Overwatch Mei freezing a poor little Roadhog

The most recent Uprising Update has added a whole bunch of new content to toy around with, but unfortunately a couple of devastating bugs as well. Genji's sword swings can occasionally become much slower which makes chaining kills nearly impossible, while Mei's primary fire and ultimate arrived without the ability to actually slow down enemies, which as you can imagine made Mei pretty much useless.

While Genji still remains bugged, as you'll see in this incredibly frustrating clip, Mei has thankfully been fixed and is now once more capable of performing her job! As for the rest of the update, since the patch notes are fairly small here they are in full:


Fixed an issue that caused the game client to crash when Overwatch was launched


Fixed a bug preventing the Null Sector bots from spawning during the payload escort phase of the Overwatch Uprising brawl

The Overwatch Uprising 2017 player icon will now unlock when you log into the event

Firing shots while standing on the payload in Overwatch Uprising will no longer cause accuracy issues for your hero

Fixed an issue preventing players from placing turrets on moving platforms (i.e. the payload)

The Overwatch Uprising scorecard now correctly tracks stats from Sombra’s Hack

The Overwatch Uprising scorecard now correctly tracks Ana’s healing stats

The Overwatch Uprising scorecard now correctly tracks D.Va’s enemy eliminations

Competitive Play

Fixed an issue that could cause inaccurate results when breaking ties based on capture percentage on Assault and Assault/Escort maps 


Fixed an issue that allowed players to move freely when being hit by Mei’s Blizzard or Endothermic Blaster

Fixed a bug causing D.Va’s hair to be rigid in the Selfie highlight intro when her Palanquin skin is equipped

Fixed a bug causing Soldier: 76’s cape to clip during the Push-Ups emote when his Strike Commander Morrison, Daredevil: 76, or Stunt Rider: 76 skin was equipped

Fixed a bug causing the ice on Pharah’s Frostbite skin to stretch when her Flair emote was activated


Fixed a bug causing glass that has been shattered by an explosion to be colored black 

Here's to hoping the team will soon have a fix for Genji as well, but not just for the newly introduced bug, but also for the rest of the issues that plague him: sword swings not registering, wall climb suddenly stopping, reflect causing both you and your target to take damage, and the good ol' graphical glitch that covers half your screen in green dragon goo until the round ends.
