Reverend Anderson, apparently.

Part 2 of 2, with some nice behind-the-scenes stuff to savor...

House is on Amazon Prime now, apparently. Prime Video seems a bit lacking to me, but this is a good acquisition. Although the price is going up by $20/year...

Since we're on the topic, here are a couple recent fun rezzes I did, from my friend's POV.

In this one, I fly in from the right side (you can't really see me), to a hidden spot kind of below the corpse. Then I fly to my team.

This is a pretty safe rez, using the pillar, getting in and out quickly. My Zarya was there to bubble me, but it wasn't needed, because the enemies didn't notice me. By the time they realize what happened, you should already be flying away.

You have to realize when a teammate has gone too far (overextended) and can't be saved. Don't let their bad positioning get you killed too. This is rough at early levels, but it doesn't go away. People will have bad positioning for as long as you play Overwatch.

At the same time, it's possible to pull off some very tricky resurrections. My best rezzes happen either instantly or after a waiting period when the enemy team has moved on and assumes the rez is not happening.

You can do some fun things with line of sight. If your teammate died on one side of a pillar or wall, you can start rezzing there, and move behind during the cast. The resurrect only breaks from distance, and the distance is generous. Also try this vertically. Let's say your teammate died on a bridge or overhang. You can fly up from below, start the rez, and (holding jump to fall slowly) swoop underneath. I've done this at times when the fight is still happening above.

Mercy's pistol is the least important part of her kit. Use it occasionally or during downtime, but usually you will have something more important to do. I use my pistol less if I'm grouped with a damage-dealer I really trust... because I would rather be damage boosting them.

Don't get frustrated if you die rezzing, especially right now. You have to test the limits.

Youtube has a lot of good Mercy guides if you're interested.

I would not worry about competitive anytime soon. I definitely started it too early and should have waited. In the mean time, don't fret too much about wins and losses. There are 12 players in a given match, and sometimes you just can't do enough. Instead of getting frustrated with dumb teammates and losses, focus on self-improvement and think about what you could have done better. This is a good mindset to have on Mercy, because much of your job is compensating for or reversing your teammates' mistakes.

I can't get over how good the Childish Gambino video is. I watch it several times a day.

same here, I didn't have any FPS experience as well, so I started playing Mercy because 1) it seemed easy and 2) nobody else wanted to heal, lol. soon I realized how fun it was, and I have barely touched another hero since.

it's very satisfying when you learn how to position yourself and be able to be in a middle of a fight without dying.  I need to improve my decision making though. I die sometimes trying to revive people in impossible situations, and sometimes when I see an opponent with low HP I try to use my gun instead of healing my team mates which often just ends with me getting a kill and my team mates dying. I tried some competitive matches, but that was way to hard at this point.

moira seems fun too, and Lucio is crazy when you can handle him. I want to try them out sometimes. having a good healer in your team can do all the difference it seems.

btw, I just got play of the game with Mercy. what the fuck did everyone else doing??
