Most genji's are retarded and waste their deflect. No one except a hanzo and widowmaker can do considerable damage to you before you can throw up your deflect assuming you incorrectly predicted their attack, even then you shouldn't be getting his majority of the time anyway if you can play well Genji and treat the floor like lava.

There was one time, I saw a Genji who, for some reason outside the laws of nature, had decided that he was a tank-like character. Idiot kept charging into death asking me to heal him. I'm Lucio, so I can get around a bit, but I ain't healing your stupid ass halfway across the dang map, while you're dying to a Reinhardt and Tracer combo.

Winston and Mei can counter Genji pretty hard too, and to some extent Zarya if she doesn't get her ult deflected and Symmetra if she gets the jump first.

If a Genji gets fucked over by a Mei it's cause they're fucking retarded. You can easily make distance from a Mei and just end her life if she's stupid enough to chase you. I agree Winston is a good counter for Genji, his jump thing lets him keep up with Genji and his tesla gun just ends Genji's life. If a Genji fights a Zarya on his own he's fucking stupid, she's way too tanky and can outlast a Genji easily. With Symmetra yeah it's just if you get unlucky and she sneaks up on you and at the same time has turrets firing on you, because otherwise you can escape her long before she does good damage.

Only engage Zarya if you have Dragonblade.

Winston is dangerous but not because Winston can 'hunt down' Genji, it's because as long as Winston is with the team, Genji can't get any easy picks. If Winston chooses to hunt down Genji, just climb a wall to force his leap, drop down, then reclimb the wall and escape.

Mei is easy to escape from, just swift strike away and climb a wall.

As for Bastion, god I hate doing the math. Anyway so we'll assume Bastion has average human reaction time, 0.25 seconds. Adding ping and tick rate, which is about 40ms, and tick rate is 50ms, Bastion's reaction time is effectively slowed to 0.34 seconds.

Anyway, Bastion does 600dps, fires 40rps, armor negates 5 damage from Bastion's own shots. So it takes 10 shots to destroy the armor, and another 14 shots to kill Bastion. So 24 shots. That means time to kill Bastion with deflect is 0.6 seconds. Assuming perfect conditions, Bastion will stop firing after 14 shots, leaving Bastion with 140hp.

At this point, it comes down to positioning. Around 10 or 15 metres Genji will win since he can burst down Bastion before Bastion can react to Deflect ending (Genji can queue his fan fire by holding RM and it will automatically fire as soon as Deflect ends), and animation cancel with swift strike+melee.

Of course we're ignoring that Genji tends to engage Bastion first. If we bring in Genji engaging Bastion with his left click, into deflect, then this will reduce Deflect's time to kill, down to only 18 shots needed to be deflected, 0.45 seconds to kill. Again assuming average reaction time and perfect conditions, leaving Bastion with only 58hp. RM+Swift Strike will kill him within 15 metres before any further counterplay by Bastion.

What does all this mean? Genji is heavily favoured in this matchup. Bastion needs very good reaction time in nearly perfect conditions to win the fight, and a positioning advantage, which for a stationary target against somebody as mobile as Genji, is unlikely.

tldr don't plan on killing Genji as Bastion

I agree you can kill Zarya with a dragonblade, but you're generally supposed to use it in a 1-3v6 situation where you have the element of suprise Unless their team is shit and you can play genji well so it's hard to hit you.

I've had no problem escaping from a Winston but if I get ambushed by him in a room I better pull out some plays or hope there's a door I can dash to otherwise it's over.

And a note on the bastion thing. You didn't take into account shouldering the bastion popping around the corner, throwing your shuriken at him and then going back into cover asap before using deflect if he even shoots at you so you can get atleast six shurikens on him.

Dragonblade is pretty weak in a 1v2+ situation since it's so easy to focus fire on you. You're not much more evasive, you have no more ability to defend... if you have a teammate they need to split their efforts on dealing with the angry japanese guy or the person shooting at them. I tend to use blade as fast as I can, it's only 5 kills or so to get, so you'll see a lot of them.

I've generally only used the dragonblade in 1v6 situations. I'm a super weab and have played so much Genji that I'm good enough at jumping in unpredictible directions that I generally don't get killed for awhile. I've done multiple 1v2's/3's without the dragonblade and won, but half of it is because of suprise though but genji is a flanker so you're meant to do that.
