Issues with Echo, will update as they come up

RIGHT???
THAT’S WHAT I SAID ON PTR
but it didn’t matter

It’s kind of like dva because it’s more limited, but in reality it works more like mercy. Mercy’s ult in cooldown sigh

I think is this intentional. Sombra hack doesn’t stop Mercy ult flight either.

Nope.

The general rule is, if an ability can be cancelled by a stun it will be cancelled by hack (accretion, micro missles, kinetic grasp, deflect, etc).

Yes, Echo’s Flight ability function similar to D.va so I do not understand why this is not hack-able.

As far as her ultimate, this is a tough one since she can duplicate any hero, and all heroes function differently against Sombra’s hack.

Well Mercy is a transformation ULT, Echo’s flight is an ability that functions outside the rules.

these are both intended

Wait why not the flight?

I was right. This is consistent with Mercy’s ult since Mercy can still fly. And thanks for the duplicate thing.

Is Echo supposed to be in competitive right now? I thought there was a 2 week waiting period after she released to be put in comp?

My question is why the emp one?

From what I saw the D.va bomb and bob stay, unless the isolation is making me crazy

Why does it not interrupt flight? I considered it closest to a high noon which can be hacked.

Good. EMP lasts too long anyways. At least one hero can get away from the minute long hack at the end of an ult.

For Flight, i believe Hack cancels the initial burst movement because that part of Flight is channeled, but the Flight section [free flight with a duration of 3 seconds] isn’t channeled therefore not Hack-able.

High noon is channeled. That is still hackable

Moira ult is channeled. That is still hackable

Shall I continue?

This kinda make this question all the more relevant then: Why play Pharah ever when Echo does everything she can but way better and is far less vulnerable?

Hey Jeff, a quick question if I may, is there any way we could get Echo’s floating tied to the glide ability instead of her secondary fire on controllers?

It’s a little problematic how it’s set up currently

Because it makes sense?
