Mei takes the lead in the new Overwatch animated short
Animating Mei's Frosty :) Highlight Intro - David Gibson @PoodleTime on Vimeo
Mei is a Damage hero in Overwatch. Her Endothermic Blaster unleashes damaging icicles and frost streams, and she can Cryo-Freeze herself to guard against counterattacks, or obstruct the opposing team's movements with an Ice Wall. Mei instantly surrounds herself with a block of thick ice. She heals and ignores damage while encased, but cannot move or use abilities. Mei generates an enormous ice wall that obstructs lines of sight, stops movement, and blocks attacks. Mei deploys a weather-modification drone that emits gusts of wind and snow in a wide area. Enemies caught in the blizzard are slowed and take damage; those who linger too long are frozen solid.
