Yesterday's surprise Overwatch patch brought with it some balance changes — most importantly (to me), Mei's buff, a thing of both immeasurable good and evil. Blizzard expanded Mei's ultimate move, also called "Blizzard", from 8m to 10m. Enemies within its circumference are quickly frozen, sitting ducks for a hero like Pharah to blast them with her ultimate move. Great! But, if you're like me, and like Mei, perhaps you're a little too derpy for this great, icy responsibility.
Yesterday, when we reported on the patch's early release, I immediately logged onto Battle.net to test out Mei's buff. Defending the Temple of Anubis, I thought I'd found the perfect moment to strike with her 10m Blizzard. All the enemies were clustered together. My team was rushing in. I felt great.
Freeze! Don't move!
Five enemies frozen Hell yeah! Eat my icicles! I am the most useful defence hero ever!
And then I checked the clock...
Don't be like me. Don't be like Mei. Think of the team.
