I cried when I first saw Sombra at the 2016 BlizzCon opening keynote.

He called it, not without reason, "CS:GO with an Overwatch reskin".Riot's first ever shooter pinches its format and insta-killing weaponry from Counter-Strike, then sprinkles in Overwatch-style abilities. Cian liked it, overall, but felt it needed to be more distinct. "It’s not as good at doing what either of those games specialise in", he said, "and…
I skulk through a bottleneck boulevard before pausing to launch my newly-charged sonar arrow at a wall. Its my signature ability, and reveals the locations of all enemies within a small radius. As the timer winds down, I decide it’s time for a last-ditch effort to plant the spike. I launch myself around the corner and ru-Bang! I don’t see where it comes from, but…
