Lucio ball is back with a competitive portion called Copa Lucio Ball. Sydney Australia is the new stadium for Lucio Ball. There are top 500, sprays for placing and being in top 500, and massive tilt for all. Players can no longer stand in the enemy goal and boop the enemy goalie out of the way. Lucio’s ultimate will now allows you to move much faster, you can use his alternate ability to boop the ball more quickly, and he jumps a lot higher.

LucioBall Sprays

  • 3 LucioBall Achievement Sprays: Bicycle Kick, Goal Blossom, Safe Hands
  • 2 LucioBall Competitive Sprays: Copa LucioBall Competitor, Copa LucioBall Hero

This will be the first event that the lootboxes have the reduced dupe rate, so potentially players have an increased chance of getting more new items and having a better experience with this event.  Not everyone has +8 hours to farm boxes in game or spend money on cosmetics that don’t affect anything. Luckily, players will be able to unlock the old skins for credits at a discounted price as well as the new skins. Last year’s Summer Games cosmetics will cost 75 credits if they are rare, 250 for epic, and 1000 for legendary.
