Make your choice vs MercyPockets: Focus the Pocketed: They gets more healing when low so it's harder to kill them Focus Mercy: You have to shoot a constantly healed Mercy while her pockets bombard you Lose-Lose scenario
Cryoptic ヶ月 前
@Saman Shomali well with her new changes, shes "forced" to heal others to self sustain, if shes with a pharah for example shes now way easier to kill. to even achieve somewhat similar levels of sustain she needs to heal more, and dmg boost less (and we all know dmg boost is the good but also problematic part of mercy), which again makes her less problematic since we wont see sojourn 1 shots as often, less pharah and ashe giga pockets etc... shes more of a healer now than she was before. but she also has more burst healing. trying to kill someone being pocket healed by mercy is harder than it used to be.
Saman Shomali
Saman Shomali ヶ月 前
@Cryoptic hmmm, yeah I guess you are right, if you focus Mercy first, she won’t get healed and you can kill her easier. Specially if she pocket’s a dps that won’t take damage a lot. Should be interesting to see what new ways of playing her develop, perhaps she won’t pocket that much anymore, and she will try to heal everyone.
Cryoptic ヶ月 前
​@Saman Shomali its not a purely better regen. its way more conditional. arguably the first one wasnt conditional at all. u dont get the new regen while dmg boosting, in valk, or healing someone full hp. u need to be healing someone that NEEDS healing for it to work. its not better at all for most scenarios. being stuck to healing the tank more to not die is also a nerf since mercy wants to pocket the dps, not the tank.
Dougtooth ヶ月 前
Its not always a lose-lose scenario tho. Pockets usually dont pay attention enough to their mercy when they are being focused. Also her new passive may make her “tanky” in a way but it only applies when the team is low. When they are close or even full health it completely stop. That sucks since its really easy to counter by simply just focusing on Mercy. And Mercy has no way of escaping since her GA is now 3s. Basically she got no survivability when enemies are focusing on her.
Dougtooth ヶ月 前
@Ivy Productions Regardless whether mercy players use GA or not. 3 seconds is still a lot. She’s basically just a sitting duck whenever a flanker is focusing on her.

The updated color blind options are such a great change from what they originally were! Being able to customize personal settings, rather than choosing from a few options, can make the difference between literally being able to see important details and not.

@Shark Gamer I haven’t played tank much, because I’d decided to become a dps main until they fix supports (I hate playing kiriko), but it seems that he can get a lot more out of being able to use piledriver more often and having that little bit of help against poke and disengagement because of his shields

The rein swing is very very useful in getting enemies pushed off map after a pin cancel. Sometimes you need the enemy to go a little more further, sometimes you need them to be pushed to the left (a hole or a ledge is there). I don’t notice people getting pushed out of my reach too much in a 1v1 but it does happen. I figure this might actually be more impactful for clusters of enemies where you might keep 2 or 3 of them in range for 1-2 more swings than before which could be big.

As a rein main the knock back reduction on hammer will be a quality of life for both reins and enemies. I won’t get frustrated so much that a basic attack is stunlocking me, and as a rein I won’t have to chase enemies as much.
The SureFire Gamer
4:15.. This is a significant buff for Rein mains. One problem was that Damage heroes who would hit and run could sometimes get assisted with running by our Hammer. With this buff, Reinhardt can more consistently get that last swing to finish then off instead of helping them escape.

As a rign main the knockback tends to be more of a hindrance then a benefit. It only helps if they are aiming at someone other than you because your hit box is so big. So overall I say this is a buff

@Zachary Jackson just so you know, this kind of attitude about a video game character and the people who play that character makes you seem like a deeply unpleasant person. maybe you're not, you probably aren't all bad, but the energy you're bringing to the table today is such a bummer
destinyhunter19 ヶ月 前
@AyoooWTF thats not your job as brig, you cant stop people getting low health, inspire doesnt heal enough. But with a health pack on top thats now 65hps, as well as 25 burst heals, you can certainly manage the battle easier. I got to gm as brig this seasom through all the hate mail and shitty meta, and ngl this change is pretty big for her. Mace to the face my fellow brig mains

Kanj ヶ月 前
It does reduce the effectiveness of a tech he has where if you swing at the proper angle instead of knocking them away it pulls them closer. This is different from his other swing tech where he extends his hotbox range using corner swings. Overall this is a buff for those who either don't know the tech, aren't good with the tech, or just can't be bothered to do the tech in the middle of an intense brawl.

