Mercy&brigitte nerf; ana,lucio&moira buff


#1

it finally happened… other healers got buffed and mercy nerfed.

i dont think brigitte needed a nerf tho.


#2

They could buff Brigs recast speed or duration on her heal/armor ability to compensate. :slight_smile:


#3

Ffs let the supports be for once and focus the main tanks


#4

i think the nerf just makes her more boring to play.

waiting 7sec to be able to use the bash that is also used as a mobility ability is kinda meh… but i guess the community got what it wanted.


#5

wow this sucks :frowning:


#6

1 second I don’t think will make or break her, I don’t think it was necessary. But I’m mostly a QP person. Still like to see her be able to heal a little more frequently, even if that meant they had to reduce the value on her ability.

But yeah, fighting that stun is pretty annoying I get that. Hopefully they’ll nerf the other heroes who are annoying to fight.


#7

This is one of the best patches i have ever seen. Gj blizz.


#8

Brigitte was fine, I don’t think she needed even further nerfs.
It’s the only thing going for her. Her healing is quite low, so overnerfing her signature move will make it a tough choice to pick her.


#9

i’m just happy i can play moira as a main healer in comp again without being yelled at to switch to mercy

:”)


#10

you dont know that yet…

moira cant heal reliable through barriers… mercy can.


#11

shhh, i can dream… at least i can play lúcio again

i do think brigitte didn’t need another nerf tho, at least not to shield bash


#12

Inb4 Mercy stays meta and people start complaining again. Yeah I dont think the changes will help in any damn way sorry.


#13

Honestly only ones that will make a big difference are Ana and Lucio. Especially if that 300 HP healing on Nano is affected by her Biotic Grenade since that could just heal a tank to full at the press of a button.


#14

Thank god thank god. I’m just too happy about the ana buff, hundred of hours on Ana players (like myself) not being told to switch to LMB bot.


#15

Hopefully this is enough to make choosing the best healer for a team more interesting. I’m pretty hype


#16

These changes are exactly what we need to diversify the support meta and im loving it!

Mercy gets a slight nerf to balance her with everyone else
Everyone else gets a slight buff to balance them with Mercy
Briggs shield bash nerf is not that big, maybe we’ll see a rise on flanker heroes to neuter snipers.

Overall good sh¡t Blizz
