Blizzard wants you to report Overwatch players who use the Mei exploit

Blizzard finally responded to the Mei wall glitch/exploit, and they plan to ban anyone using it. In case you don't know what the fuss is about, as the exploit is used in the 3 vs. 3 Arcade mode where it allows the cheater to get outside the map limit from where they sow havoc, without opponents being able to retaliate. 

Blizzard's long silence about the exploit was also explained by Game Director, Jeff Kaplan on the Overwatch forums: This bug was surprisingly tricky for us to track down." The news isn't all good, as he went on to explain that they're "hoping" to have it fixed. "Our hope is to have it fixed sometime tomorrow (1/5/2017 PST) but there is always the chance that our fix could fail. We're currently testing to verify the fix."

The second part of his post is about consequences for those still using the exploit should the fix fail.

"This bug is clearly an exploit and we consider this cheating. Do not attempt to reproduce this bug. If you see someone abusing this mechanic, please report them.

We will be taking action against those who abused this exploit. Overwatch is a PvP experience so that means exploiting game mechanics like this comes at a cost to those you are competing against. We take aggressive action against people who abuse game mechanics, hack or cheat. This case is no different."

I guess it's time to return to 3 vs. 3.
