Overwatch 2’s Mid-Season Patch Delayed, Leaving Mei Unplayable

Overwatch 2’s mid-season update was delayed at the last minute, making original hero Mei unplayable for the time being.

Posted in official forum confirmed that the patch was postponed due to an unexplained “major issue” that was discovered shortly before the patch went live.

“Today’s patch is delayed as we work to resolve critical issues,” Blizzard confirmed. “We will provide an update here and activate the patch as soon as the issue is resolved.” The patch will go live on November 17th at 11am PST, so Mei’s main her users are not so much. No need to wait long.

Mei was removed from the game earlier this month due to a bug that allowed her to reach out-of-range locations using her Ice Wall ability. Essentially, players could exploit this to hide out of reach of other players.

“We’re temporarily disabling Mei to address a bug in the Ice Wall ability that allowed heroes to reach unintended locations,” Blizzard said at the time. We aim to address this quickly and bring Mei back in the next patch scheduled for November 15th.”

The postponed patch also includes several other changes, including “upcoming balance changes, bug fixes including those affecting Mei, and core content updates planned for this patch.” increase.

“This delay will also affect the delivery of Overwatch League viewer incentives and perks from postseason games between October 30th and November 4th, as well as the rotation of cosmetics in the Overwatch League shop. Daily and weekly challenges, as well as regular shop updates, continued as planned.

IGN’s review of Overwatch 2 was 8/10, stating, “Overwatch 2 breathes new life into what was once the sharpest multiplayer shooter before Blizzard’s distraction dulls its edges. I did.”
