    I will personally punch tyrannus over and over if it will get Blizzard to put an end to fucking gimmick teams.

    Alternatively, I am willing to allow tyrannus' tiny baby hands ineffectually flail at me if it achieves the same result.

    "Sombra is a DPS Support Tank hybrid that heals team mates by doing damage to enemies in a nearby vicinity. Her primary weapon is a combination of Helix Rockets and Reapers shotguns, her shift makes the enemy teams screens black, e reverses their controls and her ultimate instantly freezes them in place until they die."

    Boy, am I not at all excited to play with or against a stealth hero that removes character control. I really hope that you are 100% wrong.

    that deploys something that doesnt actively shoot anything that a pubbie is never going to fucking touch.

    For hacking, I could see an ability like Zeni's, it puts it on you (you might know its on you?) and if you use a skill, it steals it instead for her to use. Or when it fires off it will be as if an enemy fired it instead of yourself? Not sure that would be useful.

    ult drains ult % of other heroes. I was going to say and gives it to nearby ones but that is just too powerful. maybe it drains herself to give to someone else?

    Re: Sombra, stealth is pretty much always gross. But a character who could negate other player's abilities in some way might be neat. Mainly because a character that could negate speed boost would open up the meta a lot. So bored with mandatory Lucio.

    Winston's bubble is most often used to protect himself and I think there's room for a tank who drops several smaller barriers that last longer (in terms of time, not damage).

    4%.

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    But a hacker character sounds cool.

    This is the most horrible thing. I would immediately quit the game forever. Then I would get myself a job at blizzard HQ and pull a Milton from Office Space.

    I get why people don't like stealth but I sort of hope she does have stealth just because I really like playing stealth characters. Maybe a sort of squishy rogue offense type, stealth and she can block or interrupt other players' abilities, does more damage from stealth but has low health and no real escape except surviving until they can stealth again (maybe a straight up cooldown, maybe it gets delayed by getting hit?) and the stealth shouldn't be perfect, so you can spot her (like a camouflage sort of thing)

    I think something like that could be cool.

    I hope its a hero reveal for Sombra SET to Rick Astley's "Never Gunna Give You Up" and s/he's an Omnic thats in love with Bastion. S/he chases him around while he runs away from her advances.

    I don't see the big deal about stealth... There are only 6 people per team. Keeping an eye out for one stealther out of those isn't that hard, and not much different than Reaper or Genji sneaking behind enemy lines.

    Stealth is a balance nightmare, without fail. Plus, keeping track of an invisible or semi-invisible enemy in the heat of a firefight is no small feat.

    Even with only 6 people on each team, there are already a billion things going on at all times, multiple pathways to check, ledges, drops, windows, and holes in the floor with surprise Phara's popping out of them. I don't need to be constantly watching for a stealth shimmer on top of all that.

    Nova is the least fun hero to play against in Heroes of the Storm. Don't add that nonsense to Overwatch.

    Who says there will be perma-cloak with a shimmer? More likely it would be TF2 style with energy or a cooldown.

    Stealth is generally only really a problem when coupled with the damage output to instagib people.
