    Overwatch has done it again. The patch came with some pretty big changes. Most notably D.Va's rockets and Mercy changes. The biggest being the Mercy changes. The question for me is, "Am I happy with these changes?" For my person opinion I would have to say yes.

    I was a D.Va main for almost my entire OW career. I'm pretty decent with her, but her role as a tank never suited her style and from the few rounds I played with her today. She still isn't a tank. They took away how long her Defense Matrix stays up and gave her rockets. Tanks normally take more damage then they give, but in this case, I think D.Va might be more of a bruiser. She can pump out damage and take a bunch of damage. Not to mention a nifty little escape that most tanks do not have. All in all, I think she is still viable in any situation.

    Mercy what have they done to you? (Pun intended) Nearly a complete re-work of Mercy has been done. As someone who hasn't played much or kept up with the news of OW, I wasn't aware of the changes that came out. I slowly read reddit posts, most of which just complained of her. Now with the changes in place I decided to play some rounds. She still feels like the same ole Mercy, aside from the fact she can fly now and rez a lot quicker. The thing that people liked about her was her ability to rez the whole team. Well she can't do that now. It might have been awesome but I think it is bad for the game to have a rez all feature. She now has to play on the front lines more. Which I think her style of healing should. Ana is the sniper back of the line healer.

    Will we see a rise of one shots with Mercy and D.Va like we did with the last Junkrat changes? We will see. Just expect to see /r/Competitiveoverwatch/ or /r/Overwatch to be full of Mercy related posts. I don't think D.Va will get the same attention that Mercy does. To many Mercy mains that required little amounts of skill to play her. They will come out of the woodwork...Just wait and see.
