@MandatoryIDtag I think you are right. I felt sometimes issue like this. My guess would be that It's server fault since they added this new event so servers having some hard time. Or it's just another bug that has been added with the update.
@SethCurry Agreed to an extent, i think the problem with octane is HOW do you make him better. The upcoming hitbox fix will be a nice touch but i mean lets be honest, it's going to take more than removing his headshot magnet status to make him truly viable him higher tier play.
As he is, he's a fun legend to play but i would never use him in a competitive manner.

He aint viable at any level. Not a single pick for him at any of all the tournaments around the world, which speaks for itself. And lets be real. All of the streamers, from mid to high to top to pro are not using him as well. They use what? Wraith, Path, and Lifeline/Wattson before, now Gibby/Lifeline/Wattson.
I think Hakis was using a Bangalore for a brief period, but now its on Path train now.
His ult is the worst of all legends and need a total rework.
His passive/tactical are kinda okay, not on Wraith or Path level, but are okay, but he need a new ultimate and his hitbox fixed. You can`t buff him more, because it will be a complete different character at the end and there is no sense in that, it will be easier and better for them to just create a new one.
Octane is not a team based player even after the patch note. I have a suggested ult for octane it’s that he provides a 20% percent stimulus for his teammate and he takes 10% less damage during this period and this ult lasts for 8 seconds. What do you think about this.
@TastyChicken564 I think the trouble with him as a legend is he isnt meant to be the ultimate team player...which in a team play based game is a bit counter productive.
I like the idea of a team wide stim as his ult, the damage resistance bit makes it a little complicated though....would you want to run up against a speed buffed gibraltar with 25% damage resistance?
@GH0STSUSP3CT Yeaah, I mean the double jump is a nice touch, but it just lacks any real oomph once you've passed the highest arc of your jump, which for me makes it a pretty weak counter to the predictable arc...seeing as you can still be shot with great ease.
I do know that Crypto loba and revenant are legends that are still being looked into for improvement...hopefully octane is still in that list and they don't write his last buff off as a success.
Only time will tell I suppose.
