    anyone else sad with all of the recent mercy nerf's?

    -Valkyrie lasts 15 seconds
    -It doesn't give a second Rez charge
    -Rez isn't instant during Valk
    -And they even reduced the speed of Guardian Angel during it

    Sad indeed. I WAS a Mercy main and I got over it 2 weeks ago. Go find a different hero to main or if you wish to stick with Mercy, try to adjust with all the nerf slammed on her. She's basically a healbot at this point.

    She was simply too powerful. I think it's good.

    Think her recent nerfs to make her more or less the support type character ult in that it does just as much of value as any other support`s ult does. i.e Moira`s ult does not impact much for team fights (you have to aim, hits like winston`s tickle gun, and heals only slightly faster than moira`s regular heal) the large benefit being a faster heal with larger range and it does not take up your heal pool, Zen`s ult helps against fast dps ults but not single burst dmg ult and he cant attack/discord in that form).

    In terms of the now mercy, she can still make a difference with her ult but not dramatically as much prior nerf (prior nerf her ult did wayy more value than any other support ult could in that she basically turned the fight around by insta mass rezzing her team). All you had to do was hide in a corner and pop ult when your team went in full throttle to get ult killed,get rezzed and then have all your team ults while enemy team has none to fight against. None of the other supports at this time had ults that remotely matched the value you can get from mercy ult.

    When popping valk (i can heal more and safely to my teammates), while at the same time drawing attention of one of enemy dps to target me instead of my team. Unless it is deadeye macree or solider 76 ult, I can survive at least half of my ult time or even not die at all allowing for a higher chance that my team can survive when one of enemy team dps is focusing on trying to kill me in space and im just flying in space healing/powering up my team mates at the same time.

    I feel like awareness, positioning, and decision making are a huge part of it. Mercy is still my go-to pick for playing support if we have a good team since I know I have these skills, I'm not saying I'm a god, but throughout plat and below most mercy's (both mains and flex players) have none of these skills. For example: while playing Widow and doing well enough to be "called out" for my "aimbot" almost every time the enemy mercy ulted she would fly into the skybox, and every time I would be given a free crit, and this was in high gold.

    From my experience from seeing forum posts and hearing the stuck up mercy mains saying x isn't doing y (dps, tank, even the second support on occasion) I feel like it's just low skill ceiling players not being able to win teamfights without any game-sense. If I can outheal and provide more support in one round than a112hr Mercy main, that was complaining about our team under-performing for 2 rounds then the issue is with players not wanting to learn or adapt.
