another shield should be up.

    If the def is smart and is swarming I will always go back to Rhein for his hammer to clear out close-range Def tactics.

    Pecking away at placement matches for the new season. 1-2 so far. Trying to play DPS as support supposedly doesn't place as high. I still think solo que is a coin flip in placement and competitive.

    Yeah it certainly is. I was on a winning team last night that almost blew it because people started switching up classes for no reason, then suddenly we had 3 dps and I'm getting smoked as the tank due to no heals. Went from 2-0 to 2-2.... I shamed everyone into going back to the classes we started with (lol) and then we finished up with the win... Frustrating... Its amazing how many insist on playing dps that suck at it. Especially the squishy classes, they literally do nothing if they cant get kills. I cant count the times I'm leading with a gold in damage while playing Rhein...

    Yeah one of my losses we had a guy that refused to not play sniper on offense.