Regarding the map changes, I hope they plan to add an alternate time-of-day to every map at some point, they can rotate them between Seasons to keep things interesting as a substitute to Map Pools. I like the little preview window in the settings, maybe they'll add every hero cinematic to the Hero Gallery like they did for JQ and Kiriko, would be nice for new players to get an idea what that hero is all about.

While the Guardian Angel nerfs hurt, I’m interested in how well her new passive will help in survivability in team fights. I’m also curious if the passive goes off if you’re healing Bob?
123Suffering456 ヶ月 前
I would assume yes because Bob is treated like a regular teammate by most mechanics in the game. Actually interesting to think Mercy could heal up her team's Bob in a fight to help herself survive better.

I think Reins hammer knock back change is not good for when you're pinning enemies off the map and giving them a last hit to push them further. However, it probably stop enemies being pushed further away from you when they’re jumping. I think more good than bad 🔨 👍
Rockargen ヶ月 前
But it wasnt strong enough to push them off tho, it just made it easier to escape from you. And i think they shouldnt have nerfed the ults damage so much.

@Jason Trumbo Anyone with eyes, 2 limbs, and bio-electric currents going through their brain can properly punish Mercy. If Mercy is not in shooting range, then she isnt a concern at that moment. The hard part being the Sojourn right beside Mercy will destroy your HP bar with one right click. So Mercy clearly isnt the problem.

Oh god I am. So on the fence but rapidly falling off on the side of not enjoying these changes for Mercy. Her mobility was insane but holy heck that is a LOT of nerfs to it. Also why did they need to nerf the HPS on not half health targets by 10, or AT ALL. People didn’t like her for the heals and now that it’s 45hps it’s gonna be worse when outside of Valk. The passive I’m hoping generates ult charge for herself since I feel like that is gonna be needed more often now for healing throughput. That change is nice but I feel like the fun I have on mercy is gonna go away since the movement was so fun and worth to master

Considering ball constantly has to run away to heal having that shield is CRAZY good.

Wojtug ヶ月 前
Man, the shield buff on ball is massive. Literally no other hero benefits from shields as much as ball does considering he can easily get out of combat and start regening them. This also helps protect that juicy armor from annoying poke, preserving it for close-quarters. You also have 150 less hp to worry about meaning that 2 giga packs and one small pack is all you need to have maxed out hp. Pile driver buff is also cool since it's damage was incosistent and underwhelming for a 10 sec cd
Cryoptic ヶ月 前
@Wojtug it rly isnt that much, and to expect that nothing will ever be in ur way is like thinking u can play rein without using ur shield
Wojtug ヶ月 前
@Cryoptic Have you ever played ball 💀 CC is one way to counter ball but the sickening amount of abilities that disrupt or displace you can easily break your fireball
Cryoptic ヶ月 前
@Wojtug comparatively to orisa, hes not easier to hit. hes harder to hit unless ur on hitscan. and easy to stun??? from who?? ana?? thats one hero. junk cant stun bal leasy, rein cant, hog can, but it doesnt do much and its better for him to hook others.... like who besides ana is gonna cc ball?
Wojtug ヶ月 前
@Cryoptic The downside of this "tankimess" is his massive hitbox, which drastically decreases the effective hp because of how darn easy he is to hit and stun
Cryoptic ヶ月 前
@Wojtug i dont think its a bad buff. i think its a really good one for what it does. but giving him 150 free hp every time he gets out of combat quite literally is making him tankier. effective hp isnt purely just the hp btw. its accounting for other factors such as abilities, healing, armor etc... an ana with nade up has an effective hp of 300. does this mean she cant die to 200 hp burst? no ofc not, but her effective hp is 300. its assuming u dont get one shot, this is same with ball. giving him 150 free hp every time he gets out and chills for a bit is increasing his effective hp. its just harder to put a number on it. as u say, orisa spear spin makes her tankier, it increases her effective hp, but cant rly put a number on it can u? if u never played other games like mobas or rpgs, then id suggest looking at vids explaining effective hp. its easier than reading what i write here. i just personally wanted a non tanky buff. a movement, util, or dmg buff. preferably util.
madster ヶ月 前
as a mercy main i actually don’t mind the changes for her since i feel like it forces you to play much more thoughtfully with your positioning and more punishing if you get caught in a situation where you’re positioned badly, however almost three seconds to fly again is going to be horrible in my opinion. 2 would have been fine but 2.5 is a long time in a fast paced environment when you need to move quickly. but i also think it’s something that will force you to play smarter rather than relying on movement so it’ll be interesting to play.

