It must be the people you're matched with because, well, you're around that skill level.
I don't evne think I've failed on Hard. Failed lots on Expert though and I've yet to finish on Legendary.
If you fail Normal, you've got some serious problems. Or maybe you're 10 years old. You can 3-man Normal, without a healer.
Did it on expert, we used Rein, Orisa, Bastion, Zen.
The eternally never nerfed Rein damage is perfect for this, enemies bunch up naturally and he just swipes them, orisa is the main shield cuz she can shoot while shielding unlike rein (still useful even if she does like 1/10 of his insane fucking OP damage) and bastion just mows shit down for breakfast. Zen is useful for being able to heal, debuff and deal dmg at the same time, which mercy can't do, and since everybody has the ability to rez, she becomes a bit obsolete.
I'm surprised anyone has trouble on normal though, that's a bit weird to me unless you run with no tank/heals, I don't know what to say.
EDIT: forgot to mention I made it after several attempts, expert felt like 5 steps harder than hard difficulty. The gap between hard and expert is gigantic.
Only played it 3x so far. First time, our Tracer and Torb dropped out early and Rein and I (as Mercy) eventually were overwhelmed defending the payload. Second time, we had a full team, me as Mercy again, and we completed it. Pretty easy + really fun. Third time, I decided to give Zen a try (I was the only healer), and we were doing well until the very end where Genji went off alone, out of my LoS, he died, and then it just snowballed with us failing.
I really like the mode, though, and I can see it being fun to try out new heroes (practicing aiming, warming up, etc.). I'll play it again.

I played the normal Uprise twice as Mercy, on normal and hard, with very little difficulty. Then I did Uprising with any character, picked Orisa and cheesed it with her shields, on the highest difficulty. Though grinding through normal for the rest of my boxes, I did get a few bad people/groups that failed, because either we lacked a healer, or healers were just that bad.

"Hero" is what they've all been saying. This world, it isn't worth the saving."
yeah i always think it's really funny how people who complain about game balance can't kill some bots
they stand still for you to shoot them
its so easy <_____<
I'm not going there to die. I'm going to find out if I'm really alive. I have to.

Her dash will "confuse" bots. They'll stop shooting and look startled for a second or two. It's basically a stun.
If you pop behind the shield guys, there's a big glowing weak spot. Shoot it, shield short out and collapses. Easy pickings.
If you pop behind Bastion, his usual big glowing weak spot still exists.
When I ran her on Normal to clear out the "use every hero" achievement, it was cake. Even though they're not doing a lot of damage in that mode, I barely TOOK damage, because bots were mostly confused or far enough away I was dodging. While she's not great for dealing with Bastions solo, Rein is. And like I said; she annihalates those shield guys, and takes away the threat of the massed regular dudes.
I've done the 4 base characters on easy, hard, and expert. I was able to clear legendary in the arcade using Bastion, Mercy, Ana, Rein.

She's not as ideal as something like your own Bastion, but she's not as terrible as some people are setting her out to be. They're just not realizing;
A> her teleport distracts/confuses the bots, as a hard-coded feature (it's not just that their AI tries to locate you; there's a stun animation involved as they get confused)
B> She can target weak points by jumping behind things really easily, which makes up for lower DPS

Did the normal/easy one today (first day back to OW in like four months)
Played Tracer and outside of the four game-drops (went back to main menu and re-joined the game within like 30 seconds) it was fairly easy.
I'll probably work on the other difficulties tonight and tomorrow
