    Valkyrie is useless. Most of the ultimate abilities can turn around a fight. This one does nothing. Plus Mercy has a lot harder time to build up her ultimate after the nerfs.
    Almost every time you get a headshot from a sniper during that or a tracer forces you to snap your beam and hide behind corners.

    Mercy is the only hero in the game who cannot carry bad aiming players. If you damage boost a "blind rat" it feels like a 5 vs 6 because you are useless. If you heal someone who doesn't know what fights he can win than he will die because 55hps is not enough to keep one hero alive for a 1v1 fight if your beamed player is not as good as his enemy.

    I don't really care about Mercy anymore. The winrates tell everything. Just don't pick her or you will lose games in the long run, doesn't matter the rank.
    I just wish Moira wouldn't be a transvestite so I could play "him". Good Moira players go after Mercy because as a Mercy you always lose against Moira.

    TBH she's still quite a throw pick currently. She's nowhere near what they gave Torb.

    That last comment you made about Moira is horible and disgusting.

    Welcome to the internet.

    I'm actually scared of the reaper buffs.

    Maybe you should find a game more suitable to your snowflake-level sensitivities, like, say, Pong.

    I know right? It's a game character. Big deal if they're whatever they wanna be. I guess they would hate playing Taurens in wow for being cows.

    Which part? The transphobia, or the implication that she should be flanking? I mean, I don't see an infraction note on it so it's hard to tell. Or is transphobia okay here?

    On topic. Wow, they reverted Valkyrie from being an absolutely terrible ult, to being just a terrible ult. So much for no reverts...

    What is this blasphemy, Kaplan didn't introduce himself as "Jeff from the Overwatch team" at the start of the video... I feel, betrayed.

    I'm waiting for a sunset announcement so they can redirect resources to a better game.

    I knowt that isn't going to happen though - and if it did happen it would hopefully happen to HOTS first, cause yikes.