The Hammer swing thing is kinda all around buff . I If a was caught getting swung on I'd time a jump and 40% of the time get out of range, especially with the rein v rein match up
KFed 98
KFed 98 ヶ月 前
As a plat rein main I do think the hammer having less knock back is a buff for him, mainly cause good players will jump before getting hit with rein so they can easily escape his range. While yes the knock back would disrupt aim of targets you're hitting, I don't think enough people even shoot back for it to be a noticable nerf to him. It may change the meta of what to do when facing a rein though if you have good aim since most DPS can probably just kill him in a 1v1 easier.. but I'd overall say it's gonna be a net buff since enemies escaping rein's range was the main issue to begin with.. it does however mean that pinning someone off the map into slapping them further away with one hammer swing will be slightly less consistent.

Arvin Medina ヶ月 前
They should make variable changes in Open queue and Arcade where the changes depends on team composition. For example, whenever 3 tanks are present on the team, their health pool reduce, or 3 supports are present, their healing output reduce, and 3 dps reduce damage output
John Smith
John Smith ヶ月 前
I can't see any way of making that work that isn't ridiculously complicated. Your idea for team composition, particularly tanks, also came to me. But consider this: Another player switches to tank mid-round. Would your health bar start flashing before your max health suddenly drops by 100, right when you're pushing against a serious ult? For damage/support, does the edge of the screen blink before your damage/healing output drops? It wouldn't feel good for anyone if these things happen, especially under pressure. Removing 150 health from each tank is descent and simple, hopefully good enough for deathmatch. I'm not sure if 200 would be better, except tanks would be ruined in open queue, if they aren't already.
Andrew ヶ月 前
I dont play open queue but yeah this change kind of makes it almost necessary to run multiple tanks because each individual tank is so much weaker.
2:00 that's actually really good because she still felt a bit too weak sometimes and that 25 health might just make all the difference especially with her regen. Though they shouldn't make her too tanky I feel like a lower health pool but getting health from wounds is a good system. If anything I'd say boost her regen not her total health.

@bobs I'm probably better than you in a rank that's very competitive. And I'm giving you my 2 cents. If you don't want to take it, then take the L and stay bad. Complain all you want, but JQ is not busted. A tier at best. Actually skill issue.
bobs ヶ月 前
@Илья Лыков am i saying is it NEVER possible to lose? of course not... i personally can miss my shots play stupid and die. thats what happens with most junker queens when you play with them... but if you aren't playing bad... then junker queen doesn't die... and is too strong... there is a reason everyone is playing her... she is effective with the cooldown buffs and heal buffs. she can bleed everyone very easily and heal off of everyone. if you decide to 1v1 her as the tank you will be wasting your time. you cant outdamage her. you might be able to stun her with a stun hero in order to actually lock her down long enough to get a whole team to jump on her. that's most likely what happens when you face a junker queen who isnt bad. also her walk animation is janky. she doesn't move smoothly. (yeah i know, skill issue and you're the best at this game. i get it bro.)

More HUD options, please!! They added new accessibility options, but from the beginning of Overwatch I've disliked how small my healthbar is. I mean, I bet it functions well enough for most people, but for me when I was starting out, there were many times I would be infuriated that I died without being given proper feedback of how much damage I was taking in fights. Sure, better tutorials on engages, peeking, environmental considerations would be nice, but even with a fair lot of experience my attention span can be really inefficient.

The mercy changes are once again some inspiration for Team Fortress 2. In TF2, the Medic's medigun does, "crit" heals when the target is below 50%. Happy to see good mechanics put into the game.

