10/17/2017 02:19 PMPosted by VenusArmani Can we get a new Mercy thread to direct feedback towards? The one being redirected towards has hundreds of outdated posts and contains a lot misinformation at this point because it was started two iterations ago. The whole first page is just complaining about the nature of the ptr forum.

I understand why we need a mega thread but can we get a new one?


Super great idea. Here you go:

Thanks for the call out and keeping us on our toes. :)
This issue is resolved. Thanks for being patient and the fast reports. Cheers!
Hey folks we've identified the problem loading this map and we're working on resolving the issue now.
Hey everyone,

Following today's patch ( 1.16.0.2 v40570), we've seen an increase in threads sharing feedback about Mercy's recent hero balance updates, detailed below.

To help consolidate these conversations and provide a consistent place for players to voice their thoughts and opinions, we've created this dedicated feedback thread. If you have feedback you'd like to share regarding the latest changes to Mercy (or about Mercy's kit in general), please post it here.

Mercy
  • Guardian Angel
    • Players can now glide past a targeted ally using the jump key
    • Cooldown no longer resets when Resurrect is activated
  • Valkyrie
      • No longer resets or reduces Resurrection’s cooldown
      • Now gives players a bonus resurrection charge

    Developer Comments: Valkyrie no longer resets or reduces Resurrect’s cooldown. Instead, it now provides an extra 'charge,' allowing you to revive an ally even if it is still on cooldown. If the bonus charge hasn’t been spent when Valkyrie ends, it will be removed.

    This method makes Resurrect more flexible when used with Valkyrie. For example, in the past if you wanted to resurrect two teammates, you had to revive the first target, then activate Valkyrie (causing the Resurrect’s cooldown to reset), and then revive the other target. With this change, you can now activate Valkyrie and fly in quickly to resurrect both targets instantly.

    However, this still reduces the overall number of Resurrects that Mercy can provide, since Valkyrie no longer reduces its cooldown.


    A few additional notes:
    • One-off threads will likely be locked and redirected to this thread
    • Posts NOT related to Mercy feedback will be removed from this thread
    • Inappropriate or harassing posts (i.e. using profanity, calling out devs or other players, being hostile) will also be removed from this thread and, depending on the severity of the post itself, its author penalized
    • If the frequency of incoming feedback posts about Mercy's changes lessens, this dedicated thread will be removed and new player threads can resume as normal
    • This thread may not receive a response from development, but its contents and conversations will be closely monitored by the Overwatch team


    Thank you so much for your assistance! And, as always, thank you for working with us and helping us make Overwatch as fun and enjoyable as possible.

    Hey folks,

    We've identified an issue with control point maps and have temporarily removed them from the map rotation. We're working on a fix and expect to be able to enable control point within a few hours. Thanks for your patience, sorry for this issue.

    GENERAL UPDATES

    • Wall Ride
