Overwatch player Matthew “super” DeLisi said that Blizzard has improved Mei’s Damage per Second (DPS) to 90 from 55.
Dr. Mei-Ling Zhou, prevalently known as Mei, is an Overwatch damage character. She uses an Endothermic Blaster that can either freeze enemies in place with a short-range ice beam or shoot a long-range icicle projectile.
She also uses the Blaster to encase herself in a solid ice block that blocks damage and heals her injuries. Her Ice Wall can hold chokepoints for brief periods, as enemies are not able to pass this Ice Wall or shoot through it.
Mei’s Cryo-Freeze instantly surrounds herself with a block of thick ice. She heals and ignores damage while encased. However, she cannot move or use her abilities.
Earlier, super and other pro players got an opportunity to playtest Overwatch 2. This early build trial had provided fans a sneak peek into the game.
Matthew “super” DeLisi Addresses Changes in Mei
Matthew had opined about the healing changes and Mercy & Zarya. He was quite critical of the changes that he had observed. However, he noticed changes in Mei, and this time he had something positive to voice out.
During a Twitch stream, super queried about Mei’s current DPS on her left click. He got the answer as 55 and was shocked as he observed that her left click is 90 per second in the sequel. He said that you don’t freeze anybody and just left-click them to death.
Earlier in May this year, Overwatch had uploaded a short clip on their Twitter account about updates on Winston’s Tesla Cannon and Mei’s Endothermic Blaster.
Mei’s weapon will no longer freeze enemies, with the main fire of the gun instead slowing enemies and dealing extra damage. Overwatch 2 is expected to release before the summer of 2022.
