One of the beauties of games like Overwatch is that there’s a great wealth of variety given to players in terms of character choices. Each one plays a certain (and different) way, which is saying something given there are almost 30 characters in the roster. And as such, no matter what kind of players you are, you can more than likely find someone who truly speaks to you. Other times though, you think that one style of play isn’t worth your time. In the case of healing, one player wants to make a case for Zenyatta.
What’s wrong with healing in Overwatch? Nothing in and of itself, it’s just that some people would rather focus on killing enemies than healing allies. Which is their choice, of course. But, for Redditor CherryThePanPyro, Zenyatta is the perfect balance between offensive damage, and non-committal healing that players are looking for.
They admit that at first, they didn’t try the character, but once they did, they loved it:
“Recently, I’ve found myself starting to love Zenyatta as a healer, because he actually has a decent amount of damage to deal, while also healing my team!”
Because of Zenyatta and its various abilities such as Discord, they were able to turn several matches around, and secure victory for their team. So, they ask that others give the robot a try, it might surprise them when they give it a chance.
Sadly, not everyone was convinced by their argument. In fact, several other Redditors noted that one should only play as Zenyatta if there’s another healer (like Mercy) on their squad.
However, there are those who like Zenyatta, and some who were convinced to try it out. Now, whether they stick with it is their choice. But hey, progress, right? Have you ever tried to use Zenyatta? What are your experiences with it? Let us know in the comments below!
