Blizzard has gone up with the latest build of Overwatch in its Public Test Realm, where new hero adjustments have brought yet another nerf for Mercy and one for Junkrat.
Mercy and Junkrat have both become mainstays of Overwatch competitive play, with Mercy's Valkyrie ability and healing skills making her a game-changer, while Junkrat's high damage output has transformed him into a force to be reckoned with. While lead designer Geoff Goodman notes that "Junkrat has been enjoying the flexibility his double-charge Concussion Mine provides", he says "it has now become a bit too easy to throw out huge bursts of damage in a large area".
Overwatch hero Mercy, on the other hand, is still getting nerfed as Valkryie has gotten a whole slew of tweaks. It seems that nerfs, nerfs never change - a moment of silence for all of the Mercy mains out there. Presumably the goal continues to be enabling her to Resurrect, but not so often that she undoes a well-worked triple-kill by the enemy team. She also no longer receives a bonus charge for Resurrect during the ultimate and the speed boost granted to Guardian Angel with the ultimate has been decreased by 50 percent.
Blizzard changed Mercy because the team thinks the character is still too powerful, even after previous nerfs.
He also said that while previous changes to Mercy's Resurrect have allowed people to counter her more easily, her ability to use Resurrect through Valkyrie made the changes moot. "Additionally, we're toning back the amount of mobility Valkyrie provides through Guardian Angel and reducing its duration to overall reduce the power of this ability".
