Sneaky Mercy Victory Play Reminds Overwatch Players to Forget About Lost Points

As a defender in Overwatch, it's essential to forget about Point A once it has already been captured.

Blizzard has been making some major balance changes to Overwatch lately. Their most recent patch applied changes to 11 heroes. Roadhog, after receiving a buff that has resulted in Hogs in nearly every game, is getting a nerf soon.

In this clip, none of those changes matter — Mercy's wings alone are enough to secure this team a victory.

The clip above was posted to the Overwatch subreddit Friday by u/DeutschePro. The clip begins with a fight on Point A with the player, Mercy, attempting to capture the point. Despite at least three enemy defenders being alive, none of them choose to actually fight on the point and they quickly lose it. This aloofness is a bit of foreshadowing for what's to come.

For some reason, the fight continues on Point A — well after it has been captured. Not only does the fight continue, but the enemy team gets a few picks. At this point, they must have really been feeling themselves, because they just hang out there looking to continue fighting.

Mercy, like the rest of us, probably wonders what the other team is attempting to accomplish here. She knows at least three enemies are still hanging around at Point A, and maybe the rest of the team is on the way. Thus, she pops her Valkyrie and uses the speed boost to take the left route in Hanamura straight towards Point B. With only one tick needed for victory, she comfortably caps Point B with the enemy team nowhere in sight.
