Year Of The Dog Sombra Changes

Post by Furball » Thu Feb 08, 2018 8:25 pm

Just getting in a flow with her, and now this:

From Geoff Goodman, Principal Overwatch Designer:

A few changes that are being worked on accidentally found their way into the most recent patch. This is unintentional and we're working on removing these.

We're planning on putting up a new PTR soon that has these changes (and more), so consider this a sneak peak.

Here are the complete changes (so far) for Sombra that we are looking to test out soon:

* No longer gains ult from health pack healing
* Weapon Spread decreased by 10%
* Hacking speed increased from 0.8s to 0.65s
* Hacking will disable more abilities. Basically any ability that requires a button press will also be disabled. Here is a list:

Genji - Double Jump/Wall Climb
Pharah - Hover Jets
Hanzo - Wall Climb
Lucio - currently running Crossfade song will be disabled
Mercy - Angelic Descent

The idea here is to take some power out of her ult (and awkwardness of ult gain through health packs), and give her more power and usefulness in the rest of her kit.

^^ I had no idea, that's awesome! Hope you can catch me during one of my moments of brilliance, instead of my hours of terrible play, lol...

Please send me a whisper the next time you spec me. Usually the only time I drop out of a game is if one of my friends sends me an invite to group up.

I've been playing with a girl named blamemercy quite a bit, who is really good, funny, and motivated to win fast because she's prego and always has to pee. Our games would be great to spec.
