    Speaking of weird Mercy fuck noises, it took me way too long to realize that I wasn't hearing a Mercy death rattle when I would spam Junkrat bombs. There's a specific bomb sound effect that sounds exactly like a moaning Mercy and it fucks me up inside literally every time, just because it's so out of place next to all the other, more normal bomb sounds.

    Edited:

    I swear I'm not crazy, look, you can hear it exactly at like 1:16.

    Interesting note speaking of this
    I noticed that there was a 'help' button on the voice wheel in the beta, which was removed

    y'know, because nobody needs to be able to call for help, but god forbid they can't say "Thank you"
    Lacking voiceline wheel is probably one of the most disappointing things in Overwatch. There should be much, much more, such as no, sorry, wait, cheers/jeers, etc

    I am so fucking sick and tired of triple or quadruple gold medal'ing every single fucking match and still fucking losing. How the fuck am i supposed to fucking win at this game? It feels like a random number generator. Why does my own personal skill seem so fucking irrelevant to whether i win or lose? I fucking cleared the enemy team, died, and then got to watch 5 of my teammates stand around attempting to kill a lucio so we could cap, and then getting instantly cleared out when their team comes back because they're too busy attempting to hit the fucker. Im always on the mic trying to coordinate and talk and give info but no one seems interested in listening or communicating. Fuck, the only reason i even won a game today is the enemy got tilted and left after the first (close) round of koth.

    Edited:

    Does it get better in gold? Plat? Diamond?
    Even at diamond passive teammates and people who can't hit a fucking tracer are a massive problem.

    Edited:

    On that note, lost 2 games in a row due to passive teams, someone needs to get the fucking matchmaking sorted. People just don't fucking go in.

    I don't know what youre referring to. All junkie's bombs' do is make assorted ticking noises and pop (save for his passive ability in which actually make a cackling noise?). Are you sure its not just junkie's hee-hee hoo-hoo laughter? He does it constantly when engaging/shooting. Laying traps is a finer example

    tho i think i misread what youre asking and just wanted to clarify its not the bombs making those sounds. at least i hope they dont...

    I figured it was the sound of Mercy taking damage for the longest time, only then did I eventually catch on that it was some weird whispy sound from junkrat

    Regardless of viability, being able to pull back your team's idiocy of running into four ults by rezing them is a pretty good game changer.

    Yeah he just removes a lot of depth from the game and forces everything to be about playing footsies at choke points until you're ready to Q press.

    If Reinhardt ever fell out of the meta, it probably would be the most interesting meta we've ever had.

    I still haven't seen a Mercy main who isn't unbearably fucking awful. They just spend the entire game baiting for stats.

    Mercy is a textbook example of a pubstomper. She excels in an uncoordinated environment while sucking hard in competitive play.

    Even Grandmaster is still just a pub and nothing like a real competitive match.

    A lot of teams dont pick a healer until someone begrudingly switches, and if you cant aim, Mercy is your best bet.

    If there's gonna be absolutely visual no indiction whatsoever that you're being frozen by Mei, can they at least fix their fucking sound system so the sound plays?

    my aim isnt reliable enough to be a good ana and i get more healing done whenever i play mercy. im terrible at aiming in general so if i wanna play the game and win at the same time mercy is my only real choice (you could say lucio too but i hate his character, the way he plays, literally everything about him.) im not like where i have 300 hours in mercy and nothing in anybody else though. i have 120 on mercy, #2 being 33 on ana and #3 being 12 on junkrat. mercy is the only hero i have time in that has a winrate above 50% too (most are below 40%)

    I still haven't seen a Mercy main who isn't unbearably fucking awful. They just spend the entire game baiting for stats.
    what do you even mean by baiting for stats? the only stats she can do are healing and rezzing and if youre doing both youre doing your job.

    Absolutely. And it's good to have heroes that people can get into and do well as without much training. Where Roadhog really shines is his M2 meatshots and somewhat barrier-breaking, and that takes a lot more skill to do reliably.

    Constantly needlessly letting people die just so she can rez and just standing way too fucking far back, meaning they're basically utterly useless in a teamfight and you get rezzed into 6 ults.

    Seeing as he's now Fat Reaper.

    Before he was Fat McCree, now he's both in pretty much every matchup, except for maybe vs Pharah.

    i guess, i personally play mercy like medic in TF2 is played. i never dive in across the map putting myself in harms way to save a person thats about to die (usually flankers), put walls in-between me and the enemy and stay behind cover, healing up people that are near dying first before topping everyone off, damage boosting DPS and people that are ulting. most rezzes i get end up being like 2 or 3 if it seems like they wont immediately get fucked up, with team rezzes being kinda rare since im not great at whole game sense of who most likely has their ults, so i dont tend to hold onto it as i more than often end up getting murdered by a flanker or something.
