amazing block when genji got trapped
This is a really nice highlight reel to showcase a lot of the not-so-obvious plays that Mei can make to really help her team.
That 1hp headshot won me though
The mei we all need but not the one we deserve.
ahwww. I love that you protected someone in your Ice Cube. Cute. Have an upvote!
[Sarah ThiccLachlan's "In the Thighs of an Angel" playing]
I love the one where you wall up the sleeping Tracer and sit on her with your ice block, and you can see her say thanks. Some wholesome Overwatch. Definitely inspires me to play Mei more.
plays like these are why I love playing Mei. I wish I had better game sense, though, so I can try playing her in comp
While these saves are awesome, What really kills me is this incredible wall accuracy.
over 40 hours with her and i still fail spectacularly at placing walls.
This is why I dislike the stat based SR system. It simply can't account for things like this.
Mei has the original Fortify ability.
Damn you even block Rein's charge with your ice cube on that last clip. Solid mei plays.
Papa jeff is gonna see this and be like "yeah drop that, no mei changes needed"
Now I want to become a Mei main and be as cool as you
The clip where you headshoted mercy with 1hp. Holy fuck!
I consider my specialty in Overwatch doing unconventional (or at least just well timed) things to save team mates. From as simple as a Zarya bubble during a charge or hook, to flash bangs just so a Sombra can hack someone.
I don't think I've ever thought to use Ice Block like that.
I could see a million different frag compilations and never even care. Almost anyone can string together some decent headshots or big ults.
But this is one of the better OW compilations I've ever seen. Smart, team saving, well timed plays. Great stuff.
I always love your highlights! You seem like a very kind person, but dear god I would hate to have you as red Mei in comp.
Meanwhile my friend walls me in with the entire enemy team
Mei was my favorite character to play when I started playing her. I remember at the beginning inception of release when Genji was OP , shutting down genij's and realizing. "I did this"
This is why I love playing Mei :)
This gif makes me want to get good at Mei....
Nobody ever compliments you when you save their life as Mei, but whenever you screw up your wall even slightly and it's only up for just a second you see "WTF MEI U NOOB???".
It took me 3 watches and a pause to see in that first clip that the Mei saved Mercy from Roadhog's hook, that's some crazy awareness and reaction
10 seconds after these plays:
“ffs switch Mei you aren’t doing anything!”
I usually get more compliments (or frustrated insults) from the enemy team, than my own when I play her.
God blocking that Rein on the stairs on Hanamura, I literally heard his glory boner deflate.
Is that a pro mei?
THAT'S A PRO MEI! AMEIZING!
You're so kind to protect other players like this <3
All my latest attempts at comp have been so toxic I just about cried. Not towards me but towards each other... DPS going after each other, throwing games because they're sure someone else is throwing... as a healer it breaks my heart when the team just shuts down. I don't care if we lose as long as we fight together.... but every single game has broken into fighting and it sucks.
Seeing plays like this make me want to play overwatch again. Keep playing, look out for each other, have fun <3
Yes they do. But don’t act like they don’t take lives as well.
People don't realise how versatile Mei is. I've gotten so good at saving people from Roadhog's hooks now, and it's always nice when people notice.
Same with prematurely freeing teammates from Junk's traps. :)
Support Mei meta restores my faith in humanity.
The realaity of using all your cooldowns when only one is needed.
another mei main. awesome!
I think we need to add
LucheMei to the tank roster.
Also, blocking the respawning team from their last stand on payload is an underrated technique.
Ice block on ice wall is like the biggest middle finger
But thigh highs are my demise
I was playing a bunch of Mei last night after all the hubbub about Mei not needing an overhaul... I agree with Jeff she doesn't. I think she needs more slow on her primary fire so she can actually freeze targets like Tracer and Genji and she'll be fine. I don't think she even needs to be regarded as a niche pick. She's useful in many scenarios if you want to roll with a more defensive minded squad. This video highlights some of that ability. She should be anti flanker and protective offtank.
the mei that we need but don't deserve.
How much shit did you get for maining Mei in comp long enough to get her golden gun?
Wall+Iceblock on the sleeping target was brilliant.
Is that a pro Mei?
The tragic thing is, you can do a hundred awesome team mate saves with the ice wall or cryo freeze, and yet it only takes one heat-of-the-moment mistake for everyone to practically report you.
