They didn't really do anything but play the standard support role, healing and buffing players as needed. The only thing I can think of that might have caused this is Genji's reflect.

    "heal and buff players as needed" well... thats exactly what she is supposed to do, right? How does that qualify as "didn't really do anything"?

    I meant to say 'didn't really do anything special', as in played a support role. I've seen many people play Mercy and do nothing but try to get kills.

You can get both an elimination and a defensive assist if you damage an enemy that gets finished off by a teammate you're healing. With that it's possible to exceed 100% kill participation.

I'm not deleting that for posterity, but it's completely wrong, and the real reason is that if someone destroys Torbjorn's turret (possibly Widow's mines, Junrkat's deployables, Mei's wall, and others, but I can't test) while being healed or buffed by Mercy, they won't get an elimination, but Mercy will gain an assist.

    Does this mean it's theoretically possible to get 200%?

    @acbabis Yes, but that means your whole team is huddling around you and only shooting targets you've already injured, and only after you've healed/buffed them. So it's not practical at all. Jun 8, 2016 at 20:24
  • Would healing and damage boosting someone while they kill an enemy also count as double?

  • @Bonnici You cant do both of those at once.

  • @Matt I mean if you heal while they are damaging someone then damage boost them when they kill the same enemy.
