Brigitte is live in Overwatch, but more importantly Sombra got nerfed.


So yeah.  Brigitte's up, but she won't be available in competitive mode until Season 10 starts - around May 15th.  Not kidding, you can't play her in comp for like six weeks.  Her intro vid's pretty good.

More importantly...


A ton of bug fixes went up with Brigitte's patch - notably, now you'll be able to see your teammates' ult charges on the team info screen, so I won't have to constantly bug my Zarya for her ult charge percentage - handy!

But here's the best bit:
  • Now goes on a 2-second cooldown when interrupted by damage
  • Now more consistently interrupted when targets break line of sight
Developer Comments: We’re also removing the 0.1 second window of time during a hack where it couldn’t be canceled via line of sight or with other abilities including Tracer’s Recall and Zarya’s Particle Barrier, which was originally put in place so the hack wouldn’t be interrupted by small objects such as light posts. We’ve implemented a separate fix for that issue, so she should still be unaffected by those small objects.

This.  Is.  Awesome.  I can't count the number of times I've blinked out of Sombra's range around a corner or hit Rewind, only to find myself hacked anyway.  Here's hopin' this solves that bullshit ability's yet more excessive level of bullshit.
