“Its disheartening to have mercy swoop in and rez her whole team” - jeff kaplan / devs
Isnt it also disheartening to have your whole team wiped by a reaper ult or soldier ult, hanzo, d.va etc.
The amount of hypocrite / untrue comments on Mercy by overwatch supporters, OWL and the overwatch team is just stupid.
1.0 Mercy punished the players who used more than 2 ults in a fight to wipe your team and thats how she was balanced she could make or break match, just like how any other hero in overwatch can. Pulling off a big rez wasn’t always great because if the other team was prepared for it they could easily kill them all again.
The reason why everyone disliked her is because her play mechanics were flawed with her ultimate but that could have been fixed with some los, no invulnerability, very short cast time etc not a bad rework that just made her flaws more noticeable.
Playing her is very bland and not exciting. The hide n rez tactic wasnt even a thing, there was a very noticeable difference between hiding and taking cover, Mercy had and still does have to be stealthy to try and rez. High end players would know that you dont hide just to try and rez thats stupid and just a bad Mercy player.
Many players would argue that she is in a fine place right now which is wrong. the original Mercy was much healthier for the games play style than what we have today, Mercy has to be stealthier to try and rez which is extremely hard to do when mid fight or in los.
Rez was never intended to be a basic ability because we all originally knew it as her ult and the power level of it is way to much to be her secondary ability.
Just imagine reapers ult being on a 30 second cool down, how could that play out? - horribly and this is what we have now but for Mercy.
How many more posts will Mercy fans have to do to get Blizzards attention? probably alot more.
This video details alot of it amazingly.
