Have our GOATS been stolen?

This is kind of old news, but the most successful meta in Overwatch right now is GOATS. It doesn't stand for anything; it's a 3 support, 3 tank combination that was first popularized by a team called GOATS.

Doesn't seem surprising, other than that it took this long to figure out. The exact same thing was super effective in TF2 - just called "the combo" with a Heavy/Medic, and frequently limited by artificial caps because otherwise the pairs dominated the whole field. In a game like Overwatch, where the traits of individual class types are exaggerated even more, seems like it ought to be pretty ridiculous.

I've played very little Overwatch (maybe 20 hours? Maybe?), but even in that time I could utterly dominate a point by going tank and sitting on it with a healer nearby. Obviously more skilled people could take me out, but in a comp where everybody has high skill levels, it's going to be crazy effective.
