• Mei

The ability of Mei to freeze her enemies shows that she is a better candidate for newbies.  Mei is worth learning for newbies as she has the utility, which made her be an important pick in the present 2-2-3 meta, although she is more advantageous with her kit than the great Soldier: 76. The primary fire of Mei, which called Endothermic Blaster can only expend and stream in a short range of frost, which can help to slow and completely freeze the enemies at a single moment.

She also has a secondary fire, which is more long-range that can shoot different projectile icicles without damage left on the falloff. She is more advantageous in most heroes as she can freeze her enemy on her own using the primary fire. She finishes her enemies by an icepick on their heads.

Quite some time, she was seen as a role of a cornerstone healer, which rises or falls over in the Overwatch Leagues' past seasons. Yet, she remains intuitive and accessible support that a newbie wishes to learn. Mercy is armed with great Blaster and Caduceus Staff that newbies can be successful and will refrain from making use of its Blaster unless an emergent bad situation happens.

The great Caduceus Staff of Mercy allows players to alternate whether to be damage or heal, boosting their great allies. Though the primary fire of Mercy is the one used in the healing stream, allies that have damage boosting can be switch or default to heal when it is important, which makes the teammates win and finish the match efficiently.
