Reaper has the same problem that soldier used to have.

They're not front line fighters.

When they become effective. People will bitch. Happened to McCree too and now pharah is tearing ass. Infact, i remember saying here a long time ago that she is broken just because of that one game after her buff where i floated in the air perpetually and destroyed the other team with little effort.

People couldn't handle McCree when he went from a hammer fanning fiend to a precision based six shooter. They couldn't handle soldier when his damage became not shit at mid range. And they will not be able to handle a reaper that is more effective in a face to face combat situation between teams.

The dmg to soldier is noticeable and that hurts taking care of the Pharmercy combo. Hes still extremely viable however that combo is horrendous and a pain in the ass. Reaper does need a rework, I cant see them being happy with where hes currently at
EDIT
I would go with a similar buff they made with mercy making her immune to damage for a short bit after a res to his teleport ability making him immune in the process of doing it even if that added a few seconds to the CD.
Gathering orbs could apply a shield at full health or reduce CD on say wraith or teleport. Collecting at full health should provide something for him like Lord said.

I've noticed this too, it's a pain taking out Pharah now. Hopefully one of the next heroes they put out has some decent anti-air capabilities.


EDIT:

Maybe give Reaper an extra life? Where after he dies he's able to 'wraith' (not teleport) to a nearby location and starts to regenerate there and if he hits full health he's back in action, so unless the other group chases him down they can't actually 'kill' him.

Kind of like the skeleton king in HotS? That would be really cool.

Similar, though Reaper only has a limited time to find a hidey spot and then immediately begins to Rez, and is vulnerable during it.

This is countered by the fact that it doesn't count as a 'death' the first time he's killed, only if he's killed while the CD for this ability is active.

Helps keep OW faster paced.