@Martin Hegedüs In TF2, crit healing isn't based on the target's HP. It's based on how long since they have last taken damage. This change is really bad for overwatch. It makes mercy pocketing even more braindead and powerful. Think about it. As mercy, you can now damage boost more often without having to worry about your target's health, since you can easily bail them out with a 67 hps heal beam which you don't even have to aim. I really like the rest of this patch, but I have no clue what they were thinking with this one.

KarQ what are your thoughts on turrets in Overwatch? My and friend group and I think they are unhealthy and just an annoying addition to the game, but we also cannot think of alternatives for heroes that have them in their kit. So what do you think?

Maybe Sym can get one powerful laser turret, but she has to remote control it/stand still… And maybe Torb can place an improved anti air turret that only shoots airborne enemies? Another Torb idea could be placing a stationary naval cannon that has to be manually operated? It would deal heavy damage with slow reload… useful for shattering rein shields.

While I do think Mercy’s nerfs have been significant it’ll definitely make a play style of tanking or GA’ing and going for cover before GA’ing again
DerpTrooper4000 ヶ月 前
The mercy changes kinda feel like a buff for pocketing a dps. You squeeze out damage boost untill they are half health and then burst them back to full with the increased healing. Probably is going to make pharmercy and sojourn mercy more annoying. And the changes to valk healing im mixed on because the constant regen was annoying to me as a winston player as she outhealed my damage with one passive ability but it seems like she can still do that?

@Alexandre de Souza and just as i sidenote there isn't a lot of cases where mercy's whole team will be full health and the mercy being low especially in teams fights and lower ranks. Overall her passive change is a buff to her ult and a nerf to pocketing
Nico Harjunpää
Nico Harjunpää ヶ月 前
@Alexandre de Souza okay so what's the problem with her ult in your mind then? The way i see it is that it's just harder to stay alive with it and that's good since good mercy players could go a full game with only dying 1 or 2 times because her ult was so powerful at keeping her alive and her mobility was insane, now that her mobility is slightly worse and her ult is stronger in some cases and weaker in others mercy will have to take more cover while damage boosting and can be extremely tanky while healing. In my mind that brings her more options since she can now tank on top of doing everything else she could do before, it didn't make her ult less versatile or weaker.
Alexandre de Souza
@Nico Harjunpää Yeah, it'll help steer mercies away from pocketing squishies like Damage so much. That's good. But I'm talking about her ult. When she's pocketing her entire team. When Valkirie was introduced it was made to make Mercy more versatile. It was great when you needed to fight, flight or support, be it with heals or damage boost. Now, you can tank damage, but only when your team is low and you're healing them. And your passive doesn't work if you do any thing else, including healing them to full health.
Nico Harjunpää
Nico Harjunpää ヶ月 前
@Alexandre de Souza because you're getting an easy win that way, mercy isn't supposed to healbot since she's inferior to other healers that way, now she just has heal more instead of just pocketing a sojourn with damge boost all game. It's an indirect small nerf to pocket sojourn/pocket pharah. Her heal time from 1 health to 200 health is the exact same and her passive heal is a little stronger if used correctly.
Alexandre de Souza
@Nico Harjunpää Why would I want to fight against an unkillable healbot Mercy? Which BTW is just gonna braindead heal spam, cause that's what lets her self-heal more. And heal spamming as Mercy is so fucking boring. But I'll have to play it first to check it out. I honestly really hate whenever Blizzard nerfs heroes because they randomly spent a month in the meta without any recent buffs.

@masift1494 for literally almost any other hero this would be true. Ball however requires extensive Map knowledge as he is dependent on health packs. His main ability, Grapple,is also INCREDIBLY dependent on knowing what you can do on any given map and how you can use the environment. Tell me in the last two points where human enemy players are necessary? None. Nobody should even consider taking Ball into quickplay before they've spent at least a little bit of time in custom matches just getting used to the maps and his movement otherwise he is literally the worst tank to play Yeah qp is for fun, but nobody is having fun while the dumbass Ball player is rolling around doing nothing and dying 90% of the match. This is a TEAM dependent game. That doesn't change because it is QP and not comp. Yeah you can be that 8yr old playing COD but nobody is going to like having you on their team in that game either
Masift ヶ月 前
@Zachary Jackson An even worse take than the QP guy. Wins/losses in QP doesn't mean anything. Quit whining and go to competitive. You are not going to learn ANYTHING playing against AIs. You might as well be playing against bronze players. You're not going to get better destroying bots as a new hero, you will learn almost nothing.

