Lúcioball players across all consoles can now play with their friends regardless of their competitive Overwatch level.

Blizzard made note of a bug last week that kept players with dramatically different competitive Overwatch rankings from playing Lúcioball together. There’s a 1,000 SR limit that keeps players from queuing together in competitive Overwatch, and it was a mistake to apply that number to Lúcioball, Blizzard said.

A hotfix went live almost immediately for PC players, but console players had to wait for approval from Microsoft and Sony. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players should have received the new patch with the Lúcioball fix last night.

The 1,000 SR limit does still exist for players queuing for competitive Lúcioball, however, but it’s only in regards to the mode itself. Once a player has completed their Copa Lúcioball placement matches, however, their Lúcioball SR will prevent them from playing with those with a dramatically different SR in the mode itself. Traditional competitive Overwatch SR doesn’t matter, and never will for Lúcioball.

Alongside the Lúcioball changes, Blizzard fixed a few key bugs. Reinhardt’s Charge ability no longer pushes characters through walls, and Sombra’s Translocator no longer lets her reach unintended locations on Temple of Anubus. Likewise, a bug that prevented all players from seeing the Doomfist Meteor Strike area-of-effect circle has been fixed, according to the patch notes.

Overwatch’s Summer Games will run through Aug. 28, so players still have a ton of time to test our their Lúcioball skills.
