That’s the thing Crusher… Mercy with mass res was never a must pick until her ult was given invincibility. Without the invincible buff, she was no more than a troll pick.
You could find this info online as well if you’re skeptical. But that was part of the misconception (and partly the reason of my thread). A lot of people mistaken Mercy 1.0 or anyone that mentions a revert back to mass res with “Mercy 1.5”, essentially the patch where she was given buffs to stay viable - because she was doing so poorly. Before such a patch, and the SR exploit being a problem after it, Mercy was NOT a must pick. She didn’t have the invincibility buffs until Feb 2017 if I recall. Before that though, she was extremely niche and underpowered, and Ana, Lucio, and Zen dominated the meta.
It was always intended to be a push or sustain, but now that her healing is reverted back at 50hps, her ultimate has effectively received a 10% nerf to it’s impact, which is a problem since most people agree already that it’s already arguably very weak.
