Sombra is 30 years old
She came from the Omnicrisis event in Mexico where the war destroyed much of country's infrastructure
She became a hacker to survive as a kid, stealing money to get by in a war-torn Mexico
The Soldier 76 short, "Hero," first introduced the revolutionary group that took Sombra in as a child: Los Muertos
Sombra discovered a conspiracy in the heart of the events of Mexico--unfortunately it backfired on her, she was overconfident, and she had to go underground where she augmented herself to become part computer
At this point she joined Talon where she currently works
Sombra is a perfect example of an unreliable narrator, who is a shade of gray: she's not black and white, she's meant to be mysterious
Sombra started out with the idea of a throwing dagger/knives hero. Eventually the cyberpunk aesthetic was tried and it was a hit internally:
She was supposed to be very agile, stealthy: flashy

BlizzCon 2015 - Overwatch Dev Chat and Q&A
There was a surprise panel at the Darkmoone Faire stage featuring the Overwatch developers.
The team started off by giving some tips and tricks for Zarya, one of the Warriors in the game. Zarya is not a very good solo tank so the devs gave some tips.
You could find a partner and run 2 Zaryas. You both have a personal shield and a shield you can place on the other player for extra tankiness.
Zarya really shines at high energy levels. Toss a shield on enemies that are about to enter combat to build the power level.
Q: How accurate is the team composition tips system?
A: It's not so much that they want to enforce a meta, but more that they want to inform players that many team composition should have a healer or a tank. The more you play, the less you have to rely on the system to guide you. The system is there for those who are lost.
