OP SOMBRA CHANGES?

Post by RyRaiderDonut » February 8th, 2018, 11:31 pm

Weapon spread for Sombra will be decreased by 10 percent, and hacking speed will see an increase from .8 seconds to .65 seconds. Hacking will also disable more hero abilities, like Genji's Double Jump and Wall Climb, Pharah's Hover Jets, Hanzo's Wall Climb, and Mercy's Angelic Descent.

Basically, any ability that requires a button press will be vulnerable to hack.
* No longer gains ult from health pack healing
* Weapon Spread decreased by 10%
* Hacking speed increased from 0.8s to 0.65s

I honestly think this makes her a viable offensive hero. Currently, she was only viable when she had her ult. She could counter tracer some if you could hack her without taking damage. She will put out more consistent dmg, and be a harder counter to the small hit-box heros by hacking them.

To offset the damage increase though, they drastically lowered her ult charge rate by removing health packs healing teammates charging her ult. So she will no longer have it every engagement, which feels better considering it is a game-breaking ult if done well and the team is clumped together.

This is out! With accompanying Mei and Doomfist buffs. Though those are far less than the one Sombra is getting.
