Blizzard has been coping with every kind of bugs because the launch of Overwatch 2, and in just a few situations, have needed to take away sure characters from the sport to make sure gamers don’t use exploits within the recreation. Mei is the newest hero to vanish from the roster, and now she’s not anticipated to return for an additional couple of days. That’s proper — the mid-season patch has formally been delayed.
Whereas the unique announcement acknowledged that the delay can be indefinite, an replace as of as we speak at 4:00 pm PST tell us that we solely have to attend till the top of the week, as a result of the brand new ETA for the patch is that this Friday, November 17 at 11:00 am PST.

The patch will embrace “steadiness adjustments, bug fixes, together with those who have an effect on Mei,” in addition to “core content material updates.” The delay may also impression “the supply of Overwatch League Viewership Incentives & Perks from the Postseason matches through the interval between Oct 30 – Nov 4, together with the rotation of cosmetics within the Overwatch League store.” The day by day and weekly challenges additionally reset as we speak like regular, together with the “commonplace store refresh.”
Fortunately issues aren’t as bleak as they initially appeared, as a result of the sport by no means feels the identical when any of the heroes are lacking. After Bastion was pulled just a few weeks in the past for steadiness adjustments as properly, the web was flooded with memes, together with some hilariously edited lacking individuals (omnics?) posters. I’m a bit torn about Mei’s disappearance myself — on one hand, I sort of miss the chaos of getting an unhinged Mei participant on my crew, however I positively don’t miss getting and frozen, walled off, and icicled to the top. Regardless, a two day wait is nothing, and our favourite Arctic scientist will likely be returned to her rightful place quickly sufficient.
