What the dizzle happened there.
I didn't know why the ball was getting bigger.
Then it hit me.

Looks like the one time that worked right, I just got off a game where I got hooked, and I went spinning around Roadhog once and neither of know where we are xD

It's because the hook caught her at the beginning of a blink. Blink doesn't make her disappear like recall, it just makes her move really fast. This is one of those times that before the fix she would have gotten stuck on the wall or ended up behind Roadhog and gotten away.

They seriously broke hook with the latest "fix".

It looks a million times dumber when a character snaps back to where they were when the hook connected and then get pulled.

Tracer blinked exactly when she got hooked. In my personal experience (hooking and being hooked) if something's in the way, they'll either slide around it or stop at the obstruction. I'm not sure why that Tracer didn't just get pulled into a fall down into the furnace.

This is disgusting. From my experience, popping an ice wall in between them doesn't work for s*** either. That hook of his is stupid broken. I'd be much more willing to accept it if it had a shorter range.

More QQ because people don't understand mechanics.

She got hit, then hit blink (almost simultaneously, but the hook resolved first) so she got brought in like she should. What's the problem? There's a lag time between getting hit and getting dragged. That's the only "problem" with the hook.

I had an instance where a friend was hooked, but the game just decided he shouldn't get pulled for some reason and instead he should be launched 30 meters in the air.

All in all, I'd say it was a pretty good decision.