@Xickyr Nah actual bad take. Comp is the only environment you can actually learn to play a hero effectively. People do not take QP seriously, you're not going to learn much more than basic mechanics in QP.

As a rein main, I would largely say less hammer knockback is a buff, but it's sort of situational. Can definitely hurt sometimes around ledges or in tight corridors as you can knock people further from their team, but past that.. not bad overall.

@sethescope in my pov, I think they should tweak the pin hitbox to make it adaptable to everyone's hitbox. Everyone's hitbox kind of clustered when they gathered in one spot. But in exchange of lowering his pushback damage. Im sure others have a better idea than mine

@miyahara do you have any ideas for how that could be addressed? im really curious! maybe some kind of minor CC/CC-adjacent thing so the enemies will be affected to at least some degree, just not the same degree as getting squished?

The majority of these changes are great. Open queue is now somewhat balanced, MOST of the strongest heroes have been nerfed (*cough cough* still waiting for more Sojourn nerfs), heroes lacking in strength have been buffed (Rein, ball, sombra, brig). Even though I don't play or like Junkrat, I don't like his nerfs considering you basically can't one-shot enemies with him anymore unless you pull off a perfectly accurate combo (which is hard!). I personally thought he was fine, and he already had plently of ways of being countered. It's actually quite a big nerf for him and it'll affect his performance quite a lot. Mercy... oh god, Mercy. They changed her so much. Why? I get that her GA mobility is insane, but 2.5 is a little too much for her. Even in her current state, it is still very easy to counter and focus her. I would understand 2 seconds, but 2.5 seems a little much. The healing change on her staff is a little weird, and makes her healing inconsistent. 45hp/s on a normal target, 67.5hp/s on a half HP target, 60hp/s on a normal target during Valkyrie, and 90hp/s on a half HP target during Valkyrie. That 90hp/s is actually insane and will keep Mercy alive 90% of the time with her new passive. But... the passive doesn't seem very good outside of Valk. So with the new changes, Mercy gets way more survivability and value with her ultimate, but less value and survivability outside of her ultimate. I just... don't get it. She's an ultimate bot now. Why did they have to make such drastic changes? And map pools. Why even bother following through with map pools for S3? Why not just remove map pools this season? Eichenwalde is gone, Route 66 is gone, Gibraltar is still removed. Why not just remove them now instead of waiting for next season?

Ragingangel ヶ月 前
Mercy’s beam linger is 1.3 secs and res is 1.75 secs long. Having GA at 1.5 secs was a perfect synergy with those cast times. However, the extra second on GA completely destroys that synergy. Now, there will be a lot of awkward moments of waiting for the cooldown to come online and it’s going to feel so bad. The mercy changes actually incentivizes damage boost pocketing even more now. Mercy gameplay will essentially be staying back with the dps to limit GA usage and damage boosting until an ally gets below 50% to heal, then once they get to 50%, go back to damage boost. As a Mercy player, I can see myself purposefully letting teammates get below 50% before healing them so I could activate my passive.

@Jd.CD24 True. If anything blade needs to be rebuffed back to 120 damage instead of 110. Unfortunately the devs don't play the game enough and somehow think all of Genjis power is in his ultimate even though his time to kill is faster with his normal kit is faster than his blade unless he has nano/mercy dmg boost.
Jd.CD24 ヶ月 前
@HumbleHomunculus if they do that using blade will just be getting rid of genjis range making him a sitting duck with a sharpened spoon

@DizzyHotSauce A raw blade no nano no damage boost gets very little value. It is incredibly rare that you get more than 1-2 kills. Sometimes you just use it to force out trance or beat. At higher ranks Genji is incredibly bad rn.
DizzyHotSauce ヶ月 前
@HumbleHomunculus IMO they need to nerf the dash distance for Genji by like 20% (significant for genji players, I know) but bring the damage back to his primary fire. The reason why he gets so much value in his ultimate compared to anything else is because he has insane mobility with his dash.
DizzyHotSauce ヶ月 前
The main change she needs is to remove headshots from her secondary fire. Even without headshotting with the railgun, she still gets a lot of value. Headshots just seem like an unnecessarily OP addition to her kit.
