Consistent healing, heals through shields, res, self repair. No wonder she is picked so much; Ana can't heal this consistently, neither through barriers.

Ana has less of a bullseye on her because her hip fire shoots darts without tracing, which can be handy for healing longer without drawing attention specifically to herself. The utility of biotic grenade and tranquilizing is amazing when you get a good feel for them too. Just trade-offs, is all.

My season 5 experience is: the team with a Mercy wins; if both have Mercy, then the one that survives longer wins.

I think Ana is the better character but you need someone really skilled with her. A mediocre or bad Ana is almost like not even having a healer.

Ana has better potential but at lower ranks is just another sniper on a team which will already have 2.

Winston and DVa jumps on someone, Ana literally can't do anything, the barrier will block all incoming healing, matrix will probably eat the nade.

Unless the ally has the sense to get on Ana's side of the barrier, and if DVa's using defence matrix she's not dealing damage. Not saying barriers aren't going to reduce Ana's effectiveness a bit, but I don't think they're as big an issue as you make out.

She might not gel as well in a dive comp what with her lack of mobility and difficulty healing mobile allies, but her kit still has plenty of utility.

Season 5 is more accurately described as which dive comp can kill both supports first.

Ana, for me, seems highly reliant on your team comp. If you're running a tank-reliant comp, she's your go-to since she can heal them much more consistently (i.e. she doesn't need to be at such a close range), plus you can't go wrong with Nanoing most tanks. If you're running a squishy-heavy comp, though, Ana's usefulness drops off quickly since smaller targets are tougher to land shots on and they don't benefit from burst healing as much as a tank does. In those situations, Mercy is almost always the better pick.
So Jill Valentine planned a three-way with Chris and Barry, but called it off at the last minute.
Needless to say, she was almost a Jill sandwich.
