Let’s be honest here, Valkyrie promotes a counterintuitive playstyle. It did. Without a doubt, it did.
Between the amount of times you had Rez on E with a cast time that killed you more than helped you, to the amount of times that your team mates yelled at you for more healing as you watched them all die right before your eyes in spectator mode. It promotes a toxic playstyle.
This is one of the main reasons why almost 40% of Mercy’s pickrate disappeared. It is one of the main reasons why Mercy is being less and less played right now.
But there is hope. Because if you think Valkyrie is unfun to play, it’s your fault, not Mercy, and not the devs. Yes yes, my child. Yours. You’re simply not putting enough into it. You got to feel it, like really feel it. And if all you’re doing is using it to enhance your current range and not get shot at, well… my child… you’re doing it completely wrong. It’s that simple, my child. You’re doing it wrong.
Her ult buffs some of her kit, and makes other parts of her kit worse, but instead of simply not using rez during valk and dying like a good little lamb, you’re voicing your opinions on here explaining how horrible the mechanic is?
Sounds like a problem with your playstyle and not Mercy’s kit imo. Rez being even slower during Valk is not bad balancing, you’re just bad at… not dying. Git gud. - In my most dearest opinion.
Remember, “This rework was a huge success.®™” And this current Mercy is absolutely perfect. Like, I love dying when I valk, it makes me feel alive. I love not being able to heal through team wiping ults. NIRVANA! Yes!
INB4 Non-Mercy’s come at me saying I’m an ignorant cultist and I don’t have an opinion.
