to summarise the Overwatch Artbook Drama for everyone rn we missed out on:
tall black man with an hourglass figure in a nurturing, caring, support role as the saviour of the team with a rez skill and potentially still having a thing with genji b/c where are our gay male characters blizzard??
white mercy’s tunic as hospital scrubs, or least with pants and pockets instead of just… leggings and nothing practical whatsoever
gabriel as a BDSM ghost in a boob-revealing corset, a shirt with hip slits, or a literal studded thong
junkrat as vinny from the disney atlantis movie
mccree’s as a gross racist white dude? like… confederate flag and everything
blizzard: mercy has 100% pickrate in comp and no one wants to play the other healers which means she’s too op so we have to nerf her
me climbing up to jeff kaplan’s ear: maybe the reason people only pick mercy isn’t because she’s overpowered but because all the other healers are extremely underpowered and picking mercy as a healer is the only thing that makes sense in winning a game anymore because none of the other healers have abilities that can keep their team alive as efficiently as mercy. this isn’t a problem with mercy jeff, keeping the team alive is what a healer is supposed to do. so maybe instead of nerfing mercy and making her unable to do that, you should be buffing your other three healers so they can be as valuable of a team asset as mercy and make your game actually fair and balanced for support mains for once in your miserable life.
