So this is the new supposedly fix they did. After the custom games was introduce her Ult began to vanish after death. Now after the Uprising update her Ult does not even pop off after death, which it is suppose to! Just like Zarya.
This must be some sort of nerf. Or a quick fix before it really gets fix to what it once was when the game came out. Here is proof that it always pops off after death. (after reading some post that they did indeed "fix" this but this feels like an alternative band-aid patch rather then a real fix. Her ult is suppose to pop off as intended, not get a refund, please fix this.)

I don't like this unattended nerf, and her Ult should pop off after death like Zarya. I'm sure if you guys pulled up the files before the custom game was introduced and died with Mei and Ulting before you do, it clearly pops off.

That is how Mei's Ult is supposed to work, it is a projectile like hers. Please Fix this as soon as possible!

BUG NUMBER 2 EVEN MORE GAME BREAKING!!

Her main gun NO LONGER SLOWS DOWN ENEMIES NEITHER DOES HER ULT!

Test this out yourself. Enemies will still run away now. She is a broken character in the game.
However the time it would have taken to frozen an enemy still works.

I hope this gets fixed today!
(What Mei really needs A full revert back to pre custom games patch is what she needs. She only broke after they introduced custom games.)

We've identified that cause of the bug and have a fix for it internally. We'll get it out to you guys as soon as we can, sorry about that.


Mei got a response on the issue, though idk if they are going to fix all 3, her ult being fixed and not refunded, and both slow effects on her gun and ult.
Im starting to think this is a nerf too. They havent really fixed it in a very long time. Then again why nerf Mei? Why touch mei to begin with?

Its all because of the custom games. Ever since that came out, her ult broke, now she is unplayable.
This is a bizarre nerf, as it does nothing but hinder one of Mei's core mechanics. :/
Wait for fix next major patch

bro, this WAS the major patch
This happened to me yesterday for the first time. It definately feels like a bug because it drains her whole ult meter.
Bull!@#$ they haven't addressed it
The only good Mei is a broken Mei.
I made this post to alert every player on this forum about how broken Mei is right now.
what is the point of doing this…her entire thing is freezing people, why would they remove that from her?? when you're getting frozen you slow down and eventually stop moving…wtf is this blizzard
Soldier heal disappers as well if it was mid flight when soldier died, easy to reproduce by making it drop off a high ledge and dying.

a trashtalking widow main?

its too easy
So actually no decreasing movement speed when getting freezed anymore?
It would have been enough to tone it down a tiny bit, but this is kinda strange.
Bumping this thread. Please fix Mei!

HER GUN NO LONGER SLOWS! WTF!

She was already broken. All of Mei's friends died in their cryopods leaving her alone during the omnic crisis in Antarctica for YEARS.

I doubt those were her only friends in her lifetime. also what about Winston?
Something to test tonight. Looks like somebody didn't fully think through all the possibilities of some tiny change elsewhere in the movement speed calculation.
