“Oh, it’s fine we have a healer!”. No you don’t. You have an Ana. This is not a healer. Because:
- She needs line of sight
- She will miss her shots
- She can’t escape
- She can only heal one person at a time
“But utility! Sleep dart! Grenade”. Yeah, no it doesn’t matter. You will miss your sleep darts. You will miss your grenades. And even when you think it’s a phat grenade on the enemy team, your own teammate will block it and it’ll be wasted.
But even if you hit your sleep darts, and even if you get fat grenade hits, it’s not enough. You will still only heal one target at a time, and being purple doesn’t mean the enemy can’t shoot or use abilities.
So if you’re on console in gold, don’t choose Ana, thinking you’re picking a healer slot. Anyone but her.
As for PC…I need to see it with my own eyes to believe it. I want to see Ana play on Youtube in gold without any pre-made team comp, and without mic communication. Show it to me. Show me how these magical Anas exist in this scenario.
