Mercy's "Buff"...?

Most of the changes are just stupid tho, like how is the mercy “buff” supposed to be fun when you cant even use it



(That was the explanation btw)

ahh, that makes a lot more sense now, though now we know what not to have reworked for our heroes

I’ll keep saying it, this whole thing is awful no matter how you look at it

Looking at it from a serious perspective just shows how inane the suggestions are, while looking at it from a joke perspective doesn’t really lead to a lot of laughs since most changes were uninteresting.


The absolutely last thing Mercy needs right now are even more buffs, especially buffs to Ber mobility, so I guess I’m happy with how meaningless this change is.

I think they didn’t buff her much because mercy’s in a good spot.

It just proves balancing should not only be be from the top down, plenty of numbskulls up there as well. These are the same people who created goats and every other crisis meta.

The rez cast time is the exact same as the GA CD.

Anyone realize this is 2 weeks before April 1st?

They could’ve done nothing like they did to Moira.

I’d rather get nothing than be treated like a joke.

So… an out of season April Fools joke?

No, this is just a way to turn supports into DPS. Why do you think Ana gets to nano herself?

And Jeff listened to it… You know, I should be disappointed or angry, but at this point, that’s about what I’ve come to expect from Jeff.

Geoff Goodman participated in the Livestream and was quite amused by some of the ideas.
And he’s in charge of the game balance.

It’s probably An April fools thing

It’s not a troll at all. Think of all the “possible” opportunities. Like eh eh well think of the one possibility. I mean would it sort of encourage more battle mercy tendencies and not really help mercy at all? Who knows (probably). But I’m sure they had a good reason for this instead of ignoring all of the ideas people had for reasonable mercy changes. Right? Right? Yahhh I’m sure (doubtful).

I feel like it is important to note that the Moderators stopped / altered player changes quite frequently and even abandoned their own rule they put in place (no more than 2 changes per hero, but this was ignored when it came to community-driven hatred for Wrecking Ball receiving 4 nerfs).

It was also not Pro-driven as the forums would ask of you to believe, as 3 of the 6 members outside of the moderation team which also contributed were Pro Players. No more then that. There were no specialists called in for heroes like Sombra, anything like that at all.

I watched his changes every time. And they sounded so DUMB. But the worst part is they seemed genuine?
I was excited for Symmetra changes like literally anything. Watched the whole video. And it got to her, I’m eagerly awaiting to here what is said.

Then he speaks. The guy who’s been making crap changes the entire time speaks for Sym. I was so disappointed. he always began every crappy change he suggested with “I don’t know if this is possible”, which I took as code for it’s stupid.

They were never even stupid enough to be crazy. a moving Sym wall or floaty bastion(in one spot mind you) would be more fun than the rubbish on the experimental. But they were far from good changes.

Right? Imagine if the change for Moira was “killing someone resets your right click”

Plus for Mercy, it doesn’t fit her character for her to get CDR with any kills

at first i thought assists would reset the cool down, still its a little useless but like i could see times were it could come in handy, but then i read that its only killing blows and was like wtf? like when you kill a sniper lets say your cool down is already gonna be down lol. it would make more sense if every killing blow lowered the resurrect by like 5 or 10 seconds.
