Watchpoint Radio #91: What to Do About Mercy? [/w John Horstmann]

January 17th, 2018

This week we are joined by John Horstmann of Overwatch League Daily Show to talk about OWL, Mercy, Hero 27, and more.

OWL Premiere

Overwatch League is now in full swing. Things kicked off with a bang last week, with Wednesday’s broadcast bringing in over 400k viewers. Not bad!

What to do about Mercy?

The community has been coming down hard on Mercy recently, or more specifically, Resurrect. In a game with a very long Time to Kill, Resurrect can be a real downer, and much of the community feels that way. What can we do about Mercy?

Hero 27

Jeff Kaplan has confirmed the Hero 27 is moving right along, with skins in development. He also hints that Hero 27 is meta changing.
