Accepted, appreciated or hated - It’s about your pick, not your performance.
As an example: I just finished a game playing Moira, where I was top healer of both teams and without sounding cocky or anything, I do believe that I made a very big impact in the game, countering Genji for one.
Now, this game was not unique, because after we won and the game was over, team mates said “Thank you Mercy!”
if it was an Ana, it would have been “Thank you Ana!”.
But as Moira or even Lucio, you will never hear or read such words.
Because you are by default useless and people don’t like you, no matter how many times you save their lives, even if you totally carry them.
Parasitic heroes that feel unfair to face have a stain on their name (Moira, Lucio, Brigitte most of all). And it’s understandable, I would be much happier if these heroes were not in the game so I won’t thank people who play them.
Look, the game has to have heroes that are easy to get value out of. Otherwise half the players would just leave.
I’m sorry if someone playing a low aim hero bothers you, maybe just learn to counter them instead of complaining.
People complain about mercy being too easy to play as well but all of the supports mentioned take a lot of gamesense and awareness to get right, especially on higher ranks.
I’m sorry if there exists a counter to your main pick, deal with it like everyone else does. People will play these heroes regardless of your opinion.
It’s mostly because some supports are more notisable than others. Unless you win a clutch battle with your ult you just get complained about.
I had a game where our tank kept calling both of the supports useless (used an abelist word) while we were continuously fighting for our lives against a sombra and a genji that our tank systematically ignored in favour of going for the enemy tank that was enjoying a double pocket.
We only made some headway after the ana and i stopped caring about the toxic tank and just kept our dps healthy instead, because they at least helped us when we got jumped on.
True. You can easily climb with her, you just have to abuse other people’s lack of gamesense and awareness.
I can carry games in plat/diamond with her without “playing with my team”. She isn’t difficult to get value. Just had the worst utility of all the supports right now. I can do the same but much easier playing Bap, but I have fairly good aim.
