Overwatch Mercy Updates
Like most of you guys, we are huge Overwatch fans here at Mods “R” Us. The recent Halloween update has been a lot of fun and anything that brings back the epic, Junkenstiens Revenge gets a high five from us.
But the biggest change happened just the other day and that was to Mercy who has had her healing abilities kind of nerfed. The resurrect ability made a player playing as Mercy who knew what they were doing a hugely important part of a team. You could argue that a skilled Mercy player is the most important part of an Overwatch team!
Anyway, this new update has made it so that her Valkyrie and Resurrect work together “better” so that two players can be resurrected in a more efficient and timely manner. Valkyrie no longer will affect the cooldown of Resurrect so that is something players are going to have to watch for.
Blizzard has done a lot of work the last year tweaking various characters in an effort to make the game as balanced as possible, but with Mercy being a character that many of the diehard fans love to play as. If these changes prove to be not popular then perhaps they will make changes. After all, it is hard to imagine that a new player or just a casual player is using Mercy. Mercy is a character that is best used by someone who knows exactly what they are doing so we have a feeling it is going to be the hardcore players who dictate if this new change stays or not.
