We don't need her.

We already have Diablo. They would be too similar.

One prime evil is enough.

Ok that got a laugh out of me. Well played.

I'm totally going to out myself as that guy, but I have a blast with Mei in Overwatch and I personally hope we get around to adding her at some point.


Tbh some of her stuff overlaps with jaina, I'd love to see mei and bring in a reign of terror on all the QM players tho.

I would love to see her added, and to synergize with Jaina, making a team up between the two really strong :D (Like maybe she deals extra damage to Chilled targets, but only one of her attacks actually chills targets, making her attacks stronger when around Jaina (or she has to talent into chilled, freeing up that talent tier for something else when with Jaina))

I'd be curious how her kit could be implemented without making Tassadar's force wall seem superfluous.

That's assuming Ice Wall would not be a heroic, of course. Could be a lot of fun. Walls have led to cheeky plays in both games.
Mei is bae!

I would love to have Mei in the Nexus!

KT skin that makes him look like a chippendales dancer and a countless horde of petite model sized female butts- where's the love for the ToB crowd????


Which one would that be? Because either we have very different thoughts on how the chippendales look or I have never seen that skin, and I thought I knew all of his.....

They could make her wall on a longer CD, longer duration but be destructible as in OW. That would make enough difference to Tassadar´s short CD, short duration indestructible wall in my opinion.

The synergy and overlap with Jaina are quite obvious. I think they can bypass the overlaps by having her cold do different things as attack speed /damage reduction instead of slow/damage boost.

Please not before Reinhardt. Of all the OW characters I think he deserves priority =)

if you're going to take the time to read the forums, can you budget your time to reply to a little more serious topic as game designer?

people are complaining pages and pages every day about quick match matchmaker and you're replying to a joke topic

Blizz would make a ton of money with Mei and an awesome non-sjw inspired real swimsuit skin for her. *wink wink*


Blizzard, you can just withdraw money from my account at your leisure if you release Mei in hots, especially with sexy skins.
Who is Mei?

I think mei would make a better warrior. She has lots of survivability and slow + stun cc.

Self heal + ice block all in 1 ability in her base kit would be so good.
If i had to say what Mei's kit should be, its probably something like this:

Q: Icicle

Her Alt fire from OW, ranged skillshot poke that also deals bonus damage to enemies slowed or frozen by her primary fire, dealing more the more slowed they are. Possibly give it multiple charges. Relatively low damage without being used on frozen enemies. Can be upgraded through talents to do things like penetrate (gives her powerful waveclear), add more charges, etc.

W: Ice Wall

An isolation based ability. Would be like Alarak Telekinesis in that it cannot be quick cast, you start from one side of the wall, and move you mouse in the direction you want the ice wall to go to cast it. This make it very flexible. It can be targeted and damaged and broken, so it is not invincible. Lasts only for a short time. Can be talented into to increase cast range, size, health, etc.

E: Cryo-Freeze

Mei enters stasis for a few seconds, and self heals for the time she spends in it. Can be canceled at any time. Can be talented into to increase duration, reduce cooldown, or move slowly while the ability is active

R1: Blizzard

Basically apply mei's auto attacks to any enemies within a circular AoE, to slow then freeze them. lvl 20 probably gives it a much larger radius.

R2: ???

Activate to place an ally in Cryo-Stasis, healing them for the duration. Basically her ice block projected onto a teammate. Lvl 20 would probably increase heal amount or give it a second charge or something.

Trait: Endothermic Blaster

Mei's autos penetrate multiple enemies. Her AA range would probably be around 3 or so. Enemies hit by her auto attack get slowed progressively more the longer they are in its area of effect, until it finally "freezes" them, stunning them for a reasonable duration. Her autos would be very low damage, mostly there for the slowing utility.

Mei would be a bulky warrior with lots of survivability who specializes in splitting up teams, isolating targets, CCing problematic enemies, and assisting her allies in ganks against overextended opponents.
I like Mei as a tank too.Similar to Dva, that hefty eskimo getup would get destroyed and she'll have a variety of new skills available -- like double thigh crush.
The primary reason to play mei is so you can make Arnold Schwarzenegger's Mr Freeze level ice puns in chat.

OK, if people are worried about MATCHMAKING in QP, they need to rethink their approach to the game. It's a dice roll, and designed to be that way. Don't take it seriously.

Now if you want to complain that MMR shouldn't be affected by QP, that's another kettle of fish.