I love the momma Mei playstyle
"Mei is not a tank"
I love playing Mei. Excited for the buffs. I think they should up her ammo I find myself reloading all the time after the freeze and they escape before the kill. Hopefully a tiny bit more ammo reserve and fix alt vanishing on death thing. Those would really bring Mei back to top teir for me.
I wish I could have even half that accuracy with walls. Every time I think I'm going to pull off some slick wall placement to save my team or screw the opposing team, it shoots up 10 feet beyond where I was aiming or 6 inches in front of me.
This completely changes how I view Mei.
My favorite Mei main. Love your stuff, makes me want to play Mei all the time
I feel that Mei's meta game is going to evolve more and more into more of a support class than the stereotypical defense like the rest of the heroes in the class. Reason being, she can only really 1v1 select heros and thrive in the shadows. She isn't the most obvious hero on the field like Bastion, or a hanzo arrow. People underestimate how much of a demon she used to be
I didn't know Domfist's ult actually "emanates" from the point where he drops (and thus blocked by Mei blocking in front of Mercy). I always thought it was just a big AoE damage on the whole circle, with more damage done the closer to the center.
I always want to get better a Mei, but I feel like it isn't worth my teammates tilting.
Your reaction time, gamesense, thoughtfulness, and precision are what separates you from me.
Because when I attempt to do that, I fail so miserably that my entire team reports me for throwing. :(
that wall into iceblock on top of the sleeping teammate to protect them was insane. I literally would never have thought to stand on a teammate and iceblock to give them iceblock too
I haaate fighting against mei. soo annoying.
why i love Mei reason #378
I think I might go back to being a Mei main. Something about her just clicks with me in a way other heroes don't.
Stuff like this I know is situational, but I still think Mei deserves a higher pick rate. She really can be a lifesaver in many situations, especially if she's grouped up and not trying to play flanker. She actually works when people user her as defense. I'd love to see an OWL team actually play her for more than 5 seconds to stall at a final point.
Wow, that's a tactician Mei player. Very clever, lifting the sleeping Tracer up was really creative!
Mei has an awesome kit, well played. I wish they would decrease her cooldowns and wall strength to help her feel more in line with the fast pace of the game
Top notch stuff. Pretty disappointing that Mei is so niche (or at least considered to be niche) when her skills are so unique. Kind of the same with Ana; there's literally no other skill in the game that prevents healing. It's quite a death sentence for the team if you land it on 2 people.
After being discriminated her entire life.. Called names such as, "el diablo, the devil, ice devil, etc. Mei has made it her duty to redeem herself and clear her name!
You were definitely right about the title
That last second headshot on Mercy though
Friendly reminder to fave this Mei-n. Every time you see Havannaz' vids you WILL learn something!
Mei is more than a stall character.
A nice, wholesome Mei appreciation post.
We don't get enough of these.
I usually don't get hype over things that happen in games like this. Like some people piss off their roommates screaming every time a D.Va bomb wipes their team or something it seems like, but I never get that excited.
There are two exceptions to that:
1)Hitting a nutty-ass Hog hook and instantly deleting someone
2) Mei completely saving teams like this.
Every time something like this happens I am SCREAMING. Holy shit, thank you to all Mei(n)s out there. Your work is not unappreciated.
Now everytime I see a support mei compilation I immediately assume it's Hav. Also can we talk about that Griefhardt rein's body sliding like the ground was ice?
Team full of this kind of players and you could take on Spitfire, I mean that's some epic play right there. Team player $100%
This is so red Mei, last blue Mei I played with managed to put a wall in my face while I was in the middle of my nano boosted barrage as Pharah making me kill myself.
That mercy headshot in Hanamura was sick
until i can learn to see at least 1 second into the future i will never be good at this game, the last second before I die on my screen never makes it into the reality of my death cam. Starting up that Rein counter charge, dropping that Orisa shield, exploding that junk mine, pulling any trigger for the last 5 hp of the guy about to kill me. None of that shit happens even with sub 50 ping 57ish fps.
I've gotta have some network settings wrong but i'm really not tech savvy enough to figure it out, and i've really gotten tired of searching forums for a cause/solution.
You meis have some God damn composure. All those slept allies.. I might have walled or ice blocked them as well, but not before tea bagging them.
This is clearly every red Mei in existence.
Playing without a crosshairs is a bit beyond my understanding even on Winston.
