Mercy changes are great for teamplay

PTR Feedback
Like the Roadhog changes which made teammates important for finishing off kills.
This Mercy change means teammates are important to complete a res.

Remember, Overwatch is a team game. As time goes on, Tanks and other players will slowly learn to protect Mercy while she's using res.

They havn't learned to protect you outside of ressing so far, why do you think this is going to change that? If anything it's going to make it worse.
We should give Gengi a 5 minute dragon dance animation before he ults,
I am sure it does not only boost team play,
but also allows both team to drop their weapons and start dancing,
this will greatly solve the toxicity issue in game.

Or not
I'm actually expecting more people to blame Mercy players.
When you try to rez someone but team doesnt protect: "Why did you go out of position!?"
When you don't rez someone cause it's risky: "Why didnt you Rez me?!"

Of course, the amount of flack/toxicity/abuse you get for being a support in this game is the reason I mostly DPS these days. It's simply not worth the stress.
Why so many dislikes on the OP? Seems like a pretty reasonable conclusion to me.

Because what op claims will likely to happen in the ideal world,
where everyone actually knows how to protect their backlines.

In reality, this is what will happen
"This braindead Mercy did not rez me"
"Go uninstall you one trick Mercy"
"kys Mercy"

Hey, I never said those other people were wrong, much less whether I was one of those people...
I agree it wont hit people who play in stacks as hard as it will solo queue teams.
You guys are such wusses.

Catering game balance choices around folks with poor decision making skills simply because they might say abusive things and deflect blame as a result?

Things people will always do regardless of the actual state of the game? No way! Screw those guys! Anything that makes guys like that lose more frequently can only be good for the playerbase overall.
