So I'm playin' Mercy, defending on Volskaya, and it's not going well. For some insane reason I spent the first push on top of the truck at the main choke, which gave me a perfect vantage to heal dudes on both this side and that other side of the truck - and made it dead simple for a McCree to body me from the attacker's side of the choke.
We're almost-instantly shoved off point A, and we huddle up on point B. Our DPS (3 DPS, 1 tank) constantly pushed too far forward, but spawn advantage ensured we held on okay - but our Ana was growing sick of sitting on the point while I dallied with our damage, and getting jumped by the red McCree that was repeatedly flanking us.
Our show begins just before the final straw for Ana - I zip back to the point to answer her calls, just in time to not notice where the McCree was. He takes me out (again), and then he takes her - and now the reds are pouring on to the point. They're taking it.
Ana switches to McCree, and I'm dashing back. D.Va jumps, solo, on to the point to contest it - one versus five - and is almost-instantly popped out of her mech. I can't save her, but I can use the trajectory of her mech to Guardian Angel up to the high ground overlooking the point... where I can see that goddamned red McCree chilling up on the high ground across from me. I know what he's doing - I know he's salivating at the thought of wrecking us all with High Noon, now that there's no Defense Matrix (D.Va's mech) to stop him.
But our Bastion is down. D.Va is down, and I want to get our only tank back up.
But that McCree's got his ult, I'm sure of it...
Fuck it, I'm goin' for it.
I saw a clip the other day where a Mercy on Numbani used Guardian Angel to fly right into an ulting McCree's face, and solo-ulted to gain the Resurrect invincibility for just long enough to block the McCree's shots from impacting her team.
Never imagined I'd do it - and it's worth noting I don't actually stop any of my team from getting hit by the High Noon (I think), but timing my ult so perfectly as to survive his High Noon, and then killing him, and then pushing my team on to a team kill?

While we're on the Game Diary subject...
Last night, I joined a game on Ilios. My team had a Roadhog, a Lucio and three DPS, so I went Mercy.
I popped into the game and realized I was a backfill - the reds had already claimed the point, and whoever was in my slot had bailed on the game. Or maybe they were just AFK, turning that first team fight into a 5v6, and got kicked for inactivity. Either way, I was heading in to a weakened position - but that's okay! We got a Lucio, we got a Mercy and Hog can do a lot of hilarious work on Ilios's Well...
I am almost-instantly double-teamed and killed by a Sombra and Pharah who've pushed halfway up to our spawn.
But that's okay! I'm with our Roadhog, now, and together we will oh God no Mei's walled me off from him - I try to run - I flee to our Widow, coming up from Spawn, but Pharah blows her into a thousand pieces and I'm deking round buildings, desperate for my health regen to kick in and I'm almost back to our spawn and oh fuck God the Sombra's on me and I'm dead.
I switch to Tracer.
I blitz back in, land on the point and pick their Lucio. Then I grab McCree. I snap up a health pack, and help my team finish off Zarya. Their McCree is back and he High Noons, but I zip behind a column and in one smooth, sweeping spray obliterate that monstrous Sombra. I chase McCree off the point and I'm about to finish him off... but the overtime timer runs out, and we lose the first round.
But that's okay. I got some good work done, there.
I can do this.
Died 4 times in Round 2, twice as a result of that terrifying Sombra, once as a result of pure stupidity on my part, and once as a result of pure stupidity and The Sombra - but it was seriously one of the best games of my life. I was just nailing my shots, and we took the round. In round 3? I just never died.
Gold elims, gold objective kills, gold objective time, gold damage. Fuck yeah. I have no idea what I'm gonna' do with the footage, but as a first guess I'd say a lot.
