Cool, I’m putting my recent post here again just because i’m that kind of person and i’m getting tired of this.
Listen, Mercy was a victim of certain bad balance choices around her. Now hear me out. Ana was released onto the pc on 7/19/16 https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20747185139
then on 8/2/16 Anas’ rate of fire and magazine size was increased because they deemed her as a little weak. https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20747925082
On 9/2/16 Lucios’ amp it up on the ps4 was decreased by 30% due to him being a “must pick” https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20749174841
then on 10/11/16 everything started going downhill for Ana. Anas’ ultimate cost was increased by 20% and her grenade radius was increased by 3 to 4 meters https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20749875377.
Then on 11/14/16 Anas’ ult no longer gave speed boost to whoever she applied it to and Lucios’ Amp it up was decreased by 10 % while Blizzard claimed it made him a mandetory pick https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20752015856 .
As the new year rolled around so did more nerfs for Ana, decreasing her Biotic grenade healing boost by 50% as they claimed it had “too much healing” https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20752795395
In February which im sure it miffed a lot of people off is when, wait for it, Mercys’ invulnerability as she rez’d was implemented due to the fact she died a lot to use it. https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20753535162
On March 20, 2017 Ana again was nerfed(feels bad man), her damage being decreased from 80 dps to 60 dps to make her “less threatening ” https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20753508356
After Ana was nerfed, it looked like it was Lucios’ turn to face the music because due to him still being a must pick on April 7 ,2017 his area of healing was reduced from 30m to 10m , his hps was increased by 30% and self heals reduced by 25% because of his must pick status of raw healing it forced him to stay close to his team https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20753818008
That leaving Mercy/Zen in the support roster as the only main healers until mercys’ rework on sept 19, 2017 (Moira wasn’t introduced until Nov 16, 2017 https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20759535818).
(Note: Anas dps was increased from 60 to 70 dps last november in the patch Moira was introduced but it doesn’t matter considering Dive was and is the current meta as of right now, which isn’t helping her in the slightest as a sniper when she can’t get to high places and Anas’ only method of escape is her sleep dart .)
(If I missed anything please let me know.)
*Also put mass res as an ult again with tweaks please
