All of Mei’s skills revolve round ice, whether or not slowing down enemies with a snowy spray or incubating in a cocoon of ice. Nevertheless, a compilation on Reddit showcases varied issues together with her Ice Wall potential, which appears to be in want of some critical TLC.

The flexibility is at present failing to do all three, regardless of solely having its well being up to date within the transition to Overwatch 2. Reddit person u/Donler lays out an inventory of issues that appear to indicate the wall is not all the time as strong accurately. Gamers are constantly falling off, strolling over and flying by the wall, and it is also frequently failing to dam injury, amongst a number of different inconsistencies. The compilation reveals enemies bypassing the wall with their Final Talents, permitting them to get rid of total groups. Blizzard has at present not addressed the problem, and it’s not on their record of identified bugs.
