To cut to the point, for over 6 months, Sombra is still a buggy hero. None of the fixes have actually taken place, nor has the LOS change to Sombra’s Hack has done any favours for anyone. This thread will be listing all of the bugs that have been “fixed” and/or new bugs that came from the game updates overall.
This issue needs the persistent help from everyone, otherwise we would get nowhere being told that “the issue was dealt with” despite it being more than 6 months since I and others collectively found all the evidence the megathread on the old forums. If we all work together, let us see how long this would take to actually see some action.
Ideally, this thread won’t be placed or moved to the Bug Report page as it doesn’t have the same traffic or attention that this thread gets.
Phantom Translocate: Whenever you throw Translocator, you would go to teleport to safety, it instead teleports you on the spot you were on, making it hard to evade to safety. (Stated to be fixed in Patch 1.8.0)
Ghost Throw: Sometimes when you throw your Translocator, whether to get into danger or out of it, it shows the animation for the Translocator but nothing comes out. (Stated to be fixed in Patch 1.14.1)
Lagging Hitbox: Sombra’s hitbox lingers whenever she teleports which makes it annoying for evading enemies in close calls. (Statted to be fixed in Patch 1.13.0)
Sporadic Camera: When Translocating, the users camera will move in involuntary movements, which would be dangerous in fights. This bug is the follow up effect of the Lagging Hitbox bug. (No word of fix)
Suicide Translocate: Instead of Throwing the Translocator and expecting it to fail, this causes the Translocate to continue in undesirable locations that lead to obvious death, unless you wait out all of the 20 seconds. (This is the most recent and the most aggressive of all the bugs that Sombra has dealt with)
Sombra Hack Priority: Hack still persists when hacking a Reaper doing Wraith, a Tracer Recalls, or even when someone kills them in a small window you lose your Hack. (Despite the nerf to make it more harder to play Sombra, this made brought about a whole slew of bugs)
Hack Cast Stutter: Casting Hack would have the chance of cancelling Hack whilst having no LOS breakage. (No word of fix)
Hack Cast Slide: Casting Hack would slide to a new target whilst continuing the casting duration as if it were the original locked-on target. (No word of fix)
Hack Buff Null: Hack takes the original 0.8-1 second cast time as opposed to the new 6.5 cast time. (No word of fix)
Tap Hack: An incomplete casting of Hack that still allows the effect of Hack. (This one is bad for both ends)
Health Pack Ownership: The Hacked health pack will now display that it belongs to the enemy as opposed to your allies. (No word of fix yet)
Orisa Interaction: Sombra using EMP to destroy shields doesn’t destroy shield. (No word of Fix)
Brig/Rein Interaction: Shield has some funky interaction whether the shield is up or it is being cast. (No word of fix)
All of these have been taken as of March 2018 with WorstSombra’s recent video being the biggest contributor to this list; now there’s no denying that Sombra NEEDS to be revisited and would need continuous reinforcement of “watching over” if this continues happening. Enough is enough. We don’t need nerfs to compensate for bug fixes, just fix her.
