We will likely be iterating on these changes in the coming weeks

I do not see a guarantee or promise made, so what lie are you talking about
I do feel lied to.

I feel betrayed.

I feel like a fool for defending the developers and saying that they aren't going to be impulsive about these changes.

And now there have been no "iterations".

None.

Zero.

"Likely" indeed.
Lies man, lies.
I don’t mind. I’m happy Mercy’s nerf went live. I finally get to play a support I enjoy playing.

Yes, as long as Rez is an ability, she’ll still be a must-pick. The demand for Mercy, however, will decrease and other unhappy Mercy mains can play someone other than Mercy.
Hahahah git mad, begone moth

Anyone who has been following Overwatch for more than a day knows that initial ptr changes go live as is 99.9% of the time.
Jeff said in the developer update that if these changes put Mercy too far down they will fix her.
Tbh, I doubt there was enough playtime on the PTR to iterate on. I wonder if there's a way it could be incentivised more.
PTR = Preview test region

Lies man, lies.


They said 'likely', not a lie man, not a lie.

I ask how long that will take at this point.

The major problem with these updates is simple: it's WAY TOO SLOW TO BE THIS WRONG.

Either you do incremental changes quickly to try to get data to balance quickly

OR

take a lot of time and get the balance right.

Blizzard does:

Take a lot of time, ignore feedback shown via PTR, get it wrong, repeat.

I have no confidence that Blizzard will do that in a timely manner. And like I said: unlike Roadhog, there's not many healers that can fill the primary healer position that Mercy did. Ana, and MAYBE moira. That's it.
Lots of reading comprehension fails here

Oh come on, you were really expecting them to actually change anything on PTR after Ironclad Bastion got through untweaked?
My brother is a mercy main so I'll probably get to hear all about this later.
