Console players can now play the event-exclusive brawl Lucioball with their friends regardless of their level in “#Overwatch.” The latest fix that was released on August 16 has already resolved the issue that players have been complaining since the launch of the arcade brawl.

Lucioball bug

When Blizzard launched Lucioball in “Overwatch,” players across all platforms noticed that they could not play the brawl with their friends that have different competitive rankings. An SR limit of 1,000 restricts the players from queuing together in the Competitive aspect of the game. However, it is not supposedly applicable to the Lucioball.

Blizzard acknowledged the issue when players started to raise complaints. Immediately, a hotfix was released in the game’s live servers for PC players to resolve the issue. However, players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One have to wait a little bit longer. According to Blizzard, they had to get approvals from Sony and Microsoft before finally deploying the hotfix.

The game developer did just obtain the approval from the console makers. Since last night, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users can play with their friends in Lucioball.

Heroes bugs

Blizzard also rolled out fixes for several heroes of the game. Among these includes a fix on Reinhardt’s Charge ability. With the new fix, it no longer pushes the characters through the walls. Aside from Reinhardt, SomBra’s Translocator was also fixed. Right now, it no longer gets her into unintended locations in the Temple of Anubis.

A fix to Doomfist’s Meteor Strike area-of-effect was also rolled out. The bug prevented players from seeing the hero’s area-of-effect radius.

Reporting and penalty system

Meanwhile, console players were anticipating that the reporting and penalty system feature for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 was going to be released. There have been countless cases of toxic players in the game. Players blame the lack of this feature in the game’s console version that spawned more of these kinds of players. It is worth noting that in the previous month, the game developer released an intensified and improved reporting and penalty system on PC. Blizzard has already assured fans that the feature will also be released soon on the console.

Despite the new reporting and penalty system [VIDEO], there are still players complaining and reporting toxic players on the game. In fact, the toxicity level has been so alarming that some popular Streamers and YouTubers opted to drop the game and play other games. Blizzard needs to do something about this issue in “Overwatch” and release a solution soon. #Lucioball bug #Hotfixes
