Is orb balanced in PvP?

I have a wizard that has an orb build and I have a pretty solid build, but because of the new changes to projectile ranges there is nothing I can do against characters who are projectile based (comet, guided arrow, etc) I don’t think the orb counts as a projectile and i know it’s range is quite a bit smaller than the other projectiles listed in the most recent patch notes.

I believe the range of orb should be increased to match the ranges of the other spells. Otherwise I will lose 100% of the time to projectile builds just because they kill me before I can ever get in range
