Overwatch: Exploiting Lucioball Bug Will Invite Trouble
Blizzard warns against using this exploit.
Overwatch is currently in the middle of a Summer Games event with Loot Boxes granting you Olympics-themed items and a new Brawl introducing Lucioball. Lucioball is composed of teams of three Lucios and is fairly non-lethal. However, there’s a way to get other characters in and thus turn the tides against other Lucios.
Blizzard had taken note of this and was working on a fix. Game director Jeff Kaplan noted on the forums that, “Apologies for this bug. We’ve attempted to fix it numerous times and have had unrelated issues preventing the fix. We hope to have a fix this week.
“In the meantime, we are in discussions with our Customer Support group to start taking action against those deliberately using the bug to play heroes other than Lucio. Please do not exploit this bug. Fair warning.”
A small update was available on Battle.net for PC to prepare for the next update so a fix is indeed likely this week. What are your thoughts on Blizzard’s response? Let us know in the comments.
