Hey for the sake of fun, I will ask you some things you may not be able to answer!
(tldr at the bottom!)
I am a support player, but most people will tell you I’m a Mercy one trick. This is… and isnt true. I climbed solo queue from gold to mid-masters all by myself with no coaching or advice, flexing across all supports. But then I hit a wall. I got freaked out around 3700sr and didn’t want to climb anymore or else I’d be going up against streamers or pros and I felt like I was nowhere near good enough to compete against them so I just stopped playing competitively on that account.
I’m a nightmare on the ladder because my first instinct is to lock Mercy and only swap if we can’t make Mercy work. My next choice (and next best support) is Ana. Then I can do brig/moira when needed. And Bap when necessary. I don’t touch Zen/Lucio.
I climbed to diamond on DPS (Ashe/Widow two trick) after a mere 5hrs and haven’t bothered climbing because DPS bores me. I don’t play tank outside QP but my friends insist I’d do alright as Zarya and a pretty good job on Reinhardt if I unbind my charge!
Jokes aside, I never know if I’m playing Mercy right. The people I duo with say ‘youre one of the best ive ever seen’ but its kinda a duos job to be nice to you so I cant really trust their words for it. I worry I’m using my ult wrong, or im prioritizing the wrong targets… etc. And my deaths per 10 has gone up since the Genji buffs went live
- Any advice for a mid-masters support (mercy/ana main)? Especially against dive comps/genji
- What do you suggest is the best way to improve aim aside just playing comp (any gamemodes/workshops?)
- I lose when I duo, but win when I solo queue… Any ideas why? I worry its me over-protecting my duos and not helping the team enough
Sorry for the essay lol but you DID say ask anything
