Since when are giant, armoured german men with rocket hammers scared of edgy boys with disposable nerf guns?
Jokes aside as the one above me said good tank play is always of utmost importance. I'm a main tank main (mostly Rein - but I have equal time on supports) and I haven't felt oppressed by edgelords since the tuned down the self heal again since Reapers now seem to be slightly more cautious again and my teams haven't been quivering cowards in their presence.
Adjectives are fun. Anyway. If you're feeling overwhelmed as a tank It's probably worth evaluating your own play, instead of crying over patch notes. Win some lose some. Determination and perseverance are paramount.
