And I do say typically, because there have been a few that have made me go “hmm…that’s not bad…I’d like to test this on ptr.” But for the most part…no.
I’ve seen dozens of posts ranging between the following ideas:
- Complete rework
- 1.0 Revert
- Remove rez
- LoS on old rez
- Switch valk and rez between Q and E
- Boost her healing/damage amp more during valk
- Make rez earned/resource meter
And none of these seem to address the problem that I’ve consistently had with mercy since my first time playing her. She has no depth of play. There is seemingly nothing (outside of positioning and timing) that separates a good mercy from a great mercy. You can’t heal better; you can’t rez better. There’s no aiming to improve upon (no this isn’t about “muh skill”). And it’s been this way since day 1. Every iteration of mercy has had this problem, from mass rez, to insta-rez must-pick, to the current version. I get that she’s supposed to be the low-skill, easily accessible, reliable healer, but there’s got to be something to improve on. Anyways, this was my opinion. Y’all are welcome to your own. And no, I don’t have a suggestion to how I would want to see her at this time, sorry.
