    I have heard and seen Korean top players using 3 dps , 1 tank , 2 healer setup. mostly genji , tracer , pharah , winston , mercy/lucio and ana. i heard it's very good and it's very viable in high rank with alot of cordination. The more common meta between gold and diamond is 2 tank , 2 dps and 2 healers. is it better to have 3 dps vs 2 dps and 1 tank vs 2 tanks ? i really prefer the 222 setup as it's more viable in my mind as it complies with the game layout of 6 players which have 2 roles from each ? what are your opinions guys ? really curious at what are your opinions

    Never been in a group where 312 worked in comp.

    I hate solo tanking, oddly enough I am fine with solo healing, but I always want a second tank.

    Exactly, especially since I like playing off tanks like Zarya and Road Hog a lot more.

    if you have another tank or dps that can also heal (roadhog / 76 / reaper), you can make 3/1/2 work. One tank would require a really really good tank that stays alive and provides enough coverage for the DPS to not die

    so a Reinhard, unless you're playing KOTH maps it forces you to play Rein. That is why I like 2 tank, it keeps things interesting.
    as a Zarya I love nothing more than a Dva or Road that I can shield as they walk face first into the entire team, free charge, lol. plus ulti wombos

    If I get picked as Mercy alot I just switch to Ana so I can defend myself. Good positioning is key as mercy, but you are right, if they have a dive comp sometimes you can't position well enough, so out comes Ana with her sleep dart and self healing biotic grenades.

    3-1-2 only in atack maps. else 2-2-2 is the top combination in the game there is no new meta about that, just zarya is best with reinhard not with roadhoag and lucio is best with anna not with zeny e.t.c. and the map counts a lot.

    Mercy do have self-healing too. In gold elo it's rare that the team will protect mercy. As a dps / support player . i always get picked off by genji and winston as mercy

    IMO , i feel that Lucio and mercy goes well together too. if your team is doing badly. as mercy has rez and lucio have sound barrier , to prevent further unnecessary misplays

    mercy regens when she hasnt taken damage for a few seconds yes, but, that doesn't come close to being as useful as an in the moment half your health heal that also damages the enemy if they are close by. That plus her sleep dart makes it so she can actually defend herself.

    You just haven't seen Mercy mains at plat and above. When they don't need as much protection but are able to juke and survive by themselves. Also at gold elo, its not that players don't protect mercy, its that they can't really kill as fast at all.

    As a Mercy main I don't seem to have trouble with positioning or needing other people to protect me per se ... it's more that I still get people who don't play their own classes / jobs correctly and contributing what they should to the team so as a whole we end up playing a 5v6 or a 4v6. So, while it's not so much that I wish other people were protecting me, I just think that as a team we could be better if everyone were where they needed to be and doing what most benefitted the team instead of trying to be solo cowboys who only want golds or potg's. hehehe

    I only really solo queue for competitive matches, and I've done a lot of 312 comps and it works quite well, Basically have done it for every single map possible currently. I do talk on my mic but I mainly play DPS and Pharah is generally what I use for 312 comps. I do what I can to make things to our advantage with my concussion blast.
