An Overwatch 2 gamer captured a bug that renders Mei’s Ice Wall ability essentially useless. This is just the latest case in the continuous narrative around Overwatch 2’s rough start, a story that features server issues, hacks and bugs such as this.
Since its release earlier this month, fan sentiment regarding the game has been wild, and many reviews of Overwatch 2 have reached a similar conclusion: that it’s great, yet lacking the magic and uniqueness that made the original special. To exacerbate the negativity, players have knocked into several gameplay issues and long line times. The web has recorded an endless amount of problematic glitches, some of which have seriously hindered gamers’ ability to play or partake in the game appropriately.
However it can’t be certain the amount it affected the player’s satisfaction, it’s obvious this newest bug hindered their ability to play appropriately and might actually turn the match in the opponents favor. Reddit user - Snackles-posted a video of Mei when one of her abilities failed to work appropriately, allowing the foe to team avoid its impact. Mei abilities in Overwatch 2 are all based around ice and the ability in question, Ice Wall, is intended to hinder passage to the foe or safeguard a player’s team. Yet, in this instance, it did neither. As players approached the wall, instead of being stopped, they simply sprung up to the highest point of the wall and continued to walk up and over of it, making it totally useless.
In the short clasp, apparently a player attempts to raise the Ice Wall to forestall their opponents’ escape. The opposing team’s Benevolence is healing Orissa while the two back-pedal, as Soldier 76 provides some cover fire. The Mei player throws up the wall to forestall their retreat, which would normally set the three in a dangerous position. However instead of being impeded, all three characters manage to suddenly spring up to the highest point of the Ice Wall without skipping a beat and pass over it. The wall then serves the opposite of its intended purpose, as it begins shielding the foe from Mei and her team’s fire.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the main instance of player frustration over Mei bugs in Overwatch 2. And she certainly isn’t alone, as all sorts of misfired abilities have appeared for many characters. This is how things have been that leave one to contemplate whether the game could never have been exceptional off passed on to cook for some time longer before release. With ability issues joined with line time frustrations and a host of other bugs, player patience will wear flimsy and what positive sentiment there is for the game will drop off.
