The Frozen Nerdz Weekly Top 5

Our Top 5 Saltiest McCree Nerf responses…

5.) So I get that mccree kinda needs a nerf but why now… Game was in beta forever and I saw little to no complaints about mccree and come game release everybody is screaming op op.
4.)Fan the Hammer is bad skill now. Lucky for us that McCree don’t even need it.
3.)Meanwhile Roadhog which is a way worse McCree is still untouched and nobody cares. Definitely waiting for Quake over here now.
2.)So why did we buff Mcree? Blizz if you can’t buff/nerf correctly, don’t do it at all.
1.) *You will have to listen to Episode 112 to find out!*
