Overwatch's Mercy is a "support" hero, which in layman's terms means she's mopping up trails of blood left behind after Overwatch battles. Mercy's job is to heal her weak teammates, assisting them as they lay waste to enemies.

And if you ask him, the best Mercy players are no one's helpers.


The Overwatch League's leaked code of conduct gives Blizzard and the OWL an incredible amount of control over players, including anything that happens on their own streams, so part of the latest punishment for a heated gaming moment comes as no surprise.

The Houston Outlaws extended their 16-map unbeaten streak to 18 before the San Francisco Shock finally snapped it in the third map, but that was just a blip en route to a fifth straight match win.
