Armor Nerf and Huge Reaper Buff

For those that haven't heard yet, the patch notes for the current version in PTR adds some meta defining changes. As the title suggests, armor is going to receive a nerf with damage reduction decreasing from 5 to 3. My guess is this is to further move the meta away from GOATS comp. All tanks are going to be reeling from this change while everyone else will receive an indirect buff in damage output. Also in regards to buffs, Reaper mains rejoice as he is now better than ever before. Life steal has increased from 30% to 50% of damage dealt, this is insane and combined with the armor nerf Reaper is almost a must pick. I wish Soldier got more attention to his balance, but maybe that will have to wait since he recently made headlines for his surprise backstory.   Check out more information regarding the PTR patch notes here. It's not 100% the changes will make it to live servers, but the past indicates this is what we will deal with for at least 2 weeks.
