I disagree with this notion. When has Blizzard ever implemented a community suggestion? They’re not going to implement a version of Mercy that is fun and is grossly OP. We take into consideration, too seriously, the suggestions of others on this forum. As if a person making the suggestion has a direct line of communication to blizzard and the idea would be implemented immediately on the PTR. It doesn’t matter what’s suggested, wether or not it’s reasonable because Blizzard most likely isn’t going to implement it. I learned that after writing several novel sized posts about Dva… and now, despite my efforts, the hero doesn’t really resemble anything that I enjoy playing anymore. But no one cares about how I feel or my feedback. At least Dva is still viable and can be fun to play.
Mercy as she is, is supremely boring. Her whole kit is balanced around a 30 second cooldown ability which brings her - a highly mobile character to a grinding halt so that she can be easily shot in the head. Other than ressurecting, Mercy’s only role is to follow people around with her stick. I refuse to play such an uninteresting character, and I don’t believe she bears any resemblance to a hero.
I think that Mercy can be balanced and fun to play. I think res could be baked into valk to make valk not totally uninspired and boring. How will Blizzard do it? I don’t know, I’m not paid to do their job for them. Let them figure it out.
