Overwatch's player base has been hit with an unprecedented calamity recently when Ana players could no longer teabag the opponents they put to sleep. Thankfully, this turned out to be a bug and not an intended change since a fix is on the way.

Competitive games put a lot of stress on the participants since someone has to lose and we all want that sweet feeling of beating the enemy team. Therefore, great distress is guaranteed for the players involved as they try to duke it out. One thing no one needs is more stress and that's exactly what happened with the latest bug in Overwatch.

Getting hit by Ana's Sleep Dart can be either a stress inducer or reliever, depending on whether you are on the receiving end or if you're the one dishing out the Z's. In the case of the latter, Ana tends to wait for cooldowns while preparing a combo to finish a slept enemy off. This is when the aeons-old ritual of teabagging commences.

However, Ana players could not partake in this honoured tradition recently and the reason is that enemies who take a mid-combat nap retain their regular hitboxes as if they were standing up. Therefore, Ana can't approach their still bodies in order to perform the teabag while chanting "Are you scared?" like the ancient traditions demand.

Practitioners of the Way of the Teabag immediately took notice and discussed this problem in the halls of the Temple of Blizzard, commonly known as Overwatch forums.

It was here that a custodian of Overwatch, going by the moniker Matt Whited, acknowledged the peril the Teabagger people were in. He has confirmed that this devilish hitbox was not supposed to happen and it will be rectified in the next incarnation of Overwatch.

Therefore, Anna's efforts to get that 9.5 teabag rating on the scale of 10 was not for nought and it will bear fruit with the next patch.
