General Discussion
Highly Rated
News flash: if you're getting a bunch of posts about one issue, MAYBE THAT MEANS THAT ISSUE IS A BIG ONE AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED IMMEDIATELY RATHER THAN JUST HAVE THOSE COMPLAINING ABOUT IT BE REDIRECTED TO A MEGATHREAD THAT WILL JUST BE IGNORED.

And don't lie to us saying that the Megathread is just about "more easily reviewing feedback". The fact that EVERY CHANGE TO VALKYRIE HAS ONLY BEEN NERFS means that the Megathread itself is being ignored, and the fact that the most popular and agreed upon solution to Mercy, a Revert, hasn't happened yet, means that the Devs don't CARE what the general playerbase wants, and only care about what their precious "Pro or Streamer" DPS-Onetricks want.
Enjoy your lock, friend.

EDIT: Seems like y'all are misinterpreting my tone. I'm not trying to make fun of OP. I'm just pointing out all threads like these get locked and sent to echo chamber hell.

Enjoy your lock, friend.


Of course. After all, it would be TERRIBLE for such a post to exist. Can't have anyone call out the Higher-Ups and their problems, right?

OOF
Seriously people... CENSORSHIP, MONEY LEADING THE WAY TO RELENTLESS GUTTINGS, DEAFENING SILENCE AND OTHER CONTROVERSIES.

It's time to bring this topic up to all the gaming youtubers you can, here are a few of the many:

You think a bunch of Mercy mains on the Overwatch forums represent the "general playerbase"? You can't be serious.

Also, explain why balancing for the competitive side of the game is a bad thing, please?

ALSO, good grief! For people who complain about toxicity every day, you sure don't act any better.

Yep. Took the word out of my mouth. This is a dictatorship. Deleting ideas you don't like is some 1984 doublespeak crap.
means that the Devs don't CARE what the general forum wants


Fixed that for you.

This place is full of entitlement, so I don't blame them.

Edit: The general forums are for EVERYTHING related to Overwatch. If you want to flood it with Mercy threads and then start crying "communism" when they get locked or deleted, I think you're being selfish.

Although then again, I already said there was a lot of entitlement here, so the edit isn't that necessary.

When did i say that was a bad thing? I would LOVE for the game to be balanced! And you know one of the most UNBALANCED characters at the moment? MERCY. And why is that? Because Rez should have never been an ability in the first place, and should have stayed as her ultimate.

But NO! How DARE anyone counter a (near) team wipe Q-Press with their OWN Q-Press! After all, that wouldn't be FUN to FACE OR WATCH IN OUR PRECIOUS OVERWATCH LEAGUE

Woah, woah, woah, woah, hold up there! Censorship of a vocal minority on a gaming forum = Communism? That's stupider than the time someone compared defending xQc to defending Hitler. What is wrong with you, General Discussion?

No, I understood your tone. I think a lot of other people misunderstood though.

If you thought Ryujehong, Tobi, and other support mains in the League were happy with playing Mercy instead of the support heroes they've been known for, I don't know what to tell you.

You know what? I'm glad Blizzard doesn't listen to you. If I were a game developer, I'd only listen to feedback that's well-written, non-biased, and well-formatted.

Oh PLEASE!

Mercy was NEVER a Must pick before her rework, only afterwards. The reason Mercy was above Ana was because Ana had NO way to protect herself (that's since changed with the damage buff) and there was no other Main healer than her (that has also since changed with the addition of Moira).

If we returned Mercy to her original state now, with the only change being the new GA, then she would still be on practically the SAME LEVEL as Moira and Ana in terms of being a viable main healer. (Actually, she'd actually be picked LESS in the professional scene than Ana or Moira would)

I found some more....


Thank you for showing some of the MANY instances where people's thoughts have been silenced and quarantined to a Megathread that's just ignored.

Of course, we are unable to get links to ALL of the examples, due to the fact that many are simply outright DELETED, not just shut down.
