Rolling out from the upper exit of the spawn point, Wrecking Ball took a route along the side of the map, reaching the enemy’s side of the map before they had managed to enter the central area, successfully avoiding being seen.
The enemy were taking a fairly standard route for Lijiang Night Market, running out of the main lower doorway on their side before turning towards the point. That meant that when Wrecking Ball lined up to meet them, they were perfectly positioned between him and the edge of the map.
Though Wrecking Ball ultimately ended up dying himself, a three-for-one trade is always worth taking to kick off a Control round, leaving the rest of the team with a significant advantage to fight over the point.
It also should theoretically be possible to pull off this flank without also going off the edge, either by remaining tethered or switching out of ball form to reduce momentum. Either way, it’s certainly a useful trick to have up your sleeve if you’re a Wrecking Ball player on Lijiang Tower.
The October 28 Overwatch update has arrived and the latest patch comes with a ton of critical bug fixes, many of which will give Sombra mains a huge sigh of relief.
Blizzard has been on a hot streak with major quality of life improvements over the past few days. On Oct. 20, it was Wrecking Ball and Lucio that received some much-needed changes. A few days later, on Oct. 22, multiple heroes had their health adjusted.
Now, it’s time for Sombra players to rejoice as the latest update is almost entirely for them. While a ton of bug fixes were in focus this time around, it’s clear that Sombra was Blizzard’s top priority for this patch.
If you’ve been avoiding the hero, now is the time to jump back in with your favorite hacker. Here’s everything there is to know about the latest Overwatch update.
Sombra’s Translocator was at the top of the list in the latest Overwatch patch.
Sombra is the only hero that received changes in the October 28 patch notes. Everything else on the list purely focused on general bug fixes. Two main changes for the Damage dealer should make her life easier than ever.
First up, a rare Translocator bug was squashed. Seemingly at random, her teleporting ability could go on its full six-second cooldown if it was destroyed while being used. As with most abilities in Overwatch, if they’re taken out the split moment in which they’re triggered, the game often refunds them right away. Sombra’s translocator should now function just the same.
Moreover, if you’re invisible with the hero, you can now rely on her intel more than ever before. Sombra is supposed to be notified when an enemy spots her while cloaked. That hadn’t been the case from time to time due to a pesky bug. Though the brand new update has completely fixed this issue.
