Couple things I'm noticing with the current meta:

1. More comps with Lucio and Mercy on the same team.
2. A Pharah with a Mercy tailing her constantly.
3. McCree still fanning that hammer.
4. Winston is becoming more of a common sight, especially with KOTH and Payload gametypes.

Winston is great at killing low health teams (Tracer, Lucio, Mercy, etc). He was slept on because of his own low damage, but he can hit multiple people and doesnt need precision. He also can use electricity to go through shields!

Winston is really strong and always has been. Constantly I have been showing him off and getting big kill streaks because few know how to deal with him. He's a great anti-sniper. He does have trouble with shotgun heroes like Reaper, Roadhog, Dva and McCree, though.

Hanzo shouldn't even be on that side. There's no good sniping position right out of the gate.

Heck there's no good sniping position in any attack/payload gate. Hanzo should be on the other side!

Hanzo can annoy a Bastion or turrets though same with Widow.

So can Genji, Roadhog can pull him out of turret mode. Pharah can range him just as well as Hanzo and Widow. Point is, again, Offense will help more.

For those who haven't heard, Blizzard has announced a 30% damage reduction on Torbjörn's turrets on the console versions of Overwatch as players have less precise aiming, meaning less time to react to and destroy the turret.

The damage of Torb's turret is pretty low, but the rate of fire is pretty high, and of course, 100% accuracy.

This basically means that Torb's turrets are nasty against low rate-of-fire players like Genji, and McCree, but are less effective against durable and higher rate of fire targets like Dva (who is used a lot more often these days to deal with Torb, even though she's not a good counter to him) and Winston. Ironically, Genji and McCree excel at dealing with Bastion (most everyone does).
