Being as how they punish Pharah they should have a negative for Junkrat as well.

junkrat doesnt fly and his projectiles move at almost half the speed pharahs do

But he is also able to fire at a significantly faster and more flexible rate. Plus he can fire from safety behind walls.

His c4 jumps are also on the same level as Pharah's ability to launch in the air.

IMO they should make Junkrat the go-to guy for AOE attacks. He should have huge explosions with his grenades that punish enemies who group up.

Most of the attacks in this game are very "single target"... only Ultimates have real multi-target killing power

Can't believe you think junkrat is OP when Pharah is all around better.

The only thing Pharah has over Junkrat is the ability to fly. Junk's explosives are way better, and his trap is a bigger problem than Pharah's push.

Faster sure but at the cost of consistency.
Pharah can also fire safely at distance. You're exaggerating the distance of his C4 jumps. Pharah can go higher, and stay in the air indefintely.

TC just doesn't understand the difference in pacing between OW and COD. While, yes, grenadier style gameplay usually does have self splash damage as per real life, death by splash is much more punishing for a team oriented game where he has sub average mobility. Not only that but the average interaction is about ten yards or less (mostly do to caps and payloads), so it makes sense.

Again, it's for pacing purposes and while Blizz isn't a good example of making good balancing decisions, it fits perfectly well in this context.

lolwat, Junkrat sucks at range. If you honestly can't beat him... then wow, you're hopeless.

Pharah completely deletes Junkrat from the game. Anyone with RANGE deletes him.

Or maybe you can learn a character that hard counters him like Pharah or Zarya. If not them then pick a soft counter which is anyone who can shoot straight...so the vast majority of the cast.
