HERO UPDATES

Lúcio
  • Wall Ride
    • Activating Wall Ride will now cause the flag to drop during Capture the Flag matches

Developer Comments: Lúcio’s Wall Ride allowed him to reach unintended places in Capture the Flag maps, which made it overly difficult for opponents to stop him. So, we have changed the ability to cause the flag to drop instead for better balanced matches.
