don't wipe out Mei's Ult charge if I swap off of her.

General Discussion
Save it for if I swap back.

I really wish there was a way to convert Ults between characters, but this is unlikely to happen. So this is my next best idea.
Ults don't charge at the same rate depending on the hero so no, it will never happen.
right, but why waste it?

it's funny that a game that allows swapping, puts a penalty on it.

That's why you have to consider and time each swap carefully, and make sure you don't lose too much ult charge if you switch.
Gets ult in 5 seconds as tracer
Swap it for a dva bomb

Doesn't seem fair
Unless they added conversion, so full tracer ult wouldn't give you a full dva bomb, but maybe like 25% or something.
I tink the way it is implemented is good. You are encouraged to switch, but encouraged to not swap drastically all the time.

Self Destruct isn't even the way this would be exploited.

Try Graviton Surge.
Assuming this could ever be a thing:

If this ever could be a feature, Ults run off a point based system already; why couldn't they just shuffle the points over with a 50% or so loss?

For comparison/examples:
Tracer: 1125
562 Points post 50% loss (40.8% of a DVA bomb/Rein slam)
DVA: 1375 Points
687 Points post 50% loss (61% of a Tracer Bomb)
Roadhog: 2000 Points (1000 Points) (Instantly charged Symmetra Ult)
Moira: 2125 (1062 Points post 50% loss)

Now that I look at it, maybe a point cap of 750 should be introduced if this became a feature (most likely won't).
