A pretty serious and potentially game breaking Mei bug was recently discovered in Overwatch that is easy to replicate and unfortunately provides trolls with a brand new way to piss people off. Mei can apparently end games whenever she wants. Check out the twitch clip from user aimbotcalvin.

When playing on the Junkertown map, if someone playing as Mei on the attacking side continuously freezes the motorcycle in the starting area, the game bugs out and the match will be canceled. An error message appears in the chat log stating, “The server closed due to an unexpected error” while every player in the match is kicked back to the main menu. Needless to say, this is a huge issue that affects competitive play significantly. Imagine how frustrating it would be to have someone abuse this glitch and intentionally end a competitive match right before you beat them so that they avoid losing rank while also preventing you from receiving an SR increase. Hopefully Blizzard can patch this out soon. Until then, pray no one picks Mei on Junkertown.
