The current state of Overwatch’s Mercy might make for a disappointing World Cup tournament. According to a post on the Competitive Overwatch subreddit, her latest buffs are making games longer and a more boring event for spectators as easy resurrects counter big plays.
Here's all the Overwatch updates promised and planned for the near future.
Mercy’s resurrection was recently moved from her ultimate ability, which players have to charge up over time, to her E, which is on a 30 second cooldown. Her new ultimate also provides an extra charge of this resurrect, and makes her able to fly and heal more effectively. She is easily the current best healer and support in the game, meaning both teams in every match will have one permanently.
