The Anger Around the PTR Mercy Buffs Explained

  • Mercy a couple of months ago with Valk, 30 second Rez, 60 HPS
  • Mercy mains: “We do not like this.”
  • Mercy gets nerfed. Now has Valk, 30 second Rez, 50 HPS
  • Mercy mains: “We also don’t like this”
  • Mercy gets buff/reverted. Now has 30 second Rez, 50 HPS, 60 HPS on Valk
  • Mercy mains: “How is this any different from before the nerf? We still don’t like this.”
  • Other people: “Mercy mains are entitled”

Alllllright OW community


But the rework itself was the cake,not the HPS. Dosnt matter what you give back from the failed concept.

This is gold! :ok_hand:

Same devs that; indirectly nerfed Moira by fixing a bug that made her heal through shields, nerfed Roadhog’s damage at first and didnt give any compensation at first, thought giving that she can eat anything for 4s and not fixing the bugs for heroes like Mei for over 2 years (her cyrofreeze, fixed now but it took YEARS).

I was giving an analogy for the heal nerf and heal revert. Should’ve clarified. :sweat_smile:

No other hero in the game received such a drastic change for the purposes of making them feel better to people who weren’t playing them, when at the same time no attempt was made to ensure that the hero was still fun for the people that were playing them.

They gave hog new breather to make part of his kit more active, they gave micro missiles to make her kit more active, etc.

Mercy is singular in the way she was treated, so she is singular in the shape of her complaints.

Regardless if you think they are justified or just whiners, it shouldn’t be hard to figure out why they are the only ones that have reacted to the changes in the way they did.


CONTEXT is important. Yes we wanted buffs and that’s what we got, but we’ve also been complaining about how the devs ignore the REAL problems with mercy and this is just another example of that. Yes it’s a buff, but it’s not a buff that fixes most of the problems with mercy right now. People are like “mercy mains wanted buffs and then complain when they get them” but they forget that context matters!

With that being said, overall I’m really happy that they buffed her at all cuz I was honestly expecting them to not change her at all


Spam for buff/changes. Get a buff. Buff is not exactly what you want. Spam forums more.

That’s pretty entitled, yes. Thread muted.


Are you a psychic? Because damn thats accurate. :laughing:


The heal “buff” is irrelevant, its really in the same category at this point as if they would have increased Mercy’s pistol damage during Valkyrie by 10%.Its a buff sure,but its not the reason why people are upset about Mercy.

This whole uprising is about still ignoring every single possible solution offered to them,to continue down a path that leads to nowhere.

Driveby insults and then muting the thread, so classy.


What do you mean!
Of course you can.
They build a game with a certain intent, certain numbers, certain TTK’s…

like I would read all that

Changes to make her more fun. That has yet to happen.

That doesn’t address our main concerns at all.

It doesn’t address our main concerns. :man_shrugging:

This isn’t spam. :blush:

This is a trend from you. You always mute threads you dislike and offer no real constructive response. :confused: That’s not helpful is it? :blush:

what exactly is unfun about mercy compared to… whenever you thought she was fun?


I was tabbing back and forth to the game and could have worded this better, but I was aiming at “and at the most, calls for Valkyrie to be removed from the game entirely.”

That’s a bit much.

Then your argument holds no grounds. :man_shrugging:

No LetoGheyFish, it wasn’t necessary though. Regardless of what people thought process about the matter of opinion, the recent nerf to Mercy was nor needed especially since the other support besides Brigitte, received a buff at the same time.

The smart decision was to test the other support’s buff out on PTR while keeping Mery at 60 h/s. So please don’t sit here and tell that blatantly lie, saying that the nerf was necessary.

She is a main and pure healer… why are so many people surprise about the fact that our one and only PURE healer have exception and can outheal (even though that is not true) other supports?


Valkyrie is, in my opinion, a glorified spectator mode and Resurrect on E is boring and dreadful to use because of all the restrictions and drawbacks it has.
