Opinion

Did bebe kill sombra?

Chiu on This
A short and regular opinion blast from Stephen Chiu

‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast

Today EnVyUs played X6 in APEX. What surprised me when I was watching was that bebe’s Zenyatta completely nullified chipshajen’s Sombra play, specifically his ult usage. Every time sombra was about to use the ult, bebe popped his own ult right before nullifying the effect of his team’s inability to use abilities for the duration. He was rarely caught out and the few times he was, his teammate GILY popped his Lucio ult instead, which functions a similar role, but obviously less effective. Because of the positioning of the two support players, neither player could both be ulted by Sombra at the same time.

While this likely isn’t a play invented by bebe (likely it evolved in KR scrims/ladder), it’s a striking development in terms of the meta and will likely force teams to adapt or change in the upcoming matches as that means Sombra can’t just use an ult to start a frontal assault, but must wait for a different player to pick off one of the supports and then ult the other support to start an attack theoretically.
