I think I’m starting to grasp a better understanding on why Val is considered such a bad pick as a medic.
With the new buff instated on her self heal, she is really close to with the other medic (besides Cheese Caira but that’s her thing) at keeping herself alive long enough for her teammates to cover her.
The main issue I have seen with playing her is that she cannot heal a single target fast enough and AOE damage really overwhelms her ability to keep her support support alive, which is really the only thing that can help keep her alive.
R.I.P. Val pick.
