No one likes a cheater, we all know that. Blizzard have now come out and said that they will punish anyone who plays as a character other Lucio in the limited time gamemode Lucioball.
The idea of Lucioball is that everyone plays as Lucio, a guy without a gun. He can only use the abilities that he has to push a ball into the opposing goal. This sounds simple enough and puts everyone on a level playing field.
But at the moment there is the possibility that not everything will be level. Players have found a way to play as characters other than Lucio, meaning that they will be equipped with a gun. This obviously changes and ruins the game somewhat. With the ability to shoot players, the players with the guns will have a massive advantage over anyone who is playing as Lucio.Blizzard have said that they are aware of the problem and are working on fixing it, although they have run into a few problems on the way. “Apologies for this bug. We’ve attempted to fix it numerous times and have had unrelated issues preventing the fix,” director Jeff Kaplan said “We hope to have a fix this week.”
He also went on to talk about why people shouldn’t use this exploit to there advantage. “In the meantime, we are in discussions with our Customer Support group to start taking action against those deliberately using the bug to play heroes other than Lucio,” he said. “Please do not exploit this bug. Fair warning.”
So remember folks, cheaters never prosper.
