Thank you, can someone do these things for Bastion and Symmetra too? I love to see Sombra get her buff and fixes as she also my main too.
If sombra gets her bugs fixed it would be amazing :) no more dying because translocater is a buggy mess YAY.....

I'd love to see a Sym thread like this. Maybe it'll make her better support overall.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this yet... but I've also noticed that the kill feed assists for Sombra is very inconsistent. Sometimes I will not get credit for an assist, when another player also contributes an assist to a hacked target.

I think it happens when you hack a target, and then another effect happens afterward like Grav, Halt, or something Ana does. Try to look out for it yourself, because I swear I'm not crazy.
I've noticed this too, and for Orisa and her Supercharger.
These bug collection threads are a great thing to see coming up. While reworking or buffs and nerfs may be harder to do to bring heroes into a good place, minimizing the amount of bugs a hero has is always going to be a great way to help them out in a fully fair way. I wish Blizzard should pin these collection threads on the forums so that everyone has a much easier way to contribute to keeping track of these. No one wants another "What's wrong with Doomfist?" kind of comment because they claim not to see this stuff.

Agreed, we just need for more people to see and help out so that we can all work on making Sombra not buggy. Hopefully that would in turn help in making clear what Sombra needs for buffs/nerfs.
Good work. I know nothing about Sombra.

Glad somebody is keeping track.

Just like iSinner, how he exemplified how buggy Doomfist was and gave everyone - including the developers - how desperate of a fix its needed.

Hopefully the same can be done for Sombra.
Playing her I have felt the undeserving backhand of the Blizzard Gods with these bugs.

I 100% support <3
So many of these bugs have happened to me multi-able times. Especially bug 3, I can't count how many times I've transported out of a close-call only to get killed right after I teleport. Great work!

Thank you everyone for the support, so far we managed to reach over 100 likes. The more attention, the sooner we can fix Sombra.
I don't know why Sombra threads are ignored, she is at least one of the top3 worst heroes. (She is insanly fun to play though)
I don't know did Blizzard forget about her?
She needs a buff to her kit in some places and a nerf to her ult charge in return. Her being so focused on her goldy ult just hurts her bad.

Inspired by iSinner's bug collection on Doomfist, I decided to do the same thing with Sombra.
Go here to see the Reddit Post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/7h0imk/all_of_sombras_detrimental_bugs/

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Translocator Bugs
Bug 1
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.
Example(s):

1.1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QrAWeEYkHY
1.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6CIFrhqWcY
1.3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jqzDJNgsAI

Bug 2
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.
Example(s):

2.1 https://gfycat.com/FlashyImpartialAuklet
2.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1VRDZKdS50&feature=youtu.be
2.3 https://youtu.be/WFNLwu0MDH0?t=6m51s

Bug 3
Lagging Hitbox: Sombra's hitbox lingers whenever she teleports which makes it annoying for evading enemies in close calls.
Example(s):

3.1 https://gfycat.com/WelcomeAccurateElver
3.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJ3VSH-Z4os
3.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1VRDZKdS50&feature=youtu.be
3.5 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1p3jEqq8OL8&feature=youtu.be
3.6 https://gfycat.com/LoathsomeLazyGlobefish
3.7 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jt2EAcjRX1Q
3.8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhEp8cUdFQo
3.9 https://youtu.be/OtA-GfmmUiA?t=1m24s - This one also is an example of bug 4

Bug 4
Sporadic Camera: When Translocating, the users camera will move in involuntary movements, which would be dangerous in fights.
Example(s):

4.1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_SWx1DyjAk
4.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCHNtFzoP3E
4.3 https://gfycat.com/UnacceptableShadyKingbird
4.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoYSDG9GDzI
4.5 http://xboxdvr.com/gamer/twistedSPOON/video/39632886

Bug 5
Delay Camera Movement: When moving with Translocator, the continual movement of the camera would be halted before continually registering the direction of movement.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_AuopcN3d0&feature=youtu.be

Hack Bugs
Bug 6
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.
Example(s):

5.1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo4L7UNC2pQ
5.2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gBMmy3t7Os
5.3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22fGKSyfhkk
5.4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u71Ag1C4mDY

5.7 https://plays.tv/video/59f0cc057c1e5c4f65/hack-not-going-off-on-a-mercy-bug-

Bug 7
Hacked Health Pack Removal: Health Pack will still take into account of the timer of the previous Hack and ignore the refresh.
Example(s):
6.1 https://www.reddit.com/r/SombraMains/comments/77woqy/health_pack_doesnt_hack_sombra_bug_lol/
