Make Atlas great
The point of this rework of mine is to make Atlas more impactful but not a lot tankier, by slightly tweaking all parts of his kit.
First: give him the treatment Orisa got in Overwatch.
Let him use the stasis field, and second chance while shooting/charging his shots, Atlas feels very sluggish when it comes to reacting to anything, because he needs to stop charging his primary fire to do anything else, which results in the gun being fired, and even more time lost.
And now to the actual balancing part
Make his ult better:
-enemies should NOT be able to capture objectives, get credit (the ingame money), and their cooldowns, ultimate charges, and resource meters should NOT increase or decrease as long as they are affected by exile.
-Make the movement speed penalty while ulting less severe, this way Atlas doesn't turns into an ult battery for the duration, and can line up shots a bit easier.
Revert the primary fire damage nerf (at least for the uncharged shots).
Lower the stasis field and second chance cooldowns by 2s each, so he doesn't need to hide so much.
Have temporal divide add 50% to your current stasis field cooldown (the one you have after you buy chronos and get your cooldown reduction card), and NOT to the base 14s cooldown.
And now you have viable tank, who is impactful, can react quickly but still isn't freakishly quick, isn't very mobile, and is still weak to CC.
I posted this Atlas buff on the paladins subreddit originally, but someone told me to post it here as well.
